Adderbury Institute

Reopening Plan for Adderbury Institute – current position as at 12 September.   In line with a large number of other community venues Adderbury Institute remains closed at the moment. Around mid-August, after being advised we could look into reopening, the Committee began work considering how this could be achieved safely, within current guidance and whilst protecting the Institute’s volunteers and contractors, users and the wider general public.  A comprehensive risk assessment draft was completed and discussed by the Committee.  The cost of implementing the risk assessment requirements were calculated at over £1,000.

On Saturday – 12 September BBOWT (Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust) will be at the Adderbury Lakes all day (about 10.00 am to 3.00 pm) to give information about wildlife / BBOWT etc in this area.
Also please note that between Monday – 14 September and Saturday – 19 September the Lakes will be closed as Contractors are removing weed from both waters.
