Several residents have pointed out that the Council no longer sweeps pavements and alleys to remove fallen leaves. These surfaces can become slippery and thus dangerous, especially on sloping ground.
The Council will usually respond if a specific place is reported by residents. So if there is a pavement or alley or other public space which you think needs clearing of leaves please contact the Council on https://www.oxford.gov.uk/info/20097/report_it_online/176/report_litter or phone 01865 249811.

We hope to see you on Thursday.
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.
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.
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.
