WEST WAY: Residents? relief as demolition of shopping centre ?nally gets under way Landlord saves
a customer?s life
DEMOLITION
A LANDLORD
whose quickthinking and
first-aid training
helped save a
woman?s life
was honoured
by the
ambulance
service.
Awardwinning
publican Archie Orr-Ewing performed
the heimliche manoeuvre and CPR on
a woman who choked and suffered a
cardiac arrest while dining at The
Swan Inn at Swinbrook.
Mr Orr-Ewing said it is vital that
people have training in first aid
because there?s no telling when it
may be useful.

?WE?RE GLAD TO
SEE BACK OF IT?
AFTER two years of waiting, work has finally begun
on a long-awaited new shopping centre.
Diggers are on site at the West
Way in Botley with demolition of
an old building under way ? the
first sign of action on the site since
Tom
Williams

planning permission was initially
granted in 2016.
Residents have hailed the move
as a day they never thought would
come, with hopes raised that the
beleaguered local area can now be
rejuvenated.
Since planning permission was
granted, many shops have shut
leading to the area becoming full
of boarded up units.
But campaigners have warned
that site owners Botley Development Company and developer
Mace continue to change their
planned scheme with residents
having to suffer the consequences

VOLUNTEERS at the John Radcliffe
?League of Friends? have celebrated a
successful year after fundraising a
record-breaking turnover of more
than �0,000.
Profits from the total have been
awarded to the hospital in grants
which have been used to pay for
nurses, specialist equipment and
counselling services.
The idea is to help ease the
problems facing the NHS including
the cuts to staffing and funding.

pRoyal wedding preacher inspires West Way graf?ti
Like us at
facebook.com/oxfordmail
GRAFFITI inspired by the
Royal wedding has been
used to protest about the
West Way development,
despite work beginning on
site.
A quote from the Bishop
Michael Curry, who presided
over the ceremony on
Saturday, has been sprayed
in large red letters on
hoardings at the shopping
centre.
Covering the boards put up
over the old West Way
Chippy, the site?s last
independent trader which
closed in April, the quote
references the Bishop?s
?love is the way? sermon.
The majority of the other
closed shops have been
painted as part of a
community art project and
have as yet been untouched
by the mystery ?artist?, who
calls themself ?Waldo
Skipsey?.
Despite work finally
beginning in another corner
of the site, Waldo has
continued to rally against
the big shopping centre
redevelopment.
He has previously
compared Botley to a
?dystopia?.

in the long run.
The initial work has seen the
demolition of part of the old Grant
Thornton office building, close to
the Southern Bypass Road.
Existing supermarkets including
Tesco and the Co-op will eventually
temporarily move into this part of
the site while their old units in the
current ?60s shopping centre are demolished.
Jackie Slade, 66, who has lived on
nearby Montagu Road for 35 years,
said: ?My kids grew up here but
have all since moved away.
?They couldn?t believe what had
happened to the place when they
came back, it was really sad.
?It is so nice to see it getting going.
I had to stop and watch and I just
thought ?at last?.
?I am feeling more hopeful than I
have been in a long time.?
She added: ?The whole community has gone for the time being.
?If we get some nice places to eat
and drink, it will bring everyone
back together again.
?I never thought this day would
come ? we were just given another
date and another one and another
one. I?m so happy to see it begin ?
it?s a new start for everybody.?
The �0m project, which will include a hotel, student accommodation and new shops, was first suggested as early as 2012 but has been
hit by a catalogue of problems.
Developers had to redesign the
scheme last year in a bid to satisfy
concerns about entrances to the
site and so it could be completed in
PULLED APART: Demolition work at the West Way; right, Jackie Slade
phases. Mace then said it wanted
to start in the autumn but this
deadline was missed as the terms
of the sale had not been agreed.
Vale of White Horse Council
eventually accepted a �.4m offer in January, �4m less than expected.
In the meantime existing retailers? leases expired leaving the site
deserted and it has been repeatedly targeted with graffiti.
Nicola Horsley, manager at
Jasons Flowers on nearby Elms
Parade, said she was pleased to see
work start but worried too much
damage had been done to the area?s shopping scene.
She said the business was rely-
ing on online sales as fewer customers are now visiting the parade of shops and added: ?I would
like to think the new shops will
be good for us but it will be a long
time coming.
?They had the chance to make
this whole area into more of a
shopping destination but it has
just taken so long.
?A lot of people have decided to
shop elsewhere. We hope it?s not
too late.?
Andy Brock who runs the butchers on the same stretch of shops
said his business was down on
this time last year and he was having to face making a ?big decision?
about whether he could keep go-
ing until the West Way is finished.
In further developments, Vale
council will consider minor
changes to planning permission
on the scheme next Wednesday.
Mary Gill, of West Way Community Concern, said she was concerned that Mace had removed
plans for secure student and employee cycle parking and was
proposing to replace ramps with
steps, raising concerns about access for people in wheelchairs.
She added: ?We are down to the
detail now but we will have to live
with it for however long so we?ve
got to get it right.
?We are not trying to stop the
development, we want it to be as
good as possible. They want to get
going now but it?s worth spending
a little longer thinking about the
consequences.?
Mace was contacted for comment but did not respond.

Owner of ?Britain?s best pub?
saves life of a choking diner
Stuart
Rust
srust@nqo.com
ONE of Britain?s top
pub landlords has been
honoured after saving a
diner from the brink of
death.
When a woman choked
and went into cardiac arrest
while eating at The Swan
Inn, in Swinbrook, Archie
Orr-Ewing fought tooth and
nail to save her.
The landlord, who described having the woman?s
life in his hands, has urged
others to take up first aid
training so that more lives
can be saved.
On Monday, Mr Orr-Ewing
received a letter of commendation from the Director of Operations at South
Central Ambulance Service
NHS Foundation Trust Mark
Ainsworth.
Mr Orr-Ewing, 49, was in
the garden of The Swan Inn
on Thursday, May 3, at about
1pm when a waiter came and
told him a woman was in
trouble in the dining area.
The
dad-of-three
said:
?There was a group of about
six or seven people having
lunch and one of them was
on the floor.
?My immediate thought
was that it was a heart attack
or stroke or something.
?It had suddenly gone from
everything being fine and
dandy to life and death.?
Everybody seemed at a loss
over what action to take,
but Mr Orr-Ewing?s first aid
training came into play.
He lifted the woman up to

Police and council
close drugs ?at
VISITORS have been banned from an
Oxford ?at in the city to protect a vulnerable
resident from being exploited by drug users.
Oxford City Council secured a closure
order against a property in Alice Smith
Square, Littlemore, at Oxford Magistrates?
Court last week.
The resident, an Oxford City Council tenant,
was being ?cuckooed? by drug users.
Cuckooing is a practice where criminals
take over an individual?s home and, against
the will of the resident, use the property for
criminal activity.
The three-month order prevents anyone
from entering the property except from the
resident, support workers and police of?cers.
Expressway ban
STAKEHOLDERS will be updated on
progress to the �n Oxford to Cambridge
Expressway at a conference later today.
Highways England, currently considering
which of three routes the road will take, will
brief representatives from regions along the

But the media has been banned from the

stakeholders were only now meeting for the

Air?eld memorial
LIFESAVING LANDLORD: Archie Orr-Ewing, right, with paramedic Ryan Scott at The Swan Inn in Swinbrook
MESSAGE: Hero Archie Orr-Ewing
urges others to take ?rst aid training
perform the heimliche manoeuvre ? and quickly discovered how training can differ from reality.
Mr Orr-Ewing said: ?When
somebody is unconscious
like that they are a dead
weight. It?s much more gruelling than you think.
?When you do it on a dummy it seems much more
straightforward.
?When you?re in a situation
like that where everyone is
looking at you and you?re not
100 per cent sure what you?re
doing it?s quite a full-on experience.
?I felt like I had her life in
my hands and I had to do
whatever I could to remove
the blockage somehow.?
Mr Orr-Ewing gave the procedure everything he had until he was ?on his knees?. He
then lay the woman on her
back and began performing
CPR and breathing into her
mouth.
The landlord said: ?I
thought we had lost her. I
thought she was dead. But
we must have managed to remove the blockage.?
By the time crews from
South Central Ambulance
Service arrived at the pub
the woman, in her 70s, had a
pulse and was breathing.
Mr Orr-Ewing believes that
she was technically dead for
a period.
He said: ?It goes by in a blur
and it?s not until afterwards
that the shock and trauma
and realisation sets in.
?We were so pleased to hear
the woman had survived.?
By the time the woman had
arrived at hospital her condition was greatly improved.
She has since written to Mr
Orr-Ewing to thank him.
Mr Orr-Ewing and his wife
Nicola own The King?s Head
in Bledington, which was
named Pub of the Year by the
Good Pub Guide last year, as
well as running The Swan
Inn. They have ensured that
staff are trained in first aid.
Mr Orr-Ewing received his
commendation on Monday
from paramedic Ryan Scott,
who was the first responder
at the pub on the day of the
incident.
Shark house application sent for approval
ICON: Headington?s ?shark house?
OXFORD MAIL
AN APPLICATION for
Headington?s famous 25ft
?shark house? to remain in the
skies of the city for future
generations to see was
lodged yesterday with the
Oxford Heritage Asset
Register.
In a supporting letter which
formed part of the application
to nominate the ?Headington
Shark?, group member Cicely
Havely wrote: ?Although the
shark was originally greeted
with suspicion, it is loved by
locals who would be horrified
if anything ever happened to
it.?
She also revealed that, due
to the unique nature of the
fibreglass shark, it was hard
to fit ?easily into the language
of the application form?.
The application form asks
what the nomination is, why it
is interesting and what makes
it a significant value to the
local community through a
series of multiple choice
options.
Now that the application
form has been submitted, it
will be forwarded to Oxford
City Council for consideration
before it can be officially
added to the register to join
the likes of The Rusty Bicycle
in Magdalen Road and the Sir
Roger Bannister running
track in Iffley Road, which
were both added when the
list was created in 2015.
If it is accepted, the
property on New High Street
will not be protected legally,
however the list aims to
influence planning decisions
in favour of a way that will
conserve local character.
Councillor Mohammed
Altaf-Khan said he is
expecting the decision and
result of the application to
take a couple of weeks.

