Adderbury Farmers’ Market

What no market? We are targeting July for a return – even if it’s outside – but who knows?!
Please find below an update on what some of our lovely stallholders have been up to throughout the pandemic…..
Smörgås Tårta are taking orders online and are offering a home delivery service- https://www.facebook.com/swedishsandwichcake/.
Buzzy Beans – operating as normal but with a drive through service – pop in and have a coffee with Paddy in the lay-by if you are on the way to shopping in Deddington –  Free coffee to all NHS staff – thanks Paddy!

Walking through the Church Yard

It is so nice to see that the church yard is still kept looking so tidy during this lockdown. I have been walking through there regularly and there is always someone doing part of the grass. This weekend it had a really good cut and it looks fantastic. So thank you to all you mowers it is greatly appreciated.
Sadly there is always another side to this. Dog owners still do not pick up their dog mess in the churchyard when there is a dog bin near the Lych Gate to put it in and it would be even better if they did not mess in the church yard. Someone even tied a poo bag on the foot rail at the back of the church. Can you believe it!

Katharine House Hospice

Facilities extended for coronavirus.  We have greatly expanded our 10 bedded in-patient unit to a maximum total of 26 beds to support the national coronavirus response and need in our community, and from Thursday 16 April the Katharine House Response Centre is now fully operational.
Our Chief Executive, Angharad Orchard, said: “The coronavirus pandemic is an unparalleled health emergency which requires an unprecedented response. As a local provider of specialist care, Katharine House Hospice is well-placed to quickly support the NHS by providing staffing and our facilities during this crisis.

Pillar Box

This delightful stone, painted beautifully with the rainbow, has been thoughtfully put on the pillar box a few days ago. A nice gesture to our postman and all post users.
