I've been fiddling around for ages trying to work out how to get onto this local (Oxford) GN site, and I'm pleased to have finally landedgrin. A local topic I'd be interested to hear views on is the May Day celebration in Oxford. I went a couple of times a few years ago, as I saw it as a 'rite of passage' to do so. The last time I went I got very disheartened with the pools of vomit, and yaa-hooing students chucking themselves off Magdalen bridge. Being an ex-Morris dancer, I love the dancing/singing side of the celebrations but feel the whole day is being spoilt by a few senseless twatsgrin Anyone else have any views on it?
