On Friday 15th June Wardington Village Cinema will be screening Darkest Hour. During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman).

Proposed new J11 services – AGAIN?!

Apologies for those who have seen this item already - we are re-posting it as the auto-email notifying you of new posts has been offline for a few days. Please do read this very important message. Most residents of Wardington will have received a further letter from Cherwell Council planning department about amendments to the application for a new service station on the A361 at J11 of the M40.
