Parish Council Report

 

 

 

The Parish Council met on Tuesday 2nd November with 6 Parish Councillors, Sally Povolotsky, Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) Councillor, Matthew Barber, Vale of White Horse District Councillor and a large number of members of the public being present.

With the Christmas festivities upon us I hope residents have managed to keep clear of contracting Covid 19 virus. Please ensure, for your own and other peoples safety, especially the elderly and those medically vulnerable, that you are fully vaccinated to fully enjoy the festive season, and beyond.

The Parish Council infrastructure working group is looking at the installation of yellow lines in parts of the village to help with parking problems.

Have your say on pharmaceutical services in Oxfordshire. People who use pharmaceutical services in Oxfordshire are being asked to give their views on whether current services are meeting the needs of the population.

Residents have until 9 January 2022 to comment on Oxfordshire County Council’s new pharmaceutical needs assessment (PNA).

The NHS will use the PNA to work out if any changes are needed to pharmacy services in Oxfordshire. Community pharmacies are a linchpin of our local health services. They have remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and have been a vital asset to our communities over the years. They deliver services to support our local health and social care services from providing medical advice and administering flu jabs, to offering emergency contraception, dispensing medication and so much more.

This is an opportunity for all residents of Steventon, particularly those who use pharmacies regularly, to ensure that the new assessment accurately reflects the current provision being delivered for Steventon. The initial draft can be seen and responded to by going to:

Community fund grants are to commence in January 2022 for charities in local areas to Milton Park. Keep an eye on the Milton Park website for application details.

The next Parish Council meeting is on Tuesday December 7th, 7pm in the Village Hall.

 Have a Merry Christmas

Chair, Steventon Parish Council
