In addition to being under threat from the proposed unsustainable Lodge Farm (DS10) development, the historic hamlet of Woolscott in Warwickshire is expected to pay annual Wroth Silver dues of 1/2p (old money) each year to His Grace The Duke of Buccleuch! While this hasn't been a legal requirement since the start of the nineteenth century, the custom prevails and penalty for forfeiture in Woolscott's case is a further payment of 50p in old money or a White Bull with red ears and a red nose!

Thankfully, Woolscott avoided penury once more when the monies due were settled at the Wroth Silver Ceremony on Knightlow Hill near Stretton-on-Dunsmore early this morning, leaving more time for residents of the surrounding areas to focus on the dismissal of the Lodge Farm (DS10) from Rugby Borough Council's Draft Local Plan.

Objections to Lodge Farm have been landing thick and fast. The last Objection Workshop, held in Grandborough Village Hall on Thursday 10th November was a great success and saw attendance from Dunchurch, Onley, Barby, Woolscott, Grandborough, Willoughby and Braunston. Numerous high-quality objections were completed due the course of the evening and collated with objections against Lodge Farm received in recent days from all over Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Coventry, Birmingham, Leicestershire, Staffordshire and many other places throughout the British Isles.

Our SALFV Volunteers treat each objection form or letter with great care and can be seen below delivering the objections received during the last Objection Workshop to the Town Hall on Evreux Way in Rugby.
