May 31, 10.00 am – 4.00pm in the Parish Church.
Valuation Day with experts from Holloway’s of Banbury in attendance.
Friends of Deddington Church
Although you may already have picked up this information from DN, it seems appropriate at this point to update you on our plans for 2013 and beyond.
On Friday May 31 between 10.00am and 4.00pm we look forward to an Antiques Roadshow style Valuation Day. Four experts from Holloway’s Auctioneers will be in attendance to value your treasures. We shall be at our Farmers’ Market table on May 25th to promote this event and (we hope) enrol a few new members. Meantime, you still have a couple of weeks to see if you have any items you would wish to have valued for possible sale. Or there may be things you don’t want to sell but would like to have valued for your own interest, or for insurance purposes. The cost is ₤2 per item valued, or ₤5 for three items. Refreshments will be available all day. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at some point on May 31st.
Many of you will have seen the posters advertising Steve Miller’s Abba Magic tribute concert on May 25th. Steve has been organizing popular concerts in the village for some time now, and donates the money he raises to various charities in the village. The theme of his summer concert (August 24th) is ‘Back to the Sixties’, performed by the tribute band The Pete Watkins Experience. Expect songs made famous by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Hollies and many others! Steve, who is also our events organiser, has kindly offered to donate ₤2 for each ticket sold for this concert to FODC. More details soon: posters will appear in the village from the first week of June onwards.
Our final event of 2013 will be a Tea Dance on Sunday 22nd September, 3.00pm – 6.00pm (more details later). Our first AGM will be on October 22 at 7.30 pm, in the Church. All of you are invited to celebrate the first birthday of FODC with a glass of wine. We’ll send out an agenda closer to the time.
Finally, on April 26th next year we look forward to a Calypso evening with a lively steel band. We envisage a cafe-style social evening with simple food, wine, beer and soft drinks and a space cleared for dancing to the music. We hope this event will be of interest to both young and older people. I hope you’ll agree that this is not a bad programme for an embryonic organization. You, our members are not short on ideas, and we need you to be active in coming forward with suggestions and support to maintain and increase our momentum. More on future plans on October 22nd.
Best wishes to you all and warmest thanks for your support

Teddy Bear parachute jump
Deddington Church's Teddy Bear Parachute Jump Fundraiser, 16th March 2013.
Participants had to create their own parachute for their chosen bear, and bears were then launched from the Church Tower.
Many thanks to Sarah for the fantastic idea, and to Dan and Ross for helping it to take place!
Patrons of the Living are the Dean & Chapter of Windsor and the Bishop of Oxford jointly.
The Parish Church is also an important focal point for a variety of village activities such as choral and orchestral concerts, drama productions, music workshops, craft fairs and markets. Its amenities - including modern kitchen, disabled, ladies and gentlemen's toilets, a loop system for the hard of hearing - make it ideal for such purposes.
Refreshments are usually available at all such functions as well as after every 10.30am Sunday service.
Our Sunday 10:30 service, Choral Evensong, Wednesday Eucharist and Evening Prayers are all broadcast live.