Concerns that
Clean Air report
omits transport
THE city needs more money to tackle
?toxic and illegal? levels of air pollution
following a ?concerning? Government
Clean Air Strategy.
The strategy was announced yesterday
by Environment Secretary Michael Gove
with the aim of halving the number of
people exposed to high levels of air
pollution by 2025.
It includes giving local councils more
powers to limit people using wood-burning
stoves.
But campaigners said the 104-page
report failed to deal with the problem of
NOx emissions from cars.
Oxford City Council, which has proposed
the world?s first Zero Emissions Zone in
2020 and has recently installed electric
car charging points across the city, said it
needed more funding and support to
achieve its ambitious aims.
Board member for safer and greener
environment, Tom Hayes, said: ?We are
pleased that the Government has released
a draft Clean Air Strategy for the UK.
?But at first glance it appears to be light
on detail about how the ?more formal
approach? will work, how local authorities
will be supported to introduce zero
emission zones and how much funding will
be available.
?Others have described the strategy as
having a ?transport-shaped hole?, which,
given about 70 per cent of the air pollution
in Oxford comes from transport, is
concerning.?
Mr Hayes added that the council would
be going through the strategy to
understand how it will impact Oxford
before responding to the consultation.

Bridge discussion
chief steps down
A MAN who has been chairing
negotiations over the proposed
demolition of Steventon?s railway bridge
has stepped down after sharing his view it
should be knocked down.
Stewart Lilly had been overseeing
meetings between those opposed to the
scheme, including Steventon Parish
Council, and Network Rail since shortly
after the official application was submitted
by the rail company in April last year.
Appointed to be an independent
mediator, Mr Lilly, a county councillor for
the area from 2009 until last May, said he
had been ?disappointed? that relations had
broken down in the past five months.
However, he also said that, while he
sympathised with businesses worried
about a 10-month closure of a main route
into Steventon while the Brunel bridge
was replaced with a concrete one, he felt
stopping the demolition would only delay
the inevitable.
He said: ?My fear is the bridge is 181
years old; it isn?t built for the usage it has
now. If, say, a few bricks fell on to the
track, there could be an accident.
?It has been repaired before, I think
around 20 years ago, but that won?t hold
forever.?
He concluded that it would be ?total folly?
for Vale of White Horse District Council to
refuse the application.
Mr Lilly said yesterday he had resigned
as chairman ?because it was the only
honourable thing to do?.
He also stressed that the demolition
decision was ?totally up to? the Vale?s
planning committee.

EXCLUSIVE: Work begins in earnest on the new Soho House motel at Buckland service station on the A420
REMEMBER this scene: next time you look, this
will be Oxfordshire?s most exclusive luxury
motel.
More than a year after planning permission
was granted, work has finally begun in earnest
this month on the latest Soho House venture in
the county.
Taking over a vacant site at the improbable
location of Buckland Services on the A420, the
private members? club is erecting a 79-room
motor hotel and a 132-seat diner.
The Soho House Group, founded by millionaire
entrepreneur Nick Jones, hosts parties for the
likes of Rupert Murdoch, Kate Moss and David
Cameron.
Mr Jones, who lives with his wife Kirsty Young
near Chipping Norton, opened the Soho
Farmhouse country resort in nearby Great Tew in
2016.

morning.
At Buckland, the company is somewhat
re-booting the Chariots and Cherry Pie American
diner briefly run there by Oxfordshire couple
Jonathan and Claire Hilsdon in 2014 before the
business collapsed.
Soho has kept tight-lipped about the scheme,
so it remains unclear whether the motel, diner
and drive-through would be private like the rest
of its operation, or open to locals.
Praise for children?s services
despite increased pressures
Sophie
Grubb
sgrubb@nqo.com
CARE teams tasked with
protecting vulnerable children have coped well with
budget cuts and an influx of
cases, a watchdog has said.
Ofsted released a report yesterday about Oxfordshire County
Council?s children?s services, having assessed the authority?s social
work and support for an increasing number of youngsters in care.
It said financial cutbacks caused
a temporary dip in service quality
but this had since been addressed,
and the vast majority of children
were being well looked-after.
Its report said: ?In 2015-16 a significant rise in demand across
the service, combined with a reduction in resources as part of
council-wide efficiency savings,
led to a decline in quality of some
services, particularly for children
OFSTED: Council given good report but
more must be done to support neglected
in need of help and protection.
Senior leaders have taken rigorous action to respond to this deterioration. Significant additional
financial investment, combined
with a large-scale restructure in
2017, has led to an improved early
help service, increased capacity in
frontline staffing and an enhanced
service for children in care.?
The education and childcare regulator said the council must give
quicker support for children suffering neglect, however.
The report said: ?A small minority of children remain living in unsatisfactory situations for too long.
?A small minority of children experience drift and delay in achieving permanence.?
It also said delay in finding care
placements meant some 17-yearolds were temporarily being put
up in bed and breakfasts, which it
deemed ?unsuitable?.
The number of children in care
in Oxfordshire soared from 500 in
2015 to 700 in 2018, and assessments
of children at risk of neglect rose
from 633 to 918 from 2015 to 2017.
Steve Harrod, the council?s cabinet member for children and family services, said: ?The report acknowledges the positive impact of
service changes to handle the big
increase in cases of abuse and neglect and children entering care.
?Our social workers and other
staff work incredibly hard to keep
children safe and help them get the
best possible start in life.?
He thanked unsung heroes of
the social work field, and said the
council was under ?no illusions? of
challenges that lie ahead.
Ofsted judged the council as
?good? in three of four areas of assessment and ?good? overall, but
?requires improvement? for ?experiences and progress of children
CHALLENGES: Steve Harrod
who need help and protection?.
In its last inspection in 2014 it
was rated ?good? across the board.
Ofsted praised the council for a
?rigorous? multi-agency approach
to reducing risks of sexual exploitation and ?robust? response to
children who go missing.
It said social workers built ?meaningful and important? relationships with children and took on a
?never give up attitude? to adoption
for difficult-to-place children.

Freeview blackout
COTSWOLD Wildlife park is welcoming a
fitting new arrival just days away from
celebrating Lemur Week.
The zoological park, in West
Oxfordshire, has officially unveiled the
latest arrival to the park ? a collared
lemur.
The primate team announced the birth
yesterday after the young lemur was
born last month to parents Anais and
Varika.
Visitors can now see the youngster in
the Madagascar exhibit where he is
currently clinging to his mum for the first
few months of his life.
Natalie Horner, deputy section head of
primates at the park, said: ?On May 5 we
discovered that our female collared
lemur, Anais, had given birth that very
morning.
?Anais is an experienced mum so did
brilliantly during the delivery and was
already cleaning the baby up ready for
its first feed.
?Lemur babies only weigh around 80g
when first born but are able to cling to
their mum?s fur and clamber around to
find the best feeding position.?
The keepers are currently just
observing the animals but allow the
baby?s development up to its mum and
just check they are bonding well.
The baby lemur is yet to be named but
visitors will be able to vote for a name,
and get stuck into activities, during
Lemur Week next week.
The youngster is currently spending its
days feeding and sleeping while clinging
on to its mum, before it will start to gain
independence in a few months time.
Ten years ago the park?s lemur exhibit,
Madagascar, was unveiled and was the
brainchild of Jamie Craig, curator of the
park.
He said: ?It is great to have a birth in
the group. Most lemurs live in small
family groups so it is nice to see their
interaction when there is a new arrival.
?Babies are always a fantastic thing to
have around the park, its great for us
and the visitors.?
Hospital volunteers raise a recordbreaking half a million in one year

VOLUNTEERS at Oxford?s John Radcliffe
Hospital have raised a
record-breaking half a
million pounds in one
year to help fund staff
and equipment.
The money which has been
made from the two cafes
run by volunteers in the JR
will fund nursing staff, ultrasound scanners and the
provision of specialist counselling services for parents
suffering from a loss or trauma during pregnancy.
The sterling work comes
amid ongoing fears about
funding and staffing problems facing the NHS.
The volunteers from the
John Radcliffe League of
Friends run the cafes in the
hospital?s main site and the
Women?s Centre.
The profits made from the
sale of foodie favourites are
then returned to the hospital
via grants to different wards
and departments.
In the 2017/18 financial
year, the Friends raised a
record-breaking �3,908, allowed them to donate more
than �0,000 in 39 grants,
setting an additional record
for donations to the hospital
in one year.
Those donations mean that
the hospital can now fund
staff and specialist equipment.
Volunteers at the cafes,
which have both been awarded five star food hygiene ratings by Oxford City Council,
serve roughly 700 customers
per day.
Chairman of the League
of Friends grant committee
Ruth Greves said: ?We are
thrilled to have hit this incredible milestone of turning over more than half a
million pounds.
?Our volunteers work incredibly hard and provide
such a special service to the
hospital, so to see all that
hard work paying off is wonderful.
?It?s great to know that all
those sandwiches and cups
of tea have such an impact
allowing us to purchase specialist medical equipment
and support staff projects
across the hospital.?
A chief nurse at the OUH,
Sam Foster, said: ?We are
thrilled to hear that the John
Radcliffe League of Friends
has had such a successful
year and extend our thanks
to all the volunteers.?

