FOCAL are looking for New Committee Members

Adderbury Library is a fantastic village facility but is only kept open, for its current hours, by the fund raising activities of “FOCAL” its Friends support group. FOCAL ( Friends of Adderbury Library ) are looking for new committee members who have an interest in supporting this community asset.

St Mary’s Church Bellringers

The sound of church bells ringing on Sundays and for special occasions is part of English life. We have eight lovely bells in the Adderbury church but to keep them ringing we need some new ringers to join the existing band.

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.

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.
