On Thursday, 4 May, new informational hoardings were installed at the Banbury Road entrance of our North Oxford development. The designs to the right of the entrance provide project details and a timeline of College history, whilst the infographic to the left highlight our ongoing commitment to biodiversity at the site.
Angela Unsworth, Domestic Bursar, says: “The infographic is a really concise way of demonstrating what enhancements to biodiversity are planned on the site. Significantly, there is much else that we can do to ensure that the flora and fauna of our wildlife thrive in our care. We can install boxes for different species of birds, create havens for insects and larvae in log piles, encourage newts, toads and frogs to inhabit our cool leaf mulch which will be positioned around site. If it flies, crawls or, of course, walks on two legs, we look forward to creating a special place called home for all”
