Temporary Road Closure – 22 May for 9 Weeks Tanners Lane & The Leys

A request has been received from Skanska on behalf of Thames Water for a temporary road closure to apply to a section of Adderbury, Tanners Lane & The Leys whilst essential service pipe replacement works are carried out.

A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) is being made to implement the temporary closure and will operate from 22 May 2017 for approximately 9 weeks.  The works will be carried out in 3 phases to lessen the impact on local residents.

‘Adderbury Wheels’

We had a lovely ride last Wednesday meeting outside the library from 6.30 pm. A “reverse” along the tow path from Banbury to home so only one “little” hill to climb up Twyford wharf. Plus got to see all the fluffy baby ducklings !! ah!. Started off just after the massive hail stones storm but it then cleared up to golden spring evening sunshine during the ride.

Neolithic Henge Site Unearthed in Adderbury

In 1995 Adderbury celebrated what it believed to be its 1,000 year anniversary, however, 6 months’ ago that assumed history changed due the results of a geophysical survey of the Milton Road North housing development land. The survey discovered enough evidence to suggest that Adderbury was a substantial settlement in 3,000 BC to 2,000 BC, a period that covers the Neolithic Age to the dawn of the early Bronze Age.

Adderbury Cubs Seek New Leaders

After giving this much thought, I have decided that I will be stepping down as Leader of 1st Adderbury Cubs, this year. I have been involved in scouting for 22 years now, and 10 years of that has been with the pack in Adderbury. Alongside me leaving, my brother Paul, has also decided to stand down. Paul has given even more than myself, with almost 25 years’ experience.
