For the past couple of weeks, we have been raising awareness of online child abuse as part of our Hidden Harm campaign.
The internet is a huge part of most of our lives, especially for the younger generation, and while it brings a great deal of positive opportunities unfortunately it can be misused by some people.
Itís therefore really important that we all understand the risks associated with being online and take some simple steps to help keep children safe:
Understand the types of social media available to children and young people including age restrictions - take a look at Net Aware, developed by the NSPCC and O2, which can help you explore the sites, apps and games that they use most.
Know what your child is doing online and talk to them about it - no matter how old they are itís important to have regular conversations about the types of sites theyíre accessing, what the dangers are and how they can stay safe. The NSPCCís Share Aware pages gives some good advice on how to start these conversations.
Set up and manage parental controls on all your familyís devices - watch our videos on how you can quickly and easily do this on a PS4 and Xbox One. You can also call the free NSPCC and O2 Helpline on 0808 800 5002 to chat to an expert advisor.
Reassure your children that they can talk to you about anything that is worrying them - we can all do our best to keep children safe online but sometimes things can go wrong, so itís important that they know where to go should this happen. Encourage them to talk to you or alternatively contact Childline on 0800 1111 for free confidential advice and support.

We now turn to a 1931 photo of the Holy Trinity Church Choir, taken in the Vicarage Garden. The two notable characters in the photo are the then vicar, Canon Batchelor and Mrs. Kate Bird, the previous vicars daughter who lived at Glennore in Berries Road and now a nursing home.

So turn up your sound.

To me the Magnolia blooms always heralds Spring. Our shopping centre has planted two six foot trees and they have just come into flower. This of course cast my mind back and the Spencer painting in Berries Road looking from the magnolia through the trees right up to Rowborough.

Turn up your sound.

A Sri Lankan cricketer, Sahan Nanayakkare, from Colombo will be playing for Cookham Dean CC this summer, and also leading coaching for youngsters

He is 22 years old, an avid cricket fan, and has no special dietary requirements (eats all meats).

The club does not currently have his accommodation sorted, and so would be greatful for any offers of assistance. He will be here for the months of May, June, July and August, but even help for only a portion of that time would be very much appreciated

The club is of course able to pay rent on Sahanís behalf. See below for a link to his profile on his Agents website:

Please contact Ben Millar on 07854 218194 or, if any questions

Thanks a lot

Or surveying ready for the housing estate to be built in Bournend?

Probably trying to work out how to get an extra 1000 cars across the bridge during the rush hour, once they have built the new housing estate in Bourne End. Sad

Right on both counts I should think.  Our poor village and bridge will be gridlocked by all the extra traffic if that estate gets built.

OK, so I'm being nosey - just wondering if anyone knows what was being surveyed for in the field by the parish cemetery?  Hope there isn't another ridiculous planning application about to be foisted on us.  If that field gets built on Cookham  will become a conurbation of Maidenhead.

Shame the voucher has been defaced - I assume someone at Mr Cod did that?

I think even local fund raising events must be covered by some legalities concerning the donating and claiming of prizes; but I'm not sure where you would find out, maybe trading standards?  I think the fete organisers would be horrified to hear that you've not been able to claim your prize, its pretty shoddy in my opinion.

Bunds are only useful when built in conjunction with a heavy clay subsoil. When built on a gravel, it is worse than useless, except to walk on, and then that is not always safe either, due to the power of hydraulics. I grew up with an old saying singing in my head. "Fire and Water, are good servants, but poor masters!"
