David Balmer – Late 2011 saw the sad death of David Balmer, a volunteer who for many years worked tirelessly on the Railway Line Walk. The walk was acquired by the Parish Council in the 1983 and was at that time overgrown with brambles. With others from the village David made it into what it is today, planting trees, clearing weeds and keeping records of visiting wildlife. His work was commemorated with a tree planting and plaque on the railway line in December, attended by grateful friends and family.
