Hornton’s John Bridgeman will be talking about 600 years of Oxfordshire Yeomanry at The Old School, Horley, Friday 28th April, at 7.30pm. John will cover the period from knights, archers and men-at-arms in France to Winston Churchill's regiment of cavalry that has its archive at the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum at Woodstock.

The children have been practising their Maypole dancing, the Morris dancers have shined up their bells – now Hornton just needs you to make sure May Day this Monday, May 1st, goes with a swing! It all starts at 1pm on Monday, with the crowning of the May King and Queen about 1.30pm, and organiser Lorraine Joyner has arranged a tantalising line-up of May Day stalls and attractions - but she’ll need everyone’s help to make the event really successful. Lorraine still needs helps manning a few stalls and, if you can lend a hand, please call her on 678708 or email her at lj dot joyner (at) btinternet.com. She also needs help sorting out the raffle – if you can help out on the morning. And if you can give Lorraine a raffle prize, you’ll be even more popular! From now, White Elephant items to Carole and Andrew Overton at Trinity Cottage in Church Lane, empty screw-top wine bottles/bottles of wine to Jane and Kevin Wain at The Swallows in Eastgate. Old crockery that can be smashed up should go to Hornton History Group’s Smashing Time stall.

And if you’ve got good quality clothes, Jenny Bowes would be delighted to receive them at the pavilion on Saturday morning. On the Big Day itself, there’s lots to do. Isabelle Harris is running the cake stall and would like cakes to be brought to her on the village green then. And if you can help set up tables, chairs and gazebos for stalls, please come down to the green at 10.30am on Monday morning.

Two enterprising young Hortonians have raised lots of lolly for worthy causes in unusual ways. Sarah Pelzer-Smith endured a cold night sleeping out in Stratford to raise more than £200 for the homeless charity St Basil’s and the Stratford Samaritans. Meanwhile, Connie Joyner decided it was time to cut her beautiful hair. Not only did she raise more than £700 for the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children with cancer and other illnesses which result in hair loss, she also provided eight and a half inches of beautiful thick hair to create more wigs! Well done to both and you can still donate money: Connie had a JustGiving page if you go to the JustGiving homepage and search for haircut Joyner. And you can give money to Sarah’s charities by emailing her at sarah23478 (at) gmail dot com
School administrator Jenny Bowes says the caretaker has been finding dog mess in the grass area of the playground. "Obviously this is an area where the children play and the above presents a health and safety issue," writes Jenny. "Please can we ask that if any dogs do stray in to this area owners double check that they haven’t left any nasty surprises for the children."
There's lots going on in the Hornton History Group this year, from ships in Portsmouth to a big barn dance in the village and a major exhibition focused on village life over the centuries. Here are a few highlights for you to note, act on and mark on your calendar...
Looking back on life in Hornton
We are scheduling this event, entitled The Way We Were, for 8th, 9th and 10th September 2017, so please bear this in mind. The main display will be at Hornton Pavilion – and there will also be a village trail, guided by a walking-tour map, for you to seek out and discover historic places of interest. All ideas and contributions of memories and memorabilia are still very welcome – and thanks to all those villagers, friends and former residents who have provided information and artefacts so far.
Coming up in the next few months
Thursday 30th March, 7.30pm at St John the Baptist Church, Hornton – John Bridgeman unveils the fascinating lives of religious anchorites and anchoresses, a type of religious recluse (an 'extreme hermit') and reveals visual clues to suggest our own church had a resident walled-in zealot back in the early Middle Ages. A £5 entry charge per person, on the door, will cover refreshments in the interval as well as the presentation and a Q&A session. Proceeds will be split between the Church and the History Group.
Bring coats, boots and a torch as we may well be looking round the church for clues, inside and out. We have already attracted interest from regional historians and other specialist groups for this event. Not to be missed!
Trip to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard
All day on Saturday 22nd July (provisional date). Portsmouth is home to some of the most famous and historically important naval ships in the world. It's a six-attraction day (HMS Victory, HMS Warrior, Mary Rose, the National Musuem of the Royal Navy, Action Stations and HMS M.33) plus a harbour boat tour, galleries and exhibitions. Jane Wain is organising a coach pick-up in the village at 8.30am. The total cost will be about £37, with concessions. There will be free time to catch an evening meal before the return journey. The last History day trip to Bristol Docks was a big success, so we're expecting this one to be popular too. Depending on how many History members sign up, there are likely to be some spaces for non-History villagers, so contact Jane if you're interested: tel 670716.
Finally, we have welcomed more new members to the History Group this year. The annual membership fee is just £12, for which you get involved in lots of varied projects and have special access to trips and speaker presentations. For more information, contact Kevin Wain, our chairman: tel 670716.

