FOSMA Poetry Evening – 2 October

The ever popular FOSMA Poetry Evening returns to Church House starting at 7.00 pm.  Instigated some years ago by our friend, the late Margaret Williams, the Poetry Evening has become a popular event in our calendar and we warmly invite you to join us again this year.
Bring a poem or two (not too long please!) to read out – happy, sad, funny, whatever takes your fancy, and enjoy a glass of wine amongst friends.  Or if you would rather, just come along and listen – the choice is yours.  Tickets are £5 and available from Trish Fennell on 01295 811059 or  Wine available to purchase.  We look forward to seeing you there.

Adderbury Cricket Heroes Squeeze Home in Runfest

World Cup? Headingley Test Match? Surely nothing as exciting as the 25th annual needle match between Adderbury and Milton. Milton’s Andrew Stanley set the pace with a classic 88 runs from his cultured bat before the wily Steve Conway with 2-27 off his 7 overs stemmed the flow. Enter the gladiator Farmer Adams and his mighty weapon – not used in anger since 2014 – to smite a brilliant 87 not out off very few balls, sending spectators and dogs flying with numerous sixes, taking Milton to a mammoth 212 off 35 overs. So 426 runs off 70 overs in front of a baying crowd of dogs and partisans – who said village cricket was dying?
Let’s hope this signals to everyone that cricket in Adderbury and Milton can keep going – but we need more than just our one-match players to come forward in 2020, which is Milton’s 30th anniversary year. Are you in? Call me! – Nick Fennell 811059
