Dog Mess Update

Since our announcement in January via the Village News and Website regarding the dogs walked in this village, we are pleased that the feedback has been so positive.  Our campaign to try to stop irresponsible dog walkers from allowing their dogs to leave their messes around the Village is ongoing, not only as regards the pavements but also the footpaths, the open spaces, the quarry, other people’s front gardens and the verges by roads and bridleways, as well as the churchyard and the playing field.

It is worth repeating that dog poo bags are available free from the village shop (supplied by Cherwell District Council).  There are five poo bag bins in the village which are collected regularly by Cherwell District Council, and that Council advises that where there is no specific dog poo bin nearby such bags with their contents should be placed in your GREEN bin.

So there is no excuse for bags to be thrown up into trees, hung on farmers’ gates or left in verges.  Please do be considerate of others’ property   Of course, our village has no 24 -hour dog warden to police inconsiderate behaviour, day and night, but we rely on our villagers to act responsibly and we are grateful to community-minded villagers who take the trouble to talk to those who do not act responsibly.

KWACS Talk: The History and Wildlife of RSPB Otmoor – 4th October

The History and Wildlife of RSPB Otmoor, presented by Gary Smith
Wednesday 4th October at 7.45pm
St Mary’s Church, Kirtlington

We hope this message finds you well after a fun-filled summer and now that the nights are drawing in, the leaves are falling off the trees and our hedgehogs are curling up into tight little balls we welcome you to KWACS 2017 – 2018 winter lecture programme.

Otmoor is a truly special place for wildlife and particularly birds with nearly 200 different species recorded this century, including the spectacular starling murmurations, but Otmoor has a varied and very interesting history from a huge expanse of marshland that villagers used as common land in the 1300s to the SSSI classified nature reserve we know today.

The talk will be followed up with a visit to the RSPB reserve on Sunday 19th November at 1pm to hopefully experience the starling’s breathtaking ballet of the sky.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
