I enjoyed reading The Village last month, especially the fabulous tip given by Cheryl Godfrey regarding using the horse droppings to feed the roses (Village Views, November 2017).

This is an open letter to Alvechurch Parish Council and anyone concerned with the situation at the Wiggin Recreation Grounds, known locally as The Meadows, over the past summer and autumn.

I would like to thank all local businesses who donated the wonderful array of prizes for the Alvechurch Knit & Natter Alzheimer’s Charity Raffle, and all you lovely people who have purchased tickets.
