News: “Bring Back the<br />

Blossom” campaign<br />

<strong>Beaconsfield</strong> used to be famous for its cherry<br />

trees supplying London, we believe from<br />

the 19th Century. We are reminded of this<br />

every time we walk, cycle or drive down<br />

Cherry Tree Road.<br />

As part of the <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Society’s efforts<br />

in greening our streets,over the last few<br />

years we have offered discounted cherry<br />

blossom trees for residents to plant in their<br />

front gardens. More than 100 trees have<br />

been planted already!<br />

In November<br />

last year<br />

we offered<br />

discounted<br />

specimen<br />

cherry blossom<br />

trees to<br />

members <strong>and</strong><br />

non-members.<br />

The trees are<br />

Prunus “Sunset<br />

Boulevard”.<br />

They are<br />

perfect for<br />

gardens as<br />

the trees are<br />

quite compact,<br />

An established cherry blossom tree in<br />

<strong>Beaconsfield</strong> New Town.<br />

with a tidy shaped crown. In spring, the trees<br />

produce blossoms <strong>and</strong> have coppery foliage<br />

which turns green in summer turning yellow in<br />

autumn<br />

Michael Lischer <strong>and</strong> Kari Dorme of The <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Society<br />

We were also delighted to donate a cherry<br />

tree each to Butlers Court, Holtspur <strong>and</strong> St<br />

Marys & All Saints schools in <strong>Beaconsfield</strong>. We<br />

sincerely hope everybody enjoys their new<br />

trees!<br />

We were also delighted to sponsor a bench to<br />

support the wonderful new playground<br />

provided by <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Town Council at<br />

Malthouse Square in <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Old Town.<br />

The bench has a plaque bearing a lovely quote<br />

from Charlie Mackesy.<br />

In January <strong>and</strong> February, we were able<br />

to deliver 23 trees to residents across<br />

<strong>Beaconsfield</strong> <strong>and</strong> neighbouring villages.<br />

If you are interested in being part of the Love <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> team or would like to<br />

volunteer for future events please write to us at TheBecSoc@gmail.com <strong>and</strong> come<br />

Reflexology<br />

Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive<br />

complementary therapy that encourages<br />

the body to balance <strong>and</strong> heal itself.<br />

It involves applying finger or thumb pressure to<br />

specific reflex points on the h<strong>and</strong>s <strong>and</strong> feet. These<br />

reflexes mirror the organs <strong>and</strong> structures of the body<br />

<strong>and</strong> are linked to those organs by energy channels,<br />

zones or meridians. When illness occurs in the body,<br />

the corresponding energy channels can become<br />

blocked. Reflexology is then applied to release<br />

these blockages, allowing the energy to flow freely<br />

again <strong>and</strong> therefore restoring the body’s natural<br />

balance.<br />

Reflexology is also described as a holistic therapy<br />

<strong>and</strong> the term ‘holistic’ is derived from the Greek<br />

word ‘holos’ which means ‘whole’. The idea is that<br />

health is the result of harmony between the body,<br />

mind <strong>and</strong> spirit. Stresses of any kind, physical,<br />

psychological, social or environmental can upset the<br />

balance in our body. Reflexology helps to restore<br />

balance.<br />

immune system, improving circulation <strong>and</strong><br />

stimulating the flow of energy through the body.<br />

This calms the nervous system <strong>and</strong> helps relieve<br />

stress <strong>and</strong> tension.<br />

Having reflexology treatments can help with various<br />

conditions such as: anxiety, stress <strong>and</strong> tension,<br />

headaches <strong>and</strong> migraines, digestive disorders,<br />

dizziness <strong>and</strong> many more.<br />

internal balance within the body, boosting the<br />

Volunteers needed for<br />

new Phoenix Café at<br />

the Epilepsy Society<br />

Could you spare a few hours each week to<br />

volunteer at the Epilepsy Society’s newly<br />

re-opened Phoenix Café? The café has<br />

just opened its doors again to customers,<br />

following a grant from the National Lottery.<br />

And its new name pays tribute to the charity’s<br />

popular sports club - the Phoenix team.<br />

Now the café is looking for a team of volunteers to<br />

help take orders, serve refreshments <strong>and</strong> provide<br />

a warm welcome for customers, including many<br />

of the residents who live at the Epilepsy Society in<br />

Chalfont St Peter.<br />

Kate Lamb is the new manager of the Phoenix Café.<br />

“I am looking for friendly, outgoing volunteers who,<br />

as well as ensuring that the café runs smoothly,<br />

would enjoy chatting to residents, many of whom<br />

have epilepsy <strong>and</strong> learning disabilities,” she said.<br />

“The café is a really important part of their lives,<br />

enabling them to meet friends <strong>and</strong> socialise. It is<br />

Web: www.piedssurterre.co.uk<br />

Email: piedssurterre@icloud.com<br />

also a great place<br />

for staff to come<br />

<strong>and</strong> escape the office<br />

or take a break from<br />

their computers <strong>and</strong> enjoy freshly made coffee<br />

<strong>and</strong> food.” In accordance with guidelines, the<br />

café looks forward to welcoming members of<br />

the public.<br />

A Word from<br />

Waitrose in<br />

<strong>Beaconsfield</strong><br />

January <strong>and</strong> February have raced by so<br />

we thought we would update everyone<br />

with some new initiatives we have at<br />

Waitrose <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> for <strong>2022</strong>:<br />

