In line with the
majority of other Parish Councils, Ovingham have introduced a new
format to their meetings. Each meeting will commence with an “open
surgery” where issues can be raised by residents before the meeting
starts. Such issues can of course, be brought to the attention of
any of the Councillors or Clerk before then.
Councillors are looking
at the possibility of introducing a village newsletter – it’s at
the early stage but they are keen to do so.
Whilst the Councillors
recognise that the majority of dog owners are responsible, in an
attempt to encourage others to clean up after their pets, free doggie
bags will be available at various points in the village, including by
the Playing Fields and entrances to the Dene as well as the Village
Assurances are being
sought that the pedestrian bridge will remain open whilst repair work
is done next year and that it will be “off limits” to cycling,
(they must dismount to cross which they should do anyway).
near the Pack Horse Bridge will be reset next year. In the meantime,
please be aware of the dangers in using them especially when with children.
There will be no
meeting in August but the September meeting will be Thursday 19th
September at 7.15pm.
Davenport Clerk to Ovingham Parish Council
