West End Tennis Club has a Defibrillator

Banbury West End Tennis and Squash Club have purchased an AED (Automatic Electronic Defibrillator), the first in the village, I understand. The unit is designed to save lives in the event of a heart attack. In order to gain access to the unit, anyone assisting someone in cardiac arrest should phone 999, and the location and code to access the unit will be given to them, as well as instructions on caring for the patient. Now, we fully understand that this unit is remote from many areas in the village, and would expect a village of this size to have one, or two more in various spread out locations.

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.

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.

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.
