Issue no. 142

Chairman's Report

This edition of the Newsletter is packed with information from the many activities that take place in the village. Details of past events and details of forthcoming events are included in these few pages. I am always amazed by the host of activities and the endless variety of the events the many willing volunteers organise for the benefit of all parishioners. In the following pages we have details of the many staff changes at the Primary School and reports on the schools activities. We wish all new members of staff and the new pupils every success.

A major change this year is the re-branding and change of day for the now named “Village Day” on Sunday the 24th August - full details are contained within these pages. Please come along and enjoy what promises to be a full day’s entertainment for all age groups.

A new bright yellow box has appeared on the Elderbank Hall, it contains a defibrillator which has been donated to the village. This important piece of equipment could one day save the life of someone close to you. A training/information session has been arranged and more detailed information is contained in this newsletter. Also in this newsletter are the emerging details of a ceremony to mark the centenary of the “Great War”.

700 Houses: Oh no not again!
I make no apology for yet again bringing up the threat of the application by Christchurch College to build a large housing estate in the village. This has been rumbling on for over five years and it would appear matters are shortly to be brought to a head. The Brize Norton Action Group (BNAG) article in this newsletter explains fully the current state of play. The Parish Council will continue to represent the views expressed at meetings and in feedback to surveys carried out in the village.

I have today received a copy of the West Oxfordshire District Council “Creating Futures” magazine in which the Leader of the Council states about the new draft local plan “In this draft, our Council is addressing the need for more housing while protecting and enhancing the District we all know and love. Consultation is under way and I would urge you to have your say.” On page three of the magazine it states “the council recognises the need to provide an adequate buffer between Carterton and Brize Norton Village”. Many of you will re-call the Country Park, Kilkenny Lane and Monahan Way was to be the buffer and prevent further urban sprawl to prevent coalescence of Carterton and Brize Norton. Make your views known in response to this consultation. Do not allow

West Oxfordshire District Councillors to think they can get away with a previous Tory Prime Ministers assertion that “Consultation was telling the electorate what you are going to do”



Operation Christmas Child is the world’s largest children’s Christmas project run by the Christian relief and development organisation Samaritan’s Purse. Make a special connection with a child overseas – give a shoebox gift from your hands into theirs. You can fill your own shoebox gift or make donations of gifts (collection boxes in St Britius Church) that can be used to fill decorated medium sized shoe boxes that are then sent overseas to children in need. The deadline for the boxes to be made up is Sunday 9 November. Look out for further information on the notice boards or contact Carolyn on 01993 844102.


We have a small charity in the village which pays out a small gift to Pensioners and Widows at Christmas. The money comes from rent from a field which was given to the village. If you haven’t received a gift before and think you now qualify please let me know, Fred Bellenger (1 Daubigny Mead, telephone 841189) before Friday 5 December 2014. This is available to Brize Norton residents only.

The Parish Council would like to thank Fred Bellenger, Chris Thorne and
Rev James Maddern for continuing to serve as trustees of this charity and for organising the Christmas gifts.


Details of repatriations are usually received on a Monday. Notices will be displayed on the village notice boards at the earliest opportunity. Further details may be found on the Oxfordshire County Council web site. Please note timings are always subject to change.


Witney - We meet at Witney’s Windrush Leisure Centre at 10 am on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. There is no charge. We do two walks; one is 1-2 miles long, the other 2-3 miles both ending up with a cup of coffee. For more information ring Joy on 01993 842373.

Carterton - On Monday, Thursday and Saturday we meet at the Town Hall, Carterton at 10am. The walks are 1–2 miles long. For more information contact Barbara Goudal on 01993 845923


The news that the Christ Church/Bloor application was going out for public consultation yet again together with the fact that the 700 houses form part of the new draft Local Plan - also currently out for public consultation - prompted immediate action from BNAG. Volunteers worked ceaselessly knocking on the door of every house in the village offering template letters objecting to both the Bloor application and the draft Local Plan and inviting signatures on a petition. The response was excellent and, on 12 August, Clive Homer delivered nearly 200 template letters to WODC objecting to the Bloor/Christ Church application. In addition, many villagers promised to send in their own letters of objection. At the time of writing we have over 200 signatures on the petition.

