A judge at Oxford County Court warned a tenant in her early 20’s, that she could be gaoled, if she does not stop being a nuisance to her neighbours. At a court hearing last week, Mary Hughes of 41 Larkhill Road, Abingdon was ordered to sign an undertaking not to cause any more nuisance to her neighbours. If she fails to abide by her undertaking she risks eviction.
The Vale Housing Association, Miss Hughes’ landlord, started receiving complaints from neighbours 6 months after she first moved into her home in 1996. Neighbours complained about loud music, foul language and the state in which she kept her front garden and house. When Miss Hughes moved home in November 1996 the complaints followed her from 149 Saxton Rd to her new address at 41 Larkhill Rd. Her neighbours reported that she was holding open house parties, causing disturbances at weekends and that her visitors were damaging the doors in the block. The police were called on several occasions.

Neighbours started to fill in a log of incidences involving Miss Hughes, to help assist the Vale HA with its court case.
Pat and George Walker celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on Friday 19th June. The couple, who live at Maude House retirement home at the Chestnuts, Wantage were busy attending a yoga class together the day before their anniversary. The class was part of a series of Yoga, Gentle Exercise and Aromatherapy sessions on offer to residents free of charge thanks to Wantage Community Education. Outreach Worker, Shirley Parker is currently developing a project to encourage participation in Community Education by older learners.
George Walker’s comment was that the deep breathing was exceptionally relaxing, but the exercise involving his shoulders made him feel like a chicken. Tutor Cheryl Burrows ran through a series of exercises that could be done in a chair or even in bed. She was asked Can you come back every week.
