Work is due to start next week (w/c 13 June) at Walton Coppice. The Coppice was surveyed last year and the work will address various recommendations made including reducing the crown of the two oak trees at each end (pending approval from SBC as they have TPOs) along with felling trees which have been marked with orange spots and reducing the existing hedgerow to 2m in height. 2750 new hawthorn whips will be planted in the Autumn along the fenceline as many Bluebell Hollow residents felt it was an added security measure for their properties.

Did you know that Berkswich Parish Council have an analemmatic (human) sundial at Broc Hill, Milford? It was placed there in 2000 to mark the turn of the millennium.

Staffordshire County Council are on a mission to get as many businesses and school sites as possible in Staffordshire, to sign up to become an anti-idling zone and join us during 14 -21 March 2022 in a county- wide engine switch off!
Poor air quality can seriously aggravate conditions like asthma and it’s responsible for hundreds of deaths a year across Staffordshire.
You can help make a change! By signing up to become an anti-idling zone you are cutting down on the amount of pollution produced into the atmosphere resulting in cleaner air to breathe.
