Neighbourhood Watch

Crimestoppers The Villager

The police would like to remind everyone that there are some unpleasant folks around who prey on the elderly members of our society. They purport to be calling from the Bank or from the Police and gently lead people to giving out their bank details. This is something that does not happen with genuine calls from banks or the police. ...

Church Tidy Up – Thank You

Church The Villager

The PCC would like to thank everyone who helped with the annual Autumn Tidy up this year. Owing to the weather it took place on two different days in November, with those who couldn’t manage either date doing their bit when it suited them. Drains and gutters were cleared, headstones freed from ivy and the last of the leaves swept up. One of the main targets was the bit in the middle by the lime trees which had become rather overgrown. Hopefully now that some of the older graves have been cleared and exposed and the grass around them cut it will be easier to keep under control in the future. ...

Rural Crime Meeting – 20th November 2017

I attended the above meeting which was hosted by the police, country watch, EHDC and others at Penns Place. The subjects covered included cyber-crimes, abuse, flytipping, hare coursing, livestock worrying, nuisance caused by off-roader motor cyclists. Sadly, although I know that an invitation was sent out to Parish Councils, community groups and other interested persons, within the EHDC district, only about 40 people turned up. ...

Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

You must have some plants to cheer you up in winter and viburnum tinus is one of them, evergreen with white flowers for months. The variety Eve Price is more compact than the type and has pink buds opening white. This is a useful shrub that will flower in some shade if needed and can be treated like a hedge and cut back in spring after flowering. The other taller shrub I have is another viburnum, viburnum x bodnantense ‘Dawn’, not evergreen but with pink scented flowers whenever the weather is kind. Shorter than these is the winter flowering honeysuckle. lonicera x purpusii. This is a bush not a climber and has very scented flowers. They are not showy, but brought into the house to put with other flowers they are lovely. It is semi evergreen but I pick the leaves off to enjoy it. You can hack this back after flowering if you need to. ...
