WILD FLOWERS AT THE RISE ADDERBURY In the middle of September we had a great weeding session, filling 9 bags with tall fat hen plants - Chenopodium Album - which had suddenly shot up. As we were finishing, an interested local resident, Jack Hooker, came over to see what we were doing and, seeing our filled bags, gallantly offered us the use of his home brown bins into which he emptied those unwanted pesky weeds. Imagine our surprise when two days later, we discovered corncockle plants Agrostemma Githago - growing amongst our flowers, which had been completely hidden by the fat hen. The corncockle had come from this year’s Grow Wild Seeds and we were all delighted to see them We have registered for more Grow Wild Seeds and hope these will be available to bloom in 2017 thus continuing our pretty display of bright wild flowers for The Rise for a new year. Find Wild Flowers at The Rise Adderbury on Facebook via their search engine and on Adderbury Parish Council website. Adderbury Parish Council

ADDERBURY HISTORY ASSOCIATION Railway history expert Martin Bloxsom gave us an absorbing account of the role of local railways in World War I, focusing for the most part on Banbury. He first outlined the position of the railways at the beginning of the war, emphasising just how large and powerful the railway companies were. He then showed us the many tasks the railways had to carry out, with Banbury being an important junction for cross-country routes, making it possible to avoid London altogether. He told us of the traffic towards the south coast with troops for embarkation, with the volume of hay for horses over the same route being surprising, and the transport north through Banbury of South Wales coal for the destroyer port of Immingham being completely unexpected. While dealing expertly with the technicalities of his subject, Martin kept coming back to the human element. He covered in particular the involvement of women in railway work as the war progressed: they not only took over almost entirely the work of clerks, but also worked in large numbers as porters and engine cleaners. Worker representation and trade unionism was also covered. Martin featured the hospital trains which the railway companies provided to transport wounded troops throughout the country, and found time to praise the support provided for troops passing through Banbury by Miss Day and her nurses. He finished with a short account of the losses suffered by the railway companies in the war, and showed us some of the different types of war memorials that were developed, including memorial trains. _____________________________________ Phil Mansell

LIGHTS, MUSIC AND LAUGHTER Lots and lots of lovely laughter! It was Adderbury Theatre workshop’s 2016 cabaret ‘The Variety Show’ and what a very happy evening’s entertainment it was. Kicking-off the show was the, ever, ebullient Gary Leonardi complete with frock coat and really, really ghastly co-respondent shoes - even Noel Coward would have winced at being asked to wear them! Comedy continued coming in large dollops with a trio of duos - Denise Barson and Matt Parker and two old Theatre Workshop favourites Elaine Bryant and Wendy Gardner; Linda Leslie and Lisa Smith Music was played by Val Scarff (who else?) and song by Karen Dwyer whose voice has matured and mellowed into a true cabaret style. Karen Reynolds in an unmistakable wartime frock and snood* did a magical take on Victoria Wood - it was a quite uncanny likeness. Elaine and Wendy’s skit on computer fruits - blackberry, orange and apple was very clever; as was Denise and Matt’s bedroom scene 50 Shades of Grey. Gayna Lee, in Pam Ayres mode, performed her Adderbury monologue. As for the two male strippers - Gary and Jamie Cox they performed wonders with two highly coloured bathtowels - oh! and a very small, blue, napkin! Gary and Jamie did that lovely Cissy and Ada sketch - with Cissy’s memorable line ‘Were you virgo intacta?’ with Ada’s reply ‘No Bed and breakfast’. Then we had the Corps de Dance - a galaxy of, lovely, long-legged ladies wearing little black numbers dancing a Marlene Dietrich routine also they did a magical routine with glo-lights - on an unlit stage. We had a first - I think - a male singer with Matt Parker singing a solo accompanying himself on the electronic piano. The show was rounded-off with the full cast, all dressed in black, singing the finale. It really was a very happy evening; the Institute hall was all dressed-up looking the part as a night-club. A large dollop of credit must go to Jamie Cox the director who got the best out of everybody involved with the stage hands working like Trojans - nearly every act needed chairs of various sorts and layouts - all done in the pitched-black darkness. Oh and a very big thanks to the long-legged young ladies who kept the audience lubricated. My only carp was that the programme was a tad too long - although I’m darned if I could decide what to cut - perhaps the interval! Oh! and thanks must go to the front of house and bar team always there to make things go smoothly. * If you don’t know what a snood is just ask someone over seventy! __________________________________________ N.J.A

