Published on Mon 29th January 2018 Community News

Many of us want to help our elderly or frail neighbours but we may not always be sure how to go about it, or even whether it’s appropriate. After all, no one wants to seem nosy or interfering, but a few simple steps can make a world of difference to someone who may be reluctant to ask for help themselves. Buckinghamshire County Council and your local NHS organisations have jointly developed a campaign, “Be a Good Neighbour”, to show people easy ways in which they can help and now we would like to ask for your help in promoting the campaign.

Bucks County Council Pothole Reporting

Published on Wed 17th January 2018 Parish Council, Community News

This winter’s weather has been tough on Buckinghamshire’s roads – while the heavy snowfall in December was the most remarkable weather event, the worst conditions for roads are actually when the ground temperature fluctuates constantly between just above and just below zero. Pothole formation is accelerated by this ‘freeze-thaw’ effect, whereby moisture gets into small cracks in the the road surface and expands when it freezes, then thaws out when the temperature rises. This process repeats until the road surface begins to break up and potholes are formed.

Hazlemere Fete 2018 How is it Helping Charities?

Published on Wed 29th November 2017 Community News

Good question! And the answer is….that isn’t the bit that helps the good causes. The help is two fold - It is the profit that can be carved up that helps them and you have to speculate to accumulate as they say. This year that amounted to 31% of turnover, a figure that many businesses can only dream of.
