The Nor'Lye News has been published in North Leigh, Oxfordshire, since 1973. Serving this historic village as well as neighbouring New Yatt, East End and parts of Wilcote, it's monthly round-up of news and events aims to keep us up to date.

For information about this website, contact details and more, see our Nor'Lye News page.

Remember, we need your input to keep both the printed Nor'Lye News and this website fresh and relevant. Contact us with letters, news or articles if you want to have your say.

CHRISTIAN AID WEEK : 13th - 20th May

Please be generous when the accredited Christian Aid collector calls on you during this week. Last year the people of North Leigh, New Yatt and East End raised the record sum of £1,855 for Refugees. This year's theme is 'Together we're Stronger than the Storms'. We aim to help those thousands of people still homeless after the awful spate of natural disasters which have happened this last year.

Your help and generosity will be greatly appreciated.