travel chaos,
study finds
TRANSPORT chaos and extreme weather
conditions have caused people?s moods
to drop over the past six months, an
Oxford-based study has found.
Global forecasting and analysis firm
Oxford Economics conducted a survey of
more than 8,000 people as part of
Sainsbury?s Living Well Index.
The research also found financial
worries were bringing the nation?s mood
down, with one in four parents feeling
?intensely worried? about money
compared with one in five just six months
ago.
Key to the findings was the importance
of social interaction, as over half of those
with the highest scores saw friends
several times a week whereas those at the
bottom did so once a month or less.
Factors that got in the way of quality
time with loved ones, such as delayed
trains and bad weather conditions, were
behind the mood across the country.
Winter months are particularly to blame,
as the cold and unpredictable weather
meant more of us had less time for faceto-face interactions.
The director of consulting at Oxford
Economics, Ian Mulheirn ? the project?s
lead researcher ? said: ?It stands to
reason that we all feel happier in the
summer months, but the analysis
suggests this is partly because we
socialise more and spend more time
outside, which we?re less able to do in
winter. And in an age of unprecedented
digital distraction, it appears that real,
human connections are far more
beneficial to our well-being than the
connections we make online.?
City council hiring
new apprentices
YOUNG people are being given the
opportunity to take up a number of
apprenticeships at Oxford City Council.
The local authority is recruiting for its
next apprenticeship programme and is
accepting applications until Thursday,
June 21.
The council?s website said: ?We aim to
have a workforce that represents our
great city and are keen to hear from
people living locally who have an appetite
to learn, and want to help us deliver
excellent services to our community.?
There are entry level roles and higher
level trainee roles available. These include
the roles of intelligence support
apprentice, incomes apprentice, human
resources apprentice, business support
apprentice and youth work apprentice.
Interviews and selection will take place
over the summer and successful
applicants will start in September. To find
out more there are drop-in sessions at a
number of venues.
These include Rose Hill Community
Centre tomorrow from 3pm to 5pm, East
Oxford Community Centre on Tuesday
from 3pm to 5pm, St Aldate?s Customer
Service Centre on Thursday, May 31, from
1pm to 5pm, and at Blackbird Leys
Community Centre on Thursday, June 7,
from 3pm to 5pm.
GOOD CAUSE: Tattooist Carly Foster works on one of the designs
A TATTOO studio in Abingdon
opened its doors at the weekend to
raise money for local good causes.
Customers were queuing out of
the door on Saturday at Acreedo
Tattoo and Body Piercings, which
held a drop-in event that
encouraged people to turn up from
10am until 6pm without an
appointment.
There were a set of designs,
many of which featured charity
logos, to choose from for those
eager to get inked for a good
cause, with a minimum donation of
� per tattoo.
Money was also raised with a
raffle, which featured prizes
including the chance to win a half
day or full day of studio time with
Picture: Richard Cave
one of the High Street shop?s
trained tattooists.
The charities chosen for the
event, which last year raised
almost �000, were Oxfordshire
Mind and premature babies charity
SSNAP, based at the John Radcliffe
Hospital. Representatives were
also on hand throughout the day to
talk about each charity?s work.
Designs included Mind?s navy
blue squiggle and SSNAP?s baby
held by two hands.
The event was started two years
ago after owners Colin and Bella
Morton came up with the quirky
fundraising idea while on holiday in
Thailand and were inspired by the
poverty they saw to do something
for charity.
Brookes university criticised after failing
to pay nearly 700 staff �75 living wage
A LOCAL MP has criticised
Oxford Brookes University
following revelations that
it pays nearly 700 staff less
than a living wage.
According to data obtained under the Freedom of Information
Act, 699 employees are not paid
�75 an hour ? the rate deemed
necessary to live on.
Anneliese Dodds, the MP for Oxford East, said: ?I am disappointed
that up to 700 employees at Oxford
Brookes do not get paid the living
wage, and hope that steps are being taken to address this by the
university?s leadership.?
There is some dispute over what
constitutes a ?living wage?: the
Government introduced a ?national living wage? in 2016, which now
stands at �83 an hour for over25s. However, the Living Wage
Foundation calculates that �75 is
required to pay for life?s essentials
outside of London.
Harrison
Jones
hjones@nqo.com
There is also an ?Oxford Living
Wage?, which the city council calculates as being �69 an hour.
Ms Dodds, who urged employers across the city to pay the Oxford rate, added: ?It is not only fair
that employees earn a wage that
meets the high cost of living in
Oxford, but evidence from the Living Wage Foundation shows that
paying a living wage increases the
retention and motivation of employees. Fair pay is good for society and good for business.?
The bulk of Brookes? 699 staff
getting less than a living wage
are 555 student ambassadors, who
have no regular hours and are
paid �99 an hour.
?Less than five? first aiders are
?DISAPPOINTING?: Brookes pay some
staff less than �75 an hour
paid �73 an hour and also have
no regular hours. They are paid
the same as eight ?paper fillers?.
The vice-chancellor is paid close
to �0,000 a year.
Of the 699 staff, only 23-31 have
regular hours. Where there are
one to five people working in a
particular job, the university does
not specify the exact number to
avoid identifying individuals.
Of those with regular hours, 16
interns are paid �31 an hour for
a 37-hour week.
A Brookes spokesperson said:
?The university pays all of its employees at least the National Living Wage.
?The vast majority of those staff
who are paid an hourly rate between the National Living Wage
and the voluntary rate set by the
Living Wage Foundation are students employed on a casual basis,
often to fit around studies and other work commitments.
?The university will continue to
keep this approach under review.?
Oxford City Council leader Susan Brown said: ?The high cost of
living means that we have set our
own Oxford Living Wage, [95 per
cent of the London Living Wage].
?We are working with local partners and the Living Wage Foundation to understand local barriers
to fair pay, and promote Oxford as
a Living Wage City.?

Coroner critical of courts after
tragic toll on abuse case victim
George
Gaynor
news@nqo.com
A SCHOOL caretaker,
who recognised a newspaper picture of a sex
attacker as the man
who abused him as a
child, killed himself
soon after giving evidence in court.
Jeff Harris lived with the
aftermath of abuse by his
neighbour, Terry Haynes ?
known as Rev Haynes ? for
more than 40 years, before
seeing a mugshot of a convicted paedophile and realising he was the man who had
molested him.
Mr Harris, 56, of Radley,
calle police and Haynes, in
jail for the sex assaults, was
charged with the new crimes.
However, giving evidence
in a crown court about what
happened to him as a child
caused him to spiral into depression and he hanged himself at home in Sycamore
Crescent three months later.
Oxford Coroner?s Court
heard yesterday that he was
not given the support a child
victim would have received,
leading the coroner to criticise the crown court system.
Mr Harris, a caretaker at St
Swithun?s School in Kennington, was found by his wife,
Elaine, when she returned
from work on February 2.
She also discovered a note
saying simply: ?I?m so sorry.?
?I?M SO SORRY?: Jeff Harris, left, wrote a suicide note to his wife before
taking his life, three months after giving evidence against Terry Haynes, right
WITNESS SUICIDE: ?He was made
to stand in box ... made out to be liar?
Haynes, formerly of Matthews Way, Wootton, was sentenced to 15 years in prison
at the age of 71 in 2014, after
being found guilty at Oxford
Crown Court of 12 counts of
rape, 11 of indecent assault
and one attempted rape.
Among his victims was his
daughter, Teresa Haynes,
who waived her anonymity.
When Mr Harris saw reports of that case, he contacted police. Following a trial
at Reading Crown Court in
2017, Haynes was convicted
of gross indecency with a
boy and eight counts of indecent assault on a boy.
Haynes was handed a further six years in prison, to
run consecutively with the
time he was already serving.
However, yesterday?s in-
quest heard the case sent
Mr Harris into a downward
spiral of depression ? from
which he had previously suffered ? and, three months later, he hanged himself.
Claire Serle, a manager at
St Swithun?s, told the inquest
about the effect she saw the
case have on him.
She said: ?He was made to
stand in the witness box and
was made out to be liar; the
barrister ripped him to pieces.
?Jeff said that if he was a
child he would have had support, but as he was an adult
he did not get this.
?His wife knew, but I don?t
know if she knew everything. I think the court case
was the start of the decline.
?He was having sessions
with a counsellor and these
went okay, but he and the
counsellor
acknowledged
that it would take a while to
get better.?
Ms Serle was due to call
Mr Harris the day he killed
himself, but the first time she
rang he said it was not a good
time. Afterwards, she could
not get through until a paramedic answered later that afternoon.
His wife of 28 years, giving
evidence in a statement, said:
?He had been sent off work
for 21 days, due to depression. He was in the process
of getting help but had been
told it would take longer than
five to six weeks.
?I returned home at 2pm
and when I tried the front
door it was locked, so I went
for the spare key.?
She described how she
found her husband hanging.
Asistant coroner Rosamund Rhodes-Kemp said it was
a shame the court process
did not offer Mr Harris more
support.
She said: ?It is very regrettable that, with the court process, someone in this position is not supported. Going
through these events, even
if not being cross-examined,
of course makes you relive
them.
?I am very sorry indeed he
was not offered any support.
I think it has raised a significant issue that someone with
this issue was left without
support.?
The coroner gave a conclusion of suicide by hanging.

