Missed a Spot: Sprucing Up the Road for Queen’s Jubilee

Victoria Road residents pitched in to repaint one of the road sings before the Queen’s Jubilee and the neighborhood’s Seven Roads Party. Many thanks to Jonathan for the paint job, and to Sally for supervising. We are sure that this is only one of many indirect benefits of the celebrations.

The Exuberant Trust – Join Their Events, Concerts, …

The Exuberant Trust, Oxfordshire’s’s very own charity supporting local young people to realise their creative potential in the arts, is embarking on a summer season of fundraising concerts – see attached for full details of events at The Limes in Standlake, and the Jacqueline du Pre Music Building at St Hilda’s College.  Last year’s Ballet in Small Spaces programme and tour were supported by the Trust through grants to talented musicians and designer Ellen Stewart, and some of the excellent musicians reconvene this year as the Exuberant Quartet for two concerts.  In these difficult times your support for young people in the arts is especially welcome – and what nicer way to spend a late Sunday afternoon?  So please join one of these events.
