After Coffee, 24 trekkers trying to sit on one small bench, we reached the first wooded area, coming across a carpet of Bluebells (English), Wood Anenomes and Stitch Wort (thanks Ann). A fallen tree had some walkers considering a limbo competition but too many bad knees and sore backs soon brought in a reality check. The highlight for the quiet bods at the front was the look of disbelief on a small stags face as two dozen humans ventured onto his turf. After giving us his best Paddington hard stare he went about his business ever so slightly annoyed.

The second wooded area held even more treasures with purple Orchids and wild garlic, just ready to burst forth, plus an unidentified bird’s egg. (Song Thrush, according to Google images)

The last 400yds, across the Manor House grounds, contained 6 stiles which tried legs found just a little bit of an effort. Ancient earthworks, in the very last field bordered by Devil’s Brook, were overlooked as the Oak Pub and lunch was just the other side of the fence.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
