Village Litter Pick and General Tidy Up.

Saturday 1st April 10 am. (this is not an April Fool!)

After last years' successful litter pick and tidy up we hope to repeat

the process. Please would anybody who is willing to help meet by the pond for a 10am start on 1st April.

If you have a picker upper/grabber please would you bring it, as

Cherwell only provide us with 6! Your own gloves would be a good

idea too, as the ones they provide seem to all be XXL!!

Look forward to seeing you and we hope for a fine morning.

If you are unable to come but have a few moments in which you could tidy up outside your own house that would be a great help, if there is a serious amount of rubbish we will collect it if you let me know.

Thank you in anticipation

Safe and Well visits from Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service

Did you know that Oxfordshire County Council’s Fire and Rescue Service offer free Safe and Well Visits? Our firefighters will visit you at home to see what they can do to help you reduce the risk of fire.

What does a visit cover? It combines a Home Safety Check to help reduce the risk of fire in your home, such as checking and fitting smoke alarms and helping you make a fire escape plan.

During the visit firefighters are able to provide advice and support to reduce any immediate risk from falls, fire, flood or power cuts. They can also provide advice on health and crime prevention too.

You can request a visit online at www.365alive.co.uk/safewell or call our Community Safety Helpline on 08000 325 999. If a loved one or friend would benefit from a visit please let them know about our Safe and Well visits.

Do you have a fire safety concern or question? There’s lots of great tips and advice to help keep you and your family safer at home on www.365alive.co.uk. Or you can call our Community Safety Helpline on 08000 325 999.
