Mobile phone found!

Very many thanks to Debbie Jeffries and her sharp eyes for spotting on Facebook some kind stranger’s post about finding an iPhone at the end of Marsh Lane.  Sadly it is almost certainly beyond repair but confirmed that shopping for a new one is the right things to do today!  Our daughter and family had just set out.....

Our children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces  all played football, cricket and many other games under the tree. Picnics on the lawn beneath its shady boughs where all the family…

Jackdaw Tree / Sycamore Tree near the Church

I for one, would be very sorry to see the tree felled or cropped to a stump and would be happy to sign a petition to protect the tree, if the Parish Council have put together a petition?
