Enhancement Awards - Created in 1994

This award is made for work on buildings, walls, trees etc. that in your opinion, and ultimately that of the Trustees, has enhanced the conservation area. To qualify, any proposal must be for work completed since the last AGM and visible from the street. Awards were not made for the years 1999 to 2002 inclusive, and 2007 to 2010.

2017 94 Old High Street

"A successful extension of an awkward living space into a pleasant home. The original stone/brick building fronts Old High Street and St Andrews Road at a central part of the conservation area.
The St Andrews end was messy, having been adapted from Mrs Bond's shop.

Any Acceptable conversion would have to be sympathetic to the neighboring buildings: this has been considered and deserves recognition.
The size of the extension; the choice of building materials; the attention to matching brick work and suitable windows all achieve a welcome outcome and enhancement of the conservation area

The work on St Andrew's Tower was funded by The Friends of St Andrew's Church (FOSAC) which was founded in 1991 to supplement  the funds allocated by the church for church fabric.  FOSAC does not contribute to the running expenses of the church and members are made up of those who appreciate the church building and would like to contribute towards its maintenance, whether or not they are church-goers.  Information about The Friends and a membership application form can be found in the church or obtained from the Secretary.  Jill Freston, 10 The Croft, Headington, Oxford.
