Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, 1st February 2024

It must be said that during the last week, all sorts of the signs of spring have been popping up. Last week the first snowdrops lifted their heads above ground and now it’s just so nice to see them adorning the village green area, they are more or less everywhere now! The first primroses are also out in Chuch Lane too.

Unfortunately so are some people who are leaving dog poo and also the poo in bags around again. Polite reminder please take the leavings of your dog home  with you, leaving it in bags around the foreshore of our beautiful river or on our village green really is not acceptable. There are plenty of bins around, please use them!!                                                                                                            

On a more pleasant subject, St Andrews Chuch is hosting a Cream Tea and Fun Quiz in the village hall this Sunday, February 4th . This event is suitable for all ages so why not come and play? The time is 3.30-5pm, and a suggested donation of £4 is being asked for to help meet the costs.                                   

St Andrews is having a Sunday Worship service on Sunday at 11am with Rev Ollie Long in charge of proceedings. All are welcome to attend with refreshments at the end of the service.                               

Just a quick mention to wish A.G resident Tilly Downing a very happy 70th birthday! A party was held in the Fishermans Rest last Saturday to celebrate . Everyone had a lovely time and the Penguins brought their music to help veryone dance the night away!

Have you heard about the Stutleberry Wood and Pond Project? No? Me neither but it’s apparently a local free to enter nature reserve, and is open 4 days a week. It is supported by a project called Farming in Protected Landscapes. It’s a lovely quiet area, no visitor centre, just lovely peace and quiet. Set up by Adrian and Alison Masters, their wish is that people just come and enjoy the quiet and different views and habitats overlooking the wonderful Avon Valley. This little gem is about ten minutes from A.G close to the Avon Mill garden centre.
