PARISH COUNCIL NEWS
IMPROVING THE CHILDREN’S PLAY FACILITIES ON THE RECREATION
GROUND
We are currently thinking about the feasibility of enhancing and improving the
children’s play equipment and the general play area on the Recreation Ground. This
might include greater provision for the ‘under-fives’, seating for mums, dads and
grandparents and generally making the area a more pleasant place to be.
Work like this costs a significant amount of money; tens of thousands of pounds. The
Parish Council simply do not have the funds but might be in a position to make
applications to various bodies that provide grants for this sort of project. Other monies
might come from local fundraising events?
Before, any grant applications are considered, the Parish Council must be able to
demonstrate that it has consulted fully with all residents, including children. So, it’s
over to you!
Please let us know what you think – is this a good idea? What sort of change would
you like to see?
You can let us know your views and ideas via this website.
WELCOME TO OUR NEW PARISH COUNCILLOR
Following discussions with Ms Anne Newson of Busbys Close, it has been agreed to
formally co-opt her as a Parish Councillor.
Planning applications/decisions
Holly Tree House, Main Street: Alterations and extension to dwelling; reduction in
roof height of annexe and erection of a new detached car port. Granted
Change of use of land and barns to provide outward bound activities on land at
Windmill Farm. Following a presentation by Jon Cox of Adventure Plus, the Parish
Council agreed to support the application subject to access to the site being limited to
the main entrance of the conference centre and not accessed/exited via Mill Lane.

         Exhibition: Ellis & Lander: abstract paintings and sculptures
                     by Belinda Ellis and Barbara Lander
         Dates:      Saturday 8th - Sunday 30th June 2013
         Opening Reception: Saturday 8th June, 12 – 2pm
         Location: West Ox Arts Gallery, Market Square, Bampton
         Open Hours: Tues – Sat 10.30 – 4.30pm & Sun 2 – 4pm
                   The paintings and sculptures featured in this exhibition are
                   full of dichotomy and energy. Ellis’ expressionistic paintings,
                   which range from small to large scale, reveal a sense of
                   accident and order, translucence and opacity, stillness
                   and energy.         Meanwhile Lander’s
enigmatic clay sculptures – which have a striking
resemblance to steel – look simultaneously hard and soft,
hardwearing but surprisingly vulnerable. With works that
demand engagement from – and with – the viewer, this
exhibition will challenge the sense.

                                                                                3

St. Stephen’s, Clanfield
Many thanks to everyone who supported the Plant Sale
at JBS Nurseries on Sunday 12th May. Over £3000 was
raised for the St. Stephen’s Bell Appeal, which means
our intrepid campanologists are nearly half-way towards
their target of £20,000 to carry out necessary
maintenance work on the bells. Thanks and
congratulations must go to Liz and Julian Stevens and
their supporters for putting on this highly successful
event: watch this space for future fundraising events!
This year’s Flower Festival will be held on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June, with
the theme being “Let’s face the music and dance!”. Our talented flower arrangers
are already busy planning the stunning visual displays with which to wow us this
year and it promises to be most interesting. As usual, our Gift Day will be on the
Sunday (23rd June), where we ask the village to make any contributions they can to
support the upkeep and maintenance of their parish church – look out for the leaflets
and envelopes!

WALKERS/DOG WALKERS PLEASE NOTE
For those of you who walk/walk your dogs in the fields over the stile on the left of the
Church path, there is to be a change in access to the public footpath. The landowner,
Mr Nigel Johnson is planning to put rare breed sheep (Cotswold Lions) in the field
nearest the church and obviously must have stock proof fencing in place to secure
them. To that end, he will be fitting a wooden gate with a spring closure (as per the
pattern of most gates on public footpaths) to replace the broken stile that is there at
present.
Please will you ensure that your dog is under your control and on a lead when using
this public footpath and be certain to clear up any dog mess. There is a bin just inside
the gate to the church.

