Please contact Sarah Smith or Theresa Goss if you require information or if you wish to put an item on the website.
A VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS
TO EVERYONE IN MILCOMBE
Hands off the Oxfordshire Countryside!
CPRE Oxfordshire has launched a joint e-petition with Rural Oxfordshire Action Rally (ROAR) to ask Eric Pickles and our local MPs to end the unrestrained development in the county.
It calls for a number of changes, including an end to the unfair penalties faced by local communities when a District does not have an up to date 5 Year Housing Supply.
The Parish Council would encourage as many people as possible to sign the petition. If you would like to do so, please click on this link.
Milcombe village may loose their local newsletter ‘The Dove’ as they know it.
Unfortunately Angie Woodard, Alan Wilson and Ivor McCullagh are no longer able to continue to produce ‘The Dove’. This is a great shame for us in the village as it has been running for a good many years now.
It is a part of our community. If you don’t use it – you loose it!!
“Most people will now be aware, that to date, no volunteers have come forward to run the bi-monthly village magazine “The Dove”.
At the last Parish Council it was agreed, until volunteers come forward, that a simplified monthly newsletter would be published.
This will be in a 4 sided – A3 size.
All village organisations and individuals are asked to email short reports, using Microsoft Words or compatible format, which will be cut and pasted into the newsletter.
As before the closing date will be the 18th of each month and everyone should take note that there will not be RE-MINDERS….if it is not received by the 18th it will be included in the next months’ issue.
The email address for contributions will be MNL2015@outlook.com
Distribution: – previously ‘The Dove’ has been distributed by a loyal band of volunteers, and we hope that when ‘The Dove’ is recommenced that these volunteers will again be available, however the MILCOMBE NEWS LETTER will be available at the Church; Village Hall; Horse and Groom and Village Shop.
Should any resident still wish to receive a delivered copy please call 01295 721158.
The final issue of The Dove covers the months of December 2014 and January 2015. Therefore the first issue of Milcombe News Letter will be FEBRUARY 2015 - The closing date for contributions – 18th January 2015.
