Please note the plaque commemorating the names on the young men who lost their lives in World War 2 has been be removed from the Memorial earlier today, Thursday 18th July.
The plaque is being removed to correct the initials of Robert Thomas Jenkins of the Royal Army Medical Corp, who died on the 19th July 1944.
A specialist company will remove the plaque and work on removing the T and J and replacing them with newly cast matching bronze letters R and T.
The works are expected to take around 4 weeks.
Once completed the plaque will be reinstated on the Memorial.
The incorrect initials were highlighted by a close relative of Private Jenkins who lives in the village by the History Group when they were researching the names on the plaque, it is understood the family tried to get the plaque corrected at the time but were not successful.
The Parish Council wants to say a BIG THANK YOU to Ju for producing over 500 Squirrel Biscuits which were sold at the Squirrel Trail launch and then afterwards at the Post Office and Spar.
All the biscuits have now sold out and as well as tasting great have raised over £500 for North West Air Ambulance.
So if you had one of these tasty treats you now know who made them!
The draft minutes of the July Parish Council minutes have just been published along with the notes of the meeting about Community Assets and the Community Right to Bid.

We are very pleased to report that there has been a significant improvement in the amount of dog poo found on our second survey held in June. The following areas were clean and no dog poo was found:
The Millennium mile
The path along the back of the cricket pitch and Jubilee Wood
Covert rise, Spinney End and Brockway
Oaklands and Rookery drive
Keysbrook and Harding Avenue
The Centre of the village
The new Redrow estate is now being included and no poo was found there. There has been a big improvement to the churchyard since the children’s posters went up. One heap was found on the park area and Greenlands had reduced from 6 heaps to 5. It would be good if there was none in this area when the last survey of the year takes place in December.
Free biodegradable bags are made available around the village and this appears to be helping. The Guides are making some new posters which will be going up shortly in view of the fact the other posters have suffered from the torrential rain and need replacing.
We had a successful evening with Andrew Hull kindly talking about the Jubilee wood with the Guides and Suzanne Miller came to the meeting to talk to the girls about how dog poo can affect farm animals and the need to follow the Country Code but she explained that most farmers are happy for people to walk across their land provided they follow the Code.