The history club are hoping to install a First World War memorial – made of Hornton stone – on the village green in November 2018 at a special event to mark Armistice Day. The news was given to parish councillors – who will have to agree to the proposal – at their latest meeting on March 27th. They also heard that several builders have been approached for the pavilion extension and the Pavilion committee hope that the building works would start in the Summer. But Cllr Kevin Wain reported that gravel in the pavilion parking area was a problem in the winter and parking in the car park opposite the Pavilion could also be improved. It was agreed that the Pavilion was now a good venue to promote events that were a good revenue source, such as weddings. Cllr Wain will ask the Pavilion committee to consider future car park improvements. He also reported that the annual Spring Clean had been a well-attended and successful event and the Parish Council thanked all those involved. Special thanks were given to David Jarrett who had cleaned all of the village road signs. Cllr Tim Hewlett reported that the defibrillator training had been another well attended and successful training session with Dick Tracy from the Ambulance service. Cllr Wain is going to ask the school if they would be interested in hosting a paediatric training session in the future. A new “no access” sign, at a cost of £143.46, is going to be erected at the entrance to Hollow Way to stop vehicles trying to drive up it in a vain attempt to get to Hornton Grounds Farm. But Cllr Hewlett reported that progress with other highways issues was patchy. He had contacted various agencies and the police regarding the use of speeding assessment equipment in the village and was currently waiting for a reply from the Thames Valley Constabulary. And whilst some potholes around the village had been filled, other still required work. He had been advised by the county council highways department that the damaged verge opposite the motocross site entrance was not an issue for them and that the event organiser needed to install a larger gate to allow better access for vehicles. If there was no further progress with Highways, Cllr Hewlett will contact the event organiser. Cllr Roger Bellamy reported that several trees had been blown down in the recent storm that had obstructed roads and it was agreed that a survey should be carried out of other trees in the village along road sides to ensure they were safe. The Clerk would contact tree surgeon Ben Acreman. Cllr Paul Burden reported that there may be another 5ft Christmas tree to plant in the Jumpa grounds.
Horntonians Chris and Steve Woodcock introduced nine new hedgehogs to the village. Now the spiky little critters are starting to wander around they are making a plea to make sure we see more of them around this year – and breed. If you had a feeding station in your garden last year, now is the time to rebuild it and stock it with food every day, and you can build a new one this year. Details are on the website of Warwickshire Hedgehog Rescue. Please avoid slug pellets! They are poisonous to hedgehogs and there are lots of alternative ways to keep slugs at bay, not least by encouraging hogs into your garden to eat them! It would also be great if you could keep holes in hedges, fences and under walls that allow them to come and go freely. If they are trapped in too small a space they can get distressed and die. But if you see a hedgehog out in the next few weeks, please keep away as it’s likely to be a nesting female. They are very timid and might harm their young if you get too close. If you have any questions, pleas email Chris at chrisawoodcock (at) btinternet dot com
The mobile library may be no more but did you know that Hornton has a library of its own? It’s in the foyer of the Methodist Chapel and you can pop in any time, borrow as book and return it when you’ve finished. And if you’ve got any interesting books that you’ve finished with, please bring them along! The organisers wish to thank Phil Holt for donating the bookcase.
Hornton parish councillors have given the plans for the extension to the pavilion their approval at their latest meeting. The proposals are being considered by Cherwell District Council at the moment and will give footballers and other users of the sports field decent changing rooms for the first time.
Councillors also gave the thumbs up to BT’s decision not to remove the village phone box after a campaign by them and a number of villagers. Next in the councillors’ sights is the problems Hornton faces with speeding motorists. The meeting decided that Councillor Tim Hewlett should contact the police community support officer about the issue and parish clerk Katherine Mills will try to track down flashing speeding signs which have been used previously by the village.
The meeting also discussed a request from Hornton Primary’s School’s head teacher, Matt Green, who had contacted the Parish Council regarding the possible use of the village allotments for future school development. Cllrs Paul Burden and David Jarrett reported that the possibility of the school being moved to this piece of land has been discussed several years ago, but Oxfordshire County Council had not supported the proposal. The piece of land was now smaller, would have access issues for school traffic and was also the proposed site for the installation of the Western Power substation, the meeting was told. Councillors decided that Cllr Kevin Wain would liaise with the school regarding the query. The council are going to see how much it would cost to put up a sign at the bottom of Hollow Way advising drivers that there is no vehicle access to Hornton Grounds Farm, after a letter from Andrew and Maggie Higgins.
And the clerk will request a quote from mole catchers after Cllr Wain reported that the moles hills on the village green and the playing fields needed to be treated. She also reported that it was within Parish Council powers to provide funding for church clock maintenance. An estimate for the required clock maintenance would be obtained and considered for approval by the Parish Council.

