NEW GOALS FOR THE PLAYING FIELD

The young people who play football thanked the Parish Council and Village Society for providing and installing the new goals. It seems we have scored a winner on this occasion! Well done the team of volunteers who put up the goals.

THE WOODLAND TRUST – TREE PLANTING

As part of a campaign by the Woodland Trust to help combat climate change the Parish Council have been given 105 trees to plant. The Council is planning to plant them mainly around the West and South edges of the playing field to boost the density where the existing shrubs and trees grow in order to augment and protect the natural habitats of wild life. The pack of trees comprise a mix of hawthorn, blackthorn, silver birch, hazel, common oak and rowan. With so much in the news recently you must have been moved by the voices of young people calling for us to protect the future of the planet. The planting of trees is only a small contribution and the Parish Council and Village Society are looking at other ways to support our local environment to help create a lasting legacy for future generations.
