The Rural Oxfordshire Network

The Rural Oxfordshire Network, RON, was formed two years ago to fill the gap left when the long running Rural Issues Café was disbanded.

RON was created with the intention of holding two seminars a year, to be attended by any person or organisation interested in matters rural. Many local organisations attend including the Oxfordshire Association of Local Councils represented by Catherine Hitchens. Topics so far have included rural crime, rural isolation and care in the rural community (including end-of-life care). The events attract excellent speakers.

The fifth seminar is on Tuesday 11th June with the title, ‘Rural Transport.’ For more information contact Kathy Shaw at or Catherine Hitchens
