PARISH COUNCIL NEWS
It has been noticed that again vehicles are being parked
fully on the pavements along Station Road especially near to
the school. Following a public meeting it was clarified
that the pavements are not suitable for vehicles to park on
and that due to the services running under them it is not
possible to put bays in these areas. In the light of
this could be please again request that residents park their
vehicles on the road and not the footpath. Thank you.
Further to the advertisement put in the parish news for
assistance with the new audit procedures the Parish Council
would like to thank Mr Bill Mather for offering his support
and accepting the role. Without volunteers to assist in
these matters there would be considerable cost to the parish.

Lest We Forget
Remembrance Sunday this year falls on November 10th.
Services and parades are held throughout the country to
remember those form each community who lost their lives in the
two world wads and other conflicts and wars since then. Most
are held at 11 am to tie in with the national ceremony which
when first held as at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of
the eleventh month. Not it is on the Sunday nearest the
11th of November.
For the last fifteen years or so because we have had to share
our Rector with the other Brickhills we have held our Remember
Service at 3 pm. With the world in turmoil and a
possible war looming we should give thanks that we live in a
relatively peaceful country because of those men and women who
gave their lives in fighting for liberty and justice. Join us
on Sunday 10th at 3 pm at the War Memorial to remember those
who paid the supreme sacrifice and wear your poppy with

The Harvest Supper, although down on numbers this year,
was a very successful evening with those attending enjoying an
excellent meal and raising £96 for church funds in the
process. Thanks to all who prepared and helped with the
food and to those who came along and supported the evening.
The Harvest Auction held in the Wheatsheaf was not only
a most entertaining evening, but the most successful one in
the 22 years that it has been held. As always Mick
Parker was a splendid auctioneer and those present fully
entered into the spirit of the evening buying large quantities
produce (mainly of the marrow variety!) at hugely inflated
prices. Thanks to all who gave produce and items for
autioneering - May Butcher in particular - all who came along
and supported this event, Mick for keeping us entertained,
John Payne for raising over £100 on the raffle, and special
thanks to Pauline and Tony of the Wheatsheaf for their
