You cannot help but notice the removal of turf at the entrance to Combwich and wondered what is happening. This is the start of the creation of a wild flower meadow by volunteers from the village. The work will continue next Saturday 20th October from 10am and volunteers are needed to complete this stage of the work. If you can give us an hour or two to enhance our village it would be much appreciated.. For more information contact Liz on (01278) 652687
