here to serve the community 
 
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,

So over the last couple of days there have been a couple of thefts from the village. 
 
An annoying petty crime with the theft of a water butt from the cemetary and a more significant loss of a digger from the stoneyard housing development on Bedford Road. 
 
If anyone has any information about either of these incidents please report them directly to the police or via clerk@lavendonpc.org 
 
Please be vigilant around the village and look out for your neighbours....let's keep Lavendon safe. 
Please be advised that the following roads will be closed for several hours on the following dates in order to allow the Council to carry out resurfacing programme works within the carriageway. You can view the affected lengths of road and any diversion routes by clicking on the links provided.

One of our councillors, Martino Ginepro, has put forward a petition to the UK Government and the Environment Secretary to tackle the issue of littering nationwide. In our own small way we are trying to keep on top of the littering and dog fouling issues that we have around the village but it would be great if we could get behind this petition and help towards solving this ever growing problem.
