Parish Council

Parishioners of Bentworth if you have hedges running alongside roads or footpaths they probably need cutting back to allow safe passage.

Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

I think there should be book written on the etiquette of garden visiting. “How not to annoy your host.” Do you comment loudly on the fact that their hostas aren’t a patch on yours and how slug bitten they are.

Perhaps you make a joke about having one’s nose too close to the ground weeding and never looking up. ...

Farm Notes


The first fields of the 2017 harvest have now been cut although none of our crops yet. Yields are apparently average which considering the dry spell in the spring and the few very hot days is ok. The largest area of cropping on all arable farms is winter wheat and until we start cutting that crop the outcome of this harvest will not be really known. My view at the moment is that I would very happily settle for an average harvest but something better would be great. Soft brome which is a grass weed has appeared in some of our fields and on other farms this year – is this a seasonal effect that has been created by this year’s weather encouraging dormant seed to germinate or a result of cropping practice? ...

Trees and Protection: Although one mature Oak has been saved at the top of Blackberry Lane in Four Marks, and now has a TPO, the arboricultural officer did not have time to reach another landmark tree, a mature Monkey Puzzle in a garden at Bernard Avenue, and it was felled in June. ...
