The Queen’s Oak was ceremonial planted on the common to mark the Queen’s platinum jubilee by Jeff Harvey the longest serving member of the BC&WPS committee. Thanks to all who helped make this happen and to everyone who came along to support the event.
Hand rails have been constructed and installed by E&R Meakes of Lane End at the crossing point on Horns lane opposite the public footpath .
Unfortunately crossing the road is still difficult and potentially dangerous due to the bends in the road and the speed of some drivers who use the lane but the hand rails should make this well used footpath a little safer and more accessible.
The completed handrails have been fully tested….
One of the Information panels has been removed by mindless vandals. Why anyone would want to do this is a mystery as it is of no use to anyone other than the users of the common. We will replace the board but this will be a significant expense that will take funds away from other work that could be done on the common.
