Come along to Winter Hill Golf Club for some festive cheer and hear all the WildCookham news!

Thursday, December 13, 2018
7:30 PM to 9:30 PM

Winter Hill Golf, Club, Grange Road, Cookham

How to find us
Straight up Terry's Lane from the White Oak, then turn right at the crossroads into Grange Lane. Follow the road round to the left and the golf club is there at the end. Or straight up Grange Rd and straight across the crossroads.

https://www.meetup.com/WildCookham/events/256265308/

20 species have recently been selected as priorities as part of Wild Maidenhead's Biodiversity Action Plan, they're looking for support in monitoring this mix of birds, mammals, insects and plants. We'll have the leaders of our various surveys groups reporting on their work and there'll be opportunities to ask questions and also sign up for future activities.

2018 has been a packed year for WildCookham. We've been on safaris looking for glow worms, birds, lizards, tadpoles and a multitude of insects. We've had talks on biodiversity, gardening for wildlife, entomology and veteran trees and we've even taken on our very own nature reserve! Our December meeting is all about celebrating the progress we have made in the past year and planning our activities together for the year ahead. And we need you there! Come and hear the latest on the surveys we have undertaken, find out how you can help with planned 2019 surveys and other projects (including the Harris Woodbridge Nature Reserve in Cookham Dean), learn about our Wild Gardens programme for 2019 and influence what we prioritise in the Cookhams in the year ahead.

It's now clear - from all the reports and news we get from around the world - that we face a major environmental challenge largely of our own making. This meeting is the one when you can really help us make a difference in our own backyard. Inevitably there will be mince pies and Christmas cheer too!

Please join us. As ever this event is free to attend, but feel free to put donations in the collection box.

This is all crime over the last 48 hours.
 
It is a really good start to our Winter Burglary Campaign
 
NO BURGLARIES ACROSS RBWM IN THE LAST 48 HOURS !
 
Sorry there haven’t been many crime updates, but we have been working on our Winter Burglary Campaign.
 
A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY
Come and say Hello
 
As part of the Winter Burglary Campaign which started this month, officers will be in Wessex Way Shops, on Friday 7th December, between 5 p.m. / 9 p.m. with our new ‘AdVan’.  A mobile advertising van, with screens along the sides, showing various police crime prevention messages.  
 
Please come along and speak to our officers, to find out more information about how not to be a burglary victim.  You can meet PCSO Emily Baker, PCSO Aneta Welnitz and PCSO Graham Knight.  We are also hoping to have a representative, from the RBWM Community Wardens.
 
If you want more advice / Crime prevention information, you can always contact a member of your Neighbourhood Team, by emailing them, on their Group email address, set out below, above your particular Neighbourhood.
 
You can of course use the 101 number, or make contact online.  If you want to supply is with information / intelligence in total anonymity, you can phone The Crimestoppers Charity on 0800 555 111
 
First a message from the Borough:
 
The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Ageing Well Strategy, will outline how organisations across Borough, will work together, to help you live healthy, active and happy lives, for as long as possible and if you need more help, how they will ensure they work together, to support your needs.
 
Can you help?

Once they know what is important to you, as you grow older, they can plan to make sure your priorities are met. They would like your help, to develop an ‘Ageing Well Strategy’, that will run from 2019 to 2023.

They are asking anyone who might be interested, including professionals and older people, to complete the questionnaire below, so they have your thoughts and ideas, at this early stage.

Over the last few months they have already spoken to many people across the Royal Borough. The main issues identified that might impact on our abilities to age well include:
Transport and access to services
Improved access to information and advice
Improved ways of working between community and health services to support healthy ageing
Access to a range of social activities
Access to affordable housing that supports people to live independently as they age
Loneliness and isolation
Don't delay, have you say now
Take part in the survey

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead is committed to ensuring we take our time to provide an effective Borough Local Plan which is right for our residents.

