AYNHO ACTIVE
AYNHO ACTIVE are pleased to announce that the Pavilion now has a Brick Built BBQ.  A special mention must goes to Steve from Apricot Builders who responded positively to the email requesting help to build the BBQ for the village.  He worked hard putting the idea into fruition.
We can’t wait to use it at the Post Lockdown Party at the Pavilion on Monday 19th July 2021.
Thank you to Helen Parrish for organising the Spring Fayre and raising £80 for Aynho Active. We’ve been able to buy with the money 4 Tennis Rackets and balls, 2 Basketballs and a children’s cricket set.
We have also started to tidy up the old boules pitch ready for new sand to be purchased and laid for the Aynho Beach Area.
Finally we are looking to set up an Aynho Active Social Tennis club on a Thursday evening.  Please email David.Icke@aynho.org if you’re interested.

WOMEN’S INSTITUTE
Our July meeting with the intriguing title of “A Thread Running Through” was so meaningful.  Our own Lis Mann’s fascinating talk was about her family’s flight from Vienna to England just before the beginning of WW2 through to her present life in Aynho and how it has influenced her thinking and her artistic work. We can now look at her lovely work with more appreciation.
There is not usually a meeting in August as for most it’s holiday time but with the present situation the idea of a coffee morning had been mentioned. We are now happy to confirm that there will in fact be two so we can keep the numbers to about 12 for each one.  The dates have been arranged at The Cartwright for the Wednesdays of the 18th and 25th August from 10.30 – 12.00. If you can come would you please let Jill Wightman know asap. This will be paid for from our funds as a ‘thanks’ to you our Members and a celebration for the end of those necessary lockdown rules.                          
Our next meeting on the 15th September will be a talk from Ian Calderbank – again a local – on “Famous Last Words” – sounds like another mysterious evening afoot. Meanwhile look forward to our Coffee Morning(s) and Ian’s talk so until these times, take care.
