SHOPPING BUS TO CHESHAM.

I have to report some very sad news for the residents who use the Age Concern Bus to Chesham.  Due to lack of support for this service it is  going to be withdrawn unless there is a sudden influx of passengers, it can no longer be a viable proposition. The decision to do this has been put off for some time, but now there is no option but to cancel the Friday bus and let Age Concern use the bus for another group.


Derek and his team have worked so hard to keep this service going as it has run for 30yrs , with the additional outings which everyone enjoyed so much .


Your Driver this week is:  Marian Dickinson.

THAMES VALLEY ALERT

Recently there has been a large increase in the number of garage and shed burglaries in the Chilterns and South Bucks area. These have predominantly taken place in the evenings and overnight, targeting items such as garden tools and sports equipment.

Ensure that your garages and sheds are locked and secure. Record any serial numbers or distinguishing marks on items in your garage or shed.

 

VILLAGE SOCIETY PROGRESS AND PLEDGES

A  brief update on the Speeding Issue continuously being raised as one of the main concerns of the Villagers. Approval has been granted for a PVAS Sign and extra money is being allocated for School 20mph speed flashing signs and white lines on Weedon Hill/Hyde Heath Road.  The final figure will depend on our ability to raise the 50% required of the £19,000.00p needed. There are already 2 pledges and hope for more. 


Please read the full Village Society Paper in the Notice Board outside the Shop.

HYDE  HEATH   VILLAGE  FETE

This may seem far off  - BUT -  the committee who organise this event have their first meeting of the year on Monday evening 23rd January  at 9pm in The Minstrels Gallery in The Plough.    

A lot of hard work and planning goes  into this annual event and David Coulton who spear-heads this very popular local fete with a small group of dedicated residents is always looking for willing helpers.  We have the same problem every year in getting people on board to help  with  setting up, car parking, clearing away,   being “a go-fer”  and generally just being involved.   More hands make light work as well as being part of a very sociable team.
