Repeat Prescriptions - Easter bank holiday

Please remember to order your repeat prescriptions.

Please order repeat prescriptions in good time to avoid running out over the Easter bank holiday.  Some pharmacies, but not all, will be open over the Easter weekend, most for reduced hours. Healthwatch Oxfordshire has a full list here: The quickest and most effecient way to order a repeat prescription is by using the NHS App.  Thank you.  Charlbury Patient Participation Group

Easter Lilies - Remember your loved ones with a lily

Festivals and holidays often call to mind those loved ones no longer with us.

This year, why not remember a loved one by ordering an “Easter Lily” to be used in the St Mary's Church decorations on April 9th, Easter Day. Your loved one’s name will be commemorated in the St Mary’s weekly Messenger for Easter Day and on the notice board.

To buy a lily for £5, please get in touch with the church office at St Mary’s with your details and the name of the person/s you would like remembered. You will then be given details of how to pay.

Please email us on by March 26th.

Many thanks

Changes to Parking Enforcement

There has been some discussion on the Forum recently regarding parking enforcement, so I thought that residents would like to see the letter which has been sent to councillors in West Oxfordshire and to the Town and Parish councils today.  This explains the system, how you will be able to report illegally parked vehicles online without waiting for a warden to appear, and how you can provide feedback to the enforcement team.
