Topic - Come and build a wall in Oxford!

quiffhanger - on 28 Mar 2013
This is the Brookes wall on a fairly typical evening:

Sometimes they stop letting people in entirely. Particularly annoying if you've got a annual membership so have already paid!

Management, by their own admission aren't able to do anything about it: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=550872161612284&id=135030576529780&comment... (Thread also illustrate's the depth of feeling). Even though the wall appears to be making plenty of cash it all goes back into a central pot, never to be seen again.

I've done a little research and I think there's likely funding available from the council too via cash earmarked for youth-support programmes. A decent proposal for a wall might be able to get access this.

No doubt a well-run wall in the right place would see loads of business. If I didn't already have a job I'm enjoying I'd be building one myself!
