Congratulations to Hagbourne United Football Club Reserves Team on a very successful season.

– Winners of the 2018-19 Division 4 title in the North Berks League by a margin of 12 points.

– 100 goals scored, the highest in the whole league.

– Winners of the League Cup which is for North Berks League Division 4 sides, beating close rivals Harwell & Appleford by one goal to nil after extra time in the final played at Milton FC.

Extra Garden Waste Week – 20th May

Image of garden waste brown bin

Residents across southern Oxfordshire, who are signed up for brown bin collections, can put out twice as much garden waste during the extra garden waste weeks in May.

South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse district councils are giving those who are part of the paid-for service the opportunity to put out the equivalent of one extra bin’s worth of garden waste (around three large 80 litre bin bags) in the week commencing 20 May.

Residents should leave their extra garden waste out in bin liners or sacks beside their brown bins on their usual collection day during these weeks.  Trade waste bags will not be accepted., however you can re-use old compost bags.

The garden waste is taken to a recycling plant in Oxfordshire where it is used to make compost, which goes to local farmers, allotment holders and an annual compost giveaway.
