ESCC Highways have confirmed that the works on the telephone pole and cable is booked for 27th March so hopefully people's landlines will be back working sooner rather than later.

Following an accident on the weekend of 14th and 15th March a number of people in Dog Kennel Lane, Criers Lane and Brick Kiln Lane have been without their landline phone service.  The Clerk of the Parish Council has spoken to BT this morning, the work on a new pole and cable on the A272 opposite the Dog Kennel Lane  junction is due to be actioned on 3rd April.  I have arranged with BT for them to offer a free service to BT landline customers where they can divert their landline calls to their mobile phone, this will only relate to incoming calls and the caller will be charged the local rate rather than the mobile rate.  Customers need to ring 0800800151 to arrange this service.  If you know anyone who lives in these roads please let them know of this service.  For other phone providers customers will need to ring them

The Parish Clerk has been contacted by a lady who is trying to find out information regarding her father.  He was born on 3rd October 1946 at 5 Wheelers Lane.  His mother was Doris Maud King whose maiden name was Mathews (I don’t know if this is a spelling mistake or not).  If anyone has any information they can contact me so that I can pass it on.

We are continuing the Yarrow tradition of an Easter BUNNY HUNT at Wilderness Wood.  The bunny hunt will run by Lucy's Little Forest School - so with some new twists - from Good Friday to Bank Holiday Monday, 10am-4pm.  Over the weekend, there will be an Easter shack set up opposite the cafe with craft activities and lots of Easter goodies.  The cafe will be open everyday of the Easter holidays between 9am and 5pm serving home-made lunches and cakes - also running a family BBQ on Easter Bank Holiday Monday between 12pm and 3pm. During the EASTER HOLIDAYS Lucy's Little Forest School is also running lots of Spring activities for younger children and Ed Heusser, master of self-reliance, will be running a super-shelter-building- activity for older children.  All booking details are on the website: http://www.wildernesswood.org/events/ If any older children or teenagers are interested in coming to get involved in forestry or helping us build a new slide for the play glade, please contact emilyanddan@wildernesswood.org WILDERNESS WOOD NEWS Coppicing is well underway, cutting will finish at the end of March so as not to disturb nesting birds and emerging bluebells. There will be plenty of rustic chestnut poles available to order or collect from the yard, the rest will go to make trellis, arches

Litter Picking Saturday 28th March

With Easter around the corner its time for a bit of a village spring clean.  Some of the lanes have accumulated quantities of unsightly litter over the winter and need a thorough pick.  
I’m coordinating a litter picking work party to clear the lanes around the village on Saturday 28th March.   It would be great if we could arrange sufficient volunteers to cover all the lanes in the village.

This is a message sent via The Neighbourhood & Home Watch Network (England & Wales). This information has been sent on behalf of Action Fraud (National Fraud Intelligence Bureau)

Fraudsters are targeting people to list items on their behalf on popular online auction sites. The scam involves a job offer to sell desirable items at below market value and receive money from any potential buyers. The ‘work from home’ job will usually require retaining 10% of the money received as a “salary” and fraudsters will ask that the remaining funds are sent to them via bank transfer or money transfer.

Why so shy!
Editors Notes By Eddie on Feb 20 2015
I'm becoming permanently bemused as to why our village clubs, groups, societies etc. are so reluctant to tell people about their activities, their plans for future events and details of invitations to join them !!

Editors Notes By Eddie on Feb 18 2015
The New 'Our Community' page has proved to be a success! All known village groups, clubs, societies & other organisations, with one notable exception, have responded with the basic information and contact details required to create an entry and are now listed on one composite page.
