As is very apparent from reading the comments and suggestions in this questionnaire, Souldern is a beautiful village nestled in the heart of Oxfordshire and we are very lucky to live here.

What is also apparent is that during the time that it has taken to collect and collate the information in this booklet Souldern has not been standing still and many important issues have already been addressed and realised such as faster broadband, the village website, dog bins, regular community events, church and chapel working together to provide for the needs of children, young people and families etc.

The Parish Council work tirelessly on behalf of the community making decisions and keeping residents informed. This survey will help in the future, when important issues which may affect everyone, are being addressed.

So thank you particularly to everyone who cares enough to have taken the time and the trouble to voice your opinions, ideas and concerns. Without you this picture for the way forward would not have been painted.

At the back of this booklet is some useful information and the contact details of people to approach should you wish to be involved, organise or contribute in any way to continuing all the good work and activities that are already taking place.
