Pictures from todays egg hunt. All extremely well organised by the Social Committee, with the Rotary in Rissington in attendance. I couldn’t believe the stack of eggs being given away (I believe over 600 large eggs as well as Cadburys caramels).
We all know that Upper Rissington is privileged to have a huge bird population, whether pigeons, rooks or starlings (even loads of Kites). The dawn chorus is getting louder at this time of the years as they go about increasing their population, with mating calls. Here are some in our garden, the starlings are nesting […]
I like that word remediation. Much of what is known as Victory Fields was built on a RAF technical site (which means, work shops, stores, hangars etc). During the last 10 years, my wife and I must have taken over 4000 – 5000 photographs of the transition process from military base to housing estate. Some […]
Grafitti – Moreton-In-Marsh Police have received a number of similar report of the same type of graffiti in orange paint, with some now reported in Blockley. PC Nick Westmacott wants to apologise for naming Chipping Campden school individually in one of the reports. Police will be looking at all schools once they return after school […]
Will add the route later. The pictures were taken as I left the village towards Phipps Farm. I then I took the footpath towards Gawcombe. From there, steered south to Church Westcote and back into Rissi. Collected a bag of rubbish on the main road before routing through Folland Park.
Great website for all those considering becoming a councillor. https://beacouncillor.co.uk Is it the state of the local park, the need for more activities for young people, improving services for older people, making the roads safer or ensuring that local businesses can thrive? Whatever needs changing in your neighbourhood, you could be just the person to […]

The Rotary Club of the Rissington’s spotted being refuelled. Great to see raised gardens being constructed behind the pre-school area for the children of Rissington School. Thanks to all involved giving up their free time to make the village better!
A bimble round Victory Fields, nothing really new. Pumping water out of Rissington Lake. Removal of EMG digger Strange to see no street sign on Beechcraft Road or Crescent Rissi Lake – pictures with two Ducks on it.
Avtar Construction are busy raising drains and manholes ready for the final coat of tarmac. Unfortunately, a number of kerb stones have been broken, so these have to be done, otherwise it was looking good for tomorrow. Tarmac now scheduled for 29th April. Not long to wait now….
Three years ago, we thought that this castle was going to be demolished. It was highlighted by various residents and the BBC even came out to interview those very same residents. I will upload the article and the photos when I find them. Consequently, Jason Corban who was on the Parish Council (PC) at the […]
If you have never been, I would suggest a visit to Hidcote Gardens. Especially, when it warms, up you can have a great picnic. There are also two cafe’s and two shops, including the opportunity to buy plants.
The tennis courts will be cleared of debris on the 23rd April 2019. Resurfacing and fencing is planned from the 2nd May 2019. Which in summary means the PUBLIC OPEN SPACE programme has begun. Good news indeed…

Planning – allotment access revised and finalisation of the POS […]
