Yaxham Woodlands Group AGM 2009 - Chairman?s Report
The first AGM of the Yaxham Woodlands Group was held last week. The event was well attended and an address was given by the Chairman, Mr George Crummett. A new committee was elected and two new members joined the Steering Group Avis and Brian Osborne.
During the past year meetings have taken place at Pinns Corner on the first Saturday of each month. This proved very successful high attendance with many activities undertaken. The making of the raised bed at the Primary School was a success and the first year children planted acorns last October. The next planting of acorns by this year?s first year Reception Class has taken place at the school. Volunteers from the Group will be working with the School?s Gardening Group on a regular basis to maintain the saplings and acorns.
Other activities have included:
- Spoon making
- Ditch Clearing
- Clearing Pinns, Low Lane, Mouses Lane and Pinns Lane
- Green wood-working
In addition we organised the Rogation Sunday Village Walk, with some 30 people walking along some of the footpaths in the village. We were wished on our way by Rev Sally Thurgill at St Peters, and ended the walk at the Village Hall with refreshments provided by the ladies. Fund-raising remains a priority. We have been successful with some grant applications and have bought a selection of tools.
This year has been a good start and we look forward with anticipation to the year ahead. Our next event is at Pinns Corner, Yaxham at 10.00am on Saturday 7th November for a bonfire, demonstrations of crafts and a pumpkin carving and scarecrow competition. Refreshments will be provided.
