Lime tree works

Lime tree works

Work has just been carried out on the lime tree on the village green. The crown and side branches have been trimmed by a couple of metres which will reduce the weight and leverage and minimise the risk of limbs falling. This venerable tree was planted as a sapling to mark Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee back in 1897 and with regular maintenance will hopefully continue to stand for a good while yet.

Drainage news

Fri, 14 Apr 2017 12:44 by Janet Taylor

Rutland County Council have been busy recently addressing the various drainage problems in the village. The jetter has cleared the gullies along Church St which were badly blocked with silt, and also the gully opposite the Old Plough which was blocked with willow roots; RCC will monitor this area to check that all the roots have been removed. Other gullies in the village have also been cleared. Hopefully this will improve surface drainage and prevent flooding when it rains heavily.There is a another drain clearance scheduled for July.

Thanks to Ruth McNeil at RCC for sorting this for us. » Less
