Annual Village Litter Blitz 2018

Image of litter pickers

Thank you to everyone who turned out to help litter pickers today (Sat 28th). More folk arrived after this pic was taken, so we actually had 22 helpers in total – 1 chap came from Wallingford with his daughter!  A special thank you Crispin Topping, who litter picks every day – the lack of litter this year was remarkable!!

BBC Radio Oxford Community Appeals

BBC Radio Oxford Community Appeals

There is a new feature launching soon for local people who might like to make an appeal to BBC Radio Oxford listeners. 

It’s called ‘Shout Out Oxfordshire’ and will give community groups, clubs, charities, etc. the chance to make a 45 second appeal to our listeners, free of charge, which will be repeated every day for at least a week, and go on the BBC Radio Oxford iPlayer for a month. It could be used to ask for more members or volunteers, donations of items, skills or time, more people to use a community service, or something else, but not money.

If you would like more details of how to take part, please email me with some basic info about the appeal (including any deadline), or if you know someone else who might like to have a go, please forward this email on to them. 


All the best.

Mark Watson,

Broadcast Journalist, Producer & Music Manager.
