It is with regret that we have to announce that the Browning Tree located at the junction of Station Road and School Road is scheduled to be felled on March 27th and 28th. This horse chestnut tree was gifted to the Parish by Mr. James Browning, a publican from Cheltenham, who used to spend his leisure hours at the Kings Head. The tree originally stood on the village green outside the Kings Head pub, but was relocated after the First World War, when the war memorial was erected (this too, was subsequently relocated to its current position at the top of ChurchRoad). A metal framed wooden seat wasplaced around the tree and this has now been relocated to the Parish Gardens,where the seats have been replaced using old pews from St. Michaels and All Angels Church. Unfortunately, the tree now has significant die-back in the crown and some disease in the trunk and as such, poses a risk to safety given its close proximity to overheadwires, passing traffic and near-by properties.

It is with great sadness that we have learned the news of the death of our Monarch, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Most of us have not known life without her as our Queen, a Queen who led the Country and the Commonwealth with a lifelong dedication to duty, the like of which we will never see again. On behalf of Bishop’s Cleeve Parish Council and all of our residents we offer our sincere condolences to her family at this very difficult time. A Book of Condolence is available in the Parish Office for residents to sign. As a mark of respect, the Council will be flying the Union Flag at half-mast and over the coming days we will be following the national protocol to mourn Her Majesty. Anybody wishing to lay floral tributes is asked to do so at the flag pole in the Parish Garden, Church Road, Bishop’s Cleeve, but please do not leave them wrapped in paper or plastic and avoid leaving candles. Those placed outside of the designated area will be moved to the official area. All items will be removed the day after the State Funeral for HM Queen ElizabethII. In accordance with protocol all Council meetings scheduled to take place before the 26th September have been postponed. Further details of the revised dates will be available on the Council’s website shortly.
Councillor Wendy Hopkins, Chair of Bishop’s Cleeve Parish Council