Council issues
a reminder
over recycling
old furniture
RESIDENTS are being reminded they can
recycle any broken or damaged hard
plastic garden furniture.
County council waste strategy officers
say the broken or disused items can be
recycled into a wide range of new
products.
All household waste and recycling
centres are open from 8am to 5pm seven
days a week but until 8pm on Thursdays
between April and September.
Waste strategy officer Rachel Burns said:
?The weekend saw a lot of us checking
our garden furniture before the cup final
or a royal wedding BBQ.
?Almost inevitably a lot of us found a
chair or table had suffered over winter and
was no longer fit for use, or that hard
plastic outdoor toys were past their use-by
date.
?Now when you take them to one of our
seven tips around the county they can go
off to be recycled into a huge range of
products from new garden tables and
chairs to children?s school rulers.
?But they must be made completely of
plastic, we can?t accept items with metal
components.?
Ms Burns is advising residents that one
of the best times to visit is late opening on
Thursdays or before 10am or after 3pm on
other days when the recycling centres are
less busy.
She added: ?You don?t want to waste
your weekend queueing at the tip.?
You can apply online for a free e-permit
to use a van or trailer at the waste
recycling centres.

RIVERSIDE SCHEME: A new widened path for cyclists and pedestrians is being created along the Thames Towpath but residents are concerned that too much vegetation is being cut
back, including a section of the path near Donnington Bridge

Call for vegetation along the
Thames path to be protected
Andy

affrench@nqo.com
A SEMI-RETIRED carer is
urging county council contractors to leave vegetation
in place when they create a
new widened cycle track.
Sylvia Barker, 74, who lives in
South Oxford, said she was concerned that greenery along the
Thames towpath was being cut
back to make way for the new facilities.
After spotting vegetation cleared
near Donnington Bridge she urged
contractors to take care when laying the cycle path in other parts of
the city.
Mum-of-two Mrs Barker, who
works part-time for Cutteslowe
Community Association, said:
?I?m really upset by this because
CUTBACKS: Resident wants greenery to
stay as work to widen cycle track continues
it?s stripping the character of the
river away.
?I would like to request that the
plans which are under way to remove the trees, bushes and grass
verges that grow along the towpath as far as the Old Gasworks
bridge be halted until the pedestrians and ramblers who use the towpath are consulted.
?The plan is to replace the environmentally-friendly stretch of
the riverbank with a three-metre
wide cycle track.
?I?m not against cyclists ? I used
to be one myself ? but this plan
will rid the whole length of the riverbank of everything that makes
this stretch of the river such a
pleasant and environmentallyfriendly area.?
Ms Barker described the river-
bank as ?a green oasis?. She added:
?It?s a place where people, residents and tourists alike, who want
to get away from the city can relax,
enjoy the scenery and admire the
wildlife.
?All manner of birds, bats and
small creatures such as water
voles live in the present lush green
habitat.?
Oxfordshire County Council
spokesman Martin Crabtree said
work on the first section of the
towpath, from Donnington Bridge
to Folly Bridge, would be completed by about June 13.
The next section of works, from
Folly Bridge to Gasworks Bridge,
is due to start on Monday, June
4, and is expected to last for up to
seven weeks.
He added: ?The ?Riverside route
CONCERNS: Vegetation needs to be
protected say residents
to city centre? scheme aims to improve off-road pedestrian and cycle links between residential areas
and Oxford city centre.
?The towpath can be used by
both cyclists and pedestrians.
?The work we are doing will
make it easier for both to share
the route in safety by widening the
path where possible. We have listened to feedback from people relating to vegetation.?
Airbase welcomes 70th celebration of the Land Rover
IT HAS been 70 years since the iconic Land
Rover was introduced into the automotive world
and Bicester Heritage is marking the occasion
this weekend.
The former Second World War bomber station
is playing host to an event called Land Rover
Legends.
The event will see scores of Land Rovers from
years gone by, as well as those up to the
present day, fill the former RAF Bicester site to
celebrate the anniversary.
Among the exhibitions will be one of the three
Land Rover prototype vehicles ? the L03.
The L03 was driven from London to
Amsterdam by a young Ernie Bacon, son the
then manager of Rover Company?s London
depot at Seagrave Road in Fulham.
The L03 was ?despatched out? of Seagrave
Road by Mr Bacon on Tuesday, April 27, 1948,
and driven to Amsterdam by a young Ernie to
join the Rover Company showcase launching
the brand to the world seven decades ago.
Organisers said: ?L03 is clearly steeped in
Land Rover history, and through the 1950s and
60s changed hands a couple of times before
being bought in 1974 by the current owner.
?Lovingly maintained and restored, the vehicle
has participated in every major Land Rover
milestone since ? with a number of television
appearances under its belt over the decades.?
The event will run on both days from 10am
through to 6pm.
Tickets are � in advance for a one day
ticket, or � on the gate which is cash only.

?Pavements solution could kill
historic market town?s image?
Stuart
Rust
srust@nqo.com
A SOLUTION to Witney?s
?lethal? pavements could
improve safety but ruin
the historic market town?s
visual appeal, councillors
have warned.
Town councillors recently
discussed Oxfordshire County
Council?s plans to provide a permanent fix to the pavements in
the town centre ? but now there
are fears the county will simply
replace the slabs with Tarmac.
Witney?s paving has been causing problems for years, with elderly residents falling and injuring themselves as a result of
broken or loose slabs.
Earlier this month, the Oxford
Mail revealed the county council
was planning to deliver a longterm plan to avoid future problems.
However, suggestions that the
county could simply replace the
slabs with Tarmac has been criticised for its potential to damage
the town?s visual appeal.
Town leader Dean Temple said:
?The plans we saw included a
massive strip that doesn?t have
pavement slabs so that?s slightly
worrying.
?While replacing the slabs is a
good idea, what they?ve proposed
to replace them with doesn?t
seem appealing at all.
?Witney is a beautiful town
with many listed building so basic Tarmac really wouldn?t look
right.
?Personally I think they need
to look at the plan again.?

TARMAC: County council aiming to strike
balance between safety and visual appeal
Mr Temple said the county
council was testing the waters
with its proposal.
He said the plans had been
passed on to the traffic advisory
committee, which will meet to
discuss the issue on June 15.
Councillor Peter Dorward
raised similar concerns about
the visual impact of the plans.
He said: ?In principle I support
it.
?The flagstones have been an
issue for many years.
?I?ve lived here since the early 1980s and they were an issue
then.
?The problem with just laying
down Tarmac is that Tarmac is
not easy to look at.
?Ultimately we need to make
sure that that it looks right and
is safe.?
New mayor Brenda Churchill also noted that, as somebody
who uses a disability scooter,
Tarmac was not necessarily easier to traverse on wheels.
She said: ?I would hate to think
we?ll start having problems with
potholes in pavements as well as
on the roads.?
Alan Beames suggested using
the same kind of material used
to create the flecked pavements
in Corn Street.
It was last year that the county council first said that paving
slabs could be removed completely to make the centre of
Witney safer for pedestrians.
?It said repairs had to be made
in the area consistently and
claimed vehicles owned by market traders were responsible for
much of the damage.
Dorothy Holloway, of Minster
Lovell, who has suffered several falls in the town herself, appeared in the Oxford Mail earlier this month after raising the
issue with MP Robert Courts.

Mother convicted of forcing teenage daughter to marry
Marks & Spencer will
close over 100 stores
MARKS & Spencer is to close more than
100 stores by 2022 as it accelerates a
transformation programme that will see
thousands of jobs put at risk.
The closures will affect its clothing and
home stores.
M&S named 14 stores earmarked for
closure on Tuesday, including in London?s
Bayswater and Holloway Road, with a total of
872 employees affected.
The move is part of a ?ve-year turnaround
plan spearheaded by chairman Archie
Norman and chief executive Steve Rowe.
They have been seeking to save costs
through store closures and shutting
distribution centres as part of a wide-ranging
ef?ciency drive as the company?s ?nancial
performance deteriorates.
A MOTHER has been convicted of duping her
teenage daughter into going to Pakistan and
forcing her to marry, in the ?rst successful
prosecution of its type.
The woman was found guilty following a trial at
Birmingham Crown Court, where a jury heard how
the victim had sobbed as she was married to a
male relative 16 years her senior.
Years earlier, the man had taken the girl?s virginity
after a marriage contract was entered into against
the girl?s will.
The then 13-year-old had to undergo an abortion
on returning to the UK, with her GP reporting his
concerns to social services.
It is the ?rst time a forced marriage case of this
kind has been successfully prosecuted in a
criminal court in England.
Jurors heard how as the girl had approached her
18th birthday, she was tricked by her mother into
going to Pakistan on what she believed was a
family holiday. The mother, who cannot be named
for legal reasons to protect the identity of the
victim, was convicted of deceiving the victim into
going to Pakistan, in order to enter into a false
marriage, forced marriage and perjury, after she
later lied about the incident in the High Court.
Giving evidence during the trial, the girl told how
wedding preparations went ahead despite her
objections.
The couple were married in September 2016,
after she had celebrated her 18th birthday.
The defendant was remanded in custody for
sentencing today.

