November Bulletin (2015)

Is your Hedge or Tree overhanging the public highway?

Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) on behalf of Buckinghamshire County Council, would remind home and land owners that it is their responsibility to keep the highway free from overhanging trees, shrubs and overgrown bushes etc. Landowners must ensure that there is no obstruction or partial obstruction to the footway or carriageway.

TfB regularly makes inspections and also receives reports regarding obstructions on the highway. If you are notified, TfB would ask that you arrange to have any obstruction cut back within 14 days. Should you be unable to complete the work by the end of this period of notice, TfB may arrange for the work to be carried out and may claim reimbursement from the landowner for reasonable expenses following completion of the works, in accordance with Section 154(4) of the Highways Act.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter and please do not hesitate to contact 01296 382416 to discuss this further should you wish, and also, if needed, how TfB may be able to assist you in carrying out these works. overhanging_trees1

Defibrillator Demonstration (November 2015)

Many of you will have noticed the recently-installed
Automated External Defibrillator contained within the yellow cabinet
adjacent to the new notice board outside the school.

On Monday 9th November 2015 there will be an AED demonstration
to which all villagers are invited and encouraged to attend.

Lives have been saved by the prompt use of these devices.
Please come along and learn how it is to be used in a cardiac emergency situation.

Sam McGhee, our volunteer Community First Responder will be assisting,
along with Del Flint the local CFR trainer.
The session will begin at 7pm in the Village Hall,
and will be followed by a Parish Council meeting.

We hope to see you there.
