On Friday,13 May the Cine Club will be holding a Meals & Reels evening, which will include supper followed by the film 45 Years (2015, dir. Andrew Haigh, starring Charlotte Rampling, Tom Courtenay, Certificate 15). A married couple preparing to celebrate their wedding anniversary receive shattering news that promises to forever change the course of their lives. To take us back to the era of 1970, supper will be based on a contemporaneous recipe, Chicken a la King (with a vegetarian alternative). As usual the evening will take place at the Institute. The doors will open at 7.00 p.m. ready for the meal at 7.15 p.m. and the film presentation at 8.00 p.m. Tickets (film & food) are £6 for full members, £10 for casual members and £12 for non-members. There will also be a bar selling wine, beer, soft and hot drinks. For tickets contact Helena Scott by email at or phone 01295 810708.

Anyone is welcome to drop in as they please. On 10 June we will screen The Lady in the Van (2015, dir. Nicholas Hytner, writer Alan Bennett, starring Maggie Smith, Alex Jennings, Jim Broadbent, certificate 12A). A man forms an unexpected bond with a transient woman living in her van that's parked in his driveway. We will then be having a break over the summer and our new season starts on 16 September with a Meals & Reels evening and the film Bridge of Spies (2015, dir. Steven Spielberg, starring Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance – in an Oscar winning performance, certificate 12A). In the cold war, a lawyer is recruited by the CIA to defend a soviet spy and be involved in an intense negotiation mission to release and exchange a CIA U-2 spy-plane pilot, Francis G. Powers.

At our meeting on 2 April was Chris Brown, who collects plants of merit and value from around the world. He brought along many slides of a trip to Patagonia, where he explored with other botanists, including an old friend, Christopher Brickell, whose name is on the front of RHS Encyclopaedia of Plants and Flowers. This trip to the southern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula proved to be an endurance test for four weeks, with extreme winds and temperatures, changing from hour to hour. Very rugged terrain, stunning scenery, and interesting flora and fauna made it very worthwhile. What appeared to look like gorse bushes, but with red flowers, was Embothrium coccineum. They came across a pale coral one also. Hearing about the very rare yellow variety, there is only one plant, from some returning mountaineers, they walked for twelve miles and came across it by accident. They were delighted. Tumbling over rocks for thousands (yes, no kidding) of miles were creamy coloured petunias. These are a semi-woody shrub species. There are a lot of wild horses around which are also bred to use on farms. Cowboys are busy with the cattle and sheep. Lamb is always on the menu, though not as tender as our local lamb. The grasses the sheep graze on are tough and some razor sharp which is the preferred food of the Guanaco (Lama guanicoe) a camelid that stands between 1.0 and 1.2 m (3 ft 3 in and 3 ft 11 in) at the shoulder and weighs about 90 kg (200 lb). The colour varies very little ranging from a light brown to dark cinnamon and shading to white underneath. Guanacos have grey faces and small, straight ears. Young guanacos are called chulengos. The Bolax plant forms large green foam cushions piled up like clouds, but on close inspection are made of tiny rosettes of foliage. Another unusual shape, so pretty, is a Viola Coronifera; its habit is more like a succulent than viola. Looks like a fancy pastry ring. Fuchsias which always appear so delicate, are deceiving. Here we do grow hardy ones as well as many tender varieties, but in the freezing windswept fields F. Magellanica are thriving. I’ve never managed to keep Oxalis plants for long, the slugs like them too much. Patagonia has forty or so different species, slides of a new vivid blue and another beautifully veined white and blue variety. The fauna was varied and we were shown pictures of Puma, Rhea, Grey Fox and Guanacos. Also a Condor with its wingspan of 13 feet (3.8m) perched on the arm of a man, which it dwarfed. Chris asked his father to bring along a most unusual plant which he had propagated from the seeds which Chris had brought back. The flowers are tiny coloured red/yellow and look like fishes. It is called Tropaeolum tricolorum. continued on page 15 13 13

