Last year’s Light up a Life service was held at Guildford Cathedral, and the names of those being remembered will be projected onto the cathedral again this year. With the festive season approaching, many of us find our thoughts turning to loved ones whom we would usually spend Christmas with, but who are no longer with us. Phyllis Tuckwell’s annual Light up a Life service is a special way to remember those we are missing, and find comfort and support at what can be a difficult time of year.

A Fleet resident has been ordered to pay more than £2,000 after pleading guilty to cutting down protected trees in a conservation area. Basingstoke Magistrates Court found earlier this month that the two trees – a sycamore and a cypress – in the North Fleet Conservation Area were removed contrary to a Hart District Council Decision Notice issued on 30 January 2018. This allowed for the felling of several trees at the defendant’s address but clearly stated this did not include the sycamore or cypress.
