There is no getting away from the fact that the bottom line matters. But the best businesses are about more than making money. The Woburn Sands Business Association (WSBA) was set up in recognition of the fact that great things happen when like-minded people come together in the pursuit of common goals and aspirations. We are a diverse group of local business owners, from bakers to designers, from owners of large, long-established companies to entrepreneurs just starting out. As a group, we seek to buoy one another up, to share ideas, to celebrate successes, and to commiserate failures. Our members meet regularly to share their experiences and, where possible, work together to meet the needs of their customers and achieve their business aims. We also seek to promote and support our local community. In our global world, it can be easy to forget to celebrate the local, but we all benefit when we invest in and enrich the communities in which our day-to-day lives play out. In coming together and supporting one another, we build a strong and mutually beneficial network, we improve our local economy, and we solidify relationships and partnerships. At a time when it can feel as though our towns and sense of community are being eroded, the WSBA seeks to retain feelings of fellowship and familiarity. So, we invite you to engage with us, the WSBA – whether through becoming a member, supporting local business, or offering your local nous to help us direct and improve our efforts. Together we can do great things. If you have a business based in Woburn Sands, Aspley Guise or Aspley Heath, joining is easy!

Bench Replacements: The two new benches have been installed. One in Church Street next to St Boltophs church and one at the junction of West Hill and The Mount. Playground Repairs: The repairs to the play areas at Townlands and the Recreation were expected to take place in August, however this has now been pushed back to October and possibly later due to staffing issues with the contractor. Exact dates will be published on our FB account as soon they are known. Defibrillator: Councillor Hawley and her daughter Jo have been fund raising for defibrillators for the village. It is hoped to install two at key locations, one being in the micro library phone box at the junction of Spinney Lane and Mount Pleasant and one in the Square. Currently they have raised enough money to purchase one, and the Council are in the process of engaging with an electrician to ensure it can be fitted within the old phone box. Once we have the defibrillator on order, we hope to run an awareness course on how to use this life-saving equipment and will post details on our Facebook page and in later newsletters.

Not only was the cyclist hurt, but two vehicles were also damaged. Once again, even though we are in the tail-end of light evenings, BBPC asks cyclists to use the road responsibly and for pedestrians to keep their wits about them. All too often bicycle bells are not utilised to alert those close to an The Parish Council remains concerned that the proposed impending bike, invariably being operated at speed with little Ox-Cam project could wipe out Station Road, at best leaving time to react. only the Southern side of it intact.
