New weekly bus service linking Yarnton and Kidlington


Yarnton W.I. - urgent information - June meeting

Please note that there will be no meeting at the Village Hall on 8th June.  The Hall is being used for voting in the General Election and our speaker is unable to come as she is working as an election official.  We have therefore arranged a visit to Aston Pottery, for a quiche supper followed by a pottery demonstration.  The evening will start at 7 p.m.  For further information please contact Gaynor on 433770.



700 Bus Service from Kidlington to the hospitals

Currently the 700 hospital bus is not running into the Churchill Hospital because Churchill Drive is closed. The buses turn right by the traffic lights at the end of Gipsy Lane into Old Road, and you can either get off there and walk or just inside the Nuffield and walk back - and it's quite a long way. They haven't made a temporary stop opposite the top of Churchill Drive, which would have been helpful.
The diversion is until 26th May.  
Anyone with an appointment at the Churchill should allow plenty of extra time for a considerable walk, or even take the car.


Volunteer needed

TeaBooks is a charity project that organises book groups for the over-60s across Oxfordshire. We are hoping to start a new group in Yarnton Residential and Nursing Home, open to residents, visitors and the local community. We are looking for a volunteer to lead the group, once a month for about an hour. There will be a small time commitment between meetings to order books, etc. Full support and training provided by the TeaBooks manager.
