2013 fete - preliminary results

The preliminary estimate of takings for yesterday is a magnificent £4,381; it is really good to have raised so much for the Church, the Hall and the Field, despite the untimely downpour.  A really big thank you to all those who worked so hard to achieve this and to all those who came and spent the money.

All claims for expenses or any other income to me as soon as maybe please

"State of Nature" and Moldrams Ground Nature Reserve

The latest report called "State of Nature" from 25 wildlife and conservation organisations makes very worrying reading. It shows very clearly that wildlife reserves, valuable as they are, are incapable of saving our wildlife, much of which is now under severe threat. Even one of our national wildlife icons, the Hedgehog is now under threat of extinction in the UK and it is likely that our grandchildren will never see one. Wouldn't it be good if every parish would pro-actively encourage…
