Call to action! Tonight, Sheldonian, 6pm – Oxford Property Awards

Call to action

Oxford Property Festival Awards are happening tonight.

We need everyone to turn out to demonstrate that we do not support rewarding the building of NON AFFORDABLE HOMES!

Not one of the awards criteria mentions affordability!

Please come to the front of the Sheldonian Theatre at 6pm!

Bring banners and your individual groups leaflets!
