Three out of our six nests for house martins have been occupied this year with eggs hatched and the young ones fledged. There must be many more locally as lots can be seen on the telephone lines some mornings preparing for their emigration. On the subject of wildlife, badgers have been seen down the track by the pond, robins are singing in the hedgerows and rabbits and squirrels are keeping dogs and their walkers excited. Nature is carrying on as normal around Cadmore End.
The Cricket Club has been very active in the short season with the ground prepared on weekday evenings and lively weekend matches. There have been problems with parking and litter which have and are being addressed.
One Can Trust Donations
Do continue to put food donations in the boxes in the Church Porch on Thursday each week which we take to High Wycombe on Friday mornings and are gratefully received.
The Trust is keen to promote and encourage donations of fresh produce in addition to their tinned and dried needs so any home grown or bought would be good. Last week they delivered food to 374 people compared with an average per week of 225 in March. They expect demand to increase with the ending of the furlough support scheme.
