Farewell to our Lengthman

June 8, 2024

Last month the Parish Council gathered to celebrate David Hollick, who has retired as Blewbury’s Lengthman after ten years of service.

David was an exceptional Lengthman who quietly got on with the job of maintaining the village footpaths and green spaces, looking after the cemetery, cutting hedges and chopping felled trees, emptying bins, maintaining all the PC’s machinery and so, so much more. We are very grateful to him. We’re delighted that Iain Wood has taken over the reins as the new Lengthman; he has had an excellent start in the job.
