The attached document was first issued when the Community Boards were set up by Buckinghamshire Council last June, as some background info that could help shape the activity of the Health and Wellbeing subgroup. That subgroup is planning a ‘Fun, Food and Fitness Fair’ and working with groups like Active Bucks.
The parish council is working to address some of the issues raised via investment in play equipment, the skate park and multi-use ball games court to encourage freely available fitness & activity; we support the foodbank for those struggling with food deprivation; we host Active Bucks events (when Covid restrictions permit); will be setting up activities for the new community space at the pavilion; provide support for local football, cricket & netball; provide allotments to encourage self provision & active gardening and provide youth services (when Covid restrictions permit).
The community board subgroup still has funds available for relevant local projects. Residents are welcome to attend the Community Board meetings, so if there are other local initiatives that fall within the Health & Wellbeing remit, you are welcome to either attend the sub-group meetings in person or provide your feedback to the parish council so that we can take forward ideas on your behalf.
If you would be interested in any of the initiatives listed, or have other ideas, we would love to hear from you so do get in touch (email: firstname.lastname@example.org, tel: 01296 767261)
