While the misery of flooding has been on everyone’s mind it’s been a quiet week up here on the hill in Headington. Here’s my weekly round-up of local news for 3 – 9 February.
A woman suffered serious injuries at about 10.30 on Monday after falling from a third-floor window at Oxford Brookes University’s Clive Booth Hall (off John Garne Way, Marston).
As the bad weather continued, a fallen tree closed one lane of the A40 near Headington roundabout on Thursday evening.
@JacobsandField‘s new venture @JacobsChopHouse has applied for a licence to open 7 days a week from 08:00 to 22:00 (extended to 01:00 on New Year’s Eve/Day). They describe the operation, set in the old Café Noir premises, as “a restaurant with recorded music” and have applied for a licence to sell alcohol on the premises from 11:00 to 23:00 seven days a week.
