Week 11 June

Horsetail or Mare’s tail weed has an extensive root system and thick silica structure that has proven resistant to normal spraying. It spreads quickly and forms a dense carpet of foliage along our pavements and walls. This week we are trying something new to fight it, fingers crossed that Colin and his team have the right solution.

More green news, the flower beds are being replanted this month. One of the delights of the summer is seeing the bright splashes of colour that the flower beds give to the green edges along our roads.

We are still looking for walking footballers – might the world cup be an inspiration? Contact the Parish Council at 01670 858664 or info@choppingtonparishcouncil.org to sign up.
