Village Hall Refurbishment

November 23, 2018

A village meeting to discuss the refurbishment will take place in the hall at 2.00 pm on Sunday 28 April. By then we will have completed the detailed design and will have a detailed cost estimate.  Come along to discuss the proposals and plans for raising the remaining funds required.

Since the March bulletin, we have received some further donations and have identified 18 organisations to whom we will be making applications for grants over the next three months.  Three shows planned over the rest the year have pledged some or all of their profits to the project:

The Blewbury Players’ BBC4 Revue on 5/6 April

Gay O’Nolan’s Ben Waters Gig on 1 June

George Long’s Definitive Ratpack Christmas Show on 29/30 November

Our thanks to all who have already made contributions to the project or have pledged their support. Personal donations can still be made to the Hall Refurbishment Account (details on the village website

The Go Active Gold Community Spirit Award

November 29, 2018

The Go Active Gold Community Spirit Award in The Vale of White Horse was awarded to Blewbury at a recent event and the certificate below presented to the chair of the Parish Council.

Well done Blewbury and the residents who regularly take part. Thanks go to the instructor Jo Cassells, all the other organisers of this very worthwhile scheme, the bulletin and the clubhouse. There are hopes that other sports and courses will become available soon.

Here is a summary of what was said at the event.

Village: Blewbury

More about the Village:

Blewbury Village has been one of our new villages for 2018. We have set up a few activities in the village which have been well attended by residents.

The Nordic walking Event saw a great number of participants take part and enjoyed a scenic walk around the local countryside. The local Blewbury Bulletin has always been accommodating, regularly promoting our sessions and we have had a positive relationship with Blewbury Clubhouse which has enabled us to run our two very successful Chair Yoga and Senior Circuits classes.
