Milton Road Update

The Parish Council has made an application to Cherwell District Council for minor changes in the lay-out and orientation of the new community hall. This will allow a phased approach to the delivery of the new facility which may be necessary in the light of reduced funding from grant providers due to the Covid19 crisis.  Click here for more information.

Well done ‘Pickled Ploughman’

Our MP Victoria Prentis has given an Unsung Heroes in North Oxfordshire Award to Trevor Brown, landlord of the Pickled Ploughman, in recognition of his amazing efforts to keep the village supplied during lockdown. Trevor decided to use his forecourt to sell fruit and veg and so many other items which weren’t readily available elsewhere – such as 6lbs bags of flour – and business thrived. At the same time as keeping the kitchen and staff employed, he offered a great range of takeaway meals.  His Friday night fish and chips became legendary.  On top of all thig he gave a share of his turnover to Katharine House Hospice – the total is fast approaching £3.000.  His efforts being rewarded now he is back welcoming customers new and old, boosted by the ‘Eat out and Help out’ scheme, which has been a huge success.  Let’s hope the next few months continue to show such great village support to our Unsung Hero.

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!’

Dog Fouling in the Village

The Parish Council is supporting a new initiative to tackle dog fouling in the village, which involves spraying with a fluorescent paint dog mess which has not been picked up by dog owners. This will hopefully make it obvious just how bad the issue is in the village and also shame those, who do not pick up after their dogs, into doing so. If anyone in the village is concerned about dog fouling and would like to support this work, please contact the Clerk. adderburypc@hotmail.co. This has been trialled in other areas of the Country and has been very effective.
