25 Years Ago

The telephone lines in the village were causing even more problems than they are now, and readers were asked to log all calls, incoming and outgoing, to help the Post Office (remember – they used to run the phone system too) sort out the problem.  The Village Fete Committee distributed their profit from the Fete, Dance and Silver Jubilee celebrations, and the Women’s Circle raised money to help repair the Methodist Chapel roof.  The sponsored walk had raised £160, with Pat Caldicott garnering one third of the total on her own.

The Youth Club continued to be highly active, and Wendy Blunt reported on the activities of the Sunday School.  The W.I. had been addressed by Ian Thomas, at that time dressmaker to the Queen, and Mrs. Rodwell asked for volunteers to help at the Town and Country Fair at Stoneleigh.

Finally, there was a plea for a window cleaner to do the rounds of Oxhill.  25 Years on, is there a decent window cleaner doing the rounds of Oxhill?  And if so, would someone please tell me who he is?
