FLOWER SHOW UPDATE – EXCLUSIVE NEW RAFFLE

LATEST FROM THE FLOWER SHOW COMMITTEE

SPECIAL RAFFLE! – In addition to the prizes that are on offer this year there will be a special raffle of a voucher for a pair of Dubarry boots kindly donated by Charles Ludlow. 

The voucher entitles the winner to choose a pair of boots or other footwear from their current collection.  It can be redeemed at any of the Company’s outlets or indeed from their offices/warehouse which is situated between Enstone and Chipping Norton. 

The cost of entering is £10 per ticket.  If you can’t be at the Show but would like to have a chance of winning, please contact Sue Thomas at Wingate Cottage, The Town.

VILLAGE BONFIRE – DO NOT PUT ANY MORE GARDEN WASTE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Due to the increasing size of the village bonfire and the hot weather causing the neighbouring vegetation to be susceptible to catching light the Parish Council requests that no further garden waste is put on the site until further notice.

The Parish Council will review the matter at their September meeting.

South Newington Flower Show Competition – Text for Childrens Handwriting Competition

Below is the text for the Childrens Handwriting Competition – Class 96 – Ages 5-8 years

When a kind of animal or plant disappears forever, it becomes extinct. Since life began on Earth, scientists believe that 99 per cent of creatures have become extinct.
If this sounds incredible, remember that the earth has been around for about four billion years. In that time, many different kinds of animals have lived and died.
