Maybush Copse Big Picnic Sunday June 9th, 12noon – 3pm May 8, 2019

Bring your own picnic and, we suggest, something to sit on/blanket. Bring your friends - it is a FREE event. We will provide gentle entertainment and community games. There will be real live Owls, KTROO, rides, Tug'o'war, the Ukulele band and more. And the sun will shine. We are celebrating Maybush Copse - 10 years of community effort and pleasure (with nature doing the really difficult stuff).

Cot Lane Road Works outside Pinewood Nursing Home: starts Wednesday 17 June (change of date)

The work is to improve highway drainage in order to avoid rainwater ponding and freezing on Cot Lane outside Pinewood in winter.  Ice has been a problem for pedestrians and vehicles alike for several years at this location. The Parish Council has obtained funding for the work and appointed B&M Plant Hire Ltd as the contractor.  The revised date they intend to start work on is 17th June but external factors may again make it necessary to change the start date.  The work will take a few days.
