AYLESBURY JUNIOR NETBALL CLUB NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Wed, 05/19/2021 - 14:43

With the easing of lockdown and in accordance with England Netball Covid-19 guidelines the Club is keen to return to netball in September 2021. To make it happen AJNC need a variety of new enthusiastic, dedicated volunteers and professionals to join our existing excellent team.

To help keep this fabulous club running we require new committee members, EN qualified netball coaches/officials and other volunteers who can provide valuable support to the coaches and umpires to assist with the smooth running of the Saturday morning training sessions.

The Club runs on Saturday mornings (8.30am-1pm) from September to May.

Aylesbury Junior Netball Club (AJNC) started in 1982 at Bedgrove Park, with a group of mums playing netball. Wanting to encourage their own children and their friends to play, the mums could not find any clubs for their daughters to play with others of similar ages and abilities. They decided to set up Aylesbury Junior Netball Club. For over 39 years Aylesbury Junior Netball Club has been encouraging girls and boys from school Year 4 (8yrs) to Year 10 (15yrs) to enjoy playing netball, many of whom stay with the club for the entire duration.

The club is open for anyone to ‘have a go’, and then should they wish, join the club, with over 100 girls attending each week.  Most of those interested in joining the club have come via word of mouth from those already playing, be it school friends or friends of friends. Also, many of the older players have continued to develop their skills and continue playing, joining clubs at senior youth and adult levels. The club also supports ex-players (year 10/11 onwards), who are completing their Duke of Edinburgh awards, by offering placements to complete their DofE Skills and volunteering requirements during the season.

If you would like to join us or would like more information, we would love to hear from you – please get in touch by emailing us at aylesburyjuniornetball@hotmail.com

Town Mayor’s ‘community stars’ awards

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Mon, 05/17/2021 - 15:04

@media only screen and (max-width:1024px) {.fusion-title.fusion-title-1{margin-top:0px!important;margin-bottom:10px!important;}}The Mayor of Aylesbury has awarded three residents with an award of appreciation after going above and beyond and supporting the Aylesbury community during the pandemic.

Dan Blaze, Marie Biswell and Vicki Parker have each been awarded with a certificate of appreciation to honour their dedicated and compassionate work.

Three other residents were recognised in September 2020, but eight months and another national lockdown later, three more residents have been noticed by the Town Mayor, Cllr Mike Smith.

He said: “I am delighted to recognise these individuals who, for the last year, have been inspiring and supporting our community during a very difficult year.

“Recently I did a Zoom interview with DJ Dan Blaze to celebrate the one-year anniversary of his weekly community TV broadcast. This is aired every Monday to care homes and others in isolated situations across the Aylesbury area – working in particular with the Gateway Club and their members. There are music requests, birthday dedications and karaoke but, most importantly, the broadcasts have kept spirits high in a fun, friendly and safe atmosphere.

“I thank Dan for giving his time and commitment to carry out such an important line of communication to those who may not be able to socialise with their own friends and family.”

Marie Biswell from facebook.com/HandTalking was also awarded with an appreciation award at the Town Hall.

Cllr Mike Smith said: “Marie is a sign interpreter and has signed at many Town Council events. She even supported Glastonbury before lockdown began. Over the last year, Marie has entertained so many by signing much-loved stories, songs and has even had time to fundraise for local charities. Marie is an inspiration, especially to those within our deaf community.”

The Town Mayor’s final award was given to Vicki Parker who has been working at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium delivering the vaccination programme. The Town Mayor visited the vaccination Hub to thank Vicki and other members of the team for their ongoing efforts.

Cllr Mike Smith said: “There are of course many volunteers and professionals at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium who have worked tirelessly over the past five months. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all. To those who greet you as you walk in, to the vaccinators, nursing staff and volunteers inside the Hub, for all your hard work and commitment in providing this vital service to us all – thank you.

“I am pleased to recognise Vicki Parker as one of our Community Stars. Vicki coordinates all the vaccinators, pharmacists, and most importantly the teams that contact the patients to invite them to their appointments. She ensures that as many vaccines are administered as possible and that not a single dose of the vaccine is wasted. This often involves rearranging appointments to accommodate those who may turn up on the incorrect day. She does this on top of her ‘day jobs’ of strategic management of three practices. Her dedication to ensuring that as many people receive their vaccine as soon as possible is outstanding.”

