Expect to hear cheering and car horns honking when campaigners from Keep the Horton General (KTHG) hold a birthday event outside the main gates of the hospital.
The group will be wearing their Save Our Horton tee-shirts and flying balloons in Oxford Road on Sunday, July 17 at midday.
“This year is a tremendous milestone for our beloved hospital,” said KTHG chairman, Keith Strangwood.
“During the pandemic, when the world was brought to a standstill, the staff at the Horton continued to ensure that services were provided for the people of Banburyshire.

“The hospital has survived two World Wars, plus another pandemic in 1918, soldiering on throughout. Its resilience is testimony to the love, care and admiration of staff and patients alike.
“We want to celebrate our Banbury Queen’s 150th and invite our supporters to join us for some rousing choruses of Happy Birthday on Sunday, June 17."
Details will be on the Save our Horton official Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SaveOurHorton as well as Keep the Horton General Facebook group.
The group continues to be recognised by the local community, and is enormously grateful to Banbury Utd Community Lottery for its ongoing support. And this week, Banbury company, Walraven, has just handed over £381.40 to the fund.
"Coincidentally the company is marking its 80th anniversary so cause for a double celebration," said Keith.
"The funds were raised via a quiz night held at Banbury United Football Club, highly valued supporters of the campaign group."
