Steeple Barton is in North Oxfordshire, halfway between Oxford and Banbury and is one of two villages that comprise the Bartons, the other being Westcote Barton.

In medieval times there was a sizeable settlement near Steeple Barton. However, following the Black Death and when the population was restored the people moved to the central part and this area was called Middle Barton. This is where most of the people live but is not a parish. Only Steeple Barton has a parish council and this is the official site of that parish.

Please the contact the Clerk via email if you have questions concerning the work of the Parish Council, if you have any concerns that you feel the Council should be aware of or where it can help or support you.

Met Office Red Warning Extreme Heat

17 July 2022

Good morning,

 

The Met Office have now issued a red extreme heat warning for Monday and Tuesday next week, covering parts of Oxfordshire. I have attached the warning to this email for you to see.

 

Level 4 - Emergency

https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/heat-health/?tab=heatHealth&season=normal#?tab=heatHealth

There is a 100 % probability of Heat-Health Alert criteria being met between 0000 on Monday and 0000 on Wednesday in parts of England.

 

What to expect

  • Population-wide adverse health effects experienced, not limited to those most vulnerable to extreme heat, leading to serious illness or danger to life. Government advice is that 999 services should be used in emergencies only; seek advice from 111 if you need non-emergency health advice.
  • Substantial changes in working practices and daily routines will be required
  • High risk of failure of heat-sensitive systems and equipment, potentially leading to localised loss of power and other essential services, such as water or mobile phone services
  • Significantly more people visiting coastal areas, lakes and rivers, leading to an increased risk of water safety incidents
  • Delays on roads and road closures, along with delays and cancellations to rail and air travel, with significant welfare issues for those who experience even moderate delays

Many thanks,

James
