June 2023

From 1st June 2023 Deddington Library will have a new Library Manager!

The FoDL extends a warm welcome to Gail Cripps.
Gail, a familiar and friendly face at the library, having been a past member of staff here, has family connections to Deddington and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience as she has worked in the library service since 2005! Welcome Gail from all at FoDL!

We are in urgent need of a new treasurer. This isn’t an onerous role, just a couple of hours a month and a bi-monthly committee meeting. The accounts are kept on a spreadsheet so anyone with a reasonable knowledge of Excel and bank reconciliation will be welcome. This is a fundamental operation within the Friends group; attention to detail, accuracy and honesty are essential. For more information please email


Our 2024 calendar photo competition is well underway and already receiving entries. Now that the weather is finally improving and the evenings are getting lighter, there are more opportunities to get out and capture some of those stunning scenes in and around our parish. Please send your images as JPEG files, landscape format and, ideally, 5Mb or larger to me.

The Friends produce a welcome pack for people moving into the parish which includes really useful information on where to find what in the parish and, of course, library related information that we can’t wait to share with newcomers. If you have new neighbours or know someone who has, please contact Meriel at to get a welcome pack delivered to your new friends.
