Adderbury Speedwatch

The Parish Council is looking for new volunteers to support ‘Adderbury Speedwatch’ which involves monitoring traffic in the village using the PC’s speed camera. The data is then passed to Thames Valley Police to take the appropriate action.  If you would like to take part and help reduce speeding in the village, please contact the Clerk, Theresa Goss at for more details.

More thoughts from Adderbury Grounds Farm ….

Better the day, better the deed! I sowed the last field of wheat on Sunday, 18 October and was rewarded with the sight of a kingfisher sitting on a wooden branch protruding from the bank of the river Swere (it is surprising what you can see from the seat of a tractor cab).

Update on Parish Council’s Increasing Biodiversity Project

About a year ago the Parish Council agreed to follow up the Chairman’s initiative in creating increased biodiversity areas around the village and encouraging residents to become involved.
Following a report on this project in the Contact a number of residents contacted the Clerk and Chairman to express support and interest in being involved. As a result, areas around the village have been left unmown during this summer to encourage grass and wild flowers to grow. These include Lake Walk Green, Tanners Lane areas of grass/verge and St Mary’s Road entrance.
