AN EMPTY house

for sale.
EMPTY: Red Cottage
The Red Cottage in South
Oxford has stood eerily
empty in Old Abingdon
Road for 11 years, its walls
strangled by thick ivy and
wooden boards in place of
windows and doors.
The former family home
has become a haunting reminder of an arson attack

The 20-year-old looked set to join

Rovers, because there was a ?high

But the midfielder came on as a
second-half substitute in the 2-1 loss.
?Unless something comes in we feel

SOLD: The house bookseller Adrian
Greenwood was murdered in
A HOUSE owned by an Oxford
bookseller who was brutally stabbed to
death has ?nally been sold for almost
three quarters of a million pounds.
The If?ey Road property, in which rare
book collector Adrian Greenwood was
murdered by Michael Danaher in April
2016, was put on the market in August
last year.
The Oxford Mail can now reveal the
house was sold in December for
�0,000 ? with the buyer paying
�000 more than the guide price.
Estate agent Penny and Sinclair had
urged potential buyers to raise any
concerns before viewing the property to
avoid a ?wasted journey?.
A police investigation found Danaher
had stabbed Greenwood multiple times
in the hallway of his house before he
stole a �,000 ?rst-edition copy of
Wind in the Willows.
During Danaher?s trial jurors heard
how the killer had travelled to the city
?ve times to plot his crime, took a sel?e
moments afterwards and had created a
celebrity hit list, which included Kate
Moss and Jeffrey Archer.
In July last year, Channel 4 aired a
one-hour documentary revealing how
Thames Valley Police?s Major Crime
Unit brought Danaher, who is currently
service a 34-year prison sentence, to
justice.
According to property website Zoopla,
the four-bedroom house has risen in
value by a further �,000 since the
purchase and has a rental value of
�200 per month.

?It was my grandparents? house
for 60 years.
?We have been working hard behind the scenes to get planning
permission and are hoping to give
it a new lease of life.?
The asking price has not been
publicised online or on the ?for
sale? sign, and the property?s value
is not logged on public Land Registry documents.
According to property website
Zoopla, homes sharing the cottage?s postcode sold for an average
of �4,388 in the past 12 months.
The house, opposite GO Outdoors, had been vacated before the
fatal blaze and inhabited by squatters.
Homeless Cox had been sleeping
there with girlfriend Mrs Sanchez,
a mother-of-eight, and deliberately
started the fire on January 2 when
Mr Blake turned up and forced
him out.
Cox, then aged 63, was sentenced
to life the following year, and told
he must serve a minimum of 20
years.
Oxford Crown Court heard he
torched the stairway in a drunken
jealous rage while Mrs Sanchez,
36, and father-of-one Mr Blake, 51,
were sleeping.
The house has since been devoid
of life, its charred brickwork and
overgrown garden visible from the
busy road.
Retired city councillor Bob Price,
whose former Hinksey Park ward
encompasses the house, described
it as a ?prominent? site.
Mr Price, who stepped down as a
councillor at last week?s election,
said: ?It?s part of the entry into
the city, and it?s very close to Redbridge park-and-ride.
?It?s important to get a design
that complements both the front,
which looks on to the road and welcomes people into Oxford, and the
back, on to the park-and-ride.
?It has got potential to be quite
a significant development and not
just a replication of the current
rather small cottage.
?It?s very important to bring
back into use every bit of land for
housing as possible.?
Mr Price lives just off Abingdon
Road and said the fatal fire was a
?shock? to the community.
He added: ?I remember [seeing the house] when I first drove
through Oxford in 1970. I remem-

and our front page reporting on the conviction of James Cox
ber it well. It was always a bit
run-down but it was a functioning
house and had a very nice garden
around it. It was a pleasant way of
getting into Oxford.?
Faith Phipps, who has lived in
Abingdon Road for more than 20
years, said it would be a ?pity? to
see the place demolished.
She said: ?It would be an awful shame but there would be an
enormous amount of work to do
to restore it. I would prefer it to
be restored, but it wouldn?t be economically viable and can see that
it would be sensible to do something useful with the land, as we
have a housing shortage.
?I feel very strongly about houses being left empty. It would be
good to see it used for something
productive.?
Since the fire, the building?s most
immediate neighbour has changed
from Motor World car dealer to a
UK Bathroom Warehouse showroom, to the Travelodge hotel that
stands there today.
Oxford City Council passed the
Bailey brothers? plans to replace
the cottage with three two-bedroom flats with car parking in
2015.
The design submitted was a modern cube-shaped building, with a
white exterior mixed with wooden
cladding.
Documents submitted to the
council defended the loss of the
the building, stating: ?It is more
practical and economically viable
to demolish the property and construct new purpose-built flats in
its place.?
Council officers agreed, stating
in their report: ?The cottage is not
large enough for modern-day living.
?The modern design with its simple form and limited use of materials will not look out of place when
viewed within the street scene.
?The proposal makes an effective
and efficient use of the land.?
The council approved the plan in
August 2015 subject to eight conditions, including that building
work starts within three years.

SHOWTIME: Thousands ?ock to see historic and modern aircraft soar over Abingdon Lucky escape after
car hits lamppost
Eyes to the sunny skies for
19th air and country show

Crash closes A420
CLEAR blue skies welcomed back the 19th
annual Abingdon Air
and Country Show yesterday.
It was eyes up to the skies
from behind the sunglasses
and sun shades for thousands
of families who flocked to the
annual show at former RAF
Abingdon airfeld, Dalton
Barracks.
Historic aircraft took flight
to swoop and soar above the
crowds, whizzing through
the clear blue skies of Oxfordshire.
Abingdon
airfield
was
bursting with aircraft of all
shapes and sizes dating back
to the First and Second World
War, from miniature models
to wartime classics.
This year?s event also paid
tribute to the RAF in its centenary year with a static lineup of vintage aircraft including the RAF C-130 Hercules,
a Spitfire Mk.26 and Tiger
Moth.
More than 50 aircraft did
take to the skies including
the BBMF Hurricane, Spitfire and Lancaster Flypast,
the Great War Display Team
and Jump4Heroes Parachute
Team.
Down on the ground, the
flying displays were rivalled
by yet more aircraft, classic
car and motorbike exhibitions, plus a host of family
fun.
The Fletcher family, from
near Thame, went along to
the air show as first timers.
Dad-of-two Clive Fletcher
said: ?We think the show is
great and has something for
everyone.
?It is the first time we have
been and thought we would
come along as something
different for the family to do
and it has been fun.
?We were looking forward

A CHILD and a driver were lucky not to
suffer serious injuries after the car they were
in hit a lamppost.
The accident happened near Langford
Village, Bicester, at about 2pm on Saturday.
Fire?ghters from Bicester and Buckingham
attended the scene following the crash and
said their seatbelts had saved them.
On its Facebook page, the Oxfordshire Fire
and Rescue Service said: ?Fortunately both
the occupants, including a small child, were
correctly wearing seatbelts and had a
properly-sized child seat which protected
them from any signi?cant injuries, including
when the airbags activated as part of the
collision.?
DRIVERS faced delays after a serious crash
closed the A420 yesterday.
The collision took place at about 4.30pm
and is believed to have involved two cars.
Thames Valley Police warned drivers to
avoid the scene of the accident between the
A415 Kingston Bagpuize and A338 Tubney
roundabouts.
The road was closed off by police in both
directions with drivers diverted through
Frilford.
The diversion meant traf?c was backed up
through the area and delays of about 15
minutes were reported.

Elsewhere local performers, community groups and
charities pitched up stalls.
In the music tent there were
performances by Abingdon

cert Band and the Radio Days
Big Band from Abingdon.
Providing more music were
the Oxford Caledonian Pipes
and Drums and Abingdon
Sea Cadets Band. Abingdon
Traditional Morris dancers
provided more traditional
entertainment.
Abingdon?s so-called Mayor
of Ock Street, Harry Knight,
was among the dancers. He
said: ?Events like this are
great for us to give people
the chance to see what we do.
The Abingdon Air Show is
a great colourful place to do
that ? especially on a day like
today.
?It is such a wonderful show
and one of the main events
for Abingdon. It brings together all the reenactment
and military organisations
all to one lovely place.?
The show fundraises for
charity each year with money put towards Thames Valley Air Ambulance.

New measures
to deter drug
dealing across
city launched
MEASURES to deter drug dealing and
drug use in Oxford have been
implemented by a new taskforce.
Friars Wharf has been lit up at night,
while new CCTV has been installed at
Oxford Ice Rink to monitor activity in the
field behind it.
Foliage has also been cut back at known
drug hotspots, such as Wytham Street,
near Donnington Bridge.
Funded by Thames Valley Police and
Oxford City Council, it will include a new
problem-solving member of staff who will
have �,000 to spend on disrupting drug
dealing, installing new CCTV cameras,
improving street lighting in some areas or
installing other security.
The Oxford Community Safety
Partnership funds the problem-solving
post and other resources, totalling
�,000.
The city council has spent �,000 to
recruit two new Police Support
Community Officers (PCSOs).
All the taskforce?s work will be based at
St Aldate?s Police Station. Along with the
city council?s money, Thames Valley
Police has funded a new police officer to
tackle the problems.
Tom Hayes, Oxford City Council?s
executive board member for community
safety, was re-elected in his St Clement?s
ward on Thursday.
He said: ?In the election just passed, I
saw first-hand people?s increasing
concerns about drug dealing and use in
their communities.
?The election has shown why it?s
important for Oxford City Council to fund
some policing in the city.
?This financial commitment is one way
for the council to step up.?

Westgate drawing more visitors to city
THE reopening of the Westgate
Centre is a major reason why nearly
1.2 million more people have visited
Oxford city centre in 2018, the city
council said.
The council?s footfall ?gures show
that about 8.878m people walked
through the city centre from January
until the end of March, compared to
7.659m during the same period last
year.
The busiest day of the ?rst three
months this year was February 24,
which saw 142,817 people visit
Oxford.
The busiest week was February 11
to February 17. The council said
791,691 visitors came to the city then.
The council said the improved
shopping offer was a signi?cant
reason for the increased ?gures.
It said the 125-store centre has
greatly enhanced the shopping
experience in the city, boosted the
local economy and created 3,400
retail jobs.
The council monitors footfall in the
city centre in Cornmarket, Queen
Street and George Street.
Susan Brown, Leader of Oxford City
Council, said: ?The rise in footfall
shows the city centre continues to be
a thriving retail and leisure
destination. The new Westgate has
made a real difference to people?s
experience of our city centre and
their desire to visit it.
?We work with retailers and
landlords to ensure this continues to
be a shared success for retailers.?
Laurie-Jane Taylor, City Centre
Manager, said: ?We are working
closely with landlords in the city
centre as they work to ?ll empty units
or redevelop their properties to
improve their condition and adjust
them to new uses.
?The council is also carrying out
regeneration and improvement work
on its properties, which will contribute
to the enhanced look, feel and
vibrancy of the city centre.?

