Oakley & Deane Parish Council
During the summer of 2017 two local companies carried out projects in Oakley as part of their 'Helping the Community'
Wates spent a day in June, clearing a very overgrown footpath along the top of the railway cutting between the Hill Road and St Johns Road bridges. Their hard work produced a footpath which can be used again by residents without the fear of becoming entangled in brambles. In addition, the company made a donation to Oakley Community Association from their annual charity budget.
In August, a group from Bombay Sapphire spent a day removing the small paving slabs between the memorial tablets in the cremation areas in our Burial Ground and filling the spaces with gravel. Many visitors to the Burial Ground since the work has been done have commented on the huge improvement to the visual look it has made,
