Parish Council News
A PARISH COUNCIL FOR THE FUTURE
Many of you are familiar with the wonderful TV show, ‘The Vicar of Dibley’ and the extremely funny depiction of the Parish Council at work.
We like to think that Down Ampney Parish Council does not operate on the same footing and, sadly, our own popular local vicar is not part of the proceedings. Similarly, whilst we are all ‘maturing’ it is not a bunch of ‘Old F**ts’ who make up the complement of our committee.
Sadly the perception of ‘being on the Parish Council’ does not sit well with DA residents and only a small number of volunteers sit here and that number is now dwindling.

We believe that we are lucky to live where we are, somewhat isolated from the large crowds that threaten to create the ‘second wave’ of Covid epidemic. Complacency, however, is not good and we must continue to embrace the requirements necessary for our health and wellbeing. Masks are still available in the village shop if you need them.
There has been a spate of fly tipping in the area with a lorry load of tyres being left close by the A419 roundabout and a burnt out car left at the Arnhem Memorial access. Also, unfortunately, there is evidence that drug taking is happening in the area. Please do keep a watchful eye open when out walking and report anything suspicious should you come across something untoward.
