A meesage from Geoff Doole:


The ragwort is back but not yet in anything like the volumes we have seen in the past. Whether that means we are winning or just that the plant has made a strategic withdrawal for this year only time will tell. There is some around and it would be good to try to beat it back if we can. With that in mind if anyone can help on the morning of Saturday 22nd July at 09.30 at the entrance in Catsdell Bottom on Chambersbury Lane we only need to spend 2 hours to make a difference to Bottom Field.

A new list will be advertised in the near future. These are all Saturday mornings and as usual our start time is 9.15 am at the car park and finishing between 12.00 and 13.00 dependent on our mood , temperature and amount of work achieved. We are working on a plan but it will cover coppicing, repairs and maintenance as well as some clearing of pathways and woodland. All are welcome even if only for some of the time. We will send round reminders but if you can keep these dates free it will help. To help with catering can you let Linda Sutton, the Clerk know if you intend coming when you get the reminder and drop her an email. Look forward to seeing of many of you that can make it.

Thanks Geoff Doole.

Frogmore Paper Mill An Introduction









Please support ‘Forget Me Not Memory Boxes’

A small local ‘not for profit’ organisation that helps recently bereaved families.

A complete box cost approximately £15 but gives priceless memories such as photos, feet and hand-prints to a bereaved family.

Any monies raised would buy memory boxes for local families at a time when they are at their lowest point emotionally.

Whatever the value of your contribution it all goes into providing those precious irreplaceable memories.