?We have now commissioned architects to develop detailed engineering design work.

That was the ?nding of a special panel. No

The festival was the brainchild of the church
warden of St Mary?s, James Mills ? currently the

There are currently around

they are dangerous for visually impaired people.

Railway tree
felling petition
reaches 50,000
RESIDENTS who have suffered at the
hands of Network Rail?s tree felling have
been urged to sign a national petition
against plans to chop down millions more.
Last week it emerged the rail firm had
drawn up a map of 10 million trees
nationwide that could be cut down.
People living in North Oxford and
Wolvercote said they were the first to have
been hit by the ?aggressive policy? when
thousands of trees were lost to make way
for the new Oxford to Oxford Parkway link
in 2016.
Keith Dancey, who lives just yards from
the track in Wolvercote, urged Oxford
residents to sign the petition, which
already has more than 50,000 signatures.
He said: ?We know what this is like ? we
suffered first.
?It was an ecological disaster. It used to
be a lovely railway corridor with lots of
wildlife. We had roe deer, muntjacs,
badgers, foxes, toads and plenty of
different species of birds.
?We were assured that only vegetation
up to six metres from the line would be
cleared, and we accepted that.
?But instead they removed every tree,
shrub, and blade of grass and even tried
to fell trees in people?s gardens.?
Network Rail said it planted more trees
than it felled along the new Oxford to
London Marylebone route and that it took
its ecological responsibilities ?very
seriously?.
The petition, started by Bournemouth
man Ray Walton after he saw dozens of
trees chopped down near his house, can

�3m science
centre to be built
A NEW �3m science centre researching
cutting-edge technologies for life sciences
is set to be based near Didcot, following
the completion of a major deal.
The Rosalind Franklin Institute, a
national collaboration between
institutions, will be based on the Harwell
Campus.
Ten universities together with the
Science and Technology Facilities Council
(STFC) last week formally committed to a
partnership to work together at the
institute.
Academic lead for the institute, Prof
Andrew Livingston said: ?We are extremely
pleased to have reached this important
milestone.
?A huge amount of work has been
carried out in the background alongside
the formal legal agreement, working with
industry partners and with our academic
colleagues to ensure that the Rosalind
Franklin Institute will produce the right
technologies to solve challenges in life
science which are too complex for one
organisation to tackle alone.?
The institute will have its main hub at
Harwell, which will house much of the core
equipment.
The centre will provide space for 150
researchers
The multi-million pound facility is
scheduled to open in 2020 with
construction starting in the autumn.
OFSTED: Oxford Active is hit by ?inadequate? report for ?rst time in its 17-year history
Holiday camp organisers say
worst rating is ?unjusti?able?
Sophie
Grubb
sgrubb@nqo.com
LEADERS of a long-running school holiday club say
they feel unjustifiably criticised by their first ever ?inadequate? Ofsted report.
Oxford Active, which runs several school holiday and after-school
groups in Oxfordshire and beyond,
was shocked after one of its activity camps was handed the regulator?s worst rating.
The report was for Active Camps
at Oxford High School, which is
based at the Summertown school
but runs completely separately.
An inspector said children?s safety was compromised by vetting
procedures and policy for administering medicine.
But the company has labelled the
report misleading and plans to appeal to Ofsted.
Peter Parry, operations director
at Woodstock-based Oxford Active,
said it was the company?s first inadequate rating in its 17-year history.
He said: ?We are extremely disappointed.
?It is our belief that the inspection report contains misleading
language and does not accurately
describe the quality of care delivered on site or the systems in
place.
?As an organisation with 17
years? experience in the industry,
we have never before felt so unjustifiably criticised by an inspection.?
The popular club was attended
by about 120 children on inspection day, which took place in the
Easter break.
ACTIVITIES: Children having energetic fun at an Oxford Active group
Ofsted?s report rated the club
?good? for quality of teaching,
learning and assessment, but ?inadequate? for effectiveness of leadership and management, and personal development, behaviour and
welfare of children.
It was rated ?inadequate? overall
? a fall from its previous rating of
?good?, which was awarded in 2014.
The inspector?s report, published
last week, stated: ?Weaknesses
in safeguarding practice compromise children?s welfare.
?On the day of inspection, risk
assessment for children with allergies was ineffective. Staff left
children unsupervised, with some
children eating foods that posed a
risk to their friends.?
It also raised concerns about
staff safety checks, adding: ?The
provider is not able to demonstrate they have completed additional suitability checks on some
staff, who have recently returned
to the country after an extended
period abroad.
?Staff who had not been subject
to robust checks were left with
children in a room on their own
for over an hour.
?However, the provider does ensure that they obtain proof of DBS
checks.?
Mr Parry said concerns raised
only related to one staff member.
Much of the report was complimentary, describing staff as skilful
and sensitive.
Mr Parry added: ?Oxford Active
is committed to safeguarding and
considers the safety and security
of the children we care for to be
our number one priority, an ethos
which is effectively communicated
to and upheld by all of our staff.
?We look forward to Ofsted?s return, to prove the dedication of
our organisation and each of our
staff to providing high-quality, affordable childcare to the local community.?
Oxford Active asked the local authority safeguarding team to audit
its staff records, and said the response was positive.
It encouraged parents to call
01865 594325 to discuss any concerns.
Closing hospital?s emergency services was ?never viable?
THE chief executive of Oxford?s
acute health services has said
downgrading emergency services
at the Horton General Hospital in
Banbury was ?never a viable
option?.
Oxfordshire Clinical
Commissioning Group (CCG) had
been due to discuss the
possibility of a downgrade or
even a permanent closure of the
emergency service department
as part of the second phase of a
health services restructure ?
known as the transformation
plan.
However, following a
Government review into certain
aspects of the first phase of the
transformation plan, the CCG
announced in March that
emergency services at the
Banbury hospital were no longer
under threat.
In a report to the Oxford
University Hospitals Trust board,
chief executive Dr Bruno Holthof
said the trust, which runs the
hospital, had believed there was
a demonstrable need to actually
enhance the provision of urgent
care in north Oxfordshire, rather
than downgrade it.
He added: ?Downgrading the
department to an Urgent Care
Centre or shutting the
department completely were
never viable options.?
The report will be presented at
the next OUH Trust Board
meeting on Wednesday.
The meeting will be in the
Cancer Centre, at the Churchill
Hospital in Oxford, from 10am.
The CCG has gone back to the
drawing board with the heavily
criticised transformation plan
with plans to meet with health
groups across the county to
establish which services are
needed. The plan led to more
than 100 bed closures and the
downgrading of maternity
services at the Horton.

BITTEN STREET: Traders return to Oxford?s Castle Quarter for a celebration of snacks Resurfacing works
close A34 overnight
Diners get their teeth into a
monthly street food market
Naomi

FRESH cakes, Mexican
snacks and locallysmoked meats pulled in
the crowds at a festival
of street food.
The Bitten Street Food market took over Oxford?s Castle Quarter on Saturday, returning to its home for the
first time in more than six
months. And diners descended in their droves ? attracted
by the prospect of quality
eats and glorious sunshine.
Visitors were able to get
their teeth into all kinds of
street food from local traders, and shop for produce and
crafts created by Oxfordshire
artists and makers.
Becca Chaplin, who set up
the market with business
partner Jacqui Thorndyke,
said: ?It is amazing to be
back and especially with
such good weather for it.
?We always have had a
great street food offering,
plus the bar and music, but
now we?ve added the local
produce and craft stalls.
?We take up almost the entire back of the castle site,
and now that we?ve got the
space we hope to be able to
expand the craft and produce
side of the market even more
in the coming months.
?Obviously there is a huge
amount of stress that goes
into it, but when you see it as
busy las it has been, you realise it is pretty amazing.?
The business duo got stuck
in running the bar for the
afternoon, talking to their
regulars and helping out the
local traders for the market
which will become a monthly
Saturday event.
The foodies booked in for
the weekend?s market included Oxford?s Happy Cakes;
Mexican food sellers Taco
Bandits, who are set to open
a restaurant in Oxford?s
RESURFACING works continue on the A34
this week and will see the closure of the
southbound carriageway overnight.
Highways England continues its
improvement works on the dual carriageway
and will turn its attention to resurfacing the
section between Junction 9 of the M40 to the
A44 Peartree Interchange.
The overnight closure will start at 9pm and
reopen at 6am on weekdays only.
The works are expected to continue until
Thursday, May 24.
A diversion will be in place and nonmotorway traf?c is advised to use the A44
and A4095 to Bicester and motorway traf?c
to use the A44 and A40 to rejoin the M40.

Oliver Lee, who runs
Taco Bandits with business

?These markets are good for
local traders like us to promote what we?ve got coming up next, as well as being
great fun. ?
Oxford traders welcomed
the expanded monthly market. Joy Hetherington of Oxford Aromatics in the Covered Market said: ?Anything
that helps local traders and
independents in the city is
welcome.?
Gillian Senior of The Hat
Box agreed and added: ?Anything that happens in Oxford
and helps promote Oxford is
a good thing.?
Janos Nagy-Radnoh of

it could be good for all of us.?
Eminent ex-councillors to be recognised
FORMER council leader Bob Price,
current Lord Mayor Jean Fooks and
long-serving city councillor Gill Sanders
are expected to get a new award from
the authority.
Last month the Oxford Mail reported
how the city council?s party leaders had
agreed that honorary aldermen and
honorary alderwomen titles should be
awarded to former councillors who had
given outstanding service.
In council papers, to be discussed later
this month, it is revealed that Mr Price,
Mrs Fooks and Mrs Sanders are the first
three people who will be recognised in
this way.
Mr Price stepped down as a Hinksey
Park councillor last Thursday, having
served on the authority as a Labour
member since 1983. He had been its
leader for 10 years.
Mrs Fooks, a Lib Dem, had been a
councillor for Summertown since 1992
but did not stand for re-election this
month. She plans to move away from
Oxford to spend more time with family.
Mrs Sanders is also no longer a city
councillor, having stepped down from
her Littlemore seat ahead of the May 3
election, though she will continue as a
Labour county councillor for Rose Hill
and Littlemore until at least 2021.
Mrs Fooks? successor as Lord Mayor,
Labour councillor Colin Cook, will be
officially appointed at the city council?s
annual meeting on May 15.
At that, councillors will be asked to
agree to another meeting being
arranged for the three former members
to be given their awards. It had agreed
the award system should be set up at a
meeting on April 23.

