Macmillan Coffee Morning 2018 - Update

Sharon, Joanne and Kate are very happy to let you know that we raised a grand total of £2000 at our recent coffee morning in aid of MacMillan, bolstered by a donation from Rothschild’s of £500.  The final figure will also increase because of gift aid so a truly staggering amount.

The generosity of all who came is staggering, so thank you to everyone who came and donated, and to those who couldn’t make it but who still put money through our letterboxes! 

To see so many of you, including lots of new faces, for a catch up, some coffee, cake and some retail therapy was absolutely fabulous.

A thank you must go to Starbucks who provided the coffee, sugars and cups for free.

But most of all, a big thank you to Sharon Hearn for hosting us in her beautiful home. 

We’ll be back next year so we hope to see you all again.

Telephone Fraud Scam

We are receiving lots of calls regarding residents, especially in the Henley area, being called by someone claiming to be an police officer from Scotland Yard. This officer then attempts to scam the victim out of money by claiming the victim’s bank is under investigation and they need the victim to withdraw money to then be handed over to police as it may be counterfeit.

Please know Police would never ask anyone to withdraw money as part of an investigation or ask you to purchase expensive items. Please pass this message on to elderly relatives or neighbours, as they are most at risk. 

Kind regards

Neighbourhood Plan Update: October 2018

Since the  May AGM and 'Pop up' discussion sessions at The Plowden Arms and The Baskerville, there has not been an update on the neighbourhood plan for residents. The summer holiday period did not halt progress. There has been considerable activity, including the completion of the Landscape and Strategic Environmental Assessments and the completion of the important draft pre-submission consultation  document, inclusive of  a 're-write' to take account of the Thames Farm 99 houses being attributed to the Lower Shiplake settlement. 

Currently SODC are reviewing the document, agreed by the Parish Council and Steering Group, with meetings and discussion taking place as required to ensure the plan conforms with requirements.  More information will follow shortly. In the meantime you catch up on specifics of progress and changes by clicking here ...  SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER 2018 UPDATES.
