Shortage of bluebells causes cancellation of walk!

The late arrival of Spring and consequent shortage of bluebells has caused cancellation of the Charlbury Society's 'Bluebell Walk'which has been a regular Mayday Bank Holiday feature of recent years.
The decision was made after consultation with Mr John Payne, owner of Singe Wood where the walk ususally takes place. 'The bluebells are only just beginning to show their leaves' he said 'you would be disappointed if you came as soon as Monday'.

Pub news

The Rose & Crown has won North Oxfordshire CAMRA's "Pub of the Year" award again. It was previously the winner in 2002 and 2003.

The Bell is under new ownership, but is retaining the services of chef Pete Southey.

The Thai restaurant at the back of the Three Horseshoes is currently closed (the proprietors have gone back to Thailand) with no word as to when it may reopen.
