Friday 19 July, 12.30 to 6pm Ashbrook Playing Field, HP22 6AD

01296 624270

Wendover Youth Centre has listened to the young people of Wendover so by popular demand, this year’s Youth Festival will be open from 12.30pm and close at 6pm on Friday 19 July on Ashbrook Playing Field. The longer time means it will be bigger and better, for example the range of activities includes Land Zorbs as featured in 2017, and this year, Body Zorbs, too. Entry costs £5 then no extra charge for activities. Tickets are available from the Youth Centre during any of our sessions or from JUST (St Mary’s shop) on the High Street. See advert on page 5 and article on page 15 for more information.

Halton Development www.hdcic.co.uk

The recent consultation held by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) invited the local communities to comment on their plans. We urge anyone who has not seen the plans and made a comment to do so. The plans can be seen on www.rafhaltonconsultation.co.uk. Once complete, the Halton Development CIC (HDCIC) response will be published on our website. Meanwhile, we remain clear that the DIO has a job to do and this is a job it carries out across many sites across the country. The DIO is tasked with disposing of the site whilst being able to demonstrate that the community has been consulted through events, which provide top level, early plans so that planning permission is granted by AVDC. They will, understandably, deliver safe plans that meet housing targets and some community requirements such as some green spaces and community facilities. Such plans are rarely bold or inspirational. Equally, the final development, which will take years to complete, will not match the original plans we have seen to date, and we must be realistic about this. Our aim remains constant: To be an influencing active partner. We believe that, through our community development approach, the eventual funding receipts for the DIO and the Exchequer will be higher, and the wider benefits will far exceed their current aspirations. Opportunities pre closure As the full closure has now been delayed until 2025, we are focused on projects that could be started much sooner. Many facilities are underutilised or not used at all. Allowing the site to deteriorate is in no one’s interests. There are projects that can be started far sooner to the benefit of all:

MasterClass 11+ Learning for Results

Project Pavilion

A hub to connect us through rest and play The RAF Nuffield Pavilion is a tremendous asset that could be better used by both the RAF and local groups, if it was made accessible to all, offered meeting and event rooms and able to offer catering facilities. This could also provide a village green and facilities for Halton Village, helping with its sense of place. Such an approach is working well at Aston Clinton, where ‘Your Café in the Park’ is run for and supported by the wider community and the football club. Project Cyclepath Environmentally friendly connections Cycling is one of the fastest growing and most popular participation sports/activity. It suits all ages, genders and abilities. Our proposal is to build a local cycling network that links the communities, other sports and recreational facilities and links to transport hubs such as Wendover Station, encouraging students, commuters, local workers, visitors, families and enthusiasts to travel by bike. Project Sport for All Connecting all ages, abilities and genders in health The proposal is to develop these facilities for the benefit of the local community, for participation sport, local teams and organisations. Development of any section of this sport real estate has tremendous benefit. These are vital green spaces promoting numerous health and mental well-being

11+ COURSES

Highly successful, established course offering specialised tuition for the Bucks 11+ exams Outstanding teaching produces high scores and consistently high pass rate Qualified teaching staff with over 20 years’ experience of the 11+ age group

advantages; and are currently actively used by local sports and social societies across Halton, Weston Turville, Wendover, Aston Clinton and beyond. These plans embrace disability sports with exciting prospects for tie-ins with Stoke Mandeville. This proposal builds on Halton’s current uniqueness as a hub of sporting and physical well-being activity for the entire community and, potentially, for the RAF. Project Workshop Creating employment through enterprise and creativity The ambition of the HDCIC is to bring the workshops back into productive use. We recognise that, under the current DIO plans, the workshops will be demolished for housing. We believe, however, there is still an opportunity to utilise them in the meantime, and this opportunity could include the hangars. Project Hatch Demonstrating how we can create new forms of housing to meet tomorrow’s needs The HDCIC still retains a firm interest in developing their community-based housing offer and will be applying to Homes England’s Community Fund for support in testing its feasibility and working with the Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust to make it affordable. These proposals will be put forward to the DIO, RAF and AVDC by us. We believe they are positive and realistic, keeping the site alive and helping point the way towards the Halton of the future. To support the HDCIC, please sign up or get in touch if you are particularly interested in, or have experience of, any of the ‘early use’ proposals mentioned here. www.hdcic.co.uk

