Treasure / Scavenger Hunt

My camera skills are obviously lacking as the presentation of first prize to the winning team- Charlie's Army has disappeared ! However this is the winning team's selfie taken at the start The faces of other winners go some way to showing the satisfaction of picking up a prize With equal points second and third had to be awarded on 'time taken' and with the forth prize winners missing out by loosing video points but with an excellent questionnaire, it was a closely fought contest. It seems that sweet talking got The Great Danes past the flock of sheep crossing the road while the scoobys got caught up amongst them and some ( due to the staggered start) arrived after they had crossed! Quick

Boot Sale Result

In aid of raising funds for the Bridleway Any owner of a horse was missing out if they failed to call in at this car boot sale because amongst the usual offerings there were so many stalls offering such great horse related items. Hope you raised a good sum

Hamlet's own TV Star

It was great to see Ian Neale featured on the BBC program ' Land of the Giants' It showed him growing his giant veg from the planting of seeds to the final harvest. It seems none of us will be able to entice our plants to challenge him for it transpires you need special giant veg seeds and many of these come from his own winning crops. Other challenges are preventing disease carried in the soil, finding the right feed and problems with the weather. It takes an awful lot of time, skill and dedication to be a giant vegetable grower. Well done and congratulations on more certificates gained.

Green Lane clearance

Hi all, I meet with William Routley and the countryside warden for NCC this morning We walked the green lane opposite the Old Barn and the warden informed me that he will send contractors out to clear it this Friday and it will be on the list of streets to be cleared each year. Will is really trying his hardest to help us, I have tried for years to get the council to clear this Green lane( which is council owned), with no success. Hats off for William, he is working through the list we have given him and he was off to check all the drains and has been investigating the issues of traffic/ speed on Magor road and Pencoed lane.I will keep you updated,