DETERMINED new leadership has driven
improvements an Oxford secondary school.

It was the school?s first Ofsted under the
leadership of headteacher Rupert Moreton.
The head, who joined in September, said: ?The
children and young adults are a credit to the
school and cannot be praised highly enough.
?I would like to thank our staff, parents,
governors and students for all the support I
have received in such a short period of time.?
Addressing Mr Moreton, Ofsted?s report said:
?You and your new leadership team have
revitalised your staff.
?Your drive and determination to improve the

A TEAM used to sharpening talents of Oxford
United players were ?honoured? to teach skills to
pupils at a special school.
Football coaches from the U?s

Blackbird Leys.
The coaches led a special training session at nearby The Oxford Academy on Wednesday,
designed and adapted to suit
able-bodied children as well as
those in wheelchairs or with limited mobility.
Oxford United?s head of operations Chris Lowes, who took part
in the session, heaped praise on
the children who joined in.
He said: ?We were very honoured to have been able to go
into Mabel Prichard School and
deliver a session for these amazing students.
?They are an absolute credit to

THE UK has pledged an additional �m
of humanitarian support for the Rohingya
people in Bangladesh amid the looming
cyclone and monsoon season.
The rainy season could wash away fragile

fatal diseases to spread more rapidly in the

Burmese border, of?cials warned.
International Development Secretary Penny
Mordaunt described the scale of the crisis as

The explosion happened inside the Yaqoubi

was being used as a voter registration centre,
causing casualties among civilians gathering

No-one immediately claimed responsibility
for the attack, but both the Taliban and a local

Staff delivering Universal Credit
rollout want it brought to a halt
MORE than two-thirds of
front line staff working on
Universal Credit believe its
roll-out should be paused, a
new survey suggests.
Nearly nine in 10 staff have not
received the promised training on
mental health conditions, while
there are also concerns about
staff shortages, according to findings from Channel 4?s Dispatches.
The Department for Work and
Pensions said it strongly disputed
the claims from the ?extremely
small, self-selected and flawed survey?.
Some 550 Public and Commercial Services Union members
who work on Universal Credit for
the DWP were polled for the programme.
Dispatches also uncovered cases
of a disabled mother waiting five
months to receive her full benefit entitlement, as well as a selfemployed claimant being advised
to give up work to receive more
money.
A DWP whistleblower said:
?Sometimes we?ll have a couple of
people on our team on leave or off
sick and then the work really piles
up at that point and these claims
have not been given the due attention they deserve.
?A lot of people can miss their
payments ... It could mean that
they won?t be able to eat for another couple of days, it?s very tough
on them.?
Some 70 per cent of staff polled
said they felt the flagship wel-
fare reform?s roll-out should be
stopped, while 68 per cent said
they disagreed with a statement
from David Gauke, the former
work and pensions secretary, that
staff believe Universal Credit is
giving claimants ?the tools to help
people transform their lives?.
Last autumn, the Government
said Universal Credit claimants
with mental health issues would
now be dealt with more sympathetically, as it announced an enhanced mental health training
programme for Jobcentre staff.
However, 87 per cent of those
polled said they had not received
any additional mental health
training since November 2017.
Some 79 per cent of respondents
said they did not feel there were
sufficient staff to meet the needs
of their current workload.
A DWP spokeswoman said: ?We
strongly dispute these claims and
this is an extremely small, selfselected and flawed survey that is
unrepresentative of our staff delivering Universal Credit.?
The programme, which airs tonight, raises fresh concerns over
the timeliness of payments, as
well as highlighting examples of

?We are not a secretive group
trying to take over the world?
Tom

twilliams@nqo.com
FIVE decades after the
Freemasons first attempted to move into Didcot, a
group is hoping the town?s
expansion means it?s finally time to open a lodge.
Masons in the town are on the
look-out for others who are interested in setting up the lodge,
which would join eleven existing
branches in nearby Abingdon,
Wantage and Wallingford.
It comes as the organisation?s
Grand Lodge launched an openness drive, taking out adverts
entitled ?enough is enough? in an
attempt to dispel ?ongoing gross
misrepresentation?.
Freemasons first attempted
to set up a lodge in Didcot in
the 1960s but found no suitable
building and instead attached
themselves to other lodges.
Maurice Dixon, the chairman
of the lodge steering group, said
the organisation would be a
chance for masons to meet and
contribute to the town.
Charities and good causes will
be supported with funding and
by masons offering to volunteer.
Hoping to open in June, Mr
Dixon said: ?There is so much
going on in Didcot and we want
to support that.
?Being a Freemason encourages good men to become better
and we are just a group of people trying to make an impact on
where we live.

LAUNCH: Freemasons want to set up
new lodge as openness drive continues
this is my way of doing that.
Through the ceremonies we reflect on moral issues such as supporting those in need and acting
with integrity.
?We also provide an opportunity to improve self-esteem and
confidence so that we can make
a worthwhile contribution to society.?
The lodge will initially be for
existing masons with new people invited to join at a later date.
But Mr Dixon said the majority
of interest so far was from people who wanted to become masons and he needs more existing
masons to volunteer as founders
before setting up the lodge.
Mr Dixon said, once established, the group would be open
to new members from all walks
of life, regardless of faith or
ethnicity, with each application
carefully considered.
He said many of the myths
around the men-only organisation?s supposedly shady operations come from the fact that
details of its initiation ceremonies are kept a closely-guarded
secret.
He added: ?It means it has
a lasting impact when you go
through it yourself.
?It is part of your journey to
becoming a better person and if
you ask anyone they will tell you
what a transformative experience it is.
?We are not some kind of secretive organisation that is trying
to take over the world as people
who have read Dan Brown novels might believe.
?This image some people have
of us is wrong and we are always
happy to explain what we do.?
The new lodge will hold an

Pet care service is ?ned after dog death
A PET care service has been

Court earlier this week to running
an unlicensed animal boarding
establishment.
Herbert, of Simon?s Pet

and dog day care in South
Oxfordshire.
The company was first licensed
to board dogs in 2012 but in 2016
South Oxfordshire District
Council investigated four
complaints from dog owners.
It included the death of a dog,
the escape of two dogs from the
premises and the physical and
emotional care of a puppy.
The investigation discovered
several breaches of the licence
conditions. His attempts to renew
a licence in January 2017 were
refused.
Despite this he admitted he had
cared for between four and six
dogs since the refusal.
The council?s cabinet member
for environment, Caroline
Newton, said: ?I hope this case
will act as a warning that we
aren?t just here to process
licence applications ? we will
prosecute anybody who doesn?t
maintain the levels of care

Get rid of this
monument to a
shocking crime
FOR 11 years, the charred shell of Red
Cottage has stood eerily empty at the
southern entrance to the city.
Sticking out like a rotten tooth among the
clutter of roads, pylons, a park-and-ride site,
camping shop and new Travelodge on Old
Abingdon Road, it has become an eyesore
and a sign of neglect. Standing, as it does, at
the southern gateway to the city, it presents
a dreadful ?rst impression of Oxford to
visitors.
To those who know its history, however, it
is more than just a spooky old house.
Two people lost their lives when James
Cox set ?re to it in a ?t of jealousy in 2007.
Cox was jailed and the cottage, still baring
the scars of that terrible event, was boarded
up and allowed to rot.
News that the cottage is on the market,
with permission granted to demolish it and
replace it with new homes, will be uniformly
welcomed.
There was really no other option. The
council says the cottage is too small for the
requirements of modern living. We take that
with a pinch of salt. Many new homes are
smaller still. The real truth is surely that it
would be a very hard sell.
There can?t be many people who would
be happy to pay exorbitant Oxford prices
for a house in which such a grisly crime was
committed. We?ll be glad to see it go ? and
look forward to a happier future for the site.
A tasty addition to
our culinary scene
AMONG the delights of the hot bank
holiday weekend was the opportunity to
graze on delicious snacks served up at the
relaunched Bitten Street Food Market.
One of Oxford?s unsung gems, the market
is ranked by foodies as one of the best in
the country ? and judging by the turnout at
Oxford Castle Quarter on Saturday, word
seems to be getting out.
Traders at the city?s other markets seem
to agree that anything which brings people
into the city centre is good for everyone.
So let?s tuck in every month and get
behind this exceedingly tasty addition to the
city?s culinary scene.

