20’s Plenty for Us campaigns for 20mph as the default speed limit for urban and
village streets, where people live, work, shop, play and learn.

Brize Norton Parish Council would like to take part in this campaign.

To have your say, see details below



Welcome to the Christmas 2021 edition of our Parish Newsletter.                                                                                  

Life is slowly beginning to return to something more normal and we are beginning to see the slow emergence of village activities. Cricket has been played throughout the summer and the football season has already started. Clubs are back in the Elder Bank Hall, the BNS&SC has held a rounders tournament and The Humble Bumble Café is back to full capacity with Bev and her team busy organising their second Christmas Market.

The postponed Village Bash finally took place on Sunday, 19 September and what an afternoon, with a bumper number of people attending and a great amount of money raised. I’d like to thank all the volunteers for their hard work in putting the event together.

In the last Newsletter, I reported that we had held a Public Meeting with the RAF on their planning application to install a radar tower on the Tactical Medical Wing site off Carterton Road. This meeting was very well attended with over 60 people coming along to listen to the RAF’s presentation and to ask their own questions and express their views. Residents living on Burford Road, Manor Road and Brize Meadow got together and prepared a very detailed document that they presented at the Planning Meeting, which was held on Monday, 11 October. Unfortunately, the decision did not go our way and planning permission was granted. However, the PC will be reviewing the Conditions associated with this permission and ensure they are complied with. We are requesting another meeting with RAF Brize Norton to discuss what mitigation measures they will be putting in place to reduce the visual impact of the tower.

In October, Bloor Homes advised the Parish Council that they would be starting to landscape the northern section of the Mary Ellis Country Park. I thought that it would be a lovely idea if the children could somehow be involved with this, and Bloor Homes agreed. Friday, 12th November saw two groups of children from the primary school come up to the park, armed with wellies and spades, eight trees were planted by the children in the morning and ten trees planted in the afternoon by the older children. This later session began with a blessing of the area conducted by Rev Ian Howard. Our local M.P., Robert Courts, also came along to help with the planting, as well as our District Councillor Alex Postan. We all went home a lot muddier than we arrived, but I think everyone involved really enjoyed themselves. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bloor Homes for arranging the day and to their landscaping team who pre-dug the holes and then helped the children with the planting when it got a bit hard going for them.

As you will read later in the Newsletter, the Parish Council is supportive of the 20’s Plenty speed limit campaign and I hope you will take the opportunity to complete the online survey. For those who prefer, a copy of the survey will also be available in the Humble Bumble café.

I’m very pleased to let you know that we appointed a new Clerk in September, Mrs Jo Webb. Many of you may already know Jo as she held this role previously and she also helps out at the school. Welcome Jo!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people who keep this village looking good throughout the year. To Fred Bellenger for keeping the playing field looking so good and to him and his wife, Kath for keeping the war memorial looking beautiful. Also to Gary Jarvis, our handyman who keeps the shrubbery under control and carries out all the maintenance work that needs doing.

On behalf of the Brize Norton Parish Council, may I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

• The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee (2-5 June 2022)


In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, seventy years of service, having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 when Her Majesty was 25 years old.

Throughout the year, Her Majesty and members of the Royal Family will travel around the country to undertake a variety of engagements to mark this historic occasion culminating with the focal point of the Platinum Jubilee Weekend in June

An extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June, will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate the historic milestone. The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen’s 70 years of service.

Thursday 2nd June

The Queen’s Birthday Parade (Trooping the Colour): More than 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians will come together in the traditional Parade to mark The Queen’s official birthday, usually held on the second Saturday in June. Beginning at Buckingham Palace, the Parade will move down The Mall to Horse Guard’s Parade, joined by members of the Royal Family on horseback.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacons: The United Kingdom’s long tradition of  celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of beacons will be continued to mark the Platinum Jubilee. Beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories.

For the first time, beacons will also be lit in each of the capital cities of the Commonwealth countries to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We have signed up to take part in this and Tony Shillingford has kindly volunteered to do this again.

