Before lockdown, Prestwood on Sea, the holiday club for older residents, was held every August but it was regretfully agreed that it would not take place this year. However, two people have come forward offering to do all the cooking and so Mary Spooner from the Methodist Church has decided to run a one-off day on Wednesday 17th August from 11.30-3.15pm at the Methodist Church. Everyone is invited to come either as a guest or a helper. Volunteers to help with serving, waiting, washing up, serving teas and coffees and putting chairs and tables away at the end are asked to contact Mary Spooner on 01494 862431 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

There will also be a free raffle for all guests, and any prizes for this would be appreciated, please let Mary Wiles 866783 have these.

After a two year break for covid, Lighthouse Great Missenden is once again back on the Buryfield and will run from Monday 25th July. However it is a condition of the site's insurance that security cover is provided 24/7 from Wednesday 20th July when equipment starts to arrive on site, until Monday 1st August. Due to the break it is proving very hard to get Helpers to sign up, especially for the Security Rota and if there is anyone who feels that they can help out, could you please contact me by email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I will send you the Rota to see what sessions you can help with. Security cover is not onerous. During the day the primary concerns are to be aware of people entering the site and any health and safety requirements. During the evenings and nights it is a case of monitoring the site, which is fenced, to ensure it remains safe. The Emergency Services are always available throughout this period to provide assistance if necessary. Please consider helping Lighthouse Great Missenden this year.

From July 31 to August 28 inclusive, we will move into Summer Sundays. That means at Holy Trinity we shall have shorter services, with just two readings and a short homily, the altar will be placed in the nave, and we will celebrate in the round. At Great Hampden we will have BCP Mattins each week. 

This year's fair will be on Sunday 17th July, 11am - 4pm. Holy Trinity, Prestwood will have a stall there and will be selling preserves, cakes, savoury goodies and hand made goods. We would be grateful for help with any of the below tasks - 

  • Setting up the stall
  • Making cakes, jams, goodies etc
  • Serving during the day
  • Clearing away at the end of the day

If you can help in anyway, please speak to Jean Green or email the office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
