FARMING ISSUES

UK farmers urged to be vigilant for BTV-8 Defra   is   urging   farmers   to   be   vigilant   for   signs   of   Bluetongue virus    (BTV)    and    consider    vaccinating    their    livestock    after Bluetongue    (BTV)    serotype    8    was    detected    in    cattle    in    a previously    disease-free    northern    France.    Areas    abutting    the Channel    in    Pas-de-Calais    and    west    of    Cherbourg    are    now affected - leaving the Seine estuary (Harfleur) still free . Horticulture The    Animal    and    Plant    Health    Agency    (APHA)    has    emailed importers    and    producers    of    petunia    plants    and    seeds    in England   and   Wales,   making   it   clear   that   GM   plants   must   not be marketed. Following   the   devastation   of   salad   crops   in   southern   European countries   it   is   pleasing   to   see   Tesco   take   advantage   of   iceberg lettuce   crop    bonus   in   the   UK   and   that   Tesco   are   working   with growers    to    utilise    crop    flushes    on    farm    and    demonstrating how retailers can work flexibly with suppliers.

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.

Point of View

I t   was   disappointing   to   see   so   few   parishioners   attending   the Annual   Parish   Meeting   on   the   15th   May   in   the   Village   Hall.   The meeting    had    good    content    and    was    very    informative    and interesting.   Our   Parish   Councillors   work   hard   and   give   freely   of their   own   time   to   serve   the   Parish   and   contrary   to   popular belief,   for   no   privileges.   Frankly   they   deserve   more   support than was evident at the meeting.
