On Monday 5th February Thames Valley Police will be launching the next phase of the #ProtectYourWorld campaign. This phase aims to inform and engage with young people (8-18) about staying safe online, as well as encouraging parents, carers and responsible adults to engage with their children about their online activity, especially social media and online chats.

We would like to make you aware of a new platform for the community to discuss and identify priorities which we will work together to address. This will be known as a Community Forum. 
 
The purpose of the Community Forum is to bring together, at a local level, the right organisations and members of the public to tackle the top community safety priorities identified through consultation. 
Recycle and Reward Scheme 2018 
 
Lavendon is part of a new initiative to improve recycling. Throughout 2018 we hope to improve what items are put in our pink sacks. Milton Keynes Council is imminently launching a dedicated website to recycling – www.getsorted.co.uk. This will offer advice on what items can be recycled. Did you know that envelopes with clear windows can now be recycled in their entirety? 
 
Over the next year there will information available to remind us of this initiative.

Welcome to what will be the last Parish report for 2017. Hasn’t this year gone quickly! 
 
So, what’s been happening around our village since our last report? 
 
To keep you up to date with the two main planning applications around the village, one off Olney Road by Gladman Land and one to be accessed via The Glebe, both applications were originally refused and both have been appealed. There have also been subsequent re applications for these developments. No decisions have been reached with regards to these applications at the time of writing but we will publish any updates on the website and social media as they happen. 
Is it still summer, or autumn?...Looking out of my office window it looks like we are well into winter although it’s not hurricane Irma so we should at least be thankful for that and our thoughts go out to those affected by that terrible hurricane. 
 
So, what’s been happening around our village of late. 
Lavendon School governing body has two vacancies from the beginning of the new school year following the 2017 summer holidays.
