Village Litter Pick

Sue Douglas - 17th June 2012

As agreed at the last Parish Council meeting a few hardy souls meet up and carried out a litter pick around the village on the morning of the 10th June. We were fortunate that the rain held off for the morning and although the verges had not been cut by then, we could only work on the 3 main village roads. However we did manage to fill 15 bags, including 3 with recyclable materials, not a bad morning’s work.  Thanks to Sue and Tim Jickells, Sheila Mcleod, Margaret Dye and Kathy Wood for their community spirit in joining me with this job.

The Diamond Jubilee Scarecrow Competition

David Smith - 2nd June 2012

The weather played against form for a Bank Holiday on the Saturday of the Diamond Jubilee weekend, and it was a real pleasure strolling around the village in the warm sunshine to discover the wonderful scarecrows created by the villagers.

The scarecrows were judged on quality of construction, originality and humour, and the offerings were consistently very good indeed, with only 4 points out of 30 separating all the entrants.

But there has to be just one winner, and the prize went to Sue Jickells for her representation of Her Majesty gazing regally out upon Church Lane. Congratulations to Sue, but also to all the contestants for their hard work.
