Gathering memories of Rolling Stones city gig

First published in Letters

It’s 50 years since the Rolling Stones played a show at Oxford’s Town Hall as part of their rise to become perhaps Britain’s most well known group after The Beatles and certainly its most long lasting.

I’m compiling a people's history of the Stones and if any of your readers were at the show back in 1963 and would like to share their memories – who they went with, what they remember of the gig, whether they enjoyed it – I’d love to hear from them either by email or post.

Oxford Mail:

Having read so many articles in the national newspapers regarding patients receiving sometimes quite appalling service in their local hospitals, how lucky we are in Oxfordshire to receive such wonderful service at the John Radcliffe Hospital, The Churchill Hospital and also the Nuffield Hospital.

Residents would be under constant stress

In reference to Pye Homes-Blenheim Consortium’s proposal to build 1,500 houses on farmland sites at Woodstock East and the Cherwell District in proximity to Oxford London Airport. I would think that the last thing that any developer or council should be doing is planning to build a substantial number of homes in close proximity to the flight path of an expanding airport.
