Plans are underway to refurbish the existing play area on Ralegh Crescent, on Deer Park. Witney Town Council is leading the project and will be running a consultation stand at the West Witney Primary School Christmas Fayre, from 12-2pm on Saturday 9th December. Please come along and give us your feedback on what you would like to see on the play area. Your thoughts and ideas will be used to put together a design brief for playground suppliers to work with.
Good news. There is now a new noticeboard to replace the one that was removed from Market Square. It is located at the southern end of Market Square against the railings by the Town Hall.

Following the attack in Manchester on Monday evening, the Mayor of Witney, Cllr Chris Woodward and Leader of the Council, Cllr Toby Morris have sent a letter of condolence to the Lord Mayor of Manchester expressing solidarity and support to all of those involved.
On behalf of the Town Council and the people of Witney, we offer our deepest condolences for the devastating loss of life and injuries sustained during the concert at Manchester Arena on Monday evening.
We share in your grief.
It is deeply shocking, and beyond belief that this terrible attack was on a concert where so much joy and pleasure was being had by families and their young children.
The communities of Manchester and the families of the victims are in our thoughts as the country, and the world, comes to terms with this horror.
Lord Mayor, we stand with your community as family, and offer you peace and our strength at this difficult time.
Cllr Chris Woodward
Mayor of Witney
