Village fete thank you

The Fête Committee would like to say a huge thank you to all those who helped make the 7th of May such an enormous success. The raffle and various stalls took over £4000 – an excellent result!


There were several helpers who not only put in hours at the Fête itself but also extra hours collecting equipment and putting up tents and gazebos, not to mention clearing up afterwards! The committee applauds their efforts and also appreciates the regular stall holders, all those who came up with brilliant ideas for stalls and games and, of course, those who came along to support the event! We were blessed with the weather and sunshine and it was a superb afternoon  all round.Many of the ‘old guard’ are retiring, so next year we will need a new committee with new ideas and energy. Hopefully there will be willing volunteers to keep this traditional day going.

If you would like to be part of taking this forward please get in touch with Mary Greene at


Thank you again,

The Fête Committee

Transport News

Dear All


As many people know, we've been uncertain what would happen with the 94A bus service which allows villagers to travel on the 'school bus' during term time only following the one-year trial period that began last July. The DVTG has just had notice from Thames Travel that the 94/94A will be continuing to operate until at least the end of March 2018. Our goal now is to help the bus route become commercially viable, so that when the next review occurs, we again keep our service.

The DVTG would like to thank all the residents of our villages who use the buses - and also all who have attended meetings about our bus services, sent in their views on the buses, and/or written to local politicians: it's been great to hear how important the bus is in people's lives and to get a sense of our residents' commitment to keeping vital services available for everyone.  

Please do keep using the bus - and if you aren't already using it, try it out! Even if you only use it once a month, you're still helping to maintain the service.

And please do also use the bus to Wallingford on a Friday and the Tesco bus on Mondays and Wednesdays.
