A new page on the archeological dig has just been uploaded. It includes photographs and a written account of the work to date.

The dig team will be resuming their excavations of the Dagnams mansion site on Friday 19th January 2018, weather permitting. All are welcome to join in on this to discover the size and layout of the house and it would be nice to see some new faces. The dig team meet up at the site of the house adjacent to the Lily pond on Monday and Friday mornings between 9.30 and midday. Even if you can not take part in the dig all are welcome to pop along to have a chat whilst walking in the park.

We are planning an Easter egg hunt in the Manor for Easter Saturday. The age group will be for 10 years and under. All children must be accompanied by an adult. The time will be from 10am to midday. To help us plan the event can you please email us if interested and how many children will attend. Today we reached the half way point at the Manor dig site. The west and south walls are now excavated. Do join us if interested. We meet every Monday and Friday from 9.30am to 12.30pm at the dig site. All the tools are provided. Look for us in this March's LBH Living Magazine.                Alan York

Congratulations to us! our Aviva grant for replacement trees down the avenue from the car park to the house site has been awarded. Thanks to all those who took the time to vote for us. We haven't actually received the funds yet. When we do, we will be seeking advice and support from LBH Parks Dept on where to purchase and the best way to protect the saplings from deer nibbling! Other tree news. LBH Tom Fradd has contacted us regarding replacement oak trees that will be planted in the ancient circle of trees site in the manor. There will be a publicity photo and he asked if any FODP members would attend the photo shoot. Our capital project for 2017/8 is a makeover of the Settle Road entrance. The new information sign is close to completion, and work will be needed to paint and tidy the area.