There is still time to write or email planning.policy@westoxon.gov.uk) objecting to the draft Local Plan. Comments must arrive no later than 5.00pm Friday 19 September.

WODC are holding an exhibition regarding the draft Local Plan at Carterton Town Hall from 2.00pm to 7.00pm on Thursday 4 September. Go along and have your say! The planners need to know the strength of our opposition. The revised Bloor/Christ Church application includes a car showroom, pub, community centre, new school and an employment area. They want the houses to be in the William Morris 'arts and crafts' style, totally out of character with our village which is predominantly Cotswold stone.

It is vitally important we all take this last opportunity to write expressing our views even if you have already signed a template letter. After all, what effect will the 700 houses have on property prices, especially those homes in the immediate vicinity? What are the implications of a new school being built so close to our award winning primary school? What about all the increased traffic through our village and on the already gridlocked A40? Finally, how do you feel about living next to a vast building site for the next ten years? To those of you who say 'it's a done deal' the answer is it will be if we do nothing.


So get writing or emailing now!

BNAG will be at the forthcoming Village Day. See us there if you have not yet signed the petition or completed a template letter re the draft Local Plan. You will also be able to express your feelings towards Bloor Homes in our fund raising game of skill!

We are awaiting a date from WODC for the site visit and this will appear on the website as soon as it is known. If you would like to join our 'silent demonstration' please 'phone or email me. We need significant numbers to impress the Councillors! The all-important hearing for the 700 houses is expected in September when we will need a large turnout from the village to demonstrate our solidarity. Once again, keep an eye on the website (www.savebrizevillage.co.uk) and village noticeboards for more information. There is also an online petition for you to sign and add a brief comment which may be accessed via www.savebrizevillage.co.uk.

So after what seems an eternity, this matter is now reaching a climax and our actions over the next few weeks will hopefully influence the outcome.

To summarise:
1 Write/email WODC objecting to the 700 houses forming part of the draft Local Plan
2 Go along to Carterton Town Hall on 4 September and tell the planners what you think
3 Join us for the 'silent demonstration' during the site visit
4 Join us when the application is decided upon at Witney in September.

So let us all make one last big effort to save our village from being swallowed up and becoming an extension of Carterton. Please follow the four steps above - after all, apathy is a gift for the planners!

We have been raising much needed funds by doing the teas for the Gardens Open Day and also we had a Table Top Sale at the Tolsey in Burford and a Car Boot stall at Ducklington.  Many thanks to all who have helped us to do these.  The Craft Club are busy making items for our sale at Shilton Old School on Saturday 1 November at 2pm so good luck with that.

Have you noticed the yellow box on the Elderbank Hall wall adjacent to the recreation ground? The Parish Council are indebted to the anonymous donor who has made provision of this facility to our village and 23 other units in West Oxfordshire.

So that people have confidence in using the unit, should the need arise, we have arranged a training evening on Tuesday 16 September in The Elderbank Hall from 7.30pm to 9.00pm. Please contact the clerk (844102) if you would like to take part.

Thank you also to Stuart Finlayson for giving up his time to install the unit.

If you have a little more time perhaps you may consider:

Do you want to make a difference and give something back to the people in your local community when they need you the most?

You could make a difference by providing emergency life-saving skills to a member of your community until an emergency ambulance arrives.

Community First Responders are volunteers that are trained and equipped by the ambulance service to answer certain types of medical emergencies in their local communities while the ambulance is on its way. There is good evidence to suggest that if people are trained to help someone while the ambulance is on the way, more lives are saved, and because the volunteers operate in their neighbourhoods there is every possibility they will arrive before the ambulance and these seconds and minutes can make all the difference.

All you need to join is to be over 18, have a full driving licence and pass an enhanced criminal records’ check and be willing and able to give up some free time to help your community.

We are currently looking for volunteers in and across West Oxfordshire. If you would like to help in this literally life-saving and very rewarding project please e-mail cfr@scas.nhs.uk for an information pack or call our 24-hour hotline on 0800 587 0207.

