(December 2003) Miriam Tebbs land

Sibford Gower Parish Council Meeting – 14th November 2003

The Councillors extend their thanks to those residents who responded to a previous article in the Sibford Scene where thoughts were sought as to the way forward with the land bequeathed by the late Miriam Tebbs when she expressed the wish that it be used for the enjoyment of residents. The few views received were quite divergent and the Councillors decided to take a middle path and leave some of the land as a wildlife sanctuary but the rest cleared so that the bench with the commemorative plaque will be accessible to those who wish to use it. Attention will be given to the bordering hedge and replacement of a damson tree. The work will be put in hand as soon as practicably possible.
