As with rest of the team she really does deserve a half term break.

Bucks Fire and Rescue Message: Please Let Us Through’….
It has been proved recently in a local incident that inconsiderate parking can cause life-threatening delays to emergency service vehicles that are trying to reach a school.
Please can you ensure that you park in designated car parks in the village and avoid the roads around the schools so that we can keep the access to the schools and local houses clear.
Please see our website for more information from Bucks Fire and Rescue.
