The man behind one of Blackpool’s best designed schools, Highfield Humanities College, has been appointed an honorary member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Eric Wright, founder of the Eric Wright Group which re-built the school in South Shore, is now one of only 200 chartered surveyors who hold the honorary RICS accolade.

Mr Wright’s reward is one of a number handed to him and his company as a result of work in Blackpool.

The company was also recognised in the Best Building Refurbishment category of the Blackpool Civic trust awards for revamping Bispham library.
