Do you know of any unpaid carers in Horley?

‘This year the High Sheriff of Oxfordshire is Mrs Sarah Taylor.  She has chosen to make her theme for the year the plight of unpaid carers in Oxfordshire.  Apparently, across the county there are very many people who have been forced to give up work in order to care for someone else.  She is working with a group called Carers Oxfordshire, whose role is to provide support to people working as unpaid carers.

The parish council is not aware of anyone in this position, but if there is and they would like to speak to Carers Oxfordshire, if they contact me I will put them in touch.’ David Marriott

Parish Council Tidying Up the Village Saturday July 9th

TidyUp2[1]The Parish Council has agreed to carry out some work to tidy up the area of land at Wroxton Lane, next to the Old Council Houses and opposite Horley Mill.

Oxfordshire County Council has confirmed that this land is public highway, but it is not covered by any maintenance contract.  Consequently the Parish Council has decided to act in order to tidy the land up. The work is planned to take place on Saturday 9 July.

The Community Transport ‘Dial A Ride’ Scheme is set to Continue…

Dial_a_Ride_roundel.svg[1]Good News – ‘Dial A Ride’ is saved from cuts!

With the weekly free bus service to Banbury due to end shortly, the Parish Council is concerned that any residents without their own private transport may find it more difficult to get around. Consequently it was good news when Banbury and District Dial-a-Ride announced that they have funding to continue their service.  They provide help in getting around to those who have mobility issues, or who cannot drive and have no access to public transport.  Anyone interested in knowing more about their service should call the coordinator, Kevyn Powell on 07798 922712.

Thanks to Horley Parish Council

After many years of errosion and damage we now have a kerb to protect the grass verge on upper Wroxton Lane.  The repair and widening of the road should also mean that water will flow into the drains and provide a little more space for passing parked cars.

Thank you again Horley Parish Council, what a difference it has made already, Debra

Kerbing Scheme Completion – work to restart on Thursday Feb 11th

Work to complete the Wroxton Lane kerbing scheme is expected to take up to 3 days starting from Thursday February 11th

road closed

This will involve the contractor laying the correct colour conservation kerbs.

Once again, during this time the road will be closed to through traffic but with access to frontages and for emergency vehicles, and no parking along the section affected.

The contractor has apologised for the inconvenience caused by his mistake and thanks you for your patience. The end is in sight!
