We would like to congratulate Cllr Stephen Boulton who, at the Annual Meeting, was chosen by his fellow Councillors to become the Mayor of Fairford. “I am honoured to have been chosen to represent my town in this way.

Release date: 9 May 2017

A resident  in the Cotswolds has received a telephone call from a ‘company’ which allegedly works for Cotswold District Council. He was told that he was due to receive a £6,000 council tax refund because his Council Tax banding has been too high in the past.

The telephone number of the bogus company is 03332 123132.

Please be aware that this scam may be targeting many residents in this area and please do not enter into any discussions with the caller.  Most importantly, do not disclose any personal information such as banking details.

The local police have been made aware of this scam.


The Annual Town Meeting will be taking place at 7pm on Thursday 25th May in the Farmor Room, The Community Centre, Fairford. Please come along and listen to what the Town, District and County Council has been doing over the past year and to find out what the next developments for Fairford are.

Representatives from the Police and other groups in the Town will also be reporting on their activities. There will be an open session where you will be able to voice any concerns you have to the respective representatives. Please join us for an informal, informative meeting. Refreshments will be available. The Agenda will be published next week.

WILD – Project – Volunteers required

Volunteering activity

Would you be interested in taking part in volunteering activity to help with habitat improvement on the River Coln in Fairford? The WILD project (www.fwagsw.org.uk/what-we-do/projects/wild-project/) has identified some small-scale enhancement works that could be undertaken along the Coln, to the south of the town and has agreement to carry these out. An objective of the WILD project is to enable local communities to work to improve the water environment and as such there is an opportunity to take forward some of the tasks. 

Depending on interest levels, an initial plan is to undertake a volunteering day on a weekend some time in late April or May. 

If you are interested in getting involved and would like to find out more, please contact Paul Taylor at paul.taylor43@sky.com or call 07793 038586
