Oxford City Council flies twin city flags following UK’s Brexit
From the Lord Mayor of Oxford:
Lord Mayor of Oxford Cllr Craig SIMMONS is to undertake a twin towns tour in February visiting Bonn, Leiden and Wroclaw to reinforce friendship links post-Brexit. 
Says the Lord Mayor, "I want our European twin towns to know that Oxford is still the same outward-facing, international City that it always has been. EU citizens will always be welcome here."

The trip will be undertaken entirely by train in keeping with the Lord Mayor's aim to reduce carbon emissions.

Plans to dual A40 miss the mark

Plans to dual A40 miss the mark.

Planned works to the A40 that include turning the stretch between Witney and Eynsham into a dual carriageway will receive £102m from central government funding, it was announced in November.

Baroness Natalie Bennett - Green Social Mobility Talk and Q&A

Image may contain: 1 person, sky, outdoor and close-up

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle led the Green Party of England and Wales from 2012-2016. Bennett is a former trustee of the Fawcett Society and founder member of the Green Party Women's Group. She’ll be joining us to talk about the importance of Social Mobility in tackling inequality; to critique the current approaches from an intersectional feminist perspective; and to put forward the transformative idea of “structural mobility” – Social Mobility for the Common Good.

Her leadership saw a quadrupling of party membership, the formation of new local parties, and for the first time, a vote tally of over one million in the 2015 General Election! It was in recognition of this that Bennett was made a member of the House of Lords last year.

The event will be held in University College's Lecture Theatre on 10 Merton Street. The event is fully accessible, but only from inside Univ, so please let us know beforehand if you require it, and we'll make the arrangements.
