Bury Church Fete
Despite the drought we were experiencing, Bury Church Fete was sandwiched between the only two days of rain, until the weather broke recently. It wasn’t exactly ‘blue skies’ but dry and a good temperature.
The beer sold out just ten minutes before the end of it, so was perfectly timed. Once again, Bury was very appreciative that Dorset House School, that looks over the Arun Valley, let the village once again use their site. It is a wonderful setting for this annual event.
The Parish Council was unable to meet at the end of July as the meeting would not have been quorate.
We are hoping that this will be remedied by the volunteers that have stepped forward to replace the five vacant seats, by the next full meeting in September. The Council is very grateful to these volunteers who give up their time in order to represent the Parishioners at the Council Meetings.
Due to the weather, the summer growth has not been as rampant as normal, and we have managed to keep the footpaths and bridleways clear.
The Himalayan Balsam does not look as if it is going to be as bad this year. The grass around the wharf has been kept short, and this may have helped keep it at bay, however there now seems to be floating pennywort, which is invading the nearby pond.