                                                                                     5
CLANFIELD APRIL 1985 FOOTBALL CLUB
Firstly an apology that our Notes were not available and printed in the last edition.
This was entirely our Correspondent’s fault due to extreme pressure of work (and
football).
As these notes are compiled the Club are in the midst of the tail-end to the Season
including a four games in eight days period before the end of the League Season on
April 27th. As our Club are members of a League that forms part of the National
Pyramid of Non-League Football we are told that the Season has to end strictly on
the date appointed by the Pyramid Administrators. Sadly what is sauce for the goose
is not actually sauce for the gander and we note that although our League is under
very heavy pressure to finish the fixtures some exceptions are made but not in our
case!
The Team has been playing relatively well over the recent fixtures and have picked
up 4 points in the last two games. The good news is that we are not going to finish in
a relegation position. The bad news is that after all the hopes and expectations at
the start of the Season we are not going to finish in a promotion position.
The Club has one more fixture to play after the League Season has finished and that
is on Thursday, May 2nd 2013 when they will compete in the Final of The Faringdon
Thursday Memorial Cup which takes place at Tucker Park, Faringdon, kick-off 6.30
p.m. The Team beat Faringdon Town by 3 goals to 2 in the Semi-Final and at least
have the chance of some silverware this Season.
There will be a full review of the Season in the next issue of this publication.
The Clubhouse remains the focal point for the Club social activities with regular
Bingo on Monday evenings. There have also been a number of local Junior matches
from the Witney & District Football Association.
On May 3rd 2013 there will be a Disco in the Clubhouse commencing at 7.30 p.m.
There is also a Quiz Night on Saturday, May 18th 2013 commencing at 8.30 p.m.
The Club website has been a little inactive recently and steps are being taken to
ensure that this is regularly maintained as and from now.

Clanfield W.I.
Tuesday 14th May saw our discussion of the National WI Resolution on the need to
keep our high streets alive and to support small and local businesses, which was
followed by a beetle drive – an enjoyable evening all round. On the following day, 4
of us went on an Oxfordshire WI Federation walk: ‘Monks, mounds and mills’. We
started at Great Coxwell and walked a circular route, encompassing Badbury Clump
where the carpet of bluebells was exquisite. Despite the rain, we all enjoyed
ourselves and ate a delicious lunch in the Great Coxwell Reading Rooms, thanks to
the Great Coxwell WI. The following evening saw yet more festivities as we
celebrated the 95th birthday of Clanfield WI at ‘The Biztro’ in Bampton. The food was
                                           delicious, the wine flowed and we talked
          MALC NEWMAN                      and talked. Thank you to our hosts and

Bell Restoration Appeal
People came from far and wide to buy plants from JBS Nurseries in Bampton at the
recent Open Day which resulted in a staggering £3,200 towards the work on St.
Stephen's bells. The ringers are most grateful for all those involved in the event and
the generous donations. We are pleased to report that we are almost half way to the
target. Once the figure of £10,000 has been reached we should be able to apply for
grants. If you would like to donate to towards restoring the bells, please contact our
treasurer Bryn Torrington 01367 810510.

Council Tax Scam Warning
West Oxfordshire District Council would like to warn residents to be on their guard
against bogus callers advising them that their Council Tax bands may be too high.
These callers are offering to work on your behalf for a fee to obtain a reduction.
This is a scam, which is operating across the country, and the District Council is
currently receiving reports of callers contacting residents in West Oxfordshire.
If you wish to appeal against your council tax banding, you can do this yourself very
easily by contacting the District Valuation Office on 03000 505 150. It is not a
complicated procedure, there is no requirement whatsoever for a third party to
intervene and it will not cost you anything.
If you receive one of these calls, do not give out any personal information and end the
call as quickly as possible. The fraudsters can get aggressive and ring back if you put
the phone down but this is all part of the scam to make you act as they want.
To report a suspected scam, contact Oxfordshire County Council Trading Standards
on 0845 0510845

