Whilst all events are cancelled or postponed during the Covid-19 pandemic we are using this page to provide, what we hope will be, useful information

KBS NEWS recommends – Be aware, Be aware

There are many Genuine and Trustworthy people now offering help via social media and putting notes and leaflets through doors etc.      That's Wonderful, Fantastic and to be applauded.

However, we understand the Police have been made aware that a very few are not decent or honest.

Please be extra careful when accepting help from strangers.

If money is requested think at least twice or three times before handing any money over.


Due to the Coronavirus restrictions we are sorry to tell you we have not been able to deliver the May KBS News, as usual, to houses in Kingston Bagpuize & Southmoor.  Until the ‘going out’ restrictions are over and we return to a more normal life we anticipate further non delivery months.

However, we have placed a limited number of printed copies in:

The Southmoor One Stop Shop,

The Southmoor Co-op

The Kingston Bagpuize Co-op

Electronic copies can be found on the Village Website at  


on the Kingston Bagpuize with Southmoor Residents Facebook page
