I am writing concerning the publicity over RWE nPower’s decision to blow up the Didcot Power Station cooling towers in the dark, thus depriving the community at large an opportunity to view this long-awaited spectacle.
I have a suggestion which I hope RWE nPower gives serious consideration to before they blow up the main chimney.
That a draw/raffle is held, say £1 a ticket. The winning ticket holders push the detonator button and all proceeds go to local charities.
This practice was widely used in the days of the old central electricity generating board, at the end of a power station’s life and not only created valuable community involvement but also raised valued donations for local charities.
How about it RWE nPower?

WE ARE pleased about investment in the railways, taking freight off roads, but this means much greater activity on existing lines, some of which in Oxford run alongside homes, from the station through Jericho to Wolvercote, where the former branch line to Bicester is to become part of a busy East-West route.

THE report in Saturday’s Oxford Mail that Templars Square in Cowley could be redeveloped quite excited me because it’s something that I have long thought could be the future.

MANY will know that for years my family and I lived in The Clock House immediately opposite the terrace of cottages in Grove Street, Wantage that is potentially under threat.

IT IS a matter of some concern that a significant number of business units are lying empty or have recently closed down in the Bicester town centre due to high business rates and a lack of free car parking opportunities leading to a severe reduction in customers.
