A community centre in Headington has launched this year's Oxford Preservation Trust Awards.

The Bullingdon Community Centre took home a plaque at last year's awards, which highlight the finest in new, sustainable design, and historic conservation.

The centre re-opened in December 2022 after undergoing a £1.5 million revamp.

Richard Bryant, who helps run the centre, described how he and others worked to create the building: "This was a true partnership between the community, the city council, architects Jessop & Cook and Oxford Direct Services.

"It’s a model for how these things should be done."

20 different groups and organisations utilise the centre regularly.

Services available include the Citizen’s Advice Bureau, the Headington Repair Shop, free NHS Health Checks, and a monthly community lunch.

Anna Eavis, Oxford Preservation Trust's newly appointed CEO, said: "The Bullingdon Community Centre is particularly inspiring because the community was at the heart of its creation and because it’s such a well-loved local amenity.

"The Oxford Preservation Trust Awards enables us to showcase the high standard of new design and conservation across Oxford and to recognise those projects which really make a positive contribution to the lives people of the city."

This year will mark the 47th Oxford Preservation Trust Awards celebration.

Entries are now open and more information can be found on the Oxford Preservation Trust website,
