Parish News October 2019

Deep Cleanse – Vale of White Horse District Council has organised a deep cleanse in Kennington from 16 – 22 October. This will involve litter picking, sweeping and removing weeds/moss from pavements. The team will cover as much of the village as possible, but the council has asked them to focus on Poplar Grove, Meadow View Rd and Otters Reach.

Reminder for dog owners – Residents have reported several incidents where dogs at the playing fields have caused worry or distress to other members of the public, particularly young children. Please ensure that your dog is under control, so the playing fields can be enjoyed by all.
