ANNUAL Six-a-side tournament: Oakley Football Club is holding their annual six-aside tournament over this coming bank holiday weekend, Saturday and Sunday, at the Peter Houseman Sports Grounds.

There will be nearly 150 teams taking part and, as you can imagine, this will involve a great number of people and cars coming into the village. The club is making every effort to minimise the disruption to normal village life over the weekend, but would appreciate residents’ patience if the tournament does cause any inconvenience.

If you do witness anything that you consider inappropriate, please report this to the club, either by email to,, or to Bill James on 077177 60209. It would be good to see the village turning out to support the club and local teams.

OAKLEY Health Walk: All are welcome on this month’s Health Walk leaving the school lay-by at 2.30pm
