Cold Weather Message From Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police have sent a really helpful message to remind us of the problems that this returning cold weather may cause. They are particularly concerned about ensuring we keep warm and what to do if there is a power failure.

Please have a look and whilst thinking about your own home consider talking to vulnerable people in the neighbourhood who might also need a hand.

Day of Dance – 28 April

Warning – Telephone Scam

The caller is stating that the resident owes them a lot of money.  Fortunately, to date, no personal details have been disclosed.

If you should receive a call from anyone claiming to be from HM Customs, or the like, and that you owe serious amounts of money please do not give any personal details out.

Adderbury Running Club News

Ten years ago, in early 2008, a small group of runners met in The Bell one evening for the first get-together of Adderbury Running Club.  On Friday 9 March they held their eighth Annual Dinner, which this year was at the Red Lion.  Jo Redford presented the trophies for 2017: Club Championship winner and ARCadian of the year (the first time two trophies have been awarded to the same person) was Caroline Richards and Club Championship runner-up was Suzie Taylor.  Well done to Caroline and Suzie!

The club’s main event each year is the Three Spires Challenge, which features a Half Marathon Run, Half Marathon Walk, 10k Run, 5k Fun Run and Junior Runs (for ages 4–10).  This year the Challenge will be on Sunday 9 July and there are Early Bird entries available until 31 March.

ARC caters for runners of all abilities and no one gets left behind.  For more details, please contact Joanna Edwards

Adderbury Stores Latest

Mr Singh is now stocking fresh flowers -ready for Mother’s Day – and has a new fresh bread range, and a number of special offers to tempt you.

He was delighted with the increase in business during the bad weather and hopes the village will continue to support him.

One very satisfied customer wrote in:

“I would just like to say the store was open all day yesterday (frozen Friday) I would like to thank them for providing that service in tough conditions. The shop is the only one in the village and those that can’t drive or feel unsafe driving in these conditions have a vital lifeline there for provisions. They are new owners and really making a go of it, the new owner is friendly and helpful. The store is a vital part of the community and I use it regularly. I ask everyone to support the village store as we may need it sometime and it may not be there if we don’t! Thank you”
