On Tuesday 18 October, if you were in the village, you might have been aware of a group of approx 30 children, their teachers and a group of adults from Oxton out and about enjoying Greenfields School Autumn visit to the village. We measured and drew an oak tree, did surveys and studies in the Church and churchyard, planted bulbs and made “Lacewing hotels” in a village garden. A huge thank you must go to the organisers of the new Oxton play space as the city children could hardly believe their eyes at the range of new play equipment.
After a seasonal lunch prepared and cooked by the children and helpers we once again set out to visit Water Lane to have a mini duck race. The children were all encouraged to shout for their particular duck and the noise could nearly be heard in Epperstone!
Oxton Lifecycle works on a charitable basis to share the rich heritage we have in our village and countryside with the children from the City of Nottingham who might otherwise have less opportunities to see what is on their doorstep.
We in turn, as a group, visit the school a number of times a year so they can share with us the exciting things they are learning in their school and area. As Lifecycle Oxton is purely there as a charity we pay for all the costs, food and transport etc for the children’s visit. We constantly have to look for ways of fundraising. In consequence we have been very fortunate in being able to secure the Carlton Male Voice Choir (see below) who have offered to come and perform a concert for us in February 2012. The choir is much in demand and this will be a very popular event so please do come and join us to support what is a very worthwhile Oxton cause.
