Welcome to the online edition of the Parish Link.

The Parish Link is a magazine serving the villages of Kensworth, Studham and Whipsnade in the south of Bedfordshire. This version has been designed to complement rather than replace our traditional paper-based magazine, and hopefully extend its reach to enable previous residents to    remain connected. 

Look on this website for images of previous events throughout the year, back issues of the magazine, whats on, church services and directories, travel information, local organisations and authorities and there is also a contact page if you wish to get in touch about the website or the magazine.

By now the next stage of writing the Studham plan should have been delivered to you in the form of a questionnaire. Please be aware that there will be a Public Meeting at 10.00am on Saturday 21st January in Studham Village Hall. This is an opportunity for you to speak to the Neighbourhood Plan Committee should you have any concerns about any of the questions or need help in completing the Questionnaire.

Your views count - make sure you have your say.

Local Organisations

Do you want to know what clubs or activities are in the villages. Perhaps you need to know who to contact in your Neighbourhood Watch scheme. The answer to these and other questions can be found on the Local Organisations page.

News from the Pews

Please see these words from Reverend Gill Hulme in Thought for the Month for December/January.

If you were unable to attend church this week we would be pleased to see you soon when you will be made most welcome. See Church Services.

Work on the extension to Whipsnade Church is nearing completion. Please see images here. A big thank you to all who contributed to our fund raising. We are extremely grateful. Weather permitting the work should be completed by the end of January.