This is the last Mayoral engagement with Cllr Mike Smith as Town Mayor who has been Mayor since May 2019. Aylesbury Town’s new Mayor will be made on Thursday 20 May 2021.

Dementia Action Week 2021

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Mon, 05/17/2021 - 08:58

We pledge to continue raising vital awareness of dementia in the community during Dementia Action Week. Led by Alzheimer’s Society, Dementia Action Week (17-23 May) is a national event that encourages the public to come together to take action to improve the lives of people affected by dementia.

From supporting local groups and organisations by empowering them to be more dementia-aware to hosting online Dementia Friends information sessions – Aylesbury Town Council’s Dementia Friendly Aylesbury initiative is marching forward to make Aylesbury Town as dementia-conscious as possible. The successful initiative has also led to Aylesbury recently receiving ‘Working to becoming Dementia Friendly’ status for the fifth year.

Nightingale’s Rainbow

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Thu, 05/13/2021 - 09:44

We’re delighted to be one of the build sponsors for the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity rainbow sculpture project.

The last year has an extremely challenging time for many. From families being unable to visit loved ones in hospital and hospices to key workers working extremely hard throughout this pandemic, and everything in between. We believe the rainbow statue will allow the community to remember the strength of Aylesbury Town during this unprecedented time while also commemorating those in our community who we have lost. Aylesbury Town Council is proud to support this special community project.

@media only screen and (max-width:1024px) {.fusion-title.fusion-title-5{margin-top:0px!important;margin-bottom:10px!important;}}Support the project

We hope as many households and local businesses will join us to support this project by purchasing a tile where funds will be donated to the fantastic work of Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity. Click here to visit their website for more information.

Great British Spring Clean 2021

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Mon, 04/26/2021 - 10:04
@media only screen and (max-width:1024px) {.fusion-title.fusion-title-1{margin-top:0px!important;margin-bottom:10px!important;}}Calling all local litter heroes! Be part of the country’s biggest environmental campaign

The Great British Spring Clean is an initiative which is run by Keep Britain Tidy, a charity which aims to eliminate litter, end waste and improve places. Their latest campaign hopes to encourage the public to do their bit in their town by pledging to take part in a litter pick anytime between 28 May and 13 June 2021.

Members of the public, local schools, community groups and businesses are welcome to borrow Aylesbury Town Council’s Litter Pick Kits to help them with their pledge and remove litter from streets and parks in our local area.

The Litter Pick Kits provided by Aylesbury Town Council are available to anyone within the parish who would like to participate in the Great British Spring Clean. They include litter pickers, high vis jackets and bin bags. An arrangement can also be made for the Town Council to collect rubbish that has been picked.

Taking part in the Great British Spring Clean is not only good for the environment, but great for mental and physical health too. Last year, 79% of people who took part reported improved mood and 51% said it encouraged them to move more. Whether you pledge to take part alone, with your families or bubbles, or with your team remotely, it’s a great excuse to get outside.

An update on our summer events

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Wed, 04/21/2021 - 12:22

As we approach a summer of further uncertainty, it is imperative that our events programme is brought to you in a safe and enjoyable way.

Each year we provide a wide program of free community events full of variety, colour, fun and entertainment that reflects and enhances our fabulous town, bringing many of the town’s residents together. Like everyone in the country, we’re looking forward to being able to enjoy quality time with family, friends, neighbours and our community, but we all have to wait until it is safe and appropriate for us to do so.

Given the timings of the current government roadmap out of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Aylesbury on Sea, which was due to take place on Sunday 4 July.

Rest assured that the Beach in the Park will return in 2022 (government guidelines permitting, of course), where you’ll be able to enjoy the open stretch of beautiful sand, Punch & Judy shows, the land train and a plethora of fun, games and beachside excitement.

The decision on Parklife Weekend, which takes place over the August bank holiday weekend and features Live in the Park, Proms in the Park and other partner events, is still in the balance.

Our desire to bring you this amazing free family festival in 2021 is very high, but so is the uncertainty and concern of how COVID-19 is going to progress in the coming months.

Provisional plans are taking place behind the scenes and a final decision about the viability of the Parklife Weekend will be made at the end of May when more information will be released from government.

This will enable us to make the right decision for all involved, including performers, suppliers, the hospitality team, volunteers, staff and of course you – our wonderful community who make this event so enjoyable. Everyone’s safety is our primary focus.

We look forward to being able to share further details with you in early June.