Friday 3rd June

Service of Thanksgiving: A Service of Thanksgiving for The Queen’s reign will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Saturday 4th June

The Derby at Epsom Downs: Her Majesty The Queen, accompanied by Members of the Royal Family, will attend the Derby at Epsom Downs.

Platinum Party at the Palace: The BBC will stage and broadcast a special live concert from Buckingham Palace that will bring together some of the world’s biggest entertainment stars to celebrate the most significant and joyous moments from The Queen’s seven decade reign.


Sunday 5th June

The Big Jubilee Lunch: Every year since the idea began in 2009 The Big Lunch has encouraged communities to
celebrate their connections and get to know each other a little bit better, coming together in a spirit of fun and friendship. In 2022 The Big Lunch will bring the Jubilee celebrations into the heart of every community.


People are invited to share friendship, food and fun with neighbours as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. A Big Jubilee Lunch can be big or small - street party or picnic, tea and cake or a garden barbeque.

The Platinum Jubilee Pageant: A pageant featuring over 5,000 people from across the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth will take place against the backdrop of Buckingham Palace and the surrounding streets. It will combine street arts, theatre, music, circus, carnival and costume and celebrate the service of Her Majesty’s reign, as well as honouring the collective service of people and communities across the country.
I would like to know your thoughts on what you would like to see Brize Norton do to celebrate this momentous occasion! Would you like:


• A Big Jubilee Lunch
• A Street Party
• A Jubilee Pageant
• Something else – please advise

If you would like to become a volunteer contact me via email w.way@brizenortonparishcouncil.co.uk or by mobile 07786 436263 by 15th December 2021. I will then arrange a meeting in January to begin the arrangements.

Brize Norton Primary School

We have had a couple of significant changes at our school recently.

The main corridor leading to the playground now has four enormous mythical beasts: a dragon, a griffin, a phoenix and a sprite, in honour of our four houses. The idea came from the School Council and the paintings have been wonderfully done by Jaweriah Mehmood, one of our parents.


A brave parachute jump!
Thank you so very much to everyone who sponsored Mrs Hunter to complete her parachute jump! We have had an anonymous donation of £1000 for which we are extremely grateful. Combining the donations for this event and the previous jump (which had to be abandoned due to Covid), we have raised a total of £3069!This money, plus help from the school association, means we finally have thirty new laptops for the children to use, enough for everyone in a class to have one each. This has already enabled us to teach word processing and typing, and I am looking forward to using them for computer programming later on in the year.

The Falcons and Voyagers classes held our annual Armistice Day commemoration on 11th  November. We started by reading reflections in the church before moving to the war memorial for the two minutes’ silence. Thank you very much to Mrs Bostock (and Mr Bostock too) for decorating the war memorial so well with the children’s work.


Christmas Productions

We are going ahead and preparing to do our Christmas productions as planned. The plan includes a smaller, socially-distanced audience and asking all audience members to wear masks unless they are exempt.


However, if we are unable to hold live performances because of covid, we will live-stream it rather than canceling so the children still have the fun of performing.

Tree planting

On Friday 12th November, groups of children planted trees in the new Mary Ellis Country Park on the Brize Meadow development. We did our bit for the local and global environment, got very muddy and had great fun. In the afternoon (when the older children had their turn) we were joined by members of the Parish Council, Robert Courts MP, Councillor Alex Postan, Rev Ian Howard and quite a few members of Mary Ellis’ family. A great time was had by all!

And finally, Farewell Miss Winter

We were very sad to say goodbye to Miss Winter today who has served the school in many roles over the years. We will miss you greatly but wish you luck in your next adventure.

Anna Anna Fairhurst (Headteacher)


Our fantastic new pre-school garden is now complete...

...and the children absolutely love playing outside whatever the weather. It really has made our garden a year round fun area for the children to explore, play and learn in.


Many thanks again to everyone who helped make this possible.

All of our new children have now started and settled into pre-school life. It’s been a fun filled first term at pre-school with harvesting our vegetables from the allotment, visits from a tractor for farm week and enjoying learning about our environment and recycling.


