Thanks go to all those who came along to our “Save the Children” Christmas event in November. With Christmas card sales, refreshments, cakes and a tombola we managed to raise more than £600 for Save the Children’s work at home and abroad.

Chilterns MS Centre says: THANK YOU HASE OSBORNE
John Osborne gives generously of his time and energy to serve as our treasurer, and over and above this, he and his wife Helen are tireless supporters of our MS Centre.  On behalf of the patients, staff and volunteers we want to say a huge thank you. The annual golf day has raised a much needed £2865 for our Centre!

Theft at St Mary’s Churchyard

Theft at St Mary’s Churchyard

On Tuesday 30 October I took my two young children to lay some flowers on my recently deceased mother's grave.

After locking the car we walked solemnly in the stunning autumn sunshine towards her burial site. The calm tranquillity was shattered however, when, no more than 30 seconds after leaving the car, a red transit van arrived, occupant jumped out, smashed the window and stole my handbag and some recently bought clothes leaving me shaken and my children in tears.

I realise I was very careless in leaving my possessions on show but as her resting place was close to the car (within view) and we were gone for a such a short time I thought it would be safe.

Please be warned that however beautiful your surroundings, there may be people lurking whose consciences allow them to prey on those in mourning.

My faith in humanity was somewhat restored when on Wednesday morning I had a call from a dog walker who had found my purse in a hedge in Nash Lee Lane. No cash obviously but all my cards and my drivers licence were intact .

Michael “Spike” France

We recently received a letter addressed to our home on Aylesbury Road from a
gentleman named Ken Meades of North Carolina. He is hoping to get in touch
with Michael 'Spike' France with whom he served in the Royal Signals in
Cyprus between 1948-50. If anyone is able to shed any light please contact me via Wendover News.
