Stanbridge Road resurfacing. It is understood that this should be finished today, Friday 17th August, as originally scheduled.
Thame Road: surface dressing works, as part of the Capital Maintenance Programme, between the Haddenham Station and Scotsgrove on the A418. This requires a road closure: permission has been granted for this to be in place between Monday 20th and Tuesday 28th August. The actual start date cannot be confirmed, but when the road is closed access for residents and businesses will be allowed. It seems likely that there will not be any overnight working.
The Green Dragon is in one of its regular 'shut awaiting new tenant' phases. Would it be possible to buy this pub from Enterprise who seem incapable of providing a working agreement to anybody? The Seven Stars at Dinton is run as a community project and is very successful. Haddenham has a much larger potential market and yet we have no success in keeping this pub open.
Regarding the area around Clay Corner, the website roadworks.org indicates that during July and August there will be (1) Work on zig-zag line markings near the school in Woodways. Traffic lights will be in operation. (2) New water mains installed in the area. Traffic lights will be in operation in the area — Stanbridge Road, Woodways and Lower Road. (3) Some "CMP — carriageway reconstruction" will be done. It is unclear exactly where this will necessitate a road closure, although it certainly seems that this will be in place for part of the time between 30th July and 17th August near Clay Corner.

Posted on behalf of a local parent:
I am a working mum of one toddler (Noah 2.5 years old) and expecting another early August and run a business from home.
So would love some help with cleaning, washing, ironing and maybe cooking the odd meal but this isn't essential.
We live in Haddenham village and days/hours can be flexible depending on the person.
My number is 07812 192 723 to call to discuss.
Found in the road on Churchway — perhaps fell out of someone's pocket when cycling?
Has two names on a plastic yellow keyring, if you can tell me what they are you can have it!
Text me on 07810 384469
I've just spoken to some blokes who are digging up the surface laid by Thames Water after they dug up Church End and Station Road.
Some wonk from AVDC apparently thought the surface laid by Thames Water wasn't good enough (when it was a darn sight better than the surface surrounding it) so these other guys laid something substantially worse.
What's really galling is that the new re-surfacers are instructed to studiously avoid filling in the craters pock-marking the surface laid presumably by AVDC.
Is our local council incompetent or just corrupt? Answers on a postcard please.

There have been different reports concerning the UK Power Networks (UKPN) work locally. Those reports are based on information from Transport for Bucks.
The following has been received today from UKPN, based on a report from the team who are actually doing the work.
"Afternoon Peter,.please see the below updated information further to your earlier call, thanks, Simon, UKPN Press Office."
" We are installing underground electricity cables at Aylesbury Road in Haddenham to upgrade power supplies for local homes and businesses. We are doing all we can to complete the work. We plan to remove the temporary traffic lights later this afternoon (May 4) and aim to finish the project by next Friday (May 11). We apologise for any inconvenience caused."

Haddenham.net was launched in its present format almost six years ago. During that time the 'Share & Chat' section has provided a means for Haddenham residents to express their opinions and concerns about local matters. This platform preceded the availability of widely-used local Facebook pages which now tend to offer much quicker opportunities for the exchange of views.
Haddenham.net's Editorial Advisory Group has considered deleting the 'Share & Chat' section, but recognises that there is still a significant group of folk who prefer not to use Facebook...
