Human + Nature with Aviva, arranged an informative exhibition on 18th November that took place at the Tylers Green Middle School, many local residents attended and were able to view the creative plans and raise concerns they had. This exhibition provided feedback to the team that will inform their designs, approaches and plans for a new settlement in the Gomm Valley. These plans will soon be in their final draft prior to submission to Wycombe Council for outline planning consent.

The Bucks Free Press dated 24th November published an extensive report which is well worth a read.

Penn and Tylers Green commemorated the centenary of the end of the First World War with a special Battle’s Over beacon-lighting ceremony on Tylers Green Common. This short video summarises the event.

The Battle’s Over ceremony, which began at 6.45pm on Sunday 11 November, was part of the nationwide commemorative event taking part at over 1,000 locations throughout the country at the same time. A beacon was lit at 7pm symbolising an end to the darkness of war and a return to the light of peace.

Fifty-eight crosses bearing the names of men associated with Penn and Tylers Green who died in the war were installed on the common over the Remembrance weekend.

According to the Home office, homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures. Good window locks and strong deadlocks can make a big difference. Taking just a few steps can make a big difference in keeping your home safe from burglary. So here are some tips:

  • Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you’re just out in the garden.
  • Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox)
  • Install a visual burglar alarm (as part of a suite of prevention measures – a burglar alarm on its own will not prevent entry to your home)
  • Install good outside lighting
  • Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property
  • Leave radios or lights in your house on a timer to make the property appear occupied
  • Make sure the fences around your garden are in good condition
  • Secure bikes at home by locking them to an immovable object inside a locked shed or garage
  • Keep ladders and tools stored away; don’t leave them outside where they could be used to break into your home
  • Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property
  • Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges
  • Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with Immobilise (opens in a new window)
  • Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.
  • Store any high-value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe or bank vault

Doors and windows

In most burglaries, the criminals break into the house or flat through the door, either by forcing the lock or kicking it in. So make sure your doors are strong and secure. Home security and DIY shops sell inexpensive, key-operated locks to fit most kinds of windows. Fit window locks with keys to all downstairs windows and those upstairs that are easy to reach.

Going away on holiday

Make your home look like someone is living in it:

  • Use automatic timer-switches to turn your lights and radios on when it goes dark
  • Cancel any newspaper or milk deliveries
  • Use the Royal Mail’s ‘keep safe’ service – they keep your mail for up to 2 months while you’re away. Mail sitting on your doorstep is a sign that you are away
  • Trusted neighbours may be able to help you by collecting your post, opening and closing curtains and they could park their car on your driveway
  • Avoid discussing holiday plans on public social networking sites – burglars can use any information you post on there to their advantage