JAILED MUM
Temporary release bid
MINISTERS are pressing authorities in
Tehran to grant temporary release to a British
woman jailed in Iran so she can celebrate
her daughter?s fourth birthday.
Middle East minister Alistair Burt said the
Government was doing everything it can to
bring about Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe?s
release, including asking for a ?temporary
furlough? so she can see her family.
Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 39, a mother of one
who was jailed in 2016 after being convicted
of spying, appeared in court on Saturday
accused of spreading propaganda against
Tehran?s hardline Islamist regime.
SECURITY
Cocaine use growing
THE UK ?is fast becoming the biggest
consumer of cocaine in Europe?, the security
minister has said.
Ben Wallace?s comments came as MPs
debated the Government?s serious violence
strategy, with Mr Wallace saying he wished he
had more money amid concerns from Labour
MPs over police cuts.
Leading the debate, Mr Wallace said
smartphones and encryption had given
young people the opportunity to trade drugs,
communicate in a safe space and make
connections between groups in a way that
never happened before.

Moving service remembers 22
victims of arena terror attack
THE 22 people who lost their
lives in the Manchester Arena atrocity have been remembered at an emotional
national
commemoration
service to mark its first anniversary.
Some 800 people attended the
hour-long service at Manchester
Cathedral including families or
friends of the victims and also survivors of the May 22 terror attack.
They were joined by frontline
responders and volunteers who
helped in the tragic aftermath
of the end of last year?s Ariana
Grande concert.
Among the dignitaries who were
present yesterday were the Duke
of Cambridge, Prime Minister
Theresa May, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, First Minister
of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon, Lib
Dem leader Sir Vince Cable, Greater Manchester Chief Constable
Ian Hopkins, Greater Manchester
Mayor Andy Burnham and Sir
Richard Leese, the leader of Manchester City Council.
A one-minute silence ? observed
nationwide ? was held at 2.30pm
with tears inside the cathedral
and outside, where thousands
watched on a big screen in nearby
Cathedral Gardens.
Photographs of those who died
in the bombing were displayed on
screens in the cathedral shortly
before the silence.
Twenty-two lit candles on the
altar represented each one of the
victims, which were made using
wax from the thousands of candles left in St Ann?s Square in their
memory last May.
A larger single lit candle remembered bereaved families and
friends, the hundreds who were
physically or psychologically
injured and their families and
friends, those who helped on the
night and those who have assisted
or supported the community in
their recovery.
Officiating the service, the Dean
of Manchester, the Very Rev Rogers Govender, said: ?In this service we come together as people
of different faiths and none, as
we remember with love before
God those whose lives were lost,
and those whose lives have been
changed forever and have to live
with the terrible memories of that
day 12 months ago.
?There is a land of the living and
a land of the dead, and the bridge
between them is love, the only survival, the only meaning.?
He added: ?Everyone was loved
so very dearly by people who are
here today as well as by those who
are not.
?They will live on through those
who love them... Those lost and
their loved ones will forever be in
the hearts of the people of Manchester.?
In an address, the Bishop of Manchester, the Rt Rev David Walker,
said: ?This cathedral is here, Manchester is here and you who were
hurt or bereaved 12 months ago
today are forever part of Manchester and forever part of us.?
William gave a bible reading, The
Gift Of Love, and readings were
also given by George Herbert, a
student at Chetham?s School of
Music, Remsha Asif, a student at
Whalley Range High School for
Girls, Michelle Milner, deputy director of nursing at Royal Man-
DIGNITARIES: Greater Manchester Mayor

with members of the Hindi, Muslim, Sikh and Jewish communities.
The final blessing was given by
the Archbishop of York, the Most
Rev Dr John Sentamu, before the
service was drawn to a close by the
national anthem. The order of service listed the 22 names of those
who lost their lives with the heading ?In our hearts forever?.
Members of the public also

Housebuilders? skydive sees

Care home visitors
THRILL-SEEKING hospice
supporters who toppled
13,000 feet through the
sky have smashed their
fundraising target.
A team of colleagues at Taylor
Wimpey hoped to raise �500
for Helen & Douglas House with
a skydive, but have more than
quadrupled that sum thanks to
the generosity of supporters.
Sixteen members of the housebuilder?s Oxfordshire team,
based in Abingdon, hurtled
through the air at the end of
March for the children?s hospice?s skydive event.
They have now announced
their joint fundraising total as
�,037, which will support the
cash-strapped charity?s work
caring for children and young
people with life-limiting illness.
Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire?s
managing director Mark Edmonds said: ?This is the second
year we?ve supported Helen &
Douglas House, and we are well
aware of the great work they do
to help children and young people across our region.
?The charity clearly means
a lot to our staff and it?s been
great to see them working together and encouraging friends
and family to donate.?
He said he was ?incredibly
proud? of the team?s efforts and
more fundraising events were
planned for the future.

SCHOOLCHILDREN have been sharing
stories with care home residents in Yarnton.
This term pupils at William Fletcher Primary
School have regularly visited nearby Yarnton
Residential and Nursing Home, as part of
lessons in respecting other people.
The school?s headteacher wrote in a
newsletter last week: ?Residents are always
very welcoming and interested to hear what
children have to say and what they have been
doing at school.
?Children have also been very interested
listening to residents reminisce about their
own school days.?
?Sinkhole? repairs
A DIP in a road on Oxford?s Rose Hill estate,
described as ?like a mini sinkhole?, is due to

Oxfordshire County Council has said the
defect in Hillsborough Road will be repaired
after someone reported it via the FixMyStreet
site.

I was told in the future that my
child was terminally ill.
?All I do know is that your
world must begin to fall apart in
that one moment ? the terrifying
thought that you will be losing
your everything.
?So really my fear of jumping
out of a plane is pretty small in
comparison.?
Imogen O?Malley, who also
took part in the skydive, posted
on her JustGiving page thank-
ing people who donated. She described the jump as an ?incredible experience?.
Helen & Douglas House organised the skydive at Hinton
Airfield, near Brackley, inviting
supporters to take part and gain
sponsorship money.
Nicola Wilson, corporate business development manager at
the East Oxford hospice, said she
was delighted Taylor Wimpey
entered such a large team.
She added: ?The money they
raised will make a huge difference to the lives of local terminally-ill children to ensure they
live life to the full and parents
can create happy memories during their short time together.
?On behalf of our families,
we would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who
bravely jumped out of a plane to
raise money.?
The hospice in Magdalen Road
is set to close Douglas House,
home to its adult services, in August due to lack of funds.

Start of building
work restores
hope to many
?AT LAST? will be a feeling shared by many
on hearing the news that work has ?nally
begun on the new West Way in Botley.
Residents have been waiting for so long
for any sign of action that seeing workers on
site has been greeted with a sense of almost
disbelief.
For too long they have watched treasured
shops close, leaving nothing but empty units
in their place and decimating the sense of
community in the area.
But seeing work begin on the site has
already begun to rejuvenate people and ?ll
them with a hope that has not been felt for
a long time.
The rallying cry of protestors up to this
point as been ?just get on with it? and now
they may ?nally feel like they are being
listened to.
We hope that the remaining nearby
retailers will be able to ride on this wave
of increased optimism, providing a muchneeded boost for those who have for so
long had to put up with the problems on
site.
Issues will still have to be ironed out
over the coming months and we applaud
those who continue to scrutinise all that is
planned.
For now, it is worth celebrating that this
particularly damaging period in Botley?s
recent history appears to ?nally be over.
Hospital volunteers
true friends indeed
AS warnings of the NHS funding crisis have
reached deafening pitch in recent years,
we have also seen growing coverage of
protest marches, picket lines and petitions
demanding more money.
It?s easy to forget that here in Oxford for
the past 40 years, the John Radcliffe League
of Friends have been quietly volunteering
week in, week out, to raise extra cash for
our beloved hospital.
They don?t shout about it ? in fact
sometimes we wish they would shout a bit
more! ? they just get on with it.
We sincerely hope they carry on doing so
for another 40 years.

