A resident from Pheasant Rise visited the Parish Council office to report that yesterday (Tuesday 28th Oct) afternoon from approx’ 2pm onwards two youngish men dressed in black trousers and black tee-shirts were knocking on doors. Her husband answered and they said they were from St John’s Ambulance Service and were taking donations. He offered them £5 but they declined saying they were only taking donations by direct debit and asked for his bank account details, which he did not give.
We believe that this is a scam and if anyone has given bank details they should warn their bank!!

Bar Hill Wetland Project
For over a year now there has been work to implement a project to improve the Nature Reserve. The aim is to retain more water in the balancing lake in times of heavy rainfall whilst maintaining the environment. The project is well advanced and the Parish Council is investigating the funding of this project. To provide more information about about this project I plan to create a page of information and I plan to keep a blog of pictures once the project is underway (hopefully later this year). To read the plan for this work look at
