Oddie's field

Further to last month’s Gower Parish Council comments on vandalism in the Gower, may we bring to everyone’s attention the recent, extensive tree and hedge planting in Oddie’s Field. This planting will in time, we hope, bring pleasure to members of both village communities and enhance a part of the Sibfords so many enjoy. However, we have already had several trees and their supporting stakes vandalised by a small group of young people. As their activities were seen, we have been able to get the boys concerned to make good the damage they did. However, they have been told that any further damage will be reported to the Police.

Could we please emphasise the Scene’s request for everyone’s vigilance in such matters and ask everyone to share the responsibility for an amenity from which we can all benefit. It would be the greatest pity to have to fence off the footpath from the rest of Oddie’s Field (tobogganing would never be the same!) but if our efforts to beautify the field and encourage wildlife in the valley are to be thwarted, we shall feel obliged to do so.

Perhaps the Friends’ School will also join us in encouraging everyone to keep to the footpath – which is, after all, the only public right of way within the field.

LEO Club

A small group met at The Court House on Tuesday 21st April and were most interested to see a Video on Microwave Ovens and Microwave Cookery. For those of us with Microwave Ovens we were given many new ideas, and for those who do not yet own one, they may soon do so! Our thanks to Mrs. Warwicker for organising the evening and for her hospitality.

It will take a while, but we’re gradually building up this archive of complete copies of all editions of the Sibford Scene since its inception in 1977.

Above, we’ve copied out one or two items that may be of historical interest. To see the whole edition, click on the front-page image to download it as a pdf.