ADDERBURY REMEMBERS THE SOMME The service held to remember the six men from the village, took place on 6 October. The order of service started with the hymn "Rock of Ages" as the RBL standard was brought forward. This was followed by readings beginning with Ken Wright and "Soldiers from across the Empire" then Emily Ness with "Soldiers from across Ireland". The Rev. Fletcher's reading was entitled "The German Army witness the first tank" and finally Edd Frost with "A moment of British humanity". Prayers followed and an old recording of "Keep the home fires burning" was played. Candles were lit for the six men from Adderbury. Jean Fletcher read Sassoon's "Aftermath". A Bible reading was given and then the names of the Fallen from Adderbury were read out by the President of the Adderbury and Milton Branch of the RBL, Nigel Randall. A slide show was given with commentary by William Fletcher. A wreath was laid at the War Memorial on behalf of the RBL by our youngest member, Joshua. The Standard was presented and after the buglers had delivered the Last Post a minute’s silence was observed. The last hymn "O God our help in ages past" and prayers, brought this very moving service to a close. The Fallen: CALEB ARTHUR WYATT, Aged 26 WALTER PERCY MOREBY, Aged 23 EDWIN CYRIL BONNER, Aged 20 CHARLES EDWARD FISHBOURNE, Aged 47 PERCY WALLACE B. PARGETER, Aged 20 JAMES WILLIAM BENNETT, Aged 23 WE WILL REMEMBER THEM Jean Moore Secretary Adderbury and Milton RBL ___________________________________________

ADDERBURY AND MILTON BRANCH ROYAL BRITISH LEGION The Annual Remembrance Service will be held in St. Mary's Church Adderbury on Sunday 13 November at 3pm.

ADDERBURY NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN At the time of writing it is anticipated that the proposed Neighbourhood Plan will be accepted by the Parish Council at their meeting on 25 October. The Plan then passes to Cherwell District Council and inspectors for scrutiny before entering a six week consultation period, before Christmas, for all of us and certain stakeholders (utilities, County Council, etc) to comment. When the Plan is approved, a village referendum will be organised by Cherwell District Council in the New Year. We are writing to let you know that the full Plan will shortly be available on the www.adderbury.org and www.adderburypc.co.uk websites with a printed copy for inspection in the Library. You are invited to make your comments on the Plan before 13 December via these websites or place them in the comments box in the Library. More than 100 Adderbury residents have done a great deal of work over the last 4 years to get this neighbourhood plan to where we are now. The results of consultation meetings and surveys were distilled into the “TAP” report, which set out a vision and objectives for our village across a range of topics: housing, employment, education, community facilities, transport and the environment. The headline objectives were that, whilst Adderbury should grow to allow a few more homes that it should stay as a village with clear buffers from Banbury and other villages. Since then over 180 new homes have been given approval in Adderbury and therefore this plan does not make provision for any more new homes. Other important objectives were to protect the character of our village and plan for the improvement of our employment provision, services and leisure facilities over the next 15 years. It is important to note that some of the TAP objectives, such as traffic reduction and wildlife protection can’t be addressed by land use planning policies and these will be addressed in a future Parish Plan prepared by Adderbury Parish Council. This Neighbourhood Plan contains 18 land-use planning policies that will help to meet these objectives by being used to determine planning applications in the area. The policies will aim to protect the special character of the Parish to encourage development proposals for the benefit of the local community. These policies are summarised below to give you a flavour: Policy AD1: Settlement Boundary The Neighbourhood Plan defines an Adderbury Settlement Boundary closely following the built up area of Adderbury. Proposals for infill development within the boundary will be supported, provided they accord with the design and development management policies of the development plan and other policies of the Neighbourhood Plan. Proposals for development outside the boundary will only supported if they are consistent with development plan policies on local landscape protection and the protection of the natural environment. Continued on page 22 21 21


