Full Moon – Tuesday, 8th November

The November Full Moon, known as the Beaver Moon, will be at its fullest at 11.02am so will look its fullest on Monday night.

Full Moon names date back to Native Americans of North America. There was some variation in the Full Moon names, but in general, the same ones were consistent among regional tribes – those who rely on Full Moon periods to track crops and harvest.

This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. In the 1760s, Captain Jonathan Carver heard this Native American term during his travels.

The brightness of the Full Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are aligned on opposite sides of Earth, and 100% of the Moon’s face is illuminated by the Sun.

It is time to come back down to Earth. Time to settle down. Time to regroup, find your feet and ground yourself back into what’s important to you, what works for you, and what you want in life.

Expect Those Country Smells By Fullers & Trusthams

We live in the countryside, we are used to farm vehicles on our roads and we adapt to those ‘country smells’ that visitors gag at… Here is a polite message from local farmers, Andrew & Tim Frampton:

The war in Ukraine has meant that artificial fertiliser prices namely ammonium nitrate has increased four fold in price and is now very difficult to get hold of as well .We have just signed a contact to rent the fields behind Fullers and Trusthams for another year and the ground is in desperate need of fertiliser .We usually use artificial fertiliser but this year are forced to use 🐄 🚽 so it may smell for a couple days before being absorbed and we just wanted to warn residents and apologise for any smell but it will only linger for a couple days. We hope residents will understand. Thank you.

Nature Art In Hursey Common

There’s some lovely nature art appearing in the fence posts around Hursey Common playing field 🙂

Is it faeries at work? Perhaps, but we like to believe that they are appearing to honour the spirit of David Leader and his work making Hursey Common so beautiful.

Thank you to Simon Emmerson for the photoraphs.
