Parish Concerns

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.

Audit Procedures

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 pride.  

The Woburn Sands branch of the Royal British Legion are looking for new members.  If any ex-servicemen or women is interested in joining please call Miss Rebecca Timlick on 01525 290445.  We have had several replies for the incumbency in the Brickhills with Stoke Hammond and the representatives from the four parishes will be holding interviews on 1st November.  We hope they will be successful in appointing a new rector.

Harvest Celebrations

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 particular help and support in raising an amazing 485 for church funds.

The Bow Brickhill Club

The club celebrated their third anniversary in grand style.  There was a glass of wine with lots to eat which, combined with a brain teasing quiz, raffle and a bingo session organised by Betty and Don, resulted in a very full and entertaining afternoon. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Tesco for the 5.00 voucher used for our September meeting.

Now if you would like a peep behind the scenes of our local pantomime, why not come to our next meeting at 2 pm on Tuesday 5 November.  Ken Branchette will be entertaining us with a talk on writing pantomime and the construction and painting of sets.