Sushi Daily<br />

Good news for Sushi lovers! From 10 January<br />

Waitrose Sushi Daily counters are providing a Click<br />

<strong>and</strong> Collect service. Customers can order <strong>and</strong> pay<br />

online on the Sushi Daily website <strong>and</strong> collect from<br />

the Sushi Daily counter in store.<br />

natural br<strong>and</strong> fit between Waitrose <strong>and</strong> Mindful<br />

Chef through their commitment to healthy food <strong>and</strong><br />

sourcing st<strong>and</strong>ards.<br />

Deliveroo<br />

From the beginning of <strong>March</strong> Waitrose <strong>Beaconsfield</strong><br />

will be partnering Deliveroo to offer customers the<br />

convenience of selecting Waitrose products <strong>and</strong><br />

paying via the Deliveroo app. Once an order has<br />

been placed (from a choice of over 900 products),<br />

the groceries will be delivered within 30 minutes -<br />

very useful for top up shops <strong>and</strong> last minute dinner<br />

solutions!<br />

All these initiatives are being implemented to offer<br />

our customers more convenience <strong>and</strong> efficiency in<br />

their busy lives. We hope you will find them useful.<br />

InPost Collection lockers<br />

Coming soon, the locker solution provider, InPost, will<br />

install a number of lockers outside our store. InPost<br />

works with br<strong>and</strong>s including Zara, Boohoo <strong>and</strong> JD<br />

Sports, giving customers the convenience of the<br />

option of collecting (or returning) their order from a<br />

locker on a 24/7 basis.<br />

Waitrose <strong>and</strong> Mindful Chef<br />

Waitrose <strong>and</strong> Mindful Chef have teamed up to trial<br />

a co-br<strong>and</strong>ed direct-to-customer recipe box offer,<br />

accessed via waitrose.mindfulchef.com. Customers<br />

choosing to order the co-br<strong>and</strong>ed box will receive<br />

a £10 discount off their first two boxes. There is a<br />

Give a Little Love campaign<br />

Finally, an update on our Give A Little Love<br />

Ambulance Service<br />

on your doorstep<br />

The Inter-County Ambulance Service is the<br />

longest running private ambulance service in<br />

the UK.<br />

Based in Gravel Hill, Chalfont St Peter, they<br />

provide ambulance cover across the UK <strong>and</strong><br />

Europe working closely with NHS <strong>and</strong> private<br />

hospitals. A 24/7 family-run service can transfer<br />

someone unable to travel in a car (on either a<br />

stretcher or wheelchair) with extra space for<br />

family members. Ambulances are fully equipped<br />

to cater for any need, whether it be an admission<br />

an appointment. Their crews are able to wait with<br />

patients during the appointment <strong>and</strong> return once<br />

finished, or leave the patient <strong>and</strong> return to pick<br />

them up later if necessary. They work as an<br />

over-flow for the over-burdened NHS ambulances,<br />

so if you are waiting for an ambulance, either at<br />

home or at hospital to be discharged, you can<br />

call Inter-County privately to assist. All ambulances<br />

are emergency blue light capable <strong>and</strong> are always<br />

run with two medics allowing one medic to drive<br />

<strong>and</strong> one to attend to the patient.<br />

Becoming an<br />

Eco-Homemaker:<br />

Making your home<br />

eco-friendlier has never<br />

been easier.<br />

We have all become increasingly aware of how<br />

the products that we buy daily are having an<br />

impact far beyond our own four walls. Plastic<br />

bottles washing up on beaches, chemicals<br />

leaching into our ecosystems, you may have<br />

seen some of these things in the media but<br />

often feel overwhelmed <strong>and</strong> not quite sure<br />

how to help.<br />

One of the ways to create simple positive change is<br />

right here in our own homes.<br />

Think about all the products you <strong>and</strong> your family<br />

use in your homes (e.g. nappies, wipes, cloths,<br />

toothbrushes) <strong>and</strong> then think about all the single use<br />

plastic <strong>and</strong> toxins that you are consuming.<br />

Some of the<br />

reasons that may<br />

have held you back:<br />

1. Effectiveness:<br />

have you tried<br />

some of the<br />

eco-friendly<br />

products from<br />

your supermarket<br />

<strong>and</strong> been left<br />

unimpressed with<br />

the results <strong>and</strong> since been put off?<br />

2. Price: are you finding more eco-friendly<br />

alternatives to be more expensive? This is thankfully<br />

less <strong>and</strong> less the case <strong>and</strong> remember if you do end<br />

up spending more, you will likely save through reuse<br />

or more cost-effective refills.<br />

A few quick wins:<br />

•Swap out single use plastic for plastic free -<br />

biodegradable baby wipes instead of plastic<br />

containing wipes, compostable nappy bags instead<br />

of plastic ones, soap bars instead of shower gels,<br />

toothpaste tablets instead of toothpaste tubes<br />

•Find products that can be reused over <strong>and</strong> over<br />

again<br />

•Go for naturally derived products to minimise toxins<br />

in your home.<br />

Eco-Homemaker is an online platform to help you<br />

<strong>and</strong> your family find those eco-friendly solutions<br />

<strong>and</strong> a kinder way of living.<br />

Whether you are starting your pregnancy journey,<br />

in the thick of family life or just wanting to be a<br />

more eco-friendly homemaker, we offer a solution -<br />

a tried <strong>and</strong> tested selection of the most eco-friendly<br />

products brought together in an easy to use shopping<br />

platform.<br />

Hey! <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> you deserve the fastest, most<br />