?It?s all I ever wanted to do?
C
HIEF nurse at Oxford
University Hospitals
(OUH) NHS Foundation
Trust Sam Foster took on the
role last September.
Ms Foster, who has been in
nursing all of her adult life, came to
Oxford with the trust in the middle
of what many people have labelled
a ?staf?ng crisis?, while the NHS as
a whole is battling budget restraints
on levels never before seen.
The cost of living in Oxford,
coupled with reduced funding and
changes to foreign recruitment
policy has left the Trust, which
runs John Radcliffe Hospital and
the Churchill Hospital in Oxford,
with hundreds of posts needing to
be ?lled, particularly nursing and
midwifery roles ? an area which Ms
Foster said she intends to focus on.
And with years of experience
under her belt, she is con?dent
of being able to bring positive
changes to Oxfordshire?s acute
health services.
In?uenced by her mother, a
children?s nurse, Ms Foster started
her life in the health services when
she joined St John Ambulance at
11 years old before embarking on a
career as a nurse.
She said: ?I grew up going up to
the hospital in between my mum?s
split shifts to see her.
?My brother and I were often
helping with the teas, and were
talking to the patients from an early
age.
?I guess this is where I developed
my interest in nursing, so I went
on to join St John Ambulance at
11 years old, and at 17 started my
nurse training.
?It?s all I ever wanted to do.?
After a number of years working
as an intensive care nurse and in
medical wards in various senior
nursing posts, Ms Foster was asked
to apply for a more corporate role,
however whether or not to leave
front line care proved a dif?cult
decision.
She said: ?I was very reluctant to
move away from bedside clinical
nursing, however, with some
excellent role models and support,
I was convinced that moving
towards becoming a chief nurse
could enable the opportunity to
in?uence and lead nursing and
midwifery practices on a very wide
scale.
?Remaining in practice was also
part of that option, which was
important to me.?
And despite now having many
years experience as a chief nurse,
Ms Foster said there are still things
she ?nds dif?cult about the role.
She said: ?In this position I can
enable our clinical staff to do their
jobs in caring for our patients,
and I get to meet a wide variety of
staff and members of the public ?
ultimately, they help in?uence me
and shape how I do my job.
?However, nursing is a lifestyle
job which means very long hour so
work/life balance sometimes feels
tough.?
She added: ?It is obviously very
different in terms of the type
of contact that I have with our
patients and carers.
?However, as a chief nurse, I am
hugely privileged to be in a position
IN CHARGE: Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust?s chief nurse Sam Foster
Chief nurse of Oxford?s hospitals Sam
Foster aims to make nursing and midwifery
care best in the land, writes CHRIS ORD
to respond on behalf of our nursing
and midwifery teams and the trust
on matters of care quality, which
more often than not are hugely
positive.
?Being an executive chief nurse
also comes with an accountability
to act as a unitary board member,
and be held to account for the
wider business of the trust and our
decision making.?
Before moving to Oxford, Ms
Foster worked at the Heart of
England NHS Foundation Trust for
eight years, where she held the role
of chief nurse for four years.
She has also worked for a number
of other trusts including other
trusts including Shrewsbury and
Telford and Frimley Park.
Despite the well-documented
struggles with staf?ng and
recruitment currently affecting
OUH, Ms Foster said its reputation
as a centre for excellence as well as
an ?authentic patients focus? were
key factors in prompting her to take
up the role.
However, according to Ms Foster,
Your views
it was the calibre of frontline
staff, particularly on the maternity
wards, that truly helped her make
her decision.
She said: ?I undertook signi?cant
preparation to apply for my post
in Oxford. The reputation of the
Trust and its aspirations to become
a Magnet-accredited Trust for
Nursing Excellence attracted me.
?I also attended two public trust
board meetings and observed an
authentic patient focus in how the
trust did their business.
?But what really clinched it for me
was a number of visits that I made
to the wards and departments
where I observed an extremely high
standard of compassionate care
and met a large number of highly
talented nursing and midwifery
staff ? some of the best that I have
ever met in the NHS.?
Having now settled into the role
over the last seven months, one of
the main areas Ms Foster has been
looking to improve is the level of
bed-blocking in the Oxfordshire?s
hospitals ? a major problem in the
Write to: Letters, Oxford Mail, Osney Mead, Oxford,
OX2 0EJ or email letters@oxfordmail.co.uk
area for a number of years.
She said: ?I have been leading the
trust?s urgent care improvement
programme, and one of the key
areas of responsibility for me has
been leading the implementation
of a weekly review of all of our
patients who have been in our
trust for over seven days, and then
working with our system healthcare
colleagues to ensure that the right
care is available to support their
discharge if required.?
Going forward, Ms Foster said the
shortage of nurses and midwives,
both locally and nationally, remains
one of the biggest issues needing
to be addressed. She said: ?There is
a national shortage of nurses and
midwives. For the ?rst time ever,
more registrants are leaving the
register than joining.
?There have been many funding
changes to nurse and midwifery
training and education, and
increased requirements for
overseas nurses and midwives
which have all hampered our
ability to recruit.
?We are very focused on retaining
our staff, but the cost of living in
Oxford is an issue for us.?
She added: ?Ultimately, I hope
to build the trust?s reputation as
one of the best to work for in the
country, and that we aim to provide
the best nursing and midwifery
care in the land.?

Smart new look for historic city pub
Andy

The Royal
Blenheim is an
attractive city
centre pub and
simply needed
to be updated
affrench@nqo.com
OXFORD?S
Royal
Blenheim pub has a
new look after being
refurbished.
The imposing 19th century city centre pub has reopened following the �,000
revamp of its interior, in a
joint partnership of three
breweries, Everards, Titanic and Oxfordshire?s
own White Horse Brewery.
The St Ebbe?s Street pub,
popular with real and craft
ale drinkers, was closed for
a month to allow refurbishment work to go ahead.
Steve Hay, the new manager, said: ?The Royal
Blenheim is an attractive
city centre pub and simply
needed to be updated.
?It attracts a loyal clientele and we wanted to
retain the traditional ambience of the pub while
making minor alterations
to reconfigure the bar area
and upgrade the fittings
and furniture.
?The pub has a reputation for the quality of its

?As the refurbishment
was taking place we felt
it was also a great time to
give our food offering a bit

?We have relaunched
with a new menu which
will include pub classics,
light bites and ?dirty fries?.
?The menu also includes
dishes for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diets.?
The
refurbishment
has been completed in a
unique partnership between three breweries,
White Horse, of Stanford
in the Vale, near Wan-
Picture: White Horse Brewery
tage, Stoke-based Titanic
Brewery and Everards, of
Leicester. The trio combined to relaunch the pub
in an agreement which offers a wide range of beers
for drinkers.
The partnership is a new
version of Project William, an initiative which
began in the late 1990s
as Everards and Titanic
worked together to reopen
hostelries.
At the Royal Blenheim
Everards are the main
funders,
Titanic
manage the pub as part of its
growing portfolio, and the
White Horse Brewery sells
its beers.
Titanic Brewery owners,
brothers David and Keith
Bott, are also shareholders
in the White Horse Brewery.
David Bott said: ?White
Horse now has a strong
presence in Oxford city
centre through the Royal
Blenheim, while Titanic
and Everards gain a presence for beers including
Plum Porter, Tiger and
Sunchaser. The Royal Blenheim is a stunning looking
city centre building and
the refurb has provided
customers old and new
with an interior to match.?

Limits on speed
and parking at
sports facility
PLANS have been lodged to extend speed
and parking restrictions once a new multimillion pound sports facility opens.
Oxfordshire County Council wants to
extend the area covered by a 40mph
speed limit as well as no stopping and
waiting zones near the new sports park in
Oxford Road, Horspath.
The council is currently consulting on the
plans which it says are needed to make
the area safe for all road users.
A statement said: ?Due to the
development of land adjacent to Oxford
Road in Horspath, it is proposed to extend
the 40mph speed limit as well as the
prohibition of waiting at any time and
clearway eastwards towards the Horsptah
village boundary.
?This is to help prevent obstruction to
through traffic and generally make it safe
for all other road users.?
The first pitches at the �9m sports park
were laid at the start of the year ahead of
a summer opening.
In March, Oxford United confirmed the
club would train from the new facility while
new football, cricket and softball pitches,
a pavilion and changing rooms will be
available to hire by local groups.
The speed limit on the stretch of road in
question is currently 50mph.
Double yellow lines would be extended
eastwards from the Eastern A4142 bypass
to Horspath Village.
The consultation ends on June 1.

The tree in Avon Crescent
makes up part of an ?ornamental
garden? originally created to add
green open space to the housing
estate.
But householders woke up on
Sunday morning to find one of
the trees on the green had been
felled.
Bicester mayor Les Sibley, who
is also a nearby resident, said: ?It
is outrageous really, whether it is
private land or not it is vandalism.
?The community has used this
space for recreational purposes
for many years.
?The open space was designed
as an ornamental garden for that
very reason.
?The worst part is that it is an
Naomi
Herring
nherring@nqo.com
irreversible act and has ruined
the character of the area.?
Mr Sibley said the tree, protected by a Tree Preservation Order
(TPO), needed permission from
Cherwell District Council to be
brought down.
The council has confirmed that
the order covered the tree in
question.
A TPO is made by a local planning authority to protect specific
trees or woodlands and prohibits
cutting down, topping, lopping,
uprooting, wilful damage and
wilful destruction.
The district council has also
said its planning enforcement
team was investigating the fell-
ing and would take further action as required.
The land sits at the end of a
row of houses in Avon Crescent
and is separate to the rest of the
woodland by a small path.
It has been subject to a number of planning applications in
recent years, but is yet to have
plans for any construction approved.
Mr Sibley added: ?They are
protected by a TPO, so even if it?s
private land you would still need
permission from the council and
there would have to be good reason for removing them.
?It is terrible really, especially if it is to put pressure on the
council and local residents to accept any planning applications.?
It is not known who is responsible for bringing down the tree
and Cherwell District council is
currently investigating the felling.

Sex pest is given six months to
prove himself or face jail term
A PROLIFIC sex offender who three
times flouted a court order banning
him from contacting children has
been given six months to prove
himself or face jail.
Oliver Fitzroy, 64, of North Street,
Bicester, had already been made
subject to a sexual harm prevention
order on May 16, 2015, banning him
from having any contact with
children.
The order was imposed after he
was convicted of numerous
offences dating back to 1974
including inciting a child to engage
in sexual activity and attempted
buggery.
He first appeared at Oxford Crown
Court for breaching the order three
times in February where his
sentencing was adjourned to May 3
while he completed an online
course to tackle his offending.
At his sentencing on Thursday,
the same defence team told the
court that the course would in fact
need more time to complete and
requested his sentence be put off.

COURT REPORTER
wwalker@nqo.com
Agreeing to adjourn the case,
Judge Nigel Daly said that he would
give Fitzroy another six months to
complete the Horizon programme
and prove he could obey the court.
He said: ?I propose to defer
sentence for six months.
?During that period I anticipate
and expect that he will complete
any programme he is presently
required to complete and also
commit no further offences.
?If you continue to do as you have
been doing it may be that I can
avoid passing an immediate
custodial sentence.?
Previously, the court had heard
that Fitzroy had flouted the order by
engaging in conversation with boys
under the age of 16 on three
occasions.
Prosecutor Henry James said that
on one occasion he had invited a

