Thames Water - Steventon Drop-in Session

Tuesday 10th April, 3:30 to 7:30pm
Steventon Village Hall
This session held by Thames Water is to put forward the
challenges of providing water for the next 80 years
as they see them.
They will present a list of their proposals for meeting the
challenges, which include a much bigger new reservoir near
Steventon than the one that was rejected after a  public enquiry in 2011.
The reservoir would cover 4.5 square miles (1166 hectares)
and stand 25 metres (80 feet) above ground level.
This would have a very serious impact on the local environment.
You can read about Thames Water's plans at
- see the case against the reservoir prepared by the
Group Against Reservoir Development (GARD) at www.hendred.org.

Zumba Gold
This low intensity, low impact class introduces easy-to-follow

Potholes - Help get them fixed!
The streets in our village are becoming positively perforated.
Repairing them is the responsibility of Oxfordshire Highways.
Anyone can easily report potholes to them, via the website
www.fixmystreet.com.  Accompany your report with photographs.
A white painted line around a pothole means that it has been
marked for repair by Highways, so there is no need to report it.

Local Small Businesses - Getting together?
Would you like to discuss setting up a group for people who
run small businesses to get together and share experiences
and expertise on subjects like marketing, insurance, IT, tax,
premises, finding staff, or just floating ideas?
Meetings might be held monthly and include coffee or lunch
according to what suits.
If you are interested, please email hendredhub@hendred.org
and if enough people respond, a meeting can be set up at
Snells Hall, where we have Wifi, a projector and screen.
