QUEEN'S 90TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS On behalf of the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations committee I want to thank the people of Adderbury for coming out and giving us such fantastic support on Saturday 4 June. It was a wonderful day of events and activities, bringing the whole village together and for everyone to enjoy themselves. There are so many people who helped to make the day so special, this includes staff of the Coach & Horses and tea party waiters/waitresses, the clubs & societies, the Morris teams, Christopher Rawlins School, road and parking stewards and the land owners who kindly provided parking, wonderful cup cake and birthday bakers, musicians and bands, JW haulage, the classic car exhibitors, Trade Secret, our Town Crier, the coffee and food stalls and the market stallholders. The list is endless and we truly hope we haven’t missed anyone, thank you to you all! BUT one couple though need very special thanks and that is Tony Watts and his wife Shanie (landlord & landlady of the Coach & Horses) who have worked tirelessly from the word go, and their finale to this was providing 2 marvellous tea parties for 100 children and 100 seniors - what a feat! Without the Parish Council's support it would not have been possible to go ahead and their help has been invaluable and also Cherwell District Council who gave us a grant towards the non-food costs. Last but not least to my fantastic committee who have worked so hard to get everything organised a very special thank you and they are:- Gill Hunt, Tony Watts, Liz Calvert, David Griffiths, Debby Dickinson, Karen Reynolds, Diane Danton, Trish Fennell and treasurer Nick Fennell A day to Remember! Val Scarff, Chairman Queen's 90th Birthday Celebrations

ADDERBURY HISTORY ASSOCIATION MAY MEETING 2016 This month we were pleased to welcome back one of our favourite speakers Martin Way with his presentation of ‘For to get to the other side.’ This was about the Radcot river crossing where, in fact, there are three bridges all within a short distance of each other. The Radcot bridge, erected in about 1220, carries the Faringdon to Bampton road over the Thames, the canal bridge spans the cut dug to form a Severn Thames link and a modern replacement for a medieval bridge crosses the nearby Pidnell stream. In his opening remarks Martin stressed the importance of intersecting routes like river crossings for trade, defence and settlement. In these contexts he outlined events around Radcot over the years since the original ford was abandoned. Archaeological finds suggest Roman, Saxon and even Neolithic occupation. The wool trade was carried on by both land and water. A Norman stronghold was discovered by a Time Team dig. The battles of Radcot bridge took place in 1387 and 1645. There is evidence of boats carrying stone for the rebuilding of London in 1672 after the Great Fire. The Pidnell became a Toll Bridge on the Turnpike Road in 1771 and in WWII a block house was built near Radcot Bridge. The talk was a bit more subdued than we have come to expect from Martin but nonetheless enjoyable. His background is in education and at times it felt like we were back in the classroom, albeit with a well prepared and witty teacher. However, there were enough amusing anecdotes and quips to hold our attention and he had brought along maps, coins and civil war weaponry. He also recommended the area for its historical interest especially Great Coxwell Barn, a National Trust property near Faringdon. ___________________________________ Jean Davis

100 YEARS SINCE THE BATTLE OF JUTLAND My father Edwin Neal, late of Green Farm, was in the Battle of Jutland on HMS Pembroke. Sadly his medals were stolen in 1987. Recently they were sold at Wilmslow and are now in Australia. I hope to get them back for the family. _____________________________________ Anne Neal

HOME LIBRARY SERVICE Your county council has launched a new campaign appealing for home library service volunteers to support their local library and less able people in their area by choosing and delivering books to those who cannot get to a library. Who benefits? Anyone who cannot get to a library, including the elderly and many disabled people across Oxfordshire who need a volunteer to bring the library to their door. They need a friendly face who can stop by once every three weeks to bring them some new books or CDs and stop for a little chat to share their own stories. Is the home library service really so important? Yes - the home library service brings entertainment, pleasure and human contact to people, where they may otherwise have none. Could you spare a little time? Schedules can work around you and you can organise the drop off times directly with the people you deliver to, meaning you can fit it around your busy life. Expenses are reimbursed and you can do as many or as few journeys as you wish. Visit or contact your local library to find out about volunteering for the home library service and helping people near you. 15 15

A JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY THROUGH THE GOSPEL OF MARK Several years ago Rev Richard Ferguson, from Northumberland, spent nine months writing his own personal translation of the entire Gospel of St Mark from the original Greek, and last year published the mammoth work as a 190-page book called "Rocks and Breakers". Deddington Deanery was given a unique opportunity to hear this version of Mark's Gospel, recited in St Mary's Church, Adderbury, in its entirety and therefore hearing the words of the Gospel in much the same way as those in the early Church audiences would have heard it. Display boards were set up all around the church, giving helpful teaching on the text of the Gospel for all to read. Hearing the Gospel from start to finish is very unusual these days. We pick passages out for worship, but rarely hear it as a whole story. This enabled us to really share in the shock ending - we all sat in silence for some minutes as we experienced some of the fear the women at the tomb must have felt, when they discovered Jesus was not there! It left us with the important question of who we think Jesus is and where is he now. Over Saturday and Sunday we shared a lively discussion on the recital and a comparison of Mark to Matthew, Luke and John. Differing so greatly and owed mostly to the difference in the audiences they were prepared for. Also a family picnic and another rendition of Jesus calming the storm for those who missed the first one. On Sunday it drew to a conclusion with a sermon from Rev Ferguson bringing all the thoughts together and again leaving us with the decision we all have to make for ourselves. Do we believe the words of people who lived alongside Jesus? Do we think he is the Christ? Do we want to follow his teaching? Are we prepared to change our ways in order to be more like him? A collaborative work, handwritten and artistically illuminated, was produced by various Adderbury village groups. This will be a beautiful reminder of this weekend and will eventually be bound and on display for viewing. Enid Frost ——————————————————————-

FETE SUCCESS! On Saturday the village came out in full force and high spirits for the 2016 Adderbury Village Fete, in support of Christopher Rawlins Primary School and St Mary’s Church. The dry afternoon attracted hundreds of visitors to the Lucy Plackett Field to have a brilliant afternoon. There was wonderful entertainment from the Ladies Morris Dancing Team, Kaleidoscope Dancers and Deddington Football Club. The children enjoyed games, face painting, the bouncy castles, a Pop Up Royalthemed Photo Studio, a ninja warrior obstacle course and a wonderful balloon launch to our national anthem. The annual Dog Show drew crowds to watch all the canine competitors and was a great attraction on the field. The Teas & Cakes and the Bar & BBQ tents were popular fixtures throughout the afternoon and both were sell-outs! We are very grateful to our main sponsor Hamptons International, as well as David Wilson Homes, JDP Solutions, High Fliers, Holmes & Holmes Removals, Sequel Design, MSV Narrowboat services and Oxford Veterinary Physiotherapy. Big thanks also go to the Parish Council for the use of the Lucy Plackett Field, the Lucy Plackett Centre committee for use of the centre, ARC for the gazebos, Radio Horton and St John’s Ambulance. The day is such an amazing village day with everyone in the community coming together (the church, the school, the WI, the morris dancers, the Brownies, Kaleidoscope and Deddington Football Club) and makes us realise how lucky we are to live in such a fantastic village. Thank you to all the amazingly brilliant volunteers, the generous donations and to everyone for coming along with friends and family and having fun!

RECORD BREAKING SEASON FOR ADDERBURY PARK FC It has been a year to remember for Adderbury Park FC as both teams had hugely successful seasons. The 1st Team won the prestigious Oxfordshire Charity Cup recording a memorable 2-1 victory over league champions and cup holders Oxford University Press. Adderbury resident and team Captain Luke Jones lifted the trophy for the first time in the club’s history. They also secured another first for the club, as they won the league’s main cup. They battled hard to a 3-2 victory over Garsington to secure the President’s Cup, a victory that made it a fantastic cup double. Adderbury’s Reserves won the Oxfordshire Senior League Division 2 title in emphatic fashion, winning all 18 of their fixtures and scoring 61 goals along the way. They also secured the league cup with a 6-3 Extratime victory over Cropredy Reserves. In all the team only lost one game all season, in the Intermediate Cup to a Hellenic League Reserve side. The season has vastly increased the profile and exposure of Adderbury as a whole, with the club’s website even making the top 200 in the UK at one stage and regularly in the top 500, a great feat for a village club. The club have made huge strides in what has been a hugely memorable season and would like to thank the village for their support over the course of the season and hope it will continue.

