ADDERBURY CRICKET NEEDS YOU! FANCY A GAME? PHONE NICK FENNELL NOW ON 811059 Well you never know, after the Parish Poll we might get our cricket field back but in the meantime we will have to make do with the 23rd staging of the annual match against the boys from Milton. This year the big match will be on Sunday 3 September at Broughton & North Newington CC at 2pm, when we will be fighting to regain our hold on the Millennium Trophy inaugurated as part of the village celebrations in 1995. Adderbury were desperately unlucky in 2016, but this year we think we can really do the business 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. If you fancy a game, phone Nick Fennell now on 811059. The Adderbury Barmy Army is always the best part of our performance - we look forward to seeing all our supporters again this year at Milton’s excellent new venue - the teas are well worth the trip. Nick Fennell

ADDERBURY HISTORY ASSOCIATION MAY MEETING Our May meeting was all about Stowe Park Gardens and attracted a full house in the Methodist schoolroom. Barry Smith has worked his way up to become the Head Gardener at the National Trust estate and gave us a talk on the restoration of the 18th Century gardens. Begun in the 1680s as a series of terraces and orchards, from 1720 onwards many leading architects, landscape gardeners, including William Kent and Capability Brown, and sculptors were employed to create the idealized classical landscape which exists today. However, by 1848 the owner, the Duke of Buckingham, was declared bankrupt and many of the contents of the house and gardens were sold off to save the estate. Further decline in the family’s fortunes led to it being sold to educationalists to provide a home for Stowe, a newly established public school, in 1922. The school authorities endeavoured to maintain the garden features but inevitably the cost forced them to hand over the grounds and temple buildings to the National Trust in 1990. Restoration proper of the gardens began and is still continuing. The garden layout represents a classical journey through life, each area being symbolic of mythology and human choices. The many temples are focal points with the planting providing backdrops or drawing the eye into the vistas. Groundsmen, gardeners and farmers worked together to establish a contrived natural landscape which blends into the surrounding countryside. Barry explained that the restoration work has involved salvaging old trees, dredging lakes, uncovering paths, digging hahas, erecting fences and obtaining replica statues for the different areas, in order to return it as closely as possible to its origins while using old and new techniques, materials and plants. He was both knowledgeable and entertaining in his presentation and spoke without notes for over an hour reflecting his enjoyment of his work. Many of us had already been to Stowe but will appreciate it all the more on future visits. Jean Davis ———————————————————————

EVERGREENS On the 10 May a tour of local villages took us to Yarnton Garden Centre for lunçh and on the journey back we visited the bluebell woods at Great Tew which were beautiful and a delight to see and really enjoyed by all. On the 24 May we had lunch at Gracewell in Twyford. A big thank you to Rhoda for her kindness in treating us all to this. A tour around the care home ended a delightful time. A big thank you to all the staff. On 14 June we welcomed back Simon Lutter to show us more of his interesting photographs and on the 28 June we enjoyed cream teas at Chaddle Barn Farm. 9

ADDERBURY DEDDINGTON AND DISTRICT PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY The monthly meeting in June was treated to a presentation of varied photographs by visiting speaker, Yin Wong. All his pictures were taken on his recent visit to the Yunnan Province of China. He started by explaining that Yunnan was a province rarely visited by western tourists, but was visited by the Chinese on vacations. Yin showed a map which explained the location of Yunnan in Southern China. High mountains to the north give an equitable climate with temperatures averaging 12-20 degrees. The Chinese population is made up of about 40 ethnic groups, the main being the “Han” group who form 95% of the total. About 25% of remaining ethnic groups are in Yunnann, with each ethnic group having a unique culture. Yin started in Kunming with street scenes showing people in attractive ethnic costume which are normal wear, and not just for the benefit of tourists. Different cultures can be identified by exquisitely embroidered colourful regional costumes, with exotic hats or headdress. A walk through deep caves provided interesting pictures of floodlit rock formations and vast caverns. Followed by pictures showing the “Stone Forest”. An area of limestone rocks deeply eroded over millions of years producing freestanding pillars and deep ravines which looked almost like a conifer forest. Yunnan claims to be the first place ever to drink tea, and is well known throughout China for production of fine quality and expensive varieties of tea. The photo tour moved on to Shangrila (known as Zang Din) where the ethnic group are the Pu’Ah. Here there were monastic buildings on the mountainsides in a regional architectural style, at an altitude of 11,000 feet. Sweeping curve shaped roofs are believed to ward off bad luck. Some interesting photos of small Mongolian ponies with riders dressed in regional costume, followed by scenes of narrow cobbled streets with indigenous Shangrila style closely built wooden houses. The area is very fertile, photos of the plentiful supply of fruits and vegetables mean travellers need never go hungry! The next place to be visited was Li Jian in the Dali region of Tibet, well known to Chinese for its production of jade ornaments and jewellery. This rarely visited province of China obviously has great potential for keen photographers with its stunning mountain gorges, hillside villages, quaint architecture, street scenes, and photogenic colourfully dressed residents who are willing to be photographed. Next Meeting: 5th July. Clubnight Cartwright Hotel Aynho. Beyond auto, take control of your camera. Presented by Bob Brind Surch. All are welcome Paul Brewerton

