Sound financial advice
Wednesday 24th July 2019 6:00pm – 13 miles
Starting from Amersham, we will ride to Penn on mainly quiet
country roads. There are a few hills on the way but we always wait and

stunning Grade II listed 16th century pub, dating back to 1577 for a
Give us your views on roads
Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC) is seeking the opinions of residents on the county's road system in a new online survey that will provide information that will inform the council's strategic highways planning.This online survey is open to all residents, and is in addition to the annual National Highways and Transportation (NHT) survey which was sent to 3,300 randomly selected households in Buckinghamshire during June.
Through this survey, BCC will be taking a deeper look at two of
the key NHT questions which concern ‘Road Condition’ and ‘Road
Congestion’. The opinions collected through this survey will be used
to supplement the information obtained via the NHT.Deputy
Leader and Cabinet Member for Transportation Mark Shaw said: "when we look
at the combined results of these two surveys, we can really start to build
a picture of how the public views and rates our services. This will assist
both Buckinghamshire County Council with transport planning and Transport
for Buckinghamshire - the strategic highway maintenance arm of the
organisation – with advising us on where the roads budget is best spent
The survey will remain open to the residents of Buckinghamshire
until 30 September 2019. It takes under five minutes to complete and is
open to all residents even if they have responded to the initial NHT
survey received last month. The results will be made available on the BCC
website in the autumn this year.

Don’t let airport scanners ruin your holiday
If you’re travelling by air for a holiday or business trip and need to take a medical device with you, there is a new way to prevent them getting damaged at airport scanners. Getting a Medical Device Awareness Card before you fly could help you keep them safe.
Medical devices such as insulin pumps, Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) systems and freestyle libre (flash glucose monitor) devices should not be exposed to x-ray screening and airport scanners, which can cause potential damage.
The awareness card provides information for both the Security Officer and the passenger. Before going through the airport scanners, passengers should make the Security Officer aware of the device (including spare devices) and ask for an alternative security screening method.
Gill Dunn, Diabetes Specialist Nurse, Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group said “The awareness card is an excellent way to remind patients with an insulin pump or CGM how to prepare for their journey. This includes bringing some medical evidence with them to confirm they use a medical device.”
The awareness card has been produced by theUK Civil Aviation Authority and Airport Operators Association. It can be downloaded and printed direct from the CAA website www.caa.co.uk
More information on the Medical Device Awareness Card is available at www.caa.co.uk
