Village Hall - Events

Sunday, August 9th: Village Walk and Barbecue

We have organised an easy, circular, fairly flat walk of approximately 5 miles starting and ending at the Village Hall with a sumptuous BBQ to follow.

It is open to everyone in the Village regardless of age and ability.  You can bring your dog along to give them an exercise treat.  Young children are also welcome (but the committee are not volunteering to carry them) but please be aware that a short part of the walk is along a road so some supervision will be necessary.  Needless to say, pushchairs are not appropriate.

With the weather proving to be unpredictable, we’d suggest that you do bring some form of waterproof jacket, and wear suitable clothing like long trousers in case there is the odd thistle.  Strong shoes with some ankle support are always a good idea as is a hat and sun cream just in case the sun does shine.

We will start at 9.30 a.m. from the Village Hall and expect to finish at around 12.30 back at the Village Hall in time for the BBQ.  There will be a refreshment stop at around the halfway mark.  The price for the BBQ is £5 for anyone over the age of 5 and it is possible to just enjoy this element of the day, if walking is not your thing.

Please contact Judy Badger on 688010 for your BBQ Tickets to enable us to cater for the right numbers.

Friday, October 23rd: Bavarian Evening

We are pleased to announce that we are importing a little bit of Munich into Oxhill with our version of the Oktoberfest.  We’ll have German beer and Sausages coupled with Sauerkraut and possibly some black bread – those who over-indulge might be ‘Wurst’ for wear.  (Boom, Boom!)

There is a prize for the best ‘lederhosen’ or example of German national dress but Prince Harry is not expected to attend.

We are hoping to get an Oompah Band but will probably have to settle for playing a CD of German music (if that is not an oxymoron).

Put the date in your diary, practise some useful German phrases and look for more details next month.
