Adderbury Snow Wardens Meeting – 21 January

Through Adderbury Parish Council Andy Millard and Laura Walker have been tasked with forming a snow warden scheme in the village.  They are looking for volunteers to help around the village.  We all know how bad it can get in the village when we have a snow fall.  The main roads are gritted but this leaves the village streets untreated and sometimes difficult to get around.   Snow wardens are volunteers who play an active role in their community when the weather takes a turn for the worst.

Laura and Andy are holding the Snow Warden inaugural meeting at The Bell Inn 19:00, 21 January.

‘All is True’ – 7 February

Adderbury Cine Club will be showing ‘All is True’ in The Institute.  Doors open at 7.30 pm and the film starts at 8.00 pm. ‘All is True’ tells the following story – The year is 1613, and Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground. Devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family. Haunted by the death of his only son, Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationship with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as a husband and father. Starring Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen,  For tickets contact Helena Scott on 01295 810708.or

Message From Adderbury Parish Council

The Parish Council has received a number of reports that dogs are being allowed in the children’s play area in the Lucy Plackett and dog mess is being left near to the equipment. Please could users note that dogs are not permitted in the play areas at the Lucy Plackett or The Rise. Dog mess should always be picked up by owners because it can be extremely hazardous, especially to children.

This issue has been raised with the Dog Warden at Cherwell District Council so that he can use his powers to take any necessary action.
