- You may have already seen the current exhibition in the library, commemorating the Civic Trust's 45 years of volunteer effort on Hayfield's behalf. If you haven't, it's an attractive introduction to the range of the Trust's work and - if it encourages a few additional new members - so much the better! The exhibition is there until the end of June;
- Sustainable Hayfield is organising an activity session at the library garden this Saturday, 21st May at 3pm, for an hour or two. At this, the focus will be on: Weeding all the beds and around the fruit bushes Hopefully planting - courgettes, peas, beans... Everyone's welcome - and if you've any surplus plants you're happy to see planted or swap with someone else, so much the better. There'll be some tools, but please bring your own. And - if you need an incentive - there'll be home-made cakes and biscuits for the workers!
- On Wednesday 25th May at 7.30p.m., there's a talk at the Village Hall, again organised by the Civic Trust, on 'Samuel Oldknow, His Life, Times and Legacy'. Oldknow was one of the prime innovators in the Industrial Revolution and had very strong local roots, notably at Marple and Mellor. The lecturer, Bob Humphrey-Taylor, organises and supervises the volunteer excavations which - underway for some time - at Mellor Mill and is a trustee of the Mellor Archaeological Trust.
