Thanks for letting us design your new website. We hope you like it!
Yes - I do like it. I can easily find my way around and it is helpful advertising the various fund-raising we do.
In response to your request for feedback on the roads and footpaths I would like to say that I think they are in a dreadful condition. The footpaths along simpson road are too narrow and very uneven - very hazardous for anyone pushing a pram or wheelchair. They desparately need levelling and widening. The road is in a terrible stae of repair and needs resurfacing and some traffic calming measures to reduce the speeds of cars often using the road as a cut through.
Just noticed the new website - it looks great!
Clean, clear and very accessible Well done.
I was sorry to miss the meeting about Simpson environs, including footpaths a little while back.
There is still an area between the Plough and Warren Bank that was a path, and which should have the fence reinstated, to maintain the old footpath, and also to help keep Warren Bank from being walked through.
Thanks to all those who helped support our event on Saturday November 30 in the Village Hall. We raised £405 for the Food Bank MK, along with a shopping trolley of food. It was a good social afternoon in the village.
I love the beautiful photos of the area at the top of the page - and the changing seasons.

Most impressed with new website and I hope it attracts many visits from our community
5 am, and I can see street lights on going down from Warren Bank to the road.
I am so tired of this light pollution through the night - is there nothing we can do to say have them turned off e.g. at midnight?
You have been asking about locations of Dog bins. In the winter, when the animals are out of the big field opposite the Church door we really need a bin on the exit from that field. If you walk out of Simpson and into that field and back out the same way there is no convenient bin. The nearest is on the other side of the filed near the George Amey Centre or the picnic area below Hanmer Rd. Both quite a distance.
In the dog bin report going to the Sept 7th 2015 Parish Council meeting, a bin in that location is exactly what has been recommended, along with another bin adjacent to the aluminium footbridge over the V8, between Old Groveway and Flexerne, and a further bin to serve Phase 3 of Ashland. The final decision will of course will rest with the Parish Council. You are most welcome to come along to the meeting on Monday 7 September at 8pm at Simpson Village Hall and make any comments you wish in support of the proposal.

Can I say thank you to the secret gardeners
who pop up when nobody is around to plant wonderful flower beds around Simpson. They always make me smile
there are nice features - I just wish the garden I used to tend around Warren Bank had not been totally removed a year or so ago - I grieve for the plants I had tended over 20/30 years - along with herbs I had planted - rosemary, bay etc.
Thanks to those who supported CANINE PARTNERS soup and cake lunch on February 20th in Simpson Village Hall. £163 was raised for CP and interest in Puppy Parenting was generated.
I was rather shocked to see the tall trees had been cut back so dramatically in Simpson Road - what was the rationale for that? - and who was responsible?
I thought it was a nice feature, with the house behind. Now, I can see the house is a bit drear, and I miss those trees!
what do others think?
The trees were reduced by Milton Keynes Council, the owners and occupants of the Walnuts site. The work was necessary to reduce for safety reasons. In the recent past, large branches have broken off in the wind and fallen across the road."
thanks for your reply - talking with another Simpson resident who was very saddened by this; we both feel there may have been a better, less drastic option...
who is responsible for aerials etc these days?
In Warren Bank, north side, the aerial has been broken for aaaaaages...
Warren Bank is MKC property and therefore would suggest contacting the Housing service to ask for guidance. It might also be useful to contact your Warren Bank Residence Association to see if they have any guidance they can give.
red plastic bags -
I haven't had any delivered for a very long time, and consequently can't participate in the paper/ plastic recycling.
Does anyone know why they haven't been delivered to Warren Bank?
and where/ how we can get them....
