Request for support for the maintenance of the Adderbury Village Green

The Adderbury Village Green is undoubtedly one of the main focal points of our village. The Green is one of the major attractions of the village, one of which we can be proud and is enjoyed by many villagers who pass by on their travels.
You may or may not be aware that The Green is owned and maintained by a Trust known as the Adderbury Green Association with the cost of grass cutting shared with the Parish Council. Funds have run very low and the costs of the Adderbury Green Association include annual insurance, the cost of keeping the trees safe with necessary trimming and pruning, and the half share of regular grass cutting. Tree maintenance is required in 2018 and is likely to cost in excess of £1,500.
The Trustees are asking if all houses directly facing The Green could contribute £35 a year towards this cost, with other village households who appreciate the Green contributing £25 or whatever you are able to give. All contributions, for whatever amount, will be gratefully received. We will also be asking local businesses around The Green for a contribution. We will request funds in March/April each year and we hope that good support from all will enable us to keep the requested contribution at this modest level.
We will be publishing this letter in Adderbury Contact and on the village website as we welcome support from all villagers who appreciate The Green and who are able to contribute.
Donations can be made by cheque payable to “Adderbury Green Association” or in cash, and we kindly ask that these donations are put through the letterbox of Martin Boden, the Treasurer, at South House, The Green, Adderbury, Banbury OX17 3NE (near the Institute). Payments can also be made by bank transfer to Adderbury Green Association, sort code 20-03-84 and account number 20105120. Please use your name and the first line of your address as a reference.
Thank you, in anticipation of your support, which will help to maintain our lovely Village Green.

Martin Boden, Ken Wright, David Miller – Trustees
