As you will see from my last post, I was elected to serve as Chairman of Oxfordshire County Council in May this year after the elections. It has been so busy since then, that I have not had the time to update my blog posts with all of the 35 events that I have attended so far. However, for all those who have Twitter accounts, I have made sure that I have tweeted many of the events that I have attended. Do feel free to click on the 'Twitter' feed at the left hand side of this page and you will see this.
The photograph above captures me presenting the Earth Trust, based at Little Wittenham, South Oxfordshire, with a rose plant which is a tradition that has been held for many years with the County Council and the Earth Trust. The rose is a symbol of the peppercorn rent presented to the Trust to ensure that the public are given free access to this beautiful countryside in Oxfordshire. Many family events and activities are held here in the summer, so I am sure that a browse of their website at: www.earthtrust.org.uk will give plenty of information on this, especially as the school summer holidays draw near.
