These are some of the aircraft you can expect to see….


Embrace your counselling experience

I’m sharing this post as I am aware that many people have a fear of taking the first steps into counselling. Once you get started, you will wonder why you hadn’t started the process years ago. Take a look around my website, read the blog posts & view the Facebook page…. keeping your mind healthy is so important in helping you live a more contented life.


If you are not familiar with counselling, you may be thinking that your therapist will judge you & tell you what you must do or think. This is most definitely not the case.

We are here to support you as you process your thoughts & feelings, no matter what they are. Your therapist will only help you visit areas of your life that you want to look at, they would never push you into areas that you are not ready for or put ideas in your head.

I have had clients that come to see me expecting to be forced to discuss subjects that they really need to build up to. Please don’t put off taking your first steps into counselling with thoughts that this will be anything other than a calm, non-judgemental & safe place to help you find ways to cope with life. Also, remember that if you start to feel it’s all too much, we don’t have to do the full hour….. you can finish the session whenever you like.

Even if you think your problems aren’t severe enough for counselling, we are here to support you through anything & everything. And remember, online counselling means you are safe & comfortable in your own environment.
I hope you will make that first move & contact me, I’m here whenever you need me.

Advertising – You Pay What You Think It’s Worth!

So I’ve had an idea to try advertising fees in a different way. You tell me what you think you should pay per month & if we come to an agreement, I can add your business advert straight onto the website. Obviously serious suggestions only!

You can also pay monthly… I’ll invoice you on the same day each month & not only add you to the Business Directory but share your business advert around Facebook & Twitter on a regular basis.
So… who’s first?!

Look Back In Time -Now & Then

With the idea of showing how the area has changed, Anna & I spent time photographing certain parts so you could see the comparison between now & “back in the day”.

All old photos are courtesy of “The Way It Was” series of books which you have probably seen but we wanted to put together the now & then so you can see some of the small details that have lasted over the years or have perhaps been added, not to mention buildings that have disappeared altogether.

To get us started here is a couple from Well End & through the village but will also share photos of other parts of Bourne End & into Wooburn Green.

We tried to stand in the same position as the original photographer to capture the difference over the years but as you can appreciate some of the angles would mean standing on a busy road, so we have tried to re-create the view as best we can.

Although it was a beautiful sunny day we have changed the photos in black & white. We will share the photos over the next week or so. See how many original features you can spot & which buildings are still present along with how small trees have grown into mighty oaks!

Hope you enjoy taking a look…. Kaye & Anna (Day)

Bucks Family History Society – Exploring Churchyards – 8th May at Bourne End Community Centre

This looks interesting, on tomorrow night (8th May)…

BucksFHS Exploring Churchyards, The Lost Language of Headstones

Many of us wander around churchyards and cemeteries, tracing family members or just out of interest. This illustrated talk by Kevin Varty explores the sometimes hidden meanings of the symbols which are often carved into the headstones, revealing a lost language from the past. The talk also shows how these symbols have been used by the funeral business, especially during Victorian times.

This is what we’ll lose if we can’t Save Slate Meadow

Just think about what we will lose & how we will cope with the extra people using our facilities, roads, schools etc. If you don’t know where to start, read some of the other objections first to help you put your thoughts into action.

Please go to the Wycombe District website & share your objections however small (or big!)… time is running out.

I must admit I have left it a little late myself thinking I would find it too confusing & that I wouldn’t know what to write to sound like I was making an “intelligent” objection. But I decided anything is better than nothing… yes i did ramble on but hey, can’t do any harm!

Wotton Underwood Village Fete

£3 per person £2 concession Children U12 go free
Free Parking

The Wotton Underwood Village Fete is held bi-annually on the grounds of Wotton House, with the kind permission of David Gladstone. Wotton House is an incredible Grade 1 listed Manor house in the English Baroque style dating back to the 18th Century, with grounds landscaped in the early 1800’s by Capability Brown. We are extremely lucky to be able to host the fete here in such an incredible and historic setting! The fete is a charitable cause in aid of the village Church which features in the Domesday Book of 1086!

The fete has been created to be a fabulous family day out with something for everyone. From tours of the fabulous Wotton House itself (additional charge), Children’s games, livestock on show, a Dog Show (so please don’t leave Fido at home!!), a festival of ‘Celebration’ in flowers in the Church, food by ex-Michelin Star Chef Phillip Britten and drinks in the Bar Box (a great new concept for drinks)! There will be Live music, a Tombolo, a Raffle with loads of prizes and a main cash prize of £100!!

Also available on sale will be local produce, teas and cakes, ice-creams, bric-a-brac, and plants.
With the setting described above and all of the activities taking place, there is no-where you should rather be!!
