The Great British Spring Clean 2018

After very successful previous annual clean ups,Kingston Lisle and Fawler again took part in the “Great British Spring Clean” campaign to spring clean the parish for 2018.

We had a great turn out for this year. More than last year and such that we ran out of bacon butties for those hard workers who were last home. Sorry!! It is amazing how much litter accumulates in a year, even though there are many people who clear litter whenever they see it. As well as the usual cans, bottles and takeaway wrappers, this year’s haul included a road sign, several lengths of guttering and a carpet washing machine.
A big thank you to everyone who took part and thanks to Gill White for organizing the event and also to the Vale of White Horse council for providing equipment and removing the rubbish.

Defibrillator
We are very grateful to the SSEN’s Resilient Communities Fund for their grant which has enabled us to purchase a defibrillator for the village. Our new defibrillator has been installed on the front of the pub. It has been registered with South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) to be available to everyone with a cardiac emergency via 999.

Email Address List
Over 40% of homes in the village have logged their email address with the Parish Clerk. It would be great if many more people would add their name to the list.
• The list is administered and used under data protection rules.
• Messages are only sent out by the Parish Clerk, who uses blind copy (bcc) to make sure recipients don’t see each other’s email addresses.
• People on the list will receive useful and timely information on a range of topics – village meetings and events, village walks, forwarded messages from the police, council and utility providers, lost/found pets, electronic copy of The Blower (saving distribution leg work!), etc.
Please sign up by simply emailing your address to the parish clerk