Clanfield’s new website
www.clanfieldpc.co.uk
Thank you to those of you who have sent me your comments and suggestions about how our
website can be developed – they are most welcome.
If you have not visited the website yet, please do and let us know what you think.
Please put our website address in your top browser address bar . You will also find it by
Googling - Clanfield Parish Council Oxfordshire.
The Parish Council commissioned the new website for the village which will be developed in
stages over the next 12 months.
Its purpose is to
   • To improve communication and encourage your involvement in parish matters
   • To promote the village and encourage new businesses
   • To keep you up to date and well informed about what the Parish Council is doing and
      what is happening in Clanfield.
                                             Note that The Parish Council receives flood
                                             alerts and notices from the Police and other
                                             agencies several times per month which will
                                             appear on the website from now on.
                                             We are thinking about an Events/ What’s on page
                                             for local clubs and societies, so if you are
                                             planning any events/festivals etc, over the
                                             summer, let us know and we will promote your
                                             event - the web site allows for the use of images,
                                             music and video to support this.
                                             We are also considering advertising pages to
                                             enable local businesses to promote their
                                             businesses and local employment opportunities
                                             and for residents to advertise cars and property
                                             for sale or rent.
                                             If you believe a local web based “Advertiser”
                                             would be of value please let us know.

Rotary Club of Faringdon & District
BUSCOT PARK FUN RUN - On Sunday 30th June, we are holding our annual Run at
the beautiful and famous Buscot Park House grounds. This is always a lovely day out
for the whole family, so do plan to come. Feeling energetic? Then why not participate
in the 10k Run, or the shorter 5k fun run. Both races will take you through the open
fields and formal scenic parkland, running on a mix of gravel and tarmac.
The 5k fun run starts at 10.30am followed by the 10k run at 11.15am. We have
measured the course with a very accurate GPS and will have water stations at
strategic locations. For more information or to enrol for the races, please contact
Rotarian Ian Lloyd at 38 Folly View Road, Faringdon, SN7 7DH or
atian@propertyandenergy.co.uk
PRESIDENTS NIGHT: On Saturday 12th May, at the Sudbury House Hotel, 73 club
members, friends and family came together to signal that the end of the Rotary year is
in sight. Our President Peter Walker, entertained us with his thoughts on the year and
in particular celebrating the success of our inaugural Duck Race in April. Linda Walker
has been a huge supporter of both Peter and the club over the past eleven months
and was warmly thanked with a beautiful arrangement of flowers.
The evening was also an opportunity for Peter to present one of our charitable
donations from the Duck Race. George Hedges is the founder of Rosy - Respite
nursing for Oxfordshire's Sick Youngsters, an organisation that raises awareness of
the need for respite nursing and funds to boost the extremely limited resources of
Oxfordshire's Children's Respite Nursing Team. The team offers respite nursing to
terminally, acutely, or chronically ill children and babies in their homes. George took
home with him a cheque for £1,000.
The highlight of the evening for most of us was Joanna Trollope who generously gave
her time to join us for the evening. Joanna gave us a detailed insight into her career
as a very successful author and generously answered many questions from the room.
Both beautiful and engaging we were struck by just how down to earth and friendly
she was, obviously feeling very 'at home' amongst her audience.
                                                                     John Nightingale

