We know the village takes pride in our open spaces and our network of public footpaths.

The Cleeve Prior Heritage Trust, as well as being responsible for its own assets, is also responsible for the day to day maintenance of the Green.  We could use some extra help for just one morning to carry out some basic work to prepare the area for the coming months.

Several areas are being invaded by brambles and old man’s beard and there are one or two large patches of Blackthorn that need to be reduced. We want to organise some working parties to bring these areas under control as well as removing unwanted species.

The Heritage Trust will provide tools, gloves, coffee and biscuits. If you can kit yourself out in “wellies” and old gardening gear then we could really make inroads. This time last year was good fun, especially when the dogs get on well! And it was fair to say that everyone had a sense of achievement when we had finished.

Please contact Brian Taylor on 01789 773 075 or briantaylor1454@btinternet.com for more information                            

 We would still welcome anyone who would like to join us from 10.00am until 1.00pm. There are a wide variety of jobs that need to be done and all skills are catered for.

We are aware that Tuesday may not be convenient for some folks in the village so if you are able to volunteer on other days please contact Brian Taylor and we will organise alternative sessions. This is a nice time of the year to get out in the fresh air and help looking after these important village assets.

 

The Sanctuary

For many years Eric and Sylvia Grimmett were staunch volunteers with the Heritage Trust.  When Sylvia passed her family and friends arranged that the Plaque on the seat in the Sanctuary in Quarry Lane should be re-engraved to incorporate her memory along with that of Eric. The family and volunteers of the Heritage Trust also planted a tree in the garden in their memory.
