Librarian 02

The process of spinning the village library off from full management and staffing by Bucks County Council continues to move forward, and an important next step is for volunteer counter staff to be recruited.

Anyone wishing to help 'on the counter' will be asked to provide the names of two referees. BCC will then allocate a password for volunteers to login to the self-directed Spydus training (Spydus is Bucks County Council's library IT system).

Volunteers need to work through an online information /questionnaire document. When this is successfully completed, library support staff will create and email a login to Spydus. Volunteers will then be invited to attend a morning session of briefing and familiarisation at Amersham, Hazlemere or Princes Risborough library. These sessions will be offered at Haddenham, As soon as possible and when the staffing is known. This will complete the basic library counter work training. Higher level training will also be available for those wishing to specialise in some aspect of library work.

Local co-ordinator and Parish Councillor, Steve Sharp, says it would be great if anyone would like to help by acting as a co-ordinator of volunteers, helping in due course with the rota and liaising with the staff — please don't be shy! Contact him on 290597 or email stephsharp@aol.com if you think you might be able to help.

The Turn End Trust is presenting a unique film for its first public showing on Thursday evening 31st August, at the Youth & Community Centre. Filmed through all four seasons, Turn End captures how architect Peter Aldington masterly designed the houses and garden as one, making the garden a natural extension to the house. It goes right to the heart of the controversy of what is desirable housing...
