QUEEN'S 90TH BIRTHDAY On 4 June Adderbury celebrated the Queen's 90th Birthday. It was not intended to be a fund raising day, however, a raffle was held by the Coach & Horses which raised £190, and further to this we received donations of £194.01 making a grand total of £384.01. The committee was delighted to be able to give this to the Katharine House Hospice. Thank you again to everyone who supported this wonderful village event. Val Scarff

FAIRTRADE CHRISTMAS BAZAAR Having facilitated a Fairtrade sale in my home for the past 25 years, I am making some changes this year which I hope will not deter you from coming and buying your Christmas cards and presents. This year it will be held, for one day only, in Church House. It will take place on Wednesday 2 November from 10.00 am until 6.30 pm. You will be able to purchase refreshments during the day and browse at your leisure, in the warm and away from the crowds in the town. I do hope you will come and make it the success it has always been in past years. It is also very reassuring to know that all those involved in making the goods you buy, have received a fair wage for their work, giving them security and independence for their future and that of their family. Enid Frost

All are invited. Rev. S. Fletcher/Jean Moore

PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY

At the September meeting, member Andreas Klatt, ARPS gave a presentation on two of his recent travels: to Sri Lanka in 2015, and, earlier this year, to India. Andreas is also the Chairman of the Royal Photographic Society‟s Rollright Visual Arts Group, so members were anticipating an evening of some very interesting photographs, and they were not disappointed. Starting with Sri Lanka, Andreas took his audience to the World Heritage Site of Anuradhapura, the sacred city that has lain untouched in the jungle since it was abandoned in 993, before visiting the rock fortress in the jungle at Sigiriya, the gardens of Polonnruwa, and the monastic caves at Dumbulla. This was followed by a visit to the National Wildlife Park at Horton Plains before concluding in the bustling energy of Columbo. The itinerary for India embraced the 17 century hilltop Amber Fort near Jaipur, the 12 century desert citadel (Golden Fort) in the centre of the Thar desert at Jaisalmer, the fortified city of Nagaur and temple complex near Udaipur, before finishing in the cities of old and new Delhi. Throughout his presentation, Andreas showed a fascinating selection of photographs, including temple architecture and carvings, wildlife, native fauna, some stunning sunsets, and many portraits of individuals and street life - for which this part of the world is so well known. Overall, it was a most interesting and absorbing photographic insight into the sub-continent, which was much appreciated by his audience. The Society‟s next Club Night is on 5 October, when professional photographers Peter and Margaret Preece will give a presentation on „Wildlife and nature photographs.‟ Two workshops are also planned, both of which will be led by member Simon Lutter. The first is on 19 October, when the subject is „Correct exposure,‟ the second on 16 November discusses „Camera controls, light sensitivity and white balance.‟ All meetings start at 7.30 pm, and are held in the Cartwright Hotel, Aynho. Everyone is most welcome to attend, just come along and meet us all. John Branton, www.addphoto.co.uk

NORTHERN ADVENTURE - INTO THE ARCTIC WINTER Northern adventure - into the Arctic winter is the title of Val Trinder‟s next picture show which will be on Friday 14 October in the Methodist Chapel Hall in at 7.30 pm. There will be light refreshments afterwards, and any donations will go to WaterAid. Come and see some spectacular views of dramatic mountains, wild vistas, and the northern lights; there‟s even a Husky ride! Val‟s cards and her 2017 calendar “Landscapes of Britain” will also be on sale. Thanks. Val Trinder

