Parish Council Notes - Jan 2012

Unfortunately, the December meeting of the Parish Council had to be cancelled at short notice and by the time you read this, the next meeting on 19th January will have been held. Luckily, there were no matters deemed as urgent.

2012 is seen as an important year for the country with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics and the Councillors are keen to organise events to coincide. No firm plans have been agreed on as yet regarding the Diamond Jubilee, but hopefully a “mini” Olympics will be held in Ovingham before the main event! Watch this space.

Both Ovingham and Ovington Parish Councils have agreed to fund the purchase of a wooden bench to be placed in the churchyard, by the entrance. It is hoped it will be used by both residents and visitors alike as a place for quiet reflection.

A reminder that more news as well as minutes of previous meetings etc. can be obtained from the Parish Council website on and you can e-mail them on .
