Eden Enterprises (Litter)

Posted on

Eden is an initiative started in Little Rissington to clear their streets of litter. I only discovered Eden Enterprises today by accident and their initiative matches mine in Upper Rissington. Personally, I have collected bags of rubbish on the Upper Rissington access roads and therefore understand why those in Little Rissington have adopted the Eden […]

The old village is managed by the Parish Council and their contractor West Oxfordshire District Council cut the PC’s responsible areas. The […]

Posted on

There are two new sites for dropped kerbs on Delfin Way. I don’t see the benefit of either of these placements, unless the 24 houses that were planned are constructed. To build them they have had to cut into the newly laid top coat of tarmac. Copyright secured by Digiprove © 2019 Jerry Flint

The Delfin Way wildflower meadow….

Posted on

The planned area for 24 houses off Delfin Way is looking rather unkept, in comparison to previous years. It’s clearly been left like this intentionally, for the wild flowers. My only comment is that it would be nice for the edges to be cut as a minimum. What do you think, should it be cut […]

There’s gold in them there hills!
