Silver Millennium Coins
The school has a stock of commemorative silver
millennium coins available depicting an engraving of the school with the
dates 1878-2000. They cost £15 each and are a very nice idea for
a Christmas present or keepsake for anyone who has attended the school

detailing issue number, etc. Contact Mrs Law at the school on
373672 to order.

Bow Brickhill Club
The annual general meeting of the club took place on
Tuesday 3 October at the Pavilion. Twenty six members were
present. Acting Chairman, Christine Loak, welcomed the members and
reported on a very successful year. An audited sheet was
circulated and approved. The Acting Committee was re-elected en
bloc. Christine Loak was elected Chairman and Betty Barden
Treasurer. Any Other Business: a request was received for a
donation to the Parish Magazine and it was agreed that the sum of thirty
pounds should be given. A most interesting talk on Brickmaking
followed. This was given by Jack Bromfield and a long question and
answer session followed. Rosemary Guess and Shirley Parker ran a
very successful raffle. This was followed by tea and cakes served
by lady members. A welcome was given to Bill Billings MBE who is a
to be the speaker at the November meeting. His subject ' Comics'
will include memories of Beano, The Eagle and The Adventures of Sexton
Blake. The meeting closed at 4 pm. The next meeting will be
on Tuesday 7 November.
The next Parish Council meeting is Thursday 8 November
at 7.30 pm in the Pavilion, Rushmere Close. (Meeting
subsequently postponed until 29 November).
Again we have to report vandalism at the Pavilion when
the walls were daubed with white paint. We believe the culprits
were also marked with paint on their clothes. Someone must know
who they are. The cost of these repairs prevents us spending money
on other projects.
Recyling Calendar for November
Blue weeks: Wednesday 1 November, 15 November, 29
Red weeks: Wednesday 8 November, 22 November.
We are advised that the electricity company will be
replacing some overhead electricity cables and poles and putting cables
underground. This is only for part of the village, roughly from
Downs View to Drakewell. It means that once again the road will be
dug up. Work is scheduled to begin in November.
Our heartiest congratulations to Bernard and Kath Goode
on their Diamond Wedding Anniversary and we wish them many more happy
Many will be saddened by the sudden death of Doris
Rogers. Doris was a well known figure in the village, particularly
when she walked her dog. Latterly she was to be seen at her gate,
willing to talk to anyone. Every month she contributed £1 to the
cost of the village newsletter. She will be sadly missed.
Items for the August newsletter should reach
Norman Causer - 14 Downs View, Bow Brickhill - by Friday 24 November.
