Summerfest 40

Haddenham Summerfest is only a few days away (Saturday 1st July) and the Trust is asking for your support once again to help make the event its usual fantastic success.

For 2017 the organisers have changed the arrangements slightly, so they no longer need volunteer support on the entrance. Instead the main focus is on finding help with serving the Ales, Craft Beer, Lager, Cider, Pimms and soft drinks. Changes will also be implemented to the Pimms preparation process to reduce the considerable effort on the day.

The 3-hour serving shifts last year were not received well, so this year the organising committee will be asking for only 2-hour shifts, please. Organisers find it relatively easy to satisfy the early shifts, but the later shifts are always a challenge. So, if volunteers can be flexible over timings, that would be very much appreciated.

Having decided on 2-hour shifts, the result is that more volunteers will be required, of course. So if you're inclined to help, please would you also invite friends, relatives, neighbours, acquaintances and work contacts! All volunteers gain free entrance to the event and the satisfaction of having made a significant contribution to a wonderful community event.

As well as on-the-day support, volunteers are also needed to set up beforehand and to help clear up afterwards. The key times for these activities are:

Thurs 29th June 4.00pm — 6.00pm
Fri 30th June 4.00pm — 6.00pm
Sun 2nd July 9.00am — 1.00pm

All offers of help gratefully received — please contact Peter Harris, Tel: 01844 213057 Mob: 07801 962040 or Email: prjj.harris@talktalk.net

Yesterday we published an article by Brian Fattorini highlighting his concerns over the apparent piecemeal growth of the village, as opportunistic developers submit uncoordinated planning applications and take advantage of the yet-to-be-finalised AVDC Local Plan. He also encouraged his fellow residents to submit their own comments and, to help them do so, he kindly provided details of relevant...

It will have escaped the attention of very few Haddenham residents that the village is undergoing major housing development. 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...