22 22


Policies AD2,3 & 4: Green infrastructure, Local Green Spaces, Open Spaces The Neighbourhood Plan proposes the establishment of a Green Infrastructure Network around and within the village comprising a variety of green infrastructure assets, including informal open space and green spaces, allotments, playing fields. Assets of biodiversity value, play areas, footpaths, bridleways and cycle ways. New development will not normally be permitted on land designated as Local Green Space or Local Open Space except in very special circumstances. The following locations are designated as Local Green Spaces:  Lucy Plackett Playing Field (Off Round Close Road);  Colin Butler Green (Registered Common);  Adderbury Lakes Local Nature Reserve, off Lake Walk;  Adderbury Cemetery and the Quaker Burial Grounds and Meeting House;  Sports and community use Land to north side of Milton Road;  Historic stonewalled lambing paddock fronting onto Aynho Road (To west of the Pickled Ploughman Public House); and  Field with stone wall boundary abutting New Road, Adderbury. (West of Pump House Garage). Also known as Thistlewayte’s Field.  The Village Green Local Open Spaces are:  Former railway embankment on southern edge of the Lucy Plackett Field;  Triangle of land at Horn Hill Road, Berry Hill Road and Milton Road;  Copse of trees south of Greenhill and Summers Close off Banbury Road;  The Village Pound on The Horn Hill Road, Berry Hill Road junction;  Bloor Homes, Aynho Road;  David Wilson Homes, south of Milton Road;  Rawlins Close Open Space, off Margaret Road;  The Crescent Open Space, Banbury Road;  The Rise Open Space, off Banbury Road;  Land to west of Adderbury Court Open Space;  Adderbury Court Garden, Banbury Road;  Keytes Close Amenity Area; Aynho Road;  Sydenham Close Open Space, Aynho Road;  Allotments, Adderbury House;  Henry Jepp Close Open Space, Aynho Road; and  Lake Walk Green. Policy AD5: Local Gaps The Neighbourhood Plan provides Local Gaps (green “buffer zones”) between the village and Bodicote/Banbury and between the village and Milton to prevent the neighbourhood Plan coalescence of the settlements into one built up area.

Policies AD6 to AD16: Design in Different Village Areas and Settings: In each designated area there are appropriate design requirements encompassing such matters as: plot ratios; building height and form; type of building materials; boundary walls, fences, hedges and front gardens and their alignment to the road; tree plantings; natural verges to the highway; informal green spaces; footways; maintaining lines of sight to the Church and views of the countryside Policy AD17: Local Heritage Assets The Neighbourhood Plan identifies the following buildings and structures as Local Heritage Assets by way of their local architectural or historic interest:  The Crescent  The Pump House Garage  The Walled Lambing Paddock, Aynho Road  The Pound, Horn Hill Road  Long Wall, Long Wall Path  Twyford Tea Gardens, Banbury Road Proposals for a change of use or alteration that will result in harm to the significance of a Local Heritage Asset, or for its demolition, will be resisted. Policy AD18: New Community Facilities The Plan allocates land off Milton Road, West Adderbury for sports and community uses. Proposals for such uses of the land will be supported, provided: I. Any buildings on site are ancillary to such uses and have regard to the location of the site in the West Adderbury – Milton Local Gap; II. Vehicular access is made from Milton Road and sufficient car parking spaces are provided; III. Safe pedestrian and cycle access is developed to the site; and IV. The layout, the landscape scheme and any lighting have regard to the proximity of the adjoining residential and employment uses. The recent leisure survey of Adderbury households identified multiple possible uses on the Milton Road site with a preference for a large community centre, football pitches and part woodland on the site. Proposals for the improvement and extension of the community facilities at Lucy Plackett Fields will be supported, provided they do not undermine the visual integrity of the Local Green Space. The leisure survey identified multiple possible uses on the Lucy Plackett Field with preference for a small community centre and an upgrade of the play area.

They will be delivered by volunteers with all proceeds going to help keep the library open. Available from 1 December to the 20 December ————————————————————————Continue from page 27 In the introduction to the survey, we indicated that some funds could be realised from a “profit share” by releasing, for additional housing (about 6 homes), a small piece land that will become available to the Parish Council as part of the already approved housing development on the north side of Milton Road. No objection was received to this proposal, but it will only go part of the way to meeting the funds required. The majority contribution will have to come from community fundraising, Sports England grants and funds from similar bodies including possibly the Lottery Fund. General funds raised should be used with the benefit of the whole community in mind. There will also be annual maintenance costs to be funded.

ADDERBURY GUIDES Camp was awesome. The theme was Guiding in the War, and that turned out to mean everything from a makeshift fairground, making our own war with a giant water-fight, semaphore, shooting water pistols at targets, some classic Guiding camp gadgets and loads more. Also swimming, going to the park, treasure hunting, an amazing campfire, a ridiculous amount of marshmallows and squirty cream and a lot of other stuff which didn’t quite fit the theme but hey ho. Yeah, this camp was 4 days long. Needless to say, we enjoyed ourselves. September = back to Guides month. At Horley, we competed in a Division sports competition (we weren’t… the strongest team) and a Patrol Competition, which means when all Cherwell Division Guide groups get together and in Patrols (small groups), do loads of activities and get marked on skill and teamwork. Tasks included compass sculptures, entertainment devising, raft making etc. Apparently, we are a pretty amazing team because we came 3rd, not many points away from 2nd and 1st (congratulations, girls, I’m seriously proud of you). We then had a massive campfire (obviously) with songs at the top of our voices, and then slept outside. Literally outside. At camp we slept in tents. No, this time, we braved it under the stars. It poured with rain. We got soaked. But it was totally worth it. In other meetings, we got our circus skills badge through a night of diabolos, juggling balls, balloon modelling and stilts. Some of the Guides actually got some skills, others were very… entertaining. We got our Circus Skills badge from that (trip to the circus coming up - so excited!) We have played far too many games with chocolate and doughnuts than Jamie Oliver would approve of, we’ve had a fashion show, we’ve done International cooking, we’ve played a lot of ‘Murder in the Dark’ (don’t ask), we went bell-boating at Canal Day (lots of splashing and lying on the front of the boat paddling with hands) and we’re going on to work on the Confectioner and World Traveller badges. So, I conclude this Contact by saying: come join us if you are 10-14 and like food. Or like water. Or playing games, fire, teamwork, trying weird things and laughing about it or the outdoors. Actually, seeing as we are a girl-led organisation, our activities are whatever the girls choose. So, basically, if you are 10-14 and if you like anything, contact mary.brodey@btinternet.com or 01869 338397. Emma Brodey Leader in training, 1st Adderbury Guides 31 31

VOICES ACROSS TIME I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS It’s 1942, 17th December to be precise and the evening of the school nativity in Adderbury. But the evening’s performance is threatened by the sounding of the village air raid siren. The locals pile into the local community air raid shelter to escape the threat of bombings, among them are evacuees Jimmy Williams and Beth Lawson, home guard Stanley Jameson and heart-throb GI Frank George. Through well-known songs of the era, the community spend their time sharing their challenges, excitements and heataches of wartime Christmas, whilst keeping morale high. So distraught by the cancellation of the nativity, they help come up with an idea to cheer Jimmy up…. Following the success of Singing for The Somme, Voices Across Time presents an original audience participatory musical, “I’ll be Home for Christmas”. Join an original cast of local young actors in an evening of festive entertainment, led by Royal Academy of London’s Joseph Cummings. There will be sing along festive classics and WW2 favourites, a licensed bar and, though rationing is in place, complimentary festive treats too. After the performance, the shelter will transform into the GI’s annual Christmas party with music from the Andrews Sisters, dancing and plenty of mistletoe. Profits from the evening will go to Katharine House Hospice Musical Appeal and The See-Saw Charity. The evening will take place in Adderbury’s Institute, Saturday 17 December 2016. The doors will open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start, bar available. Tickets are £10 and are available for reservation at the box office on 07532446665 or email voicesacrosstime@outlook.com. Voices Across Time is a non-profit organisation who put on audience participation musical performances based on British history, raising money for various charities. The Voices Across Time team are Joseph Cummings, Florence Taylor and Harriet Wells, and they look forward to seeing you on the 17 December. ___________________________________________ Continued from page 19 Do the villages of Adderbury and Milton want our branch of the Royal British Legion to close?? We are now down to a membership of only 14, and for the size of the two villages together this is a very low total. There must be more exservice personnel out there and of course we welcome any non ex-service who might be interested in the group. So we would ask you all to please make an effort to come along to our AGM meeting at Adderbury Bowls Club on Thursday 17 November at 2pm, to show your support and help us keep our Branch alive. This year is our 95th Anniversary year and we want to reach our 100th. we desperately need new members to achieve this target. We will welcome any younger members of the two villages to join us also and to see what the Legion does and what it offers. Thankyou.

