Adderbury Farmers’ Market – Where’s it gone?

Like most markets we have had to stop trading during lockdown. Unlike most markets we are confined to indoors at the Institute, which is locked, barred and bolted.  From August we asked stallholders about a possible outdoor market but the response was 50/50 and not sufficient to have to jump all the hurdles necessary to set it up for just two hours – and risk the weather!

Deepa and Dave Unsung Hero Award

Our MP Victoria Prentis has given her Unsung Heroes Award to Deepa and Dave Bansal from Adderbury Stores in recognition of all they’ve done for the community during lockdown. Victoria said: ‘Thanks for all you have done for the residents of Adderbury by continuing to provide food and supplies during this incredibly difficult time’
One resident told us: ‘they certainly deserve this recognition – they have completely revitalised our village shop, organised deliveries and gone out of their way to help everyone during the crisis. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they see their job as being to provide service to the community – which they definitely do and always with a smile!’