Alcoholics Anonymous<br />

Alcoholics Anonymous is<br />

a non-profit fellowship,<br />

run by recovering<br />

alcoholics, to help<br />

people overcome their<br />

alcohol problems <strong>and</strong> live<br />

happy lives.<br />

AA is free, no referral needed & open to all. All<br />

communications are completely confidential.<br />

AA is for anyone who thinks they might have<br />

a problem with alcohol, or for whom alcohol<br />

is costing more than money.<br />

There are 7 AA meetings a week in <strong>Beaconsfield</strong><br />

<strong>and</strong> many more in the surrounding area. Friendly<br />

help <strong>and</strong> support is available to all. Before the<br />

p<strong>and</strong>emic, AA met for in-person meetings,<br />

often in church halls <strong>and</strong> the like. Since the<br />

p<strong>and</strong>emic, AA has turned to online meetings.<br />

It’s possible to attend an online AA meeting<br />

anywhere in the world 24/7. Since COVID<br />

restrictions were lifted, many meetings have<br />

returned to meeting face to face, but still<br />

maintaining COVID-safe precautions according<br />

to the latest Gov guidelines. Anyone going to<br />

an AA meeting will be warmly welcomed, you<br />

don’t have to say anything if you don’t want<br />

to, you don’t have to say your name, there is<br />

no commitment <strong>and</strong> it’s free.<br />

Our experience in AA is we find a way to turn<br />

our lives around, regain the trust of friends<br />

<strong>and</strong> family, <strong>and</strong> leave behind the adverse<br />

consequences or our drinking.<br />

So if you, or someone you know, has a<br />

problem with drinking, please contact us:<br />

We are supporting the<br />

#40by50 hedgerows<br />

campaign…you can too!<br />

CPRE, the countryside charity, have almost a<br />

century of experience in campaigning for the<br />

countryside. We have played a central role in<br />

the creation of National Parks, Green Belts<br />

<strong>and</strong> the introduction of the plastic bag charge.<br />

We have recently launched the campaign #40by50<br />

to ask the Government to commit to extending<br />

our vital hedgerows network 40% by 2050. CPRE<br />

Buckinghamshire are working with many other<br />

charities including the Woodl<strong>and</strong> Trust, RSPB <strong>and</strong><br />

Greenpeace to support this goal.<br />

Hedgerows are the unsung heroes of our<br />

countryside. They provide enthralling vistas,<br />

absorb carbon emissions <strong>and</strong> are vital to our<br />

local wildlife that depend on them for shelter,<br />

protection, nesting <strong>and</strong> food. Despite their<br />

undeniable importance, many are disappearing<br />

with devastating effects. Here are some<br />

astonishing statistics:<br />

• Nearly half our hedgerows have been lost since<br />

1945, some 300,000 miles.<br />

• As many as 600 plants, 65 birds, 20 mammal<br />

species <strong>and</strong> 1,500 insects depend on our<br />

hedgerows.<br />

• Hedgerows are also considered to support as<br />

many as 30% of our butterflies.<br />

• Over 80% of our woodl<strong>and</strong> birds rely on them for<br />

their home.<br />

• They store some 47 million tonnes of carbon<br />

dioxide, equivalent to >3 million cars over 10 years!<br />

Why not consider planting a hedge if you have<br />

space in your garden? For more information please<br />

EYE NEWS<br />

Time for an<br />

eye test?<br />

With most of us spending significant amounts<br />

of time on laptops, tablets <strong>and</strong> mobile phones<br />

it’s easy to assume that eye strain is something<br />

you have to accept.<br />

Taking regular breaks from the screen, blinking<br />

frequently, looking at distant objects <strong>and</strong> drinking<br />

plenty of water helps, but screens have tiny pixels<br />

(harder than reading a book) so try Increasing font<br />

size or adjusting the contrast or glare. Position light<br />

sources with daylight bulbs behind you so that the<br />

page/screen is illuminated.<br />

Over the age of 40 your vision tends to deteriorate<br />

..so if you are prescribed glasses by your optician you<br />

should wear them. There is a great range of designer<br />

frames in either bright or subtle colours or minimal<br />

rimless designs <strong>and</strong> light weight lenses. There is also<br />

little evidence to suggest that wearing glasses makes<br />

you more dependent on them so why not make the<br />

most of your vision?<br />

An eye test is not just about vision. It is really<br />

important in managing your eye health. As your<br />

eyes have some of the body’s smallest blood vessels<br />

they are also an indicator of general health. An eye<br />

test can detect high blood pressure, high cholesterol<br />

<strong>and</strong> other health conditions. Your optician will want<br />

to ensure that your eyes are as healthy as possible<br />

<strong>and</strong> that you are maximising your vision by wearing<br />

glasses <strong>and</strong>/or contacts with the right prescription.<br />

This is also very important for children, so book<br />

them in for regular tests, especially if you see any<br />

signs of straining the eyes when reading or watching<br />

television.<br />

Having your eyes tested is an easy health check for<br />

<strong>2022</strong>. If you have any questions concerning your<br />

eyes just ask your optician.<br />

Roses are red…<br />

Last year The Town Council was made aware<br />

that the Roses at the Memorial Garden in<br />

the old town of <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> were in need of<br />

replacement. The roses have been st<strong>and</strong>ing<br />

guard <strong>and</strong> blooming for over 25 years <strong>and</strong><br />

were in need of a change.<br />

The Chairman of Open Spaces, Cllr Alex<br />

Dunlop <strong>and</strong> his committee, with advice<br />

from the Town Crier, Dick Smith, set about<br />

choosing <strong>and</strong> organizing the replacement. 181<br />

roses were ordered <strong>and</strong> have been planted.<br />

The roses were:- At Peace, Remembrance<br />

<strong>and</strong> Captain Tom.<br />

We would like to thank our sponsors who<br />

have contributed towards this project.<br />

The Hon Jenefer Farncombe who said,<br />

“I am delighted to contribute to this project<br />

<strong>and</strong> looking forward to seeing them bloom”<br />

<strong>and</strong> Councillor Alex Dunlop who said, “I<br />

was very honoured to serve as the Mayor<br />

of <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> felt that this was a great<br />

