25 Years Ago

Issue No. 89 of the Oxhill News reported that the sponsored bike ride raised over 100, with Rachel Costa the star performer, raising 41 from her own pedal power after persuading no fewer than 63 sponsors to support her.

Ann Hale deeply regretted the absence of a Harvest Supper (there being no available date) and the Parish Clerk asked for volunteers to clear footpaths round the village.  Tree planting was also in the offing.  The Village Hall announced a date for its 20s evening and Vic Walters asked if anyone wanted a Fete in 1981.

The Oxhill Golf Tournament was announced for October 10th, with ladies invited to dinner afterwards.  Presumably the golfers of Oxhill then still went by that old acronym 'Gentlemen Only, Ladies Forbidden'.  Would they get away with it today?
