25 Years Ago

Issue No. 77 for October 1979 was the first to include a brief report of a meeting of the Parish Council.  Brief was the operative word the report has expanded considerably since those days.  Unfortunately this issue does not carry one at all, as the September 2004 meeting had to be cancelled at very short notice.

The Church announced its second Harvest Supper of the year, the first one having been held in April.  Ann Hale made a plea for supplies of eggs, butter and tomatoes, and asked for no beetroot or pickled cabbage to be offered as the messy eaters of Oxhill spilled it and stained the tablecloths.

A Coffee Morning was announced to raise funds for the Children's Christmas Party and another one later in the month for the International Year of the Child.  Meanwhile an earlier Coffee Evening had raised 18 for Village Hall funds, and another Coffee Morning 28.50 for the Ladies Circle.  Oxhill must have been awash with coffee.

The Village Hall Committee announced its Old Time Evening for later in the month, and the Play Group reported on its opening weeks.  The Youth Club had held a Gymkhana and was about to start on both its football and netball seasons.

Bill and Janet Gardner were welcomed to Oddcot and the Stirmans to The Laurels.  Gwyn Adams warned the village that she was about to descend on them collecting for the deep-sea fishermen, and superior grade exceptionally well-reared collie puppies were offered for sale by Jean Evans.
