Gormley Sculpture to Go An Antony Gormley Sculpture was erected in Lowsonford in the grounds of Lengthsman's Cottage by the Stratford canal last May. There will be an event on the 14th & 15th May to mark the end of Landmark Trust's year of celebration and is a final opportunity to visit and bid farewell to the Lengthsman's figure which has stood by the lockside for a whole year.

Lapworth Parish Council meet monthly at the village hall to discuss local matters and make decisions affecting residents. The public are welcome to attend these meetings and are given a chance to make representations at the start of each meeting. The Parish Council website will tell you when the meetings are. So, go along and watch the most local level of local government in action.
The link on the top left of this page will take you there too. The picture in it is the Chairman's badge and chain of office. Follow this link to find out what the images on it mean.

So if you live on North Station Lane, Kingswood Close or Priory Close, just get used to it...you are not going to be part of the broadband revolution any time soon. Or are you?... On the 21st May, workers were spotted digging a trench in the vicinity of cabinet 3 and there were pipes around that were obviously not for water or gas (there isn't any gas in Lapworth), so perhaps BT Openreach are finally going to supply fibre to the cabinet for cabinet 3.

"Love From Charlotte", a short story by Gill Polgreen:
The tears splashed onto the keyboard of the laptop, leaving little puddles on the D and the K. Harriet mopped them up with a neatly pressed handkerchief and hastily dabbed at her carefully made-up eyes, trying to avoid smearing her mascara....Follow this link to read the rest.

Where is your electricticy generated? Gridwatch is an excellent website using publicly available but previously obscure data to show clearly how much power the country uses and how it is generated. It paints an interesting picture.
