GLEBE WOOD LOSS

downloadSome likely lads recently stole a large section of tree trunk from a bank in the Glebe Wood opposite the parish church.  In the spirit of village togetherness let’s hope it went towards  keeping their dear old mother warm as winter draws on.  But we hope that the habit will not spread.  The management plan for this bit of woodland includes felling the occasional wild damson tree to make room for planting a variety of species, and we use the timber to edge the footpath.  Anything ‘just lying there’ has a purpose and is not surplus to requirements.

Next Village Society Talk

bee‘BOTHER WITH BEES’, an important matter and the subject of a talk by Dr Bill Block, a local beekeeper, whose is an Emeritus Fellow of the British Antarctic Survey.

Beekeeping has changed dramatically over recent decades with pests and diseases increasing in importance together with changes in agriculture.  After an introduction to modern beekeeping, Bill will discuss how these challenges are being met.  Tuesday, 21st October 2014,  Haslingfield Village Hall, 8:00 PM.  Everyone is mst welcome. Members and school age free. Small charge for visitors.