ADDERBURY HISTORY ASSOCIATION MARCH MEETING 2016 This month’s meeting was a slight departure from our usual talk. Although it still featured names, dates and places the emphasis was on animals long gone. Paul Austin Sargent, a member of the Oxford Geology Group, came to tell us about The Dinosaurs of Oxfordshire (not the Association’s members but genuine fossils!). Once that joke was out of the way his presentation was divided into five areas explaining how the county was home to some important palaeontology finds. It was accompanied by cartoon like and animated illustrations including strange little Kevin whose ambition in life was to become a fossil! We were given the definition of dinosaur (a terrestrial reptile). The fossilisation process was explained along with the intricacies of Deep (geological) Time measured in mya (million years ago). English geology was outlined to show how and why Oxfordshire was good hunting ground. And then came the dinosaurs. Paul described each one with additional information about the people responsible for their discovery – all eminent men in the field of geology. At the end he invited questions and answered them. We learned lots of long names and saw some fascinating giants of many, many years ago. The light hearted style turned what could have been a ‘dry as a bone ‘ topic into an entertaining presentation. For those interested there are many examples of dinosaurs in the Oxford Museum of Natural History. Jean Davis —————————————————————— continued from page 13 Chris finished with vividly coloured pictures showing beautiful sunsets and cloud formations. These pictures were worth the trip in themselves. Our Chairman, David White, thanked Chris for his talk and for answering our questions to warm applause from the audience. Our next meeting on 3 May is our AGM after which there will be wine and nibbles and a chance to exchange hints and tips on gardening problems. Then on Saturday 21 May our Plant and Cake Sale at Church House 10-12noon. Donations of plants, cakes, bread, biscuits will be gratefully received Barbara Talbot

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 on 15 March in Adderbury Institute the North Oxfordshire Deputy District Commissioner, Ian Broome, presented BEN HAYNES (15) with his award in front of the Troop’s other members and Ben’s family. Ben, who is a pupil at Warriner School, will now attend a prestigious county presentation in Oxford in May. Deputy District Commissioner Ian Broome said, “It takes a lot of hard work and effort through a series of diverse challenges to achieve the Chief Scout’s Gold Award. Alongside his school work, sports and other activities Ben has displayed great commitment and self-motivation in Scouting to achieve this top award”. Scout Leader Andy Green said, “Completing the Chief Scout’s Gold Award is a major achievement and will help Ben stand out from the crowd when applying for a job or university place. At 1st Adderbury we are all very proud of him.” To pass the award Ben completed a series of badges and took on various leadership roles, completed community work at Adderbury Lakes and an expedition, learned various life skills, attended numerous camps and attempted adventurous activities including caving, gorge walking, kayaking and motor sports. Andy Green

————————————————————ADDERBURY EVERGREENS During March we had two very successful meetings. The first a visit from local author Brenda Kirkham who entertained us with a reading of her lovely real life like poems. She also had some books on sale the profits going to the hospice. We thanked her for a very enjoyable entertaining afternoon. For our second meeting members were taken back to what we at one time found enjoyable television films "One Foot in the Grave". On 13 April was another musical afternoon by what they call themselves as the Impromptu Group. On 27 April we had our annual general meeting where we welcomed visitors and new members.

FOSMA FOSMA continues to raise funds for St Mary's church and our April event was a very successful and enjoyable evening with Sir Tony Baldry which raised over £550 - fantastic ! Many thanks especially to Sir Tony for giving up his evening to be with us and to all of you who supported the event. Our calendar of events continues on 11 May in Church House with our annual Poetry Evening which was instigated a few years ago by Margaret Williams. It is a very informal and enjoyable evening when we ask you to bring a poem or two (not too long!) to read out. With Her Majesty the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations in mind you might consider royalty or birthdays as your theme. Tickets are available from Trish Fennell on 811059 or or Val Scarff on 810386. Tickets are £7 each and there will be a bar. Other dates for your diaries are 24 June: an evening with Dr Michael Courtenay who was one of the first to enter Belsen after its liberation. 10 July: Jazz in the Garden returns to the beautiful garden of The Old Mill House by kind permission of Karen and Tim Bestwick. Listening to the music of Dickie White and friends. An event not to be missed! More details will be available shortly. Meanwhile thank you very much for your continued support. It is very much appreciated. If you would like to become a member of FOSMA or need more details please contact our Membership Secretary Nick Fennell on 811059 or Trish Fennell


On Friday 8 April Sir Tony Baldry talked about "Parish Churches - blessings not burdens". Sir Tony was uniquely placed to give this talk as he is chairman of the Church Buildings Council which is responsible for the maintenance and care of the 16,000 Church of England churches in England. The talk started with an amusing and informative summary of the history of Adderbury Church, including famous and infamous vicars of Adderbury. Sir Tony then moved on to the challenge of maintaining church buildings when costs are rising and in some areas congregations are falling. A difficult balance to achieve and he stressed the importance of Friends of Churches (such as FOSMA) in this work. In summary and during the Q&A session Sir Tony shared with us some of this thoughts on the major challenges facing the church over the next 20 years. In addition he entertained us all with some amusing stories about negotiating with the Chancellor of the Exchequer for funds to repair church roofs. The evening raised £550. Many thanks to all those who attended. Neil Staples 31 31

