Another glorious day greeted the Chicken Chasers on their third walk around the footpaths and lanes of Chapmanslade. A replanned route to avoid fields of cows and their young calves took the fifteen strong group through the last of the bluebells in Black Dog Woods and the buttercups and wild flowers in the fields near Corsley Mill. The walk finished in the glorious sunshine of the garden at The Three Horseshoes with a well earned lemonade for the young ones and a cider for a few of the adults.
The next walk is planned for Wednesday 20th June, meeting at 7.30pm at the Three Horseshoes, Chapmanslade.
As usual, the walk will be around three miles and dogs, and any children that are allowed to stay up that late are welcome.

Corsley Community Wildflower Meadow
There is an exciting project underway to restore the Old School Playing Field to a wildflower meadow...
Corsley was once rich in wildflower meadows, providing colour, biodiversity; a haven for wildlife and forage for bees. Sadly, as across much of England, our wildflower meadows have been lost or degraded. Our plan is to restore one small area in Corsley. We want to create a beautiful wildlife‐friendly area which local people can visit and enjoy. It will require hard work and patience, but we think it's worth it.
If you would like to be involved - whether actively volunteering (sowing, mowing, raking, weeding) or just cheering from the side lines – please get in touch. We would especially welcome help from anyone with special skills or equipment.

Corsley Photo Archive
Help us tell Corsley's story!
Houses are altered, pulled down or extended; landscapes change, trees are cut down, hedges disappear and, because we live here all the time, these changes go un-noticed. These alterations, recorded in the odd snap here and there, are often in the background. This project has been set up to document and display those changes for posterity.
We would do this by scanning, archiving and displaying the photographs and building a website. If the photos have creases or are a bit faded we can retouch the scanned image and supply a rejuvenated copy. If you are interested in this idea and can help as part of a study group or by letting us see your photographs, then do please get in touch with Phil Plumb or Liz Garrett.