As we move into term 2 we are as busy as ever with planned visits from the local police, a dentist and a travelling Pantomime for a performance of Aladdin. We are also beginning to prepare for Christmas and our Nativity play in December.


Pre-school is full for the current academic year through to July 2022. We have extremely limited availability now from September 2022 onwards with some days and sessions already full.


Please contact us if you would like any more information regarding the pre-school. Our waiting list is arranged by date, siblings and villagers. There is lots of information, photos and a waiting list applications on our website www.brizenortonpreschool.co.uk

For those new to the village, pre-school operates from the Elder Bank Hall during term time, Monday-Thursday 9am-3pm and Friday 9am-12pm.

We offer places for children aged 2-4 years. Funding is available subject to certain terms and

Another year has almost passed and what a year it has been! Now with all the covid restriction slowly being lifted and both the sporting and social life of the village is getting back to somewhat close to normality.

Cricket returned during the summer, although a very welcome sight to see on the Rec, the season was not a great success as it saw the MLCC 3rd team relegated. However, there is always next year to come back fighting.


Football has also returned to a full fixture list, with a game at ‘home’ on most Saturday afternoons.

So please come along and support them.


We also saw the return of the Village Bash, what a great success and thank you to all who supported the event but also supported the S&SC bar!


NEW to the sporting calendar was the introduction of the BNS&SC Rounders Championship, a family event which, although starting with only six teams, proved to be a very enjoyable afternoon’s entertainment. This, I am sure, will become an annual event (most likely to be held in early September) and we would welcome new village-based sides to join us next year.
The Bonfire Night proved to be another very successful village event. A big thank you to Ian Pearson for the magnificent bonfire, and to all those who supported the event and our bar! Very much appreciated.
Newsflash: It is hoped that the new roofed pergola at the pavilion will be ready for use early in the new year.


This will allow the S&SC along with Humble Bumble Café to start to hold more social events. There are some already in the pipeline and once confirmed we will advertise it with posters and on social media.

Planning for the summer
Would anyone be interested in playing ‘Aunt Sally’? Depending on interest, our hope is to have a team(s) playing on a Thursday evening throughout next summer. Let us know!

Lastly, may I, on behalf of the S&SC members, wish you all a very happy Christmas and a healthy and peaceful 2022.

Many thanks

It has been a very tough season so far for the Club both on and off the field.

A few weeks ago the Committee held an Emergency meeting to discuss the withdrawal of one or both teams
from the League.

Thankfully (at least for the time being) with the hard work and determination of the Managers Jake Farrugia and Adam Harris the Club is continuing with two teams.

Unfortunately, games have had to be forfeited with the main problem being player numbers and commitment. Following the meeting and some changes off the field, it was pleasing that games went ahead and fingers crossed this will continue.

On the field with the cancellation of games by both teams, points have been dropped.

The 1sts currently sit rooted to the bottom of Division 1 although 10th place sounds much better. Sadly, they have also exited the Junior Shield and Fred Ford Cup.

The Reserves sit in 4th place in Division 3 and are still to play in the Jack Busby Cup. We thank the Managers and players who have helped keep things moving and hopefully in the next newsletter we will have a much more positive report.

If anyone is looking to play, or knows anyone who is please contact the club or go along to training on Tuesdays at the Carterton ATP between 8 and 9pm.

With a blink of an eye summer has passed and we are now speeding towards Christmas!                                                      

As I write this it always amazes me just how much has happened since our last newsletter! With the ongoing challenges we all continue to face such as returning to school, work, going out ‘out’ - we continue to hear your stories, share the highs and the lows, come together to raise money, celebrate events and plot and plan the year ahead amongst a frenzy of baking, barista’ing and chatting!


Harry and (Leo otherwise engaged!) collecting his prize after guessed the weight of this enormous pumpkin (kindly donated by Mr Gidlow) …130kg!  £65 raised, to go towards our outdoor Christmas tree!


We continue to support a number of both local and national charities, this year you raised almost £500 for Macmillan - huge thank you to all involved!

The return of many outdoor events has brought its challenges to us all but so much fun and laughter along the way! After all the trauma of COVID, this summer our wonderful village was finally able to again hold our annual Big Bash, Bonfire night and for the first time a Families rounders day!

