    OYP is under new management!

    We're arranging an event in (mid) January to kick things off. It's waaaaaaay too close to Christmas to get anything organised now, so get your name down and let's meet up in the new year for a jolly : )

    Really short notice but me and a couple of friends are heading to Thorpe park at the weekend for the Halloween fright night. Anyone interested in joining us?

  • Matt S

    Good morning from Japan,
    I hope you are all well. I'm writing because the time has come for me to pass on my duties as organiser of OYP. Due to work commitments, relocating out of Oxford and having less time available, I can't give this group the attention it needs. I've thoroughly enjoying setting the group up and running things with help for the last year and thank you all for making it so much fun.
    With that said, many of you are keen for the group to continue and return to its former glory! (regular meetups of 30-40 people at a time and lots of parties!) To achieve this, I am looking for volunteers who would like to take over the running of the group. It is fun, you do meet lots of people and I certainly found it very rewarding.

    If this sounds like something you would be interested in please write on the noticeboard by the end of the week.
    Thank you to everyone who has been involved in OYP up until this point,
    Matt

      Hi Matt,
      Hope you're having fun in Japan. I realise the deadline's passed but I'd definitely be keen to help out if you're still looking for people!

      100% Mary. I'd recommend linking up with Ben and Kat and taking things forward from there.

    Hi, I just found out about this page. I saw a couple of old posts, and wondered if any of it was still relevant. Tennis and horse riding. I am really interested in both those things if anyone is involved at all. :)

    So yeah, I'm not having ANY luck with Spareroom/Daily Info - so this is worth a shot! Does anyone know of any rooms going to rent, about £500 pcm, preferably in my beloved Cowley? I'd like to think I'm really easy to live with and nice, and would prefer a fairly social houseshare. xxx

    Good morning sports fans,

    Just to say...there are only 5 days left to buy your OYP ball tickets. I know I spoke to some of you Wednesday night and you plan to buy them after the weekend-that's fine. To all others who aren't sure:

    1. This ball is going to be awesome.

    2. Guests are welcome

    3. Perfect opportunity to meet new people-the reason we all joined right?

    4. If you're new to the group this is a great first event to attend

    5. All proceeds go to the Oxford Children's hospital charity (feel those heart strings...)

    If you are 100% definitely not coming please do RSVP so we know numbers either way.

    Thanks!

    OYP team xxxx

    For those that were interested in horse riding, I have finally found a school that has a horse big enough for me. First lesson on the 29th and I'll see how it goes, then if you fancy joining me the place is in Tetsworth, about 12 miles East on the A40, which means get a ride with me, have a car or a pushbike ride all together (about an hour).

    I'll give more feedbacks after the lesson ^_^
