The aim of these small groups is to engage with various sections of the community to gain information and aspirations of the village, and to add these into the content of the plan. It is vital to put together a plan that reflects the views of as many areas of the community as possible. So the Working Groups will be looking to contact residents, local business, authorities, schools – just about everyone who can make a difference. To find out how you could get involved contact the steering group – email: projectteam@arleseynp.org.uk For more information on the Neighbourhood Plan visit : http://arleseynp.org.uk Bumps, Babies & Beyond New Venue from 7th August On Friday Mornings at Campton Village Hall A place to meet with other local parents, share, chat and have a cuppa in a safe place.

Sylvia Geekie A group of members of Arlesey W.I. attended the funeral on Monday August 10th of Sylvia Geekie who had recently died, one month short of her 98th birthday. We went to pay our respects and to remember with fondness and joy our lovely Sylvia. She was probably our most long standing member. A member for 84 years, she joined when she was just 14 years old and the W.I. became an important part of her life. Sylvia was always cheerful, full of fun, and prettily dressed. Arlesey W. I. send their condolences to her family. We will miss her. Bron Martin President – Arlesey W.I. Volunteers needed! to deliver on the button magazine.
