Over 500 years old, our listed mulberry tree at the Vicarage
The mulberries are ready!
The first crop is ripe for picking and they are delicious. If you have not eaten a mulberry, do not miss this opportunity. They look and taste rather like a blackberry (but the flavour is unique and delicious).
Here is what to do: Come to the Vicarage on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday morning between 10.00 am and midday. Just tell the Office what you are doing. Wear old clothes/gloves. Mulberries bleed profusely (do not be put off by this!) and bring a container and fill it. If you can bring a small step ladder – it would help. Take them home and try them in a crumble, or with cream, or make mulberry jam. Enjoy.
DICK ACWORTH thanks all who have signed his petition at www.IAgreeWithDick.org in relation to how people with mental health problems are being adversely affected through re-assessment with the Work Capability Assessment.
So far some 11500 people have signed, but he would love this to get to 15000 and then 100 000, so that a wider audience can be reached.
Do sign if you haven’t, and encourage your family and friends to do so as well. Many thanks.
