Headington Headlines #179

Here’s my weekly round-up of local news for 1 – 6 September.

Local magazine Headington Monthly is now available online.

A new local cycling account appeared on twitter – @QuarryVelo.

Headington was hit by another outbreak of #oxpong on Wednesday evening, with the bad smell persisting into Thursday.

A four-vehicle collision blocked Cherwell Drive for a while late on Tuesday afternoon. Six people were injured, none of them seriously.

Da Root in Windmill Road has changed its name to Osheey!!! (via @headingtonnews).

The Julia Durbin Day Nursery in Old Road, which offers childcare to staff at Oxford Brookes Campus and the Churchill Hospital, has been rated outstanding after an inspection in August just 10 months after an earlier audit stated it required improvement.

It was Risinghurst’s community fun day on Saturday.

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

  • 1812 Fireworks
  • Northway Town Green application and Barton Park
  • London road from Hamburger roundabout to headington
  • Risinghurst community fun day – tomorrow from 11am-4pm
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.

  1. A quick note to let you know about the Quarry Craft Club, which meets at 7.30pm on Monday evenings during term time at Headington Quarry School.

    Founded and hosted by Kelly Welch, who works at Quarry School, the club welcomes sewers, knitters and other makers and doers whatever their level of experience or expertise, offering tea, conversation and the occasional cake to anyone needing some advice, help or even just a bit more space to get going with their own projects. Regular attendees range from highly experienced seamstresses to complete novices (your correspondent among the latter) so everyone can be confident of a warm welcome. A contribution of £2 per session is requested to cover refreshments and proceedings usually draw to a close around 9.30pm.

    Anyone who might be interested in coming along can email Kelly at kellyru@aol.com who will be pleased to offer further details. We'll also be letting people know about forthcoming club meetings via Twitter on @kellyrukellyru and @jonny_ives

    Hope this is of interest and many thanks for your excellent work on behalf of Headingtonians.

    Kind regards
