Latest news from Debi Game (Community Impact Bucks)
There was a very good turnout for our recent information evening about the potential of developing a Good Neighbours Scheme for the Great Missenden Parish. We have agreed to meet again to discuss and hopefully agree the following:
The focus and scope of the Good Neighbours Scheme
The geographical coverage of the scheme
Identify volunteers to a) form the GNS committee and/or b) be prepared to volunteer to help deliver support
Agree how Community Impact Bucks can best support you to develop and launch your scheme.
The inaugural Chiltern Samaritans Charity Cycle Ride took place on Saturday 3rd July. Organisers were thrilled with the turnout. Over 400 cyclists left the start line, some 60% more than had been anticipated. Perhaps it was the offer of a Free Pint by Malt The Brewery for all who took part!
When Malt The Brewery were asked to deliver beer to the Thornbury Castle Pub in Marylebone, they could have done what they always do and deliver it in the faithful brewery van.

Hello – thanks to you all for giving up time this weekend to participate in the community litter pick. Here is a photo of the substantial heap of rubbish awaiting collection by CDC. Prestwood is a cleaner, tidier, better place now thanks to your efforts. Watch the PVA website for news of the next litter pick weekend, which I will organise for September, and please encourage your friends to join in this worthwhile event. All the best and thanks – Jeanette
No, it’s not a dream, it will be Midsummer’s day (astronomically speaking) as we enjoy Chequers Folk this month… almost as far from Christmas as it can be (so expect the decorations to start going up soon!).
Whether we will introduce any Christmas or dreamy Shakespearean references we will have to wait and see, but certainly we hope for better weather than when Shakespeare wrote his play – ‘June and July were very wet and wonderfull cold like winter, that the 10 dae of Julii many did syt by the fyer, and there were gret fludes’. Ah, the British Summer (1594).
This month, alongside The Wick Trimmers, we have the return of David and Peter, and Kate will be singing both a cappella and with the band.
Dance the night away at
Road Farm, Great Missenden!
Come and dance to The Wick Trimmers at Road Farm, Great Missenden, 6.30pm – 10.30pm, 10th June 2017. With special guest Isla St Clair. Tickets £15, children £5. Family ticket £40. It’s part of Open Farm Sunday – see separate event.
