EVENT UPDATE: Peter has made it!

A few days ago, at about 10am, Peter Britton strolled into the main car park at John O'Groats. His virtual walk was over. The original distance from Land's End to John O’Groats is 811 miles per Google Maps. Somehow, he did 913 miles but he did take several detours, especially around the Yorkshire Dales and The Lake District.

Since the last update, he has covered the distance between Ramscraigs, up to Wick, along the A99 and into John O’Groats.
The purpose of his doing this virtual walk was to try to raise as much money as possible to help fund the running costs of your local library in Adderbury. Focal has the responsibility to raise £10k every year. If they don’t, then the future of the library could be at risk.

We understand people are tired of being asked to sponsor this or donate to that which is why Peter has tried to do something different. Hopefully, in return for a donation from your hard-earned cash, he has given you something in return. The purpose of his weekly blog was hopefully to make you smile while you learnt something new and quirky every time. He also threw in quite a few litter picks around the village while he did his actual walking.

If you have appreciated Peters efforts and you care about your local library, please make a donation now. How to do this is under the Donation link on this website.

Some of you have already pledged money on completion. Can you all now action those pledges, please?

Peter will not personally ask for donations again, so please act now.


EVENT UPDATE: Preview performance of CONTRACTions by Banbury Cross Players

Nicola Dixon and Almira Brion in rehearsal for Mike Bartlett's Contractions

With some 30 guests watching the two actresses unravel their extremely dark story-line, we were all mesmerised, not knowing which way this extraordinary drama would play out! 45 minutes of suspense but with the added bonus that  after the closing scene, the audience was able to  discuss the play with the cast and director.   This came with the idea that the play could be tweaked for the two upcoming festivals and, hopefully, win prizes for their performances.

Superbly, micro-directed by Chrissie Garrett, working on all of those expressions that can really make the story grab your imagination and brilliantly performed by the actresses, we wish Contradictions all the best for their forthcoming events and thank them most sincerely for putting on the performance for us.
