Please can we remind people again, that dogs are to be kept on leads in the Recreation Ground? This is for the safety of other people and other dogs but also so that dog owners are aware of when their dog is relieving itself. In these dark evenings we are now seeing increased incidents of owners not 'realising', making it unsafe for children, football players and other Rec. Users. Thank you for your consideration to all.
Hanslope Community Hall at the Rec. Ground now open for bookings. Local groups particularly welcome. Capacity 100. Photos attached below.

As Hanslope still has a bus service, is DRT (the shuttle bus) available to our residents? Adele Wearing (MK Council Transport) confirms: The whole of Milton Keynes borough, including Hanslope is included in the scheme. Offer of a demand responsive trip or a bus route will depend on the exact journey and the availability of a fixed bus route to provide it. If the journey requested cannot be fulfilled by public bus at that time then an MK Connect trip will be offered. This can vary even on a bus route depending on when the bus is due. If people have mobility issues meaning they can’t access nearby bus routes they are being directed to, they can give us a call on 01908 252526 and we add a note to their account so they get offered the appropriate rides. See attached PDF for 'How to Book'.
Reporting issues to the parish council: Please email the clerk on [email protected] or phone 07383 091319. These should be issues that come under the powers of the parish council. For all other issues - see below and attached guide. Postings on social media can not be considered.
Report a Problem: Reports for faulty street lights, pot holes, roadworks issues, obscured signage, overgrown hedges, flooding etc should be directed to MKC via this link: https://www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/pay-report-apply/report-it
Flooding advisory: Advice in the event of flooding is attached.
Books in Bus Shelter: It has come to our attention that books are being left in the bus shelter in the Market Square. Whilst this may be happening with the best of intentions, no permission has been requested from the PC and we understand that the books are now numerous. Sadly they also present an infection risk. Please remove the books over the next few days or we will have to remove them and dispose of them. The PC is currently discussing the establishment of a pop-up library in the village and the discussion will continue at our meeting next week, where we hope to make progress. Thank you.

Message from our local PCSO: Phone 101 and report any problems with anti-social behaviour, abandoned vehicles etc. Then the PCSO can go and investigate. No matter how small the crime is, residents must call it in to 101 and then the PCSO will be instructed to deal with it. If we as a village don't call in crimes/issues, it will be presumed that all is a haven of peace. We might even have our new PCSO diverted elsewhere and we need him here. Thanks.
