New Parish Clerk
Just a quick introduction, my name is Charlotte Kirby and I have taken over the role of Tidbury Green Parish Clerk, from the 1st April 2013. I am very excited about my new role and I look forward to speaking to and meeting the people of Tidbury Green.
Residents were invited to go and see the primroses at St Patrick's Church, Salter Street, Earslwood over the weekend of 20th and 21st April 2013. Primrose Day is on the 19th April and is the anniversary of the death of British statesman and Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield. The primrose was his favourite flower and Queen Victoria would often send him bunches of them from Windsor and Osborne House. She sent a wreath of primroses to his funeral.

Tidbury Green Wildlife Competition 2012
No entry fee and cash prizes will be awarded to entries, judged to be the best, by an independent Committee. The amount of the prize fund donated by the Parish Council will be directly related to the number of entrants to the competition, so the more entrants, the bigger the prize fund.
