Welcome to Spring! 
 
I’m typing this report with blue skies and green fields visible from my office window…a bit of a change from last week’s snow. Only a couple of weeks until the clocks change and then “summer here we come”. 
 
Apologies as we are having to postpone the litter pick AGAIN due to the weather conditions....We will spring into again when Spring decides to appear. 
Thank you to everyone that voluinteered and we will keep you informed. 
 
Please feel free to sign up as a volunteer for future dates. 
 
Simply contact clerk@lavendonpc.org to volunteer. 
 
Thank you for your support.

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. 
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR COMMUNITY? 
 
North Crawley, Little Crawley, Astwood, Hardmead, Clifton Reynes, Newton Blossomville, Cold Brayfield, Moulsoe, Chicheley, Lavendon & Warrington 
 
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.
