Headington Headlines #177

Here’s my weekly round-up of a very quiet week for local news 18 – 24 August.

A traffic accident involving a car and a motorbike on Wednesday evening closed Headley Way for a while. Stagecoach and Oxford Bus buses diverted through Northway.

Another carved wooden statue has recently appeared in the Narnia-themed playground in Bury Knowle Park. Picture c/o @headingtonnews, identification as Reepicheep c/o @Howard_S. But Howard also points out that since installation, Reepicheep has lost his tail *and* his sword. How humiliating for this most fearless of knightly warriors!

Active posts on the Headington & Marston e-democracy forum this week:

  • Excessively bright light at Tesco ATM
  • Cherwell drive slip road
  • Barton to Kidlington bus
I cover news from the OX3 postcode in Headington and out as far as Barton, Sandhills and Risinghurst (see map). To feed into next week’s summary you can comment on this article, or tweet either with the hashtag #ox3 or @mentioning @TonyOX3.
