Thames Valley Police and Oxfordshire County Council have joined forces to combat county drug lines. Filmed for Channel 4’s Dispatches programme, ‘Britain’s Child Drug Runners’ shows police officers and social services working together in tackling the exploitation of vulnerable children to transport drugs in Oxford, Banbury and the surrounding areas.

The documentary aired last night (Wednesday 13 November) and can be watched on demand here:

Detective Chief Inspector Lewis Prescott-Mayling said: “County drug lines have a horrifying impact on children, their families and the community around them. We are pleased to be able to bring this to light through our involvement in this documentary.

“This is not an issue that is seen in Oxfordshire alone. County drugs lines affects towns and cities across the Thames Valley area and the UK. By working closely with social services and local organisations, we are determined to ensure that these crimes are stopped and vulnerable children are protected.”

Following the airing of the documentary, Thames Valley Police will be hosting an online Q&A Engage session on the documentary and county drug lines on Thursday 21 November between 6 and 8pm. This will provide an opportunity to ask any questions raised by the documentary, which can be answered by our officers. Please check the Thames Valley Police social media channels in the coming week for further details of how you can get involved. The Engage site is available here:

Please remember to comment on the revised Borough Local Plan as part of the RBWM public consultation. 270 new homes for Cookham are being proposed - 200 of those on land at Lower Mount Farm. Development would be on Green Belt Land (need I say more) and have a massive detrimental impact on infrastructure (roads, GPs, schools etc.).

Consultation closes on 15 December 2019.

WildCookham has been asked to lend a hand at Cookham Dean Primary School.  The school has its own pond to help children take an interest in the plants and animals that live in it and they've asked us to help in some clearance work.  We'd love to see anyone who can join us on Sunday 24th November to help clean up the pond. We will be starting at 10:00 and finishing about 13:00. Please bring your wellies, secateurs/pruning saws. And contact Derek Tyler on if you are able to help.

Windsor Dials multi-storey car park will continue to offer temporary midweek parking until Tuesday 31 December, in addition to the existing weekend offering.
Until recently, the car park has only been available to the public on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays, but since 30 September spaces have been available seven days a week, and this is to continue until the end of the year.
The existing tariff will apply, including discounts for Advantage Card holders, and the car park is open 24 hours a day.
Cllr Samantha Rayner, lead member for culture, communities and Windsor, said: “We are delighted that Windsor Dials car park will offer additional parking through to the end of the year, and are happy that the space is being utilised fully.
“We look forward to Windsor being busy with the many Christmas events and wonderful shopping opportunities, and would like to thank Windsor Dials for helping to increase our parking on offer during this time.”

Windsor Dials is a pay-and-display car park with 250 spaces, including designated disabled bays. For more information, visit:

From a Cookham Resident

I would like to send a message of thanks to the extremely kind hearted and compassionate lady who took the time and trouble during her journey last night to move our lovely cat Tilly to safety after finding her on Dean Lane, Cookham Dean. Around 8.30/9pm she had been hit by a car and left in the road. The lady moved her to safety then knocked on doors until she found the right house, so we were able to have a few last precious moments with her at home before she passed away.

In the panic we did not take the lady’s name or thank her properly, so I hope this message somehow finds her to say how grateful we are. Middle aged lady, blonde hair, red jacket, had her daughter in her car, traveling along Dean Lane Monday evening 8.30/9pm.

As for the person who was probably driving too fast to stop (Dean Lane is 30mph) and who left her for dead, you are disgusting.

Just to remind everyone that part of the point of these messages is to make you aware of what crimes are currently happening in your area, so that you can take appropriate precautions - but also - to remind you - did you see anything that may be possibly be connected.  Someone hanging around that drew your attention, a car parked up which was out of place, a few streets away from a crime.  Do you have a doorbell video ?  You may not have been the victim of a crime, but if a crime took place near you, were you targeted, but ignored because your security was better ?  Your video may hold vital clues, so if you see a report of a crime near you, or perhaps the offender might have walked along your road to get to where the crime took place, please check it.
Anything suspicious should be reported to us either via the 101 number, or more easily, via online reporting on the Thames Valley Police website.
