Keeping Burton Green as attractive as possible is important to all of us. The tubs at the entrances to the village and on the Jubilee Verge seem better than ever this summer and thanks are due to resIdents who have mowed the Verge, planted the troughs and kept them well watered over the dry, hot weather.
A number of residents have volunteered to have "grabbers" and litter pick on a regular basis in Cromwell lane, Hob Lane, Red Lane and on the Greenway. We are all yery grateful for this important contribution to maintaining our environment. If you wortd like to help, please let us know.
The Residents Association had a yery productive meeting with the WDC Recycling Team in August. They appreciated our community's concern about our environment, which they share.
Our next lunch (for the Retired of Burton Green is October 26th, so make sure you book your place! This event is closely followed by our commemoration of the centenary of the 1910 Armictice on Sunday Novernber 11th. We are planning an afternoon tea at 3prn, when there will be songs from the First World War period. We have been successful in joining the national Beacons of Light scheme. The Parish Council has agreed to purchase our beacon, which will be lit at 7pm in common with beacons across the country. This, we hope, will be preceded at 6.55pm by a bugler playing The Last Post. We hope you will all join us for this moving community event; the venue will be confirmed later. You will also have the opportunity to purchase a cross for recording the name of someone who died in conflict, which can then be placed on the Jubilee Verge. Poppies will be decorating the Verge with silhouettes of World War One 'Tornmies'.
Our Speedwatch team has carried out a number of speed checks recently and there have also been Police speed checks. Speeding remains one of residents' main concerns and we are all very appreciative of the work of the Speedwrtch seam and the Police.
Our AGM takes place on Monday October 1st, with refreshments at 7pm and the meeting starting at 7.30pm. So please come and have your say. We would be particularly interested in your ideas on our Santa Sleigh fund raising event charity and any suggestions you have for community projects for which can seek funding from HS2.
