The Parish Council was fortunate to receive 30 tree saplings of 5 different species. They will be planted on the Holkham area of the Playing Field. The planting will take place on 27th March. The Parish Council would like to invite the local children, aged 13 and below, to become involved with this project, as they will benefit from this project when they become older. So would anyone interested to hear about the new Jubilee Wood being planted and the new Jubilee Celebration Mugs pleases contact either the Chairman, Mr Mike Davies or Mrs Chris Davies on 01362 668784 to register the interest. A poster regarding this event can be viewed here and also on the Village Events page.
