Cattle Are Arriving Today

The cattle should be transported to the Moor today according to Simon, the stockman. In his words, “They will be excited when they first get out of the livestock container.

Cattle By The End Of The Month

FullSizeRenderWe have a message from the stockman saying he has walked the perimeter of Hob Moor to check for gaps. He is hoping to bring the cattle to the moor by the end of the month. Typically, the cattle are confined to North Lane Field to get them acclimated.

This ancient medieval right of cattle grazing on Hob Moor continues. The cattle may be a bit frisky initially. We ask that you just be respectful of their space and keep an eye that dogs keep their distance too. Thank you.

A reminder that contact information to report problems is on our website: https://fohm.org.uk/contacts/

Dog Missing … and Found!

Bella has been found and the family are much relieved!

Please can everyone keep an eye out for Bella. Shes managed to escape and I’ve searched the local area for the last hour to no avail.

We live close to the Hob Moor so she may have got onto there.

She is very friendly, microchipped and has a pink collar on with a tag and our details on.

Please share. We are totally devastated.

My phone number is 07530097182 or home is 01904 777291

Thank you.

Have A Go at Scything – Sept. 2

Watch nettles being scythed on Hob Moor on September 2, 5-7pm, and learn how to do it! Go to the places where there are lots of Nettles—North Lane entrance, near Lidl amongst the trees, or look out for people working. This will be very interesting to watch and learn this ancient method in agriculture.