Perfect pruning, fine flowers, pleasing plants and creative colours – just grow with the flow at this year’s Aylesbury in Bloom Garden Competition organised by Aylesbury Town Council.

Judges want to see what gardening skills residents, organisations, businesses and schools within the Parish of Aylesbury have to offer this summer.

The Town Council has hosted this event every year since 2007 but after taking a break in 2020 due to the pandemic it’s back and the judges are looking forward to visiting entrants’ gardens, schools and local businesses and organisations in July and August. The competition is once again supported by Michael Anthony Estate Agents, for which the Council are very grateful.

To ensure everyone’s safety all judging visits will be adhering to government COVID-19 guidelines which will be in place at the time of judging.

NOT The Midnight Walk

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Mon, 04/19/2021 - 08:59

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity is asking everyone to set their alarm clocks for 5am on Saturday 10 July and join hundreds of others (virtually) for a dawn walk to raise crucial funds to support the Hospice.

           

“Whilst we are disappointed not to be able to go ahead with our traditional Midnight Walk, we had such an overwhelmingly positive reaction to last year’s event that we are confident that it will be a great success and raise a fantastic amount of money to help fund local hospice care again”, says Julie Chittie, Events Manager at Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity.

This year Walkers are again be asked to walk a minimum of 5 miles, wherever they want, starting at 5am on Saturday 10 July.  The event is open to all, whatever your age and wherever you are in the world  – last year saw lots of children (and dogs) join in so this year the Charity are offering children’s T-shirts and dog bandanas so everyone can be a part of the event.

The Midnight Walk is a long-standing and major fundraiser for the charity, and with their income hit so badly over the past year, they are hoping everyone will get behind them by signing up to this year’s virtual event and help to raise the thousands of pounds needed to help secure the future of local hospice care.

Aylesbury in Bloom Terms and Conditions 2021

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Mon, 04/12/2021 - 16:03

Entrants to the Aylesbury in Bloom Garden Competition organised by Aylesbury Town Council (ATC) must agree and adhere to the following terms and conditions.

Definitions:

The “entrant” is the Resident, School, Business or Organisation entering the competition.

“ATC” is Aylesbury Town Council, who is coordinating the competition.

The “garden” is any type of garden entered and includes:

  • For Residents: best front garden, best back garden, best edible garden, best wildlife/nature garden, best container garden (including window boxes, pots, baskets), best young gardener (under 16 years).
  • For Schools: best garden in a pot
  • For Organisations & Businesses: best communal garden

The above are separate categories for the competition.

The “ATC Website” is aylesburytowncouncil.gov.uk

1.   Entries and Categories
  1. The entrant must be situated within the boundaries of the Parish of Aylesbury Town. If the entrant has any doubt as to whether their property falls within the boundaries, they should contact ATC using the details on the ATC website, or on this form.
  2. All types of gardens are accepted including, but not exclusive to, the types mentioned under the definition of “garden” above.
  3. The minimum number of entrants needed for a category to run is two. If only one entrant is entered into a category, they will be informed that their category is no longer valid on or before the judging day and offered the opportunity to change categories if desired and possible.
  4. The judging criteria for each category will be made available on the ATC website on 19 April 2021. The judges will use these criteria to make their decision, to ensure their decision is fair and not clouded by personal preference.
  5. The entrant may make additional information and photographs available to the judges on the judging date to better explain the work which has gone into the garden.
  6. ATC may suggest to certain entrants that they may wish to change or add a category if the judges feel the entrant would be better suited to a different category. This may happen after the judging has taken place. Neither ATC nor the judges will move an entrant into another category without that entrant’s permission.
  7. Entries close on the 14 June 2021.
  8. The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
2.   Judging Day
  1. ATC will confirm the identity of the judges by letter.
  2. The exact date of judging will be confirmed nearer the time but is expected to take place at the end of June (for schools only), mid-July and August. ATC will inform the entrant of the exact judging date and time by letter after the closing date of 14 June 2021.
  3. The entrant will also be informed a reasonable time in advance of the judges’ estimated time of arrival at the entrant’s property on judging day. However please note these times will be subject to change. If the actual time of arrival will be substantially different to the estimated time given to the entrant, ATC will make all reasonable attempts to inform the entrant by telephone call on the day.
  4. The entrant may request to be visited by the judges at a specific time on the judging day, and ATC will make all reasonable attempts to accommodate requests. However, ATC can issue no guarantees that the requested time can be given.
  5. ATC reserves the right to change the date of judging as necessary and will make all reasonable attempts to provide adequate warning to the entrant if this is due to take place.
  6. On judging day, the judging party will consist of two judges and at least one ATC staff member.
  7. Photos will be taken of each garden on the day by the ATC staff member. These will be used on the Council’s website and the Council’s social media platforms and in the quarterly parish magazine and for future publicity. By entering, the entrant agrees that the photos taken of their garden can be used by ATC for publicity purposes.
3.   COVID-19 Safety
  1. To ensure everyone’s safety we will be adhering to government guidance and rules in place on the dates of judging and the presentation evenings.
  2. Judges and ATC staff will be wearing face masks if this is still a requirement in July and August and will be carrying hand sanitiser with them at all times.
  3. If you have any concerns regarding access to your garden, as it may not have an external access point, please do give us a call so we can discuss options with you. 
 4.   Presentation Evening and Prizes
  1. Winners of the school category will be announced in July. Whilst we are hoping to have a presentation evening for the schools on Thursday 8 July 2021, this will be confirmed nearer the time and depends on COVID-19 guidance from the government. Should we be unable to hold the presentation evening we will liaise with each school to bring in the prizes and inform the winners.
  2. Winners in the residents and in the organisations/business category will be announced at the presentation evening on 16 September 2021. The date, times and venue of the presentation evening will be confirmed to each entrant in August. If any winning entrants are not able to come to the presentation evening, they will be sent a letter informing them of their winnings within the week after the presentation evening. Pending COVID-19 government guidelines we may have to hold the event as a virtual one in 2021.

