Mike Paker will be once again using his excellent auctioneering skills at the Harvest Auction on Monday 18 September at 8 pm at The Wheatsheaf auctioning local produce to raise funds for the church.  This always proves to be a very entertaining evening, so do come along and support us.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss and seek solutions to ongoing problems of alleged noise pollution from the Tilbrook Industrial Estate.

Bow Brickhill Club

Despite the set-back of having no speaker for the August meeting, club members organised a very entertaining afternoon themselves, brining photographs, maps and memorabilia dating back over many years.

There were maps of the village and surrounding area dating from the seventeen hundreds, photographs from the very early days of photography, an air-raid warden's diary and even a record of village children's infectious diseases from the early thirties.  After tea and drawing of the raffle, betty organised a short bingo session.  

Preparations are now well in hand for our canal cruise on 5 September and we would remind club members that we  need to meet at the Pavilion at 1.00 pm at the latest to ensure that everyone has transport to and from  Leighton Buzzard.  There is no need to worry about all this happening at lunch time, as provision has been made the the healthiest of appetites during the trip.  All we need is a warm, sunny day.