METHODIST CHAPEL In answer to the suggestion to sell the Methodist chapel to fund other community facilities, the official Methodist position is that it cannot legally happen. Here are the facts. All Methodist chapel premises are owned by the Methodist Church at national level. Any decision to dispose of them would need to be if they had no purpose and at the request of the Adderbury Methodist Church Council. This would need approval within Methodist circles at local, district and national level. Because the Methodist Church is a registered charity any sale would have to be to the highest bidder under charity law and, under the same legislation, the proceeds would have to be used by the Methodist Church to fund Christian work locally. We are a vibrant worshipping community, drawn from within the village and across the area and need our building as a base for our various activities. However, we believe that we are also there to serve the community and are delighted that our hall is used as a central, accessible and comfortable facility by many community groups on a regular basis, a lot of whose members come on foot. Long may it continue! Val Trinder Secretary to Adderbury Methodist Church Council

——————————————————————— THE LAKES OPEN DAY SATURDAY 16 SEPTEMBER The Lakes Nature Reserve will be holding its Open Day on Saturday, 16 September - an ideal opportunity to discover this beautiful secret corner if you are a newcomer to the village or the chance to see the Lakes you know from new and different angles. The open day will last from 10.00 in the morning until 4.00 in the afternoon, and we’re planning a full programme of activities for all the family. There will be quizzes, competitions and craft activities for the children, together with boat trips on the lake. And with the help of other conservationist groups and individuals, we will be presenting new perspectives on the wildlife of the area. As well as being a lovely place to be, of course, the Lakes are part of the history of the village. So there will be talks on the Ice House and the eighteenthcentury estate, on the nineteenth-century garden and a rare chance to walk through the park of Adderbury House down to the Sor Brook and learn about its mills and the unusual “willow carr” landscape at the southern end of the nature reserve. A full programme will appear in the September edition of Contact and will be on display at our stall at the Community Market on 14 September. We look forward to seeing you at the Lakes on 16 September. Phil Mansell 13

ADDERBURY GUIDES Summer is my favourite term in Guiding because we can get outdoors and try things we have never done before. In May, the Guides and I got on a coach with 30 other Guides in our area to go and scale climbing walls, race in canoes, try out fencing, jump from a platform way up in the air onto a trapeze, feel our way around an obstacle course while blindfolded and generally get rather uncomfortably close to our own deaths. This was the fantastic Guide weekend away to the PGL activity centre. The most popular activity was the Giant Swing. Basically, you are winched ridiculously high into the air and then they drop you. For a moment, you are falling. Then the rope catches you. Then you are swinging. Then you are flying. (Hands up who thinks I enjoyed myself on this trip?). In other Guiding news, we have had three evenings planned by the Guides. The first was a murder mystery night. A group of the Guides wrote their own crime drama, complete with manors, mistresses, maids and murders. The other Guides dressed up and pretended to be a character in the story while trying to solve the crime. See photo on Page 2. The second Guide led evening was an April Fools night. The Guides did the bean-boozled jelly bean challenge - will your jelly bean taste like chocolate or dog food, marshmallow or baby wipes? (Spoiler alert, it was a double bluff, all the jelly beans were nice, we’re nice people like that). Then they were blindfolded and tasted food and drew (incredibly flattering) portraits of each other and they finished with a massive pillow fight. The last group of Guides ran an Easter night. They decorated polystyrene eggs, did an obstacle course relay race to gain mini eggs and had an Easter egg hunt. Remember the live action Beauty and the Beast film? The new film shows Belle speaking out, being brave, fighting for what she believes in and generally being an awesome woman portrayed by Emma Watson who is equally awesome. Girlguiding aims to empower girls, so Guides across the UK, including Adderbury Guides, went to cinemas to see special Guides only screenings of the film. The film was inspiring, heart-warming and magical and we all loved watching it. There is so much more we have been doing at Guides like pancake cooking on fires, our swimming trip, henna art, games and our amazing talent show, and we’re looking forward to great summer term to come. If you are 10-14 and you would like to get involved in Guiding, we would love you to join us. We meet on Mondays, 7-9pm in the Lucy Plackett Youth Centre. Please go online to Girlguiding Join Us to find us. Emma Brodey 19