ADDERBURY GUIDES The Guides have been involved in a variety of activities this term. We’ve been swimming at Spiceball (lots of splashing and racing). The Guides’ own planned activities allowed them to rock it as fashionistas (or, perhaps not if we’re to go by one hairstyling incident) while others have become animal experts. We’ve also had cooking extravaganzas (pancakes and camp doughnuts, which are jam sandwiches fried and coated in way more sugar than necessary for any human being), drama (making their own modern, physical theatre style film on bullying) and loads more. Special mention to Helena who has been totally amazing. The talent show she organised genuinely showed our Guides’ outstanding skill set, and her international games of Nepalese-style off-the-floor ‘It’ and flag bingo were met with adrenaline, competitiveness and lots of laughter. The trips out recently have been so much fun. To get ready for our camp (which, can I add, I am ridiculously excited about), we’ve had a camp skills day in Mary’s garden. We put up tents, had a sausage sizzle and then did a treasure hunt around the village (highlights of which included the ‘longest sticky weed chain’ competition transforming into ‘highest summit of Mount Sticky Weed’ and the finale of pooh sticks at the bridge). Another utterly awesome experience was a Science Day at Oxford University, where the girls got to use the real facilities of one of the top science centres in the country. Favourite activities were making Goo, learning to programme with the help of a turtle (as is common practice amongst programmers, obviously) and the games about screening for disease epidemics (which seems a bit paradoxical to me).

Our May meeting at Church House on NFWI Resolution matters gave vent to excellent discussions with contributions from all members, followed by guest speaker Maggie Rampley, the Matron of Wardington House, with her presentation on Dementia and the challenges of looking after people with this condition in specialist provision such as Wardington House. We met in June to hear guest speaker Vic Ince of Upton House for his brilliant presentation and a future visit to Upton House is much anticipated. We were present at Adderbury Village Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations, our stall featuring a hamper raffle prize, treasure map and sweet competition plus WI promotional material. Our next event focusses on the School and Church Fete with our wrapped and filled jam jars after which we will be at Party in the Park with cakes and preserves. Our Grow Wild Seed garden featured in Katharine House Open Gardens Day, attracting many visitors for its bright pink campion flowers and visiting bees plus a huge frog who made a sudden and dramatic appearance. We meet on Thursday 7 July at The Institute with guest speaker Shelley Edwards of Trading Standards for Scams and Doorstep Crime.

———————————————————— ADDERBURY EVERGREENS We thank Alan Walker for his enjoyable very interesting talk on his family of Vets both past and present. The first outing on the 25 May was a Cotswold sight seeing trip with a stop for lunch at Broadway. It was an enjoyable ride through all the lovely villages with beautiful spring flowers everywhere and trees of every shade of green. Our stop in Broadway was very pleasant with many places to eat and some shops for our retail therapy. Many thanks to our visitors who help to keep our trips going. Although the sun did not shine for us it did not deter from the lovely day we all enjoyed. Dot Hardy, Chairman

PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY At last month’s meeting, member Randall Miles ARPS gave a second presentation entitled ‘Tales of future excursions in the wilds,’ in which he explored wildlife and portrait photography at the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya - an area of approximately 600 square miles. Now retired, Randall had responsibility for television lighting and camera work in his previous career and, in a series of prints, he demonstrated his creativity and mastery of various photographic techniques. The presentation comprised three parts. First, he dealt with photographing sunrises, capturing the extraordinary early morning colours on the plains of the Reserve. Then Randall moved on to the difficulties of photographing wild animals from the relative safety of a Land Rover, showing a series of images of lions, wildebeest, elephants, zebras, giraffes, gazelles and impala in their natural habitat. His preference is to enhance the impact of the image by taking portraits of the animals’ heads, with particular emphasis on the eyes, cropping the results to remove any distracting background. Randall then concluded by showing portraits of the Maasai people. In order to put his subject at ease, his normal technique is to photograph from a distance of around 25-30 feet, using a telephoto lens, and again cropping severely to show the face. Randall explained his normal preference is to use ambient light, but photographing dark skin in this way fails to bring out the facial features. It is therefore necessary to use flash in order to highlight the face’s features and give depth to the image. This was one of many tips given in a most interesting and interactive presentation, accompanied by excellent prints, that was much appreciated by his audience. The next meetings of the Society are on 6 July, when professional photographer Dan Evans returns to present ‘Lens lore - using the lens for best creative effect,’ which will be followed on 3 August by a presentation from the Society’s own ‘Team Namibia’ entitled ‘Tropic of Capricorn and beyond.’ Looking further ahead to 7 September, member Andreas Klatt ARPS will be giving an interactive presentation on the subject of ‘Perception.’ There are also two Outdoor Workshops on 20 July and 17 August (see web site for details) and an indoor Workshop on 7 September, led by John Cavana and Dave Govier, on ‘High speed photography photographing water droplets and water crowns.’ All meetings will be held at 7.30 pm in the Cartwright Hotel, Aynho, apart from the two Outdoor Workshops. Everyone is welcome to attend, just come along, you can be assured of a warm welcome. John Branton, 39 39
