All residents are automatically members of OMCA and welcome at meetings which normally comprise a committee of representatives of the various village groups and organisations.
Aims & Objectives: The aims of the Association are to offer funding and support to village organisations and to arrange social occasions for the whole community
Over recent years grants have been made to various village groups, including the Christmas Lights, Owslebury Tots and the Handbell Ringers. OMCA also supports the regular showing of cinema films, provided by Moviola, in the village hall.
Fundraising events have been limited since the pandemic, although a wine-tasting evening was held in March 2020. Outdoor events have included three Scarecrow Trails, organised by the Village Fete Team, and funds raised were shared between OMCA and St Andrew’s Church. OMCA hosted a children’s sports event and village picnic event to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and regularly provides mince pies and mulled wine for an outdoor social gathering after the annual Carol Service.
OMCA have recently purchased equipment, including gazebos, for use at outdoor events such as the annual Village Fete.
