FLY-TIPPING: No more of this in Riley Lane thank goodness, as the parish council groundsmen have been very busy clearing all the rubbish and fencing off the area behind the cemetery.

If dog walkers and litter louts now take more responsibility for their actions, this footpath will once again become a pleasant place for everyone to walk along.

CARNIVAL news: Plans are in full swing for the 43rd carnival on June 21, with the procession theme of ‘Carnival Characters’.

Crafters get an even bigger marquee this year, so book your space early with Sandie Rice by sending a £12 cheque to Old Basing Parish Carnival Association, at 16b Pyotts Hill, RG24 8AR.

NATIONAL Women’s Register: This lively local group would welcome new members, so email diane.hope@tiscali.co.uk or evelyncjjones@hotmail.co.uk to discover more about their monthly programme.

BASING House: Easter Sunday and Monday, see the site opening from 11am, and playing host to civil war re-enactors. Volunteers are needed for the archaeological dig between July 21 and August 16. Call Nicole on 07956 077995.