WI

Members met in August for games in the garden at Holly House where we enjoyed pitting our wits against a whole series of games. We played skittles, croquet, Jenga, and Boule on a most accommodating garden lawn during a lovely summer evening, sharing a delicious bring and share supper and a glass of wine. We met on 1 September for our autumn season of members meetings, and after a full and well-timed business section plus our welcome refreshment interval, we were royally entertained by the ladies of Sharp and Blunt. Fortunately, the evening light allowed several dances outside, making the most of the late evening sun. Inside they sang a Morris song, to a well-known loved tune, to which many members found themselves singing along with. And then we were given a brief history of Morris dancing, the work of Cecil Sharp and Janet Blunt, plus the legend of Sharp and Blunt themselves. The following Monday afternoon members were finally able to do the Hornton/Horley walk and so enjoyable was the route taken that a return event will be held as soon as possible. Our book group meets in September, and new activities and speakers are being sought for our continuing programme for 2017. Our next meeting on Thursday, 6 October will host Chris Bazeley on The Private Life of the Privy. 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 are to be found on our website – www.adderburywi.co.uk – or by email – adderburywi@gmail.com or find us on Facebook via their search engine for Adderbury & District WI to see our page. Margaret Halstead EVERGREENS On 10 August we went on a trip to Stratford-on-Avon. It was a beautiful day of endless sunshine. We had lunch and ice creams by the river watching the many different boats and the swans enjoying the summer day. On 24 August we welcomed Adderbury Ukes to our meeting. They brought their song books with them, so some rousing music and singing was enjoyed by all especially the George Formby songs. We would welcome visitors who would like to come to our meetings if only to see what we are about. You would certainly get a cup of tea and biscuits. Dot Hardy, Chairman and Rhoda Woodward

FOSMA Firstly thank you to everyone who supported Jazz in the Garden recently in the lovely surroundings of The Old Mill House, Mill Lane. Thank you so much to Karen and Tim Bestwick for allowing us to share their garden and also to Dickie White and Friends for entertaining us with their relaxing jazz! The afternoon raised £1441 for FOSMA which was fantastic. We‟ve had a bit of a break over the summer and have now come back in October with our AGM on Wednesday 12 October in Church House at 7.30 pm. Please do come – it‟s always good to have your views on what we‟re doing. On Sunday 16 October we are very fortunate to welcome Christian Forshaw and the Sanctuary Ensemble to St Mary‟s for a concert. We do hope you will come and enjoy their beautiful music. We haven‟t yet printed tickets, but if you would like to reserve a place, please contact me via email at trish.fennell@btconnect.com or 01295 811059; Jeanette Barnes on 01295 810459/nettiejbarnes@gmail.com, or you can also get tickets on www.wegottickets.com/events/369403. £12 (plus booking fee). As you can see we‟re getting ourselves up to date with our marketing!! On 10 December we have the Christ Church Cathedral Choir returning for a Christmas concert so that is something to look forward to, and I‟ll let you have more details as and when we have them. I‟m delighted to say that the Fabric Committee has highlighted the second south window as being in need of refurbishment and subject to a faculty for the work being obtained FOSMA has agreed to fund the project. The cost is likely to be in the region of £10,000, but that is to be confirmed. So – plenty to be going on with. I hope you‟ve enjoyed the summer. A huge thank you as always for continuing to support us – we really do appreciate it. Our Christmas cards for 2016 have arrived and are available from any of the committee and by the time you read this our new website will be up and running. Do have a look at it: www.fosmaadderbury.weebly.com

ADDERBURY BELLRINGERS The bellringers at St Maryâ€&#x;s Church have continued the series of ringing to mark the centenaries of the deaths of individual servicemen who died during World War 1 and are listed on the war memorial in the church (30 in total). For each, a half muffled quarter peal (a set piece of ringing lasting around 45 minutes) is being rung, normally 100 years to the day since the recorded deaths. We hope this makes a poignant statement and helps people to reflect on the great sacrifice each of these people gave. Since the previous edition of Contact, the following have been rung: Wednesday 29 June: 1260 Plain Bob Triples to mark the centenary of the death of Pvt Caleb Arthur Wyatt (aged 26). Sunday 31 July: 1260 Plain Bob Doubles to mark the centenary of the death of Sgt Percy Moreby (aged 23). Sunday 14 August: 1320 Plain Bob Doubles to mark the centenary of the death of Pvt Edwin Bonner (aged 20) – the above all belonging to the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry. Friday 9 September: 1260 Plain Bob Doubles to mark the centenary of the death of Pvt Frank Cottrell (aged 31, of nd 622 Motor Transport Company, Army Service Coprs).

