lavendon parish council 
here to serve the community 
A resident from Olney has posted on Facebook yesterday that he had received a phone call which said a payment is being made to a "Mr Carlos in South Africa" and to press 1 to cancel the payment or hang up if I want it to go through. Just ignore it and hung up but some people will panic and press 1 which is what they want you to do. PLEASE DON'T PRESS 1. JUST HANG UP! 
Please can you help spread the word especially if you know any elderly residents that are vulnerable and may get caught by this scam. 
Many thanks

Lavendon village entered the above competition again this year.  
Last year we entered the competition after several years of absence and scored 83 out of 100. The Parish Council took on board the constructive comments by the judges last year and addressed the areas in the village that needed improvement.  
This year we scored 92 out of 100 with three out of nine categories scoring maximum marks. 
This is an amazing achievement for the village so thank you to you all that make our village a clean and desirable place to live. We have been awarded a Certificate of Merit by the organisers of the competition. 
The winner in our category was Hedgerley with 98 and Chearsley and Cuddington tied on 97. This year was a high scoring year.  
Can we do better next year? The Parish Council are keen to try. 
You are invited to the Olney Ward Community Forum where your local Neighbourhood Policing Team will be available to discuss any local concerns or issues that you wish to raise as well as talk about crime in the local area. 
It will be on Wednesday 21st August at 7.30pm at The Olney Centre, High Street, Olney, MK46 4ET. 
We'd be delighted to see you there. 
Advance notice of the forthcoming A422 road closure.  
Milton Keynes Council (MKC) will be carrying out significant Highway improvement works along the A422 between Chicheley roundabout and its junction with the A428 at Bromham between 5th August and 18th August. The road should reopen 19th August. The closure will be in place 24hrs a day. The work will be delivered by Ringway, MKC’s Highways Service Provider. 
The works will include: 
• Significant structural and waterproofing to Swans River Bridge, which requires closure across the whole carriageway 
• Highway resurfacing. Some of this work is being completed on behalf of Bedford Borough Council as the resurfacing will be in their Borough. Bedford are funding this part of the works. 
Today marks the start of Neighbourhood Watch Week 2019 where we’ll be celebrating the amazing work our volunteers do in their communities. We’ll be looking at areas where you expect Neighbourhood Watch to operate in and around (burglary) as well as some more unexpected ones (knife violence and social isolation). 
Our message this year is that when it comes to Neighbourhood Watch, there is #MoreThanYouExpect. 
To kick start the week we have today launched Neighbourhood Watch Inspiration, a collection of the most innovative work being undertaken by our volunteers across England and Wales. 
Please see the following which has been shared with us by Brampton Valley Homes. The builder will be drop dropping leaflets to the directly affected properties. 
As you are aware, we are currently waiting a planning decision for the parcel of land that we own adjacent to your property. We have certain obligations regarding the security of our land and as such, we would like to notify you that on Monday 17th June, we will have some fencing and materials delivered to and erected on the land. 
In order to achieve this, we will need to bring a lorry and materials to Castle Road for a very short duration. We expect to arrive approximately around midday and will be present for approximately 1 hour. We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that although this will cause some minor disruption, we still have no intention of using this as permanent construction access, however we are sure you will understand that until planning permission is approved we have no means of alternative access to the site. 
Should you have any queries or concerns, please contact us on the below details. 
Thank you in advance and apologies for any inconvenience. 
Kind regards,
