Great Missenden

COULD you be a Brownie Leader? Ladies aged 18 to 60 are being sought by Hyde Heath Brownies who meet at Hyde Heath School on Mondays 6 to 7.30pm. Through fun and games you would be responsible for teaching the 7-10 year olds to consider the feelings of others and contribute towards them becoming caring adults. If you would like to find out more call Sue Alaway on 01494 783637.

OLD Time Musical Hall is a favourite annual event. You could get a group together, organise costumes of the period and really look the part in the audience. Make a note that you have until November 16 and 17 to buy tickets These always go fast, so ring Barbara Cann on 01494 783254 for details.

IT'S shoe box time this Sunday. Last year over 1000 boxes crammed with useful household goods and children's toys were sent to Belarus and Minsk to the delight of many families in those regions who struggle every day to survive and bring up their families.

This year your donations are needed by Sunday and you are asked to take them to the Damien Hall. Ideal gifts are small toys (but no toys associated with violence please), household items including soap, shampoo and washing powder. Some innocent items can cause difficulties as happened last year when one of the containers on its way to Albania was opened at Customs and confiscated as it contained a pack of Polos. Apparently Polos contain skimmed milk which is not allow into Albania. More information about filling your shoe box are available from 01494 864373.

DIPPING into the parish news letter for Little Missenden I see they have a suggestion to cut down on unnecessary telephone messages. Leave the following recording: 'This is not an answering machine, this is a telepathic thought recording device. After the tone think about your name, your reason for calling and a number where you can be reached. Then I'll think about returning your call.'