WCEJS It has been a very busy time at Wendover CE Junior School (WCEJS) including improving our curriculum so that children are challenged and benefit from a wide range of enrichment activities. Educational visits include a Y6 experience at RAF Halton, Y5 visits to Holdenby House and the Ashmolean Museum, Y4 visit to the River and Rowing Museum, Y3 visits to Whipsnade Zoo and Wendover Library and a visit from our local beekeeping association. Y6 have even forged a link with a school in Spain and exchanged letters with their peers. Our extended learning competitions have been well received this year with children and families embracing opportunities to complete exciting learning opportunities outside of school – contributions to the recent STEM competition are being exhibited in school, including a large cardboard radio controlled aircraft that actually flies. Children have been very busy with their extracurricular activities too. We have taken part in numerous sporting competitions with other local schools. Gardening club has been developing our new planting area and our choir performed brilliantly at the Echoes 8 event at the Royal

Albert Hall. Pupil leaders have also been very busy, particularly our Junior Road Safety Officers who have organised a number of whole school events designed to keep children safe and active. The children’s school newspaper, Red Jumpers, has gone from strength to strength and is very popular. Finally, we found time to take part in an attempt to break the skipping world record contributing 383,271 skips! Our strong work in the local community has continued and the children have organised many fundraising events for local, national and international charities. Year 3 recently completed Dementia Friends training, meaning that we are truly a Dementia Friendly school, and plan to attend as appropriate the Monday Club Café organised by Wendover Dementia Support. We would love to hear from you if you have a special interest or expertise that you would like to share with our children or if you can give just a little time as a volunteer. We would also love to hear from anyone in the community who would be interested in joining our Governing Body, school office: admin@wendoverjunior.co.uk.

Fighting Plastic On the evening of Wednesday 29 May a modest number of Wendover residents gathered in St Anne’s Hall to hear a talk by the Waste Promotions Officer for Bucks CC, Andrew Jenkins. Not the most exciting event of the year you might think but think again! Not only was Andrew a very knowledgable and articulate young man but a real expert in the field of recycling and waste disposal who delivered a totally engaging 45 minute talk. We were taken through what happens to our waste once it has been collected by the AVDC - a real eye-opener. I think most of us imagine that it is cursorily sorted at the dump and then burnt or buried. Not so. We were shown the massive investment that our county has made in recent years and the meticulous sorting of rubbish by specially designed equipment the result of which is immaculately sorted waste which can then be sold on for recycling. There is real value in what we recycle and we should do as much as we can and rather than regarding all plastic as BAD we should appreciate that our waste plastic properly recycled is a valuable and profitable material. After the talk we were invited to ask questions and discuss our concerns. This was extremely helpful and put right a lot of misconceptions.

Sharing some Tapas News

It is now four years since Tres Corazones opened in Wendover and brought a taste of Spain to the people of Buckinghamshire’s Best Kept Town. Owner and founder Katrina, along with her daughters Katie and Lena, are the ‘three hearts’ behind the restaurant and have done everything they can to share their passion for great food and service with their customers over the years. Many of you will have made wonderful memories over patatas bravas, a tortilla, croquetas and a bottle of Rioja or an Estrella - especially when the Wendover weather has done its best to imitate that of Madrid.

Katrina and Alba will work together on a handover in July, with Katrina very much looking forward to her first meal as a customer of the restaurant on Thursday 1 August, saying to Wendover News: “It’s been so exciting and rewarding to build the business, but I can’t wait to sit down and enjoy a meal without having to worry about anything other than what bottle of wine to choose!”

Alba looks forward to building on all that Katrina, Katie and Lena have achieved. For missing out on life because of their hearing?Alba, “Tapas is all about sharing: your food, With Katie and Lena moving on to pursue your wine, your stories, and your love for new careers and travel adventures, Katrina friends and family – I hope that everyone has decided to pass control of the restaurant will enjoy the restaurant just as much in to her Spanish friend and fellow Wendover the future as they have in the past.” So Tres resident, Alba Vasquez, who brings many Corazones is here to stay, and to provide a years of restaurant experience - most warm welcome to everyone who cares to recently from Beast in London. share in a little taste of Spain."

HS2 I recently attended a meeting which was organised by Great Missenden and The Lee PCs, with Sir Mark Worthington who is HS2’s construction commissioner, and Deborah Fazan the residents' commissioner. The commissioners listened attentively to our comprehensive list of complaints and took copious notes. Having met them I do believe that both commissioners will act as honest brokers when dealing with our complaints, but they are without real powers. The residents' commissioner who deals with compensation schemes for residents, is a part time role. I intend to ask them if they’d be available for a public meeting in Wendover where you can meet them.

Lindengate Lindengate thanks Wendover!!

