A snapshot of life in the village from 1987 - 2007 compiled by the Parish History Recorder DAVID STACY

2007

During the world Scout Jamboree at Hylands Park in August, parties of scouts visited many places in the Borough to carry out goodwill tasks for the community. The churchyard at St Michael's in Galleywood was the scene of one of these activities. During three days, over 150 scouts carried out work in the churchyard under the supervision of volunteers from the Parish. Several trees were felled and the rampant Laurel which continuously invades the northern boundary was cleared. This will enable a survey of the native trees, many of which have suffered from the invasion of this evergreen shrub. Elsewhere another group of scouts was engaged in painting the white rails along the racecourse on the Common.
