Headington Headlines #235

Here’s my weekly round-up of local news for 5 – 11 October.

@Oxford_Framing joined twitter.

@Oxford_Brookes‘ public art project “The Rain Pavilion” was finally on full view last weekend, just in time for the rain on Monnday.

Wood Farm Health Centre in Leiden Road reopened as Wood Farm Healthy Living Centre after a complete refurbishment, although the change of branding doesn’t seem to have reached its website yet.

The full planning application for student accommodation on the corner of Latimer Road is now on the City Council’s website (ref 15/00858/FUL).

Full marks to Leaders letting agency @LeadersOxford who took advantage of the total breakdown of civil society caused by bagmageddon by giving away reusable shopping bags carrying their logo.

The Diocese of Oxford wishes to recruit a Vicar for St. Mary’s in Barton. The church has entered into a partnership with St Aldate’s in the city centre which it is hoped will benefit both churches.

My favourite Headington-related tweet of the week:

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