Luke impresses new bosses
after landing collegiate job
Fran
Way
fway@nqo.com
A 21-YEAR-OLD who has
Asperger?s syndrome has
found a new lease of independence thanks to an
Oxfordshire
employment
scheme which helps the
vulnerable get into paid employment.
As part of Asperger?s distinctive
nature, somebody with the condition may face difficulties in socialising and non-verbal communication such as eye contact and
reading body language.
Luke Parsons, who is diagnosed
with the condition, said that prior
to getting his current job through
Oxfordshire Employment, he did
not speak much and spent a lot of
his time at home sitting watching
television or playing on his games
console.
Oxfordshire Employment is an
initiative set up by the county
council with the aim of helping to
support people with disabilities to
work.
The scheme is funded to help offer support to anybody who has
barriers getting a job.
Teams of employment advisors
work across the county to help the
people who have joined the scheme
develop key work skills, seek employment and get paid work.
Mr Parsons is part of the scheme
and initially found a position
working in a school kitchen, as
part of an internship scheme that
the service offers.
Since September 2017, the Kidlington resident has been working in the kitchens at Pembroke
College, which is part of Oxford
University and boasts notable
alumni such as politician Michael
Heseltine and ex-master Roger
Bannister.
Mr Parsons said: ?I didn?t speak
much before, but I do now ? we all
get along at work and we have a
great laugh.
?I must admit I?d never heard of
Pembroke College before I came to
work here. The staff are all friendly and help me a lot.
?It?s a great place.?
He added: ?Before I came to
work here I?d spend a lot of time
at home sitting watching TV or on
my Xbox.
?Now I feel much more independent and confident.
?I work shifts. Sometimes it can
be 8am to 4pm, other times 12pm
Before I came to
work here I?d spend
a lot of time at home
sitting watching TV
or on my Xbox. Now
I feel much more
independent and
con?dent
?GREAT PLACE TO WORK?: Luke Parsons, top, has found his niche at Pembroke College, above, where the late Sir Roger Bannister,
below, was once master
College pictures: Andrew Shiva Wikipedia and David Smith
WORK SCHEME: Council work service
helps the vulnerable ?nd paid employment
until 9pm or 2pm to 10pm.
?I am enjoying my work and I
know my mum and family are
proud of me.?
Mr Parsons? employment advisor from Oxfordshire Employment, Gary Peacock, works with
Mr Parsons closely and said:
?Luke passed his probationary period and is doing well.
?His horizons have been broadened and you can see the difference in him.
?When I started to work with
him there was a chance his family
was going to have to uproot from
Kidlington to elsewhere in Oxfordshire, it was a very uncertain time
for him.
?He?d have been moving away
from everything he knew and a
pending paid job.
?I helped the family with a supporting statement, to assist their
housing claim to make the case for
staying in the area.
?Luke is a great example of the
type of work we do at Oxfordshire
Employment and it?s wonderful
that an organisation with a global
profile like Oxford University is involved with us and has done such a
good job working with Luke.?
He added: ?It goes against the stereotype some people might have
of the university somehow being
aloof.
?Our experience while working
with everyone at Pembroke College has been the total opposite.
?The staff I have worked with
at Pembroke College have a great
ethos for encouraging, supporting
and enriching the learning experience at work.?
?It?s not just the university. We
have built up long term relationships with many local employers,
who employ people that we have
introduced and supported.?
In the past year, Oxfordshire Employment helped 41 people with a
disability or health condition get
paid employment.
Pembroke College head of catering Kevin Dudley said that Mr Parsons had quickly proved himself
as a ?committed and valued member of the team?.
He said: ?Having worked with
Luke, and Oxfordshire Employment, to help him settle in to our
kitchen, we are delighted with
the contribution which he now
makes.?

Chairman raises record-breaking funds
Naomi
Herring
These
organisations
and the people
who donate
their time to
them are the
unsung heroes
of our society
nherring@nqo.com
FIVE charities will be
given a boost thanks
to a record-breaking
year of fundraising
from Cherwell District Council chairman Maurice Billington.
In his role as council
chairman, Mr Billington
has hosted a number of
events to raise an impressive �,000 ? the highest
fundraising amount ever
raised by a council chairman in Cherwell.
Mr Billington was council chairman from May
2017 to May 2018.
Causes that will benefit
from the councillor?s fundraising feat include Girl
Guiding Kidlington, The
Salvation Army, Kidlington District Information
Centre, Daybreak Oxford
and Cherwell Counselling
Mr
Billington
said:
?From the counselling services that helped me overcome depression to Daybreak Oxford, which cared
BOOST: Maurice Billington handing over the share of �,000 to Kidlington Girl Guides
for my father as he battled
dementia ? each of these
charities has played a special part in my life and I am
delighted to be in the position to repay that kindness.
?It has been an honour to
serve as the chairman for
the past 12 months and I
am proud to have been able
to use this role to raise so
much money for so many
fantastic causes whilst
also helping to raise their
profile.
?These
organisations
and the people who donate
their time to them are the
unsung heroes of our society and it is a privilege to
give them the recognition
they deserve but never
seek.?
Some of the fundraising
events which helped get
Mr Billington to his �,000
were dinners and raffles
raising an impressive
�,600 plus match funding
helping to boost it further.
Cheques were handed
over to the charities at a
council meeting on Tuesday, May 15, at which Mr
Billington was also voted
in to stay on as chairman
following the sudden death
of vice-chairwoman Jolanta Lis in April.
The council also paid
tribute with a minutes silence at the meeting to Ms
Lis who was due to take
over from Mr Billington as
Cherwell District Council
chairwoman.
As a result, Mr Billington
was elected to stand for a
further 12 months as chairman and David Hughes
was elected as vice chairman of the council.
Mr Billington pledged to
make Ms Lis proud during his second year and
went on to name Kidlington Youth Football, Garden
City Football Club, Evans
Lane FC and the St John?s
Hall Children?s Centre in
Kidlington as his charities
for the next 12 months.
Wild sounds set for
city nature festival
OXFORD?S newest record label will host a
stage of live music at a city centre festival
celebrating nature.
Upcycled Sounds, which launched earlier
this month, has organised artists to perform
at Wild Fair, part of the Oxford Festival of
Nature at the Oxford Museum of Natural
History.
In front of the Pitt Rivers Museum, several of
the label?s artists will take to the stage
throughout the day.
The event takes place on Saturday, June 2
from 10am to 4pm and is organised by Berks,
Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust in support of its
Wild Oxford project.

Pilot gets award
for saving lives
of student crew
AN RAF Benson pilot was ?honoured? to
receive the Air Force Cross as part of the
Operational Honours and Awards List.
Flight Lieutenant Ben Wallis was on
exchange as an instructor with the Royal
Danish Air Force (RDAF) when he had to
take control of an aircraft after an engine
malfunction ? potentially saving the lives
of his student crew.
Flt Lt Wallis, who has been serving at
RAF Benson for over a decade, sprung
into action when the RDAF Merlin suffered
total mechanical failure while on night
training in a confined area in the middle of
a forest.
Just moments after take-off ? with the
helicopter just 120ft above the trees ? an
emergency situation developed.
No power was going to the engines, the
rotors were coming to a stop and a
student was at the controls.
The 35-year-old swiftly took control of
the aircraft, calmly steered it to a clear
area and issued warnings to his crew
before completing an engine-off landing.
The whole incident is thought to have
lasted no more than 15 seconds.
Flt Lt Ben Wallis said: ?I am extremely
fortunate that my training and experience
allowed me to react quickly enough to
deal with such a catastrophic malfunction.
?To be awarded the Air Force Cross is a
huge honour and I am humbled to think
that my actions on that night are sufficient
to receive such recognition.?

BIRDS, boats and the odd
unsuspecting walker were
snapped by members of
the Oxford Mail Camera
Club as they took to the
water.
Some 15 intrepid photographers walked a two-mile stretch
of the Oxford canal on Monday
evening in search of worthy subjects for this week?s theme of waterways.
The amble was the latest in a
series of camera club meet-ups
after the group previously descended on Blenheim Palace and
Dorchester Abbey.
This trip was organised by Bryan Robertson, 70, who has been

photo of anything but particularly enjoys capturing wildlife,
despite the challenges of trying
to snap moving animals.
He added: ?Blenheim Palace
is basically my back garden so
I?m always outside taking photographs.
?The other day I managed to
follow 70 deer, it made for some
great pictures.
?For me it?s a bit of fun and
something I really enjoy doing.?
The club, which now has nearly
700 members, sees amateur photographers share their best photos on a weekly theme with the
highlights featuring in the newspaper every Friday.
Each week one photo is picked
as the winner with that snapper
receiving � in Jessops vouchers.
Becca Collacott, from Abingdon, has been in the club since
the start and was crowned the
first ever winner.
The trainee nursing associate
said she uses photography as a
way of taking time out from her
job.
She said: ?I have always got a
camera on me and there must
only be two or three days of the
year when I don?t take any pictures at all.
?It?s a really nice group of
people, we?re all from different
backgrounds but share the same
hobby.
?If you have any issues at all
there is always someone to help
out and teach you new skills.?

People should be able
to switch to buses
OXFORD?S local transport policy
is dominated by people who want
bus connections in central Oxford
all but destroyed. But they have
spent almost two decades failing
to redesign the bus network to
stay connected across the city
centre while enabling them to ban
all vehicles from Queen Street
and Cornmarket.
They failed because one cannot
have both. Closing Cornmarket to
buses in 1999 destroyed bus links
between St Giles and High Street.
Now the Transport Secretary has
rejected banning buses from
Queen Street because the county
council proposed no adequate
alternative link.
The Department for Transport?s
Inclusive Mobility guidelines warn
that many people with disabilities
cannot walk more than 200
metres to catch a bus. But many
people changing buses in central
Oxford have to walk at least two or
three times that far. Bus stops for
in Magdalen Street for northerly
routes are 500 or 600 metres from
stops for routes in High Street and
St Aldate?s.
Central Oxford is Oxfordshire?s
main bus hub. And Headington?s
hospitals have patients, visitors
and staff from outside
Oxfordshire. Access to those
Get in
touch:
hospitals gets dangerously
choked by too many cars queuing
to park. We must enable people
throughout Oxfordshire and
beyond to switch from cars to
buses.
Destroying bus links increases
car use. It is a perverse response
to poor air quality.
We need more cycling as well as
better bus links. But 84 cyclists
occupy more road space than
one 84-seat bus. Reducing car
use reduces congestion.
Reducing bus use increases it.

