Bow Brickhill is a village and civil parish in the Borough of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England. It is located just a short distance south east of Milton Keynes itself. The village name is a combination of Brythonic and Anglo Saxon words for 'hill' (Brythonic: breg, Anglo Saxon hyll). The prefix 'Bow' comes from an Anglo Saxon personal name, Bolla.
The village e-group (hosted by Yahoo! Groups) provides an electronic platform for community discussions. It is used for a variety of purposes: Neighbourhood watch messages, announcing village events, disposing of unwanted household items, discussing village matters...the possibilities are endless.

Reports from residents of Church Road of sewerage odours had apparently been tackled by Anglian Water but it could be that they have simply shifted the problem further down the hill for, at time of writing this report, residents contacting me on Station Road complaining of the same unpleasant problem! Find out more here.
Apart from the ongoing road safety work undertaken this year in the centre of the village and the general ongoing concerns about speeding traffic and heavy lorries passing through the village, the only highway issue I am currently aware of is the return of the flooding on the bad bend on the Woburn Sands road. The Council have been using specialist high pressure jetting equipment coming and I hope that may have cured the problem.
The new officer for our area is PC 1285 Jason Rowe will be based at the Kingston office from 2nd April 2012. Click here for contact details.
