Library tree – update

The Library Tree
Those who have walked past or used the Library recently will have seen that the copper beech tree has been removed.  It had been causing too many problems for library users and passers-by.

The Society was hoping to commission an artist to create a sculpture to take its place, using the trunk.  Unfortunately, the timber was not suitable, so we are exploring an alternative source for a suitable piece.

Deliberate damage to vehicles reported

We have received reports of cars having their paintwork deliberately damaged.  These incidents have occurred to cars parked near Knowle Park, some parked on the pavement, some parked in driveways.  The Police have been informed and have requested that anyone who has had such damage caused recently or in the next few weeks should report it.  Please use the Police non-emergency number 101 for this purpose.  This will enable them to determine whether there is any pattern to the incidents and take measures.

Litter Pick

On Tuesday, Volunteers from the Society and the Council blitzed the village centre and Warwick Rd, clearing a large amount of rubbish and litter, filling 14 large bags, and helping to make the village look clean and tidy.
