Headington Headlines #401

Your weekly round-up of local news for 7 – 13 January.

Congratulations to the Masons Arms @TheMasonsArmsHQ, winners of the Oxford CAMRA city pub of the year award for 2019.

An arrest warrant has been issued for the slightly notorious ‘Headington Door Knocker’ after he breached a community order by failing to turn up in court. The order was part of the suspended sentence he was given a few weeks ago.

What used to be the Oxford Food Centre on the London Road near Northfield Road and the Headington roundabout is to become a massage parlour. Planning nerds will rejoice in it being classified as ‘sui generis ‘.

It looks like the Royal British Legion Social Club on Edgecombe Road in Barton, which has been disused for the past four years, will be demolished.

Headington LibDems set up a Brexitometer in the shopping centre on Saturday. No surprises given the strong vote here for Remain, but no enthusiasm for a general election to resolve the issue either.
