26 Feb 2018 - Dementia Awareness Session

It is rare not to know someone affected by dementia but we often struggle to understand it and know how best to support people living with it.

You are invited to Buckland Reading Room at 7.45pm on Monday 26th February 2018 when Chime Carlin from Alzheimer’s UK will be running a 1 hour awareness session and Rebecca Choy from Broome Park Nursing home will also be available to answer questions.

The session will address:
What is dementia?    How are people affected?   How can I make a difference?
Where can I go for specialist information?

Whilst it is an open session it would be helpful if you are able to send an email to help the team coordinating the session understand likely numbers.

02 Mar 2018 - St Catherine's Hospice Firewalk - Crawley

Brave the fire for St Catherine’s Hospice Firewalk, see poster below and details below poster.

St Catherine’s Hospice is thrilled to announce the launch of their brand new Firewalk!  Walk the path of embers and extinguish all fear in support of St Catherine’s.

On Friday 2 March St Catherine’s Hospice will be heating up Crawley High Street and they would love you to join them for the ultimate test of bravery to raise funds for local terminally ill people and their family and friends.  Taking place in Crawley’s historic High Street, the thrilling Firewalk is the first of its kind for the local hospice but it’s not for the faint hearted!

Held in partnership with UK Firewalk, no previous experience is needed as UK Firewalk’s expert staff will share the secrets of successful firewalking with everyone who takes part before they face the flames.

In order for St Catherine’s Hospice to continue to provide valuable care to their patients they ask that all of their brave-hearted soles raise a minimum sponsorship of £150 per firewalker.  Whilst you douse all fear at the event, they will be on hand to help you stoke the flames of fundraising.

Think you can take the heat?  Then don’t delay, get your space today!  Fire up and register before Thursday 18 January to qualify for an early bird registration of £20.  After 18 January it’s £25 to register.  To take part you’ll also need to raise a minimum of £150 sponsorship.  Registration for the under 18’s brick walk is £10 and brave brick walkers are asked to try and raise £50 each.  Places are limited, so sign up online here today!

19 Mar 2018 - Buckland Annual Parish Meeting

Every English Parish Council is required, by law, to hold an Annual Parish Meeting, on a date that falls between 1st March and 1st June and starting no earlier than 6pm.

An Annual Parish Meeting provides an opportunity for your Parish Council to report on its activities during the year and for residents to ask questions and provide feedback.  A break for light refreshments during the evening provides an opportunity for villagers to socialise and can be relied upon to prompt topical discussion.

Buckland’s 2018 Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Monday 19th March, at 7.45pm in the Reading Room – make a note to keep the evening free and we shall look forward to welcoming you to the meeting.
