    Plan of centre

    The Centre occupies the former St Barnabas Church Institute

    This is a fairly ‘mature’ building which we are planning to replace with a new centre on the canalside development site. We try to keep the building in good order but there will always be compromises since we can only invest so much in a building that is coming to the end of its life. One consequence is that disabled access is confined to the ground floor.

    Some of the rooms are available for public hire. Others are generally rented out to charitable organizations and services that the Jericho Community Association wishes to encourage. We use the income from room hire and rents to generate funds to subsidize community activities, administer the centre, and invest in the development of a new centre.

    The rooms are as follows:

    • A1 - Ground floor hall - for public hire.
    • A2 - Cafe - for public hire.
    • B1 - First floor hall - for public hire.
    • B2 - Rented to Jericho low-cost counselling service
    • B3 - Community Centre adminstration office
    • B4 - Rented to British Elastic Rope Sports Association
    • C1 - Rented to Jericho Wharf Trust
    • C2 - Rented as art studio
    • C3 - Rented to counselling service
    • C4 - Rented to Healthy Oxford
    • C5 - Rented to Trading for Development

     

    Did you know?

    Where we work?

    According to the 2001 Census, in Jericho 28% of those working were self-employed, while 18% worked part time. Around 20% were in higher professional occupations compared with 14% for Oxford. We also tend to work nearby: 72% of people worked within five kilometres of their home; 18% went to work on foot, 13% by car and 6% by bike

    Margaret Thatcher used to live here?

    In her Oxford days, she lived at 12 Richmond Road. It is alleged she shared the house with two red-hot communists who lived on a diet of sausages. This may account for her later views on socialists and known dislike of sausages.
