Barry Carter, who has lived in the Quarry for many years, will be leading a group through Quarry talking about Continuity and Change on July 13th. The walk will start at Quarry School Place at 2pm and will finish with tea at The White House. A place on the walk can be booked by phoning Jenifer Carpenter on 762416. The number of places is limited so early booking is advisable.
There will be a meeting to discuss Quarry’s special features on Thursday 16th May at 7.30pm in the Village Hall, Quarry Road. We will be joined at the meeting by Robert Lloyd-Sweet, Conservation Officer for Oxford City Council, who will talk about the special features, how they’re currently protected and what it means to live in a conservation area. This will be followed by an opportunity to discuss whether what else can be done to protect the area and whether residents would accept further restrictions on making changes to their properties. The meeting will be followed by a wine reception which we do hope you’ll be able to stay for.
You may be aware that the governing body of Holy Trinity is considering changes to the interior and exterior of the church. Their ideas are described in the Public statement and Sketch of ideas.
