Community Awareness Together - Open House

 Image result for community awareness together

The first meeting took place on Weds 21st February at the Church Hall and whilst attendance was low, there were two Police officers to answer questions and give advice about security. This was very relavent following a burglary in Flitton the day before.But it was good to drop in for a chat, cup of tea and an endless supply of biscuits.

The Police suggested that residents may want to consider setting up a Street Watch scheme and mentioned one that was operating very well in Maulden. It is about local residents promoting good citizenship and supporting a better neighbourhood by patrolling their own streets. They provide visible reassurance and appropriately engage, in local issues that matter most to the community - click here for more details    If anyone is interested please let Glynis Carr know on 07795 974769.

A further meeting will be held in the Church Hall on Weds 18 April at 18.00h and more residents are encouraged to attend.

Flitton and Greenfield

Greenfield is a small village about 1.2 miles from the town of Flitwick, it lies across Flitwick Moor and is on the opposite side of the River Flit. It forms part of the parish of Flitton and Greenfield. The area was once well known as a strawberry producing area, and the fields were full of strawberry plants on either side of the main road. It is now a thriving village with several small businesses.

Flitton  (Flichtam, Fllite, and Flute) forms the other part of the parish and derives its name from river Flit. It is the home of the De Grey Mausoleum adjacent to St John the Baptist church. Flitton contains the hamlet of Wardhedges. It too has a number of small businesses and working farms.
