Buckshaw Village “Here To Help” Group

Assisting Residents In Need

In collaboration with Buckshaw Village Church,

we have formulated a plan as to how we can help

the community during these unprecedented

times.

We feel help comes in two main ways:

Practical help

Pastoral (emotional) help

Because of this, we now have teams in place to

help should anyone on our Village need it.

We would like to say a special thank you to

Buckshaw Village Church and the huge number

of Village volunteers that have offered to help us

with this campaign.

Speak to the “Here To Help” team on:

Our Village really does come together when

people are in need; if you need someone to talk

to or are finding the situation really difficult

please reach out to us.

You can ring or text 07931 100870 and our

friends at BVC can arrange someone to talk

things through or just be there to listen. They will

also liaise with our practical help team so they

can support you as much as possible.

If you live on Buckshaw Village and need anyone

to talk to or any help do make a note of the

Village Helpline Number below. You can also stay

up-to-date with what’s going on by following our

Look out for next

month’s tasty

‘Best of British’

themed recipes!

As you may be unable to leave your home for a period of time, we

thought some tasty recipes using ingredients you may have in your

cupboards would be a great idea!

Tuna & Sundried Tomato Pasta Bake

Ingredients

500g dried rigatoni or any other short pasta, 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes, 300ml double cream,

280g jar sundried tomatoes (drained and quartered), 198g can of

sweetcorn (drained), 3 x 120g cans tuna in spring water (drained), 100g

cheddar (grated) & 50g parmesan (grated).

Method

1. Heat the grill to its highest setting and put a large saucepan of salted

water on to boil. Tip in the pasta and cook for 1 minute less than the pack

suggests.

2. Meanwhile, make the sauce by simmering the tomatoes in a pan with a

little seasoning for about 5 minutes. Pour in the cream, stir and simmer for

another 4-5 minutes.

3. Drain the pasta, reserving a little of the cooking water, and tip back into the saucepan. Pour over the

creamy tomato sauce, the sundried tomatoes, sweetcorn and tuna. Layer into a baking dish scattering

over the grated cheddar between layers. Sprinkle the Parmesan on top and put under the grill for 5

minutes until bubbling and golden.

Chocolate Fudge Crinkle Biscuits

m

Ingredients

60g cocoa powder (sieved), 200g caster sugar, 60ml vegetable oil,

2 large eggs, 180g plain flour, 1 tsp baking powder & 70g icing sugar.

Method

1. Mix the cocoa, caster sugar and oil together. Add the eggs one at a

time, whisking until fully combined.

2. Stir the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt together in a separate bowl, then add to the cocoa

mixture and mix until a soft dough forms. If it feels soft, transfer to the fridge and chill for 1 hr.

3. Heat the oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Tip the icing sugar into a shallow dish. Form a heaped

teaspoon of the dough into a ball, then roll in the icing sugar to coat. Repeat with the remaining dough,

then put, evenly spaced, on a baking tray lined with baking parchment.

4. Bake in the centre of the oven for 10 minutes – they will firm up as they

cool.

5. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool. Will keep for four days

in a biscuit tin.

In this month’s ‘Person of the Month’ column we caught up with Abi Saunders

who is a member of the staff team at Buckshaw Village Church.

Abi is a very popular face on the Village and with Easter upon us, we thought

there was no better person for you to get to know more about her!

So tell us a little bit about you & your family life…

My name is Abi - I’m a mum of

two and wife to Ade. We live in

Leyland but have been at

BVChurch since the very first

service ten years ago.

In my spare time I love watching

films, walking the dog and trying

to catch up on lost sleep.

Historically Easter has meant a holiday for us in

Winchester with my outlaws, sister-in-law and her

family. This year due to the current situation, we’ll

be staying put in Lancashire. Easter will be

understandably different for everyone this year

but I can't wait to see how BVC celebrates

online! What this space!

What does a typical day look like for you?

My work at BVC involves: helping our Minister

James with admin, ensuring church in all it’s

many wonderful forms happens and pastorally

caring for others.

Tuesdays often involve multiple flat whites, staff

meeting and rota planning.

Wednesday's are reserved for prepping

newsletters and Sunday’s PowerPoint.

Then I get to visit people in/

around the community. The other

days of my week are home-based

and involve whatever is needed behind the

scenes to keep things tickin!

What does Easter mean to you and the Church?

Easter to me is about love. Not the squishy kind

of romantic love but love that gives us life,

purpose and validation.

Love that tells us we are so special and

treasured that we are worth the cross and all

that it stands for.

My prayer during these tough weeks and months

ahead is that more people realise just how much

they are loved by Jesus and how much they

need Him in their lives.

What attracts you to supporting our community

magazine?

