clip Willow Sculpture Day

May 05, 2015, 11:06:29 AM by BarbaraOsborne

How to create a Willow Sculpture

With Dave Gosling & Tony Davies - local sculptors

Willow structure of the type taught at the workshop ‘Impressive structures can be achieved in a day’ says Dave Gosling.

Dave and Tony will explain the story behind willow weaving and how it lead them into creating these amazing sculptures.

The day’s activity will start with an introduction followed by a talk and demonstration of techniques. Questions will be welcomed. Then everyone will be encouraged to start their sculpture – like riding a bike, the best way is to get into the saddle! They will then circulate around ensuring that everyone is happy and confident with their project. This format has worked really well for them in the past and ensures individual attention as well as a community feeling. The lunch break will take place at an appropriate time and then continue with the sculptures until the end of the day.

This is the perfect opportunity for the absolute beginner to sculpting and willow weaving, or to those who wish to improve their skill and benefit from the inspiration of two amazing professionals in a beautiful setting.

Please bring a pair of secateurs with you.

Price: £85.00 includes all materials (unless otherwise specified) our fabulous Creative Green lunch, drinks, homemade cakes and biscuits (the eggs are kindly contributed by the resident hens at Clue Hill Farm and honey from our bees).

thumbup Call for Community First Responders

July 18, 2016, 06:46:41 PM by Tim Andrew
Posted on behalf of Charlotte:

South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust has long subscribed to the fact that the quicker we can have a suitably trained person, with the appropriate equipment; to a member of the public during a life threatening emergency, the better the chance of survival and making a good recovery.
 
A few years ago, the charity division, “Community Responders”, was launched. This initiative depends on members of the community volunteering within their local area to respond to emergencies, to give lifesaving treatment, prior to the ambulance arriving.
 
Volunteers are given full training at one of our training Centre’s, explaining how to recognize and treat many life threatening medical emergencies. This ranges from cardiac arrest to strokes in the elderly down to infants, to name but a few of the situations volunteers may face.
 
On successful completion of the course, the newly appointed Community First Responders (CFRs) are supplied with a response kit, including an Automated External Defibrillator, breathing equipment and a mobile phone. The volunteer responders can then respond to an emergency in their local community and tend to the needs of the most vulnerable, whilst an ambulance is on route.

Due to the close proximity of the volunteer responder to the emergency, they are very often first on scene and their actions can directly affect the outcome of the patient, this will have an impact on the lives of their family and friends within your community.
 
Having suffered my first ever Anaphylaxis allergic reaction (having had no prior reaction to the allergen before!) in the depths of rural Wales, a rapid response was vital in treating me, and ultimately, saving my life. Having volunteers trained in the role of a Community First Responder will surely aid the recovery of many anaphylactic sufferers, like myself, due to their quick arrive at scene, and initial treatment they can provide, with the equipment they carry, until the arrival of the ambulance.
I have always greatly admired those who work on the Front Line for the Ambulance Service, and aspire to become a Paramedic myself. Volunteering for South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) is such a fulfilling opportunity, and I would encourage anyone who also feels this way, to enquire about becoming a Community First Responder. SCAS are always looking for volunteers to be a part of this lifesaving scheme to help within their local community. If you would like to find out more, then visit our website http://www.scas.nhs.uk/get-involved/community-first-responders/
Or get in touch by email cfr@scas.nhs.uk or derek.flint@scas.nhs.uk or Telephone 07768635501

xx Family History help required please

January 13, 2016, 07:32:42 PM by Dawn
Hello,
My name is Dawn and my grandma was a Hartwell descended from James Hartwell who married Sarah Hubbocks in Brill, daughter of Robert Hubbocks and his wife Ann Farey. The Hubbocks' seem to have been an old Brill family and I've traced Robert Hubbocks family line back to the 17th Century although I've not found any info about his wife at all other than their marriage in Grendon Underwood. James Hartwell died in 1844 in Brill . Jack Hartwell of Hartwells Barn and the Pheasant is connected as is George Hartwell who was landlord of the Swan as well as being a letter carrier/ postman. My descent is James Hartwell and Sarah Hubbocks - Thomas Hartwell and Elizabeth Colson (daughter of Henry Colson and Lucy Prior) -  Sidney Charles Hartwell and Drusilla Chell (although by then the family had moved into Staffordshire, Leicestershire and  Derbyshire more or less  following the pits). My Grandma Elsie Annie Hartwell was their daughter and she  married Albert Rayner in 1912. I live in Doncaster so it's a bit of a trek for me to get to Buckinghamshire!
What I'm hoping is that people might have old pictures that they'd be happy to share  please (for my own personal use only) of Brill and Oakley and also perhaps of the Swan, the Pheasant and Hartwells Barn . The family lived at various times on the Common and Windmill Street. Also if anyone knows anything of the Hartwells, the Colsons, the Hubbocks' and perhaps even the Fareys I'd love to hear.
I don't want my family history to be just a list of names and dates so I do hope someone can help. Thank you and sorry this is such a long post!
Dawn
