Autumn is gently nuzzling in. But summer lingers on with strong sunshine, warm breezes and gentle rain between the cooler mornings and nights. All good for gardeners and plenty of time, we hope, to catch up on all those ‘tidying up’ jobs we love so much. John Keats so vividly brings this season to life.
“Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees, And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells With a sweet kernel; to set budding more, And still more, later flowers for the bees, Until they think warm days will never cease, For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.”

The summer is fast disappearing and what a summer it’s been! Torrential rain, prolonged high temperatures, strong winds – we never know what will hit us next.
Meanwhile, the business of the village continues… and there’s a vacancy on Metfield Parish Council.
VACANCY FOR A PARISH COUNCILLOR
Are you interested in what goes on in Metfield and in making the village a great place to live?
There is now a vacancy on Metfield Parish Council. The role of a Parish Councillor is not a difficult one, but it can be a varied task and is totally voluntary. Councillors are expected to be the ‘eyes and ears’ of the parish – to listen to or identify issues which may be causing concern to residents, then look at ways of resolving them. The Council meets every two months, with occasional additional meetings as required.
If you would like to join the Council, please contact the Clerk (details below) by 23 August, with a short paragraph about yourself and why you would like to be a councillor. The only criteria are that you must be a resident of Metfield, and have lived in the parish for at least 1 year. The successful candidate will be co-opted onto the Council at the next Council meeting.
