Children’s Challenge - Cross Country Relay

Fresh from the success of the Exmoor Expedition, the final Children’s Challenge event for 2018 is a cross-country relay being held at the Culden Faw Estate (near Marlow) on Saturday 7th July. The format is that teams of up to 4 children select a distance (8km, 12km or 20km) and run alternate laps to complete it. All children are welcome, irrespective of speed. It is not a race but an endurance challenge. With all their friends around them, the children should have a lot of raucous fun whilst getting a real sense of satisfaction. There is a well deserved, high quality, medal for every participant. The event is free to enter for all participants and spectators. The only criteria is that each individual raises a minimum of £25 for a charity of their choice via JustGiving and then links it to a “Team" JustGiving page. On a glorious Saturday morning with good music, good coffee and free entry for all - whats not to like! For more information and to register for the event please visit www.thechildrenschallenge.com

Shiplake Community Space Project

Since the NP update provided at the APM, we have had many questions on the Community Space suggestions - what, how and why - particularly at the recent 'Pop Up' sessions. Will Stevens, the SG member who has developed the ideas and recent proposals, liaising with a leading consultancy  for such initiatives, has provided an article capturing the essence of the APM presentation with the possibilities outlined. The article is intended for the June issue of Shiplake News but given the interest shown you can read it now  by clicking here.

It needs to be emphasised that this potential project has been developed based on residents' responses provided in the Shiplake NP Survey (2017), many of which can be clustered under the heading 'How can we make Shiplake a better place?' and specifically Lower Shiplake in this case. (There are 4 potential parish wide projects, which will be presented in the Shiplake NP draft consultation documents and will be available shortly.

I have used the words 'suggestions, possibilities and potential' intentionally because that is what the projects are. With all such projects they will be influenced by resident feedback, due consideration  of all safety aspects and potential impact on local commerce and, yes, how they might be paid for.

David Pheasant & Will Stevens on behalf of the NPSG
