Headington Headlines #192

Here’s my weekly round-up of local news for 1 -7 December.

Headington’s live Advent Calendar got off to a flying start this week. @TheOxfordMail carried this report.

A collision near the Headington Roundabout closed the Eastern bypass for a time on Wednesday morning. We seem to be getting at least one accident a week around the roadworks there.

@BartonPark_ has won the award for ‘Planning for Housing Growth‘ at the 2014 Planning Awards.

Continuing the tradition of Headington pubs winning CAMRA’s Oxford Pub of the Year competition, this year’s winner is @TheMasonsArmsHQ. Congratulations to @ChrisMeeson and @Innkeeper55.

The Headington Christmas tree was duly installed in its new purpose-dug hole on Friday.
