St Mary’s Church Bellringers

The sound of church bells ringing on Sundays and for special occasions is part of English life. We have eight lovely bells in the Adderbury church but to keep them ringing we need some new ringers to join the existing band.

Help Us Plan GP Services – Now and for the Future

There will be a meeting in Banbury on Tuesday 21 November starting at 6.30 pm and finishing at 8.00 pm (venue to be confirmed). Local GP practices have been working with Oxfordshire CCG and patient representatives on plans for the future of GP and primary care services in Oxfordshire.

Oxfordshire Survey of People Living in Recently Build Houses

Oxfordshire County Council is currently carrying out a short, census style survey of households occupying homes that were built in the county over the last ten years.  The survey is designed to understand what type of services and other infrastructure the community needs.  This information will be used when negotiating the contribution developers should make to support further housing growth.

Survey forms were sent out to most new households at the beginning of October, with a deadline for the return of completed forms of Friday 17th November.

So for those of you who are living in recently built homes it would be really helpful if you could complete the survey.  More information can be found where you can also complete the survey on line.
