Knitting Group

The knitting group meets in the Methodist Hall every Monday afternoon between 2.30 pm and 4.00 pm and will finish at the end of June for the summer recess.  We’ll be starting again in September and meet on the first and third Mondays of each month. This is a very informal group who knit squares for blankets or other much needed items, for refugees. We also enjoy a chat and a cup of tea. If you would prefer not to knit, but would rather sew squares together, that too would be very welcome. We are always grateful for double knitting wool, of any colour other than white, and size 8 needles.  Drop in and see what we do and just sit and have a cup of tea with us!

Netball

Have you been caught up in the recent excitement of the Commonwealth Games on The Gold Coast? The England netball team, the Roses, were victorious and took the gold medal home after nailbiting semis and a breathtaking final against Australia who have been unbeaten for what seems like forever!! The Roses have been fighting for the top position in recent years but have never gained it until now. Many people have been newly excited by netball as a spectator sport and in recent years England netball has launched a nationwide back to netball scheme that has been hugely successful in boosting local team numbers and encouraging ladies and girls to play for fun and fitness.

Opinions on Application for Change of use to Land North of Milton Road

Go to www.cherwell-dc.gov.uk; Planning; View a planning application; 18/00220/F.
It appears that a considerable amount of work has yet to be done to get this application to any sort of acceptable format. It now seems likely that consideration of it by the full Planning Committee will be delayed into June at the earliest.
In view of the progress to date one must wonder at the capabilities of those submitting this application.’
