Roadworks Playing Fields Lane 9th Sep

Western Power Distribution need to carry out work on their underground cable network on Playing Fields Lane. They will need to trench across the lane as per the attached plan, therefore vehicular access and egress to residential  properties and the recreation ground may be fully or partially restricted during this period. They will provide cover plates for excavations where possible.

The date will be 9th September for the excavation works (with reinstatement typically completed within two working days). This will temporarily block access to some residents and WPD will write to those affected to keep them informed.

10th Run Around Supper Report 2019

10th Run Around Supper Report 2019

Apologies for the delay in writing this post, but we wanted to let you know that the 10th Run Around Supper raised almost £1,500 this year. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed and supported the event – it’s very much appreciated.

The money is being distributed between the First School and Barney’s Fund.

Barney’s parents are putting the money towards a new ‘off roader’ for Barney (called an All Terrain Delta Buggy) as he is outgrowing his existing one and no longer sits comfortably in it. This is essential for those everyday pleasures that we take for granted, like going up the hill and enjoying our wonderful surroundings. A new buggy means that Bev and Andy can continue to take Barney on country walks to find horses – Barney’s favourite thing! They can also push it on the sand when they go camping and access places that would be difficult and dangerous in a wheelchair. Bev and Andy focus on the positives, making everyday count and creating happy memories – and your contributions really help them to achieve this.

Thanks again for all your support.

Evesham’s first Walking Festival will be taking place across the Vale and Cotswold Edge in the first week of July. 15 walks have been planned by Evesham Rambling Club. 3 of these walks are on and around Bredon Hill: Wednesday 3rd July “In summer time on Bredon”-meet 9:30 am at Overbury village centre, GL20 7NR for a 3 1/2 hour, 5.8 mile, stroll across the southern face of Bredon Hill. The theme of this walk is based on verses from “A Shropshire Lad” by Worcestershire poet, AE Housman.
In the afternoon, starting at 2.00 p.m. a three-hour walk, covering 5.4 miles, explores Overbury, Kemerton Lakes and Conderton.
The next day, Thursday 4th July, a 6 mile walk “The Bredon Hill Bash”, leaves the Queen Elizabeth Inn, Elmley Castle, at 6.00 p.m. for a summer’s evening ascent of this “magic” hill. We hope to be back in time for a drink and a snack at the pub.
