Memory Makers, Exploring Diaries from Pepys to Today – 21 August

Adderbury Library is hosting an informal discussion on what is so fascinating about diaries – real-life and fictional, on paper and online – and the writers whose memories they hold.

You are invited to go along and share recommendations of diaries you’ve enjoyed reading and then perhaps you can go home with lots of ideas for your next read.

Adderbury Library 21 August 15:30 – 17:00

Tickets are free from Adderbury Library or online oxonlibraries.eventbrite.co.uk

Fantastic Day for The Three Spires Challenge

Last Sunday, 8 July, 175 hardy runners and walkers endured the scorching heat to take part in the 11th Three Spires Challenge.

The organisers would like to thank all of them for supporting the event – as well as the “awesomely helpful and friendly” marshals and to Nick Fennell on the mike.

Chris Leslie Wows Adderbury!

Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported Chris Leslie’s concert last Saturday night in St Mary’s Church raising the fantastic amount of £1836 for FOSMA.  It was a truly magical evening.
