Adderbury Brownies needs Volunteers and Helpers

We are hoping to recruit new volunteers and helpers for the Adderbury Brownie Unit. We would love to hear from anyone who can offer some time in any way possible to help run our Brownie unit – whether that’s as a leader, an occasional helper or administration support. It’s a really fun way to help the community and keeps the lovely traditions of Girl Guiding alive. Young people who are looking for volunteer work and experience are welcome, people who were Girl Guides themselves many, many moons ago and just about everyone in between – no matter your experience or how much time you have to spare.  Nicky Hart AdderburyBrownies@gmail.com

Are You Ready for a Good Walk?

A new Walking for Health group has started in Adderbury by local resident John Bellinger, who recently completed a volunteer walk leader’s course as part of an accredited scheme set up by Cherwell District Council, supported by funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery and Macmillan. John took to regular walking when just prior to lock-down his doctor recommended daily walks of at least three miles a day and now he walks at least five miles every day! January walks are on Monday 17 and Thursday 27.
