The Lakes are Closed until further Notice

This is to let residents know the Lakes are closed, as a large number of fish have died over the past few days.
The Environment Agency have done tests. They have not yet reached any conclusion on the causes but think the most likely cause is a naturally occurring eco toxin which can be found in this type of lake during hot weather. Therefore, the PC and Lakes Management Team have decided to close the Lakes for the time being and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Injured Cat

On 5 July at 9.45 pm just outside Milton on the Milton Road to Adderbury a young lady unfortunately had a cat run right in front of her passing car. She stopped immediately and ran up to comfort and pick up and console the cat, whilst being very distraught and upset and worried for its life. After some help and advice from another motorist and passing cyclists she then took the cat to Hook Norton Veterinary surgery where a Vet and Veterinary nurse was on call. The cat may be chipped.
