Communications Report

To receive the report of the Communications & Community Engagement Officer.



The Committee received and considered the report of the Communications and Community Engagement Officer (CCEO).


Members were disappointed to hear  the annual newsletter distribution had been delayed and sporadic. The supplier had apologised for the poor service which resulted in some residents not being made aware of the Annual Town Meeting on 15 March.


Next, members discussed the proposal to change the Council’s website provider and reviewed the options presented, then chose a preferred style for the CCEO to progress.


The Committee discussed the vandalism to the noticeboard at The Leys and agreed a replacement should be installed on the Coffee Shed, subject to their approval. The Town Clerk responded to a Member’s question as to why the noticeboard was removed from outside the Woolgate Shopping Centre, she advised it had become disorganised and unkempt and was under the remit of West Oxfordshire District Council (WODC).




1.      That, the report be noted and,

2.      That, the noticeboard at The Leys be replaced and installed on the wall of the Coffee Shed providing they agree and,

3.      That, the CCEO explores the chosen Website style with the provider as presented and,

4.      That, the Council writes to WODC with a request to reinstall the noticeboard outside the Woolgate shopping centre for the use of residents and community groups.
