Radnage Coronation Party 7th May 2023

A great team of village volunteers have pulled together what promises to be a brilliant day of celebration and community on 7th May in celebration of The Kings Coronation.  It should really be a day to remember !

Please come along and support us on the day – there is loads planned to keep both adults and children entertained 😊.

To give you an idea … we have an all-day bar open and Daws Hill Vineyard will also have an all-day cocktail tent. There is live music. There is great food booked – a ‘Big Lunch’ BBQ from the Scouts, WI cakes and teas during the afternoon and an authentic Italian Pizza van later in the day….

Then there is other entertainment and activities planned all afternoon – kids fun run, kids fancy dress competition, bouncy castle, inflatable assault course (adults too), Radnage Raiders footie games, Zumba, our very own ‘Crufts’ competition, a silent disco for all/face painting/arts and crafts all afternoon, a Radnage talent contest, along with a tombola, fete stalls, and fete games including the brilliant tug-of-war !!

We hope there will be something for all Radnage residents of all ages, including friends and family …  😊

Most activities are free, excluding bars, food stalls, fete stalls, tombola and the fun run …

We are open for registrations for ‘Radnage Crufts’ and ‘Radnage Has Talent’, also for additional volunteers needed on the day  – see flyer for contact details or email parish.clerk@radnage.net . If you have any tombola prizes please contact parish.clerk@radnage.net .

We hope to see many of you there on the 7th May anytime from 11.30am to 7pm (or when we close!)

Bledlow Household Recycling Centre reopens next week

Press Release from Buckinghamshire Council

09 January 2023


Next Monday, Buckinghamshire Council will officially be reopening the Bledlow Household Recycling Centre (HRC).

From Monday 16 January 2023 the site will be open five days a week, closing every Wednesday and Thursday. It will open 9am-4pm in the winter (Oct-Mar) and 9am-6pm in the summer (Apr-Sep).

The site will look and feel very similar to other household recycling centres in the county. Buckinghamshire residents can visit free of charge, but there will be costs for disposing of any non-household waste

Bledlow is a rural site so residents are asked to consider the local area when travelling. The site is most suited for small trips and residents with lots of waste are encouraged to use the larger sites such as Aston Clinton and High Wycombe.

To minimise disruption in nearby villages, residents are asked try to avoid visiting at busier times, like school drop off. Visitors should drive slowly and safely and take care of cyclists, farm machinery and other road users when entering and exiting the site.

Before visiting, residents are encouraged to check the webcams online to see how busy the site is and for the quieter times to visit. All sites are currently open 9am-4pm however during busy periods, especially at weekends, last entry may be before 4pm to allow those already onsite to unload their waste and exit before the site closes. Residents are asked to consider coming back at another time if the site is busy, especially if there are queues outside the site.

Bucks residents are being reminded to bring proof of address when visiting, such as a:

  • council tax statement
  • utility bill
  • passport
  • driving licence

Waste permits will be needed if residents are visiting in vans, or want to use trailers. Trade waste is not allowed on site, please find an alternative site.

Oxfordshire residents, for example those living in the Thame and Chinnor areas, must pay to visit the site. Charges start from approximately £20 per trip for a small car, and nearer £50-60 for a medium-sized car. Alternative household recycling centres in Oxfordshire are available on the Oxfordshire County Council website.

Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change commented: “The reopening of Bledlow Household Recycling Centre will benefit local residents needing to make a small trip to the tip.

“We’d like to ask users of the site to be considerate of neighbouring communities and villages by driving slowly and being mindful about the impact of queues on traffic congestion. Please check the online webcams to see how busy the site is before visiting Bledlow HRC. If necessary, consider spreading your visits or visit the Aston Clinton or High Wycombe sites for larger trips.

“Based on other recycling centres in Buckinghamshire, we expect the site to be busiest on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and quietest on Tuesday mornings. To manage potential traffic outside the site, some temporary traffic management will be in place with no access turning right into the site from the south. All users are asked to approach the site from the north via Wigans Lane. Please check the website for more information and remember to plan ahead and allow plenty of time for your trip.”
