“Golf is good ex­er­cise, very so­cial and can cost a lot less than peo­ple think.

“I would urge my con­stituents to try golf via the Na­tional Golf Month King­shill at 2pm and at The Court The­atre, in Sta­tion Road, Tring, at 6pm.

The play, spon­sored by Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care and sup­ported by Fin­ity, ex­plores the im­pact of early on­set de­men­tia on two con­trast­ing fam­i­lies.

It com­mu­ni­cates the ups and downs of life on the de­men­tia path­way over a num­ber of years.

Each re­sponds dif­fer­ently to the most au­then­tic in­spired cy­clists.

Rid­ers can en­ter as part of the Scan­nap­peal team with their own al­lot­ted

The Big Con­ver­sa­tion cof­fee morn­ing takes place tomorrow (Fri­day) from 10.30am-1pm. There will be spe­cial­ist will and pro­bate lawyers, fi­nan­cial ex­perts, care home providers and fu­neral di­rec­tors to share their wealth of knowl­edge and in­for­ma­tion.

Sharon He­sel­ton, pro­bate ex­ec­u­tive at B P Collins, said: “Talk­ing about be­com­ing ill and dy­ing can be very dif­fi­cult for fam­i­lies. We know from ex­pe­ri­ence that dis­cussing such is­sues and plan­ning for the fu­ture can save a great deal of heartache and start time for each dis­tance, or as in­di­vid­u­als.

There is no min­i­mum fundrais­ing or spon­sor­ship amount re­quired but rid­ers are asked to do­nate to Scan­nap­peal based on dis­tances cov­ered and com­ple­tion of the Full de­tails of all the events and how to en­ter can be found at www. chiltern­cy­clingfes­ti­val. com.

Whilst you do not need to be a BC mem­ber, you need to reg­is­ter your de­tails and state Team Scan­nap­peal as your club. we hope or­gan­is­ing this free event will go some way to help­ing peo­ple kick-start that con­ver­sa­tion.

“Writ­ing a will and putting in place a Last­ing Power of At­tor­ney are all things we should think about sooner rather than later. Our ex­perts have a great deal of ex­pe­ri­ence in this sec­tor and will be able to ex­plain why it’s so important make sure your loved ones are cared for in the way you, and they, wish when the time comes.”

She said the num­ber of fam­ily dis­putes and con­tested pro­bate cases is in­creas­ing all the time, and warns that the fi­nan­cial and emo­tional im­pli­ca­tions of on­go­ing le­gal ac­tion can far ex­ceed the cost of tak­ing pro­fes­sional le­gal ad­vice in the first place.
