Neighbourhood Watch Meeting - The Swan - Monday 29th June at 7pm

Evening All!

There will be a NHW meeting on 29/6/2015 at 7pm and we need to get this info to as many people as possible. So, if you would let your neighbours and anyone they know get this message, that would be great.

If you are interested in becoming part of the Islip NHW team, you will be provided with details on the night. Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting to hear from the police on the latest trends, along with some great security product offers.

It isn't a big commitment but It would be great to see some new faces, so come and join us for the evening.

Many thanks

Charity Hog Roast and Race Night!

On Saturday 11th July we'll be having a Hog Roast and Race Night at Islip Village Hall in aid of Aspire, a charity supporting people with spinal injuries.

Tickets are £20 per person and there's free food for everyone attending (including a veggie option). Why not come along for a fun night out?! There's a chance to win prizes and it's all for a great cause. There's also a bar where you can purchase drinks if you wish.

Every eight hours someone is paralysed by a spinal cord injury. During the time you come and relax on Saturday 11th, someone may lose the ability to walk. The individual affected will lose muscle and sensory control and the vast majority become full time wheelchair users for the rest of their lives. Your donation, through the purchase of a ticket, means that Aspire can offer practical help to spinal cord injured people here in the UK so that they can lead fulfilled and independent lives in their homes, with their families, in work places and in leisure time.

To buy tickets, please email and let us know if you need a vegetarian meal (if you don't specify we'll assume you want pork). To donate without attending, please visit To find out more about Aspire, visit

Friends of Dr South's 100 club

The Friends of Dr South's have launched their new 100 club and you can join by buying a number in the Islip Village Shop.

The 100 Club will help to raise funds to buy the extras that make our wonderful Village School even more enjoyable.

There will be 10 draws over the year with 100 numbers available to buy.

£10 will buy you a number in each of the 10 draws over the year

Three numbers will be picked out at each draw.

Half of the money from each draw will go to buy a resource for the school and the rest will be divided into the three prizes. For example, if 100 numbers are bought, £50 will go to buy a resource for the School and the Prizes will be £25, £15 and £10

For any questions please contact Sarah Pearson (3 Cherry Trees, Kidlington Road), or tel: 01865 370693.

Meanwhile come and collect a form and pay for a number at the Village Shop

Thank you from Sarah Pearson (on behalf of the Friends of the Dr South's).