opportunity to give a little colour back to<br />

the town”<br />

And many thanks to Andrew Halksworth <strong>and</strong><br />

his team at Tendercare for kindly installing<br />

the roses.<br />

Scouts get set for Korea<br />

Over 50 Scouts <strong>and</strong> six volunteers from<br />

Buckinghamshire have started their journey<br />

to attend the World Scout Jamboree in Korea<br />

next year.<br />

After selection events held in the latter part of<br />

2021, 36 of the young people <strong>and</strong> four of the<br />

adults held their first training camp last weekend.<br />

Many of them had not met any of the others before<br />

<strong>and</strong> so it was a great opportunity to find out about<br />

the other members of the unit who were going on<br />

their journey.<br />

The young people met at Wendover <strong>and</strong> one<br />

of their first tasks was to plan a route to Braid<br />

Wood camp site. They then walked it with their<br />

equipment for the weekend. Once they arrived<br />

they had to pitch their tents. They spent time<br />

talking to each other, finding out about names,<br />

schools, sports, hobbies etc. The next task was<br />

to prepare <strong>and</strong> cook their evening meal.<br />

Badge design, games, some tidying up of the<br />

camp site were all on the plan for the remainder of<br />

the weekend.<br />

Sarah Cordes, one of the leadership team said,<br />

“I put myself forward for selection as I wanted to<br />

celebrate my 10 years as being a volunteer with<br />

Scouts. I also wanted to do something really<br />

challenging after all of the restrictions we’ve had for<br />

the last two years. I also wanted to take myself out<br />

of my comfort zone.”<br />

Sophie Newcombe <strong>and</strong> Rory Atwell said, “At the<br />

selection events we were given various tasks such<br />

as building a flag pole or designing a gateway <strong>and</strong><br />

we were assessed for team working, leadership,<br />

supporting others <strong>and</strong> how we were involved.”<br />

In the next 18 months we will be organising race<br />

nights, barn dances, bingo nights <strong>and</strong> writing to<br />

trusts, councillors <strong>and</strong> businesses to help us raise<br />

£3600 which is the cost for each of us to attend.”<br />

Georgia Alton said, “I’m really looking forward to<br />

getting to know the adults <strong>and</strong> the other 35 people<br />

in our unit. We’ve got lots of events planned for<br />

the next 18 months <strong>and</strong> I’m sure we’ll have an<br />

awesome time in Korea.”<br />

Girlguiding <strong>Beaconsfield</strong><br />

What better way to spend a weekend in<br />

February than camping in the fresh air with<br />

a crowd of other young people wanting to<br />

have a bit of fun?<br />

The <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Guides <strong>and</strong> Rangers, have<br />

just returned from the ‘February Freezer’ camp<br />

where they braved the elements <strong>and</strong> took part in<br />

the outdoor challenges. The camp is a festival, with<br />

a safe <strong>and</strong> friendly vibe, where Buckinghamshire<br />

guides <strong>and</strong> scouts can join in various activities<br />

from zip lining <strong>and</strong> archery to whittling wood <strong>and</strong><br />

backwoods cooking <strong>and</strong>, when it rained, playing<br />

in the mud! The evening entertainment included<br />

b<strong>and</strong>s <strong>and</strong> a giant screen showing ‘The Greatest<br />

Showman’.<br />

Sadly, there was no snow but the temperature on<br />

Friday night dipped to 1ºC so we woke to a dusting<br />

of frost on the tents. We all had a great weekend,<br />

<strong>and</strong> it was fantastic to see the Guides <strong>and</strong> Rangers<br />

resuming outdoor adventures with their peers after<br />

the last 2 years of restrictions.<br />

units operating regular weekly meetings,<br />

outings <strong>and</strong> overnight residentials. New<br />

volunteers are always welcome.If you would<br />

development of young people, please get in touch!<br />

Financial Planning<br />

More clients are using our financial life<br />

planning service for a variety of financial<br />

scenarios. We use smart technology to help<br />

draw a picture of their current financial<br />

position <strong>and</strong> build meaningful plans for the<br />

future based on their goals.<br />

Initially, we used this technology mainly for<br />

retirement preparation, but we have also found it<br />

to be helpful to clients with a variety of conundrums<br />

including private care homes, school fees, or even<br />

a possible career change.<br />

Think of it like a sat-nav in the car. Not only will it<br />

help you underst<strong>and</strong> where you are <strong>and</strong> where you<br />

