The Parish Council met on February 5th with 9 Parish Councillors, Mike Fox-Davies Oxfordshire Council Councillor and a number of members of the public being present.

Last year the Parish Council commissioned a professional report on the Horse Chestnuts around the Big Green. The report suggested a course of tree surgery to maximise the life of the trees. After obtaining quotes we have asked Ringrose's to do the work and we will liaise with them, and The District Council's Tree Officer, to find the best time to do the work. Before any work is done the Parish Council will display what works have been recommended to individual trees so that residents can express their views.

May we remind residents that dogs, including puppies are not allowed within the children’s play park. Please, do not tie puppies up within the play park.

Parish Council elections will be held on May 2nd 2019. Parish Council Councillor’s are elected for a period of 4 years.
