HIGH SHERIFF OF OXFORDSHIRE AWARD GOES TO VAL SCARFF On the recommendation of our Parish Council, one of the 2016/7 High Sheriff of Oxfordshire Awards for contributions to community life in Oxfordshire has been awarded to Val Scarff. Val has lived in Adderbury for over 50 years, and soon after arriving in the village she became involved with the village pre-school playgroup and became Chairman of the Banbury Branch of the Pre-School Playgroup Association. In the ensuing years she continued to be very involved in the community. In 1977 she was a founding member of Adderbury Theatre Workshop which continues to thrive today. She is an accomplished pianist and has been the musical director for countless pantomimes and cabarets. She is also organist in St. Mary’s Church and is much valued by the church community. For the past 11 years Val has organised the Annual Village Garden Party raising considerable funds for the church over this time. She was a School Governor for Christopher Rawlins School where she also worked for 25 years. To raise money for the local library she put on talent shows with talent from the village, both children and adults, which were a great success. In the 1980s Val started the “Children Singing for Children” project. This idea spread across primary schools in Oxfordshire, culminating in a concert at The Albert Hall with schools from all over the country. All this from a lady who loves her village and is motivated by wanting to see others happy and see children attain their full potential. Val was a member of Adderbury Parish Council and served as Chairman in the 1990s. She has been involved in various Royal Jubilee celebrations and suggested Adderbury have a big village party to celebrate the millennium of the founding of the village in 1995 a great success. Needless to say, she was involved five years later when we celebrated the millennium in 2000. In 2010 Val set up FOSMA (Friends of St. Mary’s Adderbury), a charity run by volunteers to raise funds to help maintain the fabric of the church. It arranges events throughout the year, concerts, jazz in the garden, poetry evenings, talks, etc.; fun events enjoyed by churchgoers and nonchurchgoers alike. Val, despite her recent health problems, has not stopped her efforts. Last year she decided that Adderbury should celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday in June so got together a small committee of willing volunteers to organise it. The result was a wonderful day when the High Street was closed to traffic, with street parties for children and the old folk, a fancy dress parade, and so on. The whole village was involved, and a good time was had by all. Without Val’s efforts we could have missed that. Having done so much for our village over many years, Val is very deserving of this award. Congratulations Val!

Our February meeting was originally listed as a talk about ferns. Some changes were made, and I am sorry for the confusion. Heather bought along examples of ferns, begonias, hederas, and pelargoniums, but most of the talk was about pelargoniums. Fibrex Nurseries Ltd. is a Their National Collection status was made official family run business in in 1987 and has over 2,500 species. They will have a special 30th birthday display at Chelsea and the Honeybourne Road, Pebworth near Malvern Spring Show. They also hold the National Stratford on Avon. Collection of Hederas (ivy), 360 species, and ferns, Heather Goddard-King, who of which 114 are named in their catalogue, and also a married into the family eight years large collection of Tuberous Named Begonias. ago, came along to talk about the Quoting from their catalogue “The botanical name collections of plants they grow. of the plants featured in this section is Pelargonium. We do not use the name Geranium at all, although they are often incorrectly referred to as this. The name Geranium rightfully belongs to a group of hardy herbaceous plants native to GB, Northern Europe and North America”. At Kew they have eight collections of these “cranesbills” which include 400 species. Heather brought a wonderful collection of flowers from each of the four main groups, Zonal, Regal, Ivy-leaved, and Scented-leaved. These half-hardy shrubs were first collected in South Africa so must be protected from frost. A cool greenhouse, conservatory, a spare room, if you have the space, or a window sill are suitable. Cuttings can be taken; some will keep blooming through our winters if kept indoors. The scented-leaved varieties are used to flavour cakes, ice cream, drinks, and sorbets. The volatile chemicals in them create lemon, orange, rose, mint, and pine tastes and aromas. The flowers have a starry, pretty, dainty appearance. The Regal pelargonium is most colourful with all shades, feathering of petals and frilly ones like the pink and white “Birthday Girl.” A purple-black with red edges is named after “Lord Bute” whose family have kept it going for many years. A newer cultivar is “Monty’s Magic;” its upper petals are deep feathered wine/cerise, and the lower ones are a soft lilac deepening towards the edge. “Yale” is a deep crimson Ivy-leaved pelargonium, and another mauve pink is “Le France,” still the most reliable plant in all hanging baskets and containers. Have you tried it planted straight into the border as a filling or edging plant? It becomes the most amazing flower cover ever. The newest Zonartic pelargonium, which has taken 31 years to develop, will be officially released at Chelsea. It is the yellowist yet to appear and it is called “Rushmoor Amazon.” After a wonderful presentation and answering our questions, a vote of thanks from our Chairman was warmly applauded. Barbara Talbot Notes for your diary: 4 April - Chris Day will talk about “The A to Z of Foolproof Gardening” 25 April - visit, by member’s cars, to Aston Pottery Garden to see the tulips - 2.00 pm, from Church House 2 May - AGM followed by wine and nibbles - £12 membership due at AGM 20 May - Plant and Cake Sale - Church House 10.00 - 12 noon.

