SODC – Spring copy of OUTLOOK – Please note, after more than 20 years of production, we have taken the decision to stop printing and delivering a paper copy of Outlook to every house in South Oxfordshire. This move will pave the way for us to provide a new online news centre, which we will launch alongside a new council website later this year.
Be Water Aware this summer
With the weather warming up, long sunny days and the summer holidays in sight, there is a temptation to cool off in one of Oxfordshire’s many rivers and inland waterways. And while there may not be any river monsters waiting down there, unfortunately rivers and waterways can be very dangerous places – 255 people accidentally drowned in 2017 in the UK.
That’s why, at this time of year, Oxfordshire’s Fire and Rescue Service is reminding all residents to Be Water Aware to help everyone stay safe this summer.

Float: tell them to float on their back Throw: something that floats … and don’t jump in yourself