All you have to do is register on the girl guiding website and then call Brown Owl Jennie Tyrrell on 678220 or email her at email@example.com
Maggie Higgins makes a plea to keep all the stamps off your Christmas cards this year – both British and foreign. “They are sold to raise money for Leukaemia Care and Oxfam,” she said. “As Christmas is fast approaching, I thought this would be a good time to start a collection in Hornton, though stamps can be collected throughout the year. “Please take a moment of your time to tear off the used stamp - leaving, if possible, 1cm or so of envelope bordering the stamp. They can then be dropped off at Holloway House next to the green at the bottom of Bell Street."
Hornton's next communal oil delivery is taking place soon. If you'd like to join in and get heating oil at a reduced price, please contact Bob Langton as soon as possible on 670359 or at bobslangton (at) gmail dot com
The Dun Cow slaughtered Granborough’s Shoulder of Mutton in their latest Harbury and District Crib League match. The victory leaves the Hornton cribbers in fourth place with 26 points and just three matches to go. They can still win the league but now they need to rely on their rivals slipping up.
When you write a cheque to the Parish Church in future, please make sure it’s to Hornton PCC Churchwardens, rather than to St John the Baptist Church. Church treasurer Andrew Overton says that their bank is starting to take a hard line if cheques are not made out to the name of the church’s actual account. Apparently, the bank has accounts for several St John the Baptist churches and, if the cheque is not made out correctly, there a danger that the money might go to the wrong one!
Did you know that Hornton's two churches can pick up lots of lovely lolly from the taxman if you give them a nudge in the right direction? If you sign a covenant, promising to give so much – however small – per year, you can Gift Aid the money and the taxman puts an extra amount on top equivalent to the basic rate of income tax. All you have to so is sign a form and get your bank to pay a standing order. Julie Stanley on 670507 has got the forms for the Methodist church and Andrew Overton on 678920 has got the parish church forms. Simple!
Come along to the pavilion at 9.30am pavilion every Tuesday and you can get your day off to a great start with Zumba.

