NEWS AND INFORMATION FROM THE PARISH COUNCIL

Binfield Heath's new Parish Council met on May 13. Hugh Lacey, Keith Maher, Elisabeth Ransom, Paul Rollason and Susan Summerland plus new member Sarah Fulton Urry, who replaces George Englefield, met with David Bartholomew, who is now our OCC and SODC representative.

Paul Rollason was elected chair and Elisabeth Ransom vice chair. Leigh Rawlins, a parish councillor in Sonning Common, shares the SODC role with David Bartholomew.


Village Day

The popular village get-together on the playground is back after a year off. It will take place from noon to 6pm and will feature the return of the wheelbarrow theme. Sign up in the shop, £10 per barrow with two competitors who will each receive a Loddon beer at the start and finish, and come along to the event to compete with others. The race is sponsored by the Bottle & Glass.

And while all this is going on, there's a BBQ, teas and cakes, plant stall, children's races and live music.

Put it in the diary!


Reporting issues round the parish

Fly-tipped rubbish continues to be a problem locally and has to be collected by District Council contractors at considerable extra cost to the taxpayer. If you see fly-tipping - or the results of it - please report it online to admin.southoxford@biffa.co.uk Similarly, potholes have been a big problem this year. If you are aware of one locally please contact fixmystreet.com and tell them the area, address if possible and postcode. It's the fastest way to get results.