want to go, but will also highlight all the possible<br />

routes, helping to avoid any roadblocks along<br />

the way. This type of future cashflow planning is a<br />

consultative experience helping you visualise your<br />

future lifestyle <strong>and</strong> bringing a sharper reality to the<br />

financial decisions you need to make.<br />

It’s possible to run through many different scenarios<br />

to see how they might affect your finances. These<br />

can range from retiring ambitiously early, through to<br />

the technical stuff, such as the impact of investment<br />

returns <strong>and</strong> the tax man on your overall financial<br />

plan. Life events such as marriage, your first child<br />

or gr<strong>and</strong>child, changing jobs, or buying property<br />

for yourself <strong>and</strong> family all have a financial outcome.<br />

This is why it is important that any financial forecast<br />

is regularly reviewed to check against progress <strong>and</strong><br />

provide the best chance of meeting its target.<br />

We believe the best way we can assist the<br />

happiness <strong>and</strong> financial health of our clients<br />

is by helping them to create a realistic plan<br />

focused on their life goals.<br />

If You Go Down to the<br />

Woods Today…<br />

Playing is children’s work <strong>and</strong> the great<br />

outdoors is a perfect learning environment.<br />

At Thorpe House Lower School we pride<br />

ourselves on our broad curriculum, which includes<br />

an established <strong>and</strong> forward-thinking Forest School,<br />

from Reception to Year 5 inclusive. We are proud<br />

to share our beautiful forest environment <strong>and</strong> our<br />

dedicated <strong>and</strong> fully qualified Forest School leader,<br />

with Chalfont Buttercups Nursery, every week.<br />

The Buttercups children show such delight in their<br />

sessions with us <strong>and</strong> are confident to explore the<br />

forest environment they have come to know <strong>and</strong><br />

love. Making popcorn on the campfire, sipping<br />

hot chocolate <strong>and</strong> listening to stories about<br />

nature; or swinging blissfully in the hammock <strong>and</strong><br />

playing imaginatively in the den, are weekly treats.<br />

Additionally, the children love the challenge of the<br />

‘Holly High-Ropes’ <strong>and</strong> walking the plank, where<br />

gross motor skills are honed. Making mud pies or<br />

leafy-stick stews in the mud kitchen is such creative<br />

fun!<br />

Webinars to help parents<br />

have ‘Uncomfortable<br />

Conversations’ with their<br />

children<br />

In <strong>March</strong>, <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> High School in<br />

association with the Friends of <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> High<br />

are launching the first in a series of webinars<br />

entitled Uncomfortable Conversations.<br />

The webinars are aimed at parents <strong>and</strong> will help<br />

them navigate a range of conversations from<br />

neurodiversity <strong>and</strong> student wellbeing to anti-racism<br />

<strong>and</strong> gender equality. The webinars will feature an<br />

expert in the field <strong>and</strong> the lived experiences of<br />

<strong>Beaconsfield</strong> High’s diverse student body.<br />

Their first webinar will focus on anti-racism: How<br />

to Have Conversations About Race at Home with<br />

author <strong>and</strong> blogger Uju Asika. Uju has written<br />

the book Bringing Up Race: How to Raise a Kind<br />

Child in a Prejudiced World which is authentic,<br />

transparent, research based <strong>and</strong> filled with every<br />

question <strong>and</strong> answer all parents might have about<br />

race <strong>and</strong> racism. Uju makes an uncomfortable<br />

conversation safe <strong>and</strong> accessible for all parents <strong>and</strong><br />

For healthy minds, strong bodies <strong>and</strong> pre-writing<br />

skills, Forest School learning opportunities are<br />

ideal. Communication <strong>and</strong> language blossom as<br />

the children feel so comfortable in this environment.<br />

Social <strong>and</strong> emotional skills are addressed as they<br />

work <strong>and</strong> play in the natural world.<br />

We are delighted to share with Chalfont Buttercups<br />

<strong>and</strong> guiding their little explorers has made our<br />

Thorpe House community an even more wonderful<br />

school.<br />

Your local Independent School. Thorpe House<br />

School is an all-through school for boys aged 4-16.<br />

Open Day, Wednesday 16th <strong>March</strong>, 09:00-11:00.<br />

Book your place at thorpehouse.co.uk<br />

we are so happy she will be a part of our webinar<br />

series. The webinar also welcomes a group of six<br />

students, from the <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> High community<br />

<strong>and</strong> The <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> School, who discuss their<br />