ADDERBURY HISTORY ASSOCIATION FEBRUARY MEETING 2017 The February meeting saw our secretary Phil Mansell pressed into action with the non-arrival of our speaker. Phil brought forward his April talk on “Three Men of Adderbury� and, without notes and only a power point presentation, entertained a large audience. His first prominent man was William Cole, born in Adderbury in1626, the son of the master at the village Grammar School. He left Adderbury for New College Oxford in 1642, and at the time of his graduating in 1650 he was a notable figure in botanical studies. After Oxford, he lived at Putney where he became the most famous herbalist of his time. Later he became secretary to Bishop Duppa, the Bishop of Winchester, and died in 1662. Eminent man number two was Charles Harris, born 1791. He and his family moved to Adderbury for his work. He was a violin maker living in the cottage next to the Bell. The violins that he made, and those which have survived to the present day, are described as of a very high quality sound. They also keep their note in changing temperatures and degrees of humidity. Phil treated us to the sound of a Harris violin with a video clip. It appears Charles Harris was an excellent musical instrument maker but was poor at managing his finances. He later became Lord of the Manor at Steeple Aston and built himself a new manor house, but this put him into debt. A scheme to sell the house and clear his debts still left him penniless. The third eminent person was C F Beeson who was born in Oxford in 1889. At school his best friend was T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia). Beeson graduated in geology at Oxford in 1910 and then switched to forestry. From 1911 until 1941 Cyril worked for the Imperial Forest Service, and in 1913 he was appointed Forest Zoologist for India. In the late 1940s he and his wife moved to West View in Adderbury West. Here he started to collect antique clocks, many of which originated from the surrounding area, and in 1953 he became a founder member of the Antiquarian Horological Society. Beeson was a well published author. His first book was on The Ecology and Control of the Forest Insects of India and the Neighbouring Countries. Later he wrote many articles on clocks culminating in a book called Clockmaking in Oxfordshire 1400-1850 for which he is best known locally. In the early 1970s his expanding clock collection was given to the Museum of Science in Oxford. He died in 1975. Phil entertained us with the problems these people encountered and their achievements in widely different backgrounds and all without the help of his notes. Barry Davis

EVERGREENS Many happy memories was the theme for the meeting on 8 February when members had a lovely time each bringing many interesting photographs and telling tales of bygone days. On 22 February it was decided by members that Rhoda be made an honorary President of the club in recognition of all the work she had done since starting the club 38 years ago. Dot Hardy stepped down as chairman, was presented with an orchid, and thanked for her work. A representative from the new care home in Twyford came and gave a talk about the new home. The next meeting on 12 April will be a talk about Dr Barnyards and an Easter Bonnet competition, and on the 26th a quiz and bring and buy. Rhoda Woodward