The next of those listed on the memorial to die were Lt Col Charles Fishbourne and Pvt Percy Pargeter who died on 6 and 7 October 1916 respectively. We will, therefore, be aiming to mark the centenaries of each of their deaths in the same way on Thursday 6 and Friday 7 October, so listen out for the haunting sound of the half-muffled bells on those days. We will remember them. If you would like to find out more about what we do, or would be interested in learning to ring, we would love to hear from you: contact Tower Captain Colin Lee (07876 573967) or Christopher Holmes (01295 810308), or join us at our regular practice sessions any Tuesday evening between 7.30 pm and 9.00 pm.

FORTHCOMING FUND RAISING EVENTS BRUCE DUNCAN A FOCAL MEET THE AUTHOR EVENT Reviews

“Duncan gives a gripping, harrowing account of the weeks he and his family were forced to spend in hiding in Kuwait, following Iraq‟s invasion in August 1990. He covers both his professional duties of team leadership and his natural concerns for his family‟s safety under ever increasing difficulty. These often irreconcilable responsibilities and the tragic death of their eldest son Alex on his way to release are most vividly and movingly described. While such traumatic events brought lasting pain and sorrow to Duncan and all his family, they show great fortitude and an admirably firm belief in their future.”

– The Lord Craig of Radley (Chief of the Defence Staff at the time of Iraq‟s invasion of Kuwait and the ensuing Gulf War)

“This book summarises the adventures of a British Army family who served in eight different countries outside the United Kingdom. Bruce Duncan helped to advise and train foreign armies in six nations covering the British withdrawal from its military commitments to the Commonwealth to the days when he and his family were overrun during Iraq‟s invasion of Kuwait in 1990. It is a story of courage, adventure and then tragedy when they lost their 19-year old son during the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait. A unique career and a must read.” – Gen Sir Peter de la Billière (Commander in Chief of British Forces during the 1990 Gulf War)

“A powerful, heart-rending story of courage, family, determination, tragedy and the inspiring power of the human spirit to overcome the worst adversity.” – Piers Morgan

ADDERBURY NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN What happens next? Thanks to every household which has completed the questionnaire on Adderbury’s future leisure facilities. The results are now being analysed, and will be used to draft a new leisure policy which reflects your views. The revised ANP as a whole will then be submitted to the village for a six weeks consultation in November. After this period of consultation, feedback will be reviewed, and changes will be made to the final version of the plan, which will then be submitted to inspectors next January. Once approved by an inspector our Neighbourhood Plan will become part of the CDC Development Plan, and all development applications within the Parish of Adderbury will be assessed against its policies. But not before it has been formally agreed by the village in an official referendum! Nick Fennell

CINE CLUB On 14 October we will be holding our AGM at 6.45 pm. Following this we will be showing Suffragette (2015, dir. Sarah Gavron, starring Carey Mulligan, Anne-Marie Duff and Helena Bonham Carter, certificate 12A). “A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. … Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller; it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.

ADDERBURY CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL Dates Confirmed for 2, 3, 4 December 2016 at St Mary’s Church Following on from last year‟s spectacular, sparkling Christmas Tree Festival, we are delighted to be able to confirm the dates for this year‟s Festival (2, 3, 4 December), which brings the village together and visitors from further afield. As well as soaking up the festive atmosphere, visitors to the Festival will get to enjoy live music and refreshments. Entrance is free but donations are encouraged. The success of the Festival depends on the support of local organisations, schools, and businesses who kindly sponsor the purchase of a tree and then decorate it as creatively as the fancy takes them, and after the Festival, take the tree away and plant it outside. All proceeds from the Festival this year will be going towards the work of St Mary‟s Church, and the Childrens' Society, which runs local projects to help children and young people when they are at their most vulnerable, and have nowhere left to turn. For further details please contact Emily Reed - 01295 811 740 or email adderburychurch@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you! Emily Reed, Adderbury Christmas Tree Festival Committee

