Don’t let the sparks fly this winter

Nearly 50% of all chimney fires in Oxfordshire happen during January, February and March. If you enjoy cosying up in front of a log fire, make sure the sparks don't fly at home this winter.


Have a cosy home not a fire zone
• Get your chimney swept at least once a year, if you regularly have log fires get it swept more frequently
• If you have a 1st floor fireplace check that it is clear of debris
• Store logs away from the fireplace

Milton Choir

The Milton Choir meets every Thursday in St Blaise Church from 7.00pm - 8.30pm.
We sing a range of songs, expertly led by our choir leader, Charlotte, who also runs a similar choir in Appleford.
You can just come along when you can, we are all novices who just enjoy singing.
We have found it great fun and any of you who heard us at the Christmas Service will hopefully agree we didn't sound too bad and that was only after a few weeks.
Why not get off your sofa on a Thursday evening and give it a go?
