A round up on the Trust projects
Keep up to date with the latest news about the Development Trust projects.
Sedgefield Farmers’ Market Sunday 4th October
Despite the difficulties of Covid19, the last Market was a successful and, we believe, a safe one. We’ve had no reports of virus transmission, and it was clear to see that everyone was showing thought and care for other folks.
September wasn’t quite up to pre-pandemic size but it was cheering to see the winter veg back on sale and great to welcome La Chocolatrice - ‘delicious’ was the verdict in our house! This month the Bees of Hardwick pay us a rare visit, with local honey and other bee related products. It will sell quickly!
With the recent rise in the number of infections and new restrictions imposed in our region we must continue to be cautious. As I write, the Market on 4th October will go ahead, but please do keep an ear tuned in case that has to change. We will redouble our safety efforts, so hopefully we can deliver another safe and sustaining Market.
If anything changes, the news will go out on the Sedgefield Farmers Market Facebook page and on Twitter @sedgyfarmmarket. Meanwhile we’ll keep up the info on stalls as it comes through and hope for a sunny morning so that standing in a socially distanced queue isn’t too uncomfortable!
Thank you for loving and supporting our market. You make it worth doing.
Keep up-to-date with any late additions or changes on Facebook @sedgyfarmmarket.
Last chance to catch this auction.
This registration period closes on the 5th October. At previous auctions some people have missed out because their registration submissions have been incomplete, probably because of not having the necessary information to hand, so please note the following and have it available before starting your registration.
As well as personal details you need to know who is your existing supplier, when your tariff ends and how much Gas and Electricity you use annually.
All this information can be found on your latest or your annual energy statement.
If you need more information, find us at the SDT stall during Farmers Market.
Woodland & Wildlife
Volunteers are delighted to be back in action. We’ve had a couple of working sessions and even carried out a bat survey. It’s been interesting to observe the changing flora and fauna on site over the past few months and we look forward to further activities.
If you would like to know more about the project contact firstname.lastname@example.org or join our facebook page Woodland & Wildlife – Sedgefield.
Sedgefield BUG on a roll!
Following the official launch of the Sedgefield Bicycle Users Group last month, we have been delighted to see the Facebook page reach 70 members already. We spoke to lots of people at the September Farmers’ Market (right) and our two petitions, one to improve the A689 Cycle path to Wynyard and the other in favour of a 20mph zone across the village, each received over 70 signatures.
Several BUG members met up for the Cycling UK Big Bike Ride on 12th September and rode a long loop through Trimdon, up to Quarrington Hill and back to the village via Coxhoe. Everyone enjoyed a well earned coffee afterwards.
We were delighted to see that with the support of the council the cycle track has been properly mowed and cleared to allow easier riding to Castle Eden Walkway, and discussions are due to take place around further work soon.
The BUG aims to be a focus for all forms of Active Travel and we welcome anyone who is interested in getting around on foot as well as by bike.
Please get involved with the discussion by joining the Facebook page - search for Sedgefield Bicycle Users Group. Follow us on Twitter @SedgefieldBUG or email us at SedgefieldBUG@gmail.com.
