Our lovely Glebe Meadow is maintained by volunteers from Starston and more widely.  

Volunteers in the mowing team cut the grass on a weekly rota, using a ride-on mower.  At other times, we keep the hedges, banks of the Beck and trees safe but natural.  Others look after the bees.  We meet as a group a few times a year and people join us when they can.  Thank you everyone.

If you would like to help in any way during the year, including spending an hour on the mower, then please get in touch.

Saturday 8th February. The East Anglia Potato Day is an annual event and 2020 is its 25th year. It is one of the few events in the country dedicated to the humble potato. This is a popular event with people queuing from as early as 8.30 am – some to get their seed potatoes for the rest of the year. In 2019 there was over 80+ varieties with approximately 25% of them produced organically. Seed potatoes are sold per tuber at 18p each

Thank you to everyone who bought cakes and tea or made donations at the Sale in the Jubilee Hall at the end of November. The proceeds went to sponsor my son’s marathon in aid of Asthma UK. We raised over £100 so thank you all for your support.

The marathon is in April so if anyone would still like to sponsor Chris then please go to https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=ChrisBrooks16&pageUrl=1 This page also explains why this cause is so important to my family. Many thanks
