Parish News – October 2017

Fresher’s Fair

The parish council organised a Fresher’s Fair for people to find out more about the groups and organisations in the village. The displays were colourful and informative, and I hope we will be able to arrange another one in a couple of years.


At its September meeting, the Council granted £25 to Clean Slate towards counselling and support for victims of abuse in Oxfordshire. 

The Council also made a grant of £50 to Be Free Young Carers to support their work with young carers aged 8 to 25 across the South and Vale area.

The Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum received a grant of £25 towards their archive work of the two county regiments from the Great War and the parishes from which their men came.
