HEADINGTON WARD FOCUS MEETING
Tuesday, 29 January 2019
Headington Baptist Church, 78 Old High St, Oxford OX3 9HW
Do come along, we’d love to see you! All welcome. Admission free.
Your opportunity to get an update on local news from your councillors
Following noise complaints last year, one resident has been informed by the City Council:
With regards to monitoring points, we aim to take more measurementsfrom locations that appeared to be particularly affected by low frequency noise from the festival last year which included the Headington area. In terms of the equipment, if I or one of my colleagues could visit you on the Friday evening prior to the start of the festival to install the equipment that would be much appreciated. It will take no more than 15mins or so at the most to set it up and it does not require any interaction at all during the festival as it will be pre-set to log the data we require. We would aim to pick the equipment up on Sunday evening if that is convenient?
Please let us know if you experienced a volume of noise you considered unacceptably high last year and would like monitoring equipment too, and we shall contact the appropriate officer.
Find out more about volunteering at Museum of Oxford
The team behind the Museum of Oxford are hosting two free information sessions for members for the public to learn how they can get involved in volunteering.
The sessions, taking place on Monday 5 February, and Tuesday 6 February invites those interested in volunteering to attend two free information talks:
- Find out more about volunteering: Monday 5 February, 10.30am-12.30pm, at the Heritage Learning Centre
- Young Innovators open meeting: Tuesday 6 February, 6.00pm-7.30pm, at the Old Museum
The sessions will explore how the public can get involved in volunteering and will feature talks from staff and volunteers, as well as a tour and a chance to ask questions.
The Young Innovators open meeting invites 16-25 year olds who are interested in using their skills to assist in the planning projects and events at the Museum of Oxford. Previously the group have planned live music nights, Halloween evenings, and a family-friendly event examining archaeological finds during the redevelopment of the Westgate shopping centre.
Earlier this month Museum of Oxford introduced Volunteer Makers, a flexible volunteering scheme introducing a new way to volunteer digitally.
In September 2017, the Museum of Oxford as a part of the City Council’s Community Services team received the Investing in Volunteers Quality Standard accreditation. The accreditation recognises the team as having best practice of recruiting, training and supporting volunteers.
