Great Turnout for Hursey Common Work Party

A very big thank you to the 30 or so people, young and old who gave up their Sunday morning to help at the work party at Hursey Common. It was a fantastic team effort and among the tasks completed was the building of a replacement foot bridge over the stream –  the original had rotted away, the hanging of two gates at the entrance to the sports field, scrub cleared from the wild flower meadow, the repair of the fencing at the sports field with posts kindly donated by Rob Hedditch and  the clearing of scrub from the sports field fence. We have been asked where the excellent bacon and sausages came from, they came from our very own excellent Village Shop.


Join the Hursey Common Work Party – 9 December

A Hursey Common Working Party has been arranged for 9 December – this Sunday from 10.00 am. A lot of the work will involve cutting brambles and scrub back from the sports field fences, paths and wild flower meadow. Gloves, strong boots or wellies and working clothes advisable. If you have secateurs, loppers and heavy duty shears, please do bring. There are a couple of gates to hang and a foot bridge to be built over a stream. Children are very welcome, there will be suitable work for them to do. Refreshments of tea and coffee, bacon and sausage sandwiches and a veggie option will be served. Please do join us if you can.
