Water meadow clear up session this Saturday 24th October!

We are having a clear up morning on Saturday 24th October 2020 to tackle the weeds and nettles especially around the sapling hedging along the footpath.

We need help to cut back nettles and weeds, rake up the debris, clear fallen dead branches and put down weed membrane and bark chippings.  If you can spare an hour or two, then please bring your tools and join us from 10am.  We will be working in socially distanced groups to comply with Covid-19 guidelines.

Please note – you MUST advise in advance if you intend to come as you will need to read and complete a short risk assessment for your safety. Please contact V.body@froxfield.org to be sent the form.

New Councillors needed!

Calling all residents of Froxfield………….. could you spare a few hours a month to become a local Parish Councillor?

We’re a friendly bunch and after the resignation of Pat Adams after 13 years service on the Council, we currently have 2 vacancies for Councillors to join the Parish Council.  No previous experience is necessary, just a willingness to be involved and help to make decisions on matters relating to the village, where and on what the money gets spent on.  We hold a Parish meeting once every two months.

If you would be interested, then please contact the Clerk to the Council Sarah Whatley at Froxfieldclerk@yahoo.com

Mini plant sale Saturday 6th June

There will be a mini plant sale on the village green this Saturday 6th June at 10am.  There will be an honesty box so cash only please and no change will be given.  Social distancing rules will apply, so please be considerate of others.

If you have any plants to donate, they can be left outside Pat’s house at 24 Church Road.  All proceeds will be given to charity.
