Oak Processionary Moth infestations have been found on the oak trees adjacent to The Ridings and Forest Road. The caterpillars of OPM are pests of oak trees and a hazard to human and animal health.
DO NOT touch or go near caterpillars or nests; let children or pets go near them or try to remove nests or caterpillars yourself. The Parish Clerk has reported this to the Forestry Commission.
