Golden Jubliee Celebrations
Bow Brickhill Parish Council would like to thank all members of the
Jubilee Sub-Committee for their dedication, hard work and commitment
in arranging a very successful fun day for all the family on Sunday
June 9th. In particular we would like to thank Pat Pullinger as Chair and
Cathy Kitchener as Secretary of the Sub-committee. Despite the weather
the fun day attracted many local residents and their families who
enjoyed the event and a great time was had by all.
Would parents who have reserved commemorative mugs for their children
that were not able to attend the event please contact the Parish
Clerk to arrange collection of the mugs. There are still a few mugs for
sale at a price of £3.00 each if anyone would still like to purchase these
please also contact the Parish Clerk.
Parking on Verges
The Parish Council again request that residents do not park vehicles
on the grass verges as this still seems to be an ongoing problem
and complaints are still being received.

Golden Jubliee Committee
We would like to thank all local residents and their families who took
the extra effort to attend this event despite the heavy rain and made it
such a success. It was lovely to see a community gather together in
celebration of the Queens Golden Jubilee.
We would also like to thank along with the committee all those people
whose hard work enabled the event to go ahead and all the local residents
who assisted on the day with the setting up and clearing down of
the Pavilion. Many people helped in many ways and especially we would like to
thank the following: Mr and Mrs Lloyd for the 5 meter
banner advertising the event, Mr and Mrs Tilley for the signage;
Amscan/David Butcher for the bunting, plates and medals; Chrissie Loak and Alan Wilkins
for judging the children’s poster competition; Rosemary Clarke and
Paul Mills for sharing their birthday celebrations with the community
and opening the event and judging the fancy dress; Mike and Shirley
Parker for the Raffle; Julie Summerfield and Kim Hughes for providing First Aid cover; Keith
Goodyer and Duncan Summerfield for providing and fitting the P.A.
system; Tim Holden for being Quiz Master; Cathy Kitchener for producing
the album of the event, Douglas Loak, Jane Lousada and Odette Holland for their memories
of the coronation and Silver Jubilee; WI for the refreshments and hot dogs; Bow Brickhill Club for
Security; and all the local groups who put in considerable time and
effort in providing presentation boards and performing on stage.
Photographs have been taken of the event and will be available in an album for everyone to enjoy. It is our intention that every participating
organisation will have the album for sufficient length of time to
enable them to look at and order photographs as they wish. By way of following on from this
event the banner and photographs will be available to the School and
other organisations to encourage young and old to plan ahead and
look at what the next 50 years could bring.

PBB - Preserve Bow Brickhill
The PBB committee continues to meet regularly and this month we
considered the issue of the Shanks incinerator, for which Milton Keynes
Council has received a planning application. While the development
is not within the village, PBB takes the view that, should it go ahead, it
will be extremely detrimental to Bow Brickhill as the village lies directly in
line with emissions carried on the prevailing wind. Those who remember
when there were brickworks at the Newton Longville site will also
recall the fallout that we experienced.
PBB has written to Milton Keynes Council to express its concern. If
you would also like to write to express your views the letter should
be addressed to:
Head of Planning and Transport,
P.O. Box No. 125, Civic Offices,
1 Saxon Gate East,
Central Milton Keynes,
A meeting of Milton Keynes Council's Environment Overview Committee to discuss the Council's
waste strategy takes place at Wilton Hall, Bletchley at 7 pm on 25 July
where members of the public will be able to express their views.
I'd like to say public thank you to Tim and Georgy Holden for producing a splendid
newsletter and to all those who contribute to make it possible. It gets
better each month and I think it is primarily responsible for keeping
Bow Brickhill such a strong and vibrant community.
Similarly thank you too to the Parish Council - all of whom work without
any pay - for everything they do to ensure that the village is and
remains such a wonderful place to live. Your commitment and hard
work is much appreciated.

One of my favourite poets and writers is Rudyard
Kipling. Whilst the Jubilee and the World Cup are still in our minds the poem "The Children’s
Song" is particularly apt.
Land of our Birth, we pledge to thee
our love and toil in the years to be;
When we are grown and take our place
as men and women with our race.
Father in Heaven who lovest all
Oh help they children when they call
That they may build from age to age
an undefiled heritage.
Teach us to bear the yoke in youth
With steadfastness and careful truth;
That in our time, thy grace may give
the truth whereby the Nations live.
Teach us to rule ourselves alway
Controlled and clearly night and day
That we may bring, if need arise
no maimed or worthless sacrifice.
Teach us to look in all our ends
On Thee for judge and not our friends
That we, with thee, may walk uncowed
By fear or favour of the crowd.
Teach us the strength that cannot seek
by deed or thought to hurt the weak
That under Thee, we may possess
Man’s strength to comfort man’s distress
Teach us Delight in simple things
and Mirth that has no bitter springs
Forgiveness free of evil done
And Love to all men neath the sun
We are pleased to declare that the Open Gardens was a success with
over 100 visitors and that the sum of £482 was raised for church funds.
Thanks to all who helped on the day, those who visited the gardens and
especially to those who opened their gardens.
