Adderbury Golf Day

A 24 – month delay – but worth the wait.  The 16th Adderbury Golf Day for Katharine House Hospice finally took place at Rye Hill Golf Club, after missing out in 2020, and then a further wait for this year’s Freedom Day. A motley selection of 64 golfers of varying age, size, ailments and skills turned out again for this very worthy local cause. Many have been playing in this tournament since it started as part of the SMART campaign in 2005.
There was a huge variance in scores from pretty awful to very impressive, and loyal supporter John Hodgkins’ team scooped the pool, with Adderbury’s own Paul Hopkins’ team runners-up. The Thunderball comp was won by Nick Fennell’s team – his first victory in living memory.

Adderbury Cricket Needs You!

Fancy a game? – contact Nick Fennell now on 811059 or nick.fennell319@btinternet.com. Well you never know, we might get our cricket field back one day, but in the meantime we will have to make do with the 26th staging of the annual needle match against the boys from Milton. This year the big match will be on Sunday 5 September at Broughton & North Newington CC at 1.00 pm, when we will be fighting to retain our hold on the Millennium Trophy, inaugurated as part of the village celebrations in 1995.

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 Friday Club is Back! – 30 July

FOR ALL THOSE WHO WORK FROM HOME – Did you know that before Covid more than 1 in 7 of us worked from home? I wonder what the number is now? With a vibrant population of over 3000 in Adderbury, there are now a lot more home workers and businesses. Friday Club offers a breath of fresh air, and an opportunity to meet others who also work from home, whether within Adderbury, or the surrounding villages. There are plenty of them at Friday Club with an amazing cross-section of jobs and skill sets – but all with similar challenges and issues to yours.
