HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh 10th June 1921 – 9th April 2021

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and our thoughts and deep condolences are with the Royal Family at this time.

Our flag, at the Parish Centre, has been lowered as a mark of respect and will remain so until 08:00 hours on the morning after the funeral on Saturday 17 April 2021

Regrettably, the signing of books of condolence has been discouraged and people are recommended to leave messages of condolence on the website:

The Palace has also requested that people should consider making a donation to a charity of their choice, or to one of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Patronages, in memory of His Royal Highness, instead of leaving floral tributes.

Great British September Clean

THE PARISH PICKERS will be supporting The Great British September Clean on Saturday 19 September meeting at Park Street Lane Recreation Ground and Oakwood Road shops, but with a few tweaks to comply with KBT and Government guidelines.  

We will stagger the start time from 09.30 – 10.00 so please do not all turn up at 09.30. If you are one of our wonderful Lone Rangers and you have all the gear please do your own thing in your favourite patch and let us know by September 14th where you plan to pick so we don’t duplicate efforts.                                                                                                                         

Full, tied-up sacks can be left next to street bins for Veolia to collect. 

There will be Bags/Gloves/Pickers etc. provided and we will follow all the latest rules regarding social distancing and hygiene.  Please bring and use hand gel before and after picking and keep any gloves you use. Pickers and hoops can be returned to the Recreation Ground or be kept, if you want to do some future litter-picking and join our Lone Ranger group. Please come and join us to make Park Street and Bricket Wood cleaner villages.

Contact John ( Bricket Wood) at or

Contact Dennis (Park Street) at  for further info.
