Hughenden News – Spring 2021, schedule for articles

Copy deadline:                                 Mon 1st March

Printing:                                              Wed 17th March

Magazine distribution:                  Mon 22nd March

As it is likely that we will still be under some form of Covid-19 restrictions the distribution date may have to flex.

Contributions are welcome from clubs and societies, and anyone who has a particular hobby or interest, job or post.  So perhaps you have time to fill right now or a latent wish to write for the magazine.  For example you could write about:

           ‘I always wanted to be ******, but instead I/we became ******’

           ‘I/we would like to organise a musical event’

           ‘I/we could help with Scouts, Guides, Brownies or Cubs and get then their own hut’

           ‘I grew up in  *****’

            Etc.

We are also looking for photographs illustrating your lockdown experience and particularly, good photos for in the Hughenden News and on its cover; don’t be shy.

A big thank you to all who contributed before Christmas.

Your chance to quiz Council spending plans

If you want to question council bosses about how your council tax is spent, you can do next week as part of the robust scrutiny process of Buckinghamshire Council’s billion pound spending plans.

Everything from Covid to children’s services and roads to regeneration goes under the microscope over three days of intense scrutiny as the Leader and his cabinet account for their spending proposals from 1st April 2021.

The committee also invite questions from Buckinghamshire residents, businesses and community groups to feed into the discussions. Questions for any of the sessions should be submitted in advance by e-mail to democracy@buckinghamshire.gov.uk. Questions can also be submitted to @buckscouncil on the Council’s Twitter and Facebook sites. Questions should be submitted by 9.00am on Monday 11 January. As much time as possible will be set aside for public questions and every session can be viewed live via webcast.
