Helpdesk in the Oxfordshire History Centre at St Luke's, Cowley
Note (as top left above) building work is making parking difficult, even our advisors are having trouble getting in for their sessions!
In consequence, we have cancelled our advisor sessions at OHC during the week 12-17 December and, of course, we can't run sessions while OHC is closed 20-24 December either (Bah Humbug).
Merry Christmas, we look forward to seeing you in the New Year.
