Oxford Welsh Male Voice Choir

We had the pleasure of hearing the Oxford Welsh Male Voice Choir singing in the church last December. In this difficult time the Choir has recorded a video singing ‘Yfory’ which means ‘Tomorrow’. Please click here and enjoy the performance.

Milton Road Update

The Parish Council has made an application to Cherwell District Council for minor changes in the lay-out and orientation of the new community hall. This will allow a phased approach to the delivery of the new facility which may be necessary in the light of reduced funding from grant providers due to the Covid19 crisis.  Click here for more information.

Adderbury’s Great New Recipe Book

FOSMA (Friends of St Mary’s Adderbury) have launched a superb new recipe book, Friends Family and Fabulous Feasts, which is now available in Adderbury Stores. We asked villagers to let us have their favourite recipes which had kept them sane and entertained through this interesting year. The result is a lovely book packed full of good ideas for all sorts of occasions, from breakfast to dinner with everything in between. There are 180 recipes from Adderbury and further afield – many of them long-time family favourites – and Katka Holliday’s photography has transformed them into something very special.
