Dear Chequers Folk folk…
Yes, we have checked and, NO! there won’t be any red arrows flying on Chequers Folk night this month or next at The Chequers Tree (ie. no darts match!).
So, we are excited to be welcoming Liz Simcock who is a brilliant singer/songwriter from North London. Her lyrics are wonderfully crafted observations on a wide range of contemporary life and relationships – eg. escaping city life, Cromer pier, knitting and love songs… both Colin and Clive rate her latest album ‘Friday Night Train Home’ as one of the best they’ve ever heard.

To help make the 31 October trick or treat celebration enjoyable for everyone, Thames Valley Police is working with Chiltern District Council Community Safety Team to encourage residents to display posters in their front windows to indicate whether or not they welcome Halloween callers.

A huge ‘THANK YOU’ from Jeanette Hedley to all those who participated in last weekend’s litter picking exercise in Prestwood.
“There were 25 volunteers in total including 4 eager children. Without your help, 30+ sacks of rubbish, 2 old wheelbarrows, discarded wood, metal, netting and glass would still be fouling our beautiful village green spaces, pathways, car parks, roads and play park. What a difference we can make if we all work together to clean up Prestwood.
“Take a look at the photo to see the quantity of rubbish you managed to pick up in a few hours and I’m sure you’ll agree that the effort was worth it. Well Done!
“Keep watch on the Prestwood Village Association Website for dates of the next community litter pick weekend.” Jeanette
