Saturday March 6th

Oxford Preservation Trust (OPT)

Debbie Dance, director of OPT, explained how the trust's annual awards will include a new comunity award. Debbie told us: "The idea of a new award is a recognition of the way in which individual groups and neighbourhoods can make a difference. A place is about its people and this is nowhere more true than Oxford."

Projects nominated must be accessible to the public or seen from a public place.
