There is still quite a bit of Ragwort around the village which, as everyone knows, is extremely harmful to forest animals.

It looks like this…..

If you see any near your property or anywhere else in the village please pull it up and dispose of it with normal garden waste or rubbish. If you can’t manage it please let us know and we’ll try and get someone over to do it for you. If you are pulling it a fork helps and you are advised to wear gloves and also a hi-vis vest if you are walking along road verges.

The animals and the commoners will be very grateful!