With that in mind FOSMA will again be selling Christmas cards which will be available in Church after the service on Sundays in the run up to Christmas and also from Trish Fennell on 811059 and trish.fennell@btconnect.com and Val Scarff on 810386 or ask any of our committee members and they will be able to get some for you. FOSMA will be at the 10 November Adderbury Community Food Market in the Institute between 6 and 8 pm so do come and see us there - we’ll be selling Christmas cards and tickets for the Christmas concert (see below).

We have a big challenge ahead of us helping to raise funds for the necessary repairs to the tower so our Friends support will be even more vital. On 10 December we are very much looking forward to the welcome return of the wonderful Christ Church Cathedral Singers to St. Mary’s. The programme will be of Carols for Choir and Audience, to include well-known favourites alongside more modern Christmas works and readings. The concert will start at 7.30 pm and there will be a bar selling mulled wine and mince pies. We look forward to seeing you there to enjoy getting into the festive spirit! Tickets £12 are available from Trish and Val (details above) and also on the door. Thank you to everyone for your continued support - we couldn’t survive without it!

We met in August for “Games in the Garden” on a lovely summer evening in the heart of Adderbury, to play quoits, skittles, Boule, Jenga and croquet followed by a delicious bring and share supper plus strawberries, shortbread and Pimms. In September, members were delighted by Sharp and Blunt Ladies Morris light-footed routine, a brief, chatty history narrative, followed by an invitation to join them on the Institute’s floor for a rousing finale to a splendid evening Our much anticipated Horton and Horley walk will happen sometime this month, weather permitting, and at October’s meeting, Chris Bazeley entertained members to his fascinating and amusing presentation “The Private life of the Privy”. New members are always welcome at The Institute on the first Thursday of each month at 7.30pm where they are assured of an enthusiastic reception.

ADDERBURY LAKES PROGRESS The patience of our regular visitors has been very much appreciated as work on the paths took longer than anticipated. Stage 2 of our project to improve access to the Lakes is now completed and we hope it makes a positive difference especially to our less able visitors. We were able to do this thanks to a further generous grant from the Trust for Oxfordshire’s Environment and a donation from Hamberley Development as part of a Community Fund Donation associated with the Gracewell Care Home development currently being built in the village, together with funds added from the Parish Council as part of the ongoing budget for the Lakes. Residents from Lake House Care Home have visited the western side new path and were delighted with the improvements. This winter we will plan the final stage of the paths project and start to make funding applications. The APC have also commissioned a Structural Engineer to advise us on work required to conserve the ice house and hope to attract funding for a Lakes heritage project to include the ice house and restoration of the iron fence. We were delighted to welcome four new members to our working party on 8 October. Tasks undertaken this season include clearing the Lake Walk entrance area and the Victorian iron fence of brambles and ivy. The next dates are 5 November and 3 December 9am -12pm. For further details please contact Phil Mansell on 01295 810442 or philandbmansell@hotmail.com And if you have any views or ideas about the Lakes do please get in touch.

PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY Last month, professional photographers Peter and Margaret Preece gave a presentation on ‘Wildlife and nature photographs - every picture tells a story.’ Peter took up photography on his retirement, but resisted transferring to the digital format until three years ago. His main interest is on photographing wildlife. Peter is also deeply involved in the Heart of England Forest project, which was set up by Felix Dennis before his death in 2014. This project has acquired 6,000 acres of farmland in Warwickshire, that has landscaped areas to create wildlife habitats among 1.4 million trees. Peter has free access to the estate, where he has set up nest boxes and hides so he can indulge his passion for bird photography, perfecting a technique for attracting his favourite subject - the kingfisher - and showing many action shots. Peter uses pop-up hides and his car (painted in camouflage colours) to get near his subjects. He told us how he attracts birds or mammals to the spot where his camera is pre-focused, sometimes using animal carcasses which have been stored in his freezer as bait. He travels regularly to Scotland and to northern Spain, and most of his photos captured the subjects in action. As well as birds, Peter also showed shots of mammals including voles, harvest mice, wood mice, rats, weasels, foxes, grey seals and hares, together with butterflies, damselflies and dragonflies. Peter does not like to adjust his wildlife photos by using Photoshop, other than cropping them, but he finished by showing a few amusing manipulations that he uses for Christmas cards and calendars. In summary, a most interesting presentation by two very experienced wildlife photographers that was much appreciated by their audience. The Society’s next Club Night is on 2 November, when Viveca Koh FRPS will give a presentation on ‘An urban exploration of fine art - a photographic journey.’ This will be followed by a presentation on 7 December from member Gail Girvan entitled ‘From the shadows back to light, pastels to camera.’ In addition, a Workshop will be held on 16 November, when member Simon Lutter will discuss ‘Camera controls, light sensitivity and white balance.’ There is no Workshop in December. All meetings start at 7.30pm, and are held in the Cartwright Hotel, Aynho. Please come along to any our meetings, you can be assured of a warm welcome. Richard Broadbent www.addphoto.co.uk

KATHARINE HOUSE HAS A NEW LOOK AND A NEW WEBSITE! Over the next few months you’ll notice a difference in the way we look. We’re still the same Katharine House that has looked after local families facing life-limiting illnesses for over 25 years, but we’ve updated our look and feel to prepare us for the next 25 years, because we believe it’s important to truly reflect what an organisation is like; its philosophy, its vision and what it feels like when you walk through the door. On our website you can now securely donate, register for the Santa Fun Run, or buy a Christmas card with the click of a button on your computer, tablet or phone. It’s much easier for you and it saves us time and money when we process everything at our end. We’ve also changed the structure of the site so that it’s easier for you to find what you need and clear for you to understand. That’s how we’d talk things through with you if you visit us in person, so we think it should be the same on our website. You can see all the changes at www.khh.org.uk SANTA FUN RUN - SATURDAY 4 DECEMBER, SPICEBALL PARK We hope you’ll join us for our 7th annual Santa Fun Run to raise funds for your local hospice. You can run (or walk!) the route for fun, fitness, or in memory of family or friends. Bring your family, or sign up to run with co-workers or your sports team. For further information, visit www.khh.org.uk/Event/santa-fun-run or pick up a leaflet from one of our shops. CHRISTMAS CARDS Our ever popular Christmas cards are now on sale in our shops, and you can also buy them direct from our new website. To buy your cards online, please visit our online shop at www.khh.org.uk/pages/shop/department/christmas LIGHTS OF LOVE SERVICES 2016 We’d like to invite you to our Lights of Love services this December. If you’d like to remember someone special, or just want to be around other people who are also thinking of loved ones this Christmas, we hope you’ll join us in Banbury or Brackley. If you’d like to dedicate a light in memory of someone special, please visit www.khh.org.uk or pick up a leaflet from one of our shops. The services are as follows:  Banbury: Thursday 1 December, 7pm at St. Mary’s Church  Brackley: Wednesday 7 December, 7.30pm at St. Peter’s Church
