Costells Wood: Many of you are probably already aware that 12 acres of Costells Wood were bought last year by a local couple whose main aim is to preserve the wood and protect it from future development. If you are interested in learning more about their plans they have set up a facebook page called ‘Costells Wood’ and a webpage It is very disappointing to read that they have been having problems recently with Fly Tippers and idiots riding motorcycles through the wood. The woods are an important part of the village; certainly many of you are quick to stand up for the woods when there is any mention of ‘housing development’. If anyone knows who any of these offenders are then please inform the police or make contact through the website (see above for address).

Inn on the Green: Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity

Back in August the staff at The Inn on The Green and The Queen’s Head (sister pub) came together to raise awareness and money for Great Ormond Street by doing a Sky Dive. Well I am happy to say they all survived the jump and raised £1500 in the process. Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to everyone who sponsored the jumpers.

Monthly Quiz: Just a reminder that the pub now holds a very well supported monthly quiz. It is held on the first Wednesday of the month and starts at 8.00pm in the restaurant. The cost is just £2.00 per person with a maximum of 6 players per team. There is always a special meal deal on for those participating. The next Quiz Night will be on Wednesday 5 October so there is no excuse for missing it.

Music Spectacular: Back by popular demand on Friday 7 October at the Inn on the Green will be Matt Fisher performing his fabulous Michael Buble tribute act.

Matt performs some of the most iconic Buble numbers including; ‘Cry Me A River’, ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’ and ‘Home’. Tickets for the show cost just £5.00. The singing starts at 8.00pm.