ADDERBURY HISTORY ASSOCIATION GOES BACK TO SCHOOL Five members of AHA visited Christopher Rawlins Primary School on 9 February and spent 20-30 minutes in each of the Key Stage 2 classes, sharing their knowledge and memories of our school’s history. The children responded very positively, and the AHA members really enjoyed it too! Responses from Year 4 children: “So much better than reading things in books or letters! You don’t even know if that’s real … but if you’re talking to the person you know it’s real!” “There were separate schools - one for girls and one for boys.” “You can have more fun with people! They used to have pigs … they would grow them from piglets until they were big and fat, and then they’d eat them!” “It was fun …. Yeah it was really fun!” “There was a boy called Peter, and he had to take a horse to get new shoes, and then he was allowed to ride it back.” Responses from Year 5 children: “Our lady told us a really funny story!” “Our lady told us that they had a little wooden desk for two people, and it had a hatch that lifts up … where they kept all their stuff.” “I almost cried … almost!” (listening to the visitor talking about hosting evacuees during the war.) “That was really cool and really fun! That was probably one of the best history days ever!” Response from a very animated Year 3 pupil, who came rushing over to tell me: “I’ve just found out I used to live opposite Ken who was the headteacher … and if I asked my grandparents they would remember him!” Paula Kinch, Christopher Rawlins School Adderbury History Association is very grateful to the former pupils who came on the visit. They were Jean Moore, Ann Neal, Christine Shafe, and Audrey Smith. I was able to contribute some reminiscences from Rev Peter Dance (“a boy called Peter”), who could not come in person. The children had prepared some very good questions and were most interested in the answers. Some they found hard to believe (“Why didn't girls play football?” “Did you say an outside toilet??”), but conversation was animated in all the groups. We look forward to further contact with the school, and I would be very pleased to hear from other former pupils. If you would be willing to talk to the children on future occasions, or simply share their memories, do get in touch. Fiona Gow, Adderbury History Association (810903)

ARC CELEBRATES THE TENTH THREE SPIRES CHALLENGE On Sunday 9 July Adderbury Running Club (ARC) hosts the tenth annual running event in Adderbury - the Three Spires Challenge. What is the challenge you may ask? Run or walk a half marathon; run 10K if you are 15 or older; run 5K if you are 11 or older; take part in one of our Junior Runs if you’re 4 to 10; or *new this year* we have a Junior Half Marathon Challenge for those aged 7 to 14 on the day. The Junior Half Marathon Challenge gives you the chance to complete a half marathon by running a mile or so per week (depending on your age: please see our website for details) before Sunday 9 July and then joining us on the day to run the final mile or 5K! To enter and to find out more details (including a checklist that you can download for the Junior HM Challenge), please visit www.AdderburyRunningClub.co.uk. If you have never run before, ARC can help you prepare for your first 5K run. If you have run before but need to get fit again, there is still time to get fit enough to complete a 10K run. To remove all excuses for adults so that you can rise to the challenge, ARC will offer free membership for the period 1 April to 9 July 2017. You’ll find that ARC members are a friendly group of runners, and you’ll get to explore the local footpaths and countryside. If you really cannot run but would like to help as a marshal, please contact ARC Race Director Matthew: matburnell79@hotmail.co.uk. Tony Gill & Jo Edwards, Adderbury Running Club

INSTITUTE COMMITTEE AGM Adderbury Institute continued to be a much used and valued community resource during 2016 with an increase in bookings over the previous two years. The flexibility of our on-line booking and payment system has made booking the Institute very easy, and users can now also control the heating themselves during their bookings. The Committee has faced a number of challenges during the year though, including a health and safety issue with our acoustic sound panels, for which the installer refused to do anything, and trading standards were about as useful as a chocolate teapot! Needless to say, the Institute Committee, therefore, had to bear this cost which put off other planned projects, such as the reinstallation of the hearing loop. The Institute AGM for 2017 will be held on Wednesday 26 April at 7.30 pm. Light refreshments will be provided. During the meeting, last year’s accounts will be considered, and a discussion will take place as to whether it is possible to maintain hire rates at the current levels in the face of increasing external costs. All villagers and users are invited to attend to have their say. We are also looking for volunteers to join our small committee which only meets around four times a year. Andy Green, Chairman, Adderbury Parish Institute

