CPRE Oxfordshire Flooding and Pollution Report

A survey of Oxfordshire’s Town and Parish Councils, 2021
Findings show that at least 17% of towns and parishes in Oxfordshire experience flooding problems and at least 20% of towns and parishes experience issues with sewage/sewerage infrastructure. CPRE Oxfordshire has produced an interactive map highlighting where the issues are, view the map and download the report from our website: www.cpreoxon.org.uk

Beehives in Churchyard

You may have noticed that some areas of the churchyard are being left with longer grass to encourage more of the wildlife that lives there.
We would like to do more to encourage biodiversity and take care of nature which is under threat, so we are going to have a couple of beehives in the churchyard soon.  They won’t be near paths, will be clearly marked, and will be maintained responsibly. There will be opportunities to get involved in sponsorship and finding out more about them and FOSMA will have more information soon.

Village Coffee

Village Coffee takes place between 10.00 am and 12 noon in the Library.  Proceeds are shared equally between the Church and the Library. A good opportunity to meet up with friends.

Do you enjoy Cycling? Have you taken up Cycling during Lockdown?

Would you like to cycle in a group? Do you have a hybrid or a mountain bike, or even an E-bike? Cycling is good for your health, fitness and well-being and is a great way to explore the countryside. Did you know that we now have two informal and very friendly cycling groups in Adderbury?  The Adderbury Wheels and the Recyclists both make use of the beautiful countryside around Adderbury and try to avoid main roads.

Local Resident – Harriet Dickens

Over the last six months, local resident and pupil of Warriner School, Harriet Dickens, has spent 24 hours litter picking in the village as part of her Duke of Edinburgh, Silver Award.  Harriet has also supported the Parish Council’s ‘Paint Means Poo’ campaign by spraying dog mess left on the ground to highlight just how bad the problem is in Adderbury. The Parish Council was very happy to support Harriet with the volunteering element of her Award and it is inspiring that a young person wanted to look after and take pride in the village in which she lives.
