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.
Phone lines and internet were disrupted @WindmillOxford school on Tuesday when builders working on the school extension damaged a cable.
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.
