High Street Christmas Shop Window Competition There were some brilliantly decorated shop windows to complement the lights and new tree on the Green. Well done to Morgan’s Hairdressers which was judged to have the best Christmas Shop Window, with Park & Brown Optometrists & K. Lou’s Hairdressers taking 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Thanks to all those businesses who made the effort to make Billingshurst look and feel so Christmassy.

Bird Nesting Season Did you know that wild birds are protected by law? This is particularly important during the bird nesting season which typically lasts from early spring until late July. Hedge cutting, vegetation clearance and tree work activities can have a devastating effect on the nesting sites of wild birds. If you intend to carry out works at your property, please be mindful that birds may be
nesting. If you require further advice as to what is and isn’t permitted during this time, please read the Wildlife & Countryside Act or contact the RSPB for advice.