The Big Bash was a joy to see and felt like we were almost on the set of Midsummer Murders… luckily without any murders! Huge thank you to all involved who helped with the planning, setting up, running the day and as always our fab community for joining in.

Bev Campion


Thank you to everyone who supported the bonfire evening; the Parish Council who helped promote the event, the Pearson family and to everyone who came along and bought soup and hotdogs - we were sorry that we had to disappoint some people as we sold out of both.

Thank you also for all those making donations for the T4U Christmas shoe box appeal. We made up and sent off 29 complete boxes from the school, village and church donations.

Bright and Colourful - Thank You! To the lovely Judy Gush

Judy, very kindly planted over 1500 daffodil bulbs on 14th November on the village recreational ground. No doubt they are all going to look spectacular in Spring!

Thank you Judy

Dedication and Devotion - Thank you to the Bellengers

I think you can all agree, the village war memorial is looking exceptionally proud and we would like to thank the Bellengers who have been dedicating a lot of time and hard work to make sure the memorial remains a fitting tribute to the people from the village, who gave their lives in service of the country during war time.

On behalf of the people of Brize Norton,

Thank you

Additional Defibrillator

The Parish Council received news from a generous benefactor that they would like to provide the village with a second defibrillator that is to be sited at the Masons Arms on Burford Road.


It will be in a position which is accessible to anyone at any time of the day or night and is for public access and is a gift to the village.

This will be fitted in the not-too-distant future.

The Parish Council would like to pass on its sincere thanks for this generous gift



Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

This is all set up online and is waiting for approval before it can go live.

Councillor Vacancy

The Parish Council is hoping to co-opt a new Councillor at their December meeting.


Mary Ellis Country Park

Bloor Homes is in the process of landscaping the new Country Park with new native tree and shrub planting, with large areas to be sown as wildflower meadow. Nearly 400 trees are to be planted across the Development as a whole, the majority of which will be located in the Country Park. Species will include Beech, Silver Birch, Field Maple, Hornbeam, Rowan, Hazel, Cherry and Poplar.


As part of these landscaping works, Bloor Homes was delighted to help facilitate the tree planting events, involving local school children from Brize Norton Primary School on Friday, 12th November.

The events were attended by a number of Bloor Home personnel who are involved with the new Brize Meadow Development including Managing Director Steve Roberts who said:

“We don’t just build homes, we create places
where people love to live for generations to come
and that’s why initiatives such as tree planting are
so important.

The children worked really hard to plant so many trees today and we hope that this becomes a special place for them to play and enjoy for many years.”

Bloor Homes intends to complete the first phase of The Mary Ellis Country Park by Spring next year.


20mph speed limit for Brize Norton?

Oxfordshire County Council is changing its approach and acceptance of 20mph restrictions which will enable a much greater coverage across Oxfordshire.


Their proposal is aimed to:
• make streets safer
• encourage residents to walk or cycle
• reduce noise and pollution

This initiative will not be compulsory and will therefore need to be supported by the Parish Council and the local County Councillor.

Measures supported will be from a simple change of speed signs to more complex solutions in areas that can range from a whole village or a single street. Speed cameras and road humps will not be used.

The introduction of 20mph restrictions in other areas has already cut speeds and accidents.


The introduction of 20mph restrictions in other areas has already cut speeds and accidents.


A proposal for this new approach was approved by OCC on Tuesday 19 October.

Your OCC County Councilor, Nicholas Field-Johnson, and Brize Norton Parish Council is supportive of the ‘20’s Plenty’ campaign to introduce a 20mph speed limit in various built- up areas of our village. However, to enable us to pursue this scheme, we initially need your feedback as to whether you support it or not.

 We would appreciate you spending just    a few minutes of your time to complete a simple questionnaire which can be found at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/STK7LFH However, you may wish to complete a ‘paper’ version of this survey in which case, you will find the relevant forms in the Humble Bumble Café. The closing date for this survey is Sunday, 19th December 2021.

Thank you for your support in making our village a safer place to live.
