We 'Stitch' Together! 

The community of Oakley has come together in a big way since the beginning of the pandemic and we continue to do so. So many people have been amazingly generous, kindly donating enormous amounts of material and other products to enable this group to continue.

Our Service to You

Green Week

Every year in Oakley we get involved in Green Week which is a great way to help the environment. 

This year took a different turn and we introduced zoom groups to enable people to safely join in on the fun. Caroline did an amazing job of uploading a 'how to' video of her making a mask. ...

Oakley Link Magazine 

The Link has been running for a number of years which has only be made possible thanks to a dedicated team in the village. 

Our Oakley Stitchers group has been featured in the Link to reach out to those who haven't heard about our group and need an item, or for those stitchers and knitters who want to donate their time to helping a great cause. 

Oakley News Letter

Oakley has a great little community that come together during times of crisis. Our news letter details everything people need to know about bits and bobs going on in Oakley.

Oakley Village Show

Every year Oakley holds an great village show but sadly this year due to the coronavirus this couldnt be done the usual way. No fear! Oakely is still here! The community came together to set up stalls outside people's houses and a map was created for everyone to socially distance. 

Oakley Stitchers set up their stall and it was a resounding sucess getting so many people involved.
