Latest Ickenham Residents’ Association Newsletter

Our Autumn newsletter is now out for delivery and will hopefully soon be dropping through Association members’ letterboxes

Our stewards will also be doing their best to collect subs from you so, if you find an envelope along with the newsletter we would be very grateful if you could return it with the money and noting your name and address to the road steward named on the envelope.

We are still desperately short of people to deliver the newsletter so there will be copies in several locations in the village including Maison du Soleil and the Library.

Please, if you think you may be able to spare an hour or so once a quarter to help, either let your road steward know (see above) or contact us at ickenhamresidents@hotmail.com or our membership secretary Julian Ingram  ickres.memsec@gmail.com  or 01895 236955.

We would love to hear from you

Thank you in advance

Autumn Newsletter availability update

This updates the post made recently about newsletter availability:

Along with other Ickenham organisations, we are not printing and delivering our normal newsletter for September. We decided that there was no certainty that the situation in September would stay the same, and we would  therefore  issue the newsletter mainly online. It is available on our website to download.

If you are unable to download it, please email us on Ickenhamresidents@hotmail.com and we will email you a copy. We will also print off a very limited number of paper copies which will be available for those who are not online to collect  this week from designated points in the village, which will be Ickenham Library, Dalton’s Egg Van (on Saturdays) and Maison du Soleil.

We trust you understand our reasons for this, but we cannot risk the health and wellbeing of all our volunteers. The situation will be reviewed again before the next newsletter is due out in December.

Autumn Newsletter available here

Normally, we add newsletters to the archive as soon as the next one hits the streets. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the street-hitting still hasn’t started up.

You’ll find the Winter 2020 issue in the website archive.

If you are not a member of the Residents’ Association, for a £2 per annum subscription, you can normally get the newsletters hot off the press. For no extra, and at your choice, the Association will keep you updated with more immediate news by email. If you are a member and don’t get the emails, drop a line to ickenhamresidents@hotmail.com

David Fenton

David Fenton

It is with much regret and my sad duty to inform members of the Association that David Fenton passed away on the 2nd of June, in the Care home where he was residing in Denham.

I understand he succumbed to “a long standing, underlying infection”, (not Covid related) and, no doubt, his recent loss only last December, of Fay, his wife, will not have helped.

David had served in various capacities on the Committee, during his service from 1998 to 2013.

He served as a Committee Member; Road Steward; Area Steward; and from 1999 to 2011, as Treasurer of the Association. He eventually left the committee in 2013 due to “hearing problems”.

In addition to the above, he worked tirelessly monitoring the Cala Development on the Ex USN base, with frequent meetings with the developer to mitigate noise and nuisance emanating from the site during its construction.

His wife Fay was always in attendance with him at Association events helping out with the refreshments – an important element of any Association’s functioning.

David will be sadly missed by those who served with him in the Association, and personally by myself and Vanetta, who had become close friends of them both.

Pete Daymond. President.

Brief update (online due to COVID-19)

The Association has decided not to produce this quarter’s newsletter, nor to collect the annual subs at this time in order to protect all our stewards. We will review the situation when we are due to produce the Autumn newsletter.

In the meantime, just to keep you up to date with what has been going on in the last few months there is a brief update on the major issues on our website.

If you have a neighbour who does not have internet access, would you be kind enough to ask them if would like to know what is on here and give them an update?

Thank you in advance.

Keep safe and well.
