Today we commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day.
VJ Day marks the surrender of Japan and the end of Second World War. It is a fitting time for us all to pause and say thank you to all those who fought in the Fourteenth Army and were often referred to as The Forgotten Army.
At 11:00 a.m. the two minutes silence will be observed led from The Memorial Arboretum.
Let us take that time to remember those who served and their families.
For those of you who want to know more about what the background to VJ reproduced below is an extract from the official website:
‘Fighting in the Asia-Pacific took place from Hawaii to North East India. Britain and the Commonwealth’s principle fighting force, the Fourteenth Army, was one of the most diverse in history – more than 40 languages were spoken, and all the world’s major religions represented.
The descendants of many of the Commonwealth veterans of that army are today part of multicultural communities around the world, a lasting legacy to the success and comradeship of those who fought in the Asia-Pacific.
Veterans of the Far East campaign will be at the heart of the commemorations as the nation thanks them for their service and sacrifice.
Events will also pay tribute to the tens of thousands of service personnel from across the UK and the Commonwealth who fought and died in the war against Japan, including all those who were held as prisoners of war by the Japanese.’

To-day is the last full delivery programme for our Community Kindness kits. We have said thank you to so many of you over the weeks and your support has been appreciated by everyone involved.

We thought that to-day we would share with you just a few quotes from the thank you cards we have received:

''I really appreciate all of your help and kindness. Many thanks to everyone involved.'

'Thanks to the community for all the donations and the volunteers for delivering them with a smile and chat. It's made such a difference at this difficult time...'

And to the volunteers who have delivered throughout the 21 weeks - thank you and enjoy your summer!

Thames Valley Police Victims First Update

Welcome to an update about Victims First and our services to support victims of crime in the Thames Valley.

Victims First has received over 5,000 referrals into the service since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic in April with many of those referred requiring further support from our commissioned services. Throughout the pandemic we and our partner services have been able to continue to support victims by offering remote support such as telephone, video call and text support. We are pleased that as lockdown restrictions ease some services are now looking at ways they can offer face to face support to victims where possible.

Message From Pinewood

Due to the current environment we all find ourselves in, we will not be holding outdoor screenings for the community this year. We were hoping to show the new Bond film ‘No Time to Die’, but it hasn’t even been released yet, so perhaps a contender for our film event next year.

In lieu of a film night, we are delighted to invite you to a virtual community quiz night – a free family friendly event being held on Wednesday 19 August at 7.30pm. The quiz will be run by Alan Conley and Stuart Holdham – two TV freelancers who both work on one of the nation’s favourite TV shows, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. Alan is the studio floor manager and Stu is the warm up artist for the audience. There will be 8 rounds which will include TV and Film Trivia, a Celebrity Round, Famous Baby Round and a Pinewood Studios Round.

The quiz will take place via Zoom and we are limited to 120 registrations to join the meeting, but not 120 people. It’s 1 registration per household, but how many you have in your team is totally up to you! There will be prizes, I’m just unsure exactly what yet!

You will be able to register for a space from tomorrow morning at 9am by following (or copying and pasting) this link:

pinewoodcommunityquiz.eventbrite.co.uk

Looking forward to seeing you via Zoom in August – we think you’re going to have a lot of fun!

Best wishes,
Kathryn

Charges for council car parking to resume on 1 August 2020

Buckinghamshire Council is reminding residents that parking charges are being reintroduced this weekend. From Saturday 1 August, everyone parking in a council car park or in a parking bay on the road, will be required to pay the required charge. The exceptions are blue badge holders, who may continue to park in designated bays.
A range of health and safety measures in our car parks has been put in place to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, including marking out social distancing areas around ticket machines, and advisory signage. There will be an enhanced cleaning regime for ticket machines, lift buttons and other surfaces in high footfall areas.
Buckinghamshire Council has introduced the option for ticketless pay and display in more car parks across the county via RingGo; and payment of parking fees using this contactless option is recommended. To set up an account either go to your App store or the RingGo website - https://myringgo.co.uk/apps - follow the simple instructions and you are ready to go!
David Martin, Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet Member for Logistics, said:
“The reintroduction of parking charges is a necessary part of the effective traffic management of our town centres as traffic levels continue to build. While it is still necessary to follow government guidance on social distancing and wearing face coverings in certain situations, we have been encouraged by the significant increase in footfall in our town centres in recent weeks.”
In recent months, the reduction in numbers of vehicles on the roads has seen measurable improvements in air quality, particularly in urban areas. To support residents who want to continue to cycle, additional secure bicycle parking is being provided at many locations and railway stations. There are also plans to introduce cycle lanes, where this is feasible, to separate cyclists from other road users.


