At the Recreation Ground we are experiencing considerable problems with a gang of young people.  Most recently they have wrecked the cricket nets, witnessed by several people who were intimidated from intervening. If you see any trouble please contact the Police on 101 and they will come down if they can.  They are already involved in trying to root out the extensive use of nitrous oxide, a gas which when inhaled it can make people feel euphoric and relaxed –nicknamed ‘laughing gas’. It is a pressurised gas in the canister, carrying a risk of harming yourself or even sudden death if you inhale it straight from the canister.

Community Garden. After the cool and relatively unsettled weather in August many crops had a second lease of life during the warm days of September. However, apart from the odd meal of beans or courgettes through to the middle of the month, October sees the end of the season for the majority of summer and early autumn crops. Clearing the plot is now the main order of the day. Here is a list of possible autumn jobs on your plot.
