It does look a if someone really does want it blocked rather than just dumping rubbish.

The metal bridge over Strande water, at the back of CIM has been blocked by black wrapped bales of silage.  So no-one can walk, ride, cycle or whatever across the stream at that point.

It's been in use as a bridleway and footpath for as long as I can remember (over 40 years) so who ordered this to be done and how can we get it cleared?

Does anyone know what happened to Cookham Bespoke Interiors in the High Street? It looks like they have closed down having taken money off people and not delivering the goods.

FIRST - ANOTHER REQUEST FOR HELP:
The Maidenhead Voluntary Car Service - MVCS (Charity number 281385) - is a small vital charity.  We drive clients to doctor's surgeries, dentists hospital, podiatry and eye appointments.  Our clients, are usually elderly and infirm. We wait for clients at the appointment and then drive them home. A small charge per mile, is invoiced to the client, each month.
 We are looking for and would really appreciate extra drivers and office help As a volunteer, the time you give, would be whatever fits in with your family and lifestyle.

Office hours are 9.30 to 11.30am Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  

This is a small group, doing a really brilliant and appreciated service.  They ask for your help, at times that suit you.  If you want to find out more about how you can help people in need and make a huge difference to their lives - please contact the Chair - Maggie Kearney, on 07757 228266 or kearneymaggie@gmail.com

NEXT:  The car park Scam in a supermarket Car Park in Sunningdale.  I have been asked to circulate this by our Smarter Resolution Team.  The police will be putting up warning signs and organising additional patrols:
 
Hi
 
We have had a Team of criminals targeting the above location over the past 18 months.
 
Offenders normally work in pairs, they identify their victims (normally elderly females / males) and follow them around the store. They will then ‘shoulder surf’ them, when they pay for their shopping, to obtain their pin number.  They then follow them to their car. One of them will distract the Victim, as they are loading their shopping and the other will dip their purse / wallet. Their cards are normally used within the hour. Suspect are mostly men, well dressed and very confident, in their tactics.
 
This is a common theme and that car park, is by far their preferred target.
 
Although offences have slow down over recent months, they have started up again and we had one earlier this afternoon.

I had heard they wanted to set up some sort of cookery training place there. That is no excuse for how it looks now unless they are in negotiations with someone.

Maybe Watchman, that the local barn converting landowner should take it over and run it. It would appease the spirit of his great grandmother who use to run it. This was after she gave up being a river Thames bargee.

Has anyone driven past The Chequers in Cookham Dean Bottom recently (? The Mango Lounge ?)

It's an absolute bl**dy disgrace.

Dilapidated, overgrown grass and weeds, rotting outdoor furniture and allegedly, rats seen running around the vicinity.

This used to be a wonderful pub and eaterie when it was the Chequers not so long back, so what's happened to it
to make it the forlorn mess it is now?
Cannot the owners be held responsible?
Do the owners even care?

I've heard a lot of hollow 'promises' of returning it to being a restaurant again, but not much evidence of that ever happening.

Come on you Parish Councillors ....  step in and demand that something is done?