Humans are ruining
habitats for animals
I WAS interested to read of
the ?ne work undertaken by
the Wildlife Trust in preserving
Sydlings Copse Nature Reserve
(Oxford Mail, May 15).
However, I fear that their efforts
will be in vain, and that this ?wildlife
gem? will eventually be eradicated
like the rest of the British
countryside, to provide ever more
habitat for the most rapacious
species on Earth. This week, I
visited Otmoor for the ?rst time
and was enthralled by the sound
of a cuckoo (which I haven?t heard
for years) and the booming of a
bittern, amongst other wonders.
How depressing therefore to learn
that the Oxford to Cambridge
Expressway will soon result in the
disappearance of this remaining
vestige of the British countryside.
It is sickening to be subjected to
the mind-boggling hypocrisy of
politicians of all parties, such as
John Tanner, claiming to stand for
environmental principles, while
simultaneously campaigning for
an open door policy on
immigration. In this respect the
Greens are the biggest joke of all.
Our politicians seek to place the
blame for lack of housing on the
elderly for having the audacity to
live longer, while offering ever
more ?nancial inducements to
people to produce larger families.
Is it any wonder that so much of
the world?s population is
desperate to reach our shores?
Our migrating birds are being
decimated by hunters in France,
Malta and elsewhere on the
continent but it?s no use appealing
to the EU. Some of these birds
migrate to the other side of the
globe and return to the same nest
in the same tree the following year,
all without a satnav, but the
anthropocentric mindset dictates
that all other creatures with whom
we share this planet are either
regarded as pests or products.
Homo Sapiens knows nothing.

C
ALLERS at the telephone
exchange on Speedwell
Street, Oxford, in March
1991, were given numbers
with the help of a new
computer system.
British Telecom (BT) installed
a computerised system which
enabled operators to call up
numbers on a screen at the
press of a button.
The 24 directory inquiry
terminals at the telephone
exchange were directly linked
to a computer in Kensington,
London, which contained a
record of the country?s 23
million subscribers.
The new machines meant
that the operators only needed
to key in an abbreviated form
of the name and address of
the person they were calling,
to then be given a number on
screen within one and half
seconds.
BT said the installation of
the new systems known as
DAS, cuts the average time of
call handling by 30 seconds,
which made calls quicker by a
quarter.

Oxford?s housing
problems are
holding city back
L
AST week, I invited the Secretary of State
with responsibility for Housing to come
to Oxford to view our housing crisis for
himself. I haven?t yet received a response, but
I will keep repeating the invitation for as long
as it takes.
Although I have been an MP for less than
a year, I?ve already received hundreds of
communications from constituents who are
worried about their housing situation, or that
of others in our city ? not least, those sleeping
on our streets.
Oxford is now the least affordable place in
Britain to buy a home, with the average home
costing 16 times average salaries. Rents have
rocketed, and we now have up to 60 people
rough sleeping on our streets of a night.
It doesn?t have to be like this. Back in the
2000s, there were nights without a single
person counted as sleeping rough in Oxford.
Towards the end of the decade, additional
powers were being created so that local
authorities could do more to protect and
promote family housing, in particular. But all
that has changed.
We are now bumping up against the limits
of what one city can do on its own. Oxford
has some of the strictest regulations on
both landlords and developers in the whole
country. Full council tax relief is still available
for those on low incomes ? unlike in most
of the rest of the country, where many lowincome people are being evicted because of
council tax debt. And as well as new provision
of rough sleeper beds coming on stream
(despite cuts to support from Oxfordshire
County Council), we have a variety of
impressive voluntary and charitable activity
to help homeless people, such as last winter?s
churches accommodation project.
Even with that local effort though, rents and
purchase prices are massively out of reach for
many. This has been made worse by a social
security system which fails to even remotely
cover the cost of
housing in Oxford;
There is
and changes to the
not a lot of
?right to buy? policy
brown?eld
which have made
it harder for local
left in Oxford
councils to build.
It is estimated that another 25,000 homes
need to be built by 2031 to keep up with
demand in Oxford ? a huge number. The
current Secretary of State covering Housing
has suggested that the response to housing
demand is just to build on brown?eld land
or to build up ? but there is not a lot of
brown?eld left in Oxford. And while housing
density is also increasing in Oxford, there is a
limit to this. I asked in Parliament how many
MPs were raising their children in ?ats without
a garden ? to no audible response. We need
homes ? but they must be decent homes that
people actually want to live in, accompanied
by decent amenities and decent transport
links.
Oxford?s housing problems are holding our
city back. The high cost of housing puts off
nurses, teachers, scientists and technicians
from basing themselves here ? as well as
causing untold misery for so many living in
overcrowded or unsuitable accommodation.
Hopefully some day the Secretary of State can
come and see this for himself ? then take the
action Oxford needs.

I FEEL PRETTY (12A)
I FEEL many things about writerdirectors Marc Silverstein and
Abby Kohn?s romantic comedy
of female empowerment and
body fascism, but none of
them are particularly pretty.
Lead actress Amy Schumer has
brilliantly lampooned issues
of self-esteem, femininity and
suffocating convention in her TV
sketch show and the hilarious
2015 ?lm Trainwreck. However,
here she is at the mercy of
Silverstein and Kohn?s script,
which piles on misery and selfloathing in the opening hour until
it becomes impossible to achieve
redemption.

It was a day of joy, sunshine, solemnity and
laughter as Prince Harry married his sweetheart
Meghan Markle. Much has been made of how
this most modern of Royal marriages will
change the monarchy and the country but, at its
heart, this was a day when a young couple who
share, as the Archbishop of Canterbury put it, a
profound and strong bond, pledged themselves
to each other. Here is the story of their day...
G
uests including Prince Harry?s
uncle Earl Spencer, Oprah
Winfrey and George Clooney
were among those who ?lled St
George?s Chapel for the royal?s
wedding to Meghan Markle. Ahead
of the ceremony, it was announced
that Harry and his American bride
will be known as the Duke and
Duchess of Sussex.
Among the early arrivals for the
ceremony were Earl Spencer, in a
morning suit, and talk show host
Winfrey, dressed in a pale pink
suit, matching hat and sunglasses.
Winfrey was spotted talking to actor
Idris Elba, while singer James Blunt
was also seen taking his place.
Actor George Clooney and his
barrister wife Amal were also
among the guests, as were football
hero David Beckham and his wife
Victoria.
Community Champions invited
to share in the couple?s big day
? including charity workers, local
volunteers and community stalwarts
? also ?led into the castle grounds
with hampers ready to enjoy the
celebrations.
Hours before the ceremony,
Buckingham Palace announced that
Harry has been given a dukedom ?
the highest rank in the British peerage
? and Meghan will become Her Royal
Highness the Duchess of Sussex.
The Queen?s grandson, who is
sixth in line to the throne, pledged
to love, comfort, honour and protect
the former actress as they become
husband and wife in the historic
surrounds of St George?s Chapel.
Harry also received Scottish and
Northern Irish titles, becoming the
Earl of of Dumbarton and Baron
Kilkeel, which means Meghan
will become the Countess of
Dumbarton and Baroness Kilkeel.
Meghan emerged from the hourlong televised ceremony, which
began at noon, as an HRH and a
member of the British royal family.

Markle?s ?nger
he new Duke of Sussex had
spent his last night as a single
man at the exclusive Coworth
Park country house hotel in Ascot, while,
15 miles away, Meghan, soon to be
HRH The Duchess of Sussex, stayed
with her mother Doria Ragland at the
luxury Cliveden House Hotel in Taplow,
Berkshire.
Around 30 members of the royal family
including the Queen and the 96-year-old
Duke of Edinburgh, who was well enough
to attend after undergoing a recent
hip operation, joined the 600-strong
congregation, to see the couple exchange
vows and rings ? Harry?s is a platinum
band with a textured ?nish, while
Meghan?s has been fashioned from a
piece of Welsh gold, gifted by the Queen.
The couple were married by the
Archbishop of Canterbury, who has
spoken of the strong bond the couple
share.
?There?s profound affection between
them which is wonderful and a deep
understanding and mutual support,? he
said.
During the service, the moving soul
classic Stand By Me by Ben E King was
performed by Karen Gibson and The
Kingdom Choir, with the gospel singers
also delivering Etta James? uplifting
version of Amen/This Little Light of Mine ?
a favourite in African-American churches.
Lady Jane Fellowes, sister of the late
Diana, Princess of Wales, gave a reading.
Her other siblings, Earl Spencer and Lady
Sarah McCorquodale were also there.
The presiding bishop of the American
Episcopal Church Bishop Michael Curry
gave the address, speaking of the power
of love: ?The late Dr Martin Luther King Jr
once said, and I quote: ?We must discover
the power of love, the redemptive power
of love. And when we do that, we will
make of this old world a new world, for
love is the only way?.?
Earlier, the Prince of Wales took on
the role of the absent father of the bride
Thomas Markle, and walked his future
daughter-in-law through the Quire up the
altar to meet her groom.
Mr Markle did not attend on medical
advice after heart surgery.

The burning question on
everyone?s lips was what the
wedding dress would look like ?
and the crowds got their answer
when Meghan stepped out of
the Queen?s Rolls Royce at St
George?s Chapel.
The elegant, minimalist
pure white gown has a boat
neck, and is made of doublebonded silk cady cushioned
by an underskirt in triple silk
organza.
It was designed by Clare Waight
Keller, who was appointed the
?rst female artistic director at
Givenchy in 2017.
Ms Markle chose to work
closely with Ms Waight Keller
on the design because of
her ?timeless and elegant
aesthetic, impeccable tailoring,
and relaxed demeanour?,

Kensington Palace said.
The silk tulle veil, also the work
of Ms Waight Keller, was a
marvel of craftsmanship ?lled
with subtle symbolism.
Kensington Palace revealed
that every one of the handembroidered ?owers on the
trim of the ?ve-meter-long
veil was unique, to ful?l the
bride?s wish to have all 53
members of the Commonwealth
family of nations represented
at the ceremony, as well as
the California Poppy, and
Wintersweet, which grows in
front of the couple?s home in
Kensington Palace. The creators
of the veil spent hundreds of
hours stitching the ?owers,
washing their hands every
30 minutes to ensure it was
immaculate.

