- Our next meeting will be on Monday, June 18th, when Carole Anderson will be presenting “Glove-making in Oxfordshire”. This talk traces the history of a key local industry from its origins in the 13th century, to the 19th century when it employed several thousand people, then covers its decline and eventual death.
- There are still copies available of the Association’s latest publication, In It Together, by Barry Davis. This is a detailed and informative study of how the village has coped with warfare throughout the centuries, giving equal importance to those who went off to fight and those who took important supporting roles at home. An absorbing gift for anyone with an interest in the history of Adderbury. Copies can be obtained either from Adderbury Library or from the Association (see Contact Us above). Price £15, plus £3 postage and packing if applicable.
- The Association’s meetings normally take place in the Adderbury Methodist Church School Room, Chapel Lane, Adderbury, at 7.15 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. New members are always very welcome. The annual subscription is £12.50 and the subscription year begins in January. Visitors are welcome (cost £2.50).
