OXTOG: Volunteers Supporting OCC Highways

OXTOG stands for Oxfordshire Together and consists of several initiatives that Parish & Town Councils can get involved with to improve their local roads, pavements and public rights of way.

Thank you to all who have borrowed our sign cleaning kits so far.  We are implementing a system where we have kits in all districts throughout the summer being passed from one parish to the next for efficiency.

If you would like to borrow the equipment as part of a spring cleaning/litter pick or for a specific sign cleaning day please contact volunteercoordinationteam@oxfordshire.gov to reserve your kit.

For more information about OXTOG activities please visit:  Volunteer for highways and your community | Oxfordshire County Council

 

 

Goring Heath Update No5

Dear Volunteers

Our best wishes for a speedy recovery to the PM and Health Secretary.

Fantastic response in Whitchurch Hill to the Support the NHS and Carers Applause!! I even heard a trumpet!!

The Admin for our group is growing, thanks to Becky for her help.

The content on this web site is growing, thanks to new and prospective contributors, and to Chris for keeping it all up to date. It is a great way for everyone to keep in touch with what is going on.

There will be a Special Goring Heath Newsletter coming soon…..

There have been two more requests for help, and our details as a group are one various helplines as websites as appropriate. We are on the map!!

A volunteer emailed to say that they were ready and waiting, is there really nothing to do?

I replied that the good news is that we have a system in place that, hopefully, is robust enough to meet the situation now, and in the future.

We have a core of willing and able volunteers that are responding to a changing situation, and we have a good system of communication with the WEBSITE being updated every day, to keep us all informed.

Just for now, we can respond to individual requests, and cheerfully assume that the least contact with each other is all for the best, and absolutely necessary.

Many thanks

Amanda
