Your representatives in Jericho

The Jericho Community Association (JCA) has five main tasks:

  • To administer the Jericho Community Centre
  • To establish a new community centre on the canalside site
  • To represent Jericho residents on local issues such as planning
  • To organize local events such as the annual Street Fair
  • To keep residents aware of local concerns

The JCA is a charitable incorporated organisation. Registered Charity No. 1168203

The Association is open to anyone who lives in Jericho or elsewhere and everyone is welcome to come to most of the monthly meetings which are held at the Community Centre on the second Monday of most months at 8.00 p.m.

The 2023 AGM was held in Exeter College Walton Street. As a result of the elections the management of the Association consists of:

Chair: Charlotte Christie (Canal Street)
Vice-chair: John Crabtree (Walton Street)
Treasurer: Peter Stalker (Cranham Street)

The other committee members are: Scott Ellis, Zoe Guy, Joelle Mann, Phyllis Starkey, George Taylor, and Alex Towler

===================================================

For the past 20 years the JCA has been working towards establishing a new community centre on the vacant canalside site.

For this purpose, we have joined forces with three other other local organizations to form the Jericho Wharf Trust. They are St. Barnabas Church, the Jericho Living Heritage Trust, and the Jericho Community Boatyard.

For the latest information on this project, please visit the Jericho Wharf website

What kind of households we have?

According the to 2011 Census, almost half of Jericho households – 46% – consisted of only one person, 24% consisted of couples with or without children, 7% were student households, and 11% were other multi-person households, while 6% were single-parent households.

The history of the Phoenix?

There has been a cinema here since 1913. Orginally it the 'North Oxford Kinema', since when it has passed through many hands and names, including the Scala, the New Scala, the Studios 1 and 2, Studio X (a club showing soft porn) and finally in 1977 the Phoenix.
