Adderbury Cricket Heroes Squeeze Home in Runfest

World Cup? Headingley Test Match? Surely nothing as exciting as the 25th annual needle match between Adderbury and Milton. Milton’s Andrew Stanley set the pace with a classic 88 runs from his cultured bat before the wily Steve Conway with 2-27 off his 7 overs stemmed the flow. Enter the gladiator Farmer Adams and his mighty weapon – not used in anger since 2014 – to smite a brilliant 87 not out off very few balls, sending spectators and dogs flying with numerous sixes, taking Milton to a mammoth 212 off 35 overs. So 426 runs off 70 overs in front of a baying crowd of dogs and partisans – who said village cricket was dying?
Let’s hope this signals to everyone that cricket in Adderbury and Milton can keep going – but we need more than just our one-match players to come forward in 2020, which is Milton’s 30th anniversary year. Are you in? Call me! – Nick Fennell 811059

Voices Across Time are Back! – 14 September

Adderbury’s own stars Major Swing and the Bluebelles invite you to Ground Control to Major Swing. Fly into outer space and join them as they rock their very own lunar Last Night of the Proms in St Mary’s Church starting at 7.30 pm. Become a friend of Voices Across Time.
.It’s September 1969, two months after Apollo 11 became the first ever crewed mission to successfully land on the moon and lunar fever is still gripping the nation. Everywhere children, their parents and their grandparents can be heard quoting the famed ‘That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.’ Major Swing returns with his celestial ladies for a night of dancing and singing which – he promises – will be out of this world…!
