It’s looking like it may be a long Winter with many people in the village having little or no social contact so we thought we should aim to do something about it.
Introducing Social Activities for the Covid Age – The Oddington Winter Programme. Starting from the beginning of November.
The aim of the programme is to create a mix of socialising opportunities, some virtual, some real (but always with an eye to guidelines and common sense). At the moment we have two virtual activities – Come Drink/Cook with Me and The Lock Down Quiz – which will be done on Zoom. And two “real” activities - the Monday Coffee Club and the Wednesday Walk. If you have an idea for other events – maybe a Virtual Book Club, a Film Night or something else just let us know.
Come Drink/Cook with Me – will feature a guest mixologist/cook from the village talking you through a cocktail making/meal over Zoom at 6 p.m. every 2nd Thursday of the Month. You will be provided with a list of ingredients beforehand and you will mix/cook along together and then share your thoughts about the results of your efforts.
The Lock Down Quiz – another Zoom experience, a pub quiz running for about 45 minutes from 8 p.m. every 4th Thursday of the Month.
Coffee Club – At the Horse and Groom every Monday from 11ish. Just a chance to meet up and share a coffee whilst maintaining all the social distancing rules.
The Wednesday Walk – Meet up at the Village Hall on a Wednesday at 10 a.m. Split into small groups – maybe for a longer walk (Carole Thin a Cotswold Walks Warden can advise on some great ones) or possibly just a little potter around the village. Dogs, of course, welcome.
The Parish Council reopened the playground on 4 July. In order to comply with COVID-19 restrictions we have had to introduce a number of new rules:
We are grateful to parents for helping us enforce these restrictions which enable us to keep this very well used facility open.
