The parish has bought and installed new salt bins, each supplied with gloves and a shovel. One is located by the old telephone exchange in Kingston Blount, the other at the junction of the B4009 and the turn into Aston Rowant. Each will be filled with salt by Oxfordshire County Council. The council would like to politely reminder villagers to replace the gloves and shovel after use.
Two more salt bins for Aston Rowant – one at the bottom of School Lane by the Green and the other at the junction of Aston Gardens where it meets the road – have been bought and will be installed in time.
