Forthcoming Events & News

Coming next…

Monday 7 December - Oxhill Christmas Lunch

We are just days away from one of the highlights of the village year: the Oxhill Christmas lunch. A reminder that the lunch, in the Village Hall, starts at 12.30pm. The event is open to villagers aged 65 or over and their spouses/partners. Served up will be Christmas lunch, mince pies, wine with the meal, followed by festive entertainment.

Call Gaynor Van Dijk on 680349 if you have any last minute queries.

Friday 18 December - Cocktail Night

Cocktail Night is the perfect way to celebrate the Christmas season, with delicious canapés which can be washed down with some bubbly, cocktails or a glass of beer. The Hall will be specially decorated to reflect the season and appropriate mood music will be playing softly in the background for this special posh frocks and black tie (or suits) event.

The price will be £12.50 per head and includes a selection of canapés and two drinks. Additional drinks will be available. The evening will start at 8pm.

Tickets, which should be ordered in advance, from Tricia Harbour on 680676.

Coming in the New Year…

Saturday 23 January – Burns Night

Scotland won’t be at the European Football Championship in 2016 but the Scots know how to get the year off to a great start! Join us for haggis, tatties, neeps and whisky in the Village Hall as we honour Robbie Burns. Gather at 7pm for the 7.30pm start.

Tickets, which cost £15 per person, need to be ordered and paid for in advance as this is always a sell-out. They are available from Tricia Harbour on 680676.

Saturday 30 January – Village Big Breakfast

If you like a cooked breakfast, juices and croissants and would like to start your Saturday in the sociable company of fellow villagers, then our first Village Big Breakfast is just for you.

Breakfast will be served in the Village Hall between 9am and 11am. Come and chat to friends or read your newspaper and magazines. What better way to start the weekend!

To help with catering requirements, please let Jay Roberts on 680030 know you are coming. Full breakfast will be £5 per adults or £3 per children.

Future of your Village Hall

A small group of Village Hall Committee members is looking into the future of the Village Hall. With various options on the table, ranging from carrying on as now with the existing building, to perhaps demolishing the Hall and building a new hall on the site - grant funding permitting - there’s a lot to consider.

The recent temporary closure of the Village Hall to allow for urgent repairs to the roof only serves to bring into focus that the long term future of our village hall does need attention, if we are to safeguard this important community asset.

It’s very much early days in the discussions, but whatever the Committee does eventually recommend, it will be for the whole village to agree on the Hall’s future, as stipulated in the Village Hall’s legal documents following the transfer of the Hall to the village by the former Ministry of Education.

Watch this space for updates in 2016.

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.
