Community Safety Team Springs into Action with Shed Safety Advice
The Chiltern and South Bucks Community Safety Partnership held four tool marking and advice events across the two districts in April. Events took place at South Heath Garden Centre, Wyevale Garden Centre in Beaconsfield, Van Hage in Chenies and Wickes in Chesham.

We would like to welcome all who have moved into Ley Hill or Botley and hope this Newsletter proves useful in providing details of what is going on in this locality.
The date of the Produce and Flower Show this year is Saturday 12th September. Although full details and entry schedules will be available in the Summer edition of N. & V. which comes out in July, it is not too early to think about taking photos (see page 13) or to decide what to plant in gardens and greenhouses as possible prize-winning entries. To quote a lottery slogan “You gotta be in it to win it!”.
Now winter is behind us we look forward to all the events in and around the area and hope you will continue your support for them.
We wish you all a Happy Easter Ed.
Copy for the next edition should reach us by 3rd July 2015
