Upper play area and church wall repair
You may be aware that the upper playground gate has been locked to restrict access whilst the wall has been inspected and a determination made as to condition and any repairs needed. After seeking advice and receiving estimates for the work a contractor has been appointed. We had been given a start date of the end of August beginning of September and although the work has not started yet we are expecting to see progress soon.

You may have noticed some areas in the village are being left for the grass and wildflowers to grow but do we need to do this?
YES! - We need more Wildflowers - Here's why
Wildflowers and wildflower-rich habitats support insects in many ways, providing lots of things that insects need: food in the form of leaves, nectar and pollen, also shelter and places to breed. In return, insects pollinate the wildflowers, enabling them to develop seeds to spread and grow in other places.

UPDATE 31st August 2021
The working group has made good progress in identifying the area for development, the type of play equipment that best suits the needs of the children in the village and possible suppliers and installers of play equipment. Meetings are taking place with suppliers to help design a suitable play area and we will keep you updated on these as things progress.