Clanfield and Bampton Historical Society
A red dragon may have become the most potent of Welsh symbols, but it originated
not in the Principality but in a pit in Oxford if the Celtic Red Book of Hergest, which is
in the library of Jesus College, is to be believed, as Mark Davies told the society in
his talk on ‘The Joneses of Jesus’.
According to the book, the reign of Lludd, king of Britain who founded the city of
London, was disrupted by three plagues, the second of which involved a piercing
scream that happened every May Day, causing all pregnant women in Britain to
miscarry. Lludd sought the advice of his brother, Llefelys, king of France, who told
him to find the centre of his kingdom – which happened to be Oxford – and dig a pit,
and there he found a red and a white dragon, representing the Celts and the
Saxons, fighting and screaming.
He put them to sleep with a vat of mead, transported them to Wales and buried them
in Snowdonia. Geoffrey of Monmouth, who translated the Red Book into Latin, goes
on to relate how the boy Emrys, who was to become the wizard Merlin, later
revealed the presence of the dragons: the red one was adopted by the Welsh, the
fate of the white remains a mystery but out of it was born the story of King Arthur
and Merlin.
Mark had many tales to tell about Oxford’s Welsh connection, most importantly the
foundation of Jesus College, only for men born in Wales, by Hugh Price, the
treasurer of St David’s Cathedral. How Price acquired enough wealth to endow the
college can only be a matter for conjecture. The students were among the poor
relations of Oxford colleges, and most would walk from their homes in Wales to
Oxford and back.
‘Beau’ Nash, the Regency dandy, T.E. Lawrence (of Arabia) and the poet Dylan
Thomas, who clearly disliked Oxford but was a regular at The Perch in Bimsey, were
among others Mark included in his talk, which brought the 2012-13 season to an
end. We shall reconvene in October.
There was a very enjoyable and informative 'bonus' to our season when David
Palfreyman, one of our newest members and bursar of New College gave those
of members who could make it a tour of the college, with a lot of fascinating,
sometimes irreverent, insights, while the college's senior archivist arranged a
number of rarely-seen documents for us to examine. It ended with us attending
Evensong in the chapel, which included the chance to hear the college's magnificent
choir. What a treat it all was!

Clanfield Football Club
Despite achieving two wins and one draw from their last three league games
Clanfield finished in the bottom six of Division 1 West for the first time since 2006/07.
They also reached the final of the Faringdon Thursday Cup, but were beaten 2-1 by
North Berkshire league Champions Saxton Rovers.
Interestingly enough the 2006/07 season was the 14th season out of 19 Clanfield
had finished in the bottom six, and in the last 11 of these 14 seasons they averaged
less than a point per game, so in that sense this campaign in which they obtained 36
points from 30 games was relatively successful.
This season it was Clanfield's away form that let them down with only 1 win on their
travels, a 5-0 success at Lambourn. Ironically Lambourn who were the only club
that they completed the double against finished above then, while Purton who were
the only club to complete the double against them finished above them.
Newport County who played in the Hellenic League under the name of AFC Newport
recently became the first former Hellenic League club to play in the football league,
while former Hellenic League opponents Brackley were at the time of writing one
game away from a place in the Conference National, but unfortunately at this
present time Clanfield are a long way short of achieving this level of success.

SPEEDING
From Carterton Neighbourhood team, local officers supervised by Sergeant Ed Crofts
conducted a speeding operation in Clanfield resulting in 23 drivers being dealt with by
police for exceeding the 30mph speed limit in Main Street Clanfield on 8 May 13.
Drivers will be receiving penalty points, going on speed awareness courses or going
to magistrates court depending on their speed. Many were local residents - please
slow down! Complaints of speeding are taken very seriously by the neighbourhood
team.


RAVES!
Last year there was a significant increase in the number of ‘Raves’ held in the
Thames Valley area. These are unlicensed music events which often spring up
without notice and cause great distress to local people and the TV Police are keen to
ensure that there is no repeat this year.
To that end, Cherwell and West Oxfordshire Neighbourhood teams are working
together to safeguard our villages and rural locations and would like your help please.
We need two members of our community to act as ‘RAVE monitors’; these people will
be active, vigilant and knowledgeable about Clanfield - training will be available and
your task would be to look out for any signs that a rave might occur.
The Police do not expect the monitors to be active on a regular basis as they
themselves will be acting on intelligence and ensuring there is an appropriate tactical
response to any incident. Please let me know if you can help.
                                                                           Lynda Scott
