General Notices

Parish Council elections

High Sheriff of Oxfordshire Awards 2016 - Martyn Cross Minster Lovell Parish Council is delighted to announce that Martyn Cross is to receive a High Sheriff of Oxfordshire Award for contributions to community life at a ceremony to be held later this month (29th February 2016).

Martyn, otherwise known as 'Chipper' in the community, is widely known for his untiring contributions to cricket and football clubs in Minster Lovell. He has built up Minster Lovell Cricket Club over a period of 21 years which now coaches 156 boys and 16 girls including a team of players with disabilities named Minster Lovell Lions. A considerable number of Minster Lovell youth players are now representing the District and County at different age levels reflecting a great personal achievement of his hard work.

Additionally, Martyn devotes time to Minster Lovell Football Team who he has been coaching and managing for many years and is in his 17th year of being their Chairman. He also ran one of the biggest six-a-side football tournaments in Oxfordshire for youth and men over a two day weekend for many years, at Wash Meadow.

He has devoted 21 years of his time to endless fund raising events to help build the pavilion at Wash Meadow, arranging Village days, fun days and BBQs for teams and is always 'there' to help others come rain or shine.

Minster Lovell would wholeheartedly like to say a big 'thank you' to their community hero.

'Bin it - don't block it' ‘Bin it – don’t block it’ is our campaign to end the misery caused by ‘fatbergs’.  Thames Water message.

(Click title to be taken to Thames Water's webpage).

Leftover cooking fat and oil poured down the sink will set hard. This creates stinking, pipe-blocking fatbergs beneath your house or in your street.

Wet wipes are another big no-no because they are made of plastic. They don’t break down like toilet tissue, clinging to fat and clogging up the system. If drains get blocked, what you flush can come back up through your toilet or even your sink.

We clear around 55,000 blockages from our sewers each year at a cost of £12m and 7,000 customers suffer from sewer flooding in their homes and gardens – a truly miserable experience.

Our message is simple, if it's not water, toilet tissue or poo, please... bin it - don't block it.

Repatriation of fallen
service personnel


A group of parishioners have organised repatriation assemblies at the south end of the village at the junction of the Brize Norton road and the A40 slip road.

Car parking is available at the Minster Lovell Scout Group car park. 

Contact has been made with the repatriation organizing group at Brize Norton so the cortege will slow down at the junction allowing the assembled people to pay their respects. Posters informing the Village of any forthcoming repatriation will be displayed at the Spar Shop and at the Post Office.

Anyone wishing to know details of repatriation can log on to:-

www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/repatriation-fallen-service-personnel and register for an email to be sent to them direct.
