The place for villagers (and others) to post comments, complaints, suggestions and ideas for improving Torver.

Bulb Planting on the Motorway
Saturday 11th November
Click on the picture for larger image.

The first bulb planting session was a great success with tulips and daffies around the 40MPH sign on the south side.  There were four of us, led by Mark and including Peter and his lovely granddaughter Lucy WHO IS FIVE (she proudly told me).  
Thank you Lucy, you're a star.

The north side is being left for the moment in the hope that BT/Openreach will come back and sort out the absolute mess they've made of the verge. They have been approached.  Further planting sessions will be announced through the Nobbut.  If you can help we'll be delighted to see you there.