Today, March the 23rd, marks the one-year anniversary of the start of the first national lockdown. Since then, we’ve had to learn so many changes in our behaviours and learn to do without many of the things we previously took for granted. Today is a Day of Reflection and I would like to reflect in two ways. Firstly, for those who have suffered physical or mental illness or lost loved ones to the virus – you have my deepest sympathy.

Secondly, to those who have stepped up to help our community as key workers or one of the millions of volunteers who have helped us out – you have my very grateful thanks on behalf of the whole town.

There is now growing optimism, but we must still take care as the battle isn’t yet fully won, but I know as a town we will continue to work together, pull together and help each other out. Thank you all.

Recognition from Alzheimer’s Society for Dementia Friendly work

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Wed, 03/03/2021 - 15:44

We have received a “Working to become a Dementia Friendly Community” accreditation from the Alzheimer’s Society for a fifth consecutive year.

To receive this accreditation, we were assessed on our dementia work within the community, which is led by our Dementia Champion and Communities Officer, Benedicta Lasoye.

The work we do continues to help people to connect with a condition that is likely to impact us all in our lifetime – personally or by association. Reducing the stigma associated with dementia has always been a driving force within their work, and one conversation at a time, this is happening in Aylesbury town.

Having delivered over 95 sessions and leading to the creation of more than 2,500 Dementia Friends since 2016, the we have received support and collaborated with local organisations and groups including Waterside Theatre, Skipton Building Society, Aylesbury Market Traders, Aylesbury Library, Metro Bank, Bucks Museum, Friars Square and Hale Leys retail management, Thames Valley Police (Aylesbury), Vale of Aylesbury Housing and Aylesbury Waitrose.

By delivering information sessions to younger people in Aylesbury schools and colleges, we have created ‘new teachers’ and advocates of the Dementia Friends initiative. A Dementia Friend learns about what it’s like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action.

@media only screen and (max-width:1024px) {.fusion-title.fusion-title-1{margin-top:0px!important;margin-bottom:10px!important;}}The purpose of these sessions are to share five key messages to help people understand dementia better. These are:

1) Dementia is not a natural part of ageing.

2) Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain.

3) Dementia is not just about losing your memory

4) It is possible to live well with dementia

5) There is more to the person than dementia

The Town Council also support groups and businesses who want to know how they can make positive changes to a person with dementia and the people who care for them – from changing opening hours, to making signage clearer all of these small actions make a huge difference.

The Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr Mike Smith, said: “Benedicta has been amazing in delivering our Dementia Friends sessions. She works tirelessly to connect with everyone she meets, whether she knows them or not, which has led to the successes we have today. As Town Mayor, along with all the Town Councillors, the Town Clerk and officers we have nothing but pride for her dedication and she has proved to be a great asset to our community work.”
