Extreme Stunt Show

Whether you’re a fan of monster trucks, motorbikes, BMX or just general mayhem, the Extreme Stunt Show Live Arena is the place to be on  Friday 18th april at the Airfield, Chesham Road B4505, HP5 3RR.

Firstly check out the monster action where trucks Extreme and Lil’ Devil compete to prove they’re the best car crushing monsters in Europe.  2013 was a very busy year for these monsters.  Performing at over 150 shows during the summer meant they were in need of some long overdue TLC.  The Extreme workshop has been busy over the winter months to make sure the trucks are ready to keep up with the grueling workout the drivers are going to put them through.  Both still pulling 1500 horsepower and car-crushing to the max, these machines are primed and ready for action.

Next up, the Extreme FMX lads who love to tear it up with their death defying stunts including the can can, cliffhanger, lazy boy, kiss of death, nac nac, and superman to name a few.

Prepare to be astounded as the Extreme BMX team, show you how it’s done with excessive pedal power.  Check out their bunny hops, barspins, 360s, tailwhips, flairs and of course the backflip.

With performances from our firm favourites who are primed and ready for take-off, the Extreme Team are ready to showcase their tricks.  Two wheel driving, fire stunts and just good old-fashioned chaos to take you all the way to the extreme edgeExtreme Stunt Show will be performing in

28 days to end the noise….

An enforcement order has been served today on companies operating on the area of Runways Farm, Bovingdon. Details will follow but from the Council’s area based plans only certain activities will be aproved on the area. (2004)

No more noise on airfield“The following uses are considered appropriate to the Green Belt designation of the site:

agriculture; forestry; mineral extraction appropriate low intensity, low noise, open air recreation activities such as:

allotments; equestrian circuit/paddocks; golf course; winch-launch gliding; cycle racing and other cycling facilities; land yachting.

Use of a limited part of the site for a multi-purpose open air events area (possibly including a driver/cyclist training area) may be acceptable if associated with significant environmental improvements which could create opportunities for field studies”.

Proposed Gypsy site in Bovingdon

A revised application has been put forward from Michael Cash for a gypsy caravan site in Bovingdon.

The site would accommodate members of extended traveller families, local to the district.  ‘ The families involved are vulnerable for reasons of their age or health and all are in need of a settled base in order to provide access to specialist health care, access to schooling and respite from roadside travelling’, according to his agent.

Brad Pitt goes to Prison

Brad Pitt is gearing up for a trip behind bars. But before you go adjusting your computer screens, let us explain – the 49-year-old Hollywood hunk is only heading to jail to nab some extras for his brand new World War II film, Fury.

Brad, who is currently shooting next to a high-security Mount prison, is reportedly keen to poach some inmates as movie extras in a bid to help them get back on the right track.

‘Brad is fascinated that the prison and 800 caged men are so close to where he’s working’, a source on set told the Daily Star.

‘He’s requested a visit to The Mount and has asked director David Ayers whether any of the prisoners could be used as extras as part of their rehabilitation and educational programme.’

The Mount prison may house potentially dangerous Category C prisoners – aka. those who ‘cannot be trusted in open conditions’ – but Angelina Jolie’s  other half is confident it’s a good move.

‘Despite the severity of some of the crimes the prisoners have committed, he wouldn’t be nervous at all about working with the inmates’, the insider added. ‘He’s someone who believes in second chances.’

Halfway Burgled

Take care everybody with the Christmas Holiday coming up. Last week there was a burglary in Box Lane, whilst the property was empty. They gained access by forcing open an upstairs window, searched the house and robbed the safe.
Villagers have reported being visited by 1 or more persons, asking for directions, only for a second or third to sneak around the back of the house looking for opportunities.
Saturday night, the Halfway House was burgled.
If you have any information in relation to these crimes please contact police on non-emergency number 101 or crime stoppers on 0800 555 111

A lift to be installed in Dudley House

A planning application has been submitted for the installation of external single person lift on north elevation and alterations to existing pitched roof to accommodate exit from lift in Dudley house.

Who actually lives in Dudley House now? Anyone know. Thought it was for the old people of Bovingdon.

Gypsy, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople

DDPD: Gypsy, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople Site Options Public Consultation

The Chiltern District Council’s Cabinet on Tuesday 27th August 2013 agreed for the Public Participation on Site Options for Gypsy, Travellers and travelling showpeoples accommodation to be carried out as part of the Delivery Development Plan Document (DDPD). The Public Participation consultation will run from 2nd September 2013 to 5pm on the 14th October 2013.

The Buckinghamshire Traveller Accommodation Needs Assessment (BTANA), which assesses the need for Gypsies, Travellers and travelling showpeople accommodation in the County is now available on the Council’s website:
http://www.chiltern.gov.uk/planning/deliverydevelopmentplandocument

”CDC are proposing potential travellers site locations, one of which, Site 6 is just out on the main road but on the Bucks side of the county boundary, located midway between the Whelpley Hill junction and the Jasons Hill junctions of the B4505 – very close to Bovingdon. We want to make sure that Bovingdon are aware and it doesn’t slip under your radar due to it being a Chiltern District Council matter rather than Dacorum. If it were developed it would affect Bovingdon heavily as it is the nearest village with amenities!”

Pudsey – The Movie

PudseySimon Cowell will play a dog in ‘Pudsey: The Movie’ being filmed in Sarratt as I speak. The 53-year-old music mogul is to portray a pooch pal of the loveable canine, who shot to fame with his owner Ashleigh Butler last year when they won ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, with his fellow ‘Bgt’ judge David Walliams signed up to voice the titular mutt. A source said: ”It’s the perfect pairing. Simon and David had such great chemistry and banter on Britain’s Got Talent that it makes sense to get them together for the movie. ”If David is voicing Pudsey then who better to play one of his furry friends…
