This section is for you to put forward what you want people to know and what you think will interest them.

But with that opportunity comes the responsibility that you have to follow the same laws and standards that the Oxford Mail has to. So, all we ask is that you do not submit anything that would not appear in other sections of this website or the Oxford Mail newspaper.

That means what you submit is true, can be proved, does not offend any person or group, is not profane, does contain indecent material and meets the Press Complaints Commission's code of practice.
