25 Years Ago

The Parish Council had discussed the dangerous state of the footpaths in the village, and the Harvest Festival and Harvest Supper were both reported on.  The former included the plaintive cry that only nine people (including the Rural Dean) had attended the evensong thanksgiving.  By contrast the Family Service earlier in the day had been well attended.

Church Christmas cards were on offer at 7 p each, and Ann Hale was seeking the owner of a yellow and brown striped tea towel.

Bill and Francis Rouse thanked everyone for their patronage over many years, and welcomed Mr & Mrs Day as the new owners of the Post Office.

Una Hill thanked people for their support in raising funds for the children's Christmas party and Angela Emmerson was selling cards and calendars for the Playgroup.

The village hall had held a successful Old Tyme Evening and announced a forthcoming Folk Evening.  It also wanted volunteers for a cleaning rota.

The Peacock announced its customary children's bonfire party, at £2 per family and David Hill reported that the Oxhill Open Golf Championship had been held at Whitnash.  The inaugural Champion was Ken Booth.  Plans to make this an annual event seem to have fallen by the wayside somewhat.


This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
