East Hagbourne Speedwatch Group(EHSG) were finally up and running yesterday afternoon (26th Nov) along New Road. Whilst we were only up and running for an hour, it was pleasing to note that we only had two vehicles speeding excessively!
A big thank you to the speedwatch members that attended and to the other members unable to attend, but who have volunteered to help in future sessions.
In the coming weeks and months more sessions will be held at various locations and times around the village, and hopefully encouraging motorists to be aware of their speed and driving behaviour in our village.

A new support network is now available for vulnerable people visiting Wallingford and Didcot. Safe Places aims to provide a safe location for someone to go if they are feeling lost, worried or threatened.
Those premises taking part in the scheme are identified with a distinctive Safe Places logo in the window, for example local shops, community centres or cafes – this will be issued with the approval of local Thames Valley Police officers. A list of the locations signed up to the Safe Places scheme can be found at southoxon.gov.uk/safeplaces.
Under the Safe Places scheme people can request a special card to carry with them when out and about. This provides details of someone to contact if they are in need of help. Whether you have a Safe Places card or not, you can enter a participating location and ask for assistance. Staff have been trained and will be able to help keep you safe.
If you or someone you know wishes to request a Safe Places contact card, or you are a business interested in becoming a Safe Place, please email South Oxfordshire District Council’s Community Safety Team via email@example.com or call 01235 422593.

Drivers in South Oxfordshire can benefit from free parking in district council car parks on certain days in December. This annual free parking tradition is designed to encourage people to shop locally for their Christmas presents. The free parking days allocated to each area are agreed with the individual town councils depending on which day would best suit local traders.
Free Christmas parking days also means people don’t have to pay to park if they wish to catch up with friends and family in the pubs, cafés and restaurants during the festive period.
Drivers will be able to park without paying for a ticket in local car parks on the following days next month:
· Wallingford -Thursdays (5, 12,19 December)
· Didcot – Mondays (9, 16, 23 December)
· Goring – Saturdays (7, 14, 21 December)
· Henley – Tuesdays (3, 10, 17 December)
In Vale of White Horse:
· Abingdon – Saturdays (7, 14, 21 December)
· Faringdon – Saturdays (7, 14, 21 December)
· Wantage – Saturdays (7, 14, 21 December)
On the above days there’s no need to display a ticket.

As all residents of East Hagbourne are aware, the amount of traffic through our village has increased dramatically over the past 12 months or more. New Housing in the area, poor traffic infra structure in neighbouring towns and villages and Hagbourne becoming a ‘rat run’ have all contributed to our roads becoming increasingly busy. This has led to increased and inappropriate traffic speeds, and the inherent dangers these bring to residents.
With the support of East Hagbourne Parish Council(EHPC) and Thames Valley Police(TVP) it is proposed to set up a village speed-watch forum which will enable residents to effectively monitor traffic speeds and, where necessary, report excessive speeding by motorists to the appropriate authorities. To this end, I am looking for volunteers to assist me so that together we can make East Hagbourne a safer community. I am intending to hold a meeting mid September and then, all being well , starting the speed-watch campaign in October/November. If you are interested in assisting, please contact me on 07595 747644 or e-mail me on email@example.com .
