Good morning fellow Scarecrows, Great podcast Adrian

The sun is shining its a beautiful day if you listen carefully you can just about hear the sea 😂 .... so glad i booked my holiday to Costa Del Chelveston last year
[07:52:35] Resident038:

😂😂😂 Morning! Such a beautiful day today.
[07:53:01] Resident097:

Can you hear the waves too flick
[07:53:32] Resident038:

Oh for sure!!!!
[07:54:08] Resident097:

Thats good to know for a minute there i thought i was going mad
[07:54:51] Resident038:

[08:03:51] Resident097:

Ok heres a random one from your caring scarecrow in the community

Playparks ...... why doesnt Chelveston have one ... ?

Yes i know Chelston Rise does i believe it was part of the development

But the issue is its almost inaccessible to Chelveston Residents due to the fact there is no Safe way to get there from this end and its one hell of a trek with a buggy after you walked there and back kids are knackered out after running around etc etc

So ill prob get shot down for this ...

Does Chelveston need a small play park too ..., Is there area to accomodate this, if so would it benefit the smaller people of the village with a few Swings a roundabout and other stuff, it gets them out again into the fresh air away from the TVs etc

As a community is this something my fellow scarecrows would like to see ?
Is there space to accomodate such a thing ? Ie Village hall or a spare piece of PC land thats not in use... or even a plot of land that could be aquired or donated for such a cause ... a plot we could fundraise for etc

Feedback please ...

Love ya all
[08:13:52] Resident131:

Pete, re the footpath between The Crescent and the village, Bob is on to this and will be liaising with Mark Hunter for guidance, watch this space 😁
[08:17:19] Resident131:

Adrian, thanks for mention in the newsletter. If anyone is thinking of selling in the village please please do let us know. Looking for something older (the older the better) and somewhere tucked away. Renovation project would be fabulous. Thank you everyone xx

Report in Times Today - an American study has just been published showing that someone speaking loudly, without a mask, projects a mist of droplets that can hang in the air for up to 14 minutes!
[08:22:48] Resident097:

Thats half of america stuffed then 🤣🤣 especially if they been supporting trump
[08:24:00] Adrian Dale:

[09:31:24] Resident093:

Further to Adrian's comments about the quad biker, did anyone else see the green scrambler going up the track from Disbrow Court towards the allotments yesterday, late afternoon?
[09:36:14] Resident138:

Not yesterday, there was a green scrambler doing wheelie in water lane Saturday around 5.30-6pm and another youngster. At least both had helmets on
[09:43:30] Resident040:

[09:43:42] Resident097:

Further to my post yesterday about re-establishing your local garage
I will as of this week be undertaking mechanical work from home again with more heavier stuff being done at my Sharnbrook base... following this over the next 6 Months we plan to have our workshop here built so will be able to accommodate up to 3.5t

For those that dont know of me already I ran as Venture Performance for the last 8yrs then changed to A6 Recovery and Salvage

Heres some reviews from the last few years of our work, all be it some of these reviews are from a while back as many of you will be aware i concentrated more on the Recovery side of the business which meant i had more home time whilst my partner cath was pregnant with littleun.

We pride ourselves in being a professional, Honest and reliable garage with our customers in mind, we dont charge outrageous prices and offer value for money and are competitive on our prices without compromising on quality or service.

[10:32:48] Resident130:

Living at the Ford end of Water Lane, the noise from motor bikes roaring along the B645 yesterday, was constant. It has been noticeably quieter during lockdown but I suppose they are no longer having to stay at home?
[10:34:31] Resident097:

[10:44:37] Resident078:

A pocket park would be a lovely idea. We have lots more “little people” about in the village nowadays. The danger is teenagers congregating so may have to be policed
[10:45:36] Adrian Dale:

Tulips sold out in Caldecott- still a few bunches left in Chelston Rise and Chelveston
[10:47:36] Resident023:

[10:48:19] Resident097:

Agreed would need to be placed somewhere that Antisocial Behaviour would be restricted maybe near the Village Hall or somewhere that a CCTV could be installed to provide cover of the area. What we dont want is it becoming a hive for older kids to cause issues or a pottential Drug user den.
[10:50:05] Resident117:

Beautiful tulip called Catherine.
[10:50:20] Resident117:

[10:51:34] Resident054:

Very good! I couldn't think of anything witty at the time 😂 They've been moved and are now on display in top window for everyone in Duchy Close to enjoy.
[10:52:31] Resident117:

High Tricia. Much the same here in High Street. Dad calls it the sound of summer!!☹️
[10:53:44] Resident025:

Love your Tuloolip arrangement 😃🌷🌷
[10:56:57] Resident039:

[10:59:01] Resident117:

Trump says that's fake news!
[11:00:05] Resident130:

Hi Sharen, one yesterday afternoon sounded like a large truck with serious exhaust problems - probably a knackered moped!
[11:00:22] Resident097:

Try having Carrots for fingers and a Parsnip for a nose !!

Looks good

[11:02:09] Resident097:

Theres a Honda Civic been going through the village last few days about 4pm with a Cherrybomb Exhaust.... Sounds horrible 🤣🤣 like f#rt in a bakebean tin
[11:02:29] Resident087:

Hi all would love a park in the village, also the manor school bus from September is only stopping at chelston rise? No safe access for my son to walk to get the bus as we live in high street- not ideal for us without a safe footpath.....
[11:04:32] Resident117:

I've noticed there seems to be a few noisy cars recently coming past usually about 5 o'clock one after the other.
[11:06:19] Resident097:

Uhoh what have i started..... Worzille for Mayor !! First a scarecrow comp ... now a playpark..... tomorrow the world 🤣
[11:06:39] Resident136:

Michelle the Manor school bus used to stop in the village, might be worth asking them to drop him off outside home, it's hardly out of their way is it?? There was talk of w play area for the children years ago when mine were young but because of all the health and safety involved the cost would have been horrendous
[11:07:37] Resident130:

We did try to make the rough land by the Ford a Pocket Park some years ago - without success.
[11:09:46] Resident097:

What was the reason dor failure if you dont mind me asking... pm me if easier
[11:14:46] Resident136:

When we looked into it, we had to have special flooring so the kiddies wouldn't get too hurt if they fell off the equipment, liability insurance, and the play equipment had to meet very high standards and regulations, the total cost would have been around £30K if I remember rightly, and that's going back probably 20 years so it would be a lot more now, plus it would need maintaining properly so we gave up on the idea.
[11:17:32] Resident051:

I think there was similar response in more recent years too when mine was a bit younger.
[11:17:45] Resident097:

Technology has moved on a lot in 20 years though, with the right contacts anythings possible .... most playpark flooring is made from Recycled Tyre Materials or Bark... we have a tyre recycling plant less than a mile away from the village, Wickstead play equipment still make play equipment and I have contacts there
[11:20:24] Resident097:

Public liability would be the thing ... but there must be some sort of Public Liability or Disclaimer in place with the play equipment at Chelston Rise... who does the Maintenance there...
[11:20:43] Resident023:

[11:21:14] Resident136:

Don't know, try speaking to Adrian about it, he would know
[11:23:12] Resident097:

I think i gave him enough work with the Scarecrow comp 🤣
[11:24:22] Resident136:

He thrives on it, although he might not agree with me saying it
[11:24:41] Resident113:

Michelle, mine go to the Ferrers and the council provide a taxi to collect from the post box in the village. If you speak direct with the council they have to provide it and it has to be safe. So if Manor wont do it for whatever reason they need to sort it. Hope this helps. X
[11:27:25] Resident051:

I thought the Manor bus was privately funded and stopped where necessary. It’s always stopped until recently by the post box as well. I presume you’ve spoken to the school Michelle? Resident050 do you have any contacts at Manor?
[11:33:05] Resident087:

Yes I’ve spoken with the school, they don’t seem to aware of the distance/lack of access !!!!!!! I have been told they can look into it but not sure they can help!!!!!! I wanted him to have a bit of independence by going on the bus and maybe meet some kids in the village to play out with in the summer!!!! I’ll try the council thanks for that!
[11:37:37] Resident051:

Secondary school transport has been the bane of my life for the last 7 years - I don’t envy you starting all that!
