Charlbury has a good rail link to London/Hereford.
Most parish residents commute out of the community for work or study, with many households owning two or more vehicles – which means that there are often a lot of vehicles trying to fit into our narrow lanes and onto verges; we are all asked to be mindful of neighbours access, verges and green spaces.

The Women’s Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War. Since then the organisation’s aims have broadened and the WI is now the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK.
The WI celebrated its centenary in 2015 and has over 210,000 members in around 6,600 WIs.
The WI plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

Do you need help with jobs around the house, light gardening, shopping, walking or feeding a pet, filling in forms, transport to medical appointments, or support as a young mum, after a hospital discharge… Good Neighbours provides support to all members of Chadlington, Dean, Spelsbury and Taston. Good Neighbours are happy to help anyone, regardless of age, and can offer a wide range of support – if they cannot help they will try to suggest other options for support. All Good Neighbours volunteers live in the community, many are familiar faces, they are all police checked through the Disclosure and Barring Service and carry ID. It is important to remember that they are volunteers, not professionals, and there are some things they will not be able to help with, such as providing personal care. Telephone 07541 235002 for more information on receiving support or becoming a volunteer.