Following a recent letter from the Inspector via the programme officer, officers will be continuing to work on flooding and site selection.

Public consultation will take place on these sections to gather views from our residents before any further hearings take place.

Cllr David Coppinger, Cabinet Member for Planning, said: “We want to hear the views of our residents and it is important to take time to ensure we deliver an effective plan for the borough.

“It is not unusual for councils to carry out further work on their plans during the examination period given that Inspectors are required to work with councils to assist them to get a plan in place.

“The council is in regular correspondence with the Inspector and will continue with the further work in relation to flooding and site selection.”

The correspondence via the programme officer has been published on the council website.

Once adopted, the local plan will run retrospectively from 2013 until 2033 and will help guide where developments including housing, leisure, retail, office and open space should be sited and how they will fit in with existing and planned infrastructure.

The Borough Local Plan will shape the next two decades of growth and facilitate new homes and infrastructure in the borough.

For more information about the Borough Local Plan visit: www3.rbwm.gov.uk/blp

FIRST: A report from Action Fraud.  A resident in Wraysbury has received a letter from an Insurance company asking for more details re car Insurance.  He has not requested a change in his Insurance and is concerned this was someone fraudulently using his identity.
 
If anything like this happens to you, you must do something about it quickly, not just put the letter away and think it’s just a mistake.
 
FOLLOW IT UP ASAP AND INFORM WHOEVER IT IS, THAT YOU HAVE NOT REQUESTED, WHATEVER IT IS !

To one and all in Cookham and all those who follow my entries on the Discussion Page. A very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous Brexit New Year.
I am off this morning on my annual jaunt to Rarotonga, the capital island of the Cook Islands. Where I will spend a traditional Maori Christmas. I will be posting once more on my return in early January. I know that at least one Cookham couple have visited the island.

I saw that too.

Also has anyone else noticed the application for an access road across the fields from the B4447 maidenhead road to the livery stables at the bottom of Strande Lane? 

I know the people who have applied for this won't thank me for bringing it to the attention of the world at large; and probably neither will the Strande Lane residents, but I do feel something like this that will affect more than just a few people should be brought to the attention of everyone.

As part of the Stronghold focus in RBWM this month, officers will be in Wessex Way Shops, between 9 a.m. / 5 p.m.  with our new AdVan.  A mobile advertising van with a screen along the sides, showing various police messages.  The aim is to raise awareness of ‘County Lines’ - organised drug trafficking, out of London.
 
Please come along and speak to our officers, to find out more information on how we are tackling drug related serious organised crime, in your area.
 
The idea is to let you know what you should be aware of, to ‘spot the signs’ of County Lines activity in your area.  Many of you will have heard about County Lines as they have received a lot of coverage on TV.  How to ‘spot signs’ of exploitation, of vulnerable people.  County Lines locate vulnerable people and ‘Cuckoo’ them.  They manipulate the most vulnerable, moving into their homes and dealing drugs from there.  If neighbours become suspicious, they leave and move onto another target, leaving devastation in their wake.
 
If you believe - or are even suspicious that a neighbour may be subject to this form of abuse, you can let us know by phoning the 101 number, or online.  If you want total anonymity, you can phone The Crimestoppers Charity on 0800 555 111
 
Help us to help you and your community
 
NEXT: A case of employing a cold caller:
26/11  Monday 10.30 a.m.  Compton Drive.  The owner was cold called by a man who offered to clean her gutters and cut back some vegetation.  They agreed a price of £85.   He did the work, but left the vegetation behind along with a mess.  She then asked for it to be cleaned up and he mumbled and became verbally aggressive.  She then paid him, but googled his name only to find other people had posted complaints for similar behaviour.  Please remember our NHW Motto
 
I DO NOT BUY GOODS AND SERVICES AT THE DOOR
 
If you need work done, please do not rely on cold callers - even if they say, they have done work for someone down the road.  Ask neighbours or friends for a recommendation before employing anyone !
