From WildCookham

Could you volunteer a little time and expertise?

WildCookham now has a website but we need some help with it.  There is still a limited amount of initial setup work required to input the basic information we want it to contain.  But the main need for help will be in managing it in the future.  We don't see this as a major task and we hope that there is someone who's interested in our aims and work who can spare a little time each month.

The website uses the Wix platform which is a fairly intuitive easy to use system.

If you are interested and would like to have a chat about it please contact us at wildcookham@gmail.com or phone Mike Copland on 07739 337105.

Yes, I remarked on this to Mrs Birdman only this morning. About 4:30 I think the first one I heard? One of the links which discusses this is at https://afo.heathrowconsultation.com/consultation-topics/night-flights-early-morning-arrivals/

Planes seem to be flying over Cookham before 5am in the morning. What will it be like with a third runway?

In July we start to reap the benefit of all that effort earlier in the year. There are a few things still to do but we can lie back and enjoy our garden and bring out the loungers and the Pimms.

Dead head bedding plants and roses, this will to encourage further flowering. Also remove any fallen rose petals to prevent fungal disease forming

Hanging baskets and containers can dry out quickly, particular in the current weather. They may even need topping up as much as twice a day. Also feed regularly to promote flowering.

Faded flower-spikes on lupins, campanula, delphinium, etc. can be cut down to just above a new shoot or leaf. Apply liquid feed to each plant to encourage fresh growth.

Keep onions well-watered so as not to affect the size of the crop. Your onion hoe needs to be busy this month keeping down the weeds.

Remove side shoots on cordon tomatoes and feed regularly with a high potash liquid tomato fertiliser.

Houseplants enjoy spending the summer outside, so find a sheltered spot for them and give them a holiday.

Prune established plum and apricot trees.

Keep picking sweet peas for enjoying as cut flowers, you can do this daily and they will carry on flowering. Feed the plants every 12 days

Prune shrubs that flowered in early summer.

Your garden birds will enjoy a dish of fresh water to both drink from and bathe in – and you’ll get the pleasure of watching them. You can even take some photos for the Garden Awards.

FIRST: We are trying to map, where all the NHW signs are across the Borough, so that we can see gaps.  The Alert system has a piece of software that can do this !  Colin Meads our NHW MSA - Multi Scheme Administrator - for Windsor & Ascot, is doing this and would like your help.  Can you email him please and let him know, where all your NHW signs are.  Just send him the name of the road and an approximate postcode, or mark the signs on a map and scan it to him
 
Pc180f@gmail.com
 
The Alert system, also has a ‘scheme mapping’ facility, so that we can map the extent of all schemes in RBWM and we are encouraging all our members, to go onto https://www.ourwatch.org.uk/ to do this.  Apparently it is a very simple process.  Again, this will show us where the gaps are, so that we can work on covering the whole Borough.
 
John Diack our MSA for the whole Borough, is more than willing to assist anyone with this process.   Can you either try to do this yourself, or email John or Colin for assistance !

This happened in Eton & Wraysbury, but contains useful advice:
 
ETON & ETON WICK:
2/7  Tuesday 9.05 p.m.  Eton.  The owner was at home, when she heard a noise downstairs.  A neighbour then called at the house to say he had just seen 2 men Two offenders are seen on CCTV climbing over a garden fence and walking into the house via a back door which was open.  They appear to have picked up a handbag from the kitchen and exited via the front door.  One of the bank cards was then used.  This is what our Summer Burglary Campaign is all about –ventilation during the hot weather.  If you are doing any gardening, I am sorry, but you must lock any side / back doors every time you go in and out.  It is a pain, but we get opportunist offenders out there who know we do this.  They walk down side accesses and try door handles – particularly if they hear the sound of mowers / hedge trimmers in a rear garden.  They simply then walk in and look for anything left around – usually women’s handbags / keys / cash on countertops in kitchens.  If you walk back in, they are already prepared.  You will say – ‘What are you doing in my kitchen’ !  Their prepared response – ‘I am looking for Jack / John / Mike’ – whatever.  You will be confused – ‘Who’ !  They respond – ‘Doesn’t Jack / John / Mike’ – whatever – live here’ ?  You again respond – ‘Who’ !!!  They are by then on their way to the door – with your handbag / keys / cash – ‘Sorry, wrong house’ !
 
You stand there for a few minutes, totally confused, by what has just happened.  Then you gradually come to and start to look around and notice items missing.  That is when the truth kicks in and you feel such a fool – it was obvious, you have just caught a burglar !
 
Much, much worse, if your children are in the house !!  The real consequences of what could have happened, dawn.  It is never worth the inconvenience of a few seconds to lock and unlock that door several times.  It is the same for windows, during this hot spell.  You can only have windows open, if you are in that room !  If you are at the back in your kitchen, you cannot leave front windows open.  Buy a fan !
We have had cases of people in bungalows leaving ground floor windows of children’s bedrooms open at night. !  DON’T DO IT !
 
1/7  Monday 3 a.m.  Wraysbury.  CCTV has captured a man walking on the drive and trying the passenger side door.  They then walked around the car to the driver’s door.  They crouch down, then open the door.  Car searched – Sat Nav and a bottle of Joop aftershave, and loose change.  He then made off trying to climb over a neighbour’s wall, then decided against it, climbs down and walks off.  The advice for everyone – please 1.  lock your car.  2.  Leave nothing on display or inside visible at night with a torch.  3.  Get a doorbell video camera to protect the property– the footage is brilliant and goes directly to you mobile phone.
 
This happened in Datchet – it may give you a little giggle !
 
3/7  Wednesday 11.25 a.m.  Datchet.  House being renovated – An unusual case.  The owner visited the property and could see someone had broken in, so called the police.  The police attended immediately and searched the house ……… finding the burglar fast asleep on a bed upstairs !!!  A man was arrested upon suspicion of burglary dwelling.
