BHG is planning a parish history and will archive interviews and local photos like this one from Judith Morgan taken at the Scout Hut in the 1960s (?). Next meeting: The Volunteer, Saturday October 21 mid-day.
An urgent message from Mike Booth who is leading on the building of the labyrinth on the Bishops Meadows. The email address to contact him is firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, we’ve raised the money (thank you) and the Council have granted us a Licence (thank you). Its now up to us!
The Contractors are starting work tomorrow (Monday), preparing the ground for us to Lay the Labyrinth this coming weekend (30th and Oct 1st).
Are you free this weekend?
Would you like to help? Or do you know someone who would?
The work will be mainly trundling wheelbarrows around with small amounts of soil or gravel to fill in the pattern of the Labyrinth.
If you can help, please reply to this email and let me know:
1. How many of you? 2. Can you bring a wheelbarrow and/or a spade/shovel? 3. Which days or parts of days you can manage?
We will start at 10.00 on the Saturday and the Sunday. Lunch break 1.00 - 2.00. Toilets and refreshments will be available at the Leisure Pool or the Tennis Kiosk.
Looking forward to hearing from you and thank you for helping with this unique project for the people of Herefordshire.
Mike Booth The South Wye Development Trust.

The first part of the dig is coming to an end tomorrow, after a week of constantly changing ideas & interpretations.
More challenging & difficult to understand than anticipated, the feature is now stating to make a bit more sense.
Although the excavations are concluding & the trenches will be backfilled early next week, further work using augering will continue.
Tim has kindly offered to hold a brief open session at the site on Saturday morning (9/9) at 10am, for half an hour or so, to explain what has been found so far.
