Fusion, on behalf of HS2, will be starting to undertake the following works in the Aylesbury area this month;

  • Fencing
  • Non-Intrusive Surveying (Ecology and Utilities)
  • Vegetation clearance

These activities will be taking place along the line of the HS2 route in the area indicated on the map – this is between the Oxford Rd and the existing Marylebone railway line to the south of  Aylesbury.

Fusion will be sending out a notice to make local residents closest to these activities aware of what they are doing. HS2 Fencing Notices

You may notice some site signage on the highway around points where Fusion will be accessing the land from the road but this work will not involve significant amounts of local traffic. The fencing will not interrupt any of the existing public rights of way in this area.

Resident enquiries should be directed to the HS2 24/7 enquiry line as below;

Last year over 12,500 people came to Live in the Park – so it really is a fantastic opportunity, to get your name on the local music scene.

The Open Mic Competitions are open to all local performers, who haven’t performed at Live in the Park since 2013 and live within a 25mile radius of the town.

There will be 2 separate Open Mic Competitions to find an acoustic act for the Second Stage (Thursday 14 March) a band to perform on the Main Stage (Thursday 21 March).

“Outstanding” Result for Jonathan Page Play Centre

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Thu, 01/03/2019 - 12:38

The staff, parents and children at the Jonathan Page Play Centre and Aylesbury Town Council are starting 2019 off with a big celebration.

At its recent Ofsted inspection on 12 December the centre achieved an “Outstanding” rating for the Quality and standards of the Early Years Provision.

The play centre which offers an After School Club and Holiday Playscheme was rated outstanding in all three categories: effectiveness of leadership and management; quality of teaching, learning and assessment; personal development, behaviour and welfare. This result has taken place since Aylesbury Town Council took over the management of the centre in August 2016. The management and team have since worked tirelessly to make changes to ensure the longevity of the centre and compliance with the Early Years Statutory Framework.

Cllr Allison Harrison, Leader of the Council and Chairman of the Direct Services Committee said: “The journey over the last two years has often been a challenging one but I am very proud of the team and children in their care. The team are striving to be the best we can be and to receive this recognition from Ofsted at our first inspection since we took over the management of the centre, is fantastic news.”

Ofsted praised in particular the highly effective partnerships with staff at schools and nurseries which children also attend  and the very detailed understanding of each child’s skills and progress, which the staff build upon to meet the children’s individual needs at the centre. The children show exceptional levels of enthusiasm for attending the centre and can’t wait to tell visitors all about it and why they like it so much.

Little Kickers

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 09:44

Fun weekly football classes for children from 18 months – 7 years. Our goal is to engage and inspire as many children as possible to partake in sport through our fun and varied classes.  We believe that a positive introduction to sport at a young age sets them up for lifelong participation.

Not only do children learn basic football skills but also key social, cognitive and developmental skills. Each of our age groups also work towards achievement badges each term in their classes.

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) is seeking volunteers

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Fri, 10/12/2018 - 12:32

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) is seeking volunteers to join its Independent Custody Visiting Scheme in Aylesbury.

An Independent Custody Visitor (ICV) is a role performed by volunteers from the local community checking on the welfare and treatment of those being held in police custody.  ICV’s make unannounced visits to police stations to observe the conditions in which people are being held and, importantly, talk with willing detainees.

Volunteers typically make one custody visit a month ensuring that detainees have been offered food and drink, they are warm enough, cells are in a reasonable condition, that religious and cultural needs have been considered, have been informed of their rights and know the reason why they are in custody.  Any problems are brought to the attention of custody staff and the OPCC.

Police and Crime Commissioner, Anthony Stansfeld said ‘ICVs play a vital role in ensuring there is confidence in the way that detainees are being held and treated in police stations across the Thames Valley.  We currently have a number of vacancies in Aylesbury and I would encourage anyone who is looking for a rewarding role within their local community to apply.’

Applicants will be invited for interview and successful candidates will complete an induction programme before beginning the role.

ICVs must be 18 or over and should be independent of the police. Serving police officers or members of police or OPCC staff are not eligible to apply.

Anyone interested in applying can download an application form at www.thamesvalley-pcc.gov.uk/get-involved/independent-custody-visitors/

Closing date for applications is 31st October 2018
