Thefts It seems the village is under attack from petty criminals with theft of lead and copper from the church roof last week, theft of fuel from cars and theft of sports equipment and clear evidence of intruders in back gardens over this weekend. Please ensure you pay particular attention to security of sheds, workshops and outbuildings these are opportunist thefts and they can be deterred by ensuring buildings are securely locked with strong bolts, hasps and padlocks. This weather also ensure that open windows are not an open invitation  John Woodward The thieves have returned to Horley over the past week and stolen more lead from the church tower. It is highly likely they will return to Wroxton. If anyone sees or hears anything unusual or suspicious please phone the police immediately - do not wait to try to contact the Rector or Church Warden first.
Over the last 54 years, Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust has given in grants, several million pounds to churches and chapels of all Christian denominations in Oxfordshire to help maintain them and save roofs, stained glass, wall paintings and much more.   Recently we have been supporting the installation of roof alarms for churches who have had, or are vulnerable to, lead thefts and of recent years given substantial grants towards making the buildings more useful to the local community - for example by the installation of kitchens, loos, extra rooms and more. Much of this has been as the result of funds raised by Ride + Stride - a fun day to get out and about cycling or walking or other activities.   We need more people to do support this as often these historic buildings are integral to where people live and in many areas are the only community building which can be used.
