From the December 2009 Parish Council Minutes

“Cllr Keene reported that over 50 people including the school and pre-school turned up in appalling weather on Sunday 22nd November to plant new trees and hedging plants. Sherington Nursery provided a stone plinth containing a plaque to mark the site. Cllr Patrick Martin chairman of BALC and Cllr Sam Potts both attended. Thanks have also gone to Trevor Rivett at Central Networks for diverting the overhead telephone wire and pole in time for the launch. 8000 bulbs have been planted with the remainder having been planted around the village and at the school and pre-school. Next year some informal seating, a stile, litter bins etc are planned and in the spring more publicity as the bulbs come up. Cllr Keene emphasised that this is a long term project that would continue to evolve over time.”
