Plant Sale for Willen Hospice

Joy Shirley and Ruth Stokes are so pleased to announce the amazing result of their Plant Sale held in Cosgrove Village Hall on 1st June.  It was a wonderful occasion so well supported by everyone and hopefully such fun for everyone too.  Refreshments were also provided this year together with cakes and Jams for sale which boosted the takings to a magnificent £1,100.00 total.  This has now been sent to Willen Hospice for their use.
​May I take this opportunity of thanking everyone concerned in making this such a successful day, from those who grew and donated plants, made cakes and jams, and the many of you who helped set up and sell the goods on the day, and of course to all of you who bought the plants.
Happy gardening and see you next year.

Grazing cattle near Public Rights of Way

Cattle with calves are now grazing in fields with Public Rights of Way. Cattle are inquisitive animals and are often attracted to walkers, especially if walking a dog. Please consider using alternative routes if you're unsure or you notice that the cattle are excited by your presence.


With increasing volumes of traffic through the village it is vital that pavements and paths are kept clear, and pedestrians not forced to walk in the road. 
Concerns have been raised at the March Parish Council about vehicles being parked inconsiderately. In one location vehicles are forced over the centre white line when passing the vehicle.
Vehicles parked near to the crossroads create blind spots for drivers, as it's impossible to see if a vehicle is approaching from the opposite direction.
The Parish Council appreciate that parking is difficult, but appeals to everyone to consider whether their parked vehicle creates an unnecessary hazard.  Please check that your vehicle is parked as safely as possible and that you've checked if another location may be safer for everyone.
