Advanced warning to villagers of works on Eastmanton Lane in March/April

on Wed, 28/02/2018 - 12:31pm

The owners of 3, Eastmanton Cottages in Sparsholt wish to advise that some works to the perimeter of the property at the bottom end of Eastmanton Lane (at the junction with Pulpit Hill and Broadbrook Lane) will be carried out in March/April.

Once underway the works should take 1-2 weeks.

This will involve the carriageway being reduced in width with cones whilst certain works are underway. All efforts will be made to keep the road clean and any disruption to an absolute minimum. The carriageway will be clear out of working hours.

If you have any queries, please contact Guy Macaulay on


Could you help to keep Sparsholt & Westcot local roads gritted and salted?

on Thu, 22/02/2018 - 8:39am

OCC salt & grit the main county roads (including the B4507) when neccessary but our local village roads aren't covered.

Back in 2011, Sparsholt Parish Council put together an action plan to salt & grit the village roads.

Key locations were identified and volunteers put themselves forward to cover these areas when needed.

7 years later, new volunteers are needed to cover specific, small road sections around the parish.

If you'd like to help, please contact Sparsholt Parish Council clerk Debbie Lewis-Pryde:-
