Dawn Chorus Walk

Our ever-popular Dawn Chorus Walk returns this spring on Sunday 10th April. Led by naturalist and broadcaster, Ed Drewitt (https://www.eddrewitt.co.uk), we will gather in the silence and dark of pre-dawn in order to experience the sights and sounds of our local woodland wildlife waking up. We take a short walk through the woodland, pausing frequently to listen to the birds, before returning to the Village Hall for tea/coffee and pastries. We usually identify 25-30 different species of birds, making our woodland a very species-rich environment in which to experience the Dawn Chorus. 

Price £12.50, to include refreshments.

This event is organised by the village Footpath Group. Places are limited and demand is always high so you’re advised to register your interest early. Please email Jane on the_gilliards@hotmail.com to reserve your place.

Land Opposite Village Hall

The Village Hall Committee have received a number of queries regarding the use of the gravelled area opposite the village hall. This land is not owned by the village hall and as such, the Hall Committee has no authority or influence over its use or condition. We believe that this land forms part of the highway and therefore owned by Monmouthshire County Council.

For clarity, the trustees of the village hall (the Committee) only have responsibility for the hall buildings and immediate car park, within the hall boundary. Our remit is governed in legislation by our charity status.

The Committee are often asked to either run or sanction events in the village that do not directly involve the hall buildings. Whilst we are generally supportive of these events and may volunteer to help as individuals, we do not have the authority to permit or refuse such events.

Whilst the members of the Committee are not experts on all matters concerning the village, we will try to provide help or advice wherever we can.
