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.

Target February 2016 front cover thumbnailAn evening of musical entertainment features on the front page with the Jersey Guys tribute group celebrating Valentine’s at the Community Centre. Sharing the limelight is the news that two local WI groups have merged to be Bourne End and Wooburn Green WI.

A bird box making day organised by the Parish Council is featured on page 7 with the promise that your bird box will be sited as close as possible to where you live so you can follow the activity of any nesting birds. And there’s good news for the two ponds in Wooburn as the parish has plans to restore them and encourage their use by wildlife.

Bourne End Cine Club logo from 1970sThe Bourne End Video Makers Club is 50 years young this year. They are celebrating at the Community Centre on 31st May 2015, click for details. Below are some of my personal reminiscences from when I was a member in the 1970s.

My first awareness of the Bourne End Cine Club (as it was then called) takes me back to the annual Bourne End Carnivals of the 1960s and 70s. As a child I can recall the carnival days on Jacksons playing fields including me riding in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang... or can I?