Find out what YOU can do right now. You can also sign an online petition to prevent the closure of oak ward at Banbury Horton general hospital. You can also sign a petition to prevent the closure of the Maternity Unit at Banbury Horton General Hospital.
Is there anyone in the village willing to become the Pavilion Treasurer please? We really need a replacement as a matter of some urgency now. The Pavilion sub-committee is a jolly group of friendly folk and the funds are in good shape having been in very capable hands, so please come and join us and we will give you a warm welcome. I have only been in my role a short time and look forward to our meetings. If you wish to know more please let me know by calling Jo on 670359 or email: joann dot langton2013 (at) gmail dot com
Parish councillor Paul Burden, who is in charge of Hornton’s allotments, has appealed to allotment holders and visitors to be a little more considerate. There have been complaints that some allotment holders have been lighting bonfires when the prevailing wind is blowing towards the village and some dog walkers have been allowing their pets to foul the area. He asked everyone to be considerate.
With the considerable increase in the number and the variety of cons and scams, thieves are adapting their methods to come up with new ways to steal your personal data and other information. On most new credit or debit cards, you will see a wireless symbol which informs you that your card uses Radio Frequency Identification RFID technology. This allows you to simply tap your card on card-readers to make payments of up to £30. However, this comes with security risks, as criminals can create an RFID reader with minimal effort and steal your details. They can also download an app onto their Smartphones to achieve the same results. They only need to brush past your pocket or bag with their device to do this. You might not even notice it happening. You can prevent this happening with the Card Defender. This is a sleeve card holder that provides RFID - blocking technology and it protects contactless cards from being read. A similar device was demonstrated on a recent edition of BBC TV's 'Rip of Britain'. We recommend that everyone carrying a contactless cards should have one or more Card Defenders. This also applies to Oyster cards and students' ID cards. Card Defenders are now available from Thames Valley Neighbourhood Watch Association for just £1.00 each; 5 for £4.00, or 7 for £10.00 plus postage. To order please contact us at: naomi dot arnold33 (at) gmail dot com.
Hornton School head teacher Matt Green is cracking down on parents of pupils who are parking dangerously around the village green. He is worried that parents parking on yellow lines could cause an accident and he’s asked Police Community Support Officers to carry out spot checks. He has also contacted Hornton Parish Council to get no parking signs erected next to the yellow lines to stop people parking there and any parents the school spots parking illegally will have their number plate details passed on to the police. “The safety of your children is our absolute number 1 priority and, in the last couple of weeks, I have noticed that a small group of parents and carers are once again parking on the yellow lines,” he says in a letter to parents. “It’s not just me that thinks this is dangerous.” School staff are being asked to use the car park at the Dun Cow, which Lisa Segens has kindly offered to ease congestion outside the school.
After lots of pressing, the best photographer in Hornton has finally been persuaded to run a photography course. Jan Hall is going to hold six fortnightly sessions showing people how they can get better and more exciting pictures by taking their camera off the auto setting. “The format isn’t set in stone, but I envisage concentrating on one element of photography in each session,” said Jan. “This way you will get a proper understanding of each aspect and how it interacts with the other elements. “You don’t need to have a high-end DSLR camera with loads of lenses, but your camera will have to have some form of manual control over shutter speed and aperture at the very least. If you aren’t sure if your camera is suitable just e-mail me the model details and I will let you know." The six sessions will cost just £30 in total and they are open to people from outside the village. Anyone interested should contact Jan as soon as possible on 670891 or janhall01 (at) outlook dot com

