Bulb Planting – Delayed to 3 November

We are not having very much luck with the weather for our bulb planting. The forecast for tomorrow looks bad, so we have made the decision to delay for a day. So, we’ll be doing the planting at 1000 tomorrow, 3 November.

We hope that the weather will hold up and that you are able to join us.


Concerns about the Beechers Development

There  has been a huge local reaction to the construction of the block of apartments on the Beecher Acoustics site at 1 Quarry High Street, with disbelief that this has been allowed in the Conservation Area. The building being constructed appears significantly different from what was approved back in 2006.

Friends of Quarry logged an enforcement enquiry with Oxford City Planning on 30 Sept detailing the apparent differences together with a number of questions relating to the approval process.

We are waiting for a response from Enforcement and will continue to try and discover how this development was allowed and whether its impact on the area can be mitigated.


Bulb Planting – Postponed to 2 November

In view of the weather forecast for tomorrow, we have postponed the planned bulb planting to Saturday 2 November at 1000.

We hope that you’ll be able to join us next weekend.
