FOCAL 100 Club

Welcome to the Focal 100 Club!  It is a great way to support your local library while having a bit of a flutter!  Here’s how it works.
You agree to pay £2.00 per month or £24.00 per anum. This buys you one membership number which is entered in the monthly draw. (of course you can always buy more membership numbers if you wish!) All participants must be over 16 years of age.  The draw will take place on the last day of the month.
The prize money will be 25% of the membership fees received in that month.  The remaining 75% goes to Focal to help keep our library open. The winner each month will be sent a cheque for their winnings.
Membership forms can be obtained from the Library or downloaded from our website – Adderburyfocal.org.uk.

Naming of Roads on New Developments in Adderbury

The Parish Council has recently extended its list of names for roads on new developments in the village, following a request from Mr Nick Allen. The four additional names are listed below with a very informative description from Mr Allen on the background to each one. The Parish Council  thanks Mr Allen for his suggestions and his support.

The four additional names and their history ….

Home Library Service

libraryThe Home Library Service is available to people who are unable to visit the library themselves through frailty, short term illness, infirmity or a disability and have no other means of getting access to reading materials.
How it works
Contact us to discuss the kind of books, DVDs, audio books that you like to read or enjoy. We then arrange for a library volunteer to deliver these to you in your home.
To register for this service or for further information call the Home Library Service on 01865 810259 or Catherine Drake Adderbury Library Manager on 01295 810545 or email: homelibraryservice@oxfordshire.gov.uk.

Rhyme Time

 A FOCAL Fun and Educational Experience for your Child.
Aimed at children from birth to 4 years old, we sing and act out Nursery Rhymes so mums, dads, grandparents, carers and their children can play and learn together in a stimulating environment with others of the same age. Following the singing, there is time to have a drink and chat together. We run every Thursday morning from 10:00 am to 11:00 am in term time only. Rhyme Time is run solely by volunteers on behalf of Focal.
We ask for a voluntary payment per session of £2 for an adult and child plus £1 for each additional child to cover overheads
We run special sessions throughout the year, including a Christmas party rhyme time and an Easter Bunny session.
We always welcome more volunteers either to run sessions or help set up or make tea and coffee. Please contact one of our joint organisers:
Chris Peacock on peacockabcchris@aol.com or 01295 811032 or Jan Robinson on j.robinson45@btinternet.com
or 01295 816990. No need to book, just come and enjoy
