I attach a pdf file showing the plans to develop and revitalise the Contemplation garden at St Giles Church. Details of committee members are included.
Documents have been added to the website for the upcoming meetings. 28th Feb 2022
Our January Japes had to be cancelled due to government restrictions and our concern for the health of our members. The overwhelming response to an e-mail requesting names of people wishing to attend the lunch told us how keen people were for life to return to normal. We are therefore delighted to announce that we are holding the lunch as March Merriments on Thursday 10th March at 12 noon for 12.30pm. People who have already booked will have been contacted and numbers have been made up to a safe figure.
The afternoon talk will proceed as usual with the talk taking place in the Corn Exchange at 2.30pm. Members are welcome to come to listen to the talk if they have not been to the meal. The speaker is Phil Holt, a retired air Traffic Controller; his talk is entitled “Keep calm – I am an Air Traffic Controller”. He covers the history and development then talks about present day flying. This humorous, yet factual, presentation will fascinate everyone so, prepare for take-off! Refreshments will follow as usual.
Chatting in the village I was updated on this photo, the building in the foreground is a cottage that was knocked down some time ago and was in the garden of what is now Highview next door to Pottinger Cottage. The barn was in where the front garden of Clover House.
You can see what looks like a row of cottages on this 1910 map (zoom in).
We will be doing another drop in March, hopefully if possible it will be monthly.
Thank you. Sally.
Dear Sally and Nigel
I am writing to thank you - again - for another enormously generous donation from Great Coxwell. It is just wonderful to know that communities like yours are thinking of refugees and generously supporting them. As I think you know, we are completely dependent on donations for the operation of our food bank - and as we are still supporting almost 100 people and giving out around 1000 items every week, donations like yours are hugely appreciated - especially at this time of year, when we find that donations tend to tail off a bit after Christmas.
Please do pass on our thanks to your generous friends and neighbours!
Kindest regards, Janet

The church can receive "free" money from these people.
The arrangements are simple. This is how it works. If you want to buy anything online, you go into easyfundraising.org.uk first, select your good cause, in this case St Giles Great Coxwell PCC, and then you can buy your goods or services. There is a vast range of organisations taking part in this system.
The shops or services pay either a percentage of what you buy or a fixed sum to our cause on each occasion - it's as simple as that! You don't pay any more for what you are buying.
I hope by advertising this to our villagers we will get some more money added to our cause - beyond the £10.30 seen below. Once we get to £15 or more, they pay us into our account.

Greener Great Coxwell Awarded £33k for Community Heat and Hot Water Feasibility Study
We are really excited to report that Greener Great Coxwell has been successful in our application to the Rural Community Energy Fund for the Phase 1 Community Heat and Hot Water Project feasibility study. With the help of similar projects, especially Heating Upper Heyford and the Greater SouthEast Energy Hub, and the fantastic support of a large number of our residents, we proposed an ambitious project to make sustainable and reliable heat available to the whole village. This grant will enable our energy consultants, Locogen, to carry out the initial study and recommend the way forward. We will update the village as the study progresses over the next few months.

Great Coxwell Well and Pump.
Greener Great Coxwell are looking into the possibility of restoring the well on the triangle of land at the bottom the cobbled path from the Church. After all, our name comes from the fact the village had plenty of water. We have contacted the Parish Council and Oxfordshire County Council and both are happy for us to explore more and say they do not think the well has a registered title owner. If anyone has any interesting information on the well and it’s pump we would love to hear.
Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Can the individual really affect climate change?
Yes. You can, and here’s how…. If you think you want to do more yourself to help 'Just have a Think' have made an excellent short video talking through the different things you could do and the impact that would make.

Great Coxwell used to be full of mature walnut trees , sadly these were all cut down down during the first world war.
There are a two walnut trees in my garden from which I have grown a few seedlings now 2/3 years old .
