Welcome to the website of the Divinity Road Area Residents’ Association (DRARA). We are a community living just east of the centre of Oxford, England’s city of ‘dreaming spires’.
Residents of the area come from a wide range of nationalities and ages. We welcome students from both Oxford University and Oxford Brookes University each year. But we all have one thing in common – the firm belief that together we can make a real difference to the environment and the quality of life of the community of which we are all a part.This website is intended to provide information about the area for residents, visitors (virtual and real), friends, strangers and newcomers to East Oxford. The history of the Divinity Road area, illustrated by photographs, will be of interest to those who are researching their family tree as well as to residents.
The menu of options is divided between those which enable you to find out more about our activities and join DRARA; you will find those along the top of the page. The menu down the right-hand side of the page will give you more information about what is going on in the area, current environment, traffic and development issues, as well as useful contacts and links. There is a map of the area in the Environment section.
If you would like to be informed by email about updates to this website, or future events and activities, please complete the contact form – you will find it on the top of the page – the Get in Touch button. We hope you enjoy our website.
Elizabeth Mills OBE (Chairman, DRARA)
