Hornton Parish Council holds its next meeting this Monday, September 22 at 7.30pm in the pavilion. All members of the public are invited.

18th September 2014 - Time Travel

Local history expert Dr Kate Tiller of Oxford University is travelling to Hornton to talk Chapel and Community: Methodism in 19th Century Oxfordshire at 7.30pm a week today - September 25. Appropriately, the talk will take place in the Methodist Chapel and will have lots of details about how life went on in Hornton the century before last.

The first of eight classes in which you can create your own mosaic starts in the pavilion a week on Monday - September 29.

With her help, you’ll end the course having created a unique piece. You can get more information by ringing Lucy on 07875 226208 or emailing her as lucy (at) lucycookemosaics dot co dot uk

18th September 2014 - Pigeon Post

Horntonians Bob and Jo Langton have a hew houseguest who refuses to go away.

It’s a racing pigeon, who has decided that Bob and Jo’s home, Puzzletree House in Eastgate, is the perfect post upon which to roost.

They’re appealing for anyone in the village to supply them with a net to catch the bird – and any tips on what to do with a racing pigeon when they’ve captured it. Please a them on 01295 670359 or at bobslangton (at) gmail dot com

18th September 2014 - Sponsor A Strider

Last Saturday’s Ride and Stride to raise money for our historic churches was a great success but it’s not too late to sponsor participants.

Half the money raised by village participants goes to the Methodist and Parish Churches, with the remainder to the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust. If you’d like to donate, please contact Julie Stanley on 01295 670507 or at julieharrystan (at) aol dot com

If you pledge money on a regular basis through a covenant – however small – the churches pick up extra money from the taxman. Contact Julie if you’d like to covenant for the Methodist Church and Andrew Overton on 01295 678920 or at aoverton64 (at) gmail dot com for the Parish Church.

18th September 2014 - Don't Be Overdue

The mobile library from Oxfordshire County Council will visit Hornton next Wednesday, September 24. It will be parked on the village green from 10.40am-11.20am.

18th September 2014 - Food For Thought

The next time you’re in a supermarket, pop an extra item in your trolley for a food bank organised to help needy young people by Banbury Young Homelessness Project.

Almost any non-perishable food is welcome, like rice, pasta, tinned goods, cereals, tea bags and instant coffee – plus toiletries.

Sally Tweedsmuir on 01295 670608 has volunteered to be the collecting point for Hornton’s food donations or there’s a box at the back of the Methodist Chapel.

18th September 2014 - Make A Date

The order form for the 2015 Hornton calendar will be dropping through your letter box in the next few days – but without your photos there won’t be one, so now’s the time to take the final pictures.

The organisers have already got loads of great photos for the months of October to June but please keep snapping away for the months of July, August and September.

Any photo qualifies – as long as it’s taken in Hornton. It can be a scene, a person, an abstract image, a flower – you name it. It doesn’t even have to be taken this year - please look at your “back catalogue” - but it does need to reflect the month it illustrates.

All you need to do is to email it to Jan Hall at janandgrahamhall (at) btopenworld dot com

18th September 2014 - Church Services

Katy Lee will lead the 11am service at Hornton Methodist Church this Sunday, September 21. There’s no service in the parish church because there’s a 10.30 Benefice Service at Hanwell.

Don’t forget that you can pop in for coffee, cake and a chat in the Methodist Church every Friday morning from 10.30am to 12.30pm. There is a book, DVD and video swap - and, of course, lots of good gossip! And Thursday Club meets every week after school until 4.30pm in the Methodist Church School Room. All children are welcome.

18th September 2014 - Hornton WWI display due at Banbury Museum, October-November 2014

Our recent WWI centenary display, and its focus on the 10 Hornton soldiers who died, will be reaching a wider audience as of next month: from 15 October to 17 November (inclusive), 12 of our illustrated panels will go on display at Banbury Museum, along with a selection of our local artefacts and exhibits, telling the stories of villagers who endured the terrible hardships, at the Front and at home.

Thanks to an introduction by Bob Langton and some nimble negotiation by Laurie Furneaux, our display will have pride of place in one of the museum's main exhibition halls, complementing other WWI exhibits also due to be on show throughout the Remembrance period. We are the only Banburyshire village to have achieved such recognition.

Entry to the museum is free and it's well worth a visit. (It's closed on Sundays).

So, if you missed our event first time around, you can catch it this time. Or just pop in when you are in town - and take pride in Hornton's history, and the sacrifice of our 10 brave men, being shared with the region.

Oh, and a reminder: the information from our WWI research, plus lots of pictures, are on the Hornton History website.

11th September 2014 - Come On Down

This Monday, September 15, is the big day when you can sign up to play a part in the next Hornton pantomime!

All you have to do is to come down to the pavilion at 6.30pm and chat to producer/director/writer Anne Joyner. Never been in a panto before? Don’t worry, there’s a part for you or - if you don’t want to perform - there’s a host of backstage roles that need to be filled. This year it’s going to be Dick Whittington but with a Hornton twist, of course. And when Anne’s not organising dinner parties, she’s busy penning the next Hornton panto – Oh Yes She Is!

If you can’t make it on Monday, please give Anne a ring on 01296 670337 and she can give you more details.
