Summer is nearly here and lockdown is easing up a little.
There’s still time to spot interesting subjects and enter the Community News Photography Competition – the closing date is now Friday the 12th June.
We have separate competitions for adults and under 18s, with prizes for the best entries, so there is no excuse not to get snapping. Full information is on the Community News page. We look forward to receiving your entries.
Due to the current Coronavirus lockdown, the latest edition for May is only being made available as a PDF download from the Community News page.
Hard copy requests for this edition
If you know of anyone – for instance your neighbours – who will need a hard copy because they cannot access online publications, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with their postal address.
In a week or so, we propose doing a limited run of hard copies and will arrange for delivery.
It’s great to be able to get your daily exercise on the footpaths around the village, but please take care.
The footpaths across Rowborough Farm towards the A420 are now marked to enable walkers to avoid areas where there are vulnerable animals and farming activity.
Please respect others by staying on the routes that are signposted and keep dogs on a lead as there are sheep and lambs around.
The car park in Nightingale Woods has been officially closed by Forestry England.
The woodland is open, but to use it you will have to walk or cycle to it.
There are NO parking spaces along the single track Nightingale Lane leading to it. This Lane now only gives access to the three residential homes and Mitchy Motors together with the Thames Water pumping station.
Do NOT park along the lane as you will block the access to the above.
The only nearby parking spaces are the limited number in the Parish Council Car Park next door to the school.
Hopefully the car parking will be reopened when the COVID-19 Pandemic is safely over.