THE ANNUAL GARDEN PARTY Despite the most awful weather on the morning of 10 September the annual Garden Party took place in the garden of Sir Martin and Lady Jacomb. The afternoon improved a little, and everyone rallied round with great enthusiasm to defy the rain and get on with it. A marvellous band of helpers set up the wonderful stalls, delicious teas were served, the Morris Ladies danced away, and our village supporters did not let us down by coming and enjoying it all. The afternoon raised a fantastic ÂŁ1,158 which will go to St. Mary's Church. Many, many thanks to everyone involved for all your hard work and to all those who came along and supported us.

Daylight turned to night, the sky opened and the rain poured down. That did not deter the villagers who came to see the Gardening Clubâ€&#x;s annual show. Many bought raffle tickets, and lots drank the tea and ate the scrumptious cakes. Your support is appreciated. Many people helped, so my thanks to the following: Sue, David, Barbara, Malcolm, Mike, Val, and Veronica for their efforts and enthusiasm. Thanks also to the exhibitors for their skills, the judges for their time and expertise, and those who came to view what was on offer. Hopefully some may have a go themselves next year. The judges commented that the quality of the exhibits was very high, and that we had a better showing than many of the surrounding villages. This year we had 23 adult entries producing 177 exhibits. There were still only three exhibitors in the flower arranging classes which is disappointing given that all of our places of worship are regally decorated every Sunday. Domestic classes fared better and the quality was extremely high. Let us see if we can't improve on the entries next year. The Junior Section this year was, as in recent years, full of colour. Well done Adderbury Rainbows and their leaders Liz and Sandra. Seventeen Rainbows (young ladies aged between five and seven) entered and produced 74 exhibits. Georgia Mepham and Isobella Russell added to the mix. Georgia Mepham won the Junior Cup, and Emily Handley won the Rainbows trophy. Come on you youngsters, have a go, it will give you something to do in the last weeks of the summer holidays. Our Chairman, David White, welcomed everyone to the show and invited Diane Bratt to present the Parish Council's Millennium Cup for the best allotment to "The Mansells." They have won the cup for the past three years. He then introduced Nick Allen who then, assisted by the Show Secretary, presented the prizes. He was thanked by David and was warmly applauded. The Chairman then spoke of the work done by Rod Roberts, the Show Secretary, who had now organised and run thirty-one consecutive shows. The raffle then took place after which the Show Secretary thanked all for attending saying that it was a lot of work and effort but, as the village always turned out to support the Club, it was worthwhile. continued on page 36

There were a few new exhibitors this year, and some of them won trophies. Those who participate say they enjoy it, so help us keep it going, put Saturday 26 August 2017 in your diary, pick up a schedule when they come out in April, and give it a try next year. Please!!!!!!

