Lost a Silver Bracelet?
A few weeks ago Millie Rawicz who lives in the Bicester Road near the entrance to the village, found a silver bracelet in the road outside her house. Despite asking around no one has come forward to claim it and she is concerned as it is a particularly nice piece of jewellery.
If this is yours contact Millie by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
East West Rail
EWR will be carrying out reparation works to The Park road that runs from the A4421, passed Stratton Park and onto Godington and Poundon. The work will included repairs to the road surface, restoration of the verges to pre-works condition and replacement of safety signage, some of which has been damaged or disappeared. You should have received a leaflet through the door about it but it will be in two phases which will run concurrently. The road will be closed to through traffic but access for locals will be maintained throughout.
Monday 16th October to 10th November 2023 from the cross-roads with Mill Road to the turn-off for Godington.
Monday 13th November to 15th December from the cross-roads with Mill Road to the junction with the A4421.
Trees in the Village
Following enquiries received from local residents about the lime trees in Cherry Street, we have been advised by Highways that a thorough survey of the trees in the village is to be carried out and as a result some works including pruning of the lime trees will be undertaken in the near future.
