Here’s my weekly round-up of local news for 1 – 7 June.
As the draft @HeadingtonPlan moves into a six-week consultation period, the first of six drop-in sessions took place on Saturday. Each session focuses on one topic in the plan – Saturday’s was on Amenity & Green Spaces – but you can get information and discuss any aspect of the draft plan. The drop-in sessions are at The Hub, which is on the north side of the London Road east of the lights, from 10am to 4pm. There’s more on the Plan website.
A new hairdressers Kenny’s Hair Boutique @KennysHairBout has opened at 6 Cinnaminta Road.
Nascent cycle club @QuarryVelo is holding a ‘strategy meeting’ open to all on Tuesday this week (9 June), 8pm @MasonsArmsHQ.
Phone lines and internet were disrupted @WindmillOxford school on Tuesday when builders working on the school extension damaged a cable.
The @TheWhiteHartH is advertising for a chef to join their team. They assure me that the gravy is not threatened. They are also looking for bar staff – just take your CV in and talk to them.
Local efforts to preserve the Stansfeld Outdoor Centre as a benefit for the community took another step with a meeting on Thursday to form a Friends of Stansfeld Group.
Another meeting to try to keep a community asset was held on Friday – this time in support of the Ampleforth Arms in Risinghurst. The Ampleforth is noted for being C S Lewis’s local when he lived at The Kilns in Lewis Close.
