Living in Aynho

Your Village Entertainment

(Aynho Recorded Music Society)
The Aynho Recorded Music Society, (ARMS), is in trouble.  Age and Covid have reduced our numbers to a point where we may have to close down after twenty years.  We have excellent recording equipment for CD`s and a projector for DVD`s.  The Society has been playing mainly classical music but that could change to meet current preferences.
We normally meet at 7.30pm in the village hall on the first Wednesday of each month and, perhaps, the last will be
on Wednesday 6th October.  No entry fee will be required for this meeting and anyone interested in music will be very welcome.  Bring a CD to play if you wish.
If you want to make contact phone Doug Ward on 01860 810723 or email

This month- the 13th – we will be having our first talk in ages. Barry Smith will be telling us about the Restoration of Stowe Gardens.  He was originally booked to come in May 2020 but has kindly agreed to be with us this month, so do please join us for what should be an interesting evening.
The Village Hall will be open at 7.00pm, with the talk starting promptly at 7.30pm. Hand sanitizer will be available for your use, there will be plenty of ventilation in the Hall (maybe bring an extra jumper) and it will be a personal choice if you wish to wear a mask.

It is great to see more of our regular walkers coming back as well as some new additions. There is still plenty of space for anyone else to join us and experience the beautiful countryside around our village. The long walk, the strollers and the track are all available and start at 10.00 am every Thursday morning and you can enjoy refreshments and a chat at the end. Hand sanitisers are in place.

Our next big event will be our annual exhibition of members photographs ‘in the Living Room’, Deddington Church on Saturday 23rd October 9.00am-12.30pm. If you would like to join us for the next talk, we will be transported back to “The Yorkshire Dales in the 1950s” by Paul Brewerton. We meet on 6th October at 7.30pm at the Adderbury Institute.

We are happy to report a fascinating talk from another Aynho local, this time Ian Calderbank. It turned out to be very amusing as well as quite poignant at times, on the dying words of some famous people offering an interesting insight into their characters.  It was also good that we are another step nearer normality as we finished with our usual refreshments.
Our previous coffee mornings at The Cartwright proved to be a great success and as agreed more have been arranged. These will be on Wednesdays the 6th and 13th October with two more in November and all paid for by the WI.  It’s essential to know the numbers for each event so you will, by the time this Newsletter reaches you, have already been asked about your preferred date.
On the matter of numbers for events, hate to mention it but The Cartwright’s Christmas Lunch Menu has been sent to you so that we can: a) know who is coming (it is 1.00pm Friday 3rd December): and b) your menu choice at the next meeting.   Meanwhile hope all is continuing smoothly and we look forward to seeing all members at our October AGM.
