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 6lb 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 this he gave a share of his turnover to Katharine House Hospice – the total is fast approaching £3.000.  His efforts are 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.
Trevor took over the Pickled Ploughman just over 12 months ago and has transformed the pub despite all the trauma of Covid. His mantra is ‘a pub on the edge of the village but the heart of the community’. He has certainly provided great ‘village support’ with sponsorship of Adderbury Park 2 XI, Christopher Rawlins gardening project, and many others.
