OXON: Today marks the 150th birthday of our sister paper, The Oxford Times .

The paper was launched on Saturday, September 6, 1862, as The Oxford Times and Midland Counties Advertiser.

To mark the anniversary the paper has been redesigned and is offering one reader the chance to win a £150,000 bursary for their son or daughter to attend St Edward’s School in North Oxford.

Today's 260-page edition contains new sections, new writers and a new look, along with a 28-page commemorative supplement and a facsimile copy of the original 1862 paper.

As a result of this bumper bundle, the popular Oxfordshire Limited Edition magazine will appear in the September 13 issue.
