Congratulations: to Paul Wilkinson for his amazing achievement in raising £7,000 for The Chestnut Tree House Team Daisy, in memory of Daisy Bushnell. He collected 520 Christmas trees from households in the village and surrounding area in exchange for a donation. I thought last year’s total of £6,600 must be the most he could raise, but once again he exceeded expectations. Paul says he is overwhelmed by how much this grows each year. If you didn’t ask Paul to collect your tree this year, do remember it next year. We are very proud of you, Paul.

The Trishaw Project: ‘Cycling without Age’: You may have seen this wonderful three-wheeled vehicle taking people, two at a time, for a ride! The power assisted cycle, guided by a ‘pilot’ goes on relatively short journeys, mostly on flat ground, giving people, many of whom might find it difficult to walk that far, a very enjoyable experience. The group are looking for new pilots and also new passengers. If you would like to know more about either, please contact Bridget Hamilton on 01273 833606 or 07929 294640.
