Clement Court

Alphonsus HouseFollowing consultation with EHDC relating to the name of the former Darcy House site (currently being marketed as Pemberley Place), the Parish Council agreed that other historical names of significance to the village should be celebrated and preserved in history, thus continuing the existing village traditions that gave us names such as Wolf's Lane and Alphonsus House.

The result is Clement Court - named to celebrate the life of Captain Clement RN who fought in the battle of Copenhagen and once lived at Alphonsus House, (pictured). This is particularly significant due to the proximity of Alphonsus House to the development.

 

Litter collection

A big thank you from the organisers of the open gardens event, the parish council and EHDC to everyone who turned out for the litter collection event ahead of the open gardens, next weekend.

There were around 25-30 people involved ranging from local children through to a number of older members of the community. The initial team at 10:00 is shown below.
