If you’re interested in taking part, then please contact Phil Rippon:811601 or philrippon69@gmail.com  by Monday, 15 November.

Adderbury Stores Still Needs You!

In the last 18 months, Deepa, Dave and Terry at Adderbury Stores have provided the most amazing service to the village, recognised by their Unsung Hero award. Commuting every day from Northampton they have worked tirelessly to provide their many customers with their everyday needs and more – all with a lovely smile and their ‘nothing too much trouble’ attitude.  Now with things returning to normal, schools back, back to work, back to Sainsbury’s (?) where are all those customers which were so well serviced.  Surely the people of Adderbury should be returning the favour and continuing to do at least some of their shopping in our village shop? We have the best shop we have had for years, but Deepa’s message is clear – USE IT OR LOSE IT!

Knitting Group Re-opens

It is with much excitement and relief that we are once again able to open for our knitting group. We will meet in the Methodist Schoolroom on the first and third Monday of the month  from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm. Should it be that you were able to do some knitting during ‘lock-down’, please bring your items along, and we will see if they can be forwarded to the charity for distribution before the end of the year. We have been gifted some wool, so we will soon be up and running again. Look forward to seeing you.
