OVRA organises events to bring enjoyment and interest to as wide a cross-section of our community as possible.  They are an opportunity for people to meet each other, learn together and have fun.  In a typical year we aim to organise several talks, one or two ticketed social events, two or three children’s trails and big community gatherings as appropriate.

Upcoming Events……In the planning!

Family Treasure Trail around Onslow Village. Free to download throughout the Summer Holidays. Completed entries will be entered in to a prize draw. Available on the website from the end of July.

Evening Talk – Solar Panels and other eco-friendly energy sources. Tuesday 17th September

OVRA’s Quiz and Wine Tasting Social! Saturday 5th October 2024 More information to follow. (Apologies for anyone who was looking forward to the previously advertised ‘Wingo’ event, we’ve had to change the format a bit!)

Advent Window Trail: Advent Windows will once again be lighting up around the village from 1st December. We want as many windows as possible this year so that people everywhere in the area can share in the fun. If you’re interested in lighting up a window in your house we’d really love to hear from you! Just email us at info@ovra.org.uk.

Community Carol Singing and Advent Window Walk: Friday December 13th. Mulled wine from 5.45pm, singing 6 – 6.30pm, short Window walk 6.30-7pm. Join us for mulled wine and fruit juice and half an hour of Community Carol singing under the sparkling Christmas lights around the Village Hall. Followed by a short tour of some of the nearby advent windows and maybe a few more bursts of song along the way!
