Friends of Burnham Library – The Story Teller – 2nd February 7pm – Burnham Library

posted in: News | 0

A Happy New Year from the Friends of Burnham Library.

Many people who came to our presentation of “Mrs Oscar Wilde” last September were impressed by our Actress and Writer, Lexi Wolfe and a lot of people said to me that we should get her back to do another show.

I am delighted to tell you that we have booked her for her new Show, The Storyteller” on Friday 2nd February at 7.00 for 8.00pm, with our buffet and wine to start with the performance from 8.00pm.

This is appropriate as it is National Storytelling Week and we will be arranging some other storytelling events in the Library especially for Children.

The write up of her show “ “Fascinated with campfire and bardic stories, especially those with a Pagan twist, she has created a relaxed show wherein she can share traditional stories as well as her own.
The stories will include:
The Birth of Sleipnir – The tale of how Odin’s legendary eight-legged horse came into being.
The Lady and The Knight – An a cappella song about love and the wrath of the old gods.
The Wise Woman’s Spell – When a young villager is confronted with unrequited love, he visits the local cunning woman to help resolve his problem.
The Two Brothers – When one brother loses his elder, he covers the earth in search of him.”

Lexi achieved the Commendation for Julian Battersby Young Playwright’s Award in 2014 for her One Act Play, Indiscretion, was nominated Best Supporting Actress at the Short Film Awards in New York City, 2015 and was nominated Best Female Actor at the Buxton Fringe with her debut performance of ‘Mrs. Oscar Wilde’.

Tickets costing £12 for Members of the Friends are £12 and £15 for standard tickets to include our much praised buffet and a glass of wine,

They are available from Library Reception or you can go online to www.friendsofburnhamlibrary.org and book online.

I do hope that you will support this unusual show and enjoy another excellent performance from Lexi.

Make property marking your New Year’s resolution

posted in: News | 0

Chiltern and South Bucks Community Safety Partnership is urging people to take a few minutes to security mark any valuables or high value gifts they may have received.

Many residents will have been lucky enough to have received gifts such as iPads, tablets, cameras, new games consoles and new bikes over the Christmas period, all of which are desirable to thieves. Marking property ensures it can be returned to its rightful owner in the event of it being recovered after a burglary. It also acts as a deterrent to thieves by making the items harder to sell on.

Property should be marked on the back or underneath with a postcode and house number using an ultra violet (UV) pen which are available in most DIY stores.

Larger items, such as bicycles or machinery can be security marked using CRE markers or bike marking labels. The bike label should be attached around the bike frame and your postcode and house number should be written on the label. Another way to security mark your property is CRE marking. Using the marker write your postcode and house number on the item and this can be made permanent by coating the markings with CREMARK’s specially formulated protective lacquer, for more information please visit: www.creproducts.co.uk

Using forensic marking products such as SmartWater and Selecta DNA are also a highly effective way to mark property. A liquid solution is applied giving items either a chemical or DNA code depending on the product used, which is unique to the owner. The solution cannot be seen by the naked eye and is incredibly difficult to remove. It glows under ultraviolet light, allowing the police to detect it.

Unfortunately Christmas offers a lot of opportunities for burglars, bikes and electronic items are worth a lot of money to opportunist thieves, but there are some simple steps people can take to reduce their chances of falling victim.

A few minutes spent marking your valuables and registering them on Immobilise.com is time well-spent. You stand a much better chance of getting your item back in the unfortunate event of it being lost or stolen.

If you would like a free UV pen or bike marking label email communitysafety@chiltern.gov.uk (please note pens are limited to one per household and subject to availability).

Burnham Parish – Vice Chairman’s Walk – 27th December

posted in: Health and Wellbeing, News | 0

Come and join the Parish Council in burning off this year’s Christmas turkey on our annual Vice Chairman’s Walk! 

The walk will take place on 27th December with everyone meeting at 12:45pm in the car park of The Blackwood Arms, Common Lane, SL1 8PP, to set off at 1:00pm.

Unfortunately, it’s not the most access friendly route so please bare that in mind if you have any issues with mobility. However, we are hoping to carry out a review of the route to make it more inclusive for everyone in time for next year’s walk.

After the walk anyone who wishes can come back to the Blackwood Arms and enjoy a meal (at their own expense) with the Vice Chairman, Cllr Marie Hammon.

There is no need to notify the Parish Council beforehand if you intend on coming along, and everyone is welcome!

Please see the attached document for further information, including a map of the route.
