As part of our community project to provide our parish with a play area we are planting trees in Wheelbarrow Castle field strategically located to compliment the design of the field and its future.
We are looking for volunteers to assist us in this phase of the project, on Monday 23rd April at 10:00am. All you need to take part is a spade and a willingness to get involved and plant a few tree saplings.
We are meeting in the School Carpark at 10am. To find out more please contact Sharon Hurr on 07342 166188
The Parish Council are organising the annual Spring litter pick for Saturday 14th April, meeting in the Primary School car park on Wheelbarrow Castle at 9.30am. All equipment will be provided, including gloves, bags, hi-vis vests and litter grabbers. Please spread the word and come along to spend an hour making our village a cleaner place. All ages are welcome. If you can definitely make it please let our Parish Clerk know so we can make sure we have enough equipment. Thank you and see you on the 14th!
The 2nd of our new notice boards was installed last weekend at the corner of Dodsley Grove and Dodsley Lane. We hope you agree it’s a massive improvement on the old wooden board! The 1st of the new notice boards was installed outside the village shop in December. Pictured here after installing the board is Trevor, one of our Councillors involved in the project.
With the days getting longer we are on a mission to establish a greater Speedwatch presence within the village. The most recent session logged over 40 drivers exceeding the speed limit in under an hour! However we need more volunteers. It’s an interesting role, you’ll always be working with another volunteer and for no more than an hour at a time. Some simple training on using a Speedgun is provided. If you can help please contact our Parish Clerk or complete the volunteer form, click here, for more information.
A big thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the village litter pick on Saturday. With a good number of helpers we were able to cover most of the village. It is always surprising that so many bags are filled and then always slightly depressing when a few days later the litter returns. The Parish Council is looking at the viability of installing bins in some of the litter hotspots.
Saturday, 14th January 2017 from 9.00am and throughout the morning.
The main tasks will be to cut back the perimeter hedge, neaten around some of the graves and clear out the newly repaired shed.
From the fantastic reaction to the village gates and to conversations with residents we know that speed through the village is a major concern. With all Parish Council initiatives for roads in our village we need to collect data to submit with any road proposals to West Sussex. Speedwatch is one way which we can do this but it does rely on volunteers. If you want to get involved there would be a short training session which we will provide and you can then join the list of volunteers and get Speedwatching.
