Road Closure

THE BUCKINGHAMSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL (Station Road, Mursley)
(TEMPORARY PROHIBITION OF THROUGH TRAFFIC) ORDER, 2017

BUCKINGHAMSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL has made an Order, which will temporarily prohibit any vehicle from proceeding, except for access, in that length of Station Road, Mursley, which commences from junction of Whaddon Road. The alternative route for vehicles affected by the closure will be via Main Street, Whaddon Road, Mursley Road, Bletchley Road, Warren Road, Shucklow Hill, Church Street, Station Road and vice versa. The closure is required whilst Anglian Water works take place and it is anticipated that the works will commence on 31 July 2017 and will take approximately 5 days to complete.

The Order will come into operation on 31 July 2017 when the appropriate signs are lawfully displayed and will continue for a period not exceeding eighteen months or until the said works have been completed whichever is the earlier. Penalties for not observing these restrictions will be as prescribed by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and the Road Traffic Act 1991

What a Weekend!

What a weekend for Youth Football!

The MUFC is grateful for the support of those of who could get there at some point over the weekend. It just doesn't happen without the generous volunteers. There were some great laughs and some great stories to tell too.

Special mention needs to be made for the hard work put in by Ian Attwell & Sarah Knowles without who's unassuming support there wouldn't have been the wonderful feedback from MKDDL and many of the managers, parents and players who visited over the weekend.

The results are shown below, but equally importantly, there is a heightened MUFC's presence as a being real force in terms of both facilities and in Youth Football in MK.

Food:Cafe in Community (less purchases & wages) =£321.20
Kazbah (mobile van less 28 food vouchers for Volunteers) = £300
Pitch Hire (invoice to MKDDL) = £600
Car Park (parking with programme) - Day 1 = £530.00
Car Park (parking with programme) - Day 2 = £421.06

Grand Total: £2172.26

It has been decided that much of the monies will go to the Pitch Improvement Plan (PIP) which is a project currently in its infancy with Neal Root (MSA). Neal is talking with the Berks & Bucks FA to find the right means/ways in order to invest much needed time and money in this most precious resource, ie the pitches and land.

Neal would like to recruit a small team of volunteers (some have said yes already) to manage this project and bring it to fruition. Please see Neal if you are interested in getting involved.

Thanks again to all concerned.

Another Resounding Success

The latest production from the Players filled the Village Hall on Friday and Saturday evenings.
There were many familiar faces up on stage, but one or two new ones, and a welcome return for one or two more, with the general concensus from all around that it was 'a good one'.
One of the new performers was none other than our own Rector Simon, as his alter ego 'Simo'  a rather unusual 'magical artiste' whose bumbling, but ultimately clever antics, charmed the audience; the highlight this year? difficult to call, but that finale had just about everything!
The proceeds from the show will be shared between the Puzzle Centre at Winslow and Action Medical Research, and some of the hard working players are going on to tackle further challenges in aid of Action Medical Research, and you can further support their effort by going to the fund raising 'Cheesy Disco' on 20th May, see future events in this web site.

Neighbourhood Watch General Meeting

Following on from a rather poorly attended general meeting held 5/4/17, this is a brief precis of the proceedings. Although attendees numbered less than a dozen, there were several interesting queries raised, and our local PC, Wendy Taylor gave an inspirational presentation on the best way to protect ourselves. There was only one piece of equipment brought down for security marking, and Wendy is quite happy to attend again for this purpose should the need arise. She also brought with her some up to date literature, which has been passed to the co-ordinators who were present. Wendy also advised that we can obtain data tag  kits to do our own security marking of things like computers, and if we can get as many as 20 people interested, we can obtain these kits at £20 each (normal price £39.99), 
if you are interested in this, please ring 728570 to put your name down.
It was clear that not everyone knew who their own co-ordinator was, and there are currently a couple of gaps anyway, due to past co-ordinators giving up the role, and every effort is being made to plug these gaps. Meanwhile, if you have any queries concerning this report, or would like to know who your co-ordinator is, please ring Barry or Alison Agnew on 728570.

MUFC's U18's reach League Cup Final

Mursley FC’s U18s fought back from 2 goals down to win 3-2 and progress to the League Cup Final to be held on Sunday 30th April at the MK Dons stadium (KO TBA).

This is a tremendous achievement for a team in its 1st year at Mursley FC and adds to the recent County Cup success of our U18 Development squad. This could mean both our U18 sides bringing home silverware in the same season.
Well done to Lee and his talented boys"

MUFC U18's Win County Cup

Great performances from the entire Mursley United U18 Development squad to win the Berks & Bucks U18 County Cup.
With lots in green & white colours watching on, the lads took a half-time lead of 2-0 into the dressing room following a wonderful display on controlled football, applying pressure in every area of the pitch to their talented rivals.
A strong fight back in the second half saw Bucks U18s pull the game to 2-2 at the final whistle. The game then went into penalties and two splendid saves from goalkeeper Josh Bonaiti meant Mursley brought home the trophy against all the odds.
Well done to all concerned!

Neighbourhood Plan Update


A poorly attended general meeting at the Village Hall last night, following which it had been hoped a decision would be reached as to whether Mursley should go down the route of formulating a Neighbourhood Plan, ended in stalemate, with a decision being deferred until a further general meeting could be held. Those who did attend held varying opinions about the merits of pursuing such a costly and time consuming exercise, and presentations were heard from representatives from AVDC Planning and the Chairman of the Stewkley Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group. Simon West, our Parish Councillor responsible for this matter, spoke passionately and winningly about the need for such a plan, but it was generally felt that more people needed to be consulted before a decision could be made. It was therefore agreed that further canvassing would occur in the hope that the next meeting would be much better attended. Please watch this space for further detail. In the meantime, if you need further information, please contact the clerk to the Parish Council, mursleypc@btinternet.com or by leaving a message on 720979.

Mursley U18's reach final!

Many congratulations to Alan Baldwin and the boys who yesterday won through to the final of the Berks & Bucks U18 County Cup final.
With a packed Pavilion watching proceedings, the U18s fought back twice from 1-0 and 2-1 down to secure a 3-2 win. Everyone of the 13 man squad was a “man-of-the-match”.
In an all North Bucks final, they now meet Buckingham Athletic U18s.
The date is currently planned for the 26th March 2017 at a venue to be decided by the County FA.

05 January 2017

MSA Thankyou

The pub was well attended last Saturday, it was the annual gathering of MSA supporters for the usual carols and raffle draw. Disappointingly there was no mulled wine or mince pies (pub take note), but the atmosphere was great, and the voices, more or less, were raised in joyful unity.
MSA would like to thank everyone for their support, a terrific £626 was raised.

MUFC U7 Team to be Formed

Thanks to the tremendous success of our Sunday morning Mini-Kickers programme, the MUFC Committee now feel they are in a position to look towards forming an MUFC U7 team for the 2017/18 season.

They will play non-competitive 5v5 football against similar clubs at similar level. The committee plan to continue with, what will then be, the U9, U11, U13, U15 & U18 sides if the leagues are available to meet those
specific needs.

This is by way of an early notice of this and more importantly to also let everyone know that the committee will be seeking to appoint a new manager to coach and manage this team. They are keen that this individual comes
from this Community since they will be more familiar with the "Mursley Way". Tradition has it that this should be a parent of a player, but this is not a traditional youth football club as they aim to offer opportunities to the community first.

Ideally, the committee would like the manager/coach in situ ahead of the formation of the team.
So, if you are aware of anyone who might be interested in this position, please speak with Alex, Nigel or Craig about the opportunity. The committee is prepared to fund the right candidate to be able to achieve their FA Level 1 badges.

Local Break-ins

Police are warning everyone to be vigilant following a spate of local break-ins, including as close as Stewkley & Wing, and in particular, last week a property near the playing fields was completely ransacked. With regard to that incident police are after any information from witnesses, detail as follows:

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a burglary in which a car was stolen.The incident occurred between Tuesday (1/11) and Friday (4/11) at a property in Station Road, Mursley. The offender is believed to have gained entry to the property while it was unoccupied. A set of car keys were stolen from the house and subsequently a black Mercedes was taken from the driveway. The car was driven towards Bletchley. Investigating Officer PC Lauren Suffling of Aylesbury Local CID said: “I am encouraging anyone who has seen anyone acting suspiciously or any suspicious vehicles around the area to get in touch by calling the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number 101.If you do not want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers(opens new window)  anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.

In addition, we are getting reports that someone local was pinned down and robbed in their home on Monday 14th. Please will everyone be extra careful and report anything suspicious to your Neighbourhood Watch representative or direct to the police on the 101 number as above.
Thank you, and please take care.

De-fibrillator Training

Did you know there’s a Defibrillator at Mursley Village Hall?  And do you know how to use it?
Ian Jones, who is Paramedic  and NHS Community Defibrillation Officer, will be giving a 90 minute demonstration in Mursley Village Hall on 16 November at 7.30pm.
While CPR alone (chest compressions and rescue breaths) saves around 9% of people who suffer from a sudden cardiac arrest, CPR and using an automated external defibrillator (AED) increases the chance of survival five-fold to 50%.
The computerised machines, which give an electric shock to the heart to return it to normal rhythm, are a crucial life-saving tool after sudden cardiac arrest.
If you would like to attend this informal training event, please email mursleypc@btinternet.com or leave a message on 720979.

Reception at Village Hall

A group of people gathered in the Village Hall on Sunday to officially celebrate the finish of the re-furbishment works. The purpose of the event was to thank everyone who had supported the venture, some of whom were present on the day. Guests included local dignitaries Neil & Janet Blake, Janet in particular had helped the cause via her role on AVDC Community Chest. WREN were the other main contributors and were also thanked, although they did not have any representation there. Barry Agnew, Vice Chairman of the Village Hall outlined the history and detail of the works, noting that the Hall had been open more than 50 years, and past chairmen Tony Dickens and Dave Tofield, and current chairman Russell Fewing were also in attendance, Dave Tofield also in his capacity of the main contractor on the project. Barry also thanked other contributors, ie the Table Tennis Society, the Players, the Web Site Team and the Parish Council, and in particular local ex resident Randolph Weale, whose original bequest started the ball rolling. Everyone else there, in the main, had supported the scheme initially with letters and emails of support without which obtaining the grants would not have been possible.
A successful and social afternoon, a couple of photos to give you a flavour:

Swanbourne Endeavour Success!

Well done to all who took part yesterday, it was a great combined effort. The team included two juniors, Jonah Faulks and Jamie Wilson and two 5k and twenty 10k runners. There was also a great back up of supporters.

The race raises over £10k for charities and this year with more runners will probably be a record.

The challenge this year was to recover the 10k team trophy, and this was achieved in style. It is the first five runners in the team that count, but they are helped  round because they know there are 15 others chasing them!!

It was a great team effort this year that landed the trophy which is there for all to see in the Green Man.

Below is a link to the results page.


Congratulations to all concerned.

New National Number

From 6th September a new national phone number - 105 - will be launched by electricity network operators fir customers to call should they need support, or should they need to get information about a power cut in their area.
This is a free service for people in England, Scotland & Wales, and customers can call no matter who they choose to buy electricity from. You can also call if you spot damage to electricity power lines and sub-stations that could put anyone in danger.
A useful number indeed, and one to add to the list by the phone!

Proposed development in Whaddon Road

Following on from the flyer that we assume everyone has received, a reminder that there is a proposal to build circa 50 houses in the field alongside Whaddon Road and The Lane. The development has several implications should it go ahead including:

  • Possibility for future  'back land' development 
  • Additional traffic on Whaddon Road, already a hot spot for speeding vehicles
  • Possible impact on the conservation area that it borders
If you require further information you need to attend the public consultation event being held at the Village Hall in the committee rooms on 25th August, from 14.00 to 19.30, or you can contact the Developers, ADAS, email address planning@adas.co.uk web site www.resolved-developments.uk
We understand there is group of residents opposed to this development who are forming a committee, if you are interested in joining please contact Jackie via jackiedrisslaurent@outlook.com or ring 720979

Mursley in Bloom 2016 Winner

Trophy has now been presented, along with £50 in garden vouchers, so we can reveal that this year's worthy winner is 8 Manor Close, with Manor Close overall being far and away the best street/area.
Well done to all concerned, especially the winner, whose attention to detail won our judge over. This along with being able to produce a quirky basket, which had a wonderful choice of lilac flowers and some different plant choices.


Highly commended went to 15 Whaddon Road, newcomers to the Village, who are to be congratulated for joining in so whole heartedly in their first year in Mursley.

Numbers of entries were severely down this year however, maybe due to the bad weather conditions, but the organisers have decided to take the next couple of years off from organising and financing this competition, and perhaps give past 'enthusiasts' a chance to re-group. Thanks to everyone who did take part.

Thanks too to our lovely judge, Valerie, who brought a keen artists eye to this years offering, and she had this to say:
'The general standard was very high, and a lot of hard work had been put in despite the weather. The colour palette was not necessarily an easy one, but despite this, there were some well executed, creative and interesting ideas. I saw some wonderful combinations of textured foliage and unusual flowers.'

Mursley in Bloom 2016

An early reminder that this year's Mursley in Bloom colours are lilac/silver and white, as chosen by last year's winner. Whilst we recognise that 2016 is another patriotic year, so red/white & blue may well figure heavily in this years containers, please give a thought to perhaps having at least one container in this year's colour scheme, and giving yourself a chance to win the trophy this year, and £50 of garden vouchers.
You might also be able to contribute to collective honours for best area/street in Mursley, which last year went to Manor Close.
Happy seed hunting, and good luck.

Hedge in Whaddon Road

Some of you may have noticed that a hedge up Whaddon Road has been taken out.
We understand that the Council have requested that the hedge be moved to improve visibility on the bend. The owners were anxious to get the work done before nesting season, and we are told that a replacement hedge, all native species, will be planted as soon as is humanly possible.

Support your Cricket Club

You can do this by taking part in the Monthly National Lottery Bonus Ball. For a £5 stake this is an opportunity for you to win £120. 

The way it works is that you buy a Bonus Ball ticket for £5 and if your number matches the National Lottery Bonus Ball on the last Saturday of the month you win £120. Tickets are available from Andrew Cowell, Garry Ives, The Green Man and Justin Daley. There are 49 tickets on sale, if the Bonus Ball is 50-59 it is a roll over month so next month the prize will be £240.

At our Cricket Club AGM it was suggested that some people would prefer to pay for a Bonus Ball by standing order. It also avoids you losing the ticket. We will take a note of your number for that month, let you know your number before the draw and let you know if you win. If you would like to set up a standing order for £5 a month the Mursley Cricket Club details are below. If you want to buy a ticket for cash, call into the Green Man and have a pint too!!
