comment Is Addenbrooke's site/Site a proper noun?
The house standard on Wikipedia is to use sentence casing in section titles; from MOS:HEAD: "The provisions in Article titles (above) generally apply to section headings as well (for example, headings are in sentence case, not title case).". The current content of the Wikipedia article is inconsistent, hence the question.

comment Are particular seasons proper nouns?
@Brett Reynolds: yes, for instance the Wikipedia manual of style states "As the seasons are reversed in the northern and southern hemispheres ..., neutral wording (in early 1990, in the second quarter of 2003, around September) is usually preferable to a "seasonal" reference (summer 1918, spring 1995). Even when the season reference is unambiguous (for instance when a particular location is clearly involved) a date or month may be preferable to a season name ...".

In 2003 the department was split into the Canada Revenue Agency and the Canada Border Services Agency with the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness taking responsibility for the latter agency.

Is the converse true? Never capitalised when not in a title?

comment Are particular seasons proper nouns?
I think this is clear from the other question, "Should the names of seasons be capitalized?". But what about a particular summer, say the one in 2012? Is it "The UEFA European Football Championship is held in Summer 2012" or "The UEFA European Football Championship is held in summer 2012"?