Police?s � mug spend divides opinion
If the
mugs are
actually
going to be
of use then
I would say
it is money
well spent
Fran
Way
fway@nqo.com
RESIDENTS have voiced
their opinions on the
purchase
of
�,000
worth of mugs and other promotional memorabilia by Thames Valley
Police.
As we reported on the
front page of Tuesday?s
Oxford Mail, the force
spent �459 on 2,268 mugs
to publicise its Stronghold
drugs operation.
Thames Valley Police
Federation
chairman
Craig O?Leary admitted
the purchases would be
contentious, but said the
operation needed to be promoted and the merchandise could act as a promotional tool for years, unlike
a post on social media that
would quickly fade.
However, the spending
divided the opinions of
locals around the county,
as the Oxford Mail found
when we took to the streets.
Cumnor resident Sandra
Gee, 59, said: ?They?ll end
up in landfill. It?s crazy.?
The Oxford University
VIEWS: The Stronghold mug and, clockwise from top left, Sandra Gee, Matt Lodewood, Sam Whitby and
Alaster Haigh-Edevane
executive assistant added:
?I can?t see the point in a
mug, surely the money is
better spent on counselling
or a service at the GP.
?Certainly not on mugs.?
The promotional merchandise was stamped with
TVP?s operation Stronghold, which aims to reduce serious and organised
crime across the region.
In a Freedom of Information request submitted
by the Oxford Mail, data
showed the force had purchased more than 2,000
mugs at a cost of �459
plus VAT.
It also bought a further
13,565 pieces of unspecified merchandise for a to-
tal of �887 plus VAT.
Matt
Lodewood, of
Wantage, said it was wrong
to use such a large amount
of taxpayers? money on
merchandise.
He added: ?They?ve put
�,000 into mugs? Why?
Seems like it is a waste of
the taxpayers? money and
police time.
?I definitely think it
could be put to better use.?
Others, like Sam Whitby ? a chemist in the city
? said: ?I think it is hard to
know whether �,000 is a
lot of money for this.
?A councillor costs a lot
more per year I?m sure. I
don?t think I?m actually entitled to an opinion on the
use of their money. The police know how to spend it
and they are under huge
pressure.?
Botley resident Alaster
Haigh-Edevane said that
if there was evidence on
the products directly impacting drug use then the
purchase would be beneficial.
The Citizens Advice Bureau volunteer said: ?If the
mugs are actually going to
be of use then I would say
it is money well spent.?
Rugby star opens
new tool supplier
AN ENGLAND rugby star made an
appearance at the opening of a new branch
of a tool shop.
Courtney Lawes, who also plays for
Northampton Saints, engaged in some
throwing practice, talked tactics and signed
shirts at the new branch of Toolstation in the
Trident Business Park, Didcot, last week.
Lawes, who has 65 England caps and
played on last year?s tour of New Zealand
with the British and Irish Lions, chatted to
customers and bought some adhesive and
rope so that he could ?nish building and
?xing play equipment for his children.
The shop is now open seven days a week.
Festival needs you
BUSINESSES and community groups are
needed to help publicise an upcoming
cultural festival.
Oxford Mela, a free family festival in
Blackbird Leys, with dance, music and food,
is run by the Oxford Hindu Temple and takes
place on June 17.
Organisers are asking for people to gather
at the Leys Pools and Leisure on Sunday to
promote it by saying a few words about what
the area means to them as they put together
a video for the event. Meet at 12.30pm.
Batman to burst in
GOTHAM city?s most famous residents will
be making an appearance at a Banbury
shopping centre.
Batman and arch-nemesis the Joker will
appear at intervals throughout the day from
11am until 4pm on Saturday at Castle Quay.
Children can have their face painted

Golden opportunity to
enhance city education
CONGRATULATIONS to Oxford
Harlequins RFC on their
projected move from Marston
Ferry Road to a site three times
bigger at Horspath Sports
Ground, with work to begin on
their new home on May 14, ready
for the new season in September
(Oxford Mail, May 2). As Quins
chairman Neil Hopper has said:
?This is the end of a two-year
process to get to this point.?
It has to be presumed that the
Quins? plans were from the outset
known to the Cherwell School,
whose South Site is the Quins?
Marston Ferry ground?s immediate
neighbour and it has to be
assumed that the River Learning
Trust (RLT) and the Education
Skills and Learning Agency
(ESLA) would have considered
the possibility of a Cherwell
annexe on the liberated Quins
site. Although an FOI request was
made for details of meetings and
contacts between the RLT, the
ESLA, and contractors Galliford
Try, which could have revealed
Get in
touch:
how due diligence led the ESLA to
choose the in-every-way
unsuitable Harlow Centre in Old
Marston for the proposed 1,260pupil Swan Free School, this
information was deemed to be
commercially sensitive and so is
in effect ?a state secret?. How odd
when more than �m of
taxpayers? money is at stake.
Now that the Quins move has
been con?rmed, Paul James, CEO
of the River Learning Trust, and
the ESLA agents who chose the
Harlow site, have a public duty to
think again: a 450-pupil Cherwell
annexe, open, let?s say, by
September 2019 (the Harlow
Swan proposed buildings are
scheduled to open in September
2021), would easily meet the
demand for secondary places at
Cherwell, especially at a time
when primary numbers in Oxford
are in a demographic dip. The
potential Quins-Cherwell site
would not require any changes to
Marston Ferry Road access and
exit, nor in?ict the kind of
environmental, social, and
communal damage which the
1260 Swan at Harlow would bring.
Meanwhile, plans for a Swan
Free School at Osney Mead must
be reconsidered, let?s say a 600to 800-pupil school, to meet
current demand as well as future
demand from new housing
proposed for Oxpens and
elsewhere in Oxford?s so-called
West End. Here is a golden
opportunity for the enhancement
of secondary education across
Oxford. The ball, as it were, now
lies with Mr James and his RLT.
Play up, sir, and do the
honourable thing!

Remember When
IT HAPPENED IN...
1663: The ?rst Theatre Royal, in
London?s Drury Lane, opened.
1765: HMS Victory, Nelson?s
?agship, was launched at
Chatham having cost �3,176
and three shillings. It is now
preserved at Portsmouth.
1812: Poet Robert Browning was
born in London.
1833: Johannes Brahms,
German composer, was born in

great Russian composer, was
born in Kamsko-Votkinsk.
1915: The Cunard liner Lusitania
was torpedoed by a German
submarine off Ireland with the
loss of 1,198 lives.
Art took pride of place
A
N ARTIST with a love
of painting wildlife
used her creative
talents to make life imitate
art at an Oxford pub.
Pierina Matthews? Tackley
home was full of images of
horses, cats, dogs and even
a falcon, but as her daughter
Gemma approached school
age she decided to take her
animals to market and start
painting for pro?t.
One of her ?rst commissions
in December 1987 was for
John Hunt ? landlord of the
Chequers Inn in St Thomas?s,
Oxford.
It was the local for workers at
the Post Of?ce sorting of?ce,
where her husband Ian worked
on the night shift.
Pride of place in the bar
of the Chequers went to a
painting of the pub itself, plus
one of spaniel Rose, who lived
there.
Trained at Bournemouth
and Poole Art College, she
previously specialised in
ceramics, and by the 1980s
had a complete pottery
(including kiln, wheel, and a
large quantity of clay) with
items for sale at her father?s
farm in Postcombe, near
Thame.
Her mother, Queenie Ridone,
also painted, as did her fatherin-law Jack Matthews from
Kidlington ? the trio even
holding a family exhibition
together.
1919: Maria Eva Peron, ??Evita?,
legendary Argentinian, was
born in Los Toldos, near Buenos
Aires, Argentina, the illegitimate
daughter of a cook.
1945: Germany surrendered
unconditionally to the Allies at
Rheims.
1973: The Washington Post won
the Public Service Pulitzer Prize
for the work of its reporters Bob
Woodward and Carl Bernstein in
exposing the Watergate scandal.
2007: The tomb of Herod the
Great was discovered.

Case shows failings
in legal aid system
A
JUDGE has publicly criticised the legal aid
system after a woman was forced to run
her own case against her former partner,
even though there were allegations made within
the case that he had raped her, because she
could not afford a lawyer, and could not obtain
legal aid to be represented.
The family court was deciding arrangements
for the couple?s daughter.
Evidence was being given regarding
allegations of sexual abuse by the father
against the mother, and the mother walked
out of court. District Judge Simon Read
said the situation created a ?likelihood? of a
miscarriage of justice, and considered there
was a high likelihood that had either or both
parents been represented he might well have
reached a different conclusion. He noted
that both parties had appeared ?in person?
because neither could afford a lawyer or were
eligible for legal aid.
The judge said he had asked questions rather
than having the pair cross-examine each other.
But he said the woman became distressed and
walked out of court when questions moved to
allegations of a ?sexual nature?.
In his judgment, he said no criminal court
would have allowed proceedings to continue
without representation for both parties.
The judge found allegations of assault by the
father against the mother and an older son
proved. But he went on to say that because of
?the lack of opportunity for them to be tested
on oath? he could not ?nd allegations of rape,
sexual assault and abusive behaviour proven.
The judge said the questions he asked the
father ?were rather stilted, and lacked any
of the ?nesse, insight or skill of those that
they would have had had they been asked
by an advocate who had prepared the case
properly?.
Changes introduced under the Legal Aid,
Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act
2012 (LASPO) removed most legal aid in the
family courts except where there is de?ned
evidence of domestic abuse. But in order to
obtain Legal Aid, you have to provide speci?c
evidence of the abuse, as well as being subject
to a means test on income and assets.
As a family practitioner of over 20 years?
experience, I can con?rm that this is not an
unusual occurrence. The Family Courts in
England and Wales are full of cases such
as this, with people struggling to represent
themselves in extremely challenging and
emotive situations, often dealing with
incredibly complex and sensitive issues.
LASPO was clearly designed to save the public
purse, but in fact in many cases, its effects are
simply to produce additional costs elsewhere
in the system; delays in court; ineffective
hearings; children losing contact with one
of their parents; parents feeling unable to
properly test evidence in court; mental health
issues; child protection concerns, and so on.
It is important to note that Legal Aid is still
available for child protection matters, and
domestic abuse relief, as well as certain other
categories of family law, providing you have
the necessary proof of domestic abuse or
child protection exemptions, so if you think
you might qualify, do check with a legal aid
solicitor. Most areas are subject to ?nancial
eligibility, so check the legal aid calculator
civil-eligibility-calculator.justice.gov.uk
If you feel, as many of us involved in the
Family Justice system do, that the system is at
breaking point because of the legal aid cuts,
then contact your MP!

Determined efforts of an
active PTA help to deliver
funding for regular school
trips, and pupils get to enjoy
experiences at theatres and
museums just up the A34 in
Oxford.
The 175-pupil school near
Abingdon, largely serves
Drayton, with some pupils
attending from Sutton
Courtenay and South
Abingdon.
Headteacher Marc Knight
said his team tried to make the
most of being a short distance
from the historic city.
He said: ?The opportunities
for cultural enrichment are
really strong ? every term,
every class goes on an
enrichment trip or someone
comes in to talk to them.
?We think it?s important to
give children those extra
opportunities, and with Oxford
on our doorstep we make use
of the museums and shows.?
He commended the efforts of
the Friends of Drayton School
Association, the parentteacher group that supports
and fundraises for the schoo
Pupils also get to write an
receive letters to and from a
linked school in Uganda, an
raise money to support that
school when they can.
On World Book Day they
raised enough to buy the
Ugandan school 100 new
books.
Mr Knight, who became h
three years ago, said the sch
had secured excellent
academic results, including
being in the top 10 per cent
nationally for progress in
reading.
He added: ?It?s really
important to do a good
job in preparing them
for secondary school.
?It?s about sending
them off with great
results, but also
memorable
experiences.?
A new classroom
opened at the school
in September as it
increased its intake,
to meet demands of
new housing.

