Progress - Past Achievements


We have teamed up with the Nighbourhood Watch Team and devised a new text alert scheme. Read more and Join the scheme for free>>>>    

As a result of a successful application for funding from Grass Roots, we have received £5,000.

2009 We  put some of the money to good use immediately. The Millennium Oak  received a well needed re vamp.The bench has been painted and the support for the young Oak tree has been removed as it was restricting growth. The  cobble stone base has been dug up and completely re-laid.

The plaque has also been cleaned.  This work was carried out in August 2009 and as you can see from the picture above  the tired state of the bench and the cobble stones has now gone and it has been returned to its former glory.

Everybody in the village  thanked the team that carried out the restoration work. Special thanks to Colin Woolmer and Keith Walton for the stonework, John Thompson for the steel work, Ray Ruffell for the painting of the bench and donations of stone by Michael Heap and sand and ballast from Len Butcher.

2010 February The foundations for our Village Green Sign were laid.

2010 September: After consultation, design, planning, digging and erection, hundreds turn out to watch Boris Johnson, the only London Mayor to visit our village in its 2000 year history, to open the Village Sign officially


2010 Bus Stops We have been advised by TFL that our plans to design and build our own bus stop would mean that we would have to maintain it aswell. This comes as a shame but we are still looking to introduce some new information boards. Read our newsletter>>>
