Have you been caught up in the recent excitement of the Commonwealth Games on The Gold Coast? The England netball team, the Roses, were victorious and took the gold medal home after nailbiting semis and a breathtaking final against Australia who have been unbeaten for what seems like forever!! The Roses have been fighting for the top position in recent years but have never gained it until now. Many people have been newly excited by netball as a spectator sport and in recent years England netball has launched a nationwide back to netball scheme that has been hugely successful in boosting local team numbers and encouraging ladies and girls to play for fun and fitness.
The Parish Council would like to hear the views of Adderbury residents on their proposal for a new footpath around the edge of Colin Butler Green. The suggestion is that pedestrians from the Horn Hill Road direction could walk from the existing footpath across the first entrance to Manor Road and then follow the curve around the Colin Butler Green on the new footpath. They could then cross the second entrance to Manor Road, opposite the entrance to Cross Hill House.
Should you have any comments, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the Clerk to the Parish Council, Theresa Goss, on 01295 710965.
Adderbury Library is a fantastic village facility but is only kept open, for its current hours, by the fund raising activities of “FOCAL” its Friends support group. FOCAL ( Friends of Adderbury Library ) are looking for new committee members who have an interest in supporting this community asset.
The sound of church bells ringing on Sundays and for special occasions is part of English life. We have eight lovely bells in the Adderbury church but to keep them ringing we need some new ringers to join the existing band.
It has been brought to the attention of Adderbury Parish Council that dog fouling is an issue around the village generally and specifically in The Rise. Therefore, the Parish Council would kindly remind dog owners to clean up after their pets and use the bins provided for the health and safety of the community.
If the problem persists the Parish Council will have to engage the services of the Dog Warden, which may result in fines for irresponsible dog owners.
