A handy guide, putting information about Buckinghamshire’s essential services at the fingertips of every resident, is being delivered free to 209,000 households across the county.

Delivery of the booklet starts on Monday and should be complete within a fortnight.

The Buckinghamshire County Council guide, called ‘I Want to Contact...’ - contains a list of more than 80 essential services and ways to contact them.

Information has been provided by the county council and health, police, fire service and district council services.

Deputy county council leader Mike Appleyard said: “This a great little booklet.

“Whether you want to find out about recycling, report a pothole, apply for a school, or need information about visiting one of our fantastic country parks, or a leisure and sport centre near you, you should find it in here.”

The 36 page guide cost the council around £33,000 to produce and deliver – equivalent to 16p per copy.

The guide features discount vouchers on outings, activities and products.

It also provides residents with helpful information, phone numbers, website addresses, and options to explore using smartphone QR (Quick Response) codes and social media.

Additional copies are available free through libraries and GP surgeries.
