Recent Friends of Quarry Activities

Over the last month, Friends of Quarry have organised two community activities:

  • A Cheese and Wine evening took place on 24 February in the Village Hall. 42 people attended. The feedback was very positive. We will aim to organise further similar activities in the future – if you have any ideas or suggestions, or want to get involved, please contact us
  • The annual OxClean event took place on 4 March. 13 people spent 2 hours picking up litter around the Quarry as part of a larger, Oxford-wide, event. The feedback was that the Quarry was cleaner than in previous years, but even so, a reasonable amount of rubbish was collected. We will be organising this again on the first weekend of March 2018