I support the magazine because it reminds me

of BVChurch in a way. It represents the

community here on Buckshaw and is always

listening and responding to what’s needed!

It’s a fantastic publication that exists to serve the

community and look after others - pure and

simple. Just like BVChurch.

Which three people alive or dead would you

invite to a dinner party?

Other than clothes, you can only pack three

items for a holiday, what would they be?

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

What did you want to be when you were

younger?

What’s your most embarrassing moment?

How would you describe your job to a young

child?

Fly-Tipping Of Waste & What To Do!

Fortunately, we don’t experience this issue

much around Buckshaw Village and some of

us might not even be aware of the term, but

just what is fly-tipping? How does it affect us?

And what do we do if we fall victim to it?

One of the main reasons for the increase in cases

of fly-tipping is the rising costs of licensed waste

disposal. From an environmental point of view,

recent problems don’t necessarily lie in the

practice of using skips for the collection and

disposal of waste, it is actually the effects of

those who don’t use them and instead dump

their waste illegally. Recycling Centres have

popped up all around the country and it’s

amazing just how much waste is actually recycled

as a result of it being disposed of responsibly.

Skip hire companies also do what they can to

recycle material rather than simply deposit

everything into landfill.

Sadly though, many people opt for saving money

and choose to tip waste irresponsibly on the

roadside or at local countryside beauty spots for

example.

What is fly-tipping?

Fly-tipping is generally described as “the illegal

deposit of any waste, whether that be liquid or

solid, onto land that does not have a licence to

accept it, or into watercourses”. This means that

fly-tipped waste can be anything from bags of

general household waste left on the footpaths,

large amounts of construction waste, or even a

single mattress or bedframe left in an apartment

block binstore. If it’s dumped on unlicensed land,

no matter how much of it there is, it’s still

categorised as fly-tipping and it poses a very real

risk to wildlife, watercourses and the

environment overall. Not only does it look

unsightly but it can cause very serious health

problems or pest infestations.

The last scenario is one of the most concerning.

Many people just don’t realise that even if you’ve

paid someone else to remove and dispose of

your waste, if they flytip that waste and it can be

traced back to you (and yes, the local authorities

do carry out investigations!), you will be held

accountable.

Is it illegal?

Yes it is. The maximum fine that can imposed if

you are found guilty of fly-tipping is £50,000

and/or a five-year prison sentence. The

maximum fine is of course reserved for major

incidents, and in recent years the majority of

fines issued were below £500. Having said that,

the powers afforded to local authorities by the

Government to tackle this problem have

increased in recent years and with that, so have

18 | Issue Number 56


All images have kindly been supplied by RMG Buckshaw

the Fixed Penalty Notices that can be issued to

flytippers.

How to prevent being a victim of fly-tipping.

It is difficult to safeguard against the

consequences of someone else dumping waste,

without erecting fences and gates around your

property and isolating yourself from the

community.

As upsetting and frustrating as it may seem, if

waste has been fly-tipped on your land, it is your

responsibility to see that it is cleared and

disposed of legally. If you report the matter to

the local authority, they might be able to help or

offer guidance on having the waste removed.

If you are going to pay someone to collect,

transport and dispose of waste you really should

insist on checking that they have a licence to

carry waste. Likewise, if you are going to pay

someone to dispose of your waste, check with

them that they are taking it to a licensed facility.

As much as possible, try to utilise a reputable

skip hire company to provide an option for waste

removal rather than paying an unknown or

unlicensed waste carrier.

What to do if you are a victim of fly-tipping.

For small incidents of fly-tipping within

apartment block binstores, it would be reported

to the relevant management company of that

location.

On Buckshaw Village, fly-tipping on certain areas

of management land would be reported to RMG

who in some cases would then liaise with the

relevant authorities. RMG can be contacted on

0345 002 4444.

For smaller to moderate quantities of waste, flytipping

should be reported to the local authority.

They will visit the scene and investigate the

matter. They may want to speak with you and ask

if you have any information as to who could have

done it, when it occurred, if you noticed any

suspicious vehicles or people, etc. Chorley

Council can be contacted on 01257 515151.

South Ribble Borough Council can be contacted

on 01772 421491.

For larger quantities or industrial scale deposits

of waste, it would be necessary to report the

matter to the Environment Agency who can be

contacted on 08708 506506. The Agency is also

able to check that any contractor employed to

remove waste is a registered waste carrier.

Friends of Buckshaw Village Community Magazine

It is with regret that both the Unity Place Community Centre &

Buckshaw Village Sports Pitches have been closed from

Monday 23 rd March 2020 until at least 6 th April 2020 but this is

likely to be extended as this issue develops.

