25 Years Ago

In Issue No. 90 for November 1980 Eve Whaley reported that at long last the much-needed repairs to the tower of St. Lawrence had started.  Thanks were given to the organisers of the two Harvest Festivals, and the Methodist Church promised to repeat its highly popular evening of music on 78 rpm records.

The Village Hall announced its 1920s Evening, with tickets priced at 2.50 per head.  Angela Emerson thanked those who had supported the Playgroup, and Roy Markham begged for more members for the village Bridge Club.  Bert and Eileen Norton were organising a bonfire, officially for the children, on Guy Fawkes Night, and Gwyn Adams thanked villagers for their support for her collection in aid of Deep Sea Fisherman.

Mary Badger was selling a Goblin Teasmade, and Lorraine and Andrew Beasley their collection of Mr. Men books, whilst William Hale offered to clean cars at 30p a go.  Try getting him to do that now.


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.
