Electricity Supply

The Parish Council has taken advice on a replacement for the electricity supply shed on the playing field. It has been suggested that the electrics can be mounted on a block wall and we are therefore looking for expressions of interest from anyone interested in building a suitable wall approximately 1.5m high x 1.5m wide.

In addition, we would be grateful for any donations of materials - blocks, cement etc. If any parishioners or businesses are willing to  supply the materials (not a condition of carrying out the work), that would be a major contribution. If you can help in any way, please contact the Clerk at wsmclerk@gmail.com

Japanese Knotweed

Japanese knotweed is a strong-growing, clump-forming perennial, with tall, dense annual stems. Stem growth is renewed each year from the stout, deeply-penetrating creeping underground stems.

New legislation:

An amendment to the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 includes Japanese knotweed and other invasive non-native plants.

A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PARISH  COUNCIL

Living in a village means many of us need a car to access work, shops, college, etc. Parking is, and has been for some time, a problem, particularly at this time of year when a large volume of agricultural equipment is being moved through the village.

The Parish Council are appealing to all car owners who have off-street parking to use this whenever possible.

This will allow those without this facility to use the limited on street parking and ensure that agricultural machinery and lorries can drive through the village without difficulty.  Thank you for your co-operation and also thanks to all those who already use their off-street parking.
