For those who may have missed announcements in the Bucks Herald and elsewhere, Haddenham Museum will be closed for the whole of January and February due to the difficulty, in cold weather, of heating it to a comfortable level for the stewards' stint of up to two and a half hours.
However, if you have visitors who have come from far away, please contact chairman Alan Rose on 01844 291004 or one of the other trustees and the museum can be opened specially for them.
Meanwhile, copies of the museum's 2014 calendar, with its paintings by 12 local artists, will remain on sale at the Londis (post office) store at the corner of Churchway/Rudds Lane and also at Blooming Fruity on Banks Parade.
