New Neighbourhood Watch Schemes in your Area

Do you care about the community you live in? Would you like to see a Neighbourhood Watch scheme operating in your area?

Neighbourhood Watch schemes are there to increase awareness about what is happening around the area that you live and to make sure people are looking out for each other, especially the elderly and more vulnerable members of the community.

Adderbury Green Association

Request for support for the maintenance of the Adderbury Village Green
The Adderbury Village Green is undoubtedly one of the main focal points of our village. The Green is one of the major attractions of the village, one of which we can be proud and is enjoyed by many villagers who pass by on their travels.
You may or may not be aware that The Green is owned and maintained by a Trust known as the Adderbury Green Association with the cost of grass cutting shared with the Parish Council. Funds have run very low and the costs of the Adderbury Green Association include annual insurance, the cost of keeping the trees safe with necessary trimming and pruning, and the half share of regular grass cutting. Tree maintenance is required in 2018 and is likely to cost in excess of £1,500.
The Trustees are asking if all houses directly facing The Green could contribute £35 a year towards this cost, with other village households who appreciate the Green contributing £25 or whatever you are able to give. All contributions, for whatever amount, will be gratefully received. We will also be asking local businesses around The Green for a contribution. We will request funds in March/April each year and we hope that good support from all will enable us to keep the requested contribution at this modest level.

One Parish or Two – Adderbury Parish Council Statement

Further to our previous post regarding the proposal for two parishes for Adderbury, Adderbury Parish Council has issued the following statement:

‘For any residents concerned about the rumours of a split in the Parish Council into East Adderbury and West Adderbury, Cherwell District Council has confirmed that such a change would require a Community Governance Review and CDC has no plans to undertake such a review.’

 

Colin Butler Green – Residents Consultation

The Parish Council would like to hear the views of Adderbury residents on their proposal for a new footpath around the edge of Colin Butler Green. The suggestion is that pedestrians from the Horn Hill Road direction could walk from the existing footpath across the first entrance to Manor Road and then follow the curve around the Colin Butler Green on the new footpath. They could then cross the second entrance to Manor Road, opposite the entrance to Cross Hill House.

Should you have any comments, please email them to adderburypc@hotmail.com or ring the Clerk to the Parish Council, Theresa Goss, on 01295 710965.

Tree Management at the Lucy Plackett Playing Field

Visitors and users of the Lucy Plackett Playing Field may have noticed that tree felling, crown thinning, canopy lifting and other work was carried out on Monday 19 February.  This work was identified as Priority 2 in a 2015 survey of trees growing on seven public open spaces and amenity areas in the village that was commissioned by the Adderbury Parish Council.

Mobile Telephone Coverage Survey

Last year, Cherwell District Council’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee decided to distribute a survey to provide evidence of the state of mobile telephone coverage across the district.

The survey can be found here.

The results will enable CDC to fight proactively to get better mobile coverage in Rural Areas.
