New time for our East Oxford Drop-in

From Thursday October 4th the time of our weekly Drop-In at Union Street, East Oxford, will move forward half an hour to 12.30 - 2.30pm.  This is because there will be a new stay-and-play session, funded by a transitional grant from the council, running alongside the our session.  We are delighted to be working with Farhat, the Coordinator, and volunteers, providing a service together on Thursdays afternoons, after many months in which we were the only thing happening in the building!  

Save the Date! Festive Family Party 1st December 2018

On Saturday December 1st, 3-5pm, we will be holding our first ever OBS Festive Concert at the East Oxford Community Centre.  This will be child-friendly and informal, with great music from local performers, and plenty of opportunities to support our work for the year to come.  Please feel free to save the poster image above and display and share it.


In advance of the concert, we are running a Holiday Card Competition, and two designs, one by a child and one by an adult, will chosen for printing by Rachel Barbaresi, an artist, teacher and mother living and working in Oxford. The cards will be sold to raise money for OBS and the artists of the chosen designs will receive an OBS water bottle and 10 cards for free.
