On Saturday 15th December, Chinnor Community Church (CCC) will enact a roaming Carol Service - ´Star Walk´. This event is suitable for

all the family. Hot chocolate (optional) at 5.15 pm will be provided at the Sports Pavilion in readiness for the start of the first 'scene' of the

'Star Walk' (Carnival) at the shelter behind the Pavilion at 5.30 pm. Along the way various mini pop-up scenes can be experienced and

enjoyed depicting the Christmas Story. The route of the procession will follow up Station Road, along Church Road, down the High

Street until it finally comes to rest at 'The Stable' – Chinnor Community Church. Arriving at approximately 6.30 pm. Join in with

the Wise Men as they search for the Baby Jesus, see the reaction of Herod to the news of this new King, watch the shepherds on the

hillside as the angel tells of this birth. A Star will light the way and the manger will be carried to its resting place in the stable. Lanterns will

be available to carry, but torches are also recommended. The final scene will be played out in the garden of Chinnor Community

Church where those not wishing to walk can join in these proceedings. To rest our weary feet from the walk, inside the 'Stable'

there will be the opportunity to watch the film 'It's a Boy' and to sing carols rejoicing at the birth of Jesus. Mulled wine and mince pies will

end the evening.

Maps of the route are available to collect from the CPC office.

Thought for the week...



Where does your waste from the Black bin (general waste) go to?



Where then I hear you ask...

Ardley - a State of the Art Recycling Centre for our black bins (general waste) 

Our waste is taken to this centre from holding depots around the area and burnt in an enormous furnace.  

The energy created is pushed into the National Grid and services thousands of homes with their electrical power.  

The residue from this furnace is used as aggregate to build roads.  

All impurities given off such as heavy metals are collected through a series of filters and mixed with a carbon material also collected and created from waist products and made into building materials to build our houses. These blocks actually absorb carbon dioxide from our atmosphere which cleans the air we breath.

Only clean steam is given off by this huge recycling machine. 

The whole site is ultra clean and health and safety is top of the agenda

Any thing in our black bins gets used at Ardley but if you put incorrect items in our Green recycling bin it ends up in LAND FILL it does not then go to Ardley and used.


If in doubt and if you are unsure if its a recycle item... pop it in your General waste bin to avoid excessive landfill deposits.

Chinnor Neighbourhood Development Plan – Review



Why Chinnor needs to undertake a Site Allocation review

In the closing stages of the preparation of Chinnor's Neighbourhood Plan - a Ministerial Statement called for Neighbourhood Development Plans to contain nominated development sites so as to strengthen the Plan. No selected sites were included in Chinnor NDP being that the two preferred sites (CHI 7 and CHI 8) plus one reserved site (CHI 20) had already been granted planning permission. As the Plans preparation was nearing completion and rather than delay submission for approval and referendum by adding selected development sites it was decided to complete the plan without allocated sites. The aim then was to review the Plan following adoption with the objective of incorporating allocated sites,  to meet this requirement, thus ensuring that the Chinnor Neighbourhood Plan would be amended to keep up to date with changes in the NDP process.  It was then understood that such a review would be a proportional task, requiring an amendment/update and not the production of a new plan.

Several positive meetings with SODC, Chinnor Parish Council and the Steering Group have now taken place, late in 2017 and in early 2018, and work has now commenced on the preparation of the Site Allocation requirement with the aim of meeting the required processes to get the review adopted at the earliest opportunity to gain the maximum control.
