Trick or treat?


In readiness for Halloween the Neighbourhood Watch Office has obtained a stock of “No trick or treat” notices which may be displayed at your home if you so wish.
If you would like a small supply of these notices for your neighbourhood they may be collected from the front counters of St. Aldates or Cowley Police stations.

  • Wed 29 July 18.00-20.00
  • Wed 26 August 12.00-14.00

If you live South of the London Road in the Brookside/Latimer Road/ Lime Walk/ Windmill Road/ New Headington areas back to Rock Edge and the Churchill Hospital, then your local police team is the Wood Farm, Headington South and Quarry team. Their drop in surgeries are as follows:
