Buckinghamshire’s Local Mental Health Awareness Week

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Wed, 06/22/2022 - 11:54

Champion the Change, the campaign run by Bucks Mind and Buckinghamshire Council that aims to transform attitudes to mental health to help end stigma, will be a hosting a week-long awareness event from 27 June to 3 July.

The event, called Bucks Big Chat, will focus on ‘Connecting to the Community’ to reduce feelings of loneliness and social isolation surrounding low mental health and its associated stigma and discrimination.

The main activity will highlight the sport and movement providers across Bucks that share an interest in mental wellbeing. Champion the Change is creating a map to show where people can find local sports groups that consider the emotional wellbeing of participants.

The map will show instructors and organisations that consider participants emotional wellbeing, including those who have had trained in mental health awareness for sport and physical activity.

The aim is to help people feel more confident in accessing community activities, improve their mental wellbeing through physical activity, build friendships and connect them to their community through enjoyable activities.

Paul Irwin, Champion the Change Volunteer and Deputy Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Sport and Councillor for Stone and Waddesdon Division, says: “I have experienced low mental health for most of my life, and at times I do feel isolated and overwhelmed. I have always found being involved with sport, whether playing or watching, is a fantastic way to help me feel less lonely. Being part of a club like Waddesdon Cricket Club is awesome, the guys have always been there for me, and I am for them; we are family. If you have poor mental health and feel alone, find a club like Waddesdon and pop along, there is always someone to chat to and share some banter, it makes you feel like you belong and playing gets your positive mind going.”

Isobel Shea, Champion the Change Hub Coordinator says: “We know that physical activity can benefit our wellbeing and improve mental health, but we also know that mental health stigma and discrimination can be a barrier for people to join a sports or activity club. We hope that by highlighting the sports clubs in Bucks that prioritise the wellbeing of it’s members we will encourage more people to take that first step and make contact with a local club in their community.”

Marie Biswell from Hand Talking hosted a quiet space with sensory toys and a calm space if spectators needed some time out from the event.

The Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr Tim Dixon, said: “I am so glad the Soapbox Derby made a triumphant return to Aylesbury. It was great to see so many teams competing to be the fastest kart in Whitehill Park. There were lots of interesting designs from some very creative individuals producing some awesome self-propelled push karts. If you haven’t seen this event before, make sure you are at the one in 2023.

“It was great to see the support from community groups at the event. They provided a great advert to other organisations that might want to showcase themselves at Town Council events.”

Aylesbury CTC (Cycling Tourist Club)

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Mon, 06/13/2022 - 14:58

Aylesbury is a great place to cycle, surrounded by lovely countryside within easy reach. There are numerous cycle paths in and around the town centre and on new housing developments. These will eventually take you round a green corridor planned to encircle Aylesbury as part of the Garden Town plan. Also there is the excellent Greenway cycle route which provides a safe traffic free route from Aylesbury to Waddesdon Manor.

Cycling is an excellent way to exercise, it is low stress on joints and can be as easy or demanding as you want to make it. There are also a wide range of bikes available both in shops and second hand and now a good choice of  electric bikes enabling  anyone to enjoy cycling without having to struggle. With an electric bike, it’s almost as though hills no longer exist!

Aylesbury CTC (Cycling Tourist Club) is relaunching its Newcomers and Easy Pace rides. These rides are leisure rides aimed at both new cyclists and those with a bit more experience. All rides have a stop for tea, cake and a rest! They are a great opportunity to meet other riders.

The Newcomers rides are between 15 and 20 miles long at about 8 to 10 miles an hour and the Easy Pace are about 30 miles long and around 10 to 11 miles an hour.

Easy Pace will be on the first and third Sundays of the month and Newcomers the second and fourth Sundays, starting mainly from Watermead Inn, Weston Turville shops and the Bugle Horn.

All you need is a roadworthy bike, a spare inner tube, a drink and suitable clothing including a waterproof just in case! Helmets are recommended, but not essential.

Click here for more details including times and start locations are available on our website.

Or click here to email us. 

For new riders we recommend the Newcomers rides. If you enjoy riding with us, but want to do more we also have Step Up and Moderate rides. These are aimed at faster riders.

Newcomer/Easy Pace Co-ordinators: Ben Parry and Jeremy Scothern

Town Mayor announces charities of the year

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Thu, 06/09/2022 - 11:51

The Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr Tim Dixon, has announced he will support Aylesbury Foodbank and Emmett’s Genies during his mayoral term.

The Town Mayor will host fundraising events and stalls to raise funds and awareness for both charities.

Aylesbury Foodbank is funded by local churches and community groups to stop hunger in the Aylesbury area. The Town Mayor will be taking on a 10 Tonne Challenge for the charity. Foodbank donation stations will be at all Town Council community events to give attendees the opportunity to donate non-perishable items to support the foodbank and help the Town Mayor reach his ten-tonne goal before May 2023.

The Town Mayor’s second charity, Emmett’s Genies, was founded by Amy Scullard who was inspired to build a “wish village” after visiting Give Kids The World Village in Florida with her son Emmett who was diagnosed with a stage one Germ Cell Tumour at two-and-a-half-years-old.

Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr Dixon, said: “I have chosen to support both charities as they each make a difference to the lives of residents in Aylesbury.

“As a trustee of Aylesbury Foodbank, I know how important it is for people in our society to have access to food donations. I hope to raise more awareness of the foodbank during the year and I hope residents will help me to reach my 10 Tonne Challenge target before the end of my mayoral term.

“Meeting with Amy, the founder of Emmett’s Genies, inspired me to raise as much money as possible to support her incredible long-term vision of creating a “wish village” for to provide respite and long-lasting memories for critically ill children and their families. The physical village may take a while to come to fruition, but our funds raised will support the mid-term goal of an app created exclusively designed for critically ill children undergoing treatment. The app will allow children to create their own virtual “wish village” which will be then used to design the future physical village – leaving a permanent personalised legacy of the child.

“It is an honour to choose these charities and I hope the town will support upcoming events to help raise as much awareness and funds for both of them.”

Party organisers who wanted to experience the fun and thrill from one of the local entertainers applied for one to attend their event free of charge.

The roadshow was enjoyed by residents of all ages in local streets, living rooms, care homes, gardens and driveways. Entertainers included children’s party games with Louise from Party Poppers, mystifying magic with Simon Says Magic, a Best of British singing show with Michaela from MJ Productions and fun games and music with DJ Dan Blaze.

The Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr Tim Dixon, made a surprise appearance at some of the street parties and was able to celebrate the special occasion with residents.

Cllr Tim Dixon said: “The roadshows were a wonderful way for the Town Council to support many members of the community, including those who may not have been able to venture far from their homes.

“I was impressed by the work that so many had put into the events and it was brilliant to see how happy everyone was. I spoke with many residents about the work they do locally to support local communities. This town has a lot of unsung heroes that work tirelessly for the betterment of others. It was really good to have the chance to meet so many residents to thank them personally as well as marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.”

A resident was thrilled to have free entertainment at their street party: “The children thoroughly enjoyed every single moment. As did us big people. I think the laughter would have been heard far from Radnor End. The community spirit was electric, I have never known such a wonderful atmosphere and so much fun.

“We were so thrilled to meet the Mayor of Aylesbury too. He spent time posing with us and chatting to everybody. It truly was an amazing day!”

Breast Friends is a small Aylesbury based support group run entirely by volunteers and offers a listening ear as well as practical, confidential support to those who have been affected by breast cancer. The group was formed several years ago by several ladies who wanted to ensure that others in the Aylesbury area would not feel the same isolation that they had experienced following their diagnosis of breast cancer.

Members of Breast Friends meet one the second Tuesday of the month at at The Lounge at The Church of the Holy Spirit, Bedgrove, 7-9pm. There is the opportunity to get together for a chat over a tea and biscuits in a supportive and informal atmosphere. The monthly meetings often include guest speakers and other social events.

Whether you have just been diagnosed, are currently undergoing treatment or completed your active treatment a while ago, the group offers emotional support and practical, up-to-date information.

Above all, the group offers an understanding voice at the end of the phone should you ever need it.

If you or someone you care about has been affected by breast cancer, please take a look at our website by clicking here.

Alternatively if you prefer,  please call Jane on 07743 350833 or email info@breastfriends-aylesbury.org.uk

A trip to the seaside… in Buckinghamshire!

Have a whale of a time at this year’s Aylesbury on Sea. Around 60 tonnes of sand will take over the town’s largest park on Sunday 3 July.

Expect many much-loved seaside activities including Punch and Judy shows, face painting, bingo, land train and arts and crafts.

Whizz down the inflatable Helter Skelter and have fun in the sun in the Super Soaker Arena which are both new for 2022.

Get stuck into building the finest sandcastle as the Town Council will be providing buckets and spades aplenty. You might even spot a mermaid or a crew of pirates who have made it to shore. Sweet and savoury delights can be purchased on the day too.

Everyone is invited to Aylesbury on Sea in Vale Park (HP20 1DX) on Sunday 3 July from 11am-4pm.

Celebrating the dementia community during Dementia Action Week

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Thu, 05/05/2022 - 10:50

Aylesbury Town Council and Aylesbury Library will host a music-themed gathering for those living with dementia and their carers during Dementia Action Week (16-22 May).

Aylesbury Town Council’s Dementia Friendly Aylesbury project has worked in partnership with Aylesbury Library since last summer to host monthly #TuesdayTunes sessions to encourage conversations about music from days gone by.

Since it started, #TuesdayTunes has provided the dementia community a space to meet and engage through the power of music.

To celebrate Dementia Action Week and Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, #TuesdayTunes invites the dementia community to join them in Aylesbury Library on Tuesday 17 May from 10am-12 noon. Attendees are invited to bring along photos or memorabilia from past jubilee celebrations or Her Majesty’s coronation. Light refreshments will be available.

Dementia Friendly Aylesbury has recently had its ‘Working to become a Dementia Friendly Community for another year’ status renewed for another year. This official recognition is given by the national dementia charity, Alzheimer’s Society.

St George’s Day Victorian Historical Fayre and Parade

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Mon, 04/25/2022 - 15:43

Many marvelled at our first community event of the year. St George’s Day Victorian Historical Fayre and Parade returned in a brand-new format on Sunday 24 April 2022.

The Victorian Historical Fayre with Dr Melford’s Travelling Show took place in the garden of Discover Bucks Museum. Punters wondered at the World’s Strongest Man, Bone the Seer and other mind-bending curiosities in the museum’s garden. There was also an opportunity to meet Her Majesty Queen Victoria who wowed her audience at the free family-friendly event.

Everyone was welcome as the Town Council included a sensory room and sideshows were BSL signed by Hand Talking as part of the Fayre.

Sunday Lunch Open Mic

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Thu, 04/21/2022 - 09:49

Calling all budding musicians, local bands and aspiring poets – be part of Aylesbury’s Sunday Lunch Open Mic sessions this summer.

Local performers are invited to stage their talent at The Exchange in Aylesbury every month starting on Sunday 1 May.

If supporting local talent is more your thing, you can sit back, relax and be entertained each month throughout the summer, in one of the many eateries which surround the performance area.

Willing performers do not need to pre-register, just rock up on the day, add your name to the Open Mic board and perform music, poetry, readings or recitals.

Sessions are open for all to perform and can be enjoyed on the first Sunday of each month from 11am-2pm until 4 September at The Exchange, Aylesbury, HP20 1US.

The Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr Anders Christensen, said: “I hope these sessions will inspire and encourage local people who may have never performed in public before to step forward and do so in a relaxed, informal environment.

“Whether you’re a solo artist, in a band, would like to read poem or an extract of a book, this is a chance to do so.”

Sunday Lunch Open Mic sessions are free to be part of and are supported by Aylesbury Town Council. Electro-acoustic instruments can be used through the PA.

Online resource for Buck’s Ukrainian refugees, hosts and community groups

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Tue, 04/12/2022 - 10:59

A new online resource for individuals, charities and community groups providing support for Ukrainian refugees in Buckinghamshire has been launched by local charity Community Impact Bucks.

The webpage – Community Support for Ukrainian refugees in Buckinghamshire – provides information on the help already available in the county, and also details of where individuals and organisations can register their offers of support. This includes information for:

  • Bucks residents who want to help Ukrainian refugees in the county
  • Charities/ community groups in Buckinghamshire which are offering support or facilities to the county’s Ukrainian refugees
  • Refugees or hosts in the county who want to find out what support is available within Bucks communities.

Buckinghamshire Council established the Bucks Ukraine Partnership, a cross-sector partnership, to coordinate support for Ukrainian refugees in the county. As part of this, Community Impact Bucks is leading the Community Capacity sub-group which is engaging with charities, community groups and individuals in the community who can offer support.
