GREAT PARISH TREE GIVE-AWAY
As a response to their commitment to planting more trees as part of their Environment Strategy, the SSDC are offering 60 packs of trees to all Parish and Town Councils in the district. It’s a lottery, but nonetheless your Parish Council have applied and are now looking for land owners (I don’t think that small private gardens qualify) who might provide suitable locations. Also welcome are comments and suggestions from everybody in the village. More details can be obtained from Richard Thatcher ( [email protected] or phone  220735).
