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.
