2nd WW mortar shell

The police were called in connection with the finding of a 2nd WW mortar shell at the rear of a garden in DA. Members or the royal Logistics Corp were called to render it safe and remove. This exercise caused great interest keeping the police busy in maintaining a safety cordon.

All ended safely


The over-ruling effects of Coronavirus continues to shadow all activity and it is a welcome relief that some relaxation of controls (recommendations) has occurred. Down Ampney has weathered the storm relatively easily and we are sure villagers are now looking forward to returning to what is being described as the ‘New Norm’.

 Garden Waste collection to restart in Cotswold District

Cotswold District Council has announced that fortnightly garden waste collections will restart from Wednesday 13 May.

Cllr Andrew Doherty, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “Over the last few weeks we have needed to use our garden waste vehicles and crews to support the main waste and recycling collections while some staff have had to take time off sick, to self-isolate or to look after loved ones affected by Covid-19. During that time our team has worked hard, alongside our waste partner Ubico, to find a way to return these vehicles and crews to their normal rounds.
