The Fete this year raised just under £2,000, a record for the last five years. We have made a donation to Dogs For Good as our nominated charity, and the money raised will be split between the Cricket Club and the Church Fabric Fund. Thanks to everyone who attended and who helped to make this ever-popular event such a success this year. Special thanks go to Bridget and Forbes Elworthy for hosting the day, all the clubs and societies running games and all the volunteers who help organise and set up the event. Thanks also to Evelyn Phillips for opening the fete once again this year.

I am having to retire from the Poppy Collection and would like to hear from anyone willing to take over. The collection in Chacombe has been taken over by Middleton Cheney and so our area is now only Wardington and Williamscote. If we do not manage to find anyone then our collection will be taken over by Middleton Cheney. I am sure this would be as disappointing to you as it would be for me after 32 years as Local Organiser. I have the order forms for this year’s collection and would be: more than happy to assist with its completion, together with any other help required. It is not a very demanding job, and very rewarding. Please give it
