Kineton Driver Banned for Accident which led to Horse’s Death and Rider’s Severe Injuries

A local driver has been disqualified following  a serious injury collision with a horse and rider.

The incident on 2 January 2023 saw the horse put down by a vet on the roadside in Kineton and the female rider suffering life-changing injuries.

Christopher John Wixey, 76, of Banbury St, Kineton, was disqualified from driving for 12 months, and required to take an extended test of competence before he can drive again.  He was also fined £540. He had earlier pleaded guilty.

Avon Dassett have requested the ‘pass wide and slow’ signs for Farnborough Lane but these are yet to materialise.

Electric Vehicle Charging in Avon Dassett

Residents may be aware that Warwickshire County Council recently received £3.3 million of funding to provide more publicly available electrical vehicle chargers in the county.
It is very important that rural communities, like Avon Dassett, get their share of this funding. Phil Baxter is leading a project to consider possible sites for electrical vehicle chargers in the village and to lobby the County Council to support their installation. If you would like to know more or be part of the project please contact Phil: or 07805 061 419
