OPEN GARDENS 2019

Thank you to everyone who supported the event, by opening their gardens, helping in the village hall, baking cakes and so much more.

We raised an amazing £1313.

We were lucky with the weather – a sunny day between two very wet days so we had lots of visitors.

Congratulations to the winners of the Bugs, Bees and Butterflies Trail:

  • Clair for her witty snail’s race
  • June & Gina for the beautiful flower butterflies
  • Yvonne for Charlotte the Spider.

Village Hall Talks

There is a series of talks being held at the Village Hall in which speakers from the village who have a specialist skill/interest/experience, share their knowledge. There is no charge for entry.

Our thanks to the first 4 speakers:

–  Dr Sharon Croskin who began the series with a stimulating and very interesting talk on TRAUMA – the body keeps the score.
– Simon Thompson, dog handler and canine first aid trainer, who gave a talk on DOG FIRST AID, which was very informative and thoroughly enjoyed.
– Dr Peter Williams, who shared the depth and width of his knowledge and experience on  growing plants throughout A YEAR IN A WOODLAND GARDEN. Very impressive slides Peter!
– Buffy Breakwell for the COMMUNITY CHOIR WORKSHOP, which was great fun and which got us all singing confidently as promised!

Unfortunately the next talk, which was to be on the subject of
THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY, and which was due to be held on
Tuesday 24th March,
has been CANCELLED due to coronavirus.

It will be re-arranged as soon as possible. Watch this space!

Parish Plot

PARISH PLOT

Our thanks to Roger Brook for maintaining this little oasis, which is situated on Church Lane near the crossroads with Breckstreet Lane and Mill Lane. Please feel free to visit and enjoy.

The plot is owned by the Parish Council for the use of villagers and has gradually been reclaimed since 2005. Once the site of charitable homes for older village residents, the old fruit trees remain but only the foundations of the houses.

Peter writes an interesting blog called: nodiggardener.

Annual Litter pick – 15th March 2020

ANNUAL LITTER PICK – SUNDAY 15 MARCH

MEET AT THE VILLAGE HALL @1.30PM

Thank you to all those who keep the village tidy but there’s lots of litter being left on our grass verges coming into the village from all directions, which makes them very unsightly and often dangerous for animals. So please join us at the village hall @1.30pm. Bags, gloves high viz jackets and litter grabbers will be provided
