A good end to the week - have a good weekend and enjoy the weather - but remember not to leave windows open in a room if you are not inside.  It is going to be hot, so please pay particular attention to any windows you leave open for ventilation !
 
First - some invaluable advice re scams and frauds:
 
Hi
 
I thought I’d reach out, to suggest one of our resources, which may also be worth including in your messages.
 
Given you recommend the Action Fraud initiative, here on this page https://maidenheadcab.org.uk/website-fraud/ are70+ Scams and How to Avoid Them - http://compari.tech/avoid-scams
 
I’m confident this list is the most comprehensive A-Z of common scams, schemes and fraud.
 
If you think this will be useful, could you add a link to this on your website?
 
Please let me know if I can do anything to help.
 
Thanks,
Sophie
 
I am very grateful Sophie - thanks you.

Free compost giveaway to green fingered residents
Residents are being encouraged to come along with their containers and shovels and pick up some free compost as part of the Royal Borough’s compost giveaway in Dedworth.

The event will run from 9.30am until 12.30pm on Saturday 30 June at Clewer Memorial Recreation Ground, Dedworth Road, Windsor.
 
Five tonnes of free compost, made from residents’ own recycled green garden waste, will be given away and is an ideal soil improver for gardens in preparation for the summer.

In addition to the compost, residents will also be able to recycle unwanted small electrical items, pick up free food waste bags, order a new bin and pick up information on recycling.

Residents are asked to come along with their own bags, containers and shovels as the compost will be loose.

Cllr Jesse Grey, cabinet member for environmental services (inc. parking and flooding), said: “This is a great opportunity for environmentally friendly residents to collect some free compost and bring their unwanted or broken small electrical items for recycling at the same time.

“The council’s recycling team will be on hand to provide recycling advice and information about composting. We know how much these compost giveaways are valued by our residents and we hope that this one will be just as successful.

“This is also an opportunity to thank residents and to give them back the results of their very own recycling.”

I'm sorry, I can't let this rest fision, my argument is not weak. Of course I understand that parents will be protective; I was however not referring to you personally- how could I, I don't know you!

I was referring to the 'children do as they like pedestal brigade', whose children run amok in restaurants and pubs, take scooters into supermarkets, scream when they can't get their own way, and have tantrums about going to school.  Surely, this must resonate with more people than me, these children are in action just about everywhere!

Perhaps Fision as you live on the High Road you could WALK to drop your kid/s off - then one less 'Seat-Belt to Gate' car and then walk back to your car to drive to work.

Also - by you doing this - other residents wont have to get up that 10 minutes earlier to fit around your chosen life style - that you are pushing off on others.

I think the High Road is quite safe to walk along.. I know Cookham is changing, but we are not quite in a Ghetto situation as you seemed to be making out with previous posts and again  with this 'Safety' concern.

And I'm pleased you are not spending any more energy on this post - as you obviously will need it for Monday morning Roll Eyes

I honestly can not stand those type of people that keep pushing a 'Children First' attitude. I think this is why I have the approach of - If I like the parents, I like the kids... If I cants stand the parents - I cants stand the kids! (two words spring to mind ' Boarding -School'  Grin)

Clipper - I removed my post the other day as I was in two minds about posting it. Frankly I'm not going to expend any more energy on this subject as I have things to do that are more important. As I said, I also live on High Road and manage - just leave ten minutes earlier.

Paris - I stand by my comment that your parenting point was weak. Parents have every right to be protective of their children and it's not about wrapping them in cotton wool for everything, just making sure primary school children get to school safely.

I went too far with my posts (for which I apologise) which is why I removed them. Perhaps @Watchman you might remove the now defunct quotation?

Really I think one or both of @Paris or @Clipper ought to contact the school to see if a meeting can be arranged where the issues can be discussed. It would be sensible indeed to involve the local residents.

Out of interest, does the school really have a scheme where every child arriving by car is dropped off right outside the gates to be met by another parent or teacher? My first thought on that is that it would cause a fair amount of irritation.
