No Laughing Matter!
I found this in the road near the bottom of Kings Road. For those that  are unaware, these steel canisters contain Nitrous Oxide. This gas is used as an anaesthetic or in cooking as a blowing agent for cream. I suspect this one was discarded by a drug addict, in the making, who had no respect for the locals or their own body!
This was found this at then end of a 12 miles walk yesterday but en-route I saw another 4 of these littering the hedgerows. It seems that the tiny 'Sparkets soda siphon' size gas containers are no longer of interest tot he sniffers! These containers are huge and could easily have a two wheeled vehicle sliding down the road.  This website has info on the dangers of N2O should you either use it or know someone who does. Maybe we just have a local chef who can't dispose of the empty canisters? Who knows, someone does!

CSG WI TO BE LAUNCHED SOON

A group of us (who are happy to form the committee) have been working on getting the new village WI up and running and we've been delighted by the high level of interest.
After discussion, we decided it made most sense to hold off forming the WI until this year, with the formation meeting in April. As the WI gives back any subs (£46 pa per member) paid to us for the first year, we'll get a full year's takings if we match the WI yearly cycle.
The Memorial Hall is our preferred venue and they can offer us Mondays. We are hoping the third Monday will work well in the main but we may get caught out by Easter at some point!
I'll be back with an update nearer the time to provide further details but in the meantime, if you’re interested, please put the following dates in your diary:
Monday 3rd April 8pm - preliminary meeting - WI Federation reps explain how it all works as well as a chance for everyone to say what they would like from the new WI.
Monday 17th April 8pm - formation meeting - the official launch, voting in the President and Committee, and paying the subscription to join. If you can't make this, you can still join.
Subsequent dates (all meetings start at 8pm) will be:
15th May
19th June
17th July
21st August
18th September
16th October
20th November
18th December
15th January 2024
19th February
18th March

EVERYONE WELCOME!!! - except men! Ed.

If you have any queries, please get in touch with me, Eleanor O'Connor, on 01494 875646 or elle.oconnor@ntlworld.com
I hope we see you in April!

Community Orchard Proposal Update

As we enter into 2023, the Chalfont St Giles Community Orchard Team wanted to provide an update on progress with locating a site for our community orchard. We had hoped to be able to use part of the field adjacent to Milton’s cottage, however despite our best endeavours we were unable to agree on a site within the field with the Trustees of Milton’s cottage, that would work for both parties. We are now working to find an alternative site within the central part of the village and are looking at possible options with the help of the Parish Council and Buckinghamshire Council. If anyone has additional suggestions as to a potential site we would certainly welcome the recommendation, and we will keep providing updates on progress and hope to be able to report some good news soon.
