New Noticeboards in Prestwood and Great Missenden

Thursday, April 14th, 2022

GMPRG is very pleased to announce the fruition of the second of two noticeboard projects.

New Prestwood Noticeboard

Prestwood has a shiny new board for ‘Parish & Community Notices’ in the Coop car park in Prestwood. This has replaced the previous noticeboard which was well used, but very much on its last legs!

The board has a lockable section for Parish Council notices, and a section accessible to all.

For the new board and works in the car park, GMPRG applied for grants from the old Chiltern District Council and Midcounties Coop. We commissioned the board and then organised installation, including liaison on placement with Parish Council and Buckinghamshire Council.

Look out for some further improvements in that area in the near future!

Great Missenden Tourist Information Board

The Great Missenden Tourist information board was completed last autumn – see our earlier detailed post. It is an attractive addition to the High Street, and immediately became an important point of reference for visitors. Many of the village’s attractions are detailed on an attractive map, there is a brief explanation of Great Missenden’s history and position within the Chilterns, and clear signage towards the Roald Dahl Museum. There is also a section for notices.

The Tourist Information board was the result of a collaboration between GMPRG and Great Missenden Village Association (GMVA), with funding from both, and project managed by Carole Eaden (GMPRG) and Mike Wintgens (GMVA). Funding also came from Chiltern District Council and Bucks CC (LAF and Community Leaders grants), and the Roald Dahl Museum.

The artwork and text was then taken forward also into an attractive and very useful local guide leaflet.
