Yes, we have said this before, but now it's really going to happen early in the New Year. A small dedicated sub-committee spent long evenings in these past months looking at the concerns of Radley villagers to construct the questionnaire. This questionnaire has gone through many changes! We've refined it enormously to make the questionnaire as user-friendly as possible yet still address the important issues. To ensure we have got it just right we' ve tested it out on family and neighbours this past autumn. Our willing testers helped us to improve the questionnaire even further. We now have the...

Our final visit for the Parish Plan was to Radley College on Thursday, 8 July. Ian Yorstan and his two helpers (son Benedict and daughter Alexandra) gave us an informative, behind-the-scenes look at our local public school. A little known fact is that Radley College was set up 3 times before it finally got off the ground (each time it went bankrupt!) We saw the inner sanctum of the Mansion House, the Chapel, the "Doughnut" (officially Queen's Court) and also the Chapel above the Bridge (most people don't know this exists!!) Our hearty thanks to the Yorstans for a great... Continue reading

On a slightly over-cast Thursday evening, 1st July, a group of Radleyites joined Nick Frearson and two members of FWAG, Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group, for a most interesting look at what is being done to conserve wildlife on one of Radley's local farms. Nick has lived in Radley all of his life and has farmed Lower Farm for much of that time. He explained how farming has changed rapidly in the last 40+ years. Once a farmer could earn a good living by farming his fields, but now farmers must diversify in order to survive. Lower Farm is a... Continue reading

Bill Homewood gave a select group of "Radleyites" a fantastic tour of Peachcroft Farm. We saw baby turkeys and geese and took a trailer ride to the outer reaches of the Farm. The day was beautifully warm and sunny, the company was convivial, and we finished up with a "pick-your-own" basket of strawberries each. Sheer bliss!! Continue reading

Good Friday started with fine weather as members of the Parish Plan Committee set up shop in the Bowyer Arms to once again gather your thoughts and opinions of our Village. We talked to the families, friends and competitors as they signed up for the events. We chatted about the needs of the Village while waiting for the walkers to finish the races and we congratulated the bedraggled winners and commiserated with the ones who weren't first over the finish line. Well done to everyone who participated!!! And thank you to everyone who took part in our survey! Radley Good... Continue reading
