The floral displays in Cricklade this year were exceptional, despite the extreme heat over the summer. Very well done to all our winners. More details can be found at this link and in the October edition of The Chronicle.



Message from GreenSquare Homes Ltd.

Land adjacent to The Forty, Cricklade.
We will be commencing work on the formation of the new roundabout and associated works. The 2 traffic calming islands have been removed and traffic signals are now in place as part of the traffic management for the works. These will remain in place for approximately 12 weeks.
We would like to thank residents in advance for their patience and understanding in respect of these works.

The grazing of North Meadow.

The Hayward of The Manorial Court of the Hundred and Borough of Cricklade advises that there will be 71 cattle on North Meadow for the next few weeks and up to 20 horses until the end of the year. There are caution notices on every entrance to assist visitors. Grazing is a vital part of maintaining our National Nature Reserve. Hundreds of years of Lammas management (hay crop taken in July followed by aftermath grazing) is why North Meadow has such a unique and special biodiversity.
