Chair's Report, December 3rd 2020
Christmas preparations are well underway in Burton Green despite, or perhaps because of the privations caused by HS2 and the pandemic. We hope HS2 will have cleared the junction in time for a tree to erected on the Jubilee Verge at the beginning of December, thanks to the efforts of a group of Hodgetts Lane residents. Burton Green Church of England Academy pupils are designing Christmas cards and one of them will be chosen as this year's Residents' Association card.
Over the past few years we have raised significant amounts for charity with the Santa sleigh evening. This is not possible this year because of covid so we have arranged a food bank collection for Sunday December 13th. Please donate generously; details are in the Bugle below.
The troughs have been planted with some colour to see us through the winter and, looking forward to spring, Councillor Paddy Deeley is liaising with LM and Buckingham Group, contractors for HS2 Ltd, about planting spring bulbs on the verge at the corner of Red Lane and Hob lane, under the newly reprieved oak tree.
The Residents' Association continues to take up issues on behalf of you all. Parking on pavements continues to be a matter of concern and PC Anna Brown is happy to act on any reports. If there is parking which makes it difficult for you to use the pavement, email a photo to her (email@example.com); this is the most direct way to achieve a result. Speeding, as always, remains a key concern; see Councillor Terry Haines' report in this edition. Dianna Deans, Community Engagement Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org) has recently been very proactive in responding to requests or concerns, so please contact her if you have issues concerning HS2 in Burton Green.
A number of people have volunteered to help residents who might need help, with, for example, shopping, so please do get in touch if you need support.
The Residents' Association wishes you all a Happy Christmas and a healthy, happy 2021. Let us hope the recent news about a vaccine is the beginning of the tide turning. Stay safe and we look forward to a time when we can get together again.
Rona Taylor, Chair of Residents' Association
