I’m sad and very disappointed to report that the gate of the new beehive enclosure in the churchyard has seemingly been stolen. Not vandalised but systematically and carefully unscrewed and removed. The bee enclosure was paid for by generous donors and will now cost FOSMA (Friends of St Mary’s Adderbury) approximately £140 to replace – money that we put a lot of time and effort into raising. Perhaps the smart Alec who removed it would be kind enough to return it. If by any chance you are offered a wooden picket style gate approximately 4 x 2.5 ft it may be ours. Anyone with any information can contact Trish Fennell on 01295 811059.