“FROGTASTIC” – A LEAP YEAR TO REMEMBER!!! Parents and friends of the Scouts packed the Institute to witness frogs and jockeys compete in six race heats, the winners of which took part in the Frog Derby where Chris Duffy triumphed on his bull frog “Irish Mist”. All the action was conducted under strict Jockey Club rules and all races were subject to the usual RSPCF probity checks. Unfortunately this didn’t stop some guests attempting to locate their Price Charming on the evening while others thought they were flying or even flipping the frogs. The evening was a croaking success with #adderburyfrogs trending on social media the following day. I am delighted to report that there were no long term injuries and that after some negotiations the Parish Council along with the Lakes Committee have approved a planning application for a frog retirement home on the bottom lake. Please look out for dates when we will be looking for volunteers to help us construct said dwelling. We were very fortunate to have seven very generous sponsors who really didn’t fully appreciated what they were getting involved in. So a massive thanks must go to: The Friday Club; David Wilson Homes; Jimmy Young and the Bicester Office Park; Finders Keepers; Edd Frost and Daughters; Hook Norton Brewery and Nickleby Design and Management Ltd. You were all responsible for helping us raise £962.85 on the night for the Scout Troop. Thank you. ——————————————————————

We began our April meeting with much disappointment for our guest speaker, Irene Tyack, could not be with us for family reasons. Into the vacuum of her absence, Caroline, our new joint Vice-President, provided a lively quiz conundrum on birds’ names, giving members a highly enjoyable break from business matters. In March a few members attended Oxford Federation Annual Meeting in Oxford and a party have also just attended North Cherwell Group Meeting in Deddington, both events providing much welcome networking with members from other WI groups. Our Book Group will discuss The Children’s Act by Ian McEwan and our Needlecraft Group meeting will focus its attention on woollen Twiddlemuffs for dementia patients. An evening walk around Horley is to be organised and we are presently busy with summer events at which the WI will be involved – celebrations for HM The Queen’s 90th birthday, Christopher Rawlins School and St. Mary’s Church Fete and Party in the Park. We have an Upton House presentation to look forward to at our June meeting. Our Committee next meet on Wednesday 20 April and Team WI have been waking up our GWS wild flower garden at Katharine House Hospice. Our 5 May meeting will host discussions for NFWI Resolutions 2016 and we meet at Church House at 7.30 pm because of local elections in Adderbury making The Institute unavailable for our meeting. 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 – – or by email – or find us on Facebook via their search engine for Adderbury & District WI to see our page. Margaret Halstead ——————————————————————

ROYAL BRITISH LEGION, ADDERBURY AND MILTON BRANCH It is with sadness that we have to announce the death of our long serving Chairman Mr. Charles Swain. Charles was Chairman of our Branch for the last 55 years. He died peacefully on 17 February. The funeral took place on 1 March at Adderbury church. The Church was full to over flowing with family, friends and many business associates and organisations such as Rotary and Masons. Our group was well represented with all active members taking part. The Standard was presented and the Last Post sounded by our regular buglers. Our President, Wing Commander Nigel Randall (Retd.) gave the Ode. Charles was a member of 617 Squadron (the Dam Busters) during his RAF service and the last hymn of the service 'God is our Strength and Refuge' was sung to the Dam Busters Theme! A wonderful rendition. He will be greatly missed. Jean Moore 35 35

District Councillor Nigel Randall reported that CDC had recently won two awards – Entrepreneurial Council of the Year and Housing Council of the Year. PLAY EQUIPMENT PROJECT: Sue Jelfs gave an update of her research into new play equipment. Suggestions included an outdoor table tennis table and zip wire and she was keen to include items that might be ‘challenging’ for children. She also had some ideas for the play area at The Rise. Councillors were encouraged to go and visit some local play areas eg Hook Norton, to see some examples of the suggestions made. PLANNING: No observations had been made in respect of: Mrs Theresa Goss – various works in accordance with the Tree Survey in Manor Road, Horn Hill Road, Lucy Plackett Playing Field and Amenity Land at Rawlins Close.

