‘The Duke’ – 14 October

Adderbury Cine Club will be showing ‘The Duke’ in the Institute. Doors open at 7.30 pm and the film starts at 8.00 pm.  Starring Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren, ‘The Duke’ tells how in 1961 a 60-year-old taxi driver steals Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. He sends ransom notes saying that he will return the painting if the government invests more in care for the elderly.

Milton Cricket Club Win Tight President’s Game

The 25th staging of the Adderbury v Milton needle match for the Millennium Cup took place at North Newington on 4 September. Milton with a strong looking batting line up aimed to set a tough target, but quickly found that the pitch was acting up with some shooters and others that spat up at the Banbury Road end. Star man Andrew Stanley finished a frustrating season by being bowled for one with the 12 fielders of Adderbury keeping it tight in the field.

Adderbury Gardening Club Report

Many people helped so my thanks to the following: – Andy, Anne, Barbara, Clive, David, Malcolm, Pat, and Sue for their efforts and enthusiasm. Thanks  to Carole Miller, Malcolm Moody and Sheila Nicholls,  for giving their time to judge the exhibits and their continued support.   To the exhibitors for “having a go” and to the many villagers and friends who came to view their efforts.   Hopefully some of you may exhibit next year.
The Judges commented that despite the extremes of weather this year the standard on offer was very high.   This year we had 18 adult entries producing 122 exhibits, a slight increase on last year.    Disappointingly there were no entries from our allotmenteers,  we do need more villagers to enter.  There were some first time exhibitors in the main classes this year and some won, two were under twelve years old.
