The Snowflake Competition is now LIVE!!
Scattered around Bicester Town are 20 numbered snowflakes. All you have to do is find them and send your entry form into us at the Council Offices.
3 entrants will be picked at random by the Mayor and will each win a Kindle Fire and the opportunity to switch on Bicester’s Christmas Lights on Thursday 1st December.
The competition is open to all primary school children in Bicester and surrounding villages and closes on Thursday 24th November. If you haven’t received an entry form via your school you can download one by clicking here. Alternatively, you can pick one up from our offices in Garth Park or at the customer services desk in Sainsbury’s.
Keep your eye out for clues that we will add to our website over the next few weeks!! To start you off, the first snowflake can be found in the Bicester Town Council window in Crown Walk.
This competition has been sponsored by Sainsbury’s and is supported by Cherwell District Council.

Bicester Town Council are thrilled to welcome Cllr Jolanta Lis as the new Mayor of Bicester. Monday’s Mayor Making ceremony was a fantastic evening with many community groups coming together. We are sure that Jolanta will be an excellent Mayor and we wish her and her consort Lars, every success for the forthcoming year. Her charities for the year will be the Hummingbird Centre, local scouting groups and the Army Cadet Force.
Bicester Town Council are delighted to announce that the majority of the new play area at Garth Park is now open.
Please be assured that we are working hard to ensure we can open the remaining area as soon as possible.
