 IMPROVEMENTS TO OUR LOCAL FOOTPATHS

 

                        

 

With grateful thanks to North Bucks rRripple (ramblers Repairing and Improving Public Paths for Leisure and Exercise) who have done another fantastic job replacing an old stile for a much more accessible kissing gate on Footpath 5. A number of stiles have been replaced over the years and this makes walking across our beautiful countryside more enjoyable. Gates can be sponsored and if you would like details, please contact the Clerk. 

  

THANK YOU, ROBERT         We can all enjoy the footpaths because they are so well kept. A huge THANK YOU must go to Robert Deuchar, out Footpath Warden who

                                                painstakingly prunes and strims the footpaths and the one bridleway in the parish.

 

 

 LITTER PICK MORNING – A BIG THANK YOU!

 A big THANK YOU to all those who turned out to tidy the village.     

It was great to see the community spirit and lots of

rubbish sacks were filled making Great Horwood look even nicer!

 

A MOAN ABOUT POO BAGS…

 Make sure you put your dog’s poo bags in the designated bin please. The metal rubbish bin on The Green is not to be used for this purpose. This only came to the Council’s attention recently because the bin was extremely full. A Councillor offered to partly remove the rubbish until the bin was properly emptied again. Needless to say, I understand the experience was fairly grim! Please only use the dog waste bins provided – thank you.

  

 

WELCOME TO GREAT HORWOOD

A big welcome to our new residents! There have been many people moving in and out recently. We hope you are settling in and enjoying our lovely village community. Would you like to receive a Welcome Pack? This has recently been updated and includes information on village organisations, the School, Pub, Church and the local area.

Winning bids will be announced at the December Parish Council meeting. The closing date for applications is 31st October 2020.

THANK YOU, JANE  

Once again Jane Holland has been tidying up the planters which can be seen at the four roads that enter our village. They are now planted with winter colour and look very cheerful. Thank you, Jane for all that you do to make the village look welcoming.

INFORMATION SHARING GROUP  

This is a good way of communicating useful information to villagers. If you would like to receive information first hand, such as PC Agendas, Minutes, Thames Valley Police info, roadworks updates and other ad hoc information, please contact me with your email address and I will add you to my list.

LITTER PICK – a date for your diary  

The annual Litter Pick has been delayed this year due to the lockdown and Government restrictions. We have, however been given the go-ahead to hold this event on

SUNDAY 18th OCTOBER, STARTING AT 10am ON THE GREEN

Please come along to help tidy the village. Litter pickers and rubbish sacks will be provided. We will also be providing hi viz jackets but if you have your own, that would be even better. Please could you bring your own gloves, gardening gloves would be good as thorns and sharp objects will tear the plastic gloves some of us are using in our daily lives at the moment. Being outside allows us to social distance, but of course we will keep up to date with Government guidelines in the weeks ahead. Posters around the village and a notice on Facebook will confirm this event nearer the time.

The date of the next meeting is Monday 12th October at 7.30pm. Minutes of meetings can be found on the noticeboard and the Parish Council website e-voice.org.uk/ghpc/ Meetings will continue to be held remotely via Zoom as Government guidelines encourage this at the present time.
