The organisers from P&TGRS and the Penn Surgery Patient Participation Group welcomed Adam Poland of Bucks Tec at the training day held on 12th October. Almost 100 residents joined us to learn how important it is to be able to assist if someone is found unconscious. we learnt how to do CPR and how a defibrillator works. We were able to practise CPR on mannequins and how straightforward it is to use a defibrillator. The sessions were completed with a handout sharing where the 24 defibrillators are located around the village and Hazlemere. ( please see below for a copy).We plan to arrange further training in 2020 so please look out for the dates. THANKS TO ALL WHO ATTENDED AND HOPE YOU FOUND IT USEFUL!

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

Save the date and come along to the Holy Trinity Church and enjoy the historic sites.

Heritage Open Days Thur 6– Sun 9 September 2018

The church is open throughout Heritage Open Day weekend:

Thursday & Friday –  8.30am to 3.30pm.

Saturday  –  11am  to 5pm.  Tours of the church from 2pm. Refreshments available.

Sunday    –  1 to 5pm.  From 2 pm there will be tours of the church and the bell tower will be open.  Refreshments available.

The oldest part of the church was built in the late 12th-century.  The nave, the font and a stone coffin survive from this period, the remainder being mostly early 14th-century, with the chancel and Lady Chapel partly rebuilt in the 18th-century.

The ‘Penn Doom’, which is a rare 15th-century painting of the ‘Last Judgement’ on oak panels 12 feet wide, is in place above the chancel arch.  It has twice been on display in the  Victoria and Albert Museum in London.  Leaflets and postcards of it are on sale.

There is also an attractive arrangement of 14th-century Penn floor tiles set into the floor of the Lady Chapel as part of a millennium project.

Heraldic shields in the roof portray nine centuries of English history. Also in the church are the family monuments to the Penns, Curzons and Howes.  Six of William Penn’s (the Quaker and founder of Pennsylvania) grandchildren are buried in a large family vault under the centre of the nave. There is also a plaque commemorating three sons of the parish clerk who tragically died within months of each other during the Second World War.

An illustrated leaflet outlining the history of the church will be on sale with other historical booklets.

We have had 3 successful walks on the Back Common, noting the birds we saw and heard. We recorded the data on the chart in the Village Hall. We are preparing a report that will be compared to the census data from earlier events, then will publish it in Village Voice.
If you have noted the birds visiting your garden over the last 3 months, please submit your records to the Village Hall and they will be added to the chart and overall census,
Thanks for your support and we hope you enjoyed participating in this project.
Spring birds on Back Common


Spring birds in your garden


The last census of spring birds on the Back Common was carried out by a group led by Eric Britnell back in 1986. Earlier ones took place in the ‘60s and ‘70s. We hope there will be sufficient interest and support to do this much more regularly in future in order to record trends in the species of local birds.