IT?S that time of year when schools
celebrate the month of May.
Many elect May Queens ? and

PEOPLE POWER: Villagers protest at the proposed demolition of their 130-year-old railway bridge in 1997
The demolition plan was a
bridge too far for these folk
P
EOPLE power won the day when
it was planned to demolish this
Victorian railway bridge.
Villagers at Horspath, near Oxford,
fought for 12 years to save it and were
?nally successful.
The bridge carried trains on the
Oxford-Thame-Princes Risborough line,
which closed in January 1963.
Villager Brian Kelly caused uproar in
1994 when he applied for permission
to build two houses and to demolish
the bridge to provide an access.
Opponents argued that the bridge
not only provided an attractive
backdrop to the village green, but was
an important traf?c-calming measure
which slowed traf?c and kept large
lorries out of the village.
Villagers packed a parish council
meeting to voice their opposition.
Mr Kelly?s plans were turned down,
but then British Rail announced it
would demolish the bridge, using a
19th century law, which meant it did
not need planning permission.
In 1997, villagers, some standing on
the bridge, turned out in force to voice
their opposition to the proposal ? and
?nally they won.
Planning inspector Robert Lyon, who
held a three-day public inquiry in 2006,
agreed that the bridge should stay.
In his report, he said: ?It comes down
to this ? locally the bridge is seen
as unique. While it is not especially
attractive, it contributes greatly to a
sense of local identity and pride.
?Although it is not of any particular
merit visually or as an example of
engineering, what is unusual is its
location, which is so near the heart of
the village that it helps to de?ne the
village. Indeed, it is a prime reminder of
the Victorian part of Horspath?s history.
?That it is viewed with favour and
pride locally is evident not just by the
representations made at the inquiry,
but by the fact that I was shown
evidence of school projects.?
He also pointed out it would take
trees 15 years to grow high enough to
provide cover.
Horspath parish councillor David
Horsley described the decision as a
victory for people power.
He said: ?Bells are ringing in the
village at the moment, it is great news.
The power of the people has saved the
bridge.?

T
WO Oxford police
of?cers and a civilian
received bravery awards
from the Queen after a man
blew up his council house
with his family inside.
The man, Michael Molloy, was
killed in the explosion at Alice
Smith Square, Littlemore, in June
1969, but his wife and children
survived.
One boy was in severe danger
and was saved thanks to the
courageous work of Pc David
Dutson, 24, Det Con Ron Orman,
35, and Geoffrey Thomas, 24,
who were later commended.
Molloy, a demolition worker,
had stormed out of his house at
about 11.20pm after a row with
his wife Kathleen and driven off
in his van packed with explosives
and detonators,
He had threatened to blow up
himself and anyone else who
came near him. Police began a
huge search of the city.
Molloy returned home at
1.10am, parked his van outside
and carried a box with trailing
wires into the house.
There was an immediate
explosion which destroyed his
house and badly damaged the
one next door.
Mrs Molloy and six of the
couple?s seven children, who
were aged three to 14, were in the
house and some were asleep.
Police and neighbours rescued
most of the family, but one
boy was trapped under beams
of burning timber that were in
imminent danger of collapsing.
Alan Buckingham, former
commandant of special
constables with Thames Valley,
recalls: ?Pc Orman and Mr
Thomas supported the beams
while Pc Dutson, despite hot tiles
and a burning beam falling on his
neck, climbed underneath to pull
the child free.
?The heat was so intense that
water had to be poured over the
three rescuers by a neighbour.
?When the child had been
released and the beams left
unsupported, part of the roof
immediately collapsed on the
spot where the rescue had been
carried out.?
The three men, who later
helped another of the children
to safety, received the Queen?s
Commendation for Brave
Conduct for rescuing the ?rst
child.
Mr Thomas, a factory worker,
of Redmore Close, Littlemore,
received a letter from the Home
BLOWN

Of?ce telling him of his award.
He said: ?I had to read the letter a
few times before it could sink in that
I was getting a commendation.?
The awards were presented by
the Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire,
Colonel John Thomson, at St
Aldate?s police station.
Mrs Molloy, two of her children,
Dean, 10, and William, two, and Pc
Dutson were taken to hospital for
treatment for burns.
The other children, Sally, 14,
Shean, 12, Tim, nine, Catherine,
seven, and Francis, four, escaped
unhurt.
Neighbours Harry and Jean Ellis
and their eight children, whose
home was badly damaged in the
explosion, were given a temporary
home at Berins?eld.
Oxford coroner Tom Gardiner later
recorded a verdict that Molloy had
killed himself.
We were reminded of the
Littlemore explosion following the
recent death of Pc Dutson.
He had started his working life as
a security of?cer in Manchester and
then spent 18 months with Berkshire
Police before joining the Oxford City
force as Pc 235 in January 1966.
He became a Thames Valley
policeman when the Oxford,
Oxfordshire, Berkshire,
Buckinghamshire and Reading
forces amalgamated in April 1968.

For those that didn?t elect a queen,
there were plenty of opportunities
to sing May songs and dance around
the maypole.
Picture 1 shows May Queen Jane
Maskell, ?ve, and May Lord Mark
Colwell, nine, at St Michael?s School
at New Marston, Oxford.
They are accompanied by their
attendants, Kelly Charlett, ?ve, Emma
Forty, seven, Leigh Bennett, six, and
Andrew Clarke, ?ve, and traditional
May characters, Jack in the Green, a
clown and a chimney sweep.
They led a parade from their
school along Marston Road in
1983 to Marston Court, where they
entertained elderly residents with
May songs and dances.
Back at school, pupils enjoyed
maypole dancing, a mummers? play,
sword dancing and a celebration tea.
Maypole dancing was the focus of
the celebrations at St Christopher?s
School, Cowley, in 1990, seen in
Picture 2.
The children, watched by many of
their parents, were accompanied by
?ddle player Jimmy Gordon, 80, of
Hudson Road, Rose Hill, a former
teacher at East Oxford School.

Osborne, ?ve, front.
Marina was crowned by her
predecessor, Lisa Newbury, 12.
The school?s 94 pupils and 20
playgroup children took part in
country dancing, singing and a jig
around the maypole.
The King and Queen, seen
in Picture 4, led the May Day
procession at the village school at
Fritwell, near Bicester, in 1969.
We don?t know their names, but
our sister paper, The Oxford Times,

Belltower ?too dangerous?
BELLRINGERS at All Saints
Church, Didcot, were facing a
long layoff when the bells were
declared too dangerous to ring.
Instead of ding-donging the big
bells, they tinkled away on a set
of handbells. Experts had said the
reverberations of the bells could
bring down the bell tower which
was riddled with dry rot.
Band foreman Philip Roberts
said in 1984: ?With handbells,
we can do what we did with
the tower bells plus more, like
Christmas carols.?
He is pictured with fellow
bellringers, Lorraine James, left,
and Amanda Arkell.
They had held a number of fundraising
events for the National Children?s Home
charity.
To thank them for their efforts, Cedric
joined them at one of their school
assemblies in 1998.

THE GUERNSEY LITERARY
AND POTATO PEEL PIE
SOCIETY (12A)
THE Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel
Pie Society is a cumbersome title for a
sweeping tale of self-sacri?ce, based on
the posthumously published novel by
Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. Set
predominantly on the island during and after
the Second World War, Newell?s chocolatebox romance was ?lmed in picturesque
Devon and is laden with emotional soft
centres to guarantee swoons of satisfaction.
The luminous Lily James now casts a warm
glow as one point of a tantalising love
triangle that provides the framework for a
grim history lesson peppered with heartache.

CRICKET
Oxon suffer double
loss in T20 openers
OXFORDSHIRE had
two contrasting defeats
when
they
opened their Unicorns Counties T20
campaign
against
Herefordshire
at
Bicester & North Oxford.
After suffering an agonising two-run loss in the
first match of the doubleheader, the host county
went down by a convincing 65 runs in the second,
taking only one wicket in
the process.
A superb all-round display by Harvey Eltham
could not prevent Oxon
coming up short in the
first clash.
The off-spinner took 3-12
from his four overs to restrict the visitors, who had
chosen to bat first, to just
128-6 from their 20 overs.
This was a small target,
but Oxon soon slumped to

Today?s runners
Herefordshire won by
65 runs
54-6 in reply.
They were back in the
hunt after a seventh-wicket stand of 55 by Eltham
and Leo Bethell, which
looked like snatching a
dramatic victory.
With five runs to win off
seven balls and three wickets standing, Joe Thomas
was bowled by the last delivery of the 19th over.
Then, from the third ball
of the final over, Eltham
was run out backing up,
having made a superb 50
from 31 balls.
Lawrence Brock was
bowled off the next delivery to leave Oxon all out
for 126 from 19.4 overs.
The second game was
a cakewalk for Herefordshire, who rattled up 203-1,
Matt Pardoe scoring a brilliant 111 not out from 62
balls. The hosts mustered
just 138-9 in reply.
They will be hoping for
better luck in two games
against Shropshire at
Shrewsbury today.

Trained by Richard Hannon and ridden by Sean
Levey, the chestnut filly
could only finish fourth in
the Nell Gwyn Stakes less
than three weeks ago, but
significantly raised her
game to claim Classic glory.
Fillies? Mile heroine Laurens looked the likely winner when committing for
home early.
But but she was mowed
down late by Billesdon
Brook and had to make do
with the runner-up spot.

Happily, the 11-4 favourite,
was third.
Levey said: ?It?s a massive
shock, to be honest.?
Breaking records has become a habit for trainer
Aidan O?Brien and Saxon
Warrior provided him with
another when giving him
an unprecedented ninth
Qipco 2000 Guineas on Saturday.
It was a landmark victory on more than one front,
as it not only provided the
Ballydoyle master with his
300th Group One success,
but was a first at the same
level for his son, and winning jockey, Donnacha.

Smith claims ?rst Moto GP points of year
BRADLEY Smith was upbeat after
securing his first MotoGP points
of the season with a 13th placedfinish in the Spanish race at
Jerez.
The Oxfordshire rider?s best
finish, which brought him three
points, came a few days after
learning that he has lost his
factory ride for the Red Bull KTM
team to Yamaha star Johann
Zarco next season.
Smith challenged Pol
Espargaro all the way, but
dropped a place on the last bend
after a failed attempt to overtake
his Spanish teammate.
After the race, Smith said: ?It
was a bit of a shame to lose a
place, but I was pleased with my
pace.
?It is nice to see our updated
bike looking strong. It is looking
like the right direction.?

