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.



For interest, below is a more detailed copy of the Land Registry for some of the occupants of Granville Dene, so everyone knows where to park! and where their land extends…

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:

”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!”