WIZARDS AND MUGGLES JOINED FORCES AT THE FETE! On the 10 June Lucy Plackett Field came alive with great spirited wizards, muggles and owls for the 2017 Adderbury Village Fete, in support of Christopher Rawlins Primary School and St Mary’s Church. We were blessed with a beautiful afternoon and hundreds of fete-goers joined us to have a fantastic afternoon. See photos on cover and Page 2. Wonderful entertainment was provided by Year 4 Country Dancers and Kaleidoscope, who we were delighted to welcome back to the Fete. In keeping with the Harry Potter theme, we had wand and broomstick decorating, Jess' potions stall, Flourish & Blotts bookshop, Chrissie’s Owls and the Leaky Cauldron Bar & BBQ. Adding to the atmosphere, stalls included the fabulous WI, brilliant Year 6 Games, Brownies doing the Stocks, as well as face painting, refreshments, ice creams, bouncy castles, plants, bric-a-brac and more. The Crofts-sponsored Dog Show drew big crowds to watch categories such as Dumbledore’s Star Student and Hogwart’s Scholarship. It was a brilliant attraction on the field. And the Duck Race was a popular event which ran the Sunday before the Fete after the Family Service. Thanks go to our main sponsors Barwood Homes, Nicholas King Homes, Spratt Endicott as well as Holmes & Holmes Removals, Trade Secret, Gracewell Care Home, Lake House Care Home and KT Garden Machinery. Many thanks also go to the Parish Council for the use of the Lucy Plackett Field, ARC for the gazebos, Robert Hayes for the bales, Trade Secret for the tables, Radio Horton and St John’s Ambulance. Adderbury Fete is an incredible village day - everyone really came together and there was a wonderful sense of pride and achievement about what we can all do together as a community. We have a brilliant village! Thank you to all the kind volunteers, the generous stall donations and to everyone for coming along with friends and family and having fun! Thank you!

WORKING FOR ADDERBURY COMMUNITY We are a group of villagers with a positive attitude working towards the development of sports pitches and a community facility on the Parish Council owned Milton Road site and the renovation of facilities on the Lucy Plackett Activity Centre. Having successfully won the recent vote in the Parish Poll, we are now making firm plans to take this forward and deliver facilities which reflect the needs and aspirations of the whole village. We are determined not to let this opportunity pass us by and to make speedy process. We have set up a web site: which will keep you up to date with all developments. For further information, please contact Jackie Head at: ———————————————————————————

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING FOR YOUR LOCAL HOSPITAL CHARITY? As the Fundraising and Events Manager at Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals Charitable Funds, I am looking to recruit some new volunteers for our busy events calendar in 2017 and beyond and am eager to reach as many local communities as possible. We traditionally rely on the local communities throughout Oxfordshire to help us achieve our fundraising objectives and help our patients. We are looking for individuals who like meeting new people, trying new things and want to join a fantastic social network by volunteering for their local hospital charity. We provide training and pay all reasonable expenses, so you will never be out of pocket, and with a variety of events planned throughout the year there should be an event to suit everyone’s tastes. Without our volunteers, we simply couldn't do what we do. For more information please contact me on 01865 226211 or at Gail Williams ———————————————————————————

PARKING ETIQUETTE Parking is mostly unallocated in our village and and road side residents like us accept people visiting the shop, hairdresser, pub, market, etc. will park outside our homes. However, we have noticed here on the High Street people using the front of our homes as an extension of their own parking which will inevitably cause problems in the village. Is it neighbourly to regularly park outside other homes unless you have spoken to and agreed with the owner? Let’s all be good neighbours. 21

