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.

Lucy Plackett Activity Centre Open!

The Centre is now open to groups that are permitted to meet, in line with the latest Government guidelines. We look forward to welcoming back our regular groups, but do have availability for any new ones.  Our hire charges are just £6 per hour.  If you would like to book the Centre please contact Kerry Davison on 0788 1697470 or message via our Facebook page @Lucyplackettcentre.

FOCAL 100 Club

Welcome to the Focal 100 Club!  It is a great way to support your local library while having a bit of a flutter!  Here’s how it works.
You agree to pay £2.00 per month or £24.00 per anum. This buys you one membership number which is entered in the monthly draw. (of course you can always buy more membership numbers if you wish!) All participants must be over 16 years of age.  The draw will take place on the last day of the month.
The prize money will be 25% of the membership fees received in that month.  The remaining 75% goes to Focal to help keep our library open. The winner each month will be sent a cheque for their winnings.
Membership forms can be obtained from the Library or downloaded from our website – Adderburyfocal.org.uk.
