Les Houards Well
The Forest Floral Group came up with the idea of renovating the well at Les Houards last year and thanks to the Heaume family and Granite Le Pelley this has been achieved.
The well has not been used since the 1920s and it is believed that during the war a tree which was being felled in an adjoining field crashed into the well causing the stone to fall into the 30 foot well. Since then it has been allowed to fall into disrepair and become an eyesore.
In November the Dean of the Parish Richard Heaume asked parishioners if they would be happy to buy the well for £1, because that is the minimum amount he could sell it legally. This was agreed and that the Constables would maintain it in the future.
Director Richard Breban of Granite Le Pelley put it to his Board that they should renovate the well free as a token of support for the parish and this was approved. Work began in April 2012.
