Lasham Gliding

The Villager

At the time of writing Summer seems a long time coming this year. The Lasham Regionals in June were disrupted by poor weather, and so our pilots are now looking forward to ‘Lasham Glide’, which is the Pre-European Gliding Championship being held at Lasham from 30 July – 7 August.

Cemeteries and Churchyards: In addition to our beautiful British countryside and roadside verges, cemeteries and churchyards can often provide an important refuge for wildlife. Not only are they a final resting place, but also a living, and fully functioning haven for wildlife. Bentworth and Chawton church yards, and Medstead cemetery immediately spring to mind as they all have wild flower areas where the grass also grows slightly longer, so excellent for butterflies and other pollinators. ...

Medstead Bowls Club

The Villager

Work on the on the new playing surface of our green, which has been installed by Dale’s Sports Surfaces of Boston, Lincolnshire, started in mid April as planned and progressed very smoothly. The first job was to strip off the old carpet and load it into skips, which was very hard work because it had been soaked by recent rain and so had to be cut into pieces of a manageable weight. Fortunately they had good cool weather for this labour-intensive job and it was completed in well under a week. ...

Medstead Players – Pantomime Auditions

The Villager

Our May meeting was a reading of the revised script for a pantomime to be performed at the beginning of December this year. There was an excellent feedback from the members and they are very enthusiastic about staging it. It has been written by Nita Simpson and pairs Cinderella with Aladdin. Cinderella is about to marry Aladdin, when they find that all their money and wealth has been stolen, though they do not know by whom. As they cannot marry until the debts are paid off, Aladdin has to find a job, but all does not go according to plan. There are 12 adult roles plus a chorus of children. Everyone is welcome to audition it is always great fun. ...

Hedgerows and trees: Leaves and foliage are now growing rapidly with abundant rainfall and warmer weather. Before pruning trees and shrubs, and cutting hedges, it is important to check for nesting birds. Small birds and Blackbirds often nest in hedges and shrubs close to properties, especially if there is a good supply of food and water. If you discover a nest, it is important to wait until the young birds have fledged, before cutting back foliage. ...