ADDERBURY SCOUT RECEIVES TOP AWARD A Scout at the 1st Adderbury Troop has achieved the top award possible for his age group. The Chief Scout’s Gold Award is the culmination of a young person’s four years as a Scout and shows true commitment and determination through a series of difficult challenges and tests. At the Troop’s meeting 14 March, in Adderbury Institute the North Oxfordshire District Explorer Scout Leader Janet Duxbury presented Ryan Moller (15) with his award in front of the Troop’s other members and Ryan’s parents. Ryan is a pupil at Warriner School. Janet Duxbury said, “Ryan is a great example to his peer group of what can be accomplished with commitment. It was a pleasure to present his Chief Scout’s Gold Award. This is something for him to be extremely proud of in the future”. Scout Leader Andy Green said, “Completing the Chief Scout’s Gold Award is a major achievement and will help Ryan stand out from the crowd when applying for a job or university place. We have seen all Ryan’s hard work working towards this award with true determination to succeed.” To pass the award Ryan completed a series of badges and took on various leadership roles, completed community work at Adderbury Lakes, undertook a village litter pick, went on an expedition in Snowdonia, learned various life skills, attended numerous camps, and attempted adventurous activities including canoeing, motor sports, and tobogganing.

ADDERBURY DEDDINGTON AND DISTRICT PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY The club meeting on 1 March was treated to a most fascinating talk by Robert Harvey titled “By The Sea”, accompanied by a display of what can only be described as “brilliant” photographs. Robert started by explaining his early childhood attraction to the seashore which in later life led to him becoming a Coastal Scientist. Great Britain has a coastline of 11,073 miles, but this depends upon which map scale was used; the larger the map scale, the more inlets and bays are recorded! His series of pictures of coastal features were beautifully composed and ranged from Sussex to Isle of Skye, and Lundy Isle to Norfolk. When visiting a coastal area or feature Robert planned well ahead, using tide tables and a “sun rose” (i.e., a chart showing sunrise and sunset at different times of the year). Cliff features at dawn and sunset were stunning and drew comments of admiration from his audience. Very clearly his successful photo trips were down to meticulously planning to coincide with the tidal situation, the sun positions, and lighting level on the date in question. The day of the year is important in using the angle of the sun to highlight certain features of places such as Lulworth Cove, Beachy Head, or Dunvegan Castle. The pictures of the Cornish coast, especially the cliff edge engine houses of derelict tin mines, were stunning in their clarity and composition. There was superb use of foreground, colour, and tone to create pictures we would all be proud to have taken. The second half of his talk covered man made features such as sea defences, military buildings, and lighthouses. Creative use of angle of view and light produced good shots of breakwater and old wooden groyne installations standing at odd angles, (needless to say, with the tide level in the correct position). More sombre and thoughtful were the derelict military buildings near Orford Ness, provoking darker thoughts of their purpose. Robert’s concluding pictures were stunningly dramatic shots of storms along the South Coast and the Gower Peninsular in the winter of 2013-14. Huge storm lashed waves engulfing the sea walls, and lighthouses almost overwhelmed by gigantic waves were especially dramatic. The membership showed their appreciation of his interesting, excellently illustrated talk with a loud round of applause. Answering questions he revealed that he always used a tripod. Always used AE and 100 ISO exposure setting, and often used N.Grad filters to slow the motion of waves and produce atmospheric mood shots. Paul Brewerton, Adderbury Deddington and District Photographic Society

