Thread Bump ....

I note from the Advertiser today (Cookham page 33) that Simmonds, having previously "squeezed" through a
successful application for the building of three houses on the farm buildings site at Woodlands Farm,
is now seeking to erect just the one mansion instead........... ooops, sorry, one dwelling on the same site.

Would this possibly be Simmond's relenting and converting the site into an affordable housing project then for
all those homeless and aggressive "vagrants" from Windsor (sic. councillor S. Dudley)?!
Yeah .... rite!  Grin

Roll up, roll up all ye RBWM Councillors who heartily supported the original Simmonds' application
and let's ensure another 50 - nil approval vote!

PS -  Dudley might be excused on this occasion as he faces a "No Confidence" vote over his hairbrained comments last week...
... ( BUT I would wager he will sail through with the help of all his cronies)!

As you were ... No change then!

Pip pip!

Nominations open today (9/1) for this year’s Community Policing Awards.

The Community Policing Awards take place each year at a ceremony held at Eynsham Hall near Witney in Oxfordshire, in May. This ceremony is now in its seventeenth year and provides an opportunity to recognise and nominate the work of officers, staff and volunteers who have made the greatest contribution to their community over the past year.

Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond in their role? Someone who you believe should be recognised for their hard work and efforts over the last year? Could you provide an example of how they have exceeded what is expected of them?

Winner of Berkshire Community Police Officer 2017, PC Lucy Brydon, said on receiving the award: “It’s great to have the recognition that you’re doing a good job and it’s particularly special that the nomination came from the victim themselves. I feel very passionate about helping people and trying to make a difference for them. To receive a nomination and recognition for my work is a surprise but something I am grateful for.”

There are seven categories this year:

Do you know a neighbourhood police officer who has made a difference to your community? Nominate your Community Police Officer 2018
Can you think of a PCSO who has made an outstanding contribution to your community? Nominate your Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) 2018
Do you know a Special Constable who has gone above and beyond to serve your community? Nominate your Special Constable 2018
Do you know someone who has helped to improve diversity in your community? Nominate your Diversity Champion 2018
Do you know a cadet who supports fellow cadets, shows initiative, supports community events, is committed to and is an advocate for the police force? Nominate your Cadet 2018
Do you know a volunteer who actively supports the police and volunteers to work within a team in Thames Valley Police? Nominate your Volunteer 2018
Do you know a volunteer who assists with community concerns and enforcing the law? Nominate your Community Volunteer 2018

Don’t miss the chance to nominate your local hero, nominations close on February 26.

Only starting a new thread because I can't find the right old one - apologies.

Anyway, it would appear that clearance work has started, just thought other interested parties might like to know.

James, never mind the 1800s and 1947, the last flood in Cookham (2014 if my memory is right) saw the army being called in to assist, and before you ask it was because it almost reached 1947 levels and if it hadn't finally stopped raining, the Environment Agency expected the level to go even higher than in that year.  Lots of people had to move out of their homes and there were mobile toilets and showers provided in some parts for use by resident who could stay but could not use their normal facilities.

Yes I agree Monty as  long as they don't turn their eyes northward. It seems they have poor memories or poor record keeping that in 1947 the whole bottom floor of Skindles, better known as "Swindles!" was flooded Thank God a lot of Cookham is in a flood plain area. Remember the floods of the 1800's and 1947 will reoccur again, and there is no way of preventing it.

Yes, I'm back from my Maori Christmas on the island of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Which you can find on Google Earth and punch in Rarotonga.

We’re starting 2018 by asking more members of the public to get active and involved in policing matters affecting our communities in Thames Valley.

We want you to have your say about what matters most to you - working with us to identify priorities and solve local issues.

Anyone can contribute to local policing, regardless of age or background.

You don’t have to have a lot of time to spare or commit to travelling long distances – we’ve got a role to suit everyone. You can even get involved from the comfort of your own home.

Below are just a few ways you can get active in your community:

Community Forums: Open to all members of the public, Community Forums are held both online and in person at times to suit everyone. They let you have a say on what matters most to you, enabling us to work together to solve issues in your area.

Independent Advisory Groups: Independently chaired by members of the community, IAGs meet four times a year and help shape the way we work and the service we deliver. IAG members represent their communities, sharing their views on policing issues affecting local people and challenging them when necessary.

Cadet Leaders: Our Cadet Leaders help inspire and support our young Police Cadets, developing their skills and confidence. They assist with weekly meetings as well as supporting activities and events in the local community. Cadet Leaders need to be over 18 and able to commit to one evening a week with some additional hours when required.

Fraud and Cyber Crime Prevention Volunteers: Work closely alongside officers and staff to help raise awareness and understanding of fraud and cyber related crime, arranging and attending events as well as offering advice and guidance to both members of the public and businesses.
You can apply for the above roles via the vacancies section of our website.

For more information about all the ways you can get involved visit our website
or follow our #ActiveCommunities campaign on social media.
