Warning – Children Playing

 

The warning sign has been relocated – we hope this will encourage motorists to take care when approaching the Village Hall entrance. Children may be coming out without looking!

Percy the peacock

Thanks to Sally Blyth for sending this pic of Percy posing for her. She says “Here is the latest resident of Honingham. Nobody seems to know who owns him, but while he is here perhaps we should enjoy seeing him (although he is rather noisy!)

There have been reports of people throwing stones at him and even a car being driven straight at him when he was crossing the road. He is a beautiful bird and it would be very sad if he was killed deliberately”

 

Thanks Ted – strimmer extraordinaire!

Many thanks to Ted for strimming the public right of way to allow us all to walk without being mobbed by weeds!

Berry Bridge sluice

The Environment Agency have decided to remove the sluice and allow the Tud to become a natural waterway. Some concrete will be left so as not to compromise the structure of the bridge itself.

What next???? Ode to the disappearing Honingham

 

 

 

 

 

 

The school and shop have been long gone 

Here’s a little photo to think upon – 

Opposite the pub that has no beer 

A telephone box that no-one can hear 

An ancient pump that won’t give a drop 

And a bus stop where no buses stop. 

Near a Bowls Club the village won’t use- 

That may be the next thing we’ll lose!
