Hare Coursing

on 16 September 2013 - 7:26pm

Hare Coursing is illegal.

Thames Valley Police have recently issued the following press release:

It is the time of year when hare coursers and poachers are about, so please be aware and report any suspicious activity to police via the 101 number straight away. Suspicious activity could be any of the following:  

  • Groups of vehicles parked up in a rural area, perhaps to a gateway to farmland, bridle paths, farm tracks or grass verges.

  • There will usually be estate cars, 4x4s or vans. They may have evidence of dogs inside like muddy paw prints or dog hairs.

  • Hare coursers

Broadband Update

on 9 September 2013 - 6:56pm

As many of you will be aware, OCC has now published the map of areas of the county which will receive a broadband upgrade from BT. At the moment the map is only indicative and is likely to change as BT surveys each area for suitability for an upgrade.

North Leigh village is currently listed as being part of the upgrade but East End, New Yatt and Wilcote are all excluded.

What does this mean for residents of the parish?

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 North Leigh parish -
