News from RSPB - use old bananas to give autumn butterflies a sugary treat they will lap up. As the mushy banana gradually ferments and oozes in the sunshine, red admiral, painted lady and comma butterflies should find it. When they do, they're likely to stay for hours and then return day after day for the juicy treat. Make a couple of slits in the skin of the ripe banana and they will do the rest!
Parish Council vacancies for both Brampton Bryan & Willey: at the Lingen September 15th parish council meeting Mrs Susan Harley was co-opted for Brampton Bryan, no other candidates came forward. Therefore, a vacancy in the group remains for the parish of Willey. The vacancies arose due to two councillors being disqualified from office for failing to correctly submit their Declarations of Acceptance of Office, which is a statutory requirement.
Candidates for the vacancy must be over 18 and an elector. Live in the locality or within 3 miles of it (or have principal place of work there) for the whole of previous 12 months prior to day of election. Interested parties please contact the parish clerk. 23.9.15
"The annual Exhibition of Needlework over the bank holiday was enjoyed by many visitors as usual. This year our main charity fundraiser was for the Spiti Valley project in the remote Himalayan mountain region of India. Also heart shaped cushions used for the support and comfort of breast cancer surgery patients were displayed and given to a local support group, along with stitched activity panels for dementia sufferers, which have now gone to KINDA, Knighton Initiative for Dementia Action. Needling Along and Lingen Stitchers would like to thank everyone for their generous donations." Sheila Davidson.
