Adderbury Cricket Heroes Romp Home in Runfest

The Hundred? India Test Match? Surely nothing as exciting as the 26th annual needle match between Adderbury and Milton – but this time the usual engineered tense finish was missing. A new-look youthful Adderbury team put Milton’s flagging attack to the sword, with village newcomer Ed Browning and weekender Chris Beaumont-Dark each scoring 101 not out in a dazzling partnership of 189, ensuring a mammoth total of 286-5 off just 35 overs. Let’s hope this signals to everyone that cricket in Adderbury and Milton can keep going. Will you be there? Call me! Nick Fennell 811059

Missing Cat

Our cat disappeared recently and we would be grateful for any information regarding his whereabouts. He is black and white and around 6 years’ old. At the time of his disappearance he was very well cared for.  However, he looked a little bit scruffy and we think that someone may have taken him in thinking that he was a stray cat. He does have a history of moving homes and it could be that a well-meaning person locally has adopted him. We would be grateful for any information and just to know that he is OK. Please contact Zoe on 07887557791.

Adderbury Gardening Club’s Annual Show

The Judges commented that despite the reduced number of exhibits this year the standard on offer was very high. There is a thriving area of allotments in the village but no “allotmenteers” exhibited. We do need more villagers to enter. There were some first-time exhibitors this year and they won six of the trophies.  Chairman, David White welcomed everyone to the Show and said a few words of thanks and encouraged all attending to exhibit next year.  He then thanked the “Show Team” for their efforts and spoke of the work done by Rod Roberts.  Click here to see the show report.  Rod introduced Deepa Bansal.  During lockdown Deepa and husband Dave did a lot for the village and Rod thanked her on behalf of the community.  She was warmly applauded and then presented the prizes.

Jazz in the Garden

The sun shone, the people came, the band played, the garden was beautiful – and we raised some funds. Perfect!  Friends of St Mary’s Adderbury’s annual Jazz in the Garden was back – but this year to the splendid garden of Court End in Manor Road Adderbury. In glorious sunshine, over 150 people enjoyed the brilliant jazz of Dickie White and Friends while numerous more kids explored the depths of the garden.  Plentiful picnics and a drop to drink put people in the mood to donate a record amount for the raffle, and FOSMA were able to raise over £1700 on the day.
