Welcome to Kennington

Our village stands between the River Thames and the A34 trunk road to the south of Oxford. It is an active village of 4,000 people, who need to know what’s going on.

This website will tell you what’s going on, in the village and around it. Use the menu to find out about village activities, the services available, news from the village organisations and a whole host of other things.

If there’s something you need to know about, you’ll probably find it on this site. If you can’t, let us know – this website is BY the village and FOR the village and we want it to contain all anyone could reasonably expect to find here.

Read about the website here.