own lived experiences of racism.<br />

If you have found talking to your child about race a<br />

challenge, you will find this webinar informative <strong>and</strong><br />

supportive.<br />

This webinar will be available to<br />

purchase in <strong>March</strong> <strong>2022</strong> via the<br />

Paternity Fraud – Who’s the Daddy?<br />

Paternity fraud arises when the mother of a<br />

child deliberately or recklessly makes a man<br />

believe he is the biological father of the child.<br />

The discovery that he is not the biological father can<br />

have devastating consequences for him, the child <strong>and</strong><br />

the family. Often, paternity fraud is only discovered<br />

when a couple separate. Inevitably this discovery can<br />

exacerbate tensions <strong>and</strong> further destabilise the family<br />

dynamic when there is already huge emotional turmoil.<br />

Can the man still spend time with the children even<br />

if he is not the biological father?<br />

Being a child’s biological parent is not the sole<br />

consideration of whether that child can spend time with<br />

someone. In cases of paternity fraud, if the man <strong>and</strong><br />

child have a strong relationship <strong>and</strong> it is considered<br />

to be in the best interests of the child to maintain that<br />

relationship, especially if both parties wish it, the Court<br />

will likely agree that the contact should continue.<br />

Does the man still have to pay child maintenance?<br />

Child maintenance is a legal obligation requiring the<br />

biological parent with whom a child spends fewer<br />

nights during a year, to make payments to the other<br />

parent for the benefit of the child. Therefore a man<br />

who is not the biological father cannot be forced to<br />

pay child maintenance. However, if there is a Court<br />

Order in place providing for child maintenance or an<br />


assessment has been made by the Child Maintenance<br />

Service, the man must prove that he is not the<br />

biological father in order to cease payments.<br />

Can the man make a claim against the mother due<br />

to her fraud?<br />

In situations of paternity fraud, the only claim available<br />

to the father is in the Civil Court (not the Family Courts)<br />

by making a claim under the tort of deceit.<br />

It is, however, always worth considering the impact such<br />

an application might have on the family <strong>and</strong> particularly<br />

the child. Unfortunately, often fathers seeking damages<br />

from a mother for paternity fraud are considered, by<br />

some, as acting unjustifiably <strong>and</strong> detrimentally to the<br />

child. It should also be considered what impact it will<br />

have on the child if the man is successful in claiming<br />

damages from the mother, the impact it would have<br />

on the child’s relationship with the man <strong>and</strong> the man’s<br />

ongoing relationship with the mother.<br />

Anyone who thinks they have been a<br />

victim of paternity fraud should take<br />

specialist advice from a family lawyer<br />

as to your rights.<br />

Buckinghamshire<br />

Bluebell Walks<br />

With Spring fast approaching, now is the<br />

time to get out <strong>and</strong> enjoy our gorgeous<br />

countryside all the more. Mid <strong>April</strong> is<br />

generally the ideal time to first see lustrous<br />

bluebells poking out from their woodl<strong>and</strong><br />

surroundings <strong>and</strong> then in their full glory as<br />

the month matures into May.<br />

We are so lucky to have a huge choice of bluebell<br />

walks locally, far too many to cover fully here so<br />

we have highlighted 5 particularly favoured ones<br />

for you. Details <strong>and</strong> links for more information<br />

are provided so do check that the bluebells have<br />

appeared as well as opening times, availability,<br />

parking <strong>and</strong> if any charges apply when you plan<br />

your visit.<br />

Cliveden Woods<br />

These are National<br />

Trust woods <strong>and</strong> there<br />

is an impressive house<br />

to explore if you so<br />

choose to enhance<br />

your visit. You can also<br />

find an activity areas<br />

for kids <strong>and</strong> café<br />

amongst other<br />

attractions.<br />

Penn Woods<br />

Penn Woods are one of the largest ancient<br />

woodl<strong>and</strong>s in the Chilterns with over 50 ancient<br />

trees. Predominantly beeches, the woodl<strong>and</strong> also<br />

offers glorious bluebell displays in Spring. This<br />

precious resource was saved from being turned into<br />

a golf course in the 1990s <strong>and</strong> it is now owned by<br />

The Woodl<strong>and</strong> Trust. https://www.woodl<strong>and</strong>trust.<br />

org.uk/visiting-woods/woods/penn-wood-1/<br />

Hughenden Manor<br />

This is another National Trust gem. The bluebell<br />

trail in the Hughenden Manor beech woods is<br />

utterly gorgeous. Additionally you can consider<br />

adding a visit to the Manor itself to extend your<br />

visit. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/hughenden/<br />

features/what-to-expect-on-your-visit-to-hughenden<br />

adventure playground <strong>and</strong> many other activities.<br />

These include a ‘Gruffalo’ sculpture <strong>and</strong><br />

orienteering challenge, ‘Superworm’ trail as well<br />

as ‘Go-Ape’ Tree Top walks for those with like<br />

heights! (Specific charges apply for these activities).<br />

Ashridge Estate<br />

This incredible National<br />

Trust estate has arguably<br />

some of the best<br />

bluebell woodl<strong>and</strong> in<br />

our area. It spans both<br />

Buckinghamshire <strong>and</strong><br />

Hertfordshire <strong>and</strong> is<br />

renowned for the<br />

spectacles that can be<br />

seen around <strong>April</strong> <strong>and</strong><br />

May. The estate is home to some of our precious<br />

ancient woodl<strong>and</strong> sites <strong>and</strong> there are conservation<br />

projects in place to help preserve such absolute<br />

treasures. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/<br />

At CPRE, The Countryside Charity, we believe<br />

that the countryside is for everybody, <strong>and</strong> that a<br />

beautiful, thriving countryside enriches all our lives.<br />

We are a national charity with a network of local<br />

groups in every county. We have almost a century<br />

of experience in campaigning for the countryside.<br />

We have played a central role in making huge<br />

changes happen: from the creation of National<br />

How to reduce heat loss from your<br />

home - the’ fabric first’ approach<br />

We all know that we are being asked to<br />

do ‘our bit’ in being more eco-friendly.<br />

How can we achieve this in our homes? A family<br />

asked EcoTiffin to do just that <strong>and</strong> after enlisting<br />

their help, they commented, “EcoTiffin saved us<br />

37% in energy bills whilst increasing our square<br />

footage by 35%, giving us a warm <strong>and</strong> welcoming<br />

home.”<br />

Moisture in brickwork is the worst possible<br />

ingredient to have in your property <strong>and</strong> every effort<br />

should be made to prevent the ingress of moisture.<br />

Moisture in the brickwork reduces the brick’s thermal<br />

capacity to retain heat <strong>and</strong> it has a chilling effect like<br />

a fridge on your home. Solid brick walls are by far<br />

the worst. Remember; wet walls are cold walls!<br />

The fabric first approach is essential when improving<br />

insulation to roofs, walls, floors <strong>and</strong> windows <strong>and</strong> are<br />

just some of the ways of reducing heat-loss. The use<br />

of thermography (thermal imaging) is an exciting<br />

<strong>and</strong> relatively new application in the building world.<br />

If you want to identify areas of excessive heat loss<br />

in your home <strong>and</strong> create an eco-friendly building,<br />

using thermographic equipment, is a good place<br />

to start.<br />

Robert Tiffin (descendant of the original family)<br />

<strong>and</strong> highly respected building expert <strong>and</strong> Quantity<br />

