Location of Banner.

In August, David Walton invited people to send in photo's for the banner. (Prize on offer!) Has anyone taken up the challenge?
Also, I asked if anybody remembered David & myself from our time in Charlbury. Apart from John Harrison, I guess the answer is no! I'm very disappointed!
Finally, if anyone would care to go to features & click on 'Old Pictures-People, there is a photo' of 'The Ripchords'-early 60s band.
Can anybody name the three members? John Harrison, you're banned, for the time being!! A clue? Say hello to a certain Charlbury hairdresser for me.

Hi David, glad to hear that all is well.
An interesting challenge you have set the Charlbury snappers! As for a suitable prize, let's hope it's not the gnat's water you call beer in Australia!! Should be interesting to see if you get any takers.
My apologies to you, John Harrison. It slipped my mind that you knew us both. Does anyone else on this site?

Hello Dave - All is well"Downunder".And a G'day to John H.
I thought the idea of changing the Banner, perhaps every 3 months,is an exellent idea.Are there any budding photographers in Charlbury who may wish to contribute? How about a competition for the best pic'? I will donate a suitable prize for a years supply!!

I thought I recognised the view. The last time I saw it was from David Walton's house in 1962!
Hi David, how are things in Oz. I'm probably the only person on here that does remember you even tho' I left Charlbury youth hostel in '62!
Come on people, prove me wrong!!

It's from my back garden, so yes, Nine Acres Close looking towards Spelsbury.

Just logged on to the Charlbury Site.Is the picture taken from somewhere in Nine Acres Lane looking towards Spelsbury?
I used to live in Nine Acres Lane some 40 years ago and it looks familiar."Hello" to all that may remember me -- for better or worse!!
