The Community Herb Garden has been looking lovely in the summer sunshine and the herbs planted last year are now well established.  At the last work party, a line of lavender was put in to form a back boundary.  Thank you to the villagers and relatives who donated plants.

The Boyton Oil Syndicate bulk order in June was the biggest yet!  32,000 litres and 32 customers, who each saved over £49 on a 1000 litre order. That’s £1,568 on the whole order that is still in people’s pockets!  The order was delivered promptly in two 20,000 litre tanks – so there were fewer tankers rumbling through our lanes – an added saving.

Boyton Inn was open in June – and there was just enough sun to sit out with a glass of Pimm’s! Table football, games of Jenga and visiting dogs made for a lively evening – and there were excellent snacks too.  A mystery has yet to be solved though: who has the ‘silver spoon’ that was awarded for the tastiest snack at the last Inn of 2012? Can we have it back please, for next time?
The next meeting is on Saturday 27th July, 10 am at Chesterfield Lodge (411203). All welcome as always.

After a slow start to the year things are starting to pick-up for the community group with an active calendar of events forming….

  • Beachwatch, the litter pick along the river, will take place on Saturday 16 March, meeting at the Village Hall at 2.00pm. Contact Keith Lilley
  • Peninsula litter pick, Sat 23 March. Most of the villages on the Peninsula have agreed to coordinate a mass roadside litter pick on this weekend to help keep our verges and environment cleaner and smarter for visitors and wildlife to benefit. We hope to improve on last years achievement – see map for details of confirmed pickings. Contact Andrew for details or call 411720.
  • Boyton Inn should resume in April, running through the summer to September – Saturdays at 7.30pm at the village hall. Watch this space and Village Voices for further details.
  • Birds & Brunch is a new event, planned for Bank Holiday Monday, 6 May. This will involve a guided walk around the marshes, village or forest, looking to see what birds are breeding or passing through, followed by refreshments in the village hall. There will be a small charge for this event with all proceeds going towards the community group running costs. Booking will be necessary with charges at £5 per person for Birds & Brunch. For enquiries or bookings contact Gary Lowe on 01394 411203 or e-mail gary.lowe1957@btinternet.com.
  • Apple Day, we hope this year will have a good enough harvest, in anticipation we have provisionally booked the apple press, apple dryer and peelers for Saturday 12 October so hold that date and pray for a mild spring

The community group received a few suggested amendments to the Welcome Pack. A revised version is now available. We want to keep this document up to date and accurate, so suggestions for further changes are always welcome.

For those interested in switching to a green energy provider, please consider using Co-operative Energy. Speak to Andrew on 411720 or e-mail Boyton.co2@btinternet.com for more information. It is possible you and the community group could each make £25 from switching, as well as benefiting from a greener tarrif.

Finally, in our last article, we asked whether there was any interest in setting up a pig project. That did not provoke much reaction but there does seem to be some interest in setting up a Boyton Beekeepers group. Get in touch with Gary, as above, if you want to know more.

For more information, including copies of the Welcome Pack, minutes of meetings and much more of interest, visit the group’s website, as above.

The next meeting will be on Saturday 30 March at Chesterfield Lodge, Boyton, starting at 10.00am and hopefully finishing by noon.
