What Watlington wants

Christmas Fair 2016

(Thanks to Nicola Schafer Photography)

We took the opportunity of distributing our specially commissioned Christmas Card update to the hundreds of visitors and followed this up with hand delivery of the card to all the households in the Parish

We recorded some video interviews for use in 2017

The build up to Consultation 3 involved a number of drop in sessions in March and April 2017 and the events were listed on the flyer


Watlington Parish Council (Annual Parish Meeting) 

We made presentations in 2016 and 2017 but noty in 2018

and at the Annual WPC Outreach meetings held in Christmas Common (specifically for residents of Christmas Common, Greenfield and Howe Hill and parts of Northend and Pishill) in November 2015 and November 2016.

Our settlements were included in other events, for example a "drop in" event in May 2014
