A Little Light at the End of the Tunnel

Branches & Cloud, Low Hutton

You don't need me to tell you that it's been a long cold winter and that Spring is late coming, but as the clocks go forward and we get an extra hour of light in the evening the elements have relented and given us a sunny weekend to keep our spirits up.

Barns & Telephone Box, Low Hutton

And we are turning the corner: the world of wildlife is waking up, the other day a hedgehog wandered through our garden and yesterday on the lane I stood not four feet from a tiny wren busily foraging in the hedgerow. Today long tailed tits were ducking in and out of the bare hedges and chattering to each other.

Ploughed Field & Branches

Listen carefully and you'll hear the woodpeckers hammering away in the woods and soon, if we're lucky, the cuckoo will make its return.

It's been a quiet time for stories on the village website, so I thought I'd share a few pictures from St Margaret's Church, decorated for the Easter Sunday Communion Service (Sunday 31st March, 10 a.m.):

High Hutton Roadworks Completed

I ran into the Balfour Beattie representative yesterday and he told me (with some pride) that they have completed the water main works in record time - just four days when they were expecting it to take ten. Apparently they were able to re-bore the old water main and thread a new pipe through it. So they've tidied up and gone.