Parking remains free until Saturday 1 August.

Important Information Community Kindness Donations

Dear Residents

From Friday 31st July we are scaling back the delivery of the Community Kindness Kits.

Deliveries will continue to be made to families with children until schools return in September. We have made a number of successful funding requests which covered the delivery of cleaning packs to all recipients a few weeks ago and will cover the parcels for August.

As a consequence, we are also closing our collection point at the Jubilee Pavilion, Iver.

Today (Wednesday) is the last day we will be accepting donations of food at the Jubilee Pavilion and over the next week we will be beginning the process of withdrawing the collection boxes for local shops.

This is the 21st week of deliveries and we have been able to continue for this long due to the on-going support of the community and donations secured from organisations. Thank you all for all your donations over the last 5 months.

COVID19 Response - Hotline Service Closing

Dear Residents

As our community begins to emerge from the coronavirus crisis, calls to the Hotline have declined significantly and for some time requests for support have been reduced to very low levels. We have therefore taken the decision to close the Hotline number down effective from July 31st .This date coincides with changes in Government guidance which includes pausing of shielding for all in the community from August 1st.

Our thanks to Iver Heath Residents Association, Richings Park Residents Association and Iver Village Residents Association who sprang into action in helping us recruit volunteers to hand deliver Hotline information leaflets door-to-door back in March.

We are extremely grateful to the 142 residents who registered as volunteers with the Hotline to help us support the vulnerable in our community during the height of the C19-crisis.

Our thanks also to the back-office team of call handlers and case workers: Residents Caron & Ciaran Beary, Graeme & Wendy Jenner, Ged Weston, Louise Jones, Cllr Ann Mayling, Cllr Carol Gibson and to Cllr Wendy Matthews who liaised with Bucks Adult Care to help particularly vulnerable people receive additional support.

Finally, special thanks to Graham Young and Olivia Mahon of the Ivers Good Neighbour scheme for their fantastic support in setting up and managing the help line and its IT logistics and in securing funding to run it.

For those of you who need ongoing assistance with transport to medical appointments etc., please contact The Ivers Good Neighbour Scheme. To register with the Good Neighbours scheme or to volunteer as a driver please call 01753 358101 or email [email protected]

News From Iver Village Residents Association

Emotions, Children and You Support Pack

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are pleased to advise you that Iver Village Residents Association has produced a support pack for Parents called 'Emotions, Children and You'.

This pack is easy to follow and is based on key research into how children can be helped to explain and express their emotions.
The pack will provide

• A set of cards called ZONES; The cards are widely used in primary schools and by support staff working with children such as speech and language therapists. The cards describe different emotional states and suggestions about how to help children find ways to moderate and adjust when they feel withdrawn or actively distressed and upset. The aim is to support emotional self-regulation.

• An illustrated story book, “Bot Bot the Robot finds his feelings”, created by Owl Therapy which features a robot to explore different emotions and supports these various feeling states as part of normal emotional life.

• Another illustrated book, “Bot Bot: Corona virus confusion story”, which looks at the worries that children may have about Covid 19 and about how parents and children can share this.
The pack is completely free and is available to you to collect, take home, use and keep.

You can pick your pack up from the following places over the next few weeks;

- Iver Parish Council Office Front Desk, Monday to Friday, 10am -2pm

- The Community Libraries in Iver Village and Iver Heath (when they re-open)

- We will also distribute to Parents in local parks and in clubs whenever we can

- You are also welcome to e-mail [email protected] to arrange a collection. We would encourage parents who have links on social media to share this information and maybe even agree to pick up copies of the pack for others!

Please do take advantage of this useful and informative pack.
Our Best wishes,

Iver Village Residents Association

Hi IPC, any chance you can remove this bit of the new fence over Iver heath fields please. As you can see from the track this was used to access the stream so that dogs could have a drink and wash their paws after walking. Many thanks
Hi IPC. There has been quite a nasty accident along Church Road, and the level of speeding along the road is becoming increasingly dangerous. Have looked at the BCC website and seen you can request a 7 day speed survey. Are you able to assist with this please. Vehicles are hammering down the A412 from slough or off the denham roundabout and not slowing down to 30mph along Church Road. The 30 mph signs are all pretty much obscured by bushes and trees. Also is there anything you can do from extra signage or flashing speed light up sign like along Bangors Road. Appreciate schools have broken up for summer, but this road is becoming increasingly dangerous and there are many school bus drop off points in the vicinity Many thanks
