Kingsley Village
in the heart of Cheshire

Graham Warburton

Firstly, many apologies for there not being any Farm Update for some time. It has been a very busy summer, both on and off the farm.

We started harvesting our early potatoes on 6th May this year. This is as early as we have ever started, and surprising because we had such a cold wet spring. After last year’s disastrous potato harvest, when big yields and potato blight caused the price to crash early in the year (and never recovered), we needed a good start this year. The price at our farm shop remained stable for quite a while. The cold spring followed by a dry May delayed potato development. Big yields are no good in early potatoes, because everyone wants small sweet new potatoes.

The September litter pick had 7 of our team collected 10 bags of litter. Yet again most of the litter was to be found on Kingsley's through roads.

 

Thank you to those who pick up litter and help to keep our village tidy. The next litter picks will be on Saturday Saturday 10th October Saturday 21st November.

 

Could you give an hour once a month to help keep our village clean and tidy?

New helpers are always welcome.

We provide all the equipment needed.

It seems that as a result of the number of representations made by local Parish Councils and residents the Planning Inspector has decided that the two appeals will be decided after a local hearing and not simply by written representations alone.. Residents will have the ability to make personal representations at the hearing or simply attend all or part of this important appeal which ,if permitted, could have a serious impact on traffic through the village for the next few years.

 

The hearing will take place on 11th November 2015 at Wyvern House, The Drumber, Winsford, CW7 1AH. from 9.30 am onwards.
