CONSULTATION – A361 Banbury Road southern end (Wardington) Proposed 30mph Speed Limit Extension

Letter from Oxfordshire County Council: Following an earlier consultation carried out in November/December 2018 regarding the proposals to introduce a new Puffin crossing on the A361 Banbury Road, and extend the 30mph speed limit at the northern end of Wardington, Oxfordshire County Council is now consulting on an additional proposal to help further mitigate the increase in traffic linked to the HS2 construction works. Specifically the proposal seeks to extend the 30mph speed limit at the south end of the village by 73 metres, reducing the length of the existing 50mph speed limit by the same amount.

Spot the Easter Egg!

Please help to keep kids occupied on their walks round the village by putting a picture or model of an egg in a window or somewhere outside your house. Obviously we can’t have a proper Easter egg hunt, so nothing that will be picked up, please. There are two eggs hanging in the windows of Tite Cottage for starters.

Message from Revd Hilary Campbell

Hello everyone, An update on church services: The Church of England has confirmed that public worship is to stop for the time being.  Our usual pattern of Sunday services and other mid-week gatherings must be put on hold.  There will be changes to the way we can gather as church.
