Draft Notes of Parish Council Meeting – 27 July

There were apologies from Andrew McHugh, Mike Bishop and Matthew Gerrard.
Vacancies: It was agreed to co-opt Lucy Wells onto the Parish Council.  Other applicants would be asked to provide more details about themselves and also to attend a PC meeting and if they were still willing to stand their applications would be considered.
Chairman’s Announcements:  The planning for the revision of Condition 2 had been approved.  There had been anti social behaviour at the Lucy Plackett Playing Field late at night.  This would be followed up with Thames Valley Police who would be asked to increase their monitoring of the area.

Local Resident – Harriet Dickens

Over the last six months, local resident and pupil of Warriner School, Harriet Dickens, has spent 24 hours litter picking in the village as part of her Duke of Edinburgh, Silver Award.  Harriet has also supported the Parish Council’s ‘Paint Means Poo’ campaign by spraying dog mess left on the ground to highlight just how bad the problem is in Adderbury. The Parish Council was very happy to support Harriet with the volunteering element of her Award and it is inspiring that a young person wanted to look after and take pride in the village in which she lives.

Vandalism in Adderbury

Sometime between 1800 on 11 July and 0830 on 12 July someone threw a piece of rock through the front window of Cobb Cottage, 5 Mill Lane Adderbury. It looks as if it was vandalism rather than an attempted burglary. This is totally unacceptable in our lovely village.
The Police are investigating. If anyone has any ideas on who may have done this or knows anything about it, please report it to the Police. Surely we all have a vested interest in stopping this type of thing. Ray Robinson

Dog Fouling in the Village

The Parish Council is supporting a new initiative to tackle dog fouling in the village, which involves spraying with a fluorescent paint dog mess which has not been picked up by dog owners. This will hopefully make it obvious just how bad the issue is in the village and also shame those, who do not pick up after their dogs, into doing so. If anyone in the village is concerned about dog fouling and would like to support this work, please contact the Clerk. adderburypc@hotmail.co. This has been trialled in other areas of the Country and has been very effective.
