Fruit Trees Planted on Village Green

The Parish Council has had five flowering fruit trees planted on the front of the Village Green next to the bus shelter.

We want to continue to plant trees to fill in any gaps and replace older dead trees. The advantage of planting these popular varieties of edible fruit trees, including apples, plums and a cherry is that hopefully they will produce a good crop of fruit, which villagers can collect and enjoy for years to come.

Battle's Over Update

Stanbridge and Tilsworth Parish Councils are happy to announce that the BATTLE'S OVER event held on SUNDAY 11th NOVEMBER at the Community Hall to commemorate 100 years since the ending of World War 1 raised a total amount of £1833.  

A huge thank you to all those that attended and gave so generously but also to those that helped not only with their time,but also making donations in order to keep costs down. The evening was enjoyed by over 200 people and we thank you for your support and kind words. 

The money will be going to The British Legion, RAF Benevolent Fund, ABF Soldiers Charity, each will receive a cheque for £611. View some images from the evening.

The Parish council were all very impressed with the amount of work Finn Deville put into trying to establish if Stanbridge was indeed a Thankful village, as it had been suggested for many years, although never officialy listed. Whilst we were all naturally disappointed to no longer qualify, we all commend Finn's hard work to ensured that Frank Robinson will now be remembered as he should be. The village was able to remember Frank this year in the church service and during the commemorations last night. Finn's work can be found here. It's a really great read.
