Headington Headlines #78

Here’s my weekly round-up of local news for 10 – 16 September —

Two men arrested after an alleged rape in Bury Knowle Park on Tuesday night have been charged.

Headington’s specialist chocolate shop Coco Noir has a promotional video on Youtube.

Oxford Design (S side of London Road near Taylor’s estate agents) announced they will be moving to the Green Hangar, Stanton St John, on Monday 22 October.

Café Noir had a French Night on Friday – a six-course meal and music.

A traffic accident near the Shell station on London Road on Tuesday reportedly involving a car and a taxi caused buses to divert via Windmill Road, Old Road and Gipsy Lane for a short time. Fire engines also attended, apparently because it was close to the petrol station.

Five people were taken to hospital with neck and back injuries on Thurday evening after a two-car crash on the Eastern Bypass near Headington Quarry. The injuries were not believed to be life threatening.
