‘The Duke’ – 14 October

Adderbury Cine Club will be showing ‘The Duke’ in the Institute. Doors open at 7.30 pm and the film starts at 8.00 pm.  Starring Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren, ‘The Duke’ tells how in 1961 a 60-year-old taxi driver steals Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. He sends ransom notes saying that he will return the painting if the government invests more in care for the elderly.

Wine Tasting with ‘Slurp’ – 21 October

Join us for a Wine Tasting and Quiz fund raiser evening at 7.00 pm in The Institute as we taste and talk our way through a selection of stunning wines from around the world. There will be a wine trade professional on hand to lead the discussion and answer questions, as your team competes in a ‘pub quiz’ style trivia competition. There will be a bar, raffle and an opportunity to purchase wines on the evening, with proceeds going towards the Adderbury’s new Community and  Sports Centre. Don’t delay – tickets at £15 per person, including light refreshments, from adderburypc@hotmail.com.

Adderbury Gardening Club Report

Many people helped so my thanks to the following: – Andy, Anne, Barbara, Clive, David, Malcolm, Pat, and Sue for their efforts and enthusiasm. Thanks  to Carole Miller, Malcolm Moody and Sheila Nicholls,  for giving their time to judge the exhibits and their continued support.   To the exhibitors for “having a go” and to the many villagers and friends who came to view their efforts.   Hopefully some of you may exhibit next year.
The Judges commented that despite the extremes of weather this year the standard on offer was very high.   This year we had 18 adult entries producing 122 exhibits, a slight increase on last year.    Disappointingly there were no entries from our allotmenteers,  we do need more villagers to enter.  There were some first time exhibitors in the main classes this year and some won, two were under twelve years old.