HUGHIE Morrison is
still unhappy Nearly
Caught was denied a bigrace victory in Germany.
The
eight-year-old?s
trainer, from East Ilsley,
has watched countless replays of the Group 2 Comer Group International
47th Oleander-Rennen at
Hoppegarten.
Morrison is waiting on
confirmation of the rules
in Germany before any appeal against Nearly Caught
being demoted to second
after beating the favourite Sound Check by half a
length under Robert Winston.
?I think an injustice has
been done,? he said.

?It?s deeply frustrating ?
we won fair and square.
?I understand Germany has the same rules as
us and we wouldn?t have
lost the race here or even
France as the result was
not affected.
?We got first run on the
favourite who was caught
in a pocket.
?We drifted to the rail
but were clear of the other
horse at that point and he
had plenty of time to get to
us after being pulled out.
?Nearly Caught was the
best horse and it?s so disappointing that at the age of
eight he has been robbed
of his Group 2 win.?

SHOCK WIN: Swan A stunned leaders Black Prince. Back (from left): Keith Powell, Dick Walsh, Jon Townsend, Graham Reading. Front: Mick Berry, Terry Stuart, Martin Herbert, Lee Thompson
Fast-starting Swan impress
to end Prince?s winning run
PREMIER Section leaders Black Prince suffered a first defeat of
the season when falling
to a 2-1 loss at Swan A,
writes ANDY BEAL.
Lee Thompson led the way
with 13 dolls (6-3-4) as Swan
secured victory by winning
the first two legs 26-20, 30-24,
before Prince snatched the
third in a shoot-out.
Gladiators A?s unbeaten
run was also ended.
Despite losing the first leg
24-21, Garsington Sports A
claimed the spoils after levelling the match in a three-
stick shoot-out and taking
the decider 25-19.
George A also needed a
shoot-out to earn their first
win in a 2-1 victory at home
to Chequers C in an all Section 1 clash.
The hosts took the opener
21-17, but fell six short in
chasing down a set of 27 by
the visitors in the second leg.
George won the shoot-out
after the decider was tied
24-24.
Only two dolls proved the
difference
as
Woodman
edged Swan B.
Woodman took the lead in
a three-stick shoot-out, only

Despite losing Frankie
Crouch early on, the hosts
soon put the Vale attack to
the sword.
Adam Beck starred ? the
Kiwi top-scoring with 99,
falling just one short of a
ton when he was caught by
Joe Butcher off Charles
Pickford?s bowling.
Beck had shared a 143-run
stand with George
Sandbach, who hit a fluent
52 from 58 balls, while Amin
Rafiq continued where he
left off two weeks ago,
following up his century with
a quickfire 60 from 45 balls
as Downs made 297.
Arthur Jones was the pick
of the Vale attack with 4-41
from ten overs.
Abingdon?s reply got off to
a woeful start, losing Amith
Premkumar to the first ball.
Jon Jenkinson and Will
Barker quickly followed,
leaving Vale reeling on 12-3.
Sutton bowled with venom
and Vale never recovered
from their dreadful start,
being dismissed for 100 in
the 24th over, Adam
Scholey top-scoring with 27.

However, his new role
means both he and OxVox,
United?s supporters? trust, felt
it was not right for him to
continue on their committee.
?It was felt, and agreed by
Stewart, that there could be a
potential conflict of interest,
so we have decided not to
accept Stewart as a co-opted
member of the committee,?
OxVox said in a statement.

Trio ?forced to take relegation? after new FA rules
THREE Oxfordshire clubs have
voiced their disappointment
after being forced into
relegation, writes JACK
JOHNSON.
Headington Amateurs,
Letcombe and Woodstock
Town will drop out of Uhlsport
Hellenic League Division 1
West next season.
Their hand has been forced
by new Football Association
rulings ? one of which states
all grounds at that level must
have floodlights for the
2018/19 campaign.
They are all set to be placed
in Division 2 when the league
structures are announced
today.
The FA Leagues Committee
notified clubs about the
requirement for floodlights at
the start of the 2015/16
season, initially setting a twoyear deadline before extending
it to include the 2017/18
campaign.
Headington Amateurs are
due to move to their new
ground at the Barton Park
development this summer, but
it does not have floodlights.
Secretary Donald Light said:
?We?re not happy.
?We had been at that level for
a long time ? the best part of
30 years.
?The FA have been trying to
do this for several years, but
now they?ve said ?no we?re
going through with it?.?
Woodstock vice-chairman
Neil Roberts said the club have
had applications to install
floodlights at their New Road
ground refused three times.
He added: ?At the level we
play at, floodlights are not
essential.
?We?re not happy about it at
all. We have everything but the
floodlights.?
Letcombe are unable to meet
another new rule ? the
construction of a safe walkway
? due to a cricket pitch
separating the clubhouse and
football facilities.
After strong opposition, the
club have promised locals no
floodlights will be installed at
their Bassett Road ground.
Secretary Des Williams said:
?We can?t get lights ? there
would be such ill-feeling.
?It?s a night sky area and they
want an unobstructed view of
the ground.
?I don?t know where we go,
we?ve asked to drop down to
Division 2, whether we lose
players or not we will have to
wait and see.
?We have proper drainage
and some grounds with lights
are are under water.
?What is more important,
lights or a pitch that is
playable??

We had a chat,
met his people,
and we have all
been very open
and honest in
what we are
trying to achieve
Robinson said his desire to return to
fitness spoke volumes.
?We wanted to get him back and
get some minutes into him to try to
get him to a better level for when we
come back next season,? he said.
?He?s a top man and hopefully we
can build around him.?
Meanwhile, Robinson says he is continuing to work apace to try to bring
in new signings.
?I?ve only had two or three days off
since the end of the season,? he said
yesterday.
?I am meeting three agents today,
one tomorrow, four on Thursday and
two on Friday.
?That doesn?t mean we are going to
sign all these players, but it?s important to set up all the meetings.
?We have done our due diligence on
many players.?
He added: ?We are in the midst of a
very busy period.
?Everyone is scrambling around before they go on holiday and the World
Cup, then it will die down a bit before SKIPPER: Karl Robinson is hoping Curtis Nelson is impressed by Oxford United?s
ambition and will agree a new long-term deal
Picture: David Fleming
a manic rush.?
770962
Goalkeeper Simon Eastwood last
week put pen-to-paper on a new threeyear contract, citing a list of exciting
summer transfer targets as one of the
key reasons he was keen to extend his
stay.
United have activated a clause in
Nelson?s contract that keeps him at
the Kassam Stadium for another 12
months.
The U?s boss revealed earlier in the
month the club have offered deals to
several key players whose contracts
have a year left to run.
And Robinson admitted he is hoping
the conversations with Nelson will
lead to a positive outcome.
?We are really looking to build in
the middle area of the pitch, but
ultimately we will all get judged on
what happens in the two boxes,? he
said.
?So to re-sign Curtis, hopefully, and
get Easty over the line, to go along
with Rob Dickie and Mous (John
Mousinho) and then with the two full
backs that we need ? our box will be
very well protected.
?We have had a chat, met his people, and we have all been very open
and honest in what we are trying to
achieve.?
Nelson was expected to miss all the
rest of last season after rupturing
one of his Achilles tendons against
Northampton Town in November.
But the central defender, who turned
25 on Monday, made a remarkable return to feature in the final month of
the campaign.

KARL Robinson is hoping
skipper Curtis Nelson becomes
the next Oxford United player to commit to a long-term
deal.

The burning question on
everyone?s lips was what the
wedding dress would look like ?
and the crowds got their answer
when Meghan stepped out of
the Queen?s Rolls Royce at St
George?s Chapel.
The elegant, minimalist
pure white gown has a boat
neck, and is made of doublebonded silk cady cushioned
by an underskirt in triple silk
organza.
It was designed by Clare Waight
Keller, who was appointed the
?rst female artistic director at
Givenchy in 2017.
Ms Markle chose to work
closely with Ms Waight Keller
on the design because of
her ?timeless and elegant
aesthetic, impeccable tailoring,
and relaxed demeanour?,

Kensington Palace said.
The silk tulle veil, also the work
of Ms Waight Keller, was a
marvel of craftsmanship ?lled
with subtle symbolism.
Kensington Palace revealed
that every one of the handembroidered ?owers on the
trim of the ?ve-meter-long
veil was unique, to ful?l the
bride?s wish to have all 53
members of the Commonwealth
family of nations represented
at the ceremony, as well as
the California Poppy, and
Wintersweet, which grows in
front of the couple?s home in
Kensington Palace. The creators
of the veil spent hundreds of
hours stitching the ?owers,
washing their hands every
30 minutes to ensure it was
immaculate.

HUGHIE Morrison is
still unhappy Nearly
Caught was denied a bigrace victory in Germany.
The
eight-year-old?s
trainer, from East Ilsley,
has watched countless replays of the Group 2 Comer Group International
47th Oleander-Rennen at
Hoppegarten.
Morrison is waiting on
confirmation of the rules
in Germany before any appeal against Nearly Caught
being demoted to second
after beating the favourite Sound Check by half a
length under Robert Winston.
?I think an injustice has
been done,? he said.
