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.

 Milton Road Project update.

We were all very pleased when the planning permission for the building, car parking and highways entrance was granted in June of this year. The CDC councillors were unanimous in supporting the project, with just two abstentions and no objections.

Following this permission sub groups have been formed to work on the Business Plan, grant applications and the new Community building.  Following the Covid 19 crisis, obtaining grant funding has proved more challenging so the team are currently exploring a phased approach for the build, working with the Parish Council’s architect and project manager.

The preparation of the pitch area has progressed well. The grass was sown in September and has now had at least four cuts to encourage the sward to develop. It will take about 18 months until it is ready for playing.   

There is still a lot of work to be done and we are always looking for people to come and help us and if you would like to get involved, please contact us by visiting the WFAC website.

Thank you once again for your continuous support with the exciting project!
