This month's Village Walk went well despite the Corona Virus.  We all kept 6 feet apart.

We may try another walk in a couple of weeks time depending on Government advice/legislation.

Litter pick

A lively crowd turned out for the village litter pick on the 14th of March. Fortunately we had lovely weather and retrieved quite a large amount of rubbish from the hedgerows and lanes. The worst area by far was the approach road into the village from the old A303 leading up to Underhill but in general there…

Village Walk Update

Due to the latest Corona Virus advice the walk at Barford St Martin has been cancelled.

However, since exercise is still recommended it should be OK to walk, so long as we all keep 6 feet apart.

There will therefore be a group of us meeting outside the Village Hall at 10:30am on Monday for an impromptu unplanned walk.

The Sycamore Tree - what could happen next?

Thank you to all who saved the sycamore tree - it still looks magnificent.

Maybe another sapling could be planted in the triangle?  If the village thought the idea could work perhaps there could be a vote on what type of tree would be best. 

Why I have posted this is because several people we have chatted to, have thought the same, our Sycamore will surely in years to come will need to have it's fate decided once again.  So 2020 maybe a good year for a new young tree to start…

It is such a shame to lose the top growth of the sycamore tree, this does seem a drastic reduction, although, if this is the only way we can save this historic tree, then what can we do? We will still have the magnificent trunk, and over time, the leaf canopy will grow and this old tree will become more symmetrical in shape. There will still be nooks and crannies for the jackdaws, who hopefully, will stay.

Thank you Pen Parish Council for keeping us informed, and for protecting the…
