Pint-sized cop on speed patrol
Everyone knows policemen get younger every year, but perhaps not as young as Clayhidon’s own pint-sized village speed cop, Ryland Higgins.
Viewed from the wheel of a speeding car,  Ryland and his radar detector might just be mistaken for the real thing for a second or two, before drivers realise he is an 11 year old with a toy.
He and his mum Lynda, landlady of the Half Moon Inn, will try anything to persuade drivers to slow down while passing through the hilltop centre of the parish.

Walk in the woods and a cream tea
Twenty people enjoyed a stroll in the woods and lanes  of Clayhidon on 2 July and another 25 joined them for a cream tea in the Parish Hall.
Caroline Bendle led the walk in glorious sunshine while the hall committee prepared scones with clotted cream and jam.
The event raised £310 for the     hall improvement fund.
