Your weekly round-up of local news for 1 – 8 January.

@OUHEstates have confirmed that the final reinstatement of the roads, including remaking the speed humps, will be done at the end of all the work in agreement with the County Highways Department.

In the wake of the withdrawal of the H2 local bus service last year Risinghurst & Sandhills Parish Council is asking whether people in that area would use a possible new bus service.

In what looks like a good move for both clubs, Oxford United @OUFCOfficial and Oxford City FC have signed a deal for OUFC to share City’s ground in Marston for training. The arrangement needs the blessing of the City Council.

Several pupils were sent home from Cheney School at the start of term for wearing ‘inappropriate uniform’ – trousers that were ‘too short’. Parents were upset that the children were sent home without supervision and without their parents being told.

@WindmillOxford school couldn’t open after the holidays on Wednesday as planned because the heating boiler had broken down. It was finally fixed on Friday and the school opens today (Monday).

A young man was threatening to jump off the Old Road bridge over the Eastern by-pass on Saturday. Police managed to talk him away and to safety. @HeadingtonNews was there.

You can recycle your natural Christmas trees at three Council sites in Headington – Bury Knowle Park, South Park and Margaret Road recreation ground.