CRICKET HOME COUNTIES PREMIER LEAGUE
Moriarty shines as Rowant
send Oxford to derby loss
ASTON Rowant got their
Division 1 campaign off
to a flying start with a
five-wicket victory away
to Oxford on Saturday.
Star of the show in this derby
clash was South African teenager Dan Moriarty, who collected three wickets and made
a valuable 31 to see the visitors
over the line in a low-scoring
match.
Choosing to bat first, Oxford made a horrendous start,
crashing to 9-5.
Owyn Tong-Jones, Muhammad Ayub and John Barrett
all fell for ducks, while Harvey
Eltham was run out by Tom
Condon for four, while Shami
Mendis fell for one.
Skipper Jamie Perkin led a
counter-attack with an unbeaten 56 off 99 balls.
His only support came from
Connor Kilpatrick, who became the first of three wickets
for left-arm spinner Moriarty
as Oxford were shot out for just
96.
Moriarty finished with 3-23
and seamer Leo Bethell 3-25.
Rowant slipped to 23-3 in reply, but Chris Watling (45) and
Moriarty, put on 67 to help the
IN THOUGHT: Leo Bethell prepares to
deliver another ball for Rowant
visitors to a comfortable victory.
Craig Haupt became the first
batsman to reach 10,000 runs in
the league during Banbury?s
84-run defeat at Henley.
The
left-handed
opener
reached his target during his
innings of 26 in Banbury?s reply of 157 all out to the hosts?
total of 241-8 from 50 overs.
Graham Beer made a promising debut for Banbury with 2-33
in ten overs.
After Haupt and Lloyd Sabin
put on 60 for the first wicket,
Banbury fell away against spinner Gurveer Singh, who took
5-45.
A brilliant unbeaten 97 from
skipper Michael Beard helped
Thame Town to a 24-run victory at Finchampstead.
After the visitors, who chose
to bat first, slumped to 28-4,
Beard dominated the innings.
He took an amazing 27 runs,
including four sixes off the final over to lift them to 210-7
from their allocation.
Finchampstead slipped to
103-7 in reply, but rallied to 1869 by the close, off-spinner Gamindu Kanishka taking 4-23.
Horspath tumbled to a 63-run
defeat at Slough.
Having elected to bowl, Horspath were unable to stop Slough
rattling up 243-6 with Lincolnshire?s Conrad Louth hitting 106 off 127 balls with one
six and eight fours.
Louth shared a stand of 100
for the second wicket with Fahim Qureshi (48) and a partnership of 88 with Shahid Yousaf
(41) for the third.
It looked as if Horspath may
face an even bigger target at
one stage, but a fightback saw
the visitors pick up four late
wickets for ten runs courtesy
of Tom Cosford (2-37) and Darryl Brown (2-45).
Horspath were always struggling after losing opener Robbie
Eason and Tom Coleman with
just 16 on the board.
Mark Skelton (37) top-scored
as they closed on 180-9 to secure
a third batting point.

Shurmer shines in Tew?s low-scoring win
GREAT & Little Tew made a
stunning recovery from 25-5
to record a 24-run victory in
tense Division 2 clash at
home to Burnham.
Narrowly relegated last
season, Tew will be boosted
by this result in their bid to
bounce straight back to the
top flight.
Having been put in to bat,
the host were soon in deep
trouble.
The innings was held
together by Robbie Shurmer,
who hit 52 not out, and he
received good support from
Tom Young (25).
Even so, their total of 115
from 38.4 overs seemed
inadequate.
But Burnham also struggled
in the conditions, with the Tew
bowlers sharing out the
wickets.
Perhaps the decisive factor
were two super run outs by
Curtly Slatter as the visitors
were dismissed for 101 in the
44th over.
Shipton-under-Wychwood
made an inauspicious start to
the new campaign when they
lost by eight wickets away to
Buckingham Town.
Put in to bat, the visitors
were soon struggling at 20-4,
not helped by the running out
of Luke Champion for two.
Charlie Miller tried to lead a
recovery with an aggressive
47 from 56 balls, including
two sixes and six fours.
Scott Harris added some
tail-end resistance, but
Shipton were all out for 125 in
31.2 overs.
The visitors opening attack
of skipper Anupam Sanklecha
and Scott Harris kept it tight
in their ten-over spells, but
once they came off the
floodgates opened and
Buckingham cruised to victory
with nearly 20 overs to spare.

THE BIG MATCH
HIGH FLIER: Malachi Napa takes evasive action
REUNION: Jack Payne and Ryan Ledson catch up on the touchline
TRYING HIS LUCK: Cameron Brannagan with a early shot
Fazackerley: Game summed up season
DEREK Fazackerley admitted familiar
failings let Oxford United down on the
final day of the season.
The U?s went down 2-1 at a
Blackburn Rovers side who finished
the campaign as Sky Bet League One
runners-up.
Darragh Lenihan headed the hosts
in front via a free-kick from Charlie
Mulgrew, who then had a penalty
saved by Simon Eastwood.
United showed spirit to dig in and
then equalise through James Henry,
before Jack Payne came off the bench
to score the winner.
Fazackerley said: ?The difference
between the two sides was what
happened in the two penalty areas
and they were slightly better than us.
?That?s why they?re going to the
Championship.
?We played some decent football in
good areas, but just didn?t have that
finishing touch when you needed it.
?It?s been an Achilles heel all
season that we conceded from a
set-play.
?Other than that there were some
good displays and the lads showed a
lot of spirit.
?In fairness we had a fantastic
travelling support again and other
than the result I don?t think we could
be too disappointed.?
Fazackerley remains the record
appearance holder for Blackburn, so
was pleased to see his former side
return to the Championship at the first
attempt.
He said: ?It?s the end of a long
season and they?ve achieved what
they wanted, which is promotion.
?It?s important for a club of this size,
I?m just a little bit sorry that we?re not
following in their footsteps.?

OXFORD United?s season ended as it had begun ? with Jack
Payne making the difference.
Nine months earlier, the midfielder
had marked the start of his U?s loan
by setting up both goals in a 2-0 win at
Oldham Athletic.
And in similarly sunny conditions
30 miles down the road at Ewood
Park, Payne came off the bench to
strike a deflected winner for Blackburn Rovers, following his January
switch.
On the balance of play it was hard
to make a case against the home side,
roared on by more than 26,000 supporters, taking maximum points.
It was not enough for Tony Mowbray?s side to clinch the Sky Bet
League One title, but that did not take
the edge off the post-match promotion celebrations.
The big relief for United was they
were already guaranteed safety, so
any frustrations they could not hold
on after James Henry?s equaliser will
be quickly forgotten.
There were still reasons for encouragement in the way the visitors had
stayed in the game, more evidence of
boss Karl Robinson?s impact.
His challenge now is to avoid the
mistakes made last summer by rebuilding with the right recruitment
for a crack at the play-offs in 12
months? time.
The U?s manager was already looking to next season with his selection, which included teenagers Owen
James and Albie Hopkins on the
bench for the first time.
Ryan Ledson, who had seemingly
been on the verge of a move to Preston North End last week, was also
surprisingly named as a substitute.
The visitors made a bright start in
the Lancashire sunshine, with Cameron Brannagan firing a left-footed
shot just wide from 20 yards inside
the opening minute.
But it did not take long for Rovers to
hit their stride.
Darragh Lenihan opened the scoring in the 12th minute, when he nodded in a free-kick from central defensive partner Charlie Mulgrew.
Rovers? front four of Danny Graham, Elliott Bennett, Adam Armstrong and Dominic Samuel caused
United all sorts of problems with
their clever movement.
The visitors were often overstretched and needed last-ditch defensive efforts to keep the score at 1-0.
Rob Dickie superbly deflected an
Armstrong shot over the crossbar,
while Todd Kane hacked Corry Evans?s cross clear.
It was not quite one-way traffic, with

TOP STOP: Simon Eastwood keeps out Charlie Mulgrew?s penalty
Brannagan seeing a shot deflected
over for a corner, from which John
Mousinho?s header almost got away
from goalkeeper David Raya.
But Rovers were ahead in terms of
quantity and quality of chances.
And five minutes before the break
they had a penalty when Simon Eastwood brought down Bennett, who had
latched on to Graham?s clever flick
and beaten Kane.
Mulgrew had scored a penalty in
Rovers? 4-2 win at the Kassam Stadium in November, but when he tried to
pick out the same spot, Eastwood de-
nied his former side by palming the
ball wide.
United needed their goalkeeper
again after the restart, turning Bennett?s 25-yarder round the far post
before parrying a fierce rising drive
from Samuel.
But while the scoreline stayed 1-0
the result was in doubt ? and on 66
minutes, United?s travelling fans
were celebrating an equaliser.
A swift counter-attack saw Jon Obika?s shot blocked, but the striker rescued the loose ball and played in Josh
Ruffels, whose low cross was class-
ily swept by Henry just inside the far
post.
Eastwood saved twice from Armstrong as Rovers searched for a response.
It came via the bench, with Payne
restoring the Rovers lead two minutes
after coming on with a deflected effort.
Ewood Park was quickly celebrating a third when Graham bundled
in a Samuel cross, but in the deafening roar the home fans had not heard
the referee?s whistle ruling it out for a
push by the striker.
James, 17, made his debut late on,
before the season finished in farcical
circumstances.
With just seconds of stoppage-time
remaining, thousands of gleeful Rovers fans could not wait any longer and
poured on to the pitch.
Both sets of players were engulfed
and while the prevailing mood was
celebratory, a handful of the pitch invaders chose to goad the visitors.
It ended with Robinson grabbing one
Rovers fan by the throat before the
stewards intervened.
After five minutes the pitch was
cleared for the game to restart for a
couple of seconds, before referee Carl
Boyeson blew for full-time and the
players sprinted down the tunnel.
It was a bizarre finish to a forgettable season for United, who will be
hoping to come back stronger come
August.
OWEN James was left
pinching himself after making
his Oxford United debut in
front of more than 27,000 fans
at Ewood Park.
The 17-year-old from
Finmere, near Buckingham,
played the final seven minutes
of the 2-1 defeat to Blackburn
Rovers.
And the forward, who signed
a professional contract earlier
this season, was thrilled to get
his first taste of the big time.
He said: ?It was absolutely
amazing to get some minutes,
I just want to say thank you to
the people who have helped
me through.
?The stadium?s amazing and
the atmosphere was as well. It
was a really good place to
make your debut.
?I had no idea I would be
coming on ? this was about
seeing what it was like. But
when I got the call I was
buzzing.?
The teenager even had a
crack at topping off a fairytale
debut, but his stoppage-time
effort flew off target.
He said: ?I thought I should
shoot and it went over, but I
had a go and that?s what I?ll
do.
?The gaffer just said ?run
around and enjoy it?, which I
did.?
Boss Robinson
set to turn out
in testimonal
KARL Robinson is in line to
play in his namesake?s
testimonial at the Kassam
Stadium this afternoon.
The Oxford United manager
could be a late call-up for the
game, which marks Les
Robinson?s decade at the club
in the 1990s.
A Liverpool Legends side
featuring the likes of Mark
Wright, Michael Thomas and
Alan Kennedy will provide the
opposition in the 2pm kick-off.
And Karl Robinson urged
supporters to turn out in
force.
He said: ?I?ll be there.
?If they?re short my boots
will be in the car and if they?re
not, then I?ll be in the bar.
?Come out for him. He?s a
legend for what he?s done for
the club and we hope we get
the attendance his dedication
deserves.?

