Friends of Burnham Library Presents – MRS OSCAR WILDE

Friends of Burnham Library Presents – Mrs Oscar Wilde

22nd September 2017 – Buffet and Wine from 7pm
Burnham Library, Windsor Lane, SL1 7HR
Tickets £12 (£10 for Friends of Burnham Library)

Constance Lloyd is rarely remembered in literary history. A feminist, a writer and a mother, she is rather remembered as the wife of one of the most infamous Victorians – Oscar Wilde.
From her childhood days suffering at the hands of her abusive mother to blossoming into a young woman of society, Constance’s story is intriguing and varied. She had her own income, she brought up her two small children almost single-handedly and was one of the most well-known faces and names among the celebrities of London in the late 1800s.

Mrs. Oscar Wilde is a presentation of her life, told using excerpts of accounts in her own hand in letters to those she knew and loved, revealing a wit that rivalled Oscar’s himself, a sense of humour dry and winning and a sense of self that will have every audience member rooting for the tragic heroine from beginning to end.

Lexi Wolfe is an award winning actor, writer and director who has appeared on Stage, Television and even in “Star Wars”!

She wrote her one woman play “Mrs Oscar Wilde” and has produced it at many theatre festivals around the country, receiving very positive reviews (See http://buxton.fringeguru.com/reviews/buxton-2016/mrs-oscar-wilde)

“Intimate and intelligent, compelling and compassionate, Lexi Wolfe’s lyrical homage to a champion of women’s causes, artist and political activist, she justly revises and reinstates Constance Lloyd’s identity as much more than just the stigmatised victim of circumstances: being remembered as just Mrs. Oscar Wilde is not enough.” (John Kennedy – The Hubs Review – July 2017)

She was awarded the Gold award as Best Actress in the International Independent Film Awards 2016

Pupils celebrate Community Card scheme win with trip to LEGOLAND® Windsor

Forty-two excited Year 6 primary school pupils headed off for a day of fun at the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort on Friday 30 June – their reward for winning a Community Card scheme, which aims to help prepare youngsters for their autumn transition to secondary school.

The scheme is run each year by the joint Community Safety team for both South Bucks and Chiltern district councils with partners, Thames Valley Police. This year 29 schools took part in the scheme which started in April and ended on 19 June.

Pupils collect up to 24 different stickers by completing various challenges and tasks, or by attending an event. Topics cover money management, cyber safety, personal and road safety, healthy living, environmental issues, sport and wellbeing. Winners are the classes whose pupils collect the highest average number of stickers.

Top of the classes this year were Chalfont Valley E-ACT Primary Academy, Little Chalfont and St Peter’s Church of England Primary School, Burnham.

And runners up were:
Y6 Brushwood Junior School, Chesham, who win a trip to The Climb at Chiltern Pools, Amersham
Y6 Farnham Common Junior School, winning family swim passes to Chiltern Pools.

Joining the lucky winning schoolchildren on their day trip were local PCSOs Hannah White and Jen Shraga from Chiltern and Angela O’Connell and Paul Austin from South Bucks.

Cllr Nigel Shepherd, Chairman of Chiltern District Council dropped by as pupils from Chalfont Valley set off for their day out to wish them well.

Cllr Kelly said: “This scheme has been running for many years with great success. It’s quite demanding and winning is a real achievement. These youngsters have well and truly earned a day out, which couldn’t happen without the fantastic support, once again, from LEGOLAND® Windsor.”

Cllr Shepherd said: “I applaud the effort and commitment shown by all pupils from the 29 schools which participated in the scheme. We try to make this a really fun way to learn serious life lessons – it seems to be a formula that works very well.”

Here’s what the pupils has to say about the Community Card scheme:

Chalfont Valley E-ACT Primary Academy 

From Community Cards I have learnt….
‘To never take loans from a loan shark or I would be in serious debt. When the police came in they made me learn the importance of road safety and severity of knife crime. Intergenerational was when we discussed dementia and I learnt how to help people with it.’

From Community Cards I have ….

‘Discovered a lot of new things. I learnt about fires, like how a fire could start. Another thing that I found out was what loan sharks did and if I hadn’t learnt it now, I might have never known and later made that mistake! I am glad I participated in Community Cards because I have learnt new, exciting things.’

St Peter’s C of E Primary School
From Community Cards I have learnt….

‘Many key skills and how to be a better person/citizen.  It has given me a clear insight to the world outside and has prepared me for it.  For example I have learnt how to be safe on the internet, what to do in a fire, encouraging me to eat healthier and have a better understanding of the value of money than I did before. The Community Card Scheme has taught me so much and has equipped me for life.’

From Community Cards I have ….

‘gained a lot of knowledge on how to keep safe in the real and online world which I know will really benefit me in the future!

I have also learnt a lot more about managing my money and being a better citizen! So overall I have learnt so much from the Community Card Scheme.’
