Red Kites.  The Parish Council would like to urge residents not to feed the Red Kites in the village.   The birds should be left to feed naturally in the wider countryside.  As well as being much better for the welfare of the birds to eat a natural diet, concerns have been expressed about the birds picking up chicken and other meat and then dropping pieces of food and bones into other gardens where children and dogs or cats could pick it up and cause themselves injury.




THIS IS A MESSAGE TO ALL DOG OWNERS.    Dogs fouling in public open spaces and on footpaths in Berinsfield.   Unfortunately despite constant requests by way of articles on Your Village Voice, requests on this website and posters in the village for dog owners to act responsibly and pick up their dog’s litter and dispose of it in one of the many dog litter bins located around the village, there are still a few dog owners who are allowing their dogs to foul on public footpaths and green open spaces and are not picking up their dog’s litter.   This action will not be tolerated and action will be taken.    

IT IS AN OFFENCE  not to clear up the mess if your dog fouls in a public place, including the recreation ground, pavements, grass verges and small green spaces and fines of up to £1000.00 are being imposed on offenders.   Not only is dog mess unpleasant it causes serious health problems, particularly in children who are more likely to ingest it while they are playing.   The result of this can be very unpleasant and lead to loss of eyesight.  

 There is a supply of free dog litter bags in the dispenser by the pavilion to be used if anyone forgets to take bags out with them.




The Parish Council is receiving numerous complaints about hedges that are overhanging pavements in Berinsfield,    If you have a hedge planted in the garden of your property it is your responsibility to keep it cut back from the public highway, which includes pavements.  If you have difficulty doing this yourself, Your Village Voice contains details of local contractors who you could engage to carry out the work for you.    If  the hedges are not cut back, Oxfordshire County Council will, after notifying you, arrange for them to be cut and you will be charged for the work.



This is the official website of Berinsfield Parish Council which has been designed and constructed to provide what we hope will be a valuable resource of information to all residents, employers or visitors to the village.

We see it as a vehicle to find out more about what is happening within the Council and the wider Berinsfield community.

We wish for the site to be proactive as possible
and to be a two way channel of advice assistance and information between its residents and the Parish Council.

It will be achieved by:

  1. Involving local people more in what is happening in the village
  2. Improving communication
  3. Engaging everyone in local issues
  4. Providing a platform for the Village and its Organisations
