 Over recent months the Parish Council have been reviewing how we can improve our local environment and encourage the development of nature and wildlife. 

We have a number of proposals in hand at present but would like to ask parishioners to consider how we and they can help moving forward. 

We already have plans to plant a number of trees in the community, some in the conker field and others around the village and we would welcome villagers thoughts and suggestions as to where they feel new trees could be planted. 

We also want to encourage wildlife into the community and are considering several projects such as introducing new nesting boxes into village parks and open / green spaces, creating hedgehog habitats, installing bat boxes etc. 

Again, we would like to invite villagers to put their ideas forward as to how we can all help but in particular how they feel the parish council could support this initiative. 

If you have any ideas on trees, the environment or wildlife please send them to the clerk .  or use the comment tag below this post

Thank you in advance for your interest and support.

VILLAGE PLANTERS 2021 – Reminder

 Would you like to adopt a Planter? 

Residents have hopefully noticed over the years we have had planters on the grass verges as you enter the village, one at the bottom of Station Road / Wreake Drive and two at each end of Melton Road. 

The Parish Council generally pay for the plants and in the past volunteers have planted and nurtured the planters during the year. 

With the ongoing Covid19 restrictions we thought it might be a nice idea to ask families or individuals in the community if they would like to adopt a planter and look after it for a year. 

This would include planting the planter and maintaining it, you can paint it if you wish and we will put your families name on the website as an adoptee. 

If you are interested in adopting a planter or would like more information please contact the clerk or use the comment tag below by 1st February 2021. 

Thank you in advance for your interest and support.
