25 Years Ago

Issue No. 103 carried a whole page on the Meaning of Christmas, by Douglas Jephson, then Rector.  And a jolly good Rector he was too.  Carol singing round the village was planned for the fifteenth, with a wassail bowl at Ann Hale's to start with and coffee afterwards at Gwyn Adams.  Anyone doing carol singing this year?

The Children's Christmas Party was announced for Sunday 20th, with tickets to cost no more than 50p.  Was this the year that snow stopped "The Entertainer" getting through and Geoff Evans put on an impromptu and highly successful conjuring act?

Tickets for the Adults' Christmas Party had all been sold by press day.  Pantomime or Christmas character dress.  I remember freezing as Aladdin.  I also remember Christmas Tree and the powdered glass baubles that covered the Village Hall floor.  And her friend Christmas Cracker who was, reasonably enough, pulled at midnight.  But perhaps that was another year.  Old men forget.

Other items in The News included the Christmas Entertainment for Senior Citizens and news of the sponsored silence undertaken by the Brownies.  Silence by children is always a Good Idea, sponsored or not.  Grumpy Old Man speaking.


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.
