Transport to COVID 19 vaccines in Carterton on Saturday, 3rd April

Anyone wanting to request transport help from All Together In Charlbury (ATIC) in order to get to Carterton for a second COVID vaccine on Saturday, 3rd April who has not already made a booking, should ring our call centre on 01993 776277 no later than 12.30 p.m. on Thursday, 1 April. After that our call centre will not be staffed until Tuesday, 6 April due to the Easter bank holiday weekend break.

Otherwise, if you cannot avoid making a last-minute request, please use the ATIC mobile number 07487 413892 - but this is the only time this number should be used.

Anyone wanting to ask for transport for any other day should phone 01993 776277 in the normal way (9.00 to 1.00 p.m. Mon - Fri) -( messages can be left on the answerphone, as necessary.)

For those who will be driving themselves to Carterton Health Centre, ATIC suggests that the best route is to go via Burford. (As you may know, the road to Witney via Finstock railway bridge is still closed.) But please note that Market Street is due to be closed for Gigaclear work from 30 March, so the Burford road (Dyers Hill and past the station) will need to be accessed via Nine Acres Lane and then Thames Street.

If you would like an annotated map of Carterton town centre (also containing directions via Burford), you can download one from the ATIC page in the Community section of this website (Charity and World) or email charlburyalltogether@gmail.com. There are also copies at Cornerstone at the Corner House.

23rd Annual Charlbury Beer Festival

The 23rd annual Charlbury Beer Festival will take place on Saturday 4 September at Charlbury Cricket Club, Oxfordshire from 12 noon to 10pm. We have decided our usual June slot is too close to the re-opening of events nationwide, but feel we all still deserve a special day’s entertainment, especially as we cancelled the 2020 event.

The Beer Festival raises money for community projects, both in the Charlbury area and overseas. We have now taken our total of funds raised for good causes to well over £250,000. How amazing is that? There have been donations to fifty local organisations, ranging from Charlbury Primary School and the town’s Pre-School, to local sports clubs, Charlbury’s Day Centre and Community Centre, and twelve overseas projects in Africa, India and South America.

On the day, we hope to be able to incorporate around 50 real ales, a variety of craft beers, a range of ciders and perries, wine, gin, and Pimm’s; a great selection of food; live music throughout; the Culture Club tent with its varied programme of performances and talks; children’s entertainment; PLUS high-octane sport with the 10th World Aunt Sally Singles Championships – can Abingdon’s Phil Adams retain his crown? Naturally, this will all be subject to government guidelines and the state of the pandemic in early September. At the moment, things do seem promising.

We must thank those generous sponsors who finance the beers and the entertainment tents, and of course, the beers themselves, plus the many hours that committee members and other volunteers put in. Cheers all round!

Charlbury Cricket Club provides a glorious setting, just across the road from Charlbury Station. There are excellent all-day (including late night) bus and train services to and from Charlbury to Oxford, Chipping Norton, Reading, Witney, Worcester and London, so you don’t even need to drive if you want to have a drink.

For further details, please visit the Charlbury Beer Festival website at:

Transport to COVID 19 vaccine locations

All Together In Charlbury (ATIC) is again looking at how it can help Charlbury residents who have been called for a COVID vaccine at a location to which they need private transport. If you are in this position and cannot call on a family member or friend to get you to your vaccine, call our usual call centre number 01993 776277 (9.00 to 1.00 Mon-Fri or leave an answerphone message) and we will see what we can do. Please give us as much notice of a request, as you can (but we know that you can only do this when you have been contacted yourself!).

We have worked hard to set up appropriate COVID19-safe (Hands, Face, Space) systems and procedures which we need drivers and passengers to follow and there is a reasonable mileage charge of 45p per mile (hardship funding available).

Our call centre number again is 01993 776277 – this will get you to Volunteer Link-Up staff who kindly help us deal with requests.

For those who will be driving themselves to Carterton Health Centre, ATIC suggests that the best route is to go via Burford. (As you may know, the road to Witney via Finstock railway bridge is still closed.) But please note that Market Street is due to be closed for Gigaclear work from 30 March, so the Burford road (Dyers Hill and past the station) will need to be accessed via Nine Acres Lane and then Thames Street.

The History of Charlbury through...the National Agricultural Labourers Union

Life was hard for the rural poor in the late 1800s: they worked very long hours in all weathers for low wages. The 1871 Trade Unions Act permitted the formation of unions but forbade anyone stopping workers from entering a workplace. Following local meetings, the National Agricultural Labourer’s Union was established on 29 May 1872. The subscription was 2d a week and by the end of 1873 it had over 100,000 members. Women were not eligible to join though many worked in the fields. Its Chairman was Joseph Arch, a Methodist preacher who had been an agricultural labourer himself. He started work aged 9 as a crow scarer working a 12 hour day for 4 old pence.

