Children from Wroxton CE Primary School, went Spotacular for BBC Children in Need this week.

Lloyds Bank and BBC Children in Need’s exciting new schools fundraising campaign, The Big Spotacular, is encouraging children and teachers to dress up in spots, sell spotty cakes and goods, and take part in spotty themed challenges, to raise more money than ever before for children who need it most.

To launch Wroxton CE Primary School’s fundraising plans, pupils turned their school spotty. The school also plans to hold further fundraising activities ahead of Appeal Night.

April Guiness, Head teacher at Wroxton CE Primary School said: “We had great fun today turning Wroxton CE Primary School spotty! The pupils are very excited about The Big Lloyds Bank Spotacular and developing spotty fundraising ideas for BBC Children in Need.”

Open Space, Sport and Recreation Review

for Cherwell  

Cherwell District Council is producing an open space, sport and recreation strategy as part of its review of the provision of open space, sport and recreation.


This work, which is a requirement from central government, will guide investment and planning decisions up to 2031. It will help determine future facility needs across the authority, guide the future management and maintenance of sporting facilities and open spaces, and prioritise capital and revenue investment. The methodology will follow the latest national guidance.


The council have appointed specialist planning consultants Nortoft to take forward the project. We are writing now to ask for your help and support. We need your local knowledge to guide us; we need to:-


1.      Understand if there has been any changes to your open spaces and sporting places since the last audit

2.      Know about any local projects and / or proposals (underway or committed too) that would be relevant to our open spaces and sporting places work

3.      Be aware of local sport, leisure and / or recreational activities taking place in your Village Hall(s) / Community Centre(s)


Community feedback by 15th October 2016

In order to better meet the needs and desires of the wider community, we are asking for individuals to complete a short survey on their use of Cherwell’s open spaces and sporting places.


The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete and will be a powerful tool in prioritising future investment for both open spaces and sporting facilities across the district. The survey can be accessed via the following link:



The Harvest Festival service will be at 9.45am on Sunday 2nd October.  There will be Nibbles and Bites afterwards in the Church.

 Donations of fruit, vegetables and produce are welcome, but please deliver to the Church on Saturday for a display to be set up.
