Oxford Village Fete (part of folk festival)

Written by oxford on April 9, 2014 – 10:00 am -

Gloucester Green will take on the atmosphere of a village fete in April, as part of the Oxford Folk Festival. On Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th April, various local groups will get together to run traditional-style games as well as doing a little (equally traditional) campaigning. The atmosphere should be fun and family-oriented. We’ll be there on the Saturday – why not come along and say hello?

Come to our AGM – and maybe volunteer?

Written by oxford on April 8, 2014 – 10:00 am -

We’ll be getting together in May for our AGM (Annual General Meeting). We’re meeting at Oxford Town Hall as usual. The AGM is where we get through the necessary business of running a successful group such as signing off our accounts. It’s also time to elect committee posts for the coming year, so it’s a great chance to get involved with the group. Committee positions include:

  • Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Oxspur editor
  • Communications Officer
  • Stall organiser

If you are interested in any of these roles, it would be great if you could let us know before the meeting.  Please get in touch by emailing

We are particularly keen to find a new Treasurer. You don’t need amazing maths or financial skills to take on the role, and if elected you will get support in learning how to do the job.

Note: all posts on the Oxford WDM committee are voluntary, unpaid roles. Your “payment” will be getting involved with an inspiring organisation, meeting cool people and learning new skills!
