Best Kept Village Competition
Edlesborough was unsuccessful this year and the Best Kept Village sign has now been removed and presented to the winning village of Cuddington. The Judges’ comments were that the village had a rather neglected look with the exception of the areas around the village hall and the village sign. The Churchyard and Cemetery were neat and well maintained. The Flower Shop was attractive and the café well used and tidy but there was an abundance of weeds at the bottom of walls. Litter also needed attention. Regrettably Edlesborough, like other parish villages, was badly let down by Bucks CC with the lack of grass cutting when judging took place.
Speed Limit in Leighton Road, Edlesborough
Funding is being sought to endeavour to get a speed reduction from 60 to 50mph on the Leighton Road between Edlesborough and the Travellers Rest.
Parking at the top of Edlesborough High Street
The Council are in discussions with Buckinghamshire County Council to ascertain whether better parking arrangements can be achieved.
Extension of Play Area on The Green
It is hoped that the new play equipment on Edlesborough Green will have been installed and in use by the end of October.
Quotations are being sought to lay a path and erect a barrier on Gaddesden Walk footpath.
It has been confirmed by Bucks CC that the footpath across Northall village green was originally incorrectly marked out and will be reinstated to the correct position in due course.
Thames Valley Police
Crime prevention tip of the month- Recently there has been a small increase in vamoose burglaries in Aylesbury Vale (vehicles stolen by obtaining the key from the home). Here are 5 top tips to reduce this type of crime:
- Park in a garage if possible.
- Don’t leave keys on show that can be seen through a door or window. Keys can easily be hooked through letterboxes if left by the front door.
- Secure all windows and doors with a key, especially at night.
- Install automatic motion lights where your vehicles are parked.
- Don’t leave tools or objects in the garden which can be used to force entry into your home and make sure garden gates are locked.
Parish Council Minutes
Council has decided to put draft versions of the Parish Council minutes on the website in order that parishioners can be informed earlier of matters discussed. Any amendments will be made before the minutes are signed at the next meeting.
