Blue Plaque unveiled for Alice Maud Batt

Witney Town Council is proud to have contributed to the Blue Plaque for Alice Maud Batt which was unveiled on Saturday at Batt House on Market Square.

Alice was awarded the Albert Medal, which was the highest honour conferred by the Crown on civilians for acts of bravery and gallantry, demonstrating the greatest heroism, or the most conspicuous courage in circumstances of extreme danger in 1918. The medal, which was considered to be the civil equivalent of the Victoria Cross, has now been replaced by the George Cross.

Her citation for the medal mentions a fire breaking out at the Casualty Clearing Station at Rousbrugge, Belgium, on 1st October 1918, where she was working alongside a surgeon, performing an operation in theatre. Despite the lights going out and the theatre filling with smoke and flames Miss Batt continued to assist the surgeon by torchlight, calmly passing instruments and threading needles. In this way the surgeon was able to successfully finish the operation. Miss Batt then helped to evacuate men from the burning wards to safety.

Further awards given to Alice include a Bronze Medal of the Royal Humane Society for saving an 11-year-old girl from drowning in 1915, the Special Service Cross in 1917 from the British Red Cross, the badge of the Joint Council of the Red Cross and the order of St John, the British War Medal, and the Victory Medal. Clearly, a very brave, adventurous, and resourceful individual, Alice deserves her plaque and the opportunity for the people of Witney to know a little more about her.

The Mayor or Witney, Cllr Liz Duncan joined Oxfordshire Blue Plaque Board members, relatives of Alice Batt, other local dignitaries, Councillors and former Mayor, Peter Dorward who initially proposed the plaque, at the unveiling ceremony.

Active Travel Bingo – Enter to win Oxford Bus Museum family ticket

Active Travel Bingo Card

Complete the bingo card and claim a FREE Active Travel pencil! All entries will be in the draw to win a family ticket to Oxford Bus Museum.

Witney Town Council are set to celebrate World Car Free Day with a range of activities planned for Thursday 22nd September. World Car Free Day is celebrated all around the world, with towns and cities allowing people to experience streets free of motor traffic.

Whilst Witney Town Council are not closing any roads on the day, we are promoting Active Travel and have a number of activities organised. Traditionally we have hosted activities for children on the Market Square, however, International Car Free Day falls on a Thursday this year, and since that is market day in Witney, we are unable to use the space for street games.

We would still like to reach out to Witney children, and raise awareness of Active Travel, with that in mind we have produced ‘Active Travel Bingo’ – an eye-spy and task based worksheet to encourage children to engage in the outdoor environment on their way to school and at any other Active Travel opportunities during the week of Car Free Day. Please find a copy of the bingo card and entry form here.

Any child* completing the sheet is eligible to collect a FREE Active Travel pencil from our town centre office. All completed forms will be entered in a prize draw, one entrant will be randomly selected to win a family ticket to Oxford Bus Museum, worth £15.

Please join Witney Town Council in encouraging car free travel for the day of 22nd September.

*Any primary school aged child resident in Witney, or attending primary school in Witney.

Closing date 30th September 2022.
