Alert, Caution, Attention, Glossy  There has been a recent series of incidents whereby fraudsters either phone or attend the home address of elderly members of the public, claiming to be police officers.

The fake officer/s will claim that they are investigating a fraud which they believe the elderly person to be a victim of. The fake officer/s will then request the bank cards and personal identification numbers (PIN) of the victim and claim these are needed for investigation purposes. If the first contact was made by a phone call, the fake officer/s will tell the victim that someone will be over to collect the evidence. In one case the victim was instructed to attend their local bank and withdraw all of the money from their account. The suspect was left alone in the victim’s house whilst the victim carried out the instructions.
Protect Yourself

  • Before letting anyone into your home who claims to be from any law enforcement agency, ask to see their identity card and check it by calling 101.
  • Ask if they can attend at a pre-arranged time when a family member or friend can also be present.
  • If you receive a phone call from a police officer,  ask for their name and force and tell them you will call them back. Wait a few minutes and then use 101 to call them back through their force’s switchboard and verify their identity.
  • The Police will never ask for your PIN or passwords. Do not give this information to anyone.
  • The Police will never request that you withdraw/transfer any money to them.

If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it online http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or by telephone 0300 123 2040.

Some of the Year 10 students at Charters School, Sunningdale, near Ascot, were recently lucky enough to spend the afternoon with a variety of staff from Eli Lily exploring how mathematics is used to support the decisions that are made about drug production (November 2015).

The students attended a lecture on medical statistics followed by workshops where they simulated an asthma drug trial and explored how statistics is used to identify correlation between a drug and its success as applied to Alzheimer’s disease. This particular branch of mathematics is not met until the second year of A level and so provided a real challenge to the students. The students asked insightful questions and provided constructive feedback to the team who are currently developing the workshops.

Mrs Kate Hill, Director of STEM, said “It was a very successful afternoon which has given the students some ideas of how mathematics is used beyond engineering and finance.”

Daniella Van Rooyen said “I hadn’t thought about using my mathematics in the medical field. It was great fun.”

Jack Corles said “It was good to see mathematics being applied to real world situations.”

Pictured: Ruth Timbrell Read and the New Chavey Down War Memorial (WWII)

After thirteen years of campaigning by local historian - Ruth Timbrell, Adrian Hoare, Richard Hyslop and the Chavey Down War Memorial Committee, war memorials recording the Chavey Down men who gave their lives in each of WWI (14 men) and World War II (7 men), on the wall of St.Martin's Church, were unveiled on November 21st 2015. 

Reverend Simon Baynes, former vicar of Winkfield and Cranbourne, returned to  lead a service of dedication before the unveiling. Pupils from Ranelagh School made up the choir. Reverend Baynes stressed the need for Christians to work for peace and led prayers for the servicemen, especially those now on active service.  There were also readings by Robyn Randall and Barbara Knight, while 'In Flanders Fields' was read by children from St.Martin's Explorers. Prayers were also led by former Vicar, Rev. Catherine Blundell and Mary Knight. The service concluded with 'I Vow to Thee, My Country' and the National Anthem. 

The congregation then gathered on the  lawn in front of  the Church. The memorials (by Lamb & Company), up to this point covered by a Union Flag which, until recently flew from a Royal Navy ship and loaned by the Datchet Royal British Legion, were unveiled  by HM Lord Lieutenant of the Royal County of Berkshire, Mr James Puxley, after which Ruth Timbrell read out all the names and ages of those commemorated on the memorials. Wreaths were then laid at the war memorials, by Mr James Puxley,  Deputy Mayor of Bracknell Forest - Cllr Tony Virgo,  Adam Afriyie MP, Cranbourne & Winkfield Royal British Legion - Fred Cox and Violet Jones (Women's Section), Glenna Platt (on behalf of the World War I fallen from Chavey Down), Rosie Antink on behalf of the World War II fallen, and Winkfield Parish Council Chairman  - Cllr Stuart Tarrant. 

Roger Fletcher then read 'They Shall Not Grow Old and, after the bugler,( from the Medical Army Corps Camberley)  payed the 'Last Post'  and Reveille, Florence Brockman represented youth  and pledged to work anew in  support of the wartime generations and all those in conflicts since.

