Wye Fire Service to the Rescue

Rob Dudley 1 Rob Dudely 2

Banks Holiday Mondays can go one of two ways. This Bank Holiday definitely went the dull cold and windy way! 

How wonderful  that the day was rescued for young Barney pictured.

Robert Dudley Barney’s Grand Father writes:

Many many thanks to the brilliant fireman who showed our wide-eyed five year old grandson round the station and the engine on Bank Holiday Monday.  Barney  couldn’t believe his luck and as you can see was a bit overawed by the occasion. But it cheered up a cold windy morning and was very much appreciated.

David Reece Village Hall Project Manager

Wolfson House goes wild

Orange Hawkweed

Popping up to Lepper’s Homes and Gardens for yet more gardening requirements (busy time of the year in the garden). We spotted a bright orange daisy growing between the edge of the now very overgrown grass and rag stone wall of Wolfson House. This little flower’s brilliance certainly draws one’s attention.

Wye is full of interesting people and the right person came along at the right time. Dr Geoffry Chapman on his way home to Scotton Street quickly drew on his wealth of knowledge having had a long career in plant science. It was he revealed a Hieracium Aurantiacum otherwise known as Orange Hawkweed.

Editor: Perhaps Telereal Trillium’s lawn mower could find it’s way round to this corner of our village?

Editor: We all enjoy the vivid colours of spring but a few warnings for gardeners about this beauty:
