ADDERBURY COMMUNITY FOOD MARKET
Thursday 9 June, 6.00 – 8.00 pm at the Institute, The Green, Adderbury www.market.adderbury.org www.facebook.com/adderburyfoodmarket ANOTHER RECORD CROWD! Adderbury‟s very own not-for-profit food market is really motoring on the second Thursday of each month, with a record crowd last month enjoying our great range of fresh food to buy (check out the fabulous new cheese and fudge stalls!) and a delicious meal to eat in or take away - and live music from 6.30 pm. To date over £1800 has been given to village good causes, the latest a £300 donation to Party in the Park to sponsor their vital first aid station. Have you visited the market yet? Put the date in your diary now!
ADDERBURY HISTORY ASSOCIATION APRIL MEETING This meeting was an evening of two parts. First we held our AGM and then Association Secretary Phil Mansell donned his speaker‟s hat to give a presentation entitled „Facing the Music.‟ The business was dealt with swiftly and we enjoyed coffee and cakes, courtesy of Jill and Joy, before settling down to hear what Phil had prepared. By way of introduction he said “I want to introduce you to a forgotten tradition of church singing that held sway in most country churches between about 1769 and 1860. Adderbury was an important centre for such music.” The presentation was divided into three sections: information about this particular kind of music, sources from which to find out about it and Adderbury‟s contribution. Phil then took us through several hundred years, from Puritan zeal in banning organ th playing and singing in church to the revival of music and song in the 18 century, from th village choirs in the 19 century to the West Gallery style groups of the 1900s and today. West Gallery is the clue to the title of the talk. Galleries were erected across the west end of the nave, including one at Adderbury 1830-1860s, and the congregation turned to face the musicians and choir. Choirs performed fuguing tunes (where the parts repeat each other and overlap), based on psalms, anthems, canticles, hymns, carols and celebrations and sounding very similar to folk music. Three people in Adderbury played roles in keeping alive these traditions. They were Thomas Hayward, choirmaster and composer and William „Binx‟ Walton who sang in the choirs as a boy in the 1840s. Janet Blunt recorded the songs and music as described to her at a later date by Walton and others. This was certainly a talk with a difference. The „soundtrack‟ took precedence over the pictures while we listened to examples of what Phil was referring to. All credit to him in that he spoke for an hour with one arm in a sling and the hitches with the switches as he operated everything one handed could readily be forgiven. Phil certainly communicated his enthusiasm for his subject to us and we were both informed and entertained. Find out more from A.H.A. Publications, Michael Pickering‟s book (“Village Song and Culture”), Janet Blunts‟ manuscripts on line and Thomas Hardy‟s “Under the Greenwood Tree”. Or ask Phil for details of documented records.

Well, we are now finally in the month of June, and the village is buzzing with all the different events that are happening in this glorious month. Fingers crossed the sun will be shining for everyone. The Party in the Park committee would like to take this opportunity to explain a little bit about how we finance our event. Yes! That's right "FINANCE," amazingly enough this event does not happen for free! In previous years we have been fortunate to have enough donations on the day to fund Party in the Park for the following year, but sadly those days are gone and we struggle each year to raise enough money to put the event on year-on-year! The committee work tirelessly all year applying for grants, looking for sponsors and holding various fundraisers. All the committee, volunteers, and bands donate their time for FREE, but sadly our overheads have steadily been increasing. Here's a rough breakdown of our costs this year: Security Sound equipment and Crew Toilets Generator & Site Services Van Hire Lighting equipment and Crew
Insurance for the event First Aid Lighting Tower Radios/Communication team Hire of Fire Extinguishers
£1,750 £ 800 £ 700 £ 500 £ 450 £ 400
£ £ £ £ £
350 300 150 100 75
This year we have very kindly been given a donation from Adderbury Christmas Market for £300 & Adderbury Theatre Workshop for £300, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for your support. We would also like to say a huge thank you to TVR who are sponsoring our van hire this year, and to Adderbury Community Market, who have very kindly given us £300 to sponsor our First Aid at this year's event. The Community Market does a fantastic job, not only by helping local traders, but also by donating any excess funds back into the Community. Our final thank you is to Smiths of Bloxham who are kindly donating the skips and stage, Mr Haynes for donating the Hay bales, and Banbury Litho for printing our posters. These 3 companies help us every year and we are so grateful for everything that you do. Without the help of all the above organisations, and those of you who have supported our fundraising events throughout the year, 2016 would be an even harder struggle, and on behalf of the Party in the Park Committee we would like to thank you all. If you, or your company, would like to help in anyway please get in touch. We are still looking for sponsors, raffle prizes, and volunteers. Our contact details are below. Party in the Park is one of Adderbury's largest and arguably most popular community events, enjoyed by families and villagers of all ages and hopefully here we have been able to give you some idea of the costs of our event and how much work is involved in organising and trying to raise money to fund it every year. Saturday 18 June will be a great day, and we are all looking forward to it, so come along and join in the fun with us, and please do give what you can to our buckets on the day! Thank you for reading this. Linda Leslie, 01295 810211, The Party in the Park Committee www.adderburypartyinthepark.co.uk www.facebook.com/adderburypartyinthepark

SINGING FOR THE SOMME One hundred years ago this year, one of the bloodiest battles known to human history had just begun. Near 1,000,000 men were wounded or killed in the Battle of the Somme which continued from 1 July until 18 November, 1916. As these heroes packed up their troubles and marched on to fight for their King and Country, songs and music became a way to boost their morale, articulate their losses and celebrate their successes. These songs and these poems remain with us today and on the centenary of the Somme we will recall them together in music and dance to remember those men and women who fought for us in the Great War. On 8 July we invite you to step back with us to 1916 to watch, participate, and enjoy an evening of the music that united so many through one of the darkest chapters of human history. Listen to the rousing house brass band, the love letters of the Tommy, and the infamous writers from the era whilst canapés are provided and locally brewed Hook Norton ale is served. One hundred years ago these songs were used to help those in troubled times, and today we wish to continue to do the same by donating all proceeds to The Royal British Legion and to the Katharine House Hospice. Led by Royal Academy of Music‟s Joseph Cummings, a chorus of local actors and musicians will be performing for your entertainment, yet the evening will need as much audience participation as possible. Fancy dress is encouraged! Tickets will be priced at £10, including canapés and nibbles. The event will be held in Adderbury‟s Village Institute, doors opening from 7.00 pm and starting at 7.30 pm. There will be a bar with locally brewed Hook Norton ale available. All proceeds will go to the charities. Tickets will be available from www.singingforthesomme.wordpress.com and The Bell Inn Adderbury. You can also contact email@example.com or call 075324 46665 to book tickets. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter at @singforthesomme for more information and all updates. Florence Taylor

FOCAL now has to raise £9,000 each year to make up for cuts in the library staffing budget. (60% of all staff costs) Adderbury has over 2,500 residents but less than 100 are enrolled as Friends of the Library. You can become a Friend of FOCAL for just £20 per annum.

TOP AWARD FOR ANOTHER ADDERBURY SCOUT Members of the 1st Adderbury Scout Troop are celebrating after another of the Troop‟s members achieved the coveted Chief Scouts Gold Award - the highest award possible for a Scout. HARVEY RYE (15) received his award at the Troop‟s meeting 26 April in Adderbury Institute. The presentation was made by the former Assistant County Commissioner and st 1 Deddington Group Scout Leader, Janet Duxbury, watched by the Troop‟s other members and Harvey‟s family. Harvey, who is a pupil at Warriner School, was scheduled to attend the prestigious county awards presentation day in Oxford on 7 May. 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. Janet Duxbury said, “It is fantastic to see a young person become so involved in his village activities outside of Scouting to gain his Gold Chief Scout‟s Award. Harvey will have the advantage of being able to add these achievements to his CV”. Scout Leader Andy Green added, “Harvey worked very hard to achieve this award. Today there are so many calls on a young person‟s time it takes true grit, determination and loyalty to succeed and pass all the requirements of the Chief Scouts Gold Award. At st 1 Adderbury we are all very proud of him.” Harvey completed various projects as part of his Chief Scouts Gold Award including research work into the sporting habits of Adderbury‟s teenagers. This helped provide the evidence for the Adderbury Neighbourhood Plan team of the need for enhanced sport facilities in the village. Harvey also volunteered to help with environmental projects at Adderbury Lakes and worked with the after-school club at Christopher Rawlins Primary School. In addition Harvey took on various leadership roles, learned various life skills, performed in several stage sketches, attended numerous camps and attempted adventurous activities including canoeing, caving, white water rafting and quad biking.

