Help shape the future of Aylesbury Garden Town through new website

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Wed, 06/13/2018 - 17:23

A new website has launched giving people the chance to have their say, as Aylesbury evolves into a Garden Town.  The site, which can be found at www.aylesburygardentown.co.uk  also has a detailed overview of the project, information about the organisations overseeing it and responds to frequently asked questions.

Aylesbury received Garden Town status from the government last year.  It recognised it as one of the key places for growth in the UK and brings the opportunity to receive extra funding to put in place the right infrastructure, facilities and leisure spaces, alongside new developments.

This summer, work will begin on the Masterplan that will provide the framework for the future of Aylesbury Garden Town, through to 2050 and beyond.  Liaising with the local community, to hear their views, is at the heart of the programme and in the last couple of months,  a series of forums have been held with residents, developers, community representatives, local stakeholders and partners. The feedback from these workshops will help inform the Masterplan.  Visitors to the new website can also now get involved and comment on what they’d like to see, by clicking on the ‘Have your say’ section.

Community Champion for the Aylesbury Garden Town project and County and District Councillor, Steve Bowles, said “We hope people will find the new website helpful.  It answers some of those key questions that have been raised about what becoming a garden town means. It also gives residents and businesses the chance to comment, which is crucial, as we want to make sure the community is very much involved as we plan for the future.”

The Aylesbury Garden Town project is a partnership between Aylesbury Vale District Council, Buckinghamshire County Council and the two Local Enterprise Partnerships (Buckinghamshire Thames Valley and South East Midlands).  Find out more about Aylesbury Garden Town and sign up for updates at www.aylesburygardentown.co.uk

Dementia Action Week 21-27 May 2018

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Tue, 05/15/2018 - 13:08

This year ‘ACTION’ is the main focus for Dementia Awareness.

There are now over 1700 Dementia Friends in Aylesbury including our Outdoor Team, and we are continuing to reduce the stigma associated with Dementia by delivering information sessions and promoting the Aylesbury Town Dementia Action Alliance which now has over 25 members including local solicitors Pickup & Scott, Thames Valley Police and MetroBank.

During ACTION week, there will be lots of activities taking place in the Parish including a Forget-me-not display in Friars Square from our intergenerational Care Home Tour as part of the “Who am I?” project, and coffee mornings at the Coffee Bean in Bedgrove and at the More+ Community Café in Broughton to name but a few ways the community is taking action to become Dementia Friendly.

As part of the Aylesbury Town Dementia Action Alliance, the Town Council in partnership with the Waterside Theatre and Bucks CCG are hosting a workshop and performance (delivered by VAMOS theatre) which focuses on positive and effective non-verbal communication for people living with Dementia. Our Dementia Champion will be inviting delegates to attend this event during Dementia ACTION Week.

The free Listening with Your Eyes workshop will take place in September at the Theatre, and is aimed at businesses and service providers to strengthen a ‘holding hands’ approach to our town by illustrating how a local café can help reduce isolation by being part of the coffee companion initiative; to the local Waste Services department promoting recycling options for people with Dementia or the elderly. These simple actions are examples of some of the positive changes already happening in Aylesbury.

November sees the production of Finding Joy at the Waterside Theatre. The play approaches the subject of Dementia with humour and humanity telling the story of 83 year-old Joy, and her grandson.

The Town Council is pleased to promote the key message to our residents and community that “There’s More to the person than the Dementia”

Aylesbury Breast Friends Support Groups

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Wed, 04/18/2018 - 16:35

Breast Friends is a small Aylesbury based support group run entirely by volunteers and offers a listening ear as well as practical, confidential support to those who have been affected by breast cancer. The group was formed several years ago by several ladies who wanted to ensure that others in the Aylesbury area would not feel the same isolation that they had experienced following their diagnosis of breast cancer.

Members of Breast Friends meet once a month, usually at Mandeville School, Ellen Road, Aylesbury, on the 1st Tuesday of each month, 7-9pm. There is the opportunity to get together for a chat over a tea and biscuits in a supportive and informal atmosphere. The monthly meetings often include guest speakers and other social events.

Whether you have just been diagnosed, are currently undergoing treatment or completed your active treatment a while ago, the group offers emotional support and practical, up-to-date information.

Above all, the group offers an understanding voice at the end of the phone should you ever need it.

If you or someone you care about has been affected by breast cancer, please take a look at our website:   www.breastfriends-aylesbury.org.uk

Alternatively if you prefer,  please call Jan on 01844 290362.
