Bourne End photo Burnend (first recorded 1236) "End of the Stream" is where the Wye flows into the Thames. Nestling in the Chilterns alongside the river, the village has been the home of papermakers, lacemakers and brickmakers. Today Bourne End is a thriving village close to London and even closer to the open countryside of the Chiltern Hills in central southern England.

Ken Townsend Talk - photo of the Red Lion Pub - thumbnailJanuary's centreTalk was Ken Townsend on “The Vanishing Pubs of Bourne End and Wooburn”. Heralded as a talk about disappearing local pubs it proved to be a whistle-stop tour of local villages, their pubs and a huge amount of local history thrown in for good measure. When Ken Townsend talks you know you’ll get the facts and this time it was daughter Karen who helped Ken with the research.

BEBCA Target logoVolume 1 issue 4 now available

2014 is Target Magazine's 50th year. Volume I Issue I rolled off the press in Spring 1965. It was much smaller 50 years ago both in terms of the size and number of pages. "This is the first issue of a magazine designed to provide the members of our Bourne End community with a regular medium to keep you in touch with local activities and also give you the opportunity to express your views and interests". These were the first words in the magazine written by the editor Geof Gardener.