Lindengate mental health charity wishes to thank residents and businesses of Wendover for their continuing assistance and marvellous support for their annual fair which raised a whopping £7000! The annual event, which this year was opened by Russell Grant, showcased the beautiful site which enhances mental wellbeing. Russell shared with us how important the role of Lindengate’s Memory Pathways programme is for those living with Dementia and we were delighted to share with him that it would be expanding to three mornings a month from September. To attend please contact frankie.mitchell@ lindengate.org.uk. Many of the Gardeners (service users) who attend Lindengate were in attendance at the fair. It was wonderful to receive their feedback. We heard of one young man with mental health issues who was working on his recovery and aiming to return to

employment. His mother told us that he now has a part time job in a garden centre. She wanted to thank us for all the support he has had at Lindengate when he was in a difficult place and struggling with his mental health. She believes that Lindengate played an important part in his recovery, particularly the way he was allowed to “...just 'be' here, with no questions asked, at a time when his confidence and energy levels were very low….it gave him the space and time to think and to build his confidence back up again”. If anyone wishes to attend, volunteer or support Lindengate please contact info@ lindengate.org.uk. Lionel Abel-Smith Trust of Wendover has been most generous in supporting our ongoing work. It's only with the support of Wendover residents that this work can continue. Thank you! Jan Webster

Eiffage Kier on behalf of HS2 website for information: hs2inbucksandoxfordshire.commonplace.is/ In September 2018 Eiffage Kier shared the emerging design and delivery proposal for the Wendover Dean viaduct located to the south of Wendover between Rocky Lane and Leather Lane. During these engagement events, we listened to the concerns regarding the design of this structure and formulated a report which has been shared with Wendover, Great Missenden and The Lee Parish Councils. A copy of it can be found on the HS2 commonplace website (see above, look for ‘Wendover Viaducts and Green Tunnel Designs and Information September 2018’). Eiffage Kier has been updating the design in preparation for the submission for planning approval to AVDC. We are now in a position to share the developed design for this structure and surroundings, which incorporates changes relating to the landscaping and noise mitigation. Representatives from Eiffage Kier will be available in Wendover Library on Thursday

Working with your Parish Council, we will be arranging further engagement activities for the Small Dean Viaduct and the Green Tunnel and our general approach to HS2 construction activities. Notification for these will be published in Wendover News and social media platforms and the HS2 commonplace website in the coming months.

Joe`s grandson, Tim Cooper - Managing Director of DAYLA, was delighted to have been recognised once again for their excellence in sales and distribution and their high levels of service which are a testament to the hard-working team of staff that are always prepared to go that extra mile.

It is hard to believe that half of the year has gone already. At the end of May a large number of members were treated to a proper cream tea. When I say proper I mean PROPER, with dainty sandwiches, scones with lashings of clotted cream and lovely cakes. I can honestly say it matched anything I have had in the poshest of hotels. It was no surprise that some members had difficulty bending down to deliver their woods for several days. Sometimes it can be difficult to cope with the challenges that life throws at us so talking to a counsellor may be helpful. Based near Wendover, I offer a warm, friendly and confidential space for you to talk through any problems you may be facing such as anxiety, stress, sadness, low self-esteem, anger and relationship difficulties.

Our open evenings finished at the end of May having had a good response. More than a dozen people handed in completed membership forms. Many of the forms were from younger people which is heartening.

U10 and U11 players on Sunday July 7 at its Ellesborough Road ground. Teams from all over south Bucks will be participating, including an all-girls team from Aylesbury High School. The U10 event commences at 9am, with the U11 competition taking place in the afternoon. There will be a bar and BBQ operating all day so please do come along and see junior cricket in action and support your local cricket team.

Wendover Cricket Club’s league teams have continued their good start to the season. The 1st XI had a nail-biting win at Waddesdon by a single run but then had a 3 run defeat to Haddenham despite George Robinson’s 109. More runs for George (87) on a bad pitch at Challoners and 3 wickets too, plus Jonathan Seabrook’s 4-20 brought victory by 115 runs. A 9-wicket win v Lacey Green with Jonathan and Jon Green both taking 5 wickets. The 2nd XI have extended their winning run to an unprecedented 6 out of 6. The U15s have reached the Bucks Cup semi-final.

Katie Malliff - Backing the Best Wendover squash star Katie Malliff is making great strides in continental competition – but it’s gradual progress in the classroom that’s pleasing her most. The teenager came within a whisker of gold at the Under–19 European Championships in the Czech Republic, storming to the final only to lose out to Poland’s Karina Tyma. Now the Tring School pupil’s focus turns to GCSE exams over the summer and she feels excellence in her sport is helping conquering academic anxiety. “I’m very determined and I just want to be the best I can be, to play at the best level I can,” said the 15-year-old. “The main challenge I’ll have to overcome is the balance with school. I have my GCSEs so trying to balance that is tough, it stops me from competing at times. “There’s not much in the sport that’s challenging, it’s just getting everything around it right. “I think I’ve got it sorted, it’s just trying to stick to a plan of what I want and set reasonable goals. “I’m not very good in the classroom, but when you push on in sport it gives you confidence academically.

