‘The Duke’ – 14 October

Adderbury Cine Club presents ‘The Duke’ in the Institute, doors open at 7.30 pm for an 8.00 pm start. 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.

Katharine House Hospice

What’s coming up later this autumn and into winter? We may be more than halfway through the year, but there are still plenty of ways to get involved and events to enjoy. Your support helps us to make every moment matter for local people living with an incurable illness. We couldn’t do it without you! Below is just some of what’s coming up in the next few months.

Adderbury Guides

At the end of last term, we were delighted to be able to present our first Guide Gold award to Rebecca McLoone. This award is presented to a Guide who has completed all six of the Theme awards in Guides, and has completed a personal challenge. We celebrated her achievement with cake and balloons, and a slide show of her Guiding life – from her beginning as a Rainbow.

Adderbury Brownies

The leadership team for Adderbury Brownies has expanded, and we’re excited to start our meetings again after the summer break. To fit in with leader commitments, we’ve changed to meet on a Monday, and now meet just before Guides. We meet each Monday in term time, 5.45 pm to 7.00 pm at the Lucy Placket Activity Centre.

New Sports and Community Centre

The New Sports and Community Centre on the Milton Road Gathers Momentum.

Planning permission for the main building has been granted, the sports field is now in place, and the main entrance and footpath linking to the village have been installed. However, more funds are needed and you can help without donating a penny!!
