Collection of Grey Bins i.e. non recycling rubbish – There seems to be some confusion as to what will or will not be collected as regards non-recycling rubbish that is put out for collection every two weeks. The Council would like to remind everyone that as per the Vale of White Horse District Website no extra bags of waste will be collected from beside your grey bin. More information and advice can be found on the Vale’s website:

Memorial Field – Join the Oxford Preservation Trust (OPT) on Saturday 25 February in the Memorial Field for its winter ‘scrub bash’. The session, which will be led by the Abingdon Green Gym, will be from 9:30 – 12:30. Meet in the car park at the end of Playfield Road.
No previous experience is necessary. Wear stout shoes or wellies and old clothes. Please bring gardening gloves and secateurs or loppers if you have them. Other hand tools and elevenses will be provided. You will be cutting back the brambles and thorn scrub and having a big bonfire so there’s plenty to do to suit all ages and abilities. OPT would be delighted if you can join them for some good exercise outside in convivial company.
For more information contact or phone OPT on 01865 242918.
Grants – At its January meeting, the Council granted £120 to Kennington Whist Club that meets each month at the Village Centre.
