BUCKDEN NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
Invest in the best locks you can afford. For maximum protection use two locks of different types, a D-Lock of good quality and a
robust chain with a closed shackle padlock (any bike shop should be able to offer advice). Use each lock to secure the wheels
and frame to a fixed object. Use designated cycle racks or other immovable objects that the cycle cannot be lifted over - do not
just lock the frame to the wheel.
Leave it in a well-lit public area, if possible where lots of people frequent or, in town, areas covered by CCTV. At home do not
leave cycles unlocked in your garden or at the side of your house, even for few minutes - that is all it takes to remove an inse-
cure cycle. Lock cycles in sheds and garages and keep the cycle out of sight.
Consider marking the cycle with a permanent mark and register with
101 Anyone with information for the police | 0800 555 111 Crime stoppers anonymously | 999 in an emergency

Gardening with Wildlife in Mind
The Huntingdonshire Local Group of the Wildlife Trusts is pleased to announce our next Autumn indoor event. This will take
October at 7.30pm at Brampton Memorial Hall, Thrapston Road, Brampton, PE28 4TB
Our speaker will be Iain Webb who is the Cambridge Community Conservation Officer for the Wildlife Trusts. Iain will explain
how small changes that we can make in our private gardens can make a really big difference in the conservation of our native
species. He will show us how to attract insects, amphibians, birds and small mammals by providing the best possible habitats
such as ponds, shelter, and food sources. Whether it is by planting the best nectar producing plants or simply by hanging out
nuts and seeds for birds and providing bird baths, we can all help!
This should be a really interesting talk for anyone interested in wildlife. Everyone is most welcome to attend. Booking is not
necessary. Entrance charge £2.50 (accompanied children free). Please contact Tim on 01480 457795 for more information.

Rainbows in Buckden
Rainbows are the youngest members of Girlguiding UK – girls aged from 5 to 7 years.
Being a Rainbow is all about having the space to try new things, through taking part in a range of differ-
ent activities with girls their own age. Rainbows develop self-confidence and make new friends whilst
having fun. Rainbows learn and grow through a programme of activities- games, craft, songs and challenges - both at weekly
meetings and at special events.
We meet weekly on a Tuesday in Buckden Village Hall 4.30 to 5.30pm during term time.
