The parish council are needing both another councillor and also a Responsible Financial Officer. As a leaving councillor I have found it a great privilege to work with the council. They are a good team, helping the village with lots of different practical things in the village such as planning, mowing verges, looking out for the Park and the reading room. They have a public meeting every other month and in between times business is mainly done through email. If you are in any way interested please contact Jo King at the Old Post Office on firstname.lastname@example.org

OVO Energy Women’s Tour professional cycling race, taking place on 12th June in Oxfordshire.
Stage three of the race starts in Henley-on-Thames, runs through Faringdon and ends at Blenheim Palace. Close to home the A417 from Wantage to Faringdon will be closed for normal traffic. And some of the A420. There are yellow signs up saying the times of closures.
About the OVO Energy Women’s Tour in brief
Created by SweetSpot Group in 2014, the OVO Energy Women’s Tour is the UK’s first international stage race for women, bringing the world’s top riders to compete in Great Britain as a part of the UCI Women’s World Tour. The race will be over six days for the first time in its history in 2019.
The race, which has been won by the likes of Marianne Vos (2014), Lizzie Deignan (2016) and Coryn Rivera (2018), attracts an annual roadside audience of 300,000, as well as over three million fans through linear and online platforms.
It is with great sadness I write that Polly died suddenly while on holiday in Amsterdam. Polly lived in the village for about ten years at Wayside Cottage.
Her funeral service will be at Westminster Cathedral, London on Thursday 27th June at 2.30 pm.
Everyone is most welcome to come.