Thank you


We have had ever such a busy year! After saying goodbye to Mr Mark Smith at Christmas, we then had to say two more goodbyes – to Mrs Gemma Challender and Mrs Emma Addinell, as they went on maternity leave in February; these teachers have both left the school permanently. Mrs Helen Cox went on maternity leave in November and came back to us in July; Mrs Gemma Jobson came to work with us from February until July and, in addition, we’ve had to ask almost all of our teachers to move classrooms or work for more days in the week than they used to
On top of that, our cleaner, Mrs Melanie Jones (who has kept the school spotless for so many years) has left the school this summer, as she and her family are moving to Cornwall! This summer, I will also be leaving the school as I am heading off to New Zealand for a few months; it was not an easy decision to leave, but I feel that the time is right for me and for the school and I hope to stay in touch with the school.

Although we are sad to say goodbye to the people who have left this year, we are also pleased to be welcoming some lovely new members of staff: Miss Claire Musgrave will be staying on at the school as the Year 6 teacher and we have appointed Mrs Cheryl Thornton to start in September as Year 5 teacher. Our new Cleaner, Mrs Alison Mayhew, will be starting in the summer and our new Office Assistant, Mrs Lisa Poyser, will be starting in September.

This September will also see us welcome our new headteacher, Mrs Anna Fairhurst. Mrs Fairhurst is keen to take on the challenge of keeping our wonderful village school as the cheerful, productive and uniquely special place that we know it is. I know that Mrs Fairhurst values the role that the school plays in the community and that she will welcome your support in the coming year. I wish her the best of luck.

At the end of last term we said our fond farewells to the Year 6 children, who are heading on to new and exciting adventures next year! We are all very proud of their achievements at this school and hope to hear from them in the future, as I am sure that each and every one of them will do something worth sharing! Good luck!

This time last year, we told you that the school was kindly gifted a piece of land at the front of Moat Close and we updated you about some of the work that had gone in to preparing this and turning it into a Story Garden, using ideas from the children. We have really made the most of it this year and you may have seen groups of children out there working hard on various projects, or telling stories to one another under the shade of the trees. We really do think it is quite a magical place and I would like to say thank you to all of the people who helped us to turn this into a reality. I am sure that it will be enjoyed for many years to come.

I would like to thank everyone who supported the summer fete this year. We prayed for good weather, but unfortunately we had one of the rainiest afternoons of the summer!

Nevertheless, we had a good turn-out and the event raised about £1,600 which will be used to provide additional opportunities for the children in school. As ever the School Association work tirelessly to provide events for children, families and the community – you will see some of them manning the barbeque on the 24th August.

The first big event of the next academic year is the autumn term quiz night which is taking place in October – look out for posters advertising the date. For more information contact Jo Rushton on 01993 844726.

For the first three months of the Great War in August-December 1914 many young men from towns and villages rushed to ‘do their bit’ for King and Country but also for the thrill of adventure. Brize Norton men, of all ages, were amongst them and here is a list of them who left the village to fight during those three months. Charles Archer; Ernest, George and William Bellenger; Albert Blackwell; Charles and Frank Cambray; Aubrey and John Castle; Albert, Jacob and William Drinkwater; Frederick Eeles; George and William Garratt; Henry Godwin; Richard, Frederick and Henry Hunt; Albert Johnson; Cecil Kekewich; Albert Packer; James and Albert Parker; Alfred, Frederick, Richard and Ewart Phipps; Howell, David and Thomas Powell; Thomas Sanders; Edward Sturges; Edward, Albert, Henry, Mark and William Timms; Harry and William Tovey; James, Joseph and John Upstone; John and Joseph Winfield. Nine of those men are noted on our War Memorial as casualties. That was 45 men, born or living in Brize Norton, who joined up in the first three months of war. How many more from the village would do so during the next four years? 

On Friday 7 November a ceremony to unveil the village centenary memorial, a colonnade of 18 Lombardy Poplars together with an etched plaque mounted on a Cotswold stone plinth on the Recreation Ground will take place at 2pm. There will be contributions by the school children in the ceremony and the Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, Tim Stevenson will also be in attendance together with other invited guests from the forces and Royal British Legion. We have also invited representatives from West Oxfordshire District Council and Smiths of Bletchingdon who have generously supported the project. Everyone from the village community is welcome to attend the event. Look out for the posters on the notice boards/detail on the website.
