WE should all be delighted that our MP Jim Paice has offered to act as an "honest broker" in the Roswell Pits controversy.
His willingness to take up local issues is one of the reasons he is elected with huge majorities and I am sure, if he were a Liberal Democrat MP, his intervention would be more appreciated in some quarters.

At this time of year, observant walkers can find: blackberries, sloes, cob nuts, walnuts and a variety of apples, plums and mushrooms. There is also a damson tree. So there we are.
