FARMING ISSUES

All   backyard   poultry   keepers    across   England   are   required   by law   to   take   action   to   reduce   the   risk   of   disease   spreading. Follow   our   guide   below   to   find   out   how   to   keep   your   birds safe. Your   flock   is   still   at   risk   from   avian   influenza   -   find   out   how   to keep your birds safe by referring to NFU guidance. Horticulture With     several     local     horticultural     specialist     growers     it     is important   to   note   that,   until   now,   nursery   growers   growing wholly    or    mainly    under    cover    have    been    under    threat    of having   to   pay   business   rates    following   a   court   of   appeal   case in   2015   which   held   they   did   not   qualify   for   the   agricultural exemption.     On     30     March     Marcus     Jones ,     the     minister responsible   for   business   rates   in   Department   of   Communities and   Local   Government   (DCLG,)   made   a   statement   to   say   that in   light   of   the   importance   of   the   agricultural   exemption   and the   impact   on   the   cost   of   farming,   plant   nurseries   should benefit   from   the   exemption    and   that   government   intends   to amend the relevant legislation “at the soonest opportunity” .

Cassian’s Players

This      venerable      thespian      consortium      performed between   1963   and   1975   at   “The   Institute”   (the   Village Hall   by   its   original   name),   at   the   old   Kidderminster Playhouse    and    at    the    ‘Theatre    on    the    Steps’    at Bridgnorth,    led    and    directed    by    the    indomitable Rosemary Brinton-Butler.   The      society      re-formed      in      the      90’s      and performed   Nativity   plays   in   St.   Cassian’s   church,   then branching-out   into   more   modern   genres   involving   a newer generation.   To   get   some   idea   of   their   past   successes,   visit www.cassianplayers.co.uk   They     are     currently     fund-raising     to     place     a commissioned   piece   of   stained-glass   by   Keith   Brettle in the St. Nicholas chapel in memory of RB-B. The 2017 production is the Nativity Play. Contact Richard Vale if you are interested in taking part.

FUTURE OF THE OLD GRAMMAR SCHOOL

As   local   residents   know,   the   Trustees   of   the   Chaddesley   Corbett Educational   Foundation   (“CCEF”)   have   been   looking   at   bringing the    Old    Grammar    School    building    (“the    OGS”)    next    to    St. Cassian’s church into use as a community hall. However,   it   is   now   clear   that   it   is   going   to   cost   a   great   deal more money than it was originally thought would be needed. Before   the   Trustees   commit   over   £100,000   to   the   project,   we need   to   make   sure   that   there   really   is   a   demand   for   a   new community   hall   in   the   village   and   that   investing   so   much   is   in accordance   with   the   rules   governing   charities   such   as   the   CCEF. The    Trustees    cannot    simply    refurbish    the    OGS    and    make    it available    to    the    community    without    getting    a    return    on    its investment.   The   alternative   to   use   as   a   community   hall   would be    to    seek    planning    permission    for    an    alternative    use    that would benefit the local community and the CCEF. The Trustees need to know whether:    Any   group   or   person   will   commit   to   taking   a   lease   of   3   years or   more   on   a   refurbished   OGS   to   run   it   as   a   community   hall   for the   benefit   of   the   local   community   and   what   terms/rent   might be acceptable.    Any   local   groups   or   persons   will   undertake   to   use/book   a refurbished   OGS   on   a   regular   or   occasional   basis   and   what booking fee would be acceptable. All   interested   persons   or   groups,   and   members   of   the   local     community,   are   invited   to   attend   a   public   meeting    with   the Trustees    on    Monday    8th    May    at    7.00pm    at    St    Cassian’s Church, Chaddesley Corbett. Further   information   can   be   obtained   from   Hugh   Richards,    the Chairman   of   Trustees:   email   hugh.richards517@btinternet.com   or telephone 01562 777136.

Beating the Bounds

Would    you    like    to    come    on    a    lovely    walk    and continue    the    ancient    annual    tradition    of    'Beating the Bounds'?

SUNDAY MAY 14th 2017

9am until about 4.30pm

We    will    walk    the    16    or    so    miles     around    the boundary   of   Chaddesley   Corbett   Parish   and   have   a picnic lunch somewhere on the way round. You   don’t   have   to   walk   it   all   just   do   as   much   as   you feel able.  Finish where and when you will. It’s   not   arduous,   just   a   long   way;   so   prepare   for   all conditions! It's   lovely   to   use   some   different   footpaths   and   see some maybe unfamiliar parts of your locality. Please   call   into   the   flower   room*   or   phone   me   on 777   808    to   put   you   name   on   the   list   and   find   out where we will start. Helen
