Horses and ponies will be becoming a rare breed in Cookham soon.  Such a shame when there used to be such a thriving equestrian community in the Cookhams.

I hope everyone manages to find somewhere to go. Not an easy task these days.

Hmph, what a waste of column inches that was.  A load of historical guff, genealogy of Mrs May, and that there's too much green belt.  The best bit for me, was where he said that the town has suffered from being knocked about by developers and sacking Council staff.

Not really news at all; now if it was an in depth article, and completely non-biased piece of investigative journalism it might have been a worthwhile read.

All our Neighbourhood Teams were in London yesterday, working with and being trained by City Police, who came down to work with us, during the summer, at the two Royal weddings.
There was a brilliant input for us from ‘Op Servitor’, dealing with how to recognise ‘Hostile Surveillance’ of potential targets, for disruption.  Experts have been out and about in Windsor and located every spot, anyone carrying out hostile surveillance would need to stand in, to observe, whatever they need to know.  We can then concentrate on anyone in those positions, as well as just looking at everyone else.
There was also an input from the City Police dog handling team.  It was amazing to hear what the dogs are being trained to sniff out now.  It is no longer just tracking people or sniffing out drugs and explosives.
Everyone is anxious to get out there and practice their new skills !
6/2  Wednesday 8.20 a.m. / 10.40 a.m.  Car Park, Grove Road.  Car passenger window smashed, camera hidden in the footwell stolen.
7/2  Thursday midnight / 3 a.m.  Blackamoor Lane.  CAR ENTERED BY UNKNOWN MEANS - loose change stolen.
5/2 - 6/2  Tuesday 3.30 p.m. / Wednesday 4.30 p.m.  Westwood Green, Cookham.  Shed break - door jemmied.  Shed searched - nothing stolen.
6/2  Wednesday  6.30 p.m. / 9.40 p.m.  Restaurant, Bisham Road, Bisham.  Car rear windscreen smashed - Rucksack containing LAPTOP and chargers stolen.
8/2  Friday 7.25 a.m.  Paget Drive.  The owner awoke to find their 2 cars stolen from the driveway.   A black Audi S3 index AM ** SHP and a dark blue BMW 5 series LT ** FGN.  They may be parked up somewhere nearby for 24 hours to see if they have Trackers fitted.  If they have not been recovered, they may not have Trackers activated.
Just to confirm, S. 61 notice was served on the unauthorised encampment last night at Braywick Gold Club car Park at 9 p.m.  They have now left.  The Borough have sent in a clean up team, but were pleasantly surprised that it was not as bad as anticipated
5/2 - 6/2  Tuesday 11 p.m. / Wednesday 7.15 a.m.  Tithe barn Drive.  The aggrieved went down to find the rear door of their van open.  The owner was sure it was locked, but not alarmed.  5th time, tools have been stolen, 3rd time from this van.

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) would like to hear from you.

The OPCC is launching a campaign to raise awareness of relationship abuse so that people who are experiencing it, identify with it and potentially seek help. 

It will be launched under the branding of Victims First.  Victims First supports victims and witnesses of crime across the Thames Valley and is managed by the OPCC.

Relationship abuse is not solely physical abuse but emotional and controlling abusive behaviours. It is also called coercive control.

The OPCC have developed a survey to gather experiences of relationship abuse. The data gathered from the survey will support the campaign.  All responses are anonymous.

If you would like to complete the survey, you can do so at

Hi James, Thank you for your kind reply to my e-mail. Yes, my Grandmother would have been older at that time. It's strange as the verses in the book are fairly religious in content but all very loving so not the kind of thing you might expect in a children's home so I am struggling a little. I know her Mother went on to marry and have another Daughter but I don't think she kept my Grandmother who I know spent her adult life in Birmingham. How she came to be there is a mystery. I don't know of the process involved in those days in placing a child in a home and if they may have been sent further afield? I have tried everywhere I can think of but no joy, unfortunately. Thank you again for your help.
