I have noticed that significant work is being carried out at Haddenham Post Office. Who commissioned it and who is paying for It?
I hope that the new production will not feature the character with a stammer. For many people with a stammer the condition is a serious, socially-debilitating problem. Stammering should never be used as a source of cheap laughs.
The ATM machine was broken into at the weekend.

Four men have used a car, a truck and then caused an explosion, to steal from a cash point in Buckinghamshire. ( Longwick Garage)
Driving past the Longwick garage yesterday morning I noticed it was 'taped up'. It has been closed for some time for refurbishment of some kind but this was Police tape. On my way back to Haddenham I managed to get another look and it seemed like a hurricane had been through the forecourt. Does anybody know what went on?
I would also like to see the homecoming of the Kebab van; ideally positioned at Fort End.
I have been told that the village once had a reliable Doner Kebab van; what happened to it? I for one would support the idea of getting this service back — great late night eats after the pubs close.
Lost stolen or strayed!
One Kohla walking pole, if found please call 291866.
Congratulations to all the staff at the medical centre on their two awards.
Please could I suggest that more people attend the Patient Participation Group meetings (always well advertised on this website) to learn more and then stop complaining!
Parents, PLEASE take a look at 'Chalkys' link to Childrens Centres.
Your input could help Haddenham retain rather than close it down completely.
The old Red Cross rooms have so much potential as does the rest of the village hall. Its huge, central and convenient for the many villages in the area. New houses means more children.
Lets try and keep it in Haddenham and by reading and responding to the consultation we may be able to save it and who knows, get some much needed funding for our Village Hall.
Can't help but think how wonderful that would be!
I'm searching for someone called 'Mr C Keen'. He's been recommended to me for some gardening work, and I'm struggling to find an up-to-date contact number. If anyone has heard of him locally please can you supply a telephone number or email address.
Bucks CC is proposing to close Haddenham's Children's Centre as well as the other 34 based throughout the county and replacing them all with a new Early Help Service. Again, it is to do with money (lack of) so it is important that residents give feedback to BCC, especially as the village and surrounding area grows. See the survey
Not many people know about ITP (Immune thrombocytopenia).
A few adults & children in the village may have been diagnosed with this.
It has no respect for age.

Used the Fish & Chip shop yesterday (Friday) evening for the first time since it reopened. Best I've ever had by far from anywhere, not surprised there was such a long queue.
Editor's comment: That's good to hear!
Yes, saw one in the garden a couple of weeks ago, beautiful moth, but they move so quickly it is hard to get a proper look
I put up an A4 sized poster on the telegraph pole opposite the House of Spice last night and I find it has been removed this morning. The poster was to promote women's taster sessions at Whiteleaf golf club. I know this is technically 'fly posting' so should we ask somebody before putting up a poster or do we have an anti-golf vigilante in the village?
Editor's comment: You need to speak with the Clerk of the parish council, Sue Gilbert. There is a policy to remove posters advertising events other than in Haddenham or the immediate hamlets/villages
Paullo and Anna took over Smarts Fish and Chip shop about a month ago but have been waiting all that time to have a new landline installed. Their new number is 01844 698611.
By the way, I am told that the fish and chips are delicious.
