Gate Stolen

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. 

Roads in the Village

Adderbury Parish Council has submitted an application to the County Council for roads in the village to be considered for 20mph speed restrictions. If residents would like to share their views on this proposal, the Parish Council would be pleased to hear from you.

New Sports and Community Centre

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

After a lull due to Covid-19, the project has now gathered 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!!
Sign up on “easyfundraising.org.uk “ and every time you buy online a free donation will go to the “ Working for Adderbury Community Fund”.

Village Coffee

Village Coffee is back on Fridays 10.00 am to 12 noon. Please come and join us in the library for coffee, cakes and a chat. Everyone welcome!

Adderbury Brownies needs Volunteers and Helpers

We are hoping to recruit new volunteers and helpers for the Adderbury Brownie Unit. We would love to hear from anyone who can offer some time in any way possible to help run our Brownie unit – whether that’s as a leader, an occasional helper or administration support. It’s a really fun way to help the community and keeps the lovely traditions of Girl Guiding alive. Young people who are looking for volunteer work and experience are welcome, people who were Girl Guides themselves many, many moons ago and just about everyone in between – no matter your experience or how much time you have to spare.  Nicky Hart AdderburyBrownies@gmail.com
