Village Walk – with or without dogs!
On Saturday 3rd June a small group of village walkers, some with dog’s others without, gathered at the village sign at 9.30am for a gentle walk to Norton. The weather was perfect, and we had a lovely walk and a good chat in the garden of the Dog with coffee and cake. Followed by a gentle walk back.

We will endeavour to have another village walk over the summer and so if you are interested in joining us then please make contact.

Village Calendar:
We are planning a Stowlangtoft Village Calendar for 2024 and would like to hear from anyone who has a special picture of the village which could be used as part of the calendar.

Speed Awareness Scheme:
We have 9 willing volunteers from the village that are giving up the odd hour every couple of weeks to help build awareness of the speed limit through the village…. and it’s working! Should you be willing to join the speed watch volunteers please contact Rob Cuff in the email below.

The increased level of traffic through Kiln Lane and indeed the need for warning signs, road markings and potential speed limits have been discussed at Parish, District and County Council level. This together with the ongoing excessive surface water and potholes will continue to be raised with the relevant authorities.

Encouraging wildlife in our gardens

Its that time of year when wildflowers, grasses and natural habitat are very much appreciated by the new wildlife entering our world, so don’t be is too much of a rush to cultivate every inch of your garden!! A small patch of natural vegetation will be appreciated by young birds and insects I’m sure.