Pepperell?s England beaten in quarter-?nals
EDDIE Pepperell could not
stop England from losing in
the quarter-finals of the
GolfSixes yesterday.
The unique 16-pair event,
held at the Centurion Club in
St Albans, saw Pepperell and
Matt Wallace top their group
on Saturday to progress to
the last eight.
However, France then
proved too strong, winning
holes one and four to record
a 2-0 victory and send the
England team out.
On Saturday, Pepperell and

Afterwards, Robinson indicated the
move was now unlikely.
He said: ?It?s hard because he?s very
committed to this club.
?Unless something comes in that we
feel is a necessity, we have to take (financially), he won?t be moving.
?But if it?s something he really
wants and is very heavily-weighted
financial package for our club we?ll
do it.
?Until that point he wants to be
here.
?We had a conversation on Fri-
against a strong Blackburn side who
will be in the Sky Bet Championship
next season.
He said: ?We came up short a little
bit. We huffed and puffed and we need
to learn that we?ve got to score.
?In the first 25 minutes we were the
better team ? we got in three or four
times and didn?t ask a question (of
the goalkeeper).
?We finish in a very positive frame
of mind.
?Our only two defeats in the last few
games have been to the sides in first
and second and both were by a onegoal margin.
?I think it?s progress, so we have to
move forward now.?

It remains to be seen whether it is
the end of the speculation, or just the
start of a prolonged negotiation.
But it would appear what had
looked a swift, straightforward deal
last week has now changed.
When asked whether that meant
other clubs were involved, Robinson
said: ?Not that I know of.
?Preston haven?t really spoken to
us.
?We have had a conversation and we
believe they like him.
?I?m not really sure what I can say,

The 20-year-old looked set for a move
to Preston North End, which had
been in the works since the January
transfer window.
Boss Karl Robinson had indicated
he would be leaving Ledson out of his
matchday squad at Blackburn Rovers, admitting last week there was
a ?high possibility? of the move to
Deepdale going ahead.
But the former Everton trainee was
included on the bench at Ewood Park
and clocked up his 50th appearance of
the campaign as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 defeat.

Oxon suffer double
loss in T20 openers
OXFORDSHIRE had
two contrasting defeats
when
they
opened their Unicorns Counties T20
campaign
against
Herefordshire
at
Bicester & North Oxford.
After suffering an agonising two-run loss in the
first match of the doubleheader, the host county
went down by a convincing 65 runs in the second,
taking only one wicket in
the process.
A superb all-round display by Harvey Eltham
could not prevent Oxon
coming up short in the
first clash.
The off-spinner took 3-12
from his four overs to restrict the visitors, who had
chosen to bat first, to just
128-6 from their 20 overs.
This was a small target,
but Oxon soon slumped to

WINDSOR
Today?s runners
Herefordshire won by
65 runs
54-6 in reply.
They were back in the
hunt after a seventh-wicket stand of 55 by Eltham
and Leo Bethell, which
looked like snatching a
dramatic victory.
With five runs to win off
seven balls and three wickets standing, Joe Thomas
was bowled by the last delivery of the 19th over.
Then, from the third ball
of the final over, Eltham
was run out backing up,
having made a superb 50
from 31 balls.
Lawrence Brock was
bowled off the next delivery to leave Oxon all out
for 126 from 19.4 overs.
The second game was
a cakewalk for Herefordshire, who rattled up 203-1,
Matt Pardoe scoring a brilliant 111 not out from 62
balls. The hosts mustered
just 138-9 in reply.
They will be hoping for
better luck in two games
against Shropshire at
Shrewsbury today.

could only finish fourth in
the Nell Gwyn Stakes less
than three weeks ago, but
significantly raised her
game to claim Classic glory.
Fillies? Mile heroine Laurens looked the likely winner when committing for
home early.
But but she was mowed
down late by Billesdon
Brook and had to make do
with the runner-up spot.

Happily, the 11-4 favourite,
was third.
Levey said: ?It?s a massive
shock, to be honest.?
Breaking records has become a habit for trainer
Aidan O?Brien and Saxon
Warrior provided him with
another when giving him
an unprecedented ninth
Qipco 2000 Guineas on Saturday.
It was a landmark victory on more than one front,
as it not only provided the
Ballydoyle master with his
300th Group One success,
but was a first at the same
level for his son, and winning jockey, Donnacha.

Smith claims ?rst Moto GP points of year
BRADLEY Smith was upbeat after
securing his first MotoGP points
of the season with a 13th placedfinish in the Spanish race at
Jerez.
The Oxfordshire rider?s best
finish, which brought him three
points, came a few days after
learning that he has lost his
factory ride for the Red Bull KTM
team to Yamaha star Johann
Zarco next season.
Smith challenged Pol
Espargaro all the way, but
dropped a place on the last bend
after a failed attempt to overtake
his Spanish teammate.
After the race, Smith said: ?It
was a bit of a shame to lose a
place, but I was pleased with my
pace.
?It is nice to see our updated
bike looking strong. It is looking
like the right direction.?

CRICKET HOME COUNTIES PREMIER LEAGUE
Moriarty shines as Rowant
send Oxford to derby loss
ASTON Rowant got their
Division 1 campaign off
to a flying start with a
five-wicket victory away
to Oxford on Saturday.
Star of the show in this derby
clash was South African teenager Dan Moriarty, who collected three wickets and made
a valuable 31 to see the visitors
over the line in a low-scoring
match.
Choosing to bat first, Oxford made a horrendous start,
crashing to 9-5.
Owyn Tong-Jones, Muhammad Ayub and John Barrett
all fell for ducks, while Harvey
Eltham was run out by Tom
Condon for four, while Shami
Mendis fell for one.
Skipper Jamie Perkin led a
counter-attack with an unbeaten 56 off 99 balls.
His only support came from
Connor Kilpatrick, who became the first of three wickets
for left-arm spinner Moriarty
as Oxford were shot out for just
96.
Moriarty finished with 3-23
and seamer Leo Bethell 3-25.
Rowant slipped to 23-3 in reply, but Chris Watling (45) and
Moriarty, put on 67 to help the
IN THOUGHT: Leo Bethell prepares to
deliver another ball for Rowant
visitors to a comfortable victory.
Craig Haupt became the first
batsman to reach 10,000 runs in
the league during Banbury?s
84-run defeat at Henley.
The
left-handed
opener
reached his target during his
innings of 26 in Banbury?s reply of 157 all out to the hosts?
total of 241-8 from 50 overs.
Graham Beer made a promising debut for Banbury with 2-33
in ten overs.
After Haupt and Lloyd Sabin
put on 60 for the first wicket,
Banbury fell away against spinner Gurveer Singh, who took
5-45.
A brilliant unbeaten 97 from
skipper Michael Beard helped
Thame Town to a 24-run victory at Finchampstead.
After the visitors, who chose
to bat first, slumped to 28-4,
Beard dominated the innings.
He took an amazing 27 runs,
including four sixes off the final over to lift them to 210-7
from their allocation.
Finchampstead slipped to
103-7 in reply, but rallied to 1869 by the close, off-spinner Gamindu Kanishka taking 4-23.
Horspath tumbled to a 63-run
defeat at Slough.
Having elected to bowl, Horspath were unable to stop Slough
rattling up 243-6 with Lincolnshire?s Conrad Louth hitting 106 off 127 balls with one
six and eight fours.
Louth shared a stand of 100
for the second wicket with Fahim Qureshi (48) and a partnership of 88 with Shahid Yousaf
(41) for the third.
It looked as if Horspath may
face an even bigger target at
one stage, but a fightback saw
the visitors pick up four late
wickets for ten runs courtesy
of Tom Cosford (2-37) and Darryl Brown (2-45).
Horspath were always struggling after losing opener Robbie
Eason and Tom Coleman with
just 16 on the board.
Mark Skelton (37) top-scored
as they closed on 180-9 to secure
a third batting point.

Shurmer shines in Tew?s low-scoring win
GREAT & Little Tew made a
stunning recovery from 25-5
to record a 24-run victory in
tense Division 2 clash at
home to Burnham.
Narrowly relegated last
season, Tew will be boosted
by this result in their bid to
bounce straight back to the
top flight.
Having been put in to bat,
the host were soon in deep
trouble.
The innings was held
together by Robbie Shurmer,
who hit 52 not out, and he
received good support from
Tom Young (25).
Even so, their total of 115
from 38.4 overs seemed
inadequate.
But Burnham also struggled
in the conditions, with the Tew
bowlers sharing out the
wickets.
Perhaps the decisive factor
were two super run outs by
Curtly Slatter as the visitors
were dismissed for 101 in the
44th over.
Shipton-under-Wychwood
made an inauspicious start to
the new campaign when they
lost by eight wickets away to
Buckingham Town.
Put in to bat, the visitors
were soon struggling at 20-4,
not helped by the running out
of Luke Champion for two.
Charlie Miller tried to lead a
recovery with an aggressive
47 from 56 balls, including
two sixes and six fours.
Scott Harris added some
tail-end resistance, but
Shipton were all out for 125 in
31.2 overs.
The visitors opening attack
of skipper Anupam Sanklecha
and Scott Harris kept it tight
in their ten-over spells, but
once they came off the
floodgates opened and
Buckingham cruised to victory
with nearly 20 overs to spare.

SIMON EASTWOOD
Kept U?s in the game with great penalty
save. BOOKED. MAN OF THE MATCH
TODD KANE
Tough afternoon and was caught out
for the penalty
ROB DICKIE
Did well again. Might United face a
battle to keep him this summer?
CURTIS NELSON
Some important interventions, but
beaten in the air for the first goal
JOSH RUFFELS
Set up the equaliser, but should have
done better with Payne?s goal
JOHN MOUSINHO
Gave the ball away cheaply far too
often in his midfield role
JOE ROTHWELL
Flashes of quality, but little to show for it
on a tough afternoon
CAMERON BRANNAGAN
Good to see him playing further
forward, wasn?t afraid to shoot
JAMES HENRY
Took his goal superbly to finish as
United?s joint top-scorer
MALACHI NAPA
Had a couple of shots blocked, but
was generally outmuscled
JON OBIKA
United needed more from him
as the senior striker
