Farm News

The Villager

It sounds very repetitive but the weather does dominate farming and today it is very wet again. To put the recent rainfall into perspective when I first started farming in Bentworth in the early 1980’s the annual rainfall was about 28 to 35 inches per year – 2.5 inches a month.

Bad for holiday makers and farmers! ...

Garden Notes – Yellow

Garden Club The Villager

However it is easily possible to keep the pink and blue summer borders going into Autumn. ...

Hedges

Parish Council

Parishioners of Bentworth if you have hedges running alongside roads or footpaths they probably need cutting back to allow safe passage. The warmth and rain has meant that many of path/roadside hedges are now very overgrown and causing issues when trying to walk/drive along footpaths/lanes within the village. ...
