Another Visit from Vandals
At least one car had its window smashed by vandals during the night of 25th November, exactly four weeks after the incident when 4 cars had their windows smashed during the night of 28th October. Police have once again been notified, but residents are asked to exercise vigilance. If anyone has any information relating to the incident they should inform the Police.

Following the successful litter patrol carried out on 21st March 2015 as part of National Clear Up Day, a total of 19 volunteers from Shorne and Shorne Ridgeway took part in another successful litter patrol on Saturday morning, 10th October.
Equipped with litter picking wands and 'Shorne Volunteer' hi-viz waistcoats supplied by Shorne Parish Council, the volunteers split into five teams and tackled Pear Tree Lane, The Ridgeway, Brewers Road, Woodlands Lane, Tanyard Hill, The Street, Forge Lane, Green Farm Lane, and Shorne Ifield Road, and collected over 40 sacks of litter.
Councillor Bob Lane said, "Last time out, we found that the residential cul-de-sacs were quite well maintained. This time we focussed on the 'soft-verge' roads through the village, which suffer from inconsiderate drivers and others who discard their empty cans, bottles, and wrappers onto the side of the road. It was great to see such a good turn-out of residents prepared to tackle the litter and to help keep our village looking neat and tidy." Further information about litter patrols can be downloaded here.
Just a few days later, a parishioner helped out by filling the pot-holes at the top of Butchers Hill. Two weeks later, volunteers planted around 500 daffodil and narcissi bulbs in Chestnut Green.
