Proposed Oxford to Cambridge Expressway

The Baldons Neighbourhood Plan - Responses now being analysed

The Neighbourhood Plan is important because it will give residents a say on future development in the Baldons. The Parish Council shares the view that people will want to take the opportunity to influence the future of the place where they live or work and that the Plan for the Parish should be written by the Parish rather than by Planning Officers.

The plan is expected to be published later this year.

For details read here


There was a meeting in the village hall to discuss it on Tues 3rd October at 7.30 pm. The village hall was full to overflowing and a lively discussion was had.

We have been collecting collecting responses from villagers and they are now being looked at in detail.

Ride and Stride

Annual Cycle Ride and Stride for Oxfordshire Historic Churches was held on Saturday 9th September 2017

The Baldons historic churches of St Lawrence and St Peter village assets and the buildings have been a part of our community landscape for many hundreds of years. Each year the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust - which is a charity dedicated to the preservation of these buildings - organises a sponsored "Ride and Stride" event to encourage people to visit these places and to raise money for their renovation and improvement.

If anyone is still interested in sponsoring, it is not too late - there is a Just Giving Page set up: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ian-gillespie3.

Incidentally, it looks as if St Peter's will be a recipient of a significant grant to kick start its campaign to support planned improvement works there over the next year or so.
