The South Hill Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has now been returned after being reviewed by an independent examiner. The comments that we received were very positive and there were no major changes to make to the policies.
The NDP team are now organising an event for March 4th 2017 at the Parish Hall. This will be a Free Big Breakfast starting at 9am for all residents. The final draft version of the Plan will be available to be viewed and the team will be there to answer any questions that you may have.
You can read the background to the NDP provided by the Parish Council on their website…

With Christmas fast approaching, now is the perfect time to think about making a few crafty gifts for loved ones. Personally, I just love receiving a homemade present as it is also a gift of the precious time it took to make, which is priceless given that we all lead such busy lives.

Well, what a busy time of year this is. All different types of agricultural activities happening; crop preparation, harvesting. As many are aware, the type of work which is to be carried out is solely dependent on the season and the weather. I am writing this article to explain what agricultural goings-on are happening here at Church Park, when, and why.
Now is the time to start thinking about what you may like to grow or make for this year’s 56th South Hill Horticultural Show.
Lamb Marrakesh, New Zealand Style
Don’t be tempted to leave out the garnish of toasted almonds on this spicy lamb stew. The crunchy nuts make a great contrast to meat and sauce.
