My neighbours are the best, the place is beautiful in any weather and the people have been nothing but nice, nice, nice!! I am running the London Marathon (my first one) on April 23rd […]
The Local Government Association recently published a new report in partnershop with Public Health England which makes interesting reading. Their introduction in the summary begins: Some people who live in cities and large towns may think of rural England as a homogeneous array of green fields and farming land. However, this is far from the […]

Soon after posting the good news item about fruit tree pruning, I received the following email from the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. So depressing! Vandals stole and destroyed our minibus – and without it our ground-breaking educational project grinds to a halt. Insurance only part-covers replacing it and we are still £2600 short. Can you help? […]

The plants will grow and the mud will be turned over by walkers but it was a shame to see this graffiti on the footpath near the ancient ash this morning. This is an ancient woodland and could do without this. On a happier note it was great to see the benches restored with new […]
The sounds of chainsaws were once again heard coming from the old council depot, Manor Vale yesterday – they’d come to finish the job they started a few weeks ago. A line of beautiful, mature trees possibly 80, 100 or more years old brought down by a team of men with chain saws and a […]
