Uttlesford District Report To ECNWA Meeting 13th September 2022

Derrick Giffin writes:

It has been a strange Summer this year, very hot and dry.
Some times too hot to go outdoors.
I fought a losing battle trying to produce food on my allotment
I had stands at two fete but found it too hot and the attendance was down, so gave that up for this year.
I started up two new Watch areas on new estates with people moving into Uttlesford.
We continued our visits with UDC safety partners, Police and Fire service to local farms offering help and advice.
Fire on farms has been a big problem this year.
Hare coursing is not too bad so far. The rural Police team have been proactive with this,