Rural residents face an unwelcome hike in council tax coupled with much reduced services if the government pushes ahead with a proposed funding settlement for rural communities - despite an increase in the Rural Services Delivery Grant.
The Rural Services Network, which represents local councils and other services providers, outlined its massive concerns as the government prepares to decide how much grant funding to allocate local authorities following provisional announcements. Rural local authorities would be very heavily penalised by a proposed shift in grant from shire areas to metropolitan areas, said the Network. Network chief executive Graham Biggs said cash-strapped local rural councils would face the prospect of being forced to increase council tax to a level much more than their urban counterparts - and even then having to undertake swingeing service cuts. Proposed changes to the funding formula had been applied unevenly and at the last minute by the government, and without any forewarning, had the effect of further penalising rural areas, said Mr Biggs. Mr Biggs said: "Yet again, rural areas, which already have higher council tax levels than urban areas and a lower average local income, will be caned to allow urban areas to maintain more government grant." Mr Biggs said council tax was already significantly higher in rural areas compared to urban because of historic underfunding of rural services by successive governments. Yet despite this, the current government was again choosing to favour urban people at the expense of those living in rural areas. Mr Biggs said it was unthinkable that a Government which had indicated understanding of the rural situation was now planning to further increase the gap between rural and urban government funding. "The move beggars belief," said Mr Biggs. "Cuts in grant have been difficult to live with for five years but they have been similar percentage reductions across rural and urban areas. "Now out of nowhere come proposals that will decimate rural services while urban areas get a much lesser level of grant reduction.” Mr Biggs added: "To compound the situation still further, government ministers assume in their figures that rural residents will have to pay even more in council tax than their urban counterparts. "It is astounding." Rural local authorities have called on the government to reconsider its proposals before MPs vote on the final settlement in February. The Rural Services Network agrees with the leader of the County Councils Network and others who say this proposed settlement if enacted can only produce huge cutbacks in services in rural areas.
The Network's full response to the government's proposals can be read here.

Call Lynn on 670673 or email lcorke (at) uwclub dot net and she will collect it from you.
Concerns about speeding motorists through Hornton have led parish councillors to once again review whether new measures can be adopted to tackle the problem. Members were also told that two new electricity sub-stations – in West End and near the bus stop in Millers Lane – will be installed. The children’s playground committee was considering installing some new non-ride play equipment suitable for toddlers and babies. Meanwhile, the Clerk has received a good number of responses from residents interested in attending a second defibrillator training evening. Work is required to save the leaning laburnum in front of 4 Holloway Cottages. True surgeon Ben Acreman has advised the council that the tree’s root system was settled and the tree had high amenity value and was worth conserving. Councillors agreed to have the tree crowned and for two rustic structural timber props to be secured to aid the tree’s stability. Finally, the future of The Gossip village newspaper is secure, with the parish council agreeing to pay half of the running costs and the remainder to comes from the 6p-a-line fund from the proceeds of the Banbury Guardian column.

One of the key challenges Parish Councils face is finding the funding to provide the many services required in your community. The area of physical activity and sport is no different with many communities lacking the facilities or expertise to provide opportunities for people to be physically active, lead healthier lives and enhance community spirit. The health and social benefits of more active and engaged communities are well documented, as are the many issues and problems caused by the inactive and sedentary lifestyles that are more and more prevalent today. Oxfordshire Sport and Physically Activity’s aim is to ensure Oxfordshire is the most physically active county in the country and we would like to help you help us achieve that and reap the benefits. We are a non-profit organisation and charitable trust funded by Sport England and other funding partners such as Public Health. Our team of experts have comprehensive backgrounds in funding, facility development, capital projects, participation growth, youth engagement, club and coach development. We have secured hundreds of thousands of pounds for community facilities and projects for communities like yours throughout the county and can help you access the funding and expertise you need to make a difference. If you are looking to build a new facility in your area, set up a community project or would just like advice on how to develop your existing clubs or venues we can help and would love to hear from you and see how we can help. Anyone who is interested in the scheme should contact Katherine Mills either at horntonpc (at) mail dot com or telephone 721612.

Hornton Pavilion is a great flexible events venue. Hiring this venue is inclusive of the kitchen facilities, glasses, crockery, cutlery and all for just £10 per hour.
The building dates from the late 12C. The nave and north aisle, the Norman pillars and the cylindrical font have survived from this period.