A lovely afternoon of entertainment occurred on 13 April when we were visited by an excellent concert party who call themselves "The Impropter." A wonderful afternoon very much enjoyed. The A.G.M. was held on 27 April. The committee was elected en-bloc with one new member. Dot agreed to carry on as chairman, Rhoda as secretary, and Pat as treasurer. After last year‟s minutes were read and signed concern was discussed as to the decrease in members some through illness and worse and the future of the club. We were able to welcome two new members and hope things will improve. After 36 years it would be nice to be able to keep going. After the business was complete a surprise visitor, John Webb, rounded off the afternoon with an interesting talk on the N.H.S. and how it affected people in this area. With thanks to him for calling in to enlighten us on a subject that applies to us all. Rhoda Woodward

THE BELL SCOOPS PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS
Chris and I had a great day at the Hooky Awards at Towcester Racecourse on Monday 9 May with a VIP dinner followed by the awards ceremony and an evening of horse racing. We are absolutely thrilled to have won the following three awards: BEER QUALITY AND CELLAR MANAGEMENT PUB OF THE YEAR COMMUNITY PUB OF THE YEAR And overall HOOK NORTON BREWERY PUB OF THE YEAR. As winners of the last award we presented the prizes to the owner, trainer, and jockey winner of the first race and were treated to champagne in the owner‟s hospitality box. After less than two years in the pub trade we are delighted. The team at The Bell have put in a lot of work, but we also thank Adderbury and all our customers for supporting us and traditional pub culture. We really feel that The Bell is the heart of the village again. Sandra Shallis, The Bell
At last month‟s meeting, Jeannine Timms gave a presentation on Portrait, Studio and Wedding Photography. A keen amateur photographer, Jeannine turned professional three and a half years ago, and since that time, has developed a local business specialising primarily in portrait and studio work. While undertaking some wedding photography for friends, she finds this type of work can sometimes be difficult commercially, due to the nature of the occasion and the number of people involved. Her preference is, therefore, to act as a „second shooter‟ at weddings whenever possible, using natural light for the photographs rather than flash. However, Jeannine‟s main business derives from portrait work, particularly of children, taken informally in the home environment. Again, she avoids flash for this purpose and typically works at speeds of around 1/60 second at 100 ASA using a Canon Mk 5D camera, with a Canon 500D as back-up. Portraits often involve a degree of post-production work to remove lighting irregularities, skin blemishes, tattoos, etc., and for this work Jeannine uses Lightroom and Photoshop for software processing. For more formal portraiture, however, Jeannine prefers to hire a studio as she lacks this facility currently - although it does form part of her future plans. Jeannine is very interested in commercial studio photography and promotes her work in various trade magazines. For this purpose, she uses the studio electronic flash equipment and either hires a recognised model, or forms a relationship with an aspiring model who similarly wishes to promote herself. Overall, a most interesting and refreshingly honest account of the transition from being an amateur to a professional photographer, accompanied by a wealth of photographs and details of lessons learnt along the way, that was much appreciated by Jeannine‟s audience. The next meetings of the Society are on 1 June when member Randall Miles ARPS AFIAP will give a second presentation on his photographic experiences entitled „Tales of future excursions to the wilds,‟ followed on 6 July by professional photographer Dan Evans who returns to present „Lens lore - using the lens for best creative effect.‟ Both meetings will be held at 7.30 pm in the Cartwright Hotel, Aynho. In addition, two Outdoor Workshops are planned for 15 June and 20 July, details of which will appear on the Society‟s web site. Everyone is welcome to attend the Society‟s meetings and activities, so do please come along and meet us all. John Branton, www.addphoto.co.uk 30

