Held at St Mary's Church on 13th April, and organised by Sheilagh Armitt for Cancer Research, this 'Get Together' of 45 singers from as far afield as Banbury, proved most enjoyable for the singers at the afternoon rehearsal as it did too for the audience at the evening concert.

With works by Handel, Bach, Haydn and Vaughan Williams, the Conductor, Ian Westley with organist Colin Spinks, did great work bringing the Choir together during the short two hour rehearsal. The Soloists were Sheilagh Armitt and Stephen Hamnett, Senior Lay Clerk at Llandaff Cathedral who sings, not only with other Choirs in that area, but also as a Bass with 'Only Men Aloud'.

Despite such a short rehearsal time for these challenging works, the Concert was warmly received with many compliments by the audience as to the quality of sound attained.

Singers paid to attend and participate, and the day raised a total of £437 for Cancer Research UK

Serious concerns have been expressed about the apparent piecemeal approach that is being taken by developers, and the lack of evidence of any strategic planning by local government in terms of traffic management, school provision and other vital facilities. Here, Brian...

Road Works Signs
Haddenham Webteam: Mon 24 Jul 5:15pm

Two major roadworks schemes begin this week on key routes to Aylesbury. For the next two weeks works will take place under road closures at night, to minimise traffic disruption, on the A41 Aston Clinton Road and the A413 Buckingham Road. While the dual works will mean there will be two diversions in place at the same time, causing some delays for drivers, the diversions do not overlap at all...
