Headington Headlines #327

Your weekly round-up of local news for 17 – 23 July.

Old Marston Parish Council @OldMarstonPC‘s store was broken into and everything was stolen.

A man’s body was found in a field off the Marston Ferry Road on Tuesday morning. The death is being treated by police as ‘unexplained but not suspicious’.

Police are warning of a ‘crime spree’ of burglaries and break-ins affecting Headington and Marston as well as other parts of Oxford. In one incident a CBE medal was stolen in a break-in at a house in Old Road (The Oxford Mail says ‘Old London Road’).

Headington residents are ‘the locals’ as far as the marketing pitch for @BartonPark_ (aka @Mosaics_Oxford, aka “Don’t mention Barton“) is concerned. The picture shows the previous incarnation of Jacobs Brasserie as Jacobs Chop House.

The Headington Neighbourhood Plan passed its final hurdle when it was approved by the City’s full council on Thursday.

The Vicky Arms has applied for a licence to serve drinks from an outside bar.
