Cooking Fires

All it takes is one distraction.  Did you know that 1 in 3 people rescued from house fires in Oxfordshire are rescued from cooking fires? Or that distraction is the main cause of cooking fires?
It’s easy to get distracted – the phone rings, someone’s at the door or a TV show catches your attention. If you need to leave your cooking, even for a couple of minutes:
– turn down the heat
– set the timer
– or ask someone to watch it for you
Or could find that Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service firefighters join you for dinner!

Traffic Calming

Following the very strong turnout and calls for action by village residents at the last Parish Council meeting, the Parish Council’s Environment Committee is investigating the issue of traffic calming in the village. The biggest concern is due to those drivers who are not driving within the speed limits.

As an immediate first step, the Parish Council wishes to remind all those driving around the village to be considerate neighbours and obey the speed limits which are in place to keep everyone safe. The Parish Council asks residents to do their bit to help with the problem by slowing down. When Thames Valley Police are engaged to address the issue, motorists who drive within the limits will not be caught speeding and issued with a penalty.

This is an issue which can only be addressed by the Parish Council if it has the support and assistance of the residents of the village.