Due to the ongoing threat of COVID -19 (Coronavirus) we have

deemed it unsafe to keep these open as both community

facilities are high-risk locations to spread the virus throughout

our village and beyond.

We are sure everyone will appreciate the current circumstances

are very serious; we had to take into account the health of our

staff and also that of those entering the facilities when taking this

decision.

If any current hirers who paid in advance would like a refund of

any payments made, please contact the Bookings Team

at: info@buckshawleisure.co.uk quoting your booking reference,

name of the online account, date & time of the session and also

the amount that was paid. This would be really helpful.

Please remain safe within these difficult times. We are looking

forward to welcoming you back to the facilities as soon as

possible.

Thank you for your understanding from all of us at

Some more FAQ’s regularly asked by residents to RMG

As the newly appointed Property Manager I

feel it would be useful to publicise some of

the frequently asked questions which are

raised to RMG by residents. Also, some

updates on some on-going matters which

are raised throughout the year.

There is a light out; how do I find out if it is

RMG’s?

If the lights are on one of the pathways

“Green Corridors”, it is likely that it is one we

manage. The lighting on the roads is not likely

to be ours apart from in a few select areas.

The best thing I would advise residents do

would be to contact us with images via

Twitter and we will advise. We are looking to

asset label all the assets under RMG’s

management within the next 12 months.

RMG are holding onto or making money in

interest from residents money

This is not correct. Service charge monies are

held in trust and in line with section 42 of the

Landlord and Tenant Act 1987. In summary

this means that no benefit can be gained by

RMG from the money being held under our

control.

When is the Property Manager at the office so

I can raise a problem?

I am on the development working from the

office 90% of the time, however if I am not in

the office I may be working from our regional

office, in a meeting with other residents or on

a site visit. If you would like to set up a

meeting with me, please contact our

customer services team and we can arrange

a time and date.

I can’t afford to pay my service charge!

Contact our customer services team as soon

as you receive the invoice and we can set

up a payment plan to suit. All service

charges must be paid in full before the end

of the financial year. We invoice the service

charges in line with the Lease / TP1

Document for your property.

Why do I pay a service charge when the

area near me is not being maintained?

There are a number of areas across

Buckshaw Village which are not RMG’s

responsibility. This could be for many different

reasons; they could be under the ownership

of another resident or still with the developer

until adoption. We have maps available

should any residents want

clarification on areas

under our

management.

Thanks,

distancing, self-isolation and the closure of

businesses that we take for granted will be

open whenever we need them.

The situation is changing on a daily basis, but

the key points remain unchanged

● Regularly wash your hands for at least 20

seconds;

● Keep those over-70 and those with

underlying health issues safe by keeping

your distance;

● Keep meeting up with family and friends to

a minimum and only if it’s essential;

● Don’t panic buy; if we all just buy what we

need there is more than enough for

everyone.

If you are struggling at all, need help with

shopping etc or you just

need someone to talk to,

the Buckshaw Village

‘Here To Help Group’ is

here for you.

Just message the Friends of

Buckshaw Village or Buckshaw Village Church

Facebook pages, or ring/text 07931 100 870

as detailed on pages 4 & 14.

Every household on the village should have

received a card with these details on it, and

there are many volunteers across the village

waiting to help, so please don’t be afraid or

embarrassed to ask.

Take care and stay safe Buckshaw. We are a

wonderful community and we will get

through this together, by supporting each

other and doing what we do best; being

Buckshaw!

Indoor Easter Egg Hunt - Fun For The Kids

If you’re self isolating at the moment, this

doesn’t mean that Easter has to be cancelled!

If you and the family would still like to have

some fun, then you can create an Indoor Easter

Egg Hunt.

Setting up the Easter Egg Hunt is quite

straightforward; you just need to make sure you

buy your chocolate treats in advance or if you

can’t leave the house, ask someone else to

kindly pick these up for you.

You will need:

● Mini Chocolate Eggs

● Chocolate Easter Bunnies

● Small Pocket Money Toys

● Sweets

Before you hide your eggs, write or type up

some Easter Egg Hunt clues that point the

children in the right direction for finding the

eggs.

An example of this would be:

‘Where can they be? They can’t be far, why

don’t you check inside the _____’

The answer could be something like: ‘Vase’

Make use of the whole house, using different

rooms and pieces of furniture to hide the treats

behind.

Here are some suggestions of places you could

hide them:

● Behind the sofa

● Behind a vase or ornament

● Inside a coat pocket

● Inside a pillow case

● On a bookshelf

● Inside some shoes

● In a cupboard

● Under a bed

● In the Washing Machine or Dryer

Depending on your competitiveness, you could

make it so that everyone wins a big Easter Egg

at the end or there is just one grand prize for

one winner!
