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 or lives in the village.  They are available in a presentation box detailing issue number, etc.  Contact Mrs Law at the school on 373672 to order.

School Christmas Bazaar

The school will be holding a Christmas Bazaar in the Pavilion on Saturday 2 December from 2 pm to 4 pm..  There will be a variety of stalls with something for everyone, including a Father Christmas Grotto.  

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.

Parish Council

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 November

Red weeks: Wednesday 8 November, 22 November.

Electricity Work

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.

Congratulations!

Our heartiest congratulations to Bernard and Kath Goode on their Diamond Wedding Anniversary and we wish them many more happy years together.

Doris Rogers

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.  Tel 01908 372884.