The Clerk would contact other residents in the area to see what their views were on the matter. A request had been received from the Public Footpath Officer asking if the PC would be willing to contribute to the cost of improving the access on a public right of way in West Adderbury. After some discussion it was agreed to clarify the possible cost required. MEMBERS ALLOWANCES: It was agreed to defer this item until after the new PC had been elected. PC COUNCIL GRANTS: The same applied to this item. AGENDA MANAGEMENT AND GRANTS: It was agreed that the Agenda content needed to be made clear to the public and that in future the official Minutes of PC meetings would only record the decisions made, rather than include the content of any discussions that took place. NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN: As the Chair of the SNP Steering Group, Sam Brown, could not be present this evening, Chairman Diane Bratt read out the statement that had been published in April Contact. 38 38

TRANSFER OF LAND: The Chairman reported that the transfer of land to the PC of the ransom strip on Aynho Road and the land on Milton Road was ongoing with no problems.

MILTON ROAD/HORN HILL ROAD FEASIBILITY STUDY: Possible options included junction narrowing or modification, or the possible insertion of ‘pinch points’ and/or associated humps or cushions along Horn Hill Road/ Cross Hill Road/New Road/Water Lane. It was agreed that more clarification was needed on costs, together with further surveys and possible funding from 106 Monies. Any decisions on street lighting would be deferred until after the forthcoming PC elections. NEXT MEETINGS: Next PC meeting is 12 May.

The guidelines are also intended to help applicants decide whether to pursue a grant application in the first place and to ensure that the criteria for awarding grants are clearly understood by both applicants and councillors alike. Grants for 2016 will be agreed at the Parish Council meeting on 28 June 2016 and applications will need to be received by Friday 17 June 2016. For further details and an application form, please contact the Parish Council web site Alternatively ring Theresa Goss on 01295 710965 or email at

PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY Last month’s meeting opened with the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Society, where Chairman Richard Broadbent reviewed the Society’s activities over the past year, noting that these continued to cater for a broad range of members’ interests, photographic skills and experience. The activities included monthly presentations from both outside speakers and members on a variety of topics, photo-shoots to places of interest, support of a number of village activities in both Adderbury and Deddington, including two annual exhibitions at these villages, and also a permanent display at the West Bar surgery in Banbury. In addition, monthly Workshops continue to be held, which are designed specifically to improve the knowledge of less experienced photographers. Overall it had been a most successful year for the Society, during which it continued to attract a total of 50 members. Reports then followed from the Treasurer and Programme Secretary that showed a satisfactory financial position, while noting that members’ desire for more outside speakers would introduce additional speaker costs. The AGM drew to a close with reviews of future Workshop activities and the Society’s web site, and concluded with the re-election of the Society’s officers. The meeting continued after the AGM with a presentation of members’ photographic ideas on the topic of ‘What is it?’ This comprised 50 projected images with members being invited to guess what each image represented. The result was some extra-ordinary photographs, viewed with puzzlement and a great deal of humour, of which a significant proportion could not be identified without further explanation by the originator. The meeting then concluded with members’ inputs to the monthly photographic topic which, on this occasion, was ‘Feet.’ Future meetings of the Society are on 4 May, when Janine Timms, a local Banbury professional photographer, will present ’Portrait, studio and wedding photography,’ and 1 June when member Randall Miles ARPS AFIAP will give a second presentation on his various photographic experiences. Then on 18 May, member Martyn Pearse leads a Workshop on ‘Table top photography,’ and an outdoor photo-shoot is planned for 15 June. All meetings are at 7.30 pm in the Cartwright Hotel, Aynho and are open to everyone. Just come along, you can be assured of a warm welcome. John Branton,

Inspirational speakers

Two inspirational individuals have been sharing their experiences with pupils at Sibford School. Nurse Anne Watts (pictured) has worked in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones and visited Sibford to speak to senior school pupils about her experiences. Sophie Hills, age 14, said: “Anne was very engaging and inspiring. It was great that she was able to share her personal story.” Meanwhile, former professional golfer John Hoskison, visited Sibford to speak to Sixth Form students about ‘Risks and Consequences’. John enjoyed a successful career before he shattered his idyllic life by accepting a drink before driving. On his journey home he hit and killed a cyclist and was sentenced to three years in prison. Hannah Wildwood, 18, said: “John was extraordinary. He told us how grateful he was to the widow of his victim. She forgave him and made him feel he had a right to be in the community again. John has since tried to make up for what happened by speaking out about the dangers of taking unnecessary risks.”
