We Need Your Help!

Are you recently retired, have time on your hands and looking for an interesting and worthwhile hobby? Have you recently moved to Adderbury and would like to be aware of what is going on in the village?  We are looking for any member of the village community who is computer literate to join the team editing adderbury.org.  It’s just a few hours a month on a rota basis. If you would like more information on this interesting and fun exercise, please contact either Nick Fennell on 07850017393 – nick.fennell319@btinternet.com, or Joyce Cox on 07747017082 – JoyceAdderbury@gmail.com.

Knitting Group

The knitting group meets in the Methodist Hall on the first and third Monday of the month between 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm. This is a very informal group who knit squares for blankets or other much needed items, for refugees. We also enjoy a chat and a cup of tea. If you would prefer not to knit, but would rather sew squares together, that too would be very welcome. We are always grateful for double knitting wool, of any colour other than white, and size 8 needles.  Drop in and see what we do and just sit and have a cup of tea with us!

Rhyme Time

 A FOCAL Fun and Educational Experience for your Child.
Aimed at children from birth to 4 years old, we sing and act out Nursery Rhymes so mums, dads, grandparents, carers and their children can play and learn together in a stimulating environment with others of the same age. Following the singing, there is time to have a drink and chat together. We run every Thursday morning from 10:00 am to 11:00 am in term time only. Rhyme Time is run solely by volunteers on behalf of Focal.
We ask for a voluntary payment per session of £2 for an adult and child plus £1 for each additional child to cover overheads
We run special sessions throughout the year, including a Christmas party rhyme time and an Easter Bunny session.
We always welcome more volunteers either to run sessions or help set up or make tea and coffee. Please contact one of our joint organisers:
Chris Peacock on peacockabcchris@aol.com or 01295 811032 or Jan Robinson on j.robinson45@btinternet.com
or 01295 816990. No need to book, just come and enjoy
