Parish Council Surgeries

Adderbury Parish Council has taken the decision to discontinue the Parish Council surgeries. These have been running on a monthly basis for a number of years, but at most surgeries, no members of the community attend. Therefore, should residents wish to contact the Parish Council, they should do so using the contact details on the Parish Council web site.

How often do you use Adderbury Stores?

Deepa, Dave and Terry at Adderbury Stores continue to provide the most amazing service to the village. Commuting every day from Northampton they work tirelessly to provide their many customers with their everyday needs and more – all with a lovely smile and their ‘nothing too much trouble’ attitude. At a time when their costs are spiralling surely the people of Adderbury should continue to do at least some of their shopping in our village shop – and not just for newspapers? We have the best shop we have had for years, but Deepa’s message is clear – USE IT OR LOSE IT!

Remembrance Poppies

The Parish Council would like to thank Debby Dickinson for suggesting and organising the lovely display of poppies around the village. Every Poppy is in memory of a soldier from this Parish named on the War Memorial (which is inside St Mary’s Church) and each has some information about the named soldier. Many of the names of these soldiers are those of families who still live in the village or local area. There are over 60 of the poppies and they are spread all round the village.

Adderbury Guides

At the end of last term, we were delighted to be able to present our first Guide Gold award to Rebecca McLoone. This award is presented to a Guide who has completed all six of the Theme awards in Guides, and has completed a personal challenge. We celebrated her achievement with cake and balloons, and a slide show of her Guiding life – from her beginning as a Rainbow.
