Welcome to the Spring issue of 2013.
Or at least, it is supposed to be Spring - and British Summertime to boot. But the Arctic Jet Stream seems to have taken up permanent residence over northern Europe, and the end of March saw some of the worst blizzards around England that people can remember. Oxford escaped relatively unscathed, but it has been freezing cold for too long. When will this winter be over, when will this winter be done ...?
And only a few weeks now before we make our first forays into the outside world for dancing at the Oxford Folk Weekend and St George's Day. That Jet Stream had better get back where it belongs, PDQ. (Have a look at the event calendar to find out where we will be over the next few months.)
Meanwhile, stay warm and enjoy the issue.
