The Town Council would respectfully like to ask people not to put their household refuse, contents of animal litter trays etc., into the bins in the Walnut Tree Field. These bins are emptied by a volunteer who has to move the contents to a bin at the Croft entrance to the park, which is then collected by Cotswold District Council. Household waste has been found in one of the bins which has been extremely heavy to move. If you do not have a black wheely bin for any reason, please contact Cotswold District Council who will provide this for you. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less

A new plaque to commemorate the historic connection between Fairford and Concorde has been installed in the Market Place on the wall of the Bull Hotel.
Fairford resident, Doug Newton, Coordinator of the Concorde (Flight Test) Association and Concorde Flight Test Inspector (retired) writes: “Concorde 002G-BSST flew into RAF Fairford on 9th April 1969 to begin extensive flight testing that would last until 1976/7. It was joined soon after by Concorde G-AXDN and G-BBDG. On behalf of the Concorde (Flight Test) Association I am proud to sponsor the plaque. It serves as a thank you to Fairford residents and the Town Council for hosting us during those pioneering years that enabled us to present Concorde G-BOAA to British Airways in January 1976 for use as an airliner. I was fortunate enough to be on that delivery flight from Fairford to Heathrow. Production aircraft then flew from Filton, reaching Mach 2 - 1,350mph, on their first flights, before being delivered to British Airways. May I also record a big thank you to our partners in Toulouse, France who shared the project with us. Fairford should be very proud of the connection with the pioneering days of supersonic flight!”
