Unfortunately, Lou Moore has resigned as Parish Councillor and she will be sorely missed. Lou wants to focus on helping local groups such as the Toddlers and Playing Fields Committee. Early days yet but it is hoped that someone will be co-opted soon.
The Parish Council have ordered two new litter bins – one to
replace that which was vandalised by the Church bus stop and also to
put one by the gate into the field opposite the First School. It is
hoped that the latter will help with dog fouling which continues to
be a wide problem. There are instances of dog waste bags being used
but left by the paths or hanging from bushes/branches. The dog warden
will also be monitoring the problem. Please contact the Parish
Council if there is an area in the village which is particularly bad.
As an experiment, Green Ovingham will be sowing wild flowers in
parts of the village – Horsley Road and on the Playing Fields and a
small area on Castle View by the steps to the river. Depending on its
success, more areas may be used next year.
The meeting in May is on the 19th at 7.15pm which is
also the Annual meeting of the Parish Council.
Clerk to Ovingham Parish Council
