Local Resident – Harriet Dickens

Over the last six months, local resident and pupil of Warriner School, Harriet Dickens, has spent 24 hours litter picking in the village as part of her Duke of Edinburgh, Silver Award.  Harriet has also supported the Parish Council’s ‘Paint Means Poo’ campaign by spraying dog mess left on the ground to highlight just how bad the problem is in Adderbury. The Parish Council was very happy to support Harriet with the volunteering element of her Award and it is inspiring that a young person wanted to look after and take pride in the village in which she lives.

Vandalism in Adderbury

Sometime between 1800 on 11 July and 0830 on 12 July someone threw a piece of rock through the front window of Cobb Cottage, 5 Mill Lane Adderbury. It looks as if it was vandalism rather than an attempted burglary. This is totally unacceptable in our lovely village.
The Police are investigating. If anyone has any ideas on who may have done this or knows anything about it, please report it to the Police. Surely we all have a vested interest in stopping this type of thing. Ray Robinson
