2016 VILLAGE HALL AGM REPORT – THE WYE CENTRE PROJECT
A year ago we had the skeleton of the Wye Project in place. We had formed a team consisting partly of trustees, and partly of interested villagers, to define the project and put together some design options that the village could vote on. We created a brand and a logo, which is now firmly in the consciousness of the village. We had dates in the diary, but no real plans to back them up as yet. Continue Reading »

Police in pursuit along the edge of the old Hop Garden
Despite the fact that our Police Constable Support Officer has again been changed, only having been appointed last year.
Police were on the ADAS case yesterday evening. This old site is frequently being broken into.
Yesterday evening a squad car went to the main gate whilst another drove up Occupation Road only to be foiled by the locked gate.
The two Policemen wanted to get to the back of the premises, not easy if you do not have local knowledge. Fortunately there is always a dog walker on hand to guide them!
Is this a good use of Police resources now that it has become a regular occurrence?

A beautiful little moth – wing span about 1.5 cm on the window of a garage on a cold April Afternoon!.
It has bright purple with golden markings – the post median mark – here bright yellow spot, notice also the small gold blotch between the yellow spot and the edge of the wing.
On P. aurata the only consistent postmedian mark is a round golden blotch near the costa, but there is usually a small golden mark between it and the costa.
P. aurata has two generations the first in May /June and then July/August. Although it flies both during the day and at night, this one was resting in late afternoon
The larvae feed on mints, including spearmint and Apple mint, marjoram, Lemon balm , catmint. It is quite common but small so is not always seen, both larvae and adults occurring in gardens as well as wild habitats with the food plants.
Speaking of spring don’t forget Catha’s Seat Picnic this weekend. Nick Keegan writes:
