Keep taking the photos.
If anyone has a special photograph and Tweet you think other residents would be interested in, please send it to me for our website.
Two examples below
‘You might have expected this ‘Berlin style’ decorated wall with an ‘Air Base’! Not a modern civilian estate like the ‘Pines’!!!’
‘While checking on the local orchids and protect them from deer grazing with sticks I found the first Narrow Lipped Helleborine in our woods. Worryingly there were large black and white mosquito’s that I have never seen before. They looked like Asiatic tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus, which has spread to Europe and is a vector for yellow fever and dengue. After checking with the None-native Species Agency it was identified as Aedes geniculatus, a native woodland mosquito often mistaken for the notorious tiger mosquito – Phew!!’

After a great turnout at our AGM on the 22nd May with 31 residents, a fascinating talk by Jackie Kay on the ‘History of the Rye’ and an update on local issues from Julia Wassel, we turn our attention to Summer events. See AGM page for details.
The main event this Summer is our Summer BBQ on the 21st July (or 4th August if weather looks bad on the 21st). There will be live music from ‘Halvar’. They were brilliant last year. So please book a slot in your calendar to join us.
‘Halvar’ are a local band becoming well known and in demand for their great music. Don’t Miss.
Please keep up to date on the Events Calendar for new and latest events including Friday evening BBQ’s
WWRA has a Facebook page as well as a website where you can share your pictures of events, past and present.
You can also ask neighbours when searching for a trusted trades person or offer your services to neighbours (trade, tutor, babysitting etc).
To access please search for our private group ‘Warren Wood Residents Association to find us.’
If you have not walked to the top of Keephill Woods lately or up to the ‘Pines’ development you may be interested (or disappointed) in what you see. See some pictures.
Twelve ‘hi vis’ residents had a very interesting visit to FCC ‘Energy from Waste’ site near Aylesbury where BCC send all our ‘grey bin’ waste to generate electricity rather than landfill. Currently about 300 tonnes of waste/annum generates 26MW/hour is electricity, enough for 40,000 homes.
Waste is delivered by lorries where large grabs drop it into a moving grate where it is incinerated into heat, flue gases and ash.
The heat drives a steam turbine and generated electricity added to the ‘national grid’.
Flue gases are cleaned to within safe limits and essentially only water vapour and carbon dioxide released. Extractable metals are separated from remaining ash.
Great weather, band, food and fun for all attending (about 60). Here are a few photos to remember it by. Thanks very much ‘Halvar’ and their support team, we enjoyed every minutes of your music very much.
