Pilates in Adderbury

Here are details of Pilates in the Lucy Plackett Activity Centre. Monday morning classes – 10.00 am to 11.00 am;  Wednesday afternoon classes – 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm; and Wednesday evening classes – 6.00 pm to 7.00 pm.  The cost is £8.00 per class and first come, first served.  These are fun and friendly adult mat Pilates classes, suitable for all abilities.

Adderbury Ukulele Group

The group have been practising all through the lockdown via Zoom. For a short while last summer, they were able to play together on the Green, keeping social distancing, but this was short lived when greater restrictions were introduced. They used the down-time to extend their library of popular songs.  Mostly from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s, such as a medley of Drifters songs, Pussycat and Engelbert Humperdinck, but also a more modern Ronan Keating song.

With the easing of restrictions, the group have returned to the Adderbury Bowls Club on Monday evenings to play outside on the patio, where they practice the songs from their repertoire.  They clearly have a good time strumming and singing and are looking forward to playing in front of audiences again.

Adderbury Running Club is Up and Running

Adderbury Running Club has kept going throughout the pandemic. During lockdown 1, we had to run individually, and it wasn’t until halfway through last year that we could start running in groups again, albeit groups of no more than six. During lockdown 3, we could exercise in pairs and every Sunday morning a small number of enthusiastic runners turned up even in the very worst of weather conditions to set off in groups of two at 10-minute intervals.

Party in the Park – Postponed

To all our wonderful supporters, bands, crew, security, concessions and volunteers we were hoping to bring you positive news about this year’s proposed event, planned for Saturday 19 June.  However, since the government announcement that restrictions on the opening of venues and events will not be lifted before 21 June, the committee greatly regrets that this year’s Party in the Park will be postponed until 2022.

Silent Soldier

I know there is good reason for the Silent Soldier to be placed at the entrance to The Crescent but I thought how lovely and fitting it looked at the entrance to the churchyard for Remembrance Sunday.  Could we do that every year?  What do you think?  Trish Fennell.
