Welcome to the Working for Adderbury Community Site

We are a group of villagers who are working with Adderbury Parish Council to improve the community and sports facilities in our village. Our two main areas to focus on will be the existing Lucy Placket field and the new Parish Council owned land for sports pitches and a community facility on the Milton Road.

You can find out more about us, the project we are undertaking and how you can get involved on this website.

Work has started!

Working for Adderbury Community are very pleased to announce the Milton Road sports and community project is now underway!  The Parish Council have instructed contractors to begin the field drainage and sowing of the sports pitches and this began at the beginning of May. 

This is under the agreed planning permission for 18/00220/F and follows the discharge of pre-commencement conditions 3, 4 and 5, together with the final agreed revised scheme for the field drainage.

It will take around eighteen months to two years before the pitches will be fit to play on and whilst the pitches are maturing, WFAC and APC will continue to progress the project. 

Adderbury Parish Council have advised that from a health and safety point of view, whilst the work is ongoing, it will not be possible for anyone, other than contractors, to access the field.

Thank you for your co-operation in this respect and apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

We hope you will be as excited as we are that the project is finally underway!
