Lonely at Christmas

The Oxford Mail are running a great campaign this Christmas to support Age UK and help older people across the county feel less lonely and isolated. Just a little time on the phone once a week can make a world of difference, or help raise much needed funds.

Give something free to an older person this Christmas

The Community Information Network provides information about local activities and support services - it’s completely free and operates across the county through information drop-ins, over the phone or home visits. Tell someone about the network today as your invaluable Christmas gift to them – it could change their life.

Norwegian Reindeer (and bin collections)


Did you know that every Christmas in Oxfordshire we generate 1000 tonnes of extra waste? That’s equivalent to the weight of 6250 Norwegian reindeer! But the good news is that we can recycle 80% of it.
 
Your local District Council is responsible for waste and recycling bins, but collection times may still be different after the holidays. Use the links to check your next collection day.

Dreaming of a white Christmas?


You might have to keep dreaming unfortunately. A wet Christmas still scans, but isn’t so much fun. Either way, both mean keeping an eye on the driving conditions. The RAC have some excellent tips.
