Identifying HS2 workers – important

Last week two strangers were seen walking round the allotments wearing hi-vis jackets.  When questioned they claimed to be from HS2.  Nigel Galletly (our PC Chairman) queried this with HS2 who have denied that they were their employees.

Subsequently Hs2 have send this image of the HS2 branded clothing that HS2 employees and contractors will be wearing.

If anyone spots someone in the village wearing hi-vis, please challenge them if they are not wearing this clothing (or even if they are and not where they are meant to be), and let us know so we can inform HS2 and/or the police.



Village Fete

The Chipping Warden Spring Fete and Dog Show was held on the 30th April – we were very lucky with the weather and it was a great success.  Over £3500 was raised for the Church and the Chipping Warden Sports Club.  A huge thank you to everyone who came and everyone who helped.

Website relaunch!

The Chipping Warden and Edgcote Parish Council website has been relaunched.

The site is designed not only to ensure that all Parish Council documentation is easy to access and read, but also to provide an umbrella site for all other village organisations.  Several are included at launch – but these can be added to as the site evolves.

In addition, it will provide another way for HS2 to communicate with the village now that the HS2 Bill has been given Royal Assent and construction of both the bypass and the line will go ahead.

Please send ideas, feedback, news items, calendar entries, photos or any other content to


National Garden Scheme in Chipping Warden June 2017

On 4 June the Court House and Spring Cottage gardens opened for the afternoon for the first time under the NGS programme for cancer charities. Despite a dramatic cloud burst, over 150 visitors enjoyed spectacular borders, beautiful flowers, timeless trees, secret spaces and breathtaking views. Delicious teas were provided by Barbara Bartlett and her team, the proceeds of which have gone towards our church.

Many congratulations to Michelle Clamp, who has nurtured both gardens to their stunning best and also to John Bullock who has been equally indispensable at the Court House.

Both gardens anticipate taking part again in 2018 and maybe others will feel inspired to open up their gates too!