“Being determined at squash makes you want to stick at it, makes you focused and it helps you concentrate on your studies when you’re rubbish at school!”

“It was a really great day in Nottingham. It’s amazing to be a part of something that gives young adults the chance to shine,” said the triple short track speed skating world champion.

Her cause is also being helped by SportsAid and the Backing The Best programme, which offers critical financial help to talented young athletes who would otherwise face difficulties progressing through their sport’s system. Backed by £5.5 million of National Lottery funding, Backing The Best presents annual awards of £5,000 per athlete to help with essential costs such as travel, accommodation, kit, nutrition and medical bills. The Buckinghamshire athlete was one of dozens of SportsAid athletes who attended workshops at Nottingham Racecourse in April, offering media training, nutrition advice, performance lifestyle guidance and support for parents. The youngsters from all over the country were joined by Winter Olympian Elise Christie, who sang the praises of the programme.

“I think that’s what is important about SportsAid – they don’t just give money, they help you develop skills. “If I could have gone back and learnt that stuff before what happened to me, then I’d have been so much better prepared. “I’ve come to SportsAid events four times and I always learn something new each time. "SportsAid is a special charity because there are a lot of people who will support successful athletes, but SportsAid search for talent who can’t make it on their own.” Backing The Best is helping talented young athletes facing the greatest financial pressure to pursue their sporting ambitions. The programme, managed by SportsAid for Sport England, is supported by National Lottery funding. Visit www.sportengland. org/our–work/talent/backing–the–best/ to find out more.

Local Faces: John Colet School tweeted on Monday 20 May: Our new Head Student Team are ready to start their new roles. They had been elected the previous Friday and this photo was taken at their first meeting with Head Teacher Patrick Harty. This meeting will be a weekly event to ensure good communication between the staff and students at the school.

attached to each year 7 tutor group to be on hand to explain how things work in the school. She’s keen to encourage the girls to take their full part in school life. She wrote to every female MP in the country for support but, disappointingly, not one MP’s office even acknowledged her email. Devante Tengende Deputy Head Boy studying Finance IT Mathematics Planning to become IT/entrepreneur

The new Team was able to have a handover from their predecessors so that good work could continue and pitfalls be avoided. This includes an opportunity to interact with the full governing body at the end of their term in office, increasing the opportunity for their ideas to be implemented. In July they will be engaging with both The Chiltern Society and Lindengate for advice on the design and planting for the School Garden. A lot of work was done during the current academic year to start this project, especially the heavy lifting of clearing the site, mostly in snowy conditions. This is preparation for the start of the new academic year in the autumn when they plan to engage with the new Year 7, thus enabling sixth formers to be active in the

Sam wishes to make strong links between sixth formers in nearby schools. All members of the Team have friends in Misbourne, Mandeville, Tring and the Grammar Schools and it would be great to organise events with them including speakers and challenges. This should stand them all in good stead when they leave school. Abie wants to develop the mentoring system with a sixth form boy and girl

A sixth form colleague, Tom Withers, has already started a project concerning recycling materials used in school and the Team hopes this can be recognised as another example of Wendover Fighting Plastic. Devante has a business background having founded his own online clothing business in October 2018. He believes in developing the talents of others, not just himself, so he will support this project and public relations.

On Tuesday afternoons while staff have continuing professional development, the sixth form enrichment programme will include life skills such as a book club, cooking, first aid, changing a tyre. The Team is keen for more interaction with the local community in Wendover to discover what young people can do to help out.

Matters Arising Wendover Parish Council Page

View from the Chair

WPC is always looking at possible improvements to the look of Wendover, the facilities we offer and sustainability. One project that we’re researching at the moment seems to tick all three of these boxes. We want to refurbish the area next to the clocktower, where the water fountain once was. As an area it could look great and provide a source of potable water for those with their own water bottles, which could reduce the plastic usage in the Parish. Wherever I mention this idea I get really positive comments. So, let’s hope we can get this one done. By now the Best Kept Village judges have run the rule over Wendover again. Fingers crossed for another successful outcome. I’d like to thank all our staff and councillors who have worked hard to make Wendover look its best. Most of all I’d like to thank the business owners, the individuals and the organisations who have helped. Particularly the Wendover WI who have taken on the planting outside Istanbul. Thanks.
