Created and Maintained by MVP
MVP AGM 2014 12th March
This will take place at the start of our regular monthly meeting at 7:30 pm in the meeting room at the Methodist Church. It won't be long but it is important. MVP must have a committee to do all the things in the village that people want. To form a committee we need a chairman, secretary, treasurer, vice chairman and affiliates secretary as well as some more committee members. All those posts are up for election at the AGM - come along to find out more, maybe join the committee or even take on a post.
We welcome any members of the public who want to come along and confirm that we are doing the right kind of things or to tell us if they are unhappy about anything MVP is doing.

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to a robbery in Burghfield Common.
The offence occurred at the Nisa and Post Office store in Recreation Road between 7.30pm and 7.40pm on the 19th February. A man entered the store and approached the counter carrying what the victim believed to be a silver handgun and a black plastic bag.
He demanded that members of staff fill the bag with money, which they did. The offender then fled the scene. The suspect is about 5ft 10ins to 11ins tall. He was wearing a black hooded coat, dark tracksuit bottoms with a white stripe to the knee, black and white trainers, black gloves and a skull-type mask.
No members of staff were injured during the incident.
Investigating officer, Det Con Danny Bowles said: “I would appeal to anyone who saw anyone matching the description of the suspect, or witnessed anything suspicious in the area at the time to contact police via 101.
Alternatively, if you don't want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
Further, I would urge other local business to be vigilant and ensure that the minimum amount of money is kept in tills to deter similar offences from taking place.
I would like to reassure members of the public that incidents such as these are extremely rare, and that police are conducting a thorough investigation to bring the perpetrator to justice.
