Do you work from home? Does it sometimes drive you mad? How do you cope with the lack of mates and support around you? Fancy meeting some more homeworkers? There are plenty of them at the Adderbury Friday Club with an amazing crosssection of obs and skill sets - but all with similar challenges and issues to yours. It‟s not a formal heavy networking organization we‟re very informal and fun but many members have gained good business from our „social networking.‟ So once a month why not come and have a grump about the computer, the Revenue, English sporting disasters and compare how others make their business work from home. It‟s worked well for so many Adderbury homeworkers for 15 years now - why not for you too? Ring Nick Fennell on 01295 811059 or email nick.fennell319 for more details. And by the way it‟s free

On 21 September we gathered for our first meeting after the August break. Our speaker was Alan Thornton who gave a highly entertaining and informative presentation about Cadburys and its Bourneville origins. Alan has never worked in the factory but is on the board of the Education trust which was pioneered by George Cadbury. He began by explaining the background behind the establishment of the works and village at Bourneville. The Cadbury family were Quakers and social reformers. John Cadbury founded his cocoa and chocolate business in the 1800s th in Birmingham. Many of the workers lived in back-to-back houses and in the 19 century had a life expectancy of 40 years. John‟s son George took over the business as a young man when his father‟s health failed. As well as managing this he also taught his workers to read and write to help them on he experienced at first hand the poor living conditions when he visited them at home. Determined to improve the situation he decided to move the whole manufacturing enterprise into the countryside at a time when it was struggling commercially. In 1878 this, with some udicious purchasing of Dutch machinery and French expertise, brought about a turn around and Cadburys began to prosper again. In addition to new premises he built houses, gardens, a school, almshouses and sports facilities he also introduced a 5 day working week and medical care. A pension scheme and tolerance of trade unions all added to the community spirit. Bourneville became a prototype for modern methods of housing and town planning. After this introduction Alan showed us a film made in 1951, by which time the workforce had risen from 230 to 8,000. This outlined all the processes by which Cadbury‟s famous Roses chocolates and other sweets and drinks were manufactured it gave a picture of life in the workplace and the benefits en oyed by the employees. George was a philanthropist for whom money meant being able to help others and he continued to fund good causes, including a hospital, until his death in 1922. He was involved with Oxfam, Amnesty International and the setting up of the state pension. The film gave rise to some uestions which Alan answered with amusing anecdotes and even more facts. It was a very en oyable evening although, sadly, he didn‟t bring any Cadbury‟s samples along ean

EVER REEN We thank Pat for organizing another Beetle Drive by special re uest for our first September meeting. This was followed on the 23rd by a most successful outing after a lovely ride to Toddington through the colorful autumn Cotswolds. We took the steam train to Cheltenham, and then re oined our coach. The next stop was Stow-on -the Wold with time for lunch and to explore the shops. Members would have liked the train ourney to have been longer, but there is hope the line may be extended to Broadway in the near future. We are having Val Trinder once again with her lovely slides on 11 November, and the Christmas shopping outing to Witney on the 25th. We are now hoping to put together next year‟s program. Could anyone help by giving talks or entertainment on the second and some fourth afternoons of the month? oda

Last month the Society‟s Chairman, Richard Broadbent, gave a presentation entitled „New ealand - a tale of two islands.‟ nfortunately, his scheduled copresenter was indisposed, so Richard himself led his audience on a photographic tour of the islands which he and his wife visited last year. Starting on the North Island, Richard took the Society through Auckland and the Coromandel peninsula, taking in such features as the Hidden Railway, Hot Water Beach Springs, Cathedral Cove and the geo-thermal Hidden Valley at Orakei orako, before crossing the Cook Strait from Wellington to the South Island. Continuing, Richard‟s travels took us on to Nelson, the sea and beach wildlife at Cape Farewell, past the vineyards and mountains to aikura and then to Christchurch, whose city centre is still largely unbuilt following the devastating earth uake of three years ago. After visiting the Moeraki Boulders and crossing Manapouri Lake, the ourney ended at Te Anau with its nearby dense, mossdraped rainforest. Throughout the presentation, Richard showed a range of unusual and visually striking photographs, complemented by his inimitable description of events. A fascinating photographic „tour de force,‟ that was much appreciated by his audience. The evening concluded with a reprise of photographs from the Society‟s annual exhibition, which were displayed at Adderbury Institute in September. The next meeting of the Society is on 4 November, when Micki Aston CPAGB will return to give a presentation on „Jerusalem and Istanbul - two ancient cities.‟ Member Simon Lutter will lead a workshop on „camera controls and composing photographs‟ on 18 November and, on 2 December, John Credland APAGB also returns with a presentation entitled „Salon de Refus es.‟ All meetings are at 7.30 pm in the Cartwright Hotel, Aynho. Just come along, you can be assured of a warm welcome. o n

