600 people attended a Black Lives Matter protest on the Rye yesterday afternoon. It follows a 400 strong meeting in Marlow on Saturday, at both gatherings there were no reported disturbances.

Four fire crews spent three hours battling a roof fire, after lightning struck a house in Bourne End on Saturday night. The barn conversion house was seriously damaged but nobody’s reported to have been injured. Fire crews were reportedly hampered by the water hydrants in the road being blocked by the recent resurfacing, which a local councillor is thought to be taking up with the council.

A petition to lower the speed limit on the A40 between Studley Green and West Wycombe where two cyclists were killed earlier this month, has reached almost fifteen hundred signatures. Damien Natale and Andy Coles were hit by a car on the 1st of June and both died at the scene. Police are investigating and there’s no suggestion that speeding was a factor. The online petition calls for Bucks Council to lower the speed limit from 60 to 40 through Studley Green.

Bucks NHS Trust has become the first in the UK to organise English tests on site for non-UK trained nurses. 32 overseas nurses were already recruited but weren’t able to work in hospitals because Occupational English Tests had been delayed by the lockdown, so they took the test on Saturday at Wycombe hospital, supervised by an external company. Deputy Chief Nurse Jeanette Tebbutt, said it worked so well that they’d be continuing on-site tests after the pandemic.

An application to keep digging gravel and sand at East Burnham Quarry has been put on hold after a 2 hour council debate. Planners had recommended approving the application for a four year extension to the permission, but councillors said they weren’t happy with plans to reduce noise disturbance to neighbours, and asked for planning conditions to be strengthened. It emerged during the debate that the extension wasn’t just for mining, but also for the infilling and restoration of the site. Councillors voted to defer the decision.

A journalist at the Bucks Free Press has been named Journalist of the Year by the paper’s parent company. Audience and Content Editor Stephanie Wareham was recognised for her work in 2019 by Newsquest, which has over 200 titles in the UK.

He was still talking about it when he went to bed and we had a great dance in the kitchen whilst the song was on"
