The Green

A further 2 seats are being installed in front of the Pavilion in at attempt to reduce the amount of vandalism caused to the guttering and roof due to footballs being constantly kicked against the Pavilion walls.

The General Purpose Committee agreed at it's meeting in November that no football would be played by either EB Lions or the adult football teams on the Green other than on that part of the Green towards the Memorial Car park end and in no circumstances on land in front of the Pavilion or the cricket pitch which is for the recreational use of parishioners.

The Memorial Hall

Shot gun pellets have damaged the windows of the Memorial Hall. This matter is being treated as a severe and dangerous crime. If any nearby residents hear or see anything suspicious would they please immediately ring Thames Valley Police on the 999 number.

Core Strategy

Following the scrappage of the original Core Strategy it will be progressed under the title of "The Vale of Aylesbury Plan" and it is intended that this will involve a significant amount of engagement with town and parish councils.

Advice from Bucks CC - snow clearance

Do not use hot water as snow could be replaced with black ice increasing the risk of injury.

Use sand or ash as a salt substitute should salt supplies run out.

When shovelling snow be careful not to block residents paths or drainage channels,

Be a "good neighbour" by clearing snow for those people who may be unable to do so themselves.


Several energy companies use a password security system which is available to domestic customers who can register a password against their account. Anyone claiming to be from your energy company, reading meters etc. can then be asked for this password to confirm they are genuine. If they are not able to give you the password, do not allow them access to your property. Contact your individual companies to find out if they operate such a system - the numbers will be available from your energy bills.