CONTACT VISITS ADDERBURY’S NEW GRACEWELL CARE HOME Well it’s here - you can’t miss it! - but Contact decided to find out a bit more about Gracewell. We met with Home Manager Jeanne Vella-Eyre. Tell me a bit about you Jeanne is originally from Malta, and is a true elderly care professional. 35 years a nurse, this is the fourth new care home she has commissioned. She lives in Chalgrove with her husband and a menagerie of dogs and cats - one of whom regularly appears here to the delight of the residents Who are Gracewell? Gracewell are a subsidiary of American company Sunrise Senior Living. This is the 19th Gracewell home, and they are expanding rapidly with 5 new homes in each of 2016 and 2017 Why did you choose Adderbury? It’s a good fit geographically and demographically - a relatively affluent area and our nearest home is in Maids Moreton Hall When did you open and how many residents now and in future? They opened on April 6 and already have 17 residents. It’s a phased plan moving up to 60 residents, allowing the build of staff and expertise alongside. The building is spilt into 4 self-contained ‘households’ What services do you provide? There are three elements of care - residential with minimal care needs, nursing care to an individualised level, and memory care (‘we don’t like to use ‘dementia’) also to a bespoke need. What are the costs? Again built on individual needs, but residential is from £1,050 per week, with specific nursing needs starting from £1,175 per week. How does this compare to your competition - and what are your USP’s? Competition is classed as Godswell, Chacombe and Glebefields in Banbury, and Gracewell is very competitively priced against these. However, Jeanne preferred to focus on Gracewell’s other benefits - it’s all-inclusive with 5 star hotel standards, top class catering, all focussed on an individual’s need for care, nutrition, exercise, etc. Importantly they have a strong relationship with Deddington’s GP practice How many staff? This came across as a real point of difference. 45 people at present (9 nurses) and building as needed.

Will there be more opportunities for Adderbury people? Yes! There is an ongoing recruitment programme, covering nursing, housekeeping, catering, reception and admin. Get in touch! What are your plans for the future - apparently there is a planning application in for another phase? Yes there is an application in for a 36-room dementia and neuro-nursing facility at the back of the current building. However this is from the developer Hamberley, who will develop the site, and it might not necessarily be run by Gracewell (ed: This application was approved by the Parish Council at their May meeting) To what extent do you intend to be part of the village? It’s very much part of Jeanne’s philosophy to be part of Adderbury - to support the community and ask that the community supports Gracewell. They have already given to the school and a number of good causes in the village. One planned support is to work with the police to offer temporary refuge for confused people who might have wandered away from a safe environment, until such time as their family is contacted. A warm friendly environment is infinitely better than a sterile police station, albeit temporarily, where there is a calmer atmosphere. What message can Contact give to the people of Adderbury? ‘Thanks for the great welcome we have been given already. We want to be an integral part of the village. For our residents Adderbury is now their home and we want them to take part in the village. Look out for our open days and other events where you can join with us to see what we are providing’ Contact was then privileged to have a short tour of the building, which is extremely impressive and very much 5 star in all its facets. But more importantly there was an aura of care and dedication and expertise which must be a great comfort to the residents Gracewell, Banbury Road.

Chairman pointed out that the community of Adderbury did not own this land at present and it was between CDC and the developer as to whether they accepted the application. It was not for Adderbury PC to decide. However the PC would support the application for 5 houses subject to them being stone built with slate roof and that there would be footpath access from the site to the adjacent community land. The PC would support the application for land to the rear of Gracewell Care Home for the construction of a 36 bedroom specialist nursing facility. With associated access, parking, landscaping and tree planting. FINANCE: The Clerk was thanked and congratulated on her work relating to the Internal Audit. WORKING PARTIES: The Committees and working groups within the PC were agreed with some changes which are available on It was suggested that the finance group and Section 106 Working Groups be merged and a ‘Grants Giving’ group would be added. There would also be a working group for leisure facilities on Milton Road added as well as a Tree Working Group. PC SURGERY: Two residents had attended, raising the matter of the Milton Road land. HEALTH AND SAFETY: All was well at the Lucy Plackett field. A slat in the gate to the play area would be replaced. Photographs of the broken up soft surface at The Rise would be sent to the safety officer. There were no problems at The Lakes. FILMING: A request from the Adderbury Cine Club to film at the walled garden allotments and the Lucy Plackett Playing field was agreed subject to suitable considerations being observed.

Our year of events has continued with a very successful concert in church with Aspirata Vocalis, a choir from Denmark who have been on tour in England taking in Romsey Abbey, Winchester and Salisbury cathedrals - and St. Mary’s Adderbury!

It has been brought to the attention of the Parish Council that dog excrement and soiled nappies have been placed in the litter bins in the Lucy Plackett Playing Field. This is a serious health and safety issue for the operatives who empty the bins and all other responsible and considerate users of the field and park. As such, the operatives have been instructed not to empty these litter bins if they find that people have deposited their dogs’ waste and dirty nappies in these bins. Therefore, please could users of the Playing Field ensure that dog waste and soiled nappies are not disposed of in the litter bins. Dog waste should be disposed of in an appropriate bag in the dog waste bins and soiled nappies should be disposed of in a bag at home. Theresa Goss 39
