We have received a kind request from Steve Davis:
The Chilterns Conservation Board
urges the public NOT to feed red kites.
They should be left to feed naturally in the wider countryside, thus enabling them to find a naturally sustainable level.
Red kites can survive well in the Chilterns without artificial feeding, so it is not necessary to supplement their diet.
It is feared that providing too much additional food can prevent the population from spreading naturally and cause the birds to cluster in large numbers where food is offered.
Please Do NOT
Feed The Red Kites!

Works have commenced to improve the training courts at Bedgrove Park.
Works will include resurfacing, improved fencing, socketed tennis equipment and line marking.
Works will also involve the removal of 4 trees located to the back of the courts (2 within the Park and 2 located within the Acorn house back garden)
to avoid any further subsidence to the newly surfaced training courts.
Over the autumn/winter 180 whips were planted within the Spinney (with the help of the Rotary Club and local councillors) and a further 10 trees in the wider park.
The duration of the works is expected to last approximately 7-8 weeks, this includes a 4 week curing period on the asphalt surfacing prior to line marking.
Notices will be put up on-site informing park users of the works.

PROPOSAL FOR BEDGROVE PARK
Currently, the courts are left unused, neglected,
and falling into a poor state of repair.
Following the closure of the Bedgrove Park training courts
located to the rear of the community centre, it's proposed the
courts will be resurfaced and marked out for tennis, providing
three courts in total.
In order to avoid the administration cost
of a booking system and to promote health and well being, these
will be provided free of charge to use.
A fair usage policy will be put in place through on-site signage.
Any groups e.g. boot camps or tennis trainers, wishing to
book the courts will still be able to arrange this via AVDC's
Events Team, for which there may be a charge.
The court nearest
to the Community Centre could be separately fenced off, enabling
it to be used solely by Community Centre customers when required
e.g. the pre-school. This separate court could also be marked out
for informal netball practice, should there be a demand.
This project will require the removal of two trees in close
proximity to the courts in order to prevent potential future root
damage, however, these will be replaced with 6 trees at suitable
locations further away from the courts, so as to ensure an
overall net gain in tree numbers.
If anyone has any questions on the above more than happy to
try and answer them or to seek info from the team at AVDC.
