SUPPORT OUR FARMERS
At a time when Farmers are working hard to feed the nation ahead of the busy harvest months, they can ill afford to contend with fly tipping on their fields and in their gateways.
The closure of Household Waste and Recycling Centres and Government Stay at Home rules have triggered a surge in fly tipping. Members of the public can give their support during these testing times by keeping a lookout for any suspicious activities and reporting incidents they witness to the police.
'OF THE PARISH HERE AND THERE' - THE HISTORY OF MARTIN HUSSINGTREE
A quantity of books written by the late Gillian Lawley, previously Church Warden of Martin Hussingtree Church, have been donated by Gill's sons, Christopher and Graham. The books are £8 each and the money will be donated to Church funds.
This is a most interesting book and is available from Carol Hughes via the [email protected] button on our Contact page.
