Below we have listed our progress since formation in 2007
OCTOBER 2011: NEW NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH SCHEME FOR GREATER SECURITY IS LAUNCHED
We have teamed up with the Nighbourhood Watch Team and devised a new text alert scheme. Read more and Join the scheme for free>>>>
2008 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 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>>>
