The Welcome to Langford leaflet is here

Do you know of new people who’re moving onto Langford Village?

Langford Village Community Association and FLTR Coffee have recently worked together to produce a leaflet with essential local information to assist all Langford newcomers as they start to settle in here.

All our local Bicester estate agents and letting agencies now have supplies of the leaflet to hand out and there are also some in FLTR and at the Langford Village Community Centre Hall, in Nightingale Place, OX26 6XX.

Please ask any new residents if they’ve received a leaflet and, if they haven’t got one, encourage them to pick up a copy soon – or you could help out by dropping a copy to them.

Many thanks,

Carole, Chairman LVCA

Langford’s New Bus Service Goes Live

PLEASE ‘USE IT OR LOSE IT’

Langford Village now has a Monday to Saturday bus service on a restricted timetable. It would be wonderful to get a more comprehensive timetable, however it all depends on usage. This is the number 108 bus.

You can catch a bus into Bicester town centre at 11.00am and 14.10pm and there are returns from the town centre at 11.20am and 14.30pm – far from perfect however it’s a start.

I am concerned that there are people living on Langford Village who may still be unaware of this service. Please would you let any neighbours know who may not be on social media. Although the service exists it’s not being well used currently.

Many thanks, Carole – Chairman Langford Village Community Association ( LVCA)

(Please see the timetable posted here and please address any questions or enquires about the service direct to the Oxford Bus Company, which runs it.)

LANGFORD NO.27 BUS SERVICE TO END

Important news is emerging about the 27 bus service for Langford residents. This service will no longer run after 4th September 2022. For more information please click here to read the information provided by Councillor Calum Miller.

The 27 bus will no longer run through Langford

Changes to 27 bus timetable

The number 27 bus timetable is changing from 1st November. The present school bus service route that was introduced on the 27 is being dropped, as it’s clear that nobody is using it. The new timetable is simpler and as shown.

Water Level in Langford Brook

Do you know that during times of rain it’s easy to follow the water levels of Langford Brook?

The app here indicates that – usually quite close to real time – for viewing whenever you wish.

Our picture is from 04.10.20 when the Brook burst its banks in a number of places and flooded some of the paths and playing fields when the level was at 1.66m. The area near the bridge and towards London Road was particularly affected by water completely covering the footpaths.

Neighbourhood Policing

Thames Valley PoliceBicester police sergeant Steve Willis has sent the following message to the LVCA with a request to pass this on to Langford residents:

As the Sergeant of the Bicester Town Neighbourhood Policing Team, I am committed to providing team members who the community can recognise and work with to resolve the policing issues that matter most to them.

Neighbourhood Policing is a collective effort and involves a range of partner agencies and local residents working together to direct the police response. Its success relies on the public telling the police what its concerns are. Through public engagement, we are seeking to identify the top three priorities that the community of Bicester would like the Neighbourhood Policing team and partners to tackle over the next twelve months.

Over the next year we will as a team be focusing on the newly set priorities and will be providing regular community feedback on the progress being made by the police and our partners. However, a new strand of our problem solving approach will be to encourage community resilience and we will be looking at setting up initiatives such as Community Speed Watch and involving community volunteers on a greater scale.

Any feedback on what you feel the three policing priorities should be for Bicester will be gratefully received and will help shape our service provision over the year to come. Residents comments can be sent to BicesterTownNHPT@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk
