Royal British Legion

Once again Poppy selling time is nearly upon us and I would like to appeal to anyone who might be interested, to contact me if you would be happy to take collections door to door for the annual poppy appeal. We especially need collectors for the new estates on Milton Road and other areas of the village. Adderbury folk are very generous but we sometimes miss parts of the village due to a lack of collectors. If you can help this year please get in touch with me and I will pass your name to our local Poppy Collection. Organiser. Many thanks. Jean Moore Secretary. Adderbury and Milton Royal British Legion. 01295 810246 or jeaniemoore3@gmail.com.

Valuation Day – 10 October

Simon Davies of JS Auctions will be in in Church House between 10.00 am and 4.00  pm, so get delving into your cupboards, attics and under the stairs and bring along your treasures.  You never know – you might just be sitting on a fortune!  Whether or not that’s the case come along anyway and enjoy a coffee or glass of wine and have a go at Guessing the Value of an item that Simon will bring along.  More details will follow but in the meantime you can contact Trish Fennell on 811059 to find out a bit more. This is a FOSMA event.

FOCAL Fundraising Events

FOCAL Car Boot Sales
Our Secretary Peter Britton  is running a car boot stall. He has attended three car boot sales to date and he has raised £300. He hopes to attend one or two more sales and he has some private items to sell as well.
Litter Pick Service
On his actual walking around the village, Peter Britton has introduced a litter pick service. Approximately two or three times each week he will take a litter bag with him on his walk and pick up anything he sees on the verges. If you would like to donate please visit www.walkingforfocal.co.uk.

‘Adderbury Wheels’

Now the nights are drawing in we meet at 6.00 pm on a Wednesday evening. Bring your lights if you have any. We will be moving our start time back even earlier as the light goes but should be OK for a while now  The last Wednesday evening will be 24 October.   We still meet at 9.30 am every Saturday morning, and we always meet outside the library.

Milton Road Sports and Community Centre Progress

The Parish Council is pleased to confirm that its planning application for Change of Use from Agriculture to Sport and Recreation was approved by Cherwell’s planning committee on 23 August. The decision was unanimous from the Councillors.
There are some conditions but this approval will enable the Parish Council, working with WFAC, to move the project forward, with the aim of providing Adderbury residents with a first class village facility.
