BT Infinity hi-speed broadband is available in Headington (at least, it is in my bit). You can check here.
@HeadingtonSch‘s new Head Teacher started her new job this week. Welcome to Headington, Caroline Jordan.

@TheMasonsArmsHQ beer festival was on over the weekend, and ran out of beer before lunch on Sunday.
A $75m student residential development will be named Headington Hall in honour of its major donor, OU alumnus Tim Headington. You didn’t know about this? You can stop panicking – that’s OU as in Oklahoma University <sighs of relief>.
