I’m not sure how many people use the paths around Nailstone but there has been a particular problem this year with the land owner’s not reinstating the paths after ploughing and, particularly, once the crops have started growing.

To report any problems use the form at this link.

Here’s a link Ploughing and Cropping Leaflet to a very useful leaflet from Leicestershire County Council. Below are images of the same leaflet.

Hopefully everyone will have seen Alec Duthie’s post, to the parish council, about the damage caused to the garden last week. Unfortunately this damage has continued today as can be seen from the following picture. The wholesale destruction of the garden, which has taken years to mature, is completely unacceptable.

As can be seen from the photos a nest was found amongst the cuttings which goes to show that this is completely the wrong time of year to undertake this work, especially to this extent.

What I think a large number of residents will want to know is who authorised this destruction and what are the plans to return the garden to the state it was in only last year. We are also aware that more work (destruction) is planned!!

For anyone who hasn’t seen the garden first hand I suggest they take a short walk round it to see what a truly disgusting state it is now in.

What is the cost to the community so far and how much more will it cost to return it to the state it once was?

I’ve also include a few photos from when the community group were last allowed to tend to the garden.

We have been loaned a speed gun until next Monday (16/06/2018). I know it’s short notice but we need as many volunteers as possible so we can monitor & record the speeding cars and overweight lorries that are blighting our village.

Please email with you availability. Any time of day or at the weekend will be helpful.

An informal covert session last night, for about 45 minutes, caught 20+ speeders which was pretty much everyone coming through the village!

Please help.

A great turnout for the 2nd litter pick, hopefully even more local residents will support this initiative to keep our village tidy.

It’s only been a couple of months since the last litter pick but we still found this lot!

and, as last time, I couldn’t resist getting in a ditch, so much plastic and other rubbish to remove!
