Scarecrow competition

It was a shame that the Scarecrow competition had to be cancelled due to lack of support but we did have one entry - we were pleased to be able to display Jamie Buxton's scarecrows outside the Turner Hall where the Art Exhibition was taking place on Saturday 3rd June so all attending the exhibition were able to see his "Oliver" (from the musical" ) and very good he was too -  well done Jamie and thank you for your efforts.

Wychwood Fair – appeal for books!

Residents of North Leigh have for many years been very generous in donating books to the Wychwood Forest Fair bookstall – and we hope this year will be no exception!

 There is no donation point in the village this year (huge thanks to Margaret for last year!) but collection can be arranged for larger quantities (50+ books, CDs and or DVDs); please contact the Wychwood Project office, 07584 262437 (Mon, Wed, Thurs)
