Residents may have noticed new road safety signs around the village. Designed by pupils at Long Wittenham Primary School the signs have been located along village roadsides urging drivers to take extra care and slow down.
Altogether eleven of the colourful signs are in place. One is outside the entrance to Bodkin’s Field where new play equipment was recently installed and two are in Northfield Lane. Six are located on the approach to the village along Little Wittenham Road and a further two in West End near the bend close to the Three Poplars mobile homes park.
Parish councillors Steve Brown and Gordon Rogers, helped by Wittenham Warriors member Emma Newman, judged a large collection sent in by the school children. The winning signs cost more than £100 and were paid for by the parish council.
