Summer BBQ and Cycle Ride

We’re very pleased to confirm that our upcoming summer BBQ and sponsored cycle ride will take place on Saturday 5th August, 2 - 6pm, at our regular and most favourite venue, the Barn in Wytham Woods. Please get it in your diary and don't miss it!  

Our BBQ's are always well attended, fun occasions in a beautiful and rather exclusive location, and a great opportunity to sample Ann Dennis's fantastically famous fare. A Trustee of OOSO,  Ann is an experienced and fully trained chef, having worked in many of the top end restaurants, and for years since runs her own very successful and busy catering business, "Ann's Munchies". 

Due to scheduling issues we brought the event forward this year, to bang on mid-summer, hoping for a lovely, warm and sunny day, oh dear famous last words! 

There's no need to book, just turn up on the day, but if you’d also like to be involved in the cycle ride drop me a line
hereYou can let us know nearer the time if that suits you better. We’ll provide more details about the BBQ and ride over the coming weeks - watch this space!

Slide show

As you know, we're currently running our annual photo competition until the end of this month.  So far we've had a good number of submissions to a very high standard, but the door is still wide open for more special snaps. This year we've decided to display the initial entries in a slideshow on our website home page - you can view them here.

To enter, all you have to do is email the webmaster 3-4 of your favourite pictures, there's no rules and no fuss. There'll be a nice prize for the overall winner and two runners up.
