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.

Happy New Year to all our supporters!

We would like to thank all of our supporters for your generosity and continued support throughout 2019.

2020 promises to be another exciting year full of fundraising events and community spirit.

The community building planning application has been lodged with Cherwell District Council (CDC) and can be seen on their planning website, reference no: 19/02796/F. We hope to be able to update you on their decision by April.  Once planning permission has been given, we will begin by applying for large grants to cover the cost of the building work.  This stage can only go forward when enough funds have been committed to the project by grant awarding bodies. You can view the publicity boards, showing the site layout and internal plans of the building, in Adderbury library and on display at our fundraising events.

 We have not forgotten about the Lucy Plackett area and part of our plan is to improve the facilities and this will form part of the final stage of the project.  The WFAC have been considering ideas already put forward and we welcome any input and suggestions from residents. 

Fundraising

We have teamed up with Cherwell Lottery and for £1 a week you could win up to £25,000!  By doing this you will not only be supporting the Milton Road sports and community project but also other very worthwhile local causes.  50% per cent of all tickets sold, go to our cause plus 10% is given back to other local causes, including our sports and community project!  

 

You can also support us by shopping through “easyfundraising”. A great way to support good causes and to do your day to day shopping online. 

 Adderbury Park Football Club are organising a Race Evening on Saturday, 28th March, 7pm at Adderbury Institute. All proceeds will go towards the sports and community project.   For further details please contact James Collier on jamesjacko@hotmail.com for more details. 

We also have the VE Day Celebrations Aunt Agatha Tea Party on 10th May – please get in touch if you would like to reserve a table. Owing to the huge success of the Community Day in 2018 and 2019, we plan to organise another Community Day again this year on Saturday, 19th September although we need volunteers to help us, so if you have some spare time and would like to get involved, we’d love to hear from you. Future fundraising events include, the Autumn Aunt Agatha Tea Party on Sunday, 11th October and the Christmas Aunt Agatha on Sunday, 13th December.

Owing to the success of the Autumn Ball last year, we were able to donate £200 to Katharine House Hospice.  We also donated £200 to Lake House who used our donation to pay for the piper at their recent Burns Night Celebration and The Let’s Play Project who used our donation to help fund their recent drama show case evening.

 If you would like to book tickets for any of the above events or become a member of the Working for Adderbury Community group and receive regular updates please contact us, we would love to hear from you!

Thank you for your continued support.
