A Love of Travel – and Warthogs

A Love of Travel – and Warthogs

My name is Sheena Wateridge. I was born in Kent, my parents came from north-west Scotland and I have now lived in Starston since 2019. However, I have been fortunate enough to travel widely and for 20 years of my life I lived in Africa, a time that I really enjoyed and it was there […]

Footpath from Wind Pump to Beck Cottages

The footpath from the wind pump to Beck Cottages has been ploughed up and no longer exists. In order to get through you have to tramp across a furrowed field which is very hard going. I thought ploughing up footpaths was illegal.

When you are out and about in Starston please keep to the authorised  footpaths – there are maps showing all the legal paths on the village website:  https://bit.ly/2xlPOgc In this fine weather many people are getting exercise where they can but a number of people have been going off the proper paths and using farm […]