PARISH COUNCIL The Parish Council met on 13 September in Church House. There were apologies from Councillors Bradley and Griffiths and Clerk Theresa Goss. MATTERS ARISING: Councillors Bratt and Asbury had met at the Friends Meeting House to look at the repairs and proposed works to be carried out. More discussion was needed. The Three Spires Challenge will be held on 9 July 2017. OPEN FORUM: Matters raised included a request from a resident for further details regarding a letter that had been sent to CDC planning department. He stated that he would like to see the PC work more as a team without as much rancour. A series of questions were asked challenging the process of the imminent online Neighbourhood Plan questionnaire. The Chairman commented that the NP team were following the advice of the professional consultant and assured him that the questionnaire would be honourably and properly seen through to its conclusion. DISTRICT COUNCILLOR: It was agreed that the PC would give a vote of thanks to Nigel Randall for all his work on behalf of Adderbury and the wider community. PLAY EQUIPMENT: Councillor Jelfs reported on the progress with the play equipment project and circulated some information regarding some possible pieces of equipment suitable for use by older children. PLANNING: No observations had been made by the PC in respect of the following planning application/works to trees: Humphris Ltd – Le Hall Place, Manor Road 1 Church Close Mrs Allpress – 1 Adderbury Park Mr Peter Dubber – 20 Rawlins Close, Twyford. NOTICE BOARDS: It was resolved that Dave Chandler be authorised to carry out the refurbishment of notice boards at Horn Hill Road by the Oak Tree and possibly the Institute. NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN: Nick Fennell gave the following report. “The „ANP Steering Group‟ has been working hard over the summer. Guided by the objectives of TAP we have now produced a set of draft policies. Due to new opportunities we require further input from the community on their views on future leisure facilities. An online questionnaire will be available on Adderbury.org from 14 September until 30 September. Two public consultation meetings will also be held to present the opportunities, discuss the options and provide information on the other policies in the plan. The two meetings are tomorrow evening at 7pm, in the Institute and Saturday morning at 10am the School. The meetings will emphasise the point that, on the recommendation of our consultant, the ANP will focus exclusively on development policies – and that issues around traffic, education, and other matters will be taken up in a new Parish Plan in 2017. Following the questionnaire new policies will be drafted on leisure facilities and a presubmission version of the plan will be submitted to the Parish Council for approval on 25 October. Subject to this approval the ANP will then go out to public consultation for 6 weeks. We urge everyone to have their say by coming along to one of the meetings and filling in the online questionnaire at Adderbury.org.” continued on page 41

PARISH COUNCIL SURGERIES: Concern had been voiced at the speed of traffic in Manor Road. PLAY AREAS: Councillor Cox would inspect the play area at The Rise. There were no issues at the Lucy Plackett field, and Playdale would be asked if it would be possible to refurbish the main climbing frame and at what cost. Councillor Bratt reported that the Lakes were currently closed to allow for pathway maintenance to be carried out. Information regarding the reopening of the Lakes would be posted on the website. LIBRARY: Councillor Lyons reported that John Prentice had been appointed the new Membership Secretary of FOCAL, and he would also update their website. The reading challenge had been a success with between 140 and 150 taking part. More readers from other areas were using the library as Neithrop library was closed for 3 months for refurbishment. The school was using the library on Thursday mornings as the mobile van had stopped visiting the school. The Science Day had been a success, and 20 new books had been given to the library in thanks for holding the event. The FOCAL AGM would be held on 27 September at 7.30 pm in the Library. TRAFFIC CALMING: It was agreed that discussion would take place with OCC as to the feasibility of closing off one side of the triangle at the oak tree in Horn Hill Road. This would be for a trial period to monitor the impact of traffic travelling through the village. th NEXT MEETING: 25 October 2016 7.30 p.m. Church House. Trish Fennell

DEDDINGTON CRICKET CLUB - GROUNDSMAN The Club is looking for someone interested in the role of groundsman to maintain the excellent condition of our cricket square at the Windmill Centre, Deddington. The position is ideally suited to someone with a love of cricket and the Deddington community, and in gardening or lawn maintenance, and who has the ability to co-ordinate the work required on the square in both the off-season and over the summer months when matches are being played. Previous experience, while ideal, is not essential. What is more important is an interest in and commitment to the role. The Club is willing to provide and fund any necessary training, as well as having all equipment and materials necessary for pitch preparation and maintenance. With pitch preparation it is a case of little and often, so proximity to the ground and flexibility in terms of when and how much time you are able to commit to the job is important. You will be supported by the Club committee and members with the necessary tasks, but you would be the person in charge, so good communication and organisational skills are necessary. Depending on experience and level of time commitment you are willing to give to the role, the Club would consider appropriate recompense if required. Anyone interested should contact Simon Oldfield on 07771 997358, 01295 812305 or simon.oldfield0@gmail.com. Jill Cheeseman
