Headington Headlines #274

Your weekly round-up of local news for 11 – 17 July.

The body of Sara McDonald of Woodstock, who was reported missing on Monday, was found in Shotover Country Park on Tuesday.

Oxford City FC managing director Colin Taylor was found dead at the club’s ground in Marsh Lane, Marston on Sunday (yesterday) morning. Police say the circumstances of his death are not thought to be suspicious.

None of the Co-op stores in Headington & Marston, or indeed in Oxford as a whole, are affected by the Co-op’s annonced sale of smaller stores to McColl’s Retail. The full list in postcode order is here.

It’s been another of those rare weeks without any new posts on the Headington & Marston e-democracy forum.
