Matters Arising – July 2020

Wendover Markets
The weekly Thursday market returned to Manor Waste on Thursday 11 June, opening at 9am and closing at 3pm. Community safety is paramount, and to establish a safe system of working, only a few traders returned. The parish council are reassessing the situation each week and are planning for all the traders to return over time. A one-way system has been enforced with sanitiser stations positioned at the entry points, and where possible, you are encouraged to use contactless payments. We ask you to follow the set-out guidelines to ensure everyone can shop safely and enjoy the experience. For those who enjoy the monthly Local Produce Market, we are planning to reopen it on Saturday 18 July. Please follow our Facebook page or visit our website for the latest news and updates.


Hampden Pond Update

Wendover Parish council are pleased to confirm the commencement of due diligence activities for the development of the pond into an area where families can meet for picnics, and enjoy the natural environment we endeavour to create, to support wildlife and aquatic plants. WPC envisage a substantive path suitable for the disabled, areas with picnic tables, additional trees to replace those in trauma, and aquatic plants to entice a greater variety of wildlife to the pond. A borehole will also be investigated to maintain a suitable water level, so that fish stock and angling can be reintroduced. It is early days and we have a three-year plan to achieve these goals. The community will be engaged throughout the project to ensure we deliver an area which is practical, appealing, and somewhere Wendover residents can enjoy and be proud of!


Wendover Rocks

Wendover Parish Council is supporting an initiative started by a local resident called Wendover Rocks. To show support for the NHS and key workers we are encouraging people to paint rocks and leave them in the area near the flower trough outside the Clock Tower. If there is a good response, we can then think about casting the pebbles in either concrete or a clear resin at a central point in the village. Let’s see how big our collection can grow!