ADDERBURY CRICKET NEEDS YOU! Fancy a game? - phone Richard Lambden now on 810567. Well you never know, one day we might get our cricket field back, but in the meantime we will have to make do with the 22nd staging of the annual match against the boys from Milton. This year the big match will be on Sunday 3 July at Warriner School at 2.00 pm, when we will be defending our hold on the Millennium Trophy, inaugurated as part of the village celebrations in 1995. Adderbury only recently regained the trophy, and this year we think we can do the business again. But only if we can turn out a really passionate team of Adderburians with the odd tinge of talent – we‟ve got the backbone of a side, but we need to flush out three or four more stalwarts, young or old, good or bad - but up for the crack and a few beers. The Adderbury Barmy Army is always the best part of our performance – we look forward to seeing all our supporters again this year – the teas are well worth the trip! Nick Fennell
WI Adderbury & District WI meeting took place at Church House as The Institute was busy with local council election activity. We had a good evening for our 2016 Resolutions discussions with voting on the two subjects going forward to the NFWI Annual Meeting in Brighton in June. Our guest speaker was Maggie Rampley from Wardington House Nursing Home, who spoke of her working experiences as Matron of Wardington House and their care of its residents, touching on Alzheimer‟s disease which is one of the mental illnesses under the umbrella term Dementia, for which there is no known cure. Currently, there are 850,000 people in the UK living with dementia. Our Book Group meet to discuss Victoria Hislop‟s book The Return, and a members‟ walk to Horton and Horley will take place later in the month. Our Grow Wild Seed flower garden at Katharine House Hospice is alive with perennial sowings from last year, and extra sowings have taken place in areas laid to waste by the activities of burrowing rabbits. We have a friendly robin keeping us company while we garden. We are also gardening and sowing wild plants and seeds at Adderbury Lakes which is very exciting. We meet on 2 June at 7.30 pm at The Institute with guest speaker Victor Ince on Upton House. New members are always welcome at The Institute on the first Thursday of each month at 7.30 pm where they are assured of an enthusiastic reception. Further details may be found on our website – www.adderburywi.co.uk – or by email – firstname.lastname@example.org, or find us on Facebook via their search engine for Adderbury & District WI to see our page.

HERBERT MCDOWIE (19 APR 1915 - 29 MAR 2016)
Fond memories of Uncle Herbert. He was the third son of Florence and William, who worked on the farm for Mr Goffe. Herbert was a pupil at the boy‟s school in Adderbury; the headmaster was Mr Walker. He played football with the school team on the Green, opposite the school. At the back of the school the boys did the garden as part of their lessons. The family moved to Bedford in 1935 owing to foot and mouth on the farm. For the silver jubilee of King George and Queen Mary 1935 he was on parade along the route to Westminster. The Second World War he joined the Royal Air force to be with his brother William. Herbert was sent overseas where he was cook for the service men. He went to many different places abroad, and after the war he came back to England. After leaving the Air Force he got a job as school caretaker which he said “was jolly hard work.” He came with his daughter, stayed at the Red Lion, and visited his nieces, his old school, and where his sister once worked, which he enjoyed as well as meeting some residents of the village. He was always very fond of Adderbury. He reached the wonderful age of a hundred receiving congratulations from Her Majesty the Queen, Royal Air Force, and the W orks and Pension. The family enjoyed a tea party with his sister and friends. Sadly he passed away peacefully at Elcombe House, De Parys Avenue, Bedford on 29 March, 2016. Rest in peace Uncle Herby. Anne Williams (niece)