A reception was then held in the Hall, with wine supplied by the Winkfield May Day Fair and canapes donated.

A commemorative booklet has been written by Jackie Mayes. It tells the stories of the men listed on the WWI memorial . Copies are on sale (£3)

There is a well-documented shortage of engineers in the UK and currently this sector is only 6% female! With this in mind, VEX Robotics and the National Grid have formulated the Girls into STEM program. Jonathan Richardson, Education and Skills Specialist at National Grid, said, “ As well as encouraging female students to consider careers in STEM areas, involvement with VEX Robotics equips participants with the key transferable skills that all industry is looking for – Communication, Team Work, Time Management and Project Management.”

Charters School is a grant recipient and have received everything needed to enter a team and compete in this year’s VEX Robotics Competition – Nothing But Net. This includes a Robotics Super Kit and programming software – in total the grant is worth over £1000. The girls have already competed against hundreds of national schools and managed to impress the judges with their exciting and creative submission – their dream is to gain a place at the National finals March 2016 at the Big Bang Fair.

Dr Gaynor Bradley, Head of Science said, “I am so proud of the girls for taking part in the initiative and pulling together their winning entry. The team are now busy building and programming the robot, putting together a website and also planning a fundraising campaign to purchase new components for the robot. If any member of the public would like to support our girls, please contact Charters School and ask for me!”

Royal Borough Signs New Contract to Dispose of Rubbish

A contract which will see the end of residents’ waste going to landfill has been agreed by the council. 

Waste not recycled through the borough’s kerbside collection scheme will now be transformed into renewable energy at Viridor’s energy recovery facility at Ardley, Bicester in Oxfordshire. 

The new contract ensures the annual 36,000 tonnes of non-recycled waste will be redirected away from landfill in a partnership that brings environmental and financial benefits for the residents of the Royal Borough. 

The contract, which starts on Thursday 26 November, will bring savings of up to £500,000 each year for the borough over the 15-year contract with the possibility of two five-year extensions. 

Cllr Carwyn Cox, cabinet member for environmental services, said: “We are delighted we have made the move away from putting our non-recycled rubbish into expensive and harmful landfill.

On Monday 9th November, boys from Papplewick School, Ascot, visited Fishbourne Roman Palace near Chichester in West Sussex.  This is the site of an excavated Roman Palace, with remains of incredible mosaic floors, ruins of the Palace's baths and beautiful gardens.

The boys were treated to a day full of activities, including military manoeuvres, writing on wax boards and playing Roman board games.

Papplewick headmaster Tom Bunbury said: “The day was a fantastic hands-on experience for the boys, who thoroughly enjoyed their visit, taking their knowledge from the classroom into practical reality and really getting a feel for Roman life.”

Local GPs, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, opticians and other health workers are right behind a national campaign launched today  (November 16-22) to encourage everyone to take better care of their own health.

Windsor, Ascot and Maidenhead Clinical Commissioning Group (WAM CCG) is using the national week-long “Self-Care for Life” campaign to remind local residents of the many fast and easy ways they can help themselves to good health – no GP appointment necessary.

Posters launched

WAM CCG is using the week to launch new information posters* to go on display at key community points around the borough.  “The posters are one way we have to remind our patients we want them to keep well and look after themselves and to offer practical information on what they can do and where they can go when it’s a minor illness or ailment they don’t need us to treat, or how they can monitor and manage a lifelong condition, like diabetes” said Windsor GP and chair of WAM CCG, Dr Adrian Hayter.

Use GP time wisely

As well as helping individuals and their families, self-care supports whole communities by encouraging them to use health services more effectively.  Said Dr Hayter: “GPs and Nurses  are already over-stretched and we recognise that appointments can be hard to book. We want to make sure that appointments are there for those people who need them and that it makes sense sometimes for some people to access a wide range of help themselves or through other services such as local Pharmacies. If people are unsure where to get help then 111 is available to help them make that decision.”

 People can help make sure GP slots are used wisely by asking themselves if instead they could:

  • Go to the local chemist and ask the pharmacist for advice
  • Ask for an appointment with the surgery nurse rather than a GP
  • Ask for a nurse or GP to offer advice over the phone

Pictured: Papplewick’s Bibliomaniacs with Jonathan Cooper, Director of Studies at Papplewick, at Eton College Library.

