OPT and The Oxford Times, '40 in 40'
The 40 in 40 Competition has been running in The Oxford Times and Oxford Mail over the past five weeks with 8 projects displayed each week all taken from award winning projects over the past 40 years ranging from the restoration of lanterns and railings in Park Town in 1977 to the Blavatnik School of Government in 2016.
The public voted in their droves and the winning project won with a staggering 25% of the vote.
Therefore, a huge congratulations to the project team of the Oxford Castle who won an award in 2007 and who the public voted for as their 40 in 40 winner.
We were also delighted to welcome Alison Bird who voted for the Oxford Castle and won two tickets to the OPT Awards evening. She said that she 'voted for the Oxford Castle because it transformed the area and provides lasting enjoyment and interest for everyone.'
Congratulations to all winners and all those involved. The Awards would not be possible without the support of our sponsors, Freeths Solicitors, Critchleys Accountants and Carter Jonas incorporating Kemp & Kemp.
