Farewell to Churchyard Tree
A second horse chestnut in the churchyard has been felled due to safety concerns over the hollow trunk at the base of the tree. The tree was felled by Heritage Arboriculture Ltd. Replacement Hornbeam trees, planted several years ago, are already well established.

Approximately 50 people and ten children attended a Remembrance Service at the Parish War Memorial.

This oak tree along The Old Road is still clinging onto many of its leaves, even in mid December. Oak trees tend hold onto many of their leaves until winter winds clear them.

New Classrooms arrive
On Thursday 17 November 2016 four new classroom modules arrived at Pinchmill School on articulated low loaders. They were craned into position and when completed they will provide two new classrooms and toilet facilities.
