The Baldons Neighbourhood Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan is important because it will give residents a say on future development in the Baldons. The Parish Council shares the view that people will want to take the opportunity to influence the future of the place where they live or work and that the Plan for the Parish should be written by the Parish rather than by Planning Officers.

The plan is expected to be published later this year.

Ride and Stride

Annual Cycle Ride and Stride for Oxfordshire Historic Churches - Saturday 9th September 2017


The Baldons historic churches of St Lawrence and St Peter village assets and the buildings have been a part of our community landscape for many hundreds of years. Each year the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust - which is a charity dedicated to the preservation of these buildings - organises a sponsored "Ride and Stride" event to encourage people to visit these places and to raise money for their renovation and improvement.

For anybody interested in visiting these historic places and for those that care for their place in our community this is a great opportunity to engage, and to have some fun, and get a bit fitter!

Anybody interested in taking part, either as part of a Baldons Team or on their own or as a family, should contact Stephen Dance on stephen.dance@me.com  for details. We welcome people of all abilities and interests and will find a route to suit. If anyone is interested in sponsoring there is a Just Giving Page set up: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ian-gillespie3.

Incidentally, it looks as if St Peters will be a recipient of a significant grant to kick start its campaign to support planned improvement works there over the next year or so.
