Nearly 80 people packed the St Margaret’s Parish Rooms on Friday 19th May for the Society’s 13th Annual General Meeting.
The majority of the meeting celebrated the achievements of the past year and was devoted to the presentation by Penelope Tollitt, Head of Planning for Wycombe District Council.
Penelope focused on why Planning is so important to people’s lives and explained the difficulty of finding the right balance between the competing needs of house building, the protection of the environment and the infrastructure developments required to support progress.
She acknowledged that retaining the identity of a place such as P&TG is a critically important planning goal and said that WDC is intent on avoiding our villages becoming part of the urban sprawl of High Wycombe.

This spring we are organising our very own Village Birdwatch.

There are many residents involved in the Village birdwatch that is taking place at the moment. If you can record the birds you see and hear, then add the names to the list in the Village hall. Or you can join the next walk in Back Common in June.

There are two parts to the plan – first the ‘official’ census of the species of birds on the Back Common and second the record of birds seen in the gardens of Penn & Tylers Green residents.

Spring birds on Back Common
A small group of residents started the Birdwatch count with the walk on the Back Common, this took place on Sunday 16th April, and again on 14th May. The next walk will take place morning from 07:00 to 09:00 June 11th. The walk starts from the Tylers Green Village Hall and, under the leadership of Bill Sadler and a birding expert will follow the tracks and paths around Back Common and keep notes on what we find. Please visit the Village Hall to view the results of the walks. You don’t need to be an expert at identifying birds to join us, but you may need to set your alarm clock! do join us, it was fun!

Spring birds in your garden
During the same period of time (April 16th to June 11th) we would like as many of you as possible to keep a record of the bird species you see in your garden. This doesn’t have to be done on a specific day or time and to make it easy we have developed a simple leaflet showing the birds commonly seen at this time of year, together with a form for recording what you see. You can download the form from the website [here] or pick one up at the Village Hall.
After June 11th we would like you to return your form to the Village Hall and we will produce a summary report on what we find for Village Voice.

The last census of spring birds on the Back Common was carried out by a group led by Eric Britnell back in 1986. Earlier ones took place in the ‘60s and ‘70s. We hope there will be sufficient interest and support to do this much more regularly in future in order to record trends in the species of local birds.

You really don’t need to know the difference between a blackcap and a linnet to get involved but if you have access to the internet you may like to check out common birds and their songs at www.british-birdsongs.uk or www.rspb.org.uk.

If you are a smartphone user there are lots of options but you may like to try two free apps – one is called ‘Birds of Britain’ and the other is called ‘Warblr’. The first is a reference work with links to the RSPB website. The second is an app that you use to record birdsong and it then tries to identify the bird species in real time.

So, please join us on one of the Sunday mornings and also keep your eyes peeled about what’s in your garden and fill in a form – it’s never been easier to join in and do something great!

In accordance with the relevant provisions in our Articles, the Board gives notice of its intention to recommend to the AGM the reappointment of Mrs Gill Markham and Mr Peter Miller as Directors ( trustees) of the Residents Society. Mrs Markham has served as Director of Public Relations, since her appointment as a Director by the Board in June of last year; Mr  Miller has been Chairman of the Penn School Working Group, since it was established under P&TGRS auspices in October last year, was co-opted to the Board in March and has recently been appointed as a Director. Their work has added considerably to the effectiveness of the Board’s communications with local Residents ( as visitors to the website for example will doubtless testify) and of its ongoing work with local authorities and national educational bodies for an acceptable outcome for use of the Penn School site..”
