Our thanks and best wishes go to Andy Hedman who has recently resigned his position of councillor due to heavy work commitments.
As a result, we now have a vacancy on the Parish Council which can be filled by co-option. If you are interested in becoming a Councillor, please contact the Clerk with your details and a brief resume of why you would like to join the Council, by 6th November.
We hope to meet any prospective candidates before the Council meeting on 9th November and make a decision on the night.
There was a successful working party in Old Church Wood on Sunday 16th October. We cleared the overgrowth from the new hedgerows on the west side, strimmed the east side ready for planting a new hedgerow in December and made a start on weeding the southern hedgerow. The areas round the benches have been strimmed and the step on the section of footpath going from the bus stop to the gate has been repaired.
Many thanks to those who took part.
The remaining section of footpath, at Archies Pond, will be having a top layer of dust applied and compacted over the coming weeks in order to even out the surface.
New Bat and Bird boxes will also be installed as a measure to encourage wildlife in the area.
Dog walkers are reminded to keep their dogs on a leash whilst out on the Moor as there have been incidents of dogs approaching the wild ponies and sheep.
