As many of you know the Asthall Leigh Memorial Hall and the Villagers Lunches supports the work of the Besom food bank.
At this time, all food banks are very stretched, so we are keen to help out as best we can and are supporting the Witney Food Bank as well as Besom with whatever food we can.
 
Are you able to help?
 
If so, each week there will be a plastic box outside the Memorial Hall, where contributions can be put and will be collected regularly.
 
But if you are not passing through the village,
Fred and Anneke from the Rickyard in Asthall Leigh, have kindly offered to pick up any food that you are able to contribute from your front door step on Friday mornings and they will do this with appropriate protection.
 
Please call or text Fred;
07802-738506
to let him know that you need the food collected and where you will leave it.
 
Here are some suggestions from the food banks;
 
Long Life Milk
Tinned vegetable of all kinds – particularly potatoes
Tinned Fruit
Tinned Meat
Tinned Fish
Tinned Rice Pudding
Long Life Fruit Juice
Sauces
Cereal
Biscuits
Jams
So if you can add any of the above to your weekly shop it would be hugely appreciated.
Thank you all so much for your support.
Stay safe and stay well.

ARMISTICE 100

A huge thank you to everyone who made our remembrance events so – well…..memorable.

For those unable to visit the hall during the period, and indeed for those who did – we will be publishing a number photos and articles that capture the essence of the weekend.
These will not only include the fun and frolics, but also the factual documentation and stories provided by many of our community who have been in someway involved in our Armed Services – either personally or via family association.

Links to the photographs and special remembrance features will appear below in the coming weeks.

 


The Asthall Leigh Memorial Hall stands as a memorial to the men and women who fell in the 1914-18 and 1939-45 Wars, and to those that returned.

Records show that the Hall dates back to 23rd February 1922 when the land was purchased for the sum of £40.00 for the purpose of providing a site for the erection of a building as a war memorial for the Parish of Asthall.

The first Trustees were, William Mustey of Fordwells; Robert Mills, Joseph Albert Fenemore and John Williams all of Asthall Leigh.

The management of the Hall and Garden is still in the hands of the Memorial Hall Trustees and is now a registered charity, No. 263789.  There are seven trustees and one Parish Council trustee.

The trustees are committed to provide the residents of the Asthall Parish with recreational and social facilities.  As volunteers, they give their time and efforts to maintain the Hall’s objectives as set out in the original Deed of 1919 and are always seeking to improve and expand the facilities for the benefit all the residents and users.
