In response to the worsening Public Health situation with the spread of the Covid-19 virus (known as Coronavirus), we would like to encourage the community of East Challow to support each other and if practicable provide support to their vulnerable, elderly and self-isolating neighbours.
Please look out for a neighbour you know might need a little more support, or you haven’t seen for a while. Without putting yourself at risk, be aware of those who are living around you who may not have family nearby, who may need help with shopping or collecting medication etc.
Similarly, if you are over 70 or fall into one of the other vulnerable groups and feel that you are in need of assistance in any way do please also feel free to contact any of us below.
If you feel that you can offer help to someone in the village even just to chat on the phone to someone who is lonely in isolation, please contact one of the following members of the Parish Council on the following numbers.
Paul Barrow: 01235 771162
Sarah Parker:01235 762565

East Challow is about 1 mile west of Wantage and about 8 miles south east of Faringdon in the Vale of the White Horse. The village has grown significantly over the last 100 years and currently comprises approximately 377 residences. We have an excellent primary school, St Nicholas Church, The Mission meeting house, a large village hall, a cricket club, and a branch of the Royal British Legion.
The purpose of this website is to improve communication between the Parish Council and the community it serves and to increase community participation in the Parish.
On this website you will find information of significance to our community, and local news. which we hope this will give some insight into village life.
This website is maintained by East Challow Parish Council and is still under development.
