Lush Places: who knows what tomorrow brings?

IN 2011, we lost our village shop. Our pub has been closed for the last three months. There are only rumours coming from the-brewery-with-no-apostrophe about what and when something might happen.

We’ve coped, because in Lush Places that’s how we rock. But it can’t go on forever.

With one in five properties here a holiday home, it does make you wonder what the future holds. Especially when several people were asked in the parish plan survey ‘what don’t you like about Lush Places?’ they replied: ‘noisy agricultural vehicles’.

So it cheered me to the bone when I was told another answer: ‘incomers who tell us what to do’.

There’s hope for Lush Places yet.
