Adderbury Cricket Needs You!

Fancy a game?

Well you never know, Adderbury might get our cricket field back, but in the meantime we will have to make do with the 24th staging of the annual needle match against the boys from Milton.

This year the big match will be on Sunday September 2nd at Broughton and North Newington CC at 2pm. The Adderbury side will be fighting to regain their hold on the Millennium Trophy, inaugurated as part of the village celebrations in 1995.

Happy Third Birthday Adderbury Wheels

Adderbury Wheels are celebrating their three years of riding through the rain, wind, snow and even this summer’s beautiful sunshine.

The friendly group meet on Weds evenings for 6.30pm start (from Early April to when the clocks go backs in Oct) and EVERY Saturday. They always meet outside Adderbury library.

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.

Adderbury Church Lottery Winner

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.
