Emergency beds open on Easter Monday for people experiencing rough sleeping
Says Green Councillor Dick Wolff, "It is absurd that the Council requires rough sleepers to present at O'Hanlon House between 11 pm and midnight. The point of providing emergency beds is to get people out of the severe weather - not keep them hanging around in the cold until almost midnight."

Please join us campaigning to get Andrew Prosser elected as District and County Councillor on 6th May!
Activities: we will be door-knocking and leafleting. Door-knocking is much easier than you think - and more fun! Materials and guidance will be provided and anyone less experienced or confident can go in a pair with someone more experienced, or can help with leafleting instead.
Covid precautions - we won’t be going inside, will bring own sandwiches/drinks, have with us masks and hand sanitiser, will maintain social distancing.
We will meet outside the house (address given below), which is next to the Elmfield council offices & opposite No. 20 on New Yatt Road. Parking (if arriving by car) is in the Elmfield council offices car park next door.
Come for the whole day, or just for the morning (10am-1pm) or afternoon (1/1.30-4pm).
Across the country Greens are more popular than they have ever been. In Oxford we have a track record of successful councilliers and strong candidates meaning we have a real opportunity to increase our Green voice. However, with Covid we have been restricted in campaigning we need your help to make up ground.
This action day will be a chance to do that with some canvassing, door knocking and leaflet delivery. It is a real chance to reach voters, inform them about the election and offer support with coping with the pandemic.
We will meet in groups outside at 41 Magdalen Road Oxford, OX4 1RP, United Kingdom from 10:30am and leave by 11am. We aim to continue till 5pm.
This action day will be following Covid safety guidance, thus we will ask you to bring masks and hand sanitiser. If you have any questions about the steps we are taking to ensure Covid safe delivery then please get in touch.
Please RSVP below and you will receive an email with more details.
