New Grasscutter for the Village

The Parish Council has recently invested in a ‘ride-on’ grass cutter and trailer in order to keep some of the rural footpaths around the village clear and tidy.

 

The Parish Chair, Neal Yates is currently using the grass cutter to the footpath that runs by Camblesforth Hall and as the above photo compared with below show, (before and after) this has already resulted in a great improvement for anyone who uses the walk.  He will also be cutting Camela Lane and other hard to get to areas – in his last Chairman’s Annual Review speech, Cllr Yates spoke about a strategy to improve the appearance of the village for all its residents – maintaining rural paths is another example of this and we hope all residents are happy with what the Parish Council is trying to achieve for everyone’s benefit.

Cllrs welcome any feedback or comments on this news piece.

 

 

 

 

Hanging Baskets in Camblesforth

 

The Parish Council has now installed the hanging baskets in the village along Brigg Lane and Mill Lane. We hope villagers will enjoy these as they grow and flower over the next few weeks / months.

 

 

 

As previously mentioned Cllrs are hoping this is the just the beginning of efforts to improve the look of the village and next summer we will be looking for other projects and hopefully more involvement from residents to ensure the Parish Council is giving the village what it wants.

The Parish Council would like to thank local business Adams Nurseries (who are based in the village) for all their work in helping Cllrs with this project and also Dave Marshall, our village grass-cutter / handyman, who will water and deadhead the baskets over the next weeks / months.

Cllrs welcome any comments / feedback on the new baskets as well as any ideas / suggestions for similar projects.

 

Bringing a bit of colour to Camblesforth

The Parish Council is very pleased to advise that it has recently purchased twenty hanging flower baskets which will be displayed on lamp posts in key areas of the village – Cllrs are hoping this will be the beginning of an annual event and will expand in forthcoming years with residents themselves becoming more and more involved.  Longer term we would like to look at flower beds for the Memorial and Millennium gardens

The baskets will hopefully begin to appear mid June and we hope they will improve the appearance of the village as well as raise spirits during these difficult times.