On Tuesday, November 4th, the Bibliomaniacs from Papplewick School, Ascot, visited Eton College Library. Dr Coane, the Assistant Librarian there, showed them a collection of British, German and Chinese maps and atlases dating from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, as well as Eton’s collection of ancient charters.

Papplewick’s Bibliomaniacs are the youngest antiquarian booksellers in the world. The boys, aged between ten and thirteen, meet every Thursday to discuss recent book sales, discover more about the history of literature, books and printing and produce catalogues of books for sale.

On their visit to Eton College, they saw many interesting incunabula (books published before 1501) in an exhibition about the Venetian printer Aldus Manutius, probably the most famous printer in the 15th century apart from Gutenberg. However, the highlight was being able to view Eton’s copy of the Gutenberg Bible itself with its illumination in the Erfurt style and its marvellous contemporary binding.

Headmaster Tom Bunbury said: “Our Bibliomaniacs have become so skilled that the master-in-charge, Jonathan Cooper, formerly of Sotheby’s book department, now only has to provide chocolate to power inspiration!”

Money raised through book sales has allowed the boys to sponsor three quarters of an acre of forest owned by the Woodland Trust at Bisham Wood, near Maidenhead. They have visited the British Library, the Bodleian Library, Henry Sotheran, the oldest secondhand bookshop in the world, Sotheby’s, Winchester Fellows’ Library, Jarndyce bookshop and even travelled to New York City, where they learnt and worked with the staff of Arader Galleries.

Papplewick’s Bibliomaniacs have built their own website www.bibliomaniacs.co.uk, where their latest blogs can be viewed.

 The Marist Remembers | On Wednesday 11 November, girls at The Marist Senior School, Sunninghill, marked Remembrance Day.  The girls remembered the brave men and women who fought for their country to secure freedom for future generations.  The occasion is always a sombre time of reflection in the school calendar.

Students and staff gathered in the Senior School Main Hall, where Year 11 carried out the Memorial Service.  This year, students and staff learnt about the work carried out within The Poppy Factor, which helps manufacture poppies and other merchandise sold by The Royal British legion, as part of their Poppy Appeal.  The Poppy Factory is the country’s leading employment charity for veterans with disabilities or impairments and the first establishment to manufacture the British poppy.  The service ended with the moving poem “Why Do I wear A Poppy” by Anne Starr.

At 11 o’clock, commemorating the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the ‘two minute silence’ was observed by all students and staff.  Prayers were also said for those who lost their lives in battle during World War 1, World War 2 and more recent conflicts.  The silence concluded with the Last Post, beautifully performed on the trumpet by Year 10 student, Rebecca Lyes.

Work starts on Berystede roundabout

Residents will have an easier journey thanks to a roundabout being installed at the junction of A330 Devenish Road / Brockenhurst Road with Bagshot Road, Ascot.

The new roundabout, which is being built following local concerns, aims to:

  • make a safer access for vehicles emerging from Bagshot Road and Sunninghill High Street
  • create a safer road crossing for residents, particularly pupils of schools in the area including Charters School. A zebra crossing is being installed for easy access for pedestrians.
  • slow traffic speeds, further making the road safe.

The scheme, expected to be completed by spring, will cost in the region of £350,000, funded by a combination of S106 developer contributions and grant funding.

Traffic lights are in place and are being manually operated during peak times.

The Royal Borough has committed to housing 10 Syrian refugee families over the next five years.

Several million people have been displaced due to the ongoing conflict in Syria and the government has pledged support to rehouse 20,000 of the most vulnerable in the UK.

Following discussions with Maidenhead’s MP Theresa May, the Home Secretary, the council will now look to house 10 families including two in the coming months. Following the arrival of the first families the scheme will be reviewed.

Cllr David Burbage, council leader, said: “The war in Syria has displaced hundreds of thousands of ordinary people from all walks of life, who have become homeless refugees due to the conflict in their country. Our concern is to assist those genuine refugees from war, not economic migrants.

Shoeboxes have been filled with goodies by boys from Papplewick School for the Operation Christmas Child appeal, organised by charity Samaritan’s Purse.

