Sponsored Toddle
& Teddy Bears Picnic
– Sunday 2nd October 2016
If you’re four years old or less, this is your big chance to help raise money for the new clubhouse. Persuade a parent to bring you to the playing field at 10.30am, in time to start a Sponsored Toddle on a special short route round the village. You can download a map which shows where you can collect special tokens to prove to your sponsors that you did the toddle, the full toddle and nothing but the toddle! Sponsorship forms can be downloaded here or ask Jo (01780 444311) for one. And then after you’ve cleared the finish line, back at the playing field, on the same day, people of any age can bring your favourite teddy bear and a picnic to the playing field and enjoy a Teddy Bears Picnic. It would be great to see you, and to meet all those lovely bears that normally only get to play at home.

Pocket Park makeover

The hedging around the Pocket Park has been in need of control for a while and as the previous volunteers from the village now seem to have other jobs to do the Playing Field Association thought the best option would be to ask a group of Conservation Volunteers to give it a Spring Clean.

The oak tree planted to commemorate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee had sadly died, so the TCV group replaced this and also filled in the gaps in the hedge with native plants that had been donated by Western Power. A lot of work was needed to clear up the brambles, but despite it being a really wet day, the volunteers did excellent work in about 3 hours. There will be a skip in place soon to take away all the cuttings.
