OAKLEY Ramblers: Have two walks arranged this week. The first was on Thursday, and the second is on Saturday, meeting at 9.30am at the school lay-by for the second part of the canal walk.

OAKLEY health walk: For those who want to enjoy a shorter local walk, why not join the health walk meeting at 2.30pm on Sunday at St Leonard’s Centre for a walk of about an hour.

THE gardening club: Will be meeting on Monday, September 1 at 7.45pm at St Leonard’s Centre. New members will be warmly welcomed.

BACK to school: First day back is Tuesday, September 2 for Oakley schools – don’t forget!

THE Link: We have a very good village magazine, which is published monthly. If you are currently not subscribed to the magazine, you can pick up a copy at Jolly Olly’s and then register for your own monthly copy to be delivered to your door in Oakley.
