The rural Community Energy Fund exists to help rural communities in England to develop renewalable energy projects. The Chedworth Environment Group has arranged an open meeting on Saturday, 26th April, in the Village Hall. Do come along and find out more about the fund and how it can help improve the green energy credentials of our village.

Common Toads are very particular about where they breed and follow the same migration route back to their ancestral ponds each year. If something is constructed in their path, they carry on regardless. Unfortunately, if this something is a road then the toads are at risk of being killed by traffic or becoming trapped in drains.
In the case of Chedworth the worst area is where the Chedworth stream meets the Fossebridge Inn lake – they lumber down the Chedworth valley to spawn here and, on a warm, mild night the road is covered with toads – usually dead.
Please watch out for signs warning about this and help reduce this impact on our toads.
Hedgley Bottom Pond Project
The Project progresses - dredging of the pond and the fencing is now complete. Next spring we will be asking for lots of volunteers to help continue the project.