CO As we head into November summer seems a long time ago, but we are still living off the highs of a brilliant week at Summer Camp during the summer holidays. This year was a return visit to Wales with our farm field site right on the edge of Llangorse Lake near Brecon. The week was packed with activities including caving at Porth- r-Ogoff where our instructor praised Adderbury Scouts for having the drive to try so many more challenges than many other groups their age. We biked, hiked, and zip wired around the area and utilised the lake next to our field for both canoeing and raft building. We climbed under and umped into waterfalls during a day of Gorge Walking and ate meals cooked on wood fires at our camp site. The estrel Patrol, under Ben Haynes leadership, took home the Lidster Trophy for winning the most days in the weekâ€&#x;s points competition. st An amazing week. If you would like your son to be part of the action at 1 Adderbury why not get their name on our waiting list so they can oin as soon as they are ten years old? Find out more at nd een

It has been brought to the attention of Adderbury Parish Council that dog fouling is again becoming an issue on the Lucy Plackett Playing Field and around the village generally. There are a number of dog waste bins in the village, as well as at the Playing Field. Therefore, the Parish Council would kindly remind dog owners, to clean up after their pets and use these bins for the health and safety of the community and specifically for the children who play in the Lucy Plackett Playing Field. Free dog waste bags are available in The Bell and Adderbury Stores. If the problem persists, then the Parish Council will have to engage the services of the Dog Warden, which may result in fines for irresponsible dog owners. ee a o Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer to Adderbury Parish Council ARNIN

SEPTEM ER OCTO ER Our speaker on 1 September was Christine Vick, who gave a talk about growing and using herbs. She works at the National Herb Centre in Warmington. The centre was set up in 1995 by Peter Turner in an ideal location, south facing on sloping ground. It is sheltered and ideal for the many sunloving herbs while the soil is a dusty orange with a high mineral content. When you are choosing herbs to plant in your garden, it is wise to check their eventual height as some will grow surprisingly large like enne nge ica o age eca pane and o e a . Cat owners take note, scientific research indicates that eca pane has a sedative effect on mice. The age family is large. a ia o icina i , best known as common garden sage, comes in many colours, purple, tricolour, gold, and flavours from the Mexican varieties, pineapple, blackcurrant, which are half hardy. There are numerous species of e, useful evergreens for poor soil. They are drought-loving, and the plants have to be cut after flowering, or they will sprawl everywhere. If you have a a i plant on your kitchen window-sill looking a bit sad, Christine suggests to help it recover by moving it to a bigger pot and keep snipping the leaves away. Apparently there is a new gin available now called The Botanist flavoured by some unusual herbs. There are also various tonic waters with herbal flavourings for your G & Ts. It is worth a visit to the National Herb Centre. As well as seeing hundreds of different herbs in situ there is a nature trail, a gift shop, a farm shop and a Bistro th in a converted 19 century stone barn. Our speaker for October was Paul Williams, who was Head Gardener at Bourton House for 18 years. He is currently on a pro ect at Whichford Potteries. His first book is titled Creative Containers, and I asked him to sign my copy of Creative Climbers, which I received as a present a while back. He has written others full of ideas, techni ues and beautiful photographs. Digging Deeper, which won the Garden Writersâ€&#x; Guild Enthusiasts Book of the ear when it was first published, was the title of his talk and caused some speculation as to what the talk was about. It evolved to be more looking closer at what grows and lives in our gardens. We were asked to guess what the first picture was. It took us a moment to recognise frost patterns on windows. Then a couple of wheelbarrows modern art maybe. The fuchsia bloom was home to aphids, while a bee was at home, sheltered, inside the centre of a foxglove. In fact there are busy little creatures everywhere. Mice had chewed through the starter on Paulâ€&#x;s strimmer making it obsolete as no spare parts are now available. Voles had eaten the bark around a continued on page


young tree. Worms are good though at pulling the leaves down into the soil. The texture of soils makes a lot of difference as to what is planted. Clay can be improved with the addition of sand and organic material such as gypsum. Paul had collected many unusual plant leaves and flowers to show us, and it was really interesting to see all the varieties. Members took home some of the cuttings and hopefully once planted will flourish, here in Adderbury. After Paul had answered our uestions our Chairman, David White gave a vote of thanks on behalf of a very appreciative audience. Welcome to our new members Ben ie Owen, Rosemary Willox and Nicola Wilson. We hope you en oy your time with us. Remember our 10 discount at the Herb Centre when we take our AGC Membership Card. This also applies to the Farnborough Plant Centre on the Southam Road and Applegarth Nurseries on Banbury Road, Chipping Norton. a a a a ot Our next meeting is on 3 November when Janet Cropley a long time friend of our Club will talk about Winter Gardening. od o e t





With the recent increase in the cost of fuel, domestic heating oil is becoming a target for thieves. Following these simple ideas can act as a deterrent. Donâ€&#x;t be left out in the CCTV can deter thieves and record any tampering or theft Oil levels check these often and report any irregularities Location of your oil tank, so it is in view of the property Defensive planting can deter thieves, grow prickly hedges Consider using security lighting to illuminate your tank, use an alarm for oil levels or build a cage around the tank. It is difficult to secure such a valuable asset as it is kept outside, often in full view and has to be accessed easily by your fuel supplier. If damaged by thieves it could also cause an environmental catastrophe. If your tank is emptied by a thief then you could be left with no heating. Remember to check the oil level in your tank regularly, look for spilt fuel, marks on locks or anything else suspicious and report this through the non emergency 101 en uiry centre.
