Down Ampney News


Your Parish Council met on 3rd March to discuss village matters as follows;

Cllr Lisa Spivey was quizzed about the changes to the waste recycling collections and comments were made concerning the size of the new ‘blue’ cardboard bag. All agreed that it was too small considering the instructions that boxes left outside the receptacle will NOT be collected. This message must go to CDC for their attention.

We have been advised that Sanctuary will start works at Broadway Farm during May.

Coromavirus Threat

Dear residents


Whilst the threat of spread of Coronavirus has yet to touch Down Ampney, we believe that to be prepared will not be a bad thing.

Within the village there is an active 'Neighbourhood Watch' co-ordinated by a number of people who live in and around the village together with Parish Council members they form a link throughout

Our main concern is the protection of the elderly and most vulnerable residents who, for one reason or another, are unable to get to shops or chemists, thus enabling them to live without worry or concerns.

USAF Exercise

Good Afternoon all,

I just wanted to make you aware that a press release has been issued today, about a USAF exercise taking place next week, which involves a number of military bases in the UK, including RAF Fairford. The exercise will take place between 11 and 13 February, and will involve limited flying at night. During these dates, you may see and hear aircraft taking off and landing at RAF Fairford, transiting to training areas over the North sea, which could take place several times between sunset and sunrise.
