Look Out for Ash Dieback

The Parish Council has begun a survey of trees in the parish which may have been infected by this fungal disease, but this is a very big undertaking and as much help from residents as possible would be greatly appreciated. It would help greatly if while you’re out walking, you would keep a lookout for any signs of disease in mature ash trees in and around the village (See http://stinchcombepc.co.uk/mitigating-ash-dieback-in-stinchcombe/ for more details and information on how to recognise it.) and let the Parish Council know (clerk@stinchcombepc.co.ukcreate new email) if you spot any trees you think are cause for concern. It is important to know where there are affected trees, both because of the potential danger of their falling and also because it may be possible to obtain funding for their replacement.  Enjoy your walks and thank you for keeping a lookout.

Upcoming Road Closure 20th July

The B4060 is due to be closed between Stancombe and North Nibley for bridge and retaining wall repair from 20th July to 7th August. It will be necessary to close the road completely to through traffic because of the excavation and size of machinery that will be used.

Parish Council Vacancy

Chris Snellock has recently stepped down from the Parish Council because of pressure of work and the Council would like to thank him for his valuable contribution over the last four years.

There is therefore now a vacancy for a new Councillor and this is an ideal opportunity for anyone who would like to take more part in village life – and perhaps a good way for someone new to Stinchcombe to become involved.

The response to Covid 19 in the village has been amazing with 35 people signing up to “do their bit” and it’s very encouraging to know that there is still such a community spirit here – is our next Parish Councillor in that group?
