Oxfordshire Survey of People Living in Recently Build Houses

Oxfordshire County Council is currently carrying out a short, census style survey of households occupying homes that were built in the county over the last ten years.  The survey is designed to understand what type of services and other infrastructure the community needs.  This information will be used when negotiating the contribution developers should make to support further housing growth.

Survey forms were sent out to most new households at the beginning of October, with a deadline for the return of completed forms of Friday 17th November.

So for those of you who are living in recently built homes it would be really helpful if you could complete the survey.  More information can be found www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/housingsurvey where you can also complete the survey on line.

Adderbury Stores News

Things continue to brighten up at our excellent village shop.

Bhavin has added a range of meats from the renowned Brackley Butchers to complement the regular Meat Joint products, and there’s really good news that the excellent Cornfield Bakery is now delivering 3 times a week a good choice of their breads and morning goods.

Bhavin continues to respond well to his interpersonal skills training – apart from the odd wobble, which would probably happen to us all if we were in the shop 85 hours a week!

He’s doing a great job – use him or lose him.