This year's appeal got off to an emotional start when the boys at Papplewick watched a video from an African school. They saw the joy and heard the screams from a group of boys when they were opening their boxes. Lego, toy cars, pens, balls, cuddly toys, puzzles, hats, socks, soap and games were all popular items put in this year's boxes.

Although Papplewick is a boy's school, several of the pupils packed boxes for girls, perhaps with a bit of help from a sister or two. Just over 80 boxes were collected with a record of four boxes donated by one generous family.

The boys really hope that their shoeboxes will generate lots of excitement this Christmas. They have been watching the stories about the Syrian refugees on BBC Newsround and hope that their boxes will be sent to some of these children.

Operation Christmas Child is the world’s largest children’s Christmas project.  Samaritan’s Purse has been sending gift-filled shoeboxes around the world since 1990, to over 94 million underprivileged children. The appeal has grown to be the largest Christmas shoebox appeal in the UK.

The Northern Parishes/  Winkfield Arts Week, which included a huge range of free events - everything from jewellery and calligraphy worlshops to recitals and gigs,  in the three northern parishes of Winkfield, Warfield and Binfield, all through half term, offered an amazing series of creative experiences! Notable amongst these was the exhibition of  art and craft at the Brownlow Hall. There were paintings by local bodies and groups such as the U3A and the Ascot Art Group, as well as sculpture and craft (everything from cafetiere warmers to quilts). Overhanging all the exhibits in the main hall was a giant caterpillar - the result of a community project, with contributors supplying the caterpillar's segments. Organiser, Jonathan Greenyer explained that the segments comprised nylon rod supports over which jesso-  treated muslin was stretched and then painted on one side. The inspiration for the caterpillar comes from Ai Weiwei's giant dragon at Alcatraz

Prizes for the best exhibits were awarded by Lorraine Zutshi of Bracknell & Wokingham College, at the Brownlow Hall, on Saturday October 31st.

Winner for the best upcycling work was Geoff Paxton (pictured below with his upcycled bird). Pauline Goodwin won 3rd prize in the 2D category for her superb portrait (pictured below) ; second prize went to Karen for her atmospheric landscape and the winner in the 2D category was  Jane Pilcher for her unique Autumn Flowers.

The 3D category was won for a beautiful, ' multiple jackets' wall hanging. Karen Rumens was awarded 3rd prize for her sculpture of a head.

A team of Under 8 boys at Papplewick Schooll in Ascot tore through their mothers in this year's fixture, winning by a fantastic 14 goals to 8.

The sun came out for the mums and their boys as they were split into three teams for the round robin tournament, which ensured that each boy matched up against his mum for at least one game.

The result was some feisty, fun, determined and often skilful football. The mums began the stronger with a few early goals, but the boys fought back well, eventually outscoring the mums by 14 to 8 after a totting up of all the goals scored.

Headmaster Tom Bunbury said: “A huge thanks goes out to all the mums who made the day and indeed made their son's day. Many thanks to John Nutter, our football coach, for organising another hugely enjoyable occasion for the Under 8 boys and their mums. It was perhaps the pre-match drinks with Mr. and Mrs. Bunbury that proved fatal for the mothers this year!”

Pictured:  The Swimming Pool at Papplewick 

On Friday 16th October, the swimming pool at Papplewick School, Ascot, was host to a diving event which raised almost £5,000 in aid of the charity Deptherapy. 

Deptherapy runs specially adapted scuba-diving programmes for seriously injured UK armed service people.  According to the charity the therapy is especially beneficial to those suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and has provided startling results.

The event, known as the Vodafone Atlantis Challenge, is an enjoyable corporate challenge based on underwater team and communication. It challenges both teams and individuals, taking them out of their comfort zone. Vodafone’s challenge was to complete an underwater puzzle.


Residents Invited to Have Their Say on Council Services

 Residents who receive the postal survey are asked to consider a wide range of key services such as waste and recycling collections, libraries, highway maintenance, traffic management and community safety, and give their views about the standard and quality and where they think improvements are needed.

Cllr David Burbage, council leader, said he hoped those who received a questionnaire would take part.

 He said: “We are continually striving to make sure the borough is the best it can be and that the council is serving residents in the way that they want.
