Headington Headlines #335

Your weekly round-up of local news for 11 – 17 September.

@Cheney_School joined twitter.

Both Anneliese Dodds (Lab, Oxford East) and Layla Moran (LibDem, Oxford West & Abingdon) voted against the second reading of the EU Withdrawal Bill on Monday night.

The largest piece of public art in Headington, “Origin” by Julian Wilde, has been shortlisted for an award for “excellence in public sculpture”. It is installed on the Old Road Campus.

A flyer from a local artist and writer, Michael Plockley, came through my letterbox advertising his portrait service. His website pockley.blogspot.co.uk/ shows he also paints landscapes.

Despite local concerns, @Oxford_Brookes arrivals weekend at Beech House seemed to go fairly smoothly. @Unite_Student had marshals on duty to help direct the parking.