Many Charlbury men worked as labourers on the land, some highly skilled. The census of 1871 recorded, among many others, that Thomas Kearsey farmed 115 acres employing 2 men and 1 boy at Dustfield Farm, John Walker farmed 165 acres employing 6 men and 1 boy at Lees Rest Farm, and Thomas Padbury farmed 240 acres with 4 labourers and 2 boys at Church Lane Farm. (1)

On 22 March 1873 a meeting was held in a barn at the back of The Bell, chaired by Mr H. Benfield, watchmaker, urging all labourers who had not joined the NALU to do so at once. The Oxford Times reported: Mr Benfield delivered himself of a “Good Time coming” (2)… and the speakers were loudly cheered. A follow-up meeting held on the Playing Close in late July attracted over 500 people.

In May 1875 Joseph Arch himself visited Charlbury. The Oxford Times reported:

On Saturday evening Mr J. Arch of the N.A.L.U. gave an interesting lecture in the open air on the Playing Close, to a large assembly composed mostly of labourers, upon the most engrossing and pleasing topic to them, viz., the welfare and advantage of their union. The advice he gave them was sound and good, in regard to work and wages, insisting on the principle of a fair day’s work, for a fair day’s wage…..On Sunday afternoon and evening Mr. Arch preached in a field for the Primitive Methodists to nearly 3,000 hearers….”

We have no records of major disputes arising in Charlbury between farmers and their workers, unlike the dramatic events in nearby Ascott-under-Wychwood (see below).

Charlbury is in the Sunday Times' 100 Best Places to Live list again

The Sunday Times publishes its annual “100 Best Places to Live” list this weekend, and for the second year running, Charlbury is one of them.

Town highlights picked out by the guide include CADS, the Deli, and the Bull, plus events such as Street Fair and the Beer Festival.

The national winner was Stroud, on the other side of the Cotswolds. Charlbury was the only Oxfordshire location in the list.

The Sunday Times’ property editor, Helen Davies, said: “Our focus for this year has been community, countryside and convenience. It hasn’t been a year for big cities or small villages. Instead it is small towns that have shone: big enough to have everything you need within walking distance and small enough for everyone to feel connected.”

The full article is behind a paywall on the Sunday Times website but will be in Sunday’s paper. The Oxford Mail has a brief write-up of the report.

Please show restraint

Two large groups were spotted on Nine Acres tennis courts (playing basketball) and trespassing at Charlbury Cricket Club over the last week. We all accept that these are exceptionally challenging times, especially for the youth members of our community  but we all need to comply with the law. Both incidents led to trespass and potential criminal damage as the youths scaled high fences. Please can you help us pass this message onto our youth members that probably won't be following Charlbury Info!! We are hoping to open the tennis courts again on 29th March but the cricket club remains private land.

NeighbourWoof Watch have you joined yet ?

After seeing that 4 1/2 month old Dachshund called "Milo" was stolen from a locked the car in Chipping Norton the other day, it got me thinking that there were far too many dog thefts going on and they were getting more and more local which is becoming very alarming, so I decided to set up a Facebook group called "NeighbourWoof Watch" on Saturday afternoon and barely 6 days after setting this up we currently have 6500 members from all over the country and the numbers are still growing, the group allows any members to post lost or stolen dog information that they come across online to help raise awareness and hopefully make any stolen dog "Too hot to handle" so please do take the time to take a look and feel free to join and help spread the word yes there are lots of other similar groups out there but in this case the more the merrier.

Problem with CMC telephone lines this morning

There seems to be a serious problem with the telephone lines this morning which may be a national issue as they are unable to get through to the company . They are working on it and ask for your patience and understanding for the next few hours. 

Please also note the message below regarding vaccination for the 60+ age group 

Nikki Rycroft · Wed 10 Mar, 09:22 · Link


Message from Charlbury Medical Centre

The Practice asks that those over 60, who would find it difficult, or would prefer not to go to the Kassam Stadium, telephone them to ask for a vaccination at the Football Centre and they will be offered one as soon as possible.

Apparently there is a well founded rumour that the Chancellor referred to West Oxfordshire Rural West ( Charlbury) and the Chipping Norton Group of Practices in the House of Commons recently as an example of very good organisation in getting well ahead with vaccination of their patient population.   

So thank you and well done West Oxfordshire Practices !

