Public Art

In 2021 the Vale of  White Horse District Council allocated funds to East Challow Parish Council (ECPC) for a Public Art project. The project is being funded from S106 money released by the development of land at Park Farm East Challow. After a consultation period it was decided to erect a piece of art that will feature a local artists impression of East Challow through the ages. The art will be located on the grass area between the A417 and Hedge Hill Road. It is thought that by emphasising that East Challow is a village, traffic speeds may be reduced. The new piece of art will be known as Public Art in Hedge Hill Road.

The image was approved by ECPC at the September 2023 Parish Council Meeting an details: prominent historical buildings, the village green and water pump, Wilts and Berks canal, ridge and furrowed contours on fields, and the windmill represents Windmill Hill. The image will be carved in wood on both sides in relief style. The image will be painted with the frame left unfinished.

In addition ECPC is liaising with St Nicholas C of E Primary School to prepare a time capsule to be buried in the foundations.

A planning application for the art was approved by the Vale on 29 May 2024.

Currently ECPC are seeking further money from the S106 project fund.

Our litter mapping project

Could you take part in our survey?

We want to know more about the litter that community litter pickers collect so we can target the worst areas and keep them cleaner for longer. If you do litter picking then it would be great if you could help us. We have an easy-to-follow record sheet to document the location and type of litter. This will go into our litter mapping project. Or you can use our online survey while you are on the litter pick (details at the bottom of the page).

What you will need to take part

  • A hi-viz jacket
  • A litter picker and/or gloves
  • A bag
  • A record sheet (see below)
  • A pen/pencil
  • Mobile phone or watch (to keep track of how long you are out for)

Ideally each survey should take place over a one hour period (although this can be divided up into shorter times if done in the same week)

Useful items to have with you:

  • A map or GPS device
  • A mobile phone (in case of emergencies)
  • A camera/mobile phone
  • A coat, hat and sunscreen – depending on the weather


  • Always let someone know where you will be or do the survey with someone else.
  • Stick to public land and stay away from busy roads with speed limits over 50mph.
  • All children must be supervised.
  • Cover any open cuts and wash your hands thoroughly afterwards.
  • Look out for sharp objects eg broken glass. If you come across any needles please leave them where they are and report their location to Biffa (number below)
  • ·Do not try to lift or move any large items such as tyres or car parts. These should be left where they are and again report to Biffa.