Surveyor, has seen a rise in the number of families<br />

wanting to make their homes work more efficiently.<br />

Evidence from thermograms help to provide much<br />

of the data to substantiate Robert’s bespoke reports<br />

for each property in “seeing the unseen”. To<br />

the trained eye, the results can reveal important<br />

information enabling a clear diagnosis. Home<br />

owners look forward to maximising their comfort<br />

to a warm, cosy <strong>and</strong> cost effective, healthier<br />

environment for themselves <strong>and</strong> their families.<br />

Safe & gentle ear wax removal at a clinic near you<br />

Why choose microsuction?<br />

The microsuction procedure is widely regarded as the safest, most<br />

comfortable <strong>and</strong> quickest means of ear cleaning. No outdated ear<br />

syringing, messy oil treatment or dangerous <strong>and</strong> ineffective Hopi ear<br />

c<strong>and</strong>les! Our specialist microsuction equipment, in the h<strong>and</strong>s of our<br />

trained experts, is far safer <strong>and</strong> more comfortable than other forms<br />

of ear wax removal.<br />

Irrigation is the use of a controlled flow of water to flush out wax<br />

from the ear. It is safer than manual syringing which is now a banned<br />

practice in the UK. Irrigation can be particularly useful for very<br />

deep wax. Your audiologist should make the most appropriate<br />

recommendation on how to remove the wax.<br />

Our associated clinicians are all registered with the HCPC.<br />

They have all undertaken training, <strong>and</strong> achieved competency<br />

in wax removal <strong>and</strong> should use best practice procedures to<br />

ensure you walk away a happy <strong>and</strong> satisfied customer.<br />

Are you experiencing any of the following?<br />

• Pressure in the ears<br />

• Blocked feeling in the ears<br />

• Need to pop your ears but can’t<br />

• Sudden loss of hearing or muffles sound<br />

• Hearing aids whistling<br />

A new appeal to help<br />

children <strong>and</strong> teenagers<br />

in hospital is launched<br />

today<br />

Royal Brompton <strong>and</strong> Harefield Hospitals<br />

Charity are raising funds for patients under the<br />

age of 18 at Royal Brompton <strong>and</strong> Harefield<br />

hospitals via their new Young Patients’ appeal,<br />

which launches today.<br />

The two hospitals are world leaders in heart<br />

<strong>and</strong> lung care <strong>and</strong> look after young people with<br />

a range of medical conditions; from premature<br />

babies who need heart surgery, to children with<br />

asthma, to young adults with cystic fibrosis.<br />

Royal Brompton <strong>and</strong> Harefield Hospitals<br />

Charity is always looking for ways to improve<br />

the experience of patients at the hospitals,<br />

which is why they have launched this appeal to<br />

enhance the care of young patients.<br />

Richard Bowyer, Chief Executive of Royal<br />

Brompton <strong>and</strong> Harefield Hospitals Charity, said:<br />

“Royal Brompton <strong>and</strong> Harefield hospitals<br />

provide incredible care for patients of all ages.<br />

At the Charity we are committed to helping<br />

our NHS colleagues provide the absolute<br />

best care for young people to help them<br />

lead happy, healthy lives. These new projects<br />

will strengthen paediatric physiotherapy<br />

at the hospitals <strong>and</strong> provide new education<br />

opportunities for patients spending long periods<br />

in hospital. It will make a significant difference to<br />

young people facing big challenges.”<br />

The Young Patients’ appeal will fund several<br />

projects to help children <strong>and</strong> young adults at<br />

the hospitals. These include funding for Chloe<br />

Worger, a paediatric physiotherapist; providing<br />

for the Foulis Ward Education Project, which<br />

helps patients studying for their GCSEs <strong>and</strong><br />

A-Levels; <strong>and</strong> a range of other projects to make<br />

sure the hospitals stay at the leading edge of<br />

young patient care.<br />

Paediatric physiotherapist Chloe Worger said:<br />

“Physiotherapy is an important part of the<br />

recovery journey of a patient. An unmissable<br />

part actually. Here at the hospitals, we are using<br />

the latest techniques <strong>and</strong> practices to make<br />

sure that our young patients really are in the<br />

best h<strong>and</strong>s.”<br />

This new appeal follows up a series of<br />

successful appeals for Royal Brompton <strong>and</strong><br />

Harefield hospitals in 2021. The Charity’s<br />

Covid-19 Relief Fund purchased £182,000<br />

worth of new equipment to help the hospitals<br />

treat some of the most severely ill Covid-19<br />

patients. Their Life in Focus <strong>and</strong> Lifeline Lab<br />

appeals paid for state-of-the-art imaging<br />

equipment for catheter laboratories at each<br />

hospital, which will save <strong>and</strong> enhance many<br />

lives. The Charity is also raising funds to help<br />

with the mental health of recovering Covid-19<br />

patients.<br />

<strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Historical<br />

Society: Preserving the<br />

history of the town<br />

<strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Historical Society, formed in<br />

1961, is perhaps the longest-established<br />

Society in <strong>Beaconsfield</strong>.<br />

The aim of the<br />

Society remains<br />

the same; “To<br />

encourage the<br />

study of all branches<br />

of history <strong>and</strong> the<br />

preservation of<br />

historical records,<br />

buildings <strong>and</strong> objects.<br />

It shall pay special<br />

attention to<br />

the collection,<br />

preservation <strong>and</strong><br />

publication of<br />

material <strong>and</strong> to<br />

the compilation of<br />

records relating<br />

to the history of<br />

<strong>Beaconsfield</strong>”.<br />

In <strong>2022</strong> the Society has nearly 200 members.<br />

Ongoing activities include the ever-popular<br />

monthly talks in the Fitzwilliams Centre throughout<br />

the winter months, a varied <strong>and</strong> interesting<br />

programme of outings to places of historical<br />

interest during the summer, the continuing<br />

collecting <strong>and</strong> preserving of material for the<br />

Archive <strong>and</strong>, in <strong>2022</strong>, a Heritage Walks project<br />

in conjunction with the <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Society.<br />

