Tree planting ideas for Platinum Jubilee wanted
2022 marks the Queen's 70th Jubilee celebrations. Communities around the country are being encouraged to "Plant a tree for the jubilee". This 'Queen's Green Canopy' will see hundreds of trees planted to benefit the environment and provide a fitting legacy to honor the occasion. Tree planting season starts in October so we are seeking ideas from residents of Little Wolford on what tree to plant and where.
If you'd like to be part of the tree planting committee or submit an idea contact Helen Bostock by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
(ps who knows where the Silver Jubilee tree is in the village as seen in the photo above? Hint: it's an oak tree)

Your police, your views
Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe wants to hear from the public about the future of policing in the county, as he launches a major new consultation ahead of deciding how funding should be prioritised in the year ahead.
The ‘Your Police, Your Views’ survey aims to get opinions from all parts of Warwickshire on how local people feel money should be spent on policing and community safety, including what types of initiatives should be financed through grants and commissioned services.
The questions also give the opportunity for people living and working in the county to provide further feedback on policing and community safety, to help understand the Commissioner understand what they feel works well and also what needs improvement.
The results will help inform the budget setting process for the 2021/22 financial year.
The survey is open now and will run until early January 2021 at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WPFundingSurvey
Heritage tree planting on the Green
A trio of apple trees have been planted on the Green, to add seasonal interest to the area and, in time, provide fruit for both passerbys and wildlife.
The trees were sourced from Heritage Fruit Trees in Banbury. Two have connections to Warwickshire: ‘Wyken Pippin’, a yellow-skinned eating apple found at Wyken near Coventry around 1700 and ‘Leathercoat Russet’, an English eating variety originating from 1600, referenced in Shakespeare’s “Falstaff”. The third tree is a red-fruited crabapple, called Malus kirghisorum, originating from Kazakhstan.
Defibrillator now installed
This week the electrician came to install the defibrillator. The unit is located on the exterior wall of the Wolfords Village Hall and signs have gone up around the village to help direct people in case of emergency. This is a great achievement and a life-saving asset for our community.
