Headington Headlines #89

Here’s my weekly round-up of local news for 3 – 9 December.

Headington woke up to its first snow of the winter on Wednesday morning. Twitter predictably went mad for a while.

@Stagecoach_Ox‘s new buses finally started service on the no. 10 route alongside some of the old ones. From the outside at least they are much quieter than the old ones.

The bells at St Nicholas the Wonderworker in Marston, a gift from Voronezh in Russia, have finally been hung. Planning permission to ring the bells was granted in February this year after objections from some local residents.

Quarry School and Maggie’s Oxford @maggiesoxford both held Christmas Fairs on Saturday.

The section of Pullen’s Lane nearest Headington Hill got a badly-needed resurfacing on Monday.
