’11am Village Service next Sunday 23 July will not be taking place here at St Ethelrdedas; rather all Horley parishioners are cordially invited to join with Hornton for an 11am village service at Hornton parish church.’
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

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.