Charlbury Street Fair 2021 - a date for your diary - September 18th

Street Fair Update

Charlbury Street Fair 2021 - a date for your diary - September 18th

How will 2021 continue to unfold? What with the COVID-19 vaccine programme and warmer weather, we have hope and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. September 18th is the date for our postponed 2020 Street Fair and arrangements are already being made for the Fair. 2020 was the first year with no Street Fair since its recent inception in 1954, so we intend to make this year’s event one to remember. As I said in 2020, I do like the maxim, “Better to ‘Plan for the Best, be Ready for the Worst”, so we on the Street Fair Committee are already lining things up.

We intend having another ‘Scarecrow Competition’ in the run-up to the Fair - but will have to rethink our ‘March Quiz Nite’ and ‘Open Gardens’ which will not be happening at least to the best of my current knowledge.

What with the ‘lockdown’ in place as I write this, we did not start our planning in January as scheduled, and will get this under way this month. If you would like to help, please do get in touch and watch out for information on this on social media and on posters around the town. We would ideally like someone, for example, to help with publicity, as this is a key ‘vacancy’. If you'd like to know more, or to volunteer in any capacity, even just for a couple of hours on the Fair day, contact me at csfchairman@charlburystreetfair.org. We are having a Zoom committee meeting on the evening of 11th March.

Above all, do please set 18th September in your diary as the Street Fair day.

Charlbury Community Speedwatch News

We’re encouraged by so many positive comments from pedestrians and drivers about our Speed Indicator Device (SID), which we have been deploying around the Town.

Although drivers are still breaking the speed limit, especially within the new 20mph zone, we have demonstrated that SID does slow down traffic when operating. We can download data showing the percentage of speeders, volume of traffic, maximum and average speeds and compare these with data from our other radar kits that don’t have a display. When SID is out, the speeds reduce. We’ve even tried SID at the start of the 20mph limit and had a monitoring radar further down the road to confirm its impact.

The worst offenders in the past few weeks managed 58 mph on The Slade and a staggering 49mph in the 20mph zone just along from the Coop.

Since New Year, we’ve covered The Slade, Park Street, Enstone Road and Browns Lane. We’ll be operating in new locations subject to the ongoing roadworks and suitable secure sites.

If you’d like to know about our data, have a look at our page (https://www.charlbury.info/community/384 ) or email us a question on charlburycsw@gmail.com .

The ultimate solution to speeding in Town would be road layout changes. Wouldn’t it be nice to have “Living Streets” like in other Towns and on the Continent? Try Googling!

Best wishes

Charlbury Artroom

Charlbury Art Society is exploring the possibility of developing a shared space for creativity in the centre of the town.

Are you looking for art space or have always wanted space to meet up with like-minded individuals to be creative? 

Do you need space at weekends to be creative or space to work on a collaborative project? 

There is an exciting opportunity to have an art space in the centre of Charlbury to be used by anyone who needs creative space, physically or mentally outside the home space. 

There is a wide variety of potential users of the space as it would enable up to four art spaces Monday to Sunday throughout the year. 

Maybe a group would like the space to work together regularly, maybe you want to escape the kitchen table or even those tasks that always seem more important than creative endeavours, maybe you just want the discipline of going somewhere regularly to work on your art practice, maybe you want space as a family or group to collectively work on some art or maybe you would like to share use of a space with a friend. 

For whatever reason, are you interested or know someone who would be? 

What will it cost? 

The cost would be dependant on how many artists want to regularly use the space and how it is managed. For example if it was used for six days by four artists each day it would be around £100 per year to use the room for one day a week (£2 per day per week). Or it could run with a membership fee, dependent on numbers, but say 28 members @ £80 per year (£7 per month). 

Whilst it would be under the umbrella of Charlbury Arts it would run as an independent co-operative of users, so it is not just open to current Art Society members. 

This is a great opportunity to fill Charlbury with creativity. 

Before there can be further discussions we need to know if you are interested. If you would like to know more about how you could become involved please contact Tony Lloyd: t.lloyd@live.co.uk, Jane Crane: fjanecrane@gmail.com or Patricia Freeman: patriciafreeman5@googlemail.com

Career Mentoring for 16-18 year olds

Given the many challenges and uncertainties created over the past year, Charlbuy Community Centre has set up a young person’s career mentoring programme. One of the most important and valuable things in life is having advice from those around us. If you ask successful people later in life about the ‘secret’ of their success, they will not point to a single event, but they will often point to a single person who took the time to talk to them and provide them with advice, support and encouragement when they most needed it.

We have a number of trained mentors who can provide advice and guidance to young people, between the ages of 16 and 18, who may be asking themselves some of the most important questions about their future studies and careers. A mentor will offer up to three 1-hour video conference sessions to discuss career choices and provide advice. If you are interested and would like to be connected with a mentor, please contact Daniela at info@charlburycommunitycentre.org.uk.
