Planning - Cricket Field – unfortunately, there is still nothing further to report on the cricket pitch planning application.

Community Matters Foodbank, Trinity Church, Lane End – our next monthly delivery is on Thursday 18th July.  Please leave donations in the church or church porch on the Wednesday before or by 10 a.m. on the Thursday.  The latest message from Barbara Ewing and Lucy Smith (Community Matters organisers): “Over the last 3 days we have given out food (and for some, much needed cash and listening ears) to 22 Lane End families. Thank you all again for the absolutely wonderful donations of food and toiletries. We contributed to the cost of a mattress for one who since a long operation was sleeping in a chair since his current mattress had became unusable and painful.  We also paid for lunches for a young nursery child who was not eligible for free meals but will be able to receive this in September.  Your generosity is so appreciated”.

David Lane’s funeral, held at Amersham Crematorium on Monday 17th June, was extremely well attended with many going on to the Compleat Angler to celebrate his life.  Sue thanks you all for the many kind messages, cards and letters that she has received.
