Working For Adderbury Community: Heard it all before – this time it’s for real.

Working For Adderbury Community (WFAC) met on Wednesday night for the group’s Inaugural Annual General Meeting. At the well attended meeting the group adopted their constitution and elected trustees Andy Green (Chair), Jackie Head (Vice-Chair), Kate Gibbins (Secretary), Pam Haynes (Treasurer) and from Adderbury Parish Council Councillors Keith Mitchell, Martin Rye and Chris Shallis.

The group is now calling for other interested villagers to get involved and help create the vision.

Adderbury Stores News

Things continue to brighten up at our excellent village shop.

Bhavin has added a range of meats from the renowned Brackley Butchers to complement the regular Meat Joint products, and there’s really good news that the excellent Cornfield Bakery is now delivering 3 times a week a good choice of their breads and morning goods.

Bhavin continues to respond well to his interpersonal skills training – apart from the odd wobble, which would probably happen to us all if we were in the shop 85 hours a week!

He’s doing a great job – use him or lose him.

Whatever happened to the Adderbury Neighbourhood Plan?

Good question – Following six weeks’ consultation with villagers and other stakeholders earlier this year, the revised plan was approved by the Parish Council in May and duly submitted to Cherwell District Council.
As we had previously met with them and sought their advice on a number of occasions, we believed that their role in vetting the Plan for legalities and any further issues would be just a formality, before they passed it out for another six weeks’ consultation as expected.

Dog Fouling in Adderbury

It has been brought to the attention of Adderbury Parish Council that dog fouling is an issue around the village generally and specifically in The Rise. Therefore, the Parish Council would kindly remind dog owners to clean up after their pets and use the bins provided for the health and safety of the community.
If the problem persists the Parish Council will have to engage the services of the Dog Warden, which may result in fines for irresponsible dog owners.

Adderbury & Milton Royal British Legion Appeal for New Members

This is an  appeal on behalf of the Royal British Legion, Adderbury andMilton Branch.  Our branch has been in existence since 1922 so this is our 95th year.  I would like to appeal or offer an invitation, on behalf of the Branch, for more new members.  Our numbers are very low and we do not seem to be attracting any new interest.  We are currently meeting bi-monthly and we meet at the Bowls Club on a Thursday at 2.00 pm.

Can You Help Edit Adderbury Contact?

Following the sad loss of Marie Corney, we urgently need another editor to help keep Contact going. Contact has come a long way since it first appeared in January 1979 as an eight page issue. By volunteering you help ensure Contact continues to be an important part of village life informing the community and helping local businesses.
