Oxford City Council has never (in my lifetime) had a reputation for efficiency or joined-up thinking, but, credit where credit’s due, they do get some things right. They care about homelessness and have done a tremendous amount over the years to tackle this most perennial of problems.
And they’re pretty hot on abandoned shopping trolleys (see picture). You just go to the Abandoned Shopping Trolleys page on their website, fill in the details and someone comes and takes it away.
Yesterday was a double whammy – not only did they take away a trolley, they also took away the tree that had blown down in Sunday night’s storm.
Almost worth paying your council tax for.Links:
