RSS feeds for Charlbury Website
The news, events and forum pages on the Charlbury Website now have RSS feeds.
If you know what an RSS feed is you'll know why this is useful; if not, it's a way to keep track of the latest site updates without having to revisit the site every single time. Many newspaper websites, the BBC, and so on also provide feeds. You'll need a "feed-reader" (built into Internet Explorer 7 and recent versions of Safari and Firefox) to use them.

Oxfordshire County Council survives
Oxford City Council's proposal to split Oxfordshire into three unitary authorities has been rejected by the Government.
The City Council wanted three single-tier councils - North Oxfordshire, South Oxfordshire and Oxford City - to replace the current two tiers of county and district. West Oxfordshire District Council and Oxfordshire County Council were both opposed to the City Council plan, but other district councils had given it qualified support.

Charlbury's Own Cinema takes on the multiplexes
In an attempt to make you think twice before leaping into the car to see a film in Banbury or Oxford, Charlbury's Own Cinema is continuing to offer things you can't get elsewhere. Choc already produces specially written 'fun sheets', containing a quiz and trivia for every film it shows. Now Choc is also holding a free raffle at every showing, where you can win two tickets to the next film. The first free tickets were given away at Choc's sold-out showings of 'The Queen' on Sunday 11 March; the lucky winners won tickets to see the breathtaking animated masterpiece 'Whisper of the Heart' on Sunday 15 April.
The Bell has given strong support to this community enterprise by opening the bar in the Cornbury room before screenings and even providing home-made popcorn. (Thanks Natalie.)
For information about Choc see the Community Page of this website.