ADDERBURY THEATRE WORKSHOP PANTOMIME

JACK AND THE BRUSSEL STALK - ADDERBURY INSTITUTE JANUARY 26-28, 2017 Why JACK AND THE BRUSSEL STALK? - the splendidly inventive audio-visual intro from such luminaries as David Attenborough asked the same question as the audience. But when the cast includes Ivana Letoneoff, Ophelia Bottom, Princess Pitt, and Anita Bath, you probably know what’s coming - and for the best part of three hours we were entertained by Gary Leonardi’s lavatorial script (don’t worry mum, the kids won’t understand it (?)). A bit of variety would have helped - surely there are only so many laughs you can get out of passing wind and bottom-feeling. Having got over that - a joyous chorus of some 25 players promised us “The greatest night of our lives” before launching into the traditional plot with twists, spiritedly unravelled by narrator Elaine Bryant. Gary Leonardi’s dame this year, outrageous as ever, is Jack’s widowed mother Ophelia. He is living with his own mother, the inimitable Wendy Gardner making the most of some thin material in a dodgy East European Yorkshire accent (the ad libs were the funniest!). Then his son Jack, a great effort by the effervescent Becky Cheesman which kept the whole show moving, and Jack’s childhood sweetheart Anita Bath, who now cleans drains and is less than desirable - a lovely wistful performance from Alison Heath. Bizarrely the grotesque poverty-stricken widow is being lusted after by her iniquitous landlord Von Da Bra (get it?) who is prepared to forsake overdue rents in return for marriage. Melanie Cox was the night’s stand-out performance here - oozing evil and stirring up hate from the audience, and she was accompanied by her hapless henchmen (excellent idiots in Charlie Cox and Henry Taylor). The night was given a great lift with the appearance of 11-year old James Heath as a squirrel bemoaning, with very adult irony, that this was his third year in this role, and he wanted to be a baddie. Job done, he continued to delight the audience with his deadpan delivery. So to pay the rent, the cow (Pat - a great creation) has to be sold, wicked landlord kidnaps it to get his evil way, fairy godmother (lovely touch by Ashley Dwyer) saves the day with five magic beans - but next morning they produce a great Brussel stalk (more smells). Up climbs Jack into the Giant’s castle to join a strange EastEnders harpist (Su Hayter) and a hardworking Linda Leslie padding it out as the nutty Scot housekeeper Angus McCoatup. Jack returns to earth with gold and hen, etc, etc, etc, and finally we hear the Giant coming down the stalk - but not to worry he’s only a midget Giant (a well-cast James Taylor). He falls for Ophelia, prince finds his princess, Anita Bath cleans herself up and marries Jack, Von Da Bra becomes kind, and good triumphs over evil for yet another ATW year. The vibrant final chorus from Friends epitomised this great team performance, with the younger players being given more time to show their talents, not least a very “Yah” Hannah Marles as the prince. Director Jamie Cox - who can’t resist his unscheduled cameo, this time resplendent as a onesied Robbie Williams - thanked the cast and the unsung backroom team. The sets were simple and effective, especially the stalk, and as ever Gill Osborne’s costumes were fabulous - we loved the cow! We now look forward to the autumn cabaret to celebrate 40 years of this wonderful Adderbury institution - long may it last!

WI We enjoyed a very good members meeting and AGM in March, and WI Adviser Beryl Mann joined us to supervise the election of our next president. We were delighted that Diane Danton was elected President again, on a show of hands, for 2017-18. Also voted in were several standing committee members, then three new members, who we heartily welcomed. Regretfully, we lost two long-standing committee members whose presence will be sadly missed. Our Treasurer, Chris Shafe, presented the financial report, Bernice Mansell presented our activities annual report, and Diane Danton presented her address, giving thanks for committee support and welcoming new members. After refreshments of wine, soft drinks, and nibbles, and our raffle draw, Pat Smith demonstrated how to make spring cake decorations, providing materials for members to create their own designs. In April, we meet on Thursday, the sixth, when the subject of Julia Freeman’s talk will be “My Life as a Wimbledon Umpire.” New members are always welcome at The Institute on the first Thursday of each month at 7.30 pm when they are assured of an enthusiastic reception. Further details are to be found on our website - www.adderburywi.co.uk - or by email adderburywi@gmail.com or find us on Facebook via their search engine for Adderbury & District WI to see our page.
