The Nightingales are back!
I was afraid we had lost them (again). When we first arrived in the village, in the early '70s, and old man told me how he was employed as a youngster to throw stones at the nightingales down by the river because they made such a noise at night. Sadly they disappeared in the '80s, but still sang on Martin Down. But this year I recorded one at another place, in Dorset.
Please don't throw out anything that still works until you have advertised it on Freecycle - it's surprising just how useful your redundant items are!

Fast Broadband has gone live!
Our fibre-to-the-cabinet has now gone live, and we can choose our speed up to 80Mb! (at a price, of course). Mine's up and running very satisfactorily. See here