The Omicron Covid variant disrupted talks this<br />

winter in the Fitzwilliams Centre. However, we<br />

are now back <strong>and</strong> the final talk of the 2021/22<br />

programme, preceded by the Society’s AGM, will<br />

be held on 26th <strong>March</strong> at 2.15 in the Fitzwilliams<br />

Centre when Professor Ian Beckett will give a<br />

talk entitled “Dad’s Army in Bucks”. Talks are<br />

free for members <strong>and</strong> visitors pay just £3 at the<br />

door. The programme of summer outings, yet to<br />

be announced at time of writing, will then take<br />

place.<br />

Later this year, four Heritage Walks, taking in<br />

both Old Town <strong>and</strong> New Town places of historical<br />

interest, are to be published in conjunction with<br />

the <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Society. QR Links will take<br />

participants to the <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Historical Society<br />

website, where they will be able to read in more<br />

detail about the rich history of <strong>Beaconsfield</strong>.<br />

Details of the walks can be found on the Society<br />

website.<br />

Since 2015 the <strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Historical Society<br />

Archive Group has been meeting weekly (Covid<br />

restrictions allowing) in the Town Hall. Having<br />

taken on the herculean task of sorting <strong>and</strong><br />

cataloguing thous<strong>and</strong>s of items collected since<br />

1961, their work is on-going as history continues<br />

to happen. The Archive is stored, courtesy of the<br />

Town Council, in an attic at the top of the Town<br />

Hall, but faces an uncertain future due to potential<br />

changes within the New Town. Although not<br />

accessible to the public, the Society website<br />

www.beaconsfieldhistory.org.uk provides<br />

information on holdings within the Archive to<br />

the advantage of a local <strong>and</strong> worldwide research<br />

community. A solution to where the Archive<br />

can be permanently located, ideally with public<br />

access, is yet to be found <strong>and</strong> the Society would<br />

welcome any ideas/suggestions.<br />

<strong>Beaconsfield</strong> Historical<br />

Society continues to<br />

look forward to the<br />

future <strong>and</strong> new<br />

members are always<br />

welcome. Further<br />

details on how to join<br />

the Society, our talks<br />

<strong>and</strong> outings, as well as<br />

articles about the history of <strong>Beaconsfield</strong><br />

can be found on our website<br />

CAWC Bazaar<br />

raises £25,000!<br />

Words by Kathy Flake<br />

CAWC International’s Christmas Bazaar raised<br />

over £25,000 for the Chilterns-based Motor<br />

Neurone Disease Breathing Support Project,<br />

the highest total in 36 years.<br />

Robin Smirnov, Bazaar Chair, said ‘We are extremely<br />

proud that we have raised such a large amount of<br />

money which will make a huge impact to the Motor<br />

Neurone Disease Breathing Support Project! We are<br />

so grateful for all of the support we received from<br />

everyone <strong>and</strong> we are already looking forward to the<br />

next Christmas Bazaar.’<br />

All money raised, will go to the Motor Neurone<br />

Disease (MND) Breathing Support Project, delivered<br />

by the Palliative Care Service based at Florence<br />

Nightingale Hospice, part of Buckinghamshire NHS<br />

Trust. The project has the backing of the Chilterns<br />

Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.<br />

Sue Eddy, a physiotherapist involved with the MND<br />

Breathing Support Project, attended the bazaar <strong>and</strong><br />

said: ‘The CAWC Christmas Bazaar was absolutely<br />

amazing! Beautiful stalls <strong>and</strong> fabulous food <strong>and</strong><br />

drink. All funds raised will go to exp<strong>and</strong>ing <strong>and</strong><br />

deepening the support we’re able to give to MND<br />

sufferers <strong>and</strong> their loved ones.’<br />

Robin Smirnov - Bazaar co-Chair<br />

Pam Showalter - President, CAWC International<br />

Phil Murray - MNDA, Chilterns Branch<br />

Kate Harman - Bazaar co-Chair<br />

at the bazaar was vibrant <strong>and</strong> enthusiastic <strong>and</strong> we<br />

were able to answer all the varied questions which<br />

visitors asked about MND. What a coincidence<br />

that on the day of the bazaar the Government<br />

announced funding to include at least £50 million<br />

for MND related research to find a cure. Thank you<br />

so much, CAWC, for all you do to support good<br />

causes in the Chilterns.’<br />

CAWC International (formerly known as the<br />

Chilterns American Women’s Club) is a social <strong>and</strong><br />

philanthropic club, organized by women for women<br />

of all nationalities, based in the Chilterns. Originally<br />

founded in 1987, they have raised over £350,000<br />

for various charities in the Chilterns area.<br />

Sue Eddy, Physiotherapist<br />

Seven members of the Motor Neurone Disease<br />

Association, Chiltern Branch, assisted at the<br />

event. Supporter Phil Murray said, ‘The atmosphere<br />

The club has regular meetings <strong>and</strong> activities<br />

including crafts, hiking, golf, cinema, tennis,<br />

<strong>and</strong> more. They also arrange outings to places<br />

of interest. New members are always welcome,<br />

<strong>and</strong> are no longer required to have ties to North<br />

America. The club is multi-national with members<br />

from over 20 different countries. Anyone who<br />

wishes to enjoy the activities <strong>and</strong> help with<br />

philanthropic projects is encouraged to join.<br />
