The Mayor of Calderdale was in attendance as Halifax Civic Trust crowned their Civic Trust award winner.

Nader Fekri watched on and MP Linda Riordan was the guest speaker at the Trust’s Annual General Meeting, which saw the Boulevard Medical Practice’s health centre win the top prize.

The Centre, which is housed in the refurbished Savile Hall mansion, was built in around 1830 and which has an extension on the back, was described by Halifax Civic Trust Awards Co-ordinator David Hanson as having “a dynamic and vibrant design.”

The rescue of the semi-derelict Moor Fall Farm, at Ploughcroft Lane in Boothtown, Calderdale College’s new Inspire centre and St Jude’s Church in Savile Park were all highly commended by the Trust.
