Project Comes to a Close

The Yellow Land Natural Heritage Project offically comes to a close in March 2011. The project, which was funded by Heritage Lottery money, was an 18 month project and what an 18 months they have been! Chris Redstall, who was employed by the parish council as the project officer, left his post on 7 March. The Friends of the Yellow Land group of volunteers has been set up to follow in Chris's footsteps and to care for and maintain the area in the fuutre. This group will be co-ordinated by Pam Reason and will carry out practical work on site as well as running some events. If you would like to be involved please contact Pam on 01926 613300. For any general enquiries please contact the parish council on 01926 811394.

Young Darwin Prize

Open Day

A mild autumn day on 16th October, saw over hundred people visit the Yellow Land to take part in the offical opening celebrations. In addition to a variety of stalls selling tea to T-shirts, villagers could also express their artistic side in the creation of an oak seat, whilst children could create teasel hedgehogs or defy gravity on the bouncy castle!

Prize Winners!

Pupils from the Year 6 Nature Club made a video of their work on the Yellow Land. Their video was entered into the Young Darwing Prize, a national competition run by the London Natural History Museum. The group were runners up in their age category. Full details are given in the December Scene article opposite.


The finishing touches to the Yellow Land are now complete. They include a new interpretation board and two seats (one donated by Bishop's Itchington Women's Institute and one a carved oak bench). Take a look at the new stepping stone art installation designed and made by local teenagers with artist Ros Ingram.
