Unfortunately due to the rapid rise of Covid nationwide and in our Area, Transport Initiatives have informed the Parish Council that their members will not be doing a face to face Drop - In Event on Longwick Transport Vision on Friday 23rd July as they need to keep their members safe.
However, at such short notice the Parish Council have decided to go ahead with the event but as a visual display where you will be able to see what has been suggested, and either add your new ideas via a QR code which can downloaded on your mobile from the panel display or via a paper Questionnaire. The Parish Council will scan back the replies to our Consultant.
For those of you who are unable to attend tomorrow we have provided an online survey link: Please see attached file and for the questionnaire a url
We do look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
The Parish Council have employed a transport consultant to prepare a Transport Vision for Longwick and the surrounding hamlets within the parish.
Following the questionnaire many of you filled in earlier in the year and the discussion groups some of you attended, come and find out what the consultants have proposed to overcome the traffic and transport issues in the parish.
An informal drop-in consultation for local residents and businesses will be held at
Longwick School on Friday 23rd July 1.30-4pm and 5-7.30pm
Come and see us, chat to the people working on this task, ask questions and let us know what you think. What you see is not set in stone and you still have an opportunity to influence the outcome.
It is likely that there will be no official COVID restrictions in place on that day but please could you still wear a mask and observe the current physical distancing rules as not everyone will have been vaccinated.
If you are not able to attend an online version of the exhibition will be available on the Parish Council website near the time along with a form to let you tell us your comments.
If you would like to discuss the above or for more information please contact Councillor Valerie McPherson email@example.com
National Small Charity Week(14-19 June) celebrates and raises awareness of the essential work carried out by small charities in Buckinghamshire. It also offers them the opportunity to participate in training at both a national and local level to equip them with information and skills to overcome challenges and to thrive.
With four out of five charitable organisations in the county considered small (annual income of under £100,000), the vast majority of Bucks not-for-profits have been hit hard by the pandemic which has restricted income generation while driving up demand for services.
If you work or volunteer for a Bucks voluntary organisation which needs help, local charity Community Impact Bucks supports groups at all stages of their development from getting started, to developing policies and procedures, and securing funds and volunteers through online resources, training and events, and one-to-one tailored advice. To find out how the Community Impact Bucks team could help, read its Small but Mighty blog which also gives details on how to receive weekly updates on new funds and resources.

MAKE A CHANGE BECOME A COUNCILLOR
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is calling on all community heroes to step up and become a local (parish and town) Councillor at the 2021 elections.
What do Councillors do?
Local Councillors are the champions of their community who invest time in local projects and issues to the benefit of residents and the neighborhood. Councillors attend to local needs of residents, local groups and businesses, make decisions on local services, collaborate with district and borough councils to adhere to local needs, and progress vital projects to invest in the future of the community.
What do councils do?
Councils lead on community services such as allotments, footpaths, public seating and litter bins, but also larger projects such as the running of local transport, leisure services, youth services and climate change initiatives. These activities are funded by a local tax, called a precept which is determined by the council.
How long does it take?
NALC's Local Councillor Census Survey found that councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work. Council work often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking to local groups and bodies on behalf of the council.
Can I stand for election?
You must be:
• A British citizen, or a citizen of the Commonwealth, or the European Union
• 18 years of age or older
For further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
