Editorial Nettleham are ot in the first round of the Best Kept Village this year. A
disappointment after winning it last. The Parish Council are aware of a few black spots and are trying to get these improved before the 1985 judges appear. A tidy front garden is the only thing really asked for - so much the better if you can make it attractive as well!
The front cover for this issue has been produced by a teenager - Miss Sarah Howsam of Brookfield Avenue. I should welcome further contributions from the younger fraternity in the village.
In the magazine there is the very sad reference to miniature shrubs on a young person's grave that have been removed. Since that report was prepared it is even worse to record that the headstone has been interfered with. Whoever is responsible please - No further activity.
I do ask again for the many organisations in the village to let me know of forthcoming events for the Diary page. It advertises your function, but more important it helps others to avoid your dates when they are planning their activities.
54, Brookfield Avenue, Nettleham.
Parish Council News
G.F. Clarke Editor
Nettleham Parish Council continues to press for a weight restriction on vehicles passing through the village, to operate simultaneously with the opening of the new Nettleham By-pass.
A Village Clock Committee has been set up. Members of the Parish Council, Parochial Church Council and residents, will investigate means of revitalising the Church Clock with an electric mechanism. Many rely on the clock - but these last few years its timekeeping has been only fitfully accurate - despite constant attention from Geoffrey and Margaret Parker and the bell ringers.
Nettleham was unsuccessful this year, in the C.P.R.E. "Best Kept Village" competition.
The new chairman of Nettleham Fieldpaths Committee is Mr. Ken Lawson, 31, Dalderby Crescent, Nettleham Tel: 752705. The next meeting of the committee will take place on Thursday, 6th December, 7.30 p.m. at the Pavilion, Mulsanne Park.
Twelve years old Nature Conservationist, Vicky Woods of Beck House, called in at the September meeting of the Parish Council, to thank Councillors for their interest and assistance with her Mini Meadow project. Vicky has already identified several species of field flowers there.
Before lighting your garden bonfire, please consider wind direction and your neighbours' comfort and safety.
Cars parked tightly without lights, on either side of narrow and quite busy estate roadways, might well cause an accident. Please consider this, especially when parking on the 'bus route, but in any case your car would be less of a hazard in your driveway, especially overnight.
Appeal RICKY WOOD who spent most of his life in Nettleham had a car accident in Kampala,
Uganda, Africa on 18th December, 1982, and in spite of being flown home to England to two London hospitals, he died on Christmas Day 1982.
The funeral was at Nettleham Parish Church followed by cremation and his ashes were buried in the churchyard.
On 3 separate occasions small miniature shrubs have been stolen from his grave and John, Helga and Antony WOOD would ask that whoever is doing this to stop and think of the distress and unhappiness caused to them when they see the damage done to this memorial of their son Ricky.
In Your Garden September
This month is the last chance to apply weed and feed to lawns before growth stops. Continue Dead-heading annuals to maintain blooms, cut back perennials to obtain
bushy plants to stand through Winter. Check stakes and ties to Dahlia, Chrysanthemums etc. to prevent wind damage. Root cuttings of Fiberous Begonia, Geranium, Fuchsias, Pinks, Carnations,
Calceolaria and rockery plants, taken now and rooted in a mixture of peat and sand will make good growth before Winter and can be overwintered in a cool greenhouse or frame until next Spring.
As space becomes available in borders gently fork over the soil apply a dressing of Bone or Hoof and Horn Meal, before planting bulbs such as Crocus, Daffodils, Hyacinths and Narcissus, Tulips can be left until November before setting out.
Plant out Wallflowers. Polyanthus and Primroses can now be lifted and split to make fresh plants for next Spring.
As frost cuts back foliage on Gladiolus, Dahlias lift and dry ready for storing in either dry peat or sand in a frost free place.
TREES AND SHRUBS
SEPTEMBER This is a good month to plant hedges of Evergreen Shrubs, such as Conifers (including Yew ) Holly Box and Privet.
Matured Hedges will benefit from a final trimming towards the end of the month. Prepare sites for planting decorative trees, shrubs and roses by double digging
and adding plenty of well rotted manure. Dead head roses to ensure further flowers, tie up shoots of climbing plants and
shrubs treated as climbers to supports. Remove weeds regularly, especially before they start to seed, but take care to
hoe shallowly so as not to disturb plant roots.
OCTOBER/NOVEMBER Spray Peach, Nectarine and Cherry against leaf curl and bacterial canker.
Set out new shrubs on prepared ground, deciduous shrubs can be planted anytime during the Winter provided the soil is workable and the weather conditions suitable.
Sweep or rake up fallen leaves as necessary for compost, do not compost any rose leaves infected with Black Spot, these should be burnt.
Check plant supports of trees, shrubs and climbers to ensure they are sound.
SEPTEMBER Sow Spring Cabbage and Red Cabbage. Plant out - Winter Lettuce, Spring Cabbage ( sown in August ) Harvest - Outdoor Tomatoes ( ripen off indoors ) ,
Marrows, Runner Beans, Beetroot, Cucumbers and Onions ( hang up and keep dry ) .
Cut off Potato tops and burn avoiding blight Earth up Celery and Leeks ( to get a nice white stem )
OCTOBER Sow under cloches - Cauliflowers, Winter Lettuce, Sow in open Broad Beans and Winter Hardy Peas. Plant - Spring Cabbage, Rhubarb crowns. Harvest - Store, Freeze and Pickle - Beet, Carrots, Turnips, Potatoes, Cabbage,
Beans, Peas, Swedes, use up small Onions for pickling. General tidy up plot - burn rubbish and infected plants. Start digging and
