Great & Little Kimble cum Marsh Parish Council

Council challenge

(Kimble Stewart Hall)

Great & Little Kimble cum Marsh Parish is set in the beautiful Vale of Aylesbury at the foot of The Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire.

Each and everyone of our councillors welcome you to our rural parish. We are situated on the northern edge of the Wycombe District, with rich lower farm land to the North rising into part of the magnificent Chiltern Hills to the South.

The 394 homes are well spread across 1,212 hectares. The main settlements are Smoky Row, Clanking, Marsh, Kimblewick, Little Kimble and Great Kimble.

The southern part of the parish is within the Chilterns Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and The Green Belt – an area representing nearly 25% of the parish. The rest is most attractive too, and we strive to keep it that way.

The National Trust owns the land around Pulpit Hill. There is a network of public footpaths and bridleways from which to explore the varied countryside within the parish.

The population is growing, with many young families now taking the numbers to just over 1,000 (988 in the 2001 Census).

Household recycling centres change to regular winter opening hours

Household recycling centres change to regular winter opening hours

From Sunday 1 October, all 10 of Buckinghamshire’s Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) will switch over to the usual winter opening hours of 9am to 4pm.

The days each centre is open will remain unchanged but the change in hours reflects the fact that as it gets closer to the clocks going back at the end of October and over the winter months, the number of visitors to the sites decreases rapidly once it starts to get darker earlier.

Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment explained: “This is something that we do every year at this time, but we want to make sure that everyone is aware of this important change to winter closing times of 4pm from 1 October, so please take note.”

To find out which days your local HRC is open and also further details of what can and cannot be taken to a centre, visit:

Did you know you can also view live webcam footage via the council website, to check if the site is busy and avoid having to wait in a queue? If you are unsure about the best time to visit, take a look at the cameras and plan your trip accordingly.

Don’t forget, any items such as furniture, garden equipment, bicycles and household equipment in good condition that you are looking to get rid of, can be taken to any HRC where they are collected for reuse. Items donated are sold on by the South Bucks Hospice which runs the reuse shops in High Wycombe and Aston Clinton HRCs. Items for resale can be taken to any of the 10 sites and will be transported to the reuse shops.

Gareth continued: “We would encourage anyone who wants to get rid of good quality household and garden items to donate them to the hospice reuse shops. You can combine your donations with a regular trip to the tip so it couldn’t be easier. The items you no longer want will be snapped up by someone else who needs them and by donating in this way you are helping raise much needed funds for a local charity, so everyone is a winner.”

How can we make Buckinghamshire safer?

How can we make Buckinghamshire safer?

That is the question the Safer Buckinghamshire Board is asking residents and other interested parties as it launches its Safer Bucks consultation.

The Safer Buckinghamshire Board is the local multi-agency community safety partnership that brings together experts from the police, fire service, probation health and social care services.

Following last year’s community safety survey, the new Safer Buckinghamshire Strategy 2023-26 was developed. The strategy outlined the five key priorities for improving community safety and fear of crime in the area. To help deliver the next 12 months of the strategy, the Safer Buckinghamshire Board is keen to know:

  • What impact crime and anti-social behaviour has in local areas
  • More about people’s experiences of reporting crime
  • How safe or unsafe residents feel in Buckinghamshire

The consultation is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Buckinghamshire. It is open until 29 October. You can complete the survey online at: Community safety survey 2023: How can we make Buckinghamshire safer? . Residents can obtain a hard copy by contacting:

Thomas Broom, Buckinghamshire Council’s Deputy Cabinet Member for Community Safety said: “On the whole Buckinghamshire is a very safe place to live and visit but like any area, there can be times and locations where issues occur. We are really keen to hear from local residents and others about their experiences and the effect these matters have had on them. We can and do look at the statistics and background data, but this first-hand detail from individuals responding to a survey like this is invaluable in helping us to effectively target our resources and attention to make the best impact and improvement. It doesn’t take long to complete so please take a few minutes to let us know your thoughts.”
