Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust is proud to be part of the national Ride+Stride Day on Saturday 8 September 2018.
Over the last 54 years, Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust has given in grants, several million pounds to churches and chapels of all Christian denominations in Oxfordshire to help maintain them and save roofs, stained glass, wall paintings and much more. Recently we have been supporting the installation of roof alarms for churches who have had, or are vulnerable to, lead thefts and of recent years given substantial grants towards making the buildings more useful to the local community – for example by the installation of kitchens, loos, extra rooms and more.
Please call into St Etheldreda’s for refreshments any time between 10 and 4.

Victoria Prentis, Member of Parliament for North Oxfordshire, is encouraging her constituents to take part in her campaign, #Banbury2JR, collecting information on journey times to the John Radcliffe Hospital (JR) in Oxford.
In encouraging constituents to take part in the campaign, Victoria commented: “Following the downgrade of the Horton maternity unit, I remain extremely concerned about travel times to the John Radcliffe. The journey can be so unpredictable and parking times must be taken into account. These variables need to be considered ahead of the consultation on NHS services in Oxfordshire. It would be brilliant if as many people as possible get involved in the campaign to give us a good indication of true journey times from Banbury.”
If you are travelling to the JR from the Banbury area, please fill out this survey

Oh come, oh come…
and join in with our annual village carol singing in support of the Children’s Society.
The plan is to meet at the Old School at 6pm, sing carols around as much of the village as we can, with a stop at the Red Lion on the way and enjoying the generous hospitality of many of our villagers.
Supported by Horley Christmas Community Choir this promises to be a great evening, raising money for children who aren’t as lucky as ours and helping us to get even more into the spirit of Christmas.
