  • Is parking going to be suspended close to the station on Thame Road over the duration of the upcoming roadworks? Passing through the roadworks that appeared at the Pegasus Way junction today, I can see traffic building up, at peak times, to either side of the traffic calming island near Sheerstock and beyond leading to chaos if parking is not prohibited.

  • Well said Jowan.
    It is about time we ALL contributed to this and I agree the village would be so much more attractive for everyone.
    We will then once again have a village to be proud of.

  • Isn't it time for us all to get back to having a pride in our village?
    Pick up after our dogs, and stop parking on and destroying all our grass verges, it would be a much more attractive village.
    Common on let's do it.

  • Is there a problem with the link to the jobs page? It says that the page doesn't exist or I don't have access.

    Editor's comment: I cannot reproduce the problem.
    Are you clicking on the JOBS tab while browsing this website, or have you found a link in an article or Facebook item?

7:38pmTiger on Muddy Feet
  • It's one of the joys of living in the country. Cobbles have been here for many a year and historically have not been too challenging.

    Perhaps it is a case of being careful when walking on uneven surfaces.

  • Every winter it seems users of the path between the top of Stockwell and the Barbers becomes a quagmire of mud. In the summer, it can often become overgrown and all throughout the year this short stretch of pathway appears to be the perfect place for ill mannered dog owners to demonstrate their selfishness by not picking up dog litter. The uneven cobbles, historic as they are, are arguably dangerous and last year I witnessed an elderly lady trip and hit her head on the cobbles causing a large swelling. I wonder when the parish council will invest in addressing these issues? With the increase in house numbers and the council tax rise over the past 5 years there should surely be some cash in the bank!

  • This comment was not meant to be snobbery and the initial statement was not aimed at council/ housing association tenants. This is for everyone.

10:16pmJOEK on Taxi Service to Heathrow
  • when do you need taxi to airport and when need picking up?

4:10pmNin on Awful
  • Marshy.... Not all council tenants park on the verges! snobery is not nice. Many home owners park on the verges. Maybe you should just move.

4:07pmNin on Residents
  • I have to park on the corner on the grass sometimes — the lazy school parents drive and park all along the road blocking cars in. I don't need to get on the path to get on the grass. I have not seen any mud on the pavements outside my home. Home owners also park on the verges when there is no where else to park.

  • Well done to the Haddenham Mummers on raising such a large sum for charity and to all who gave so generously.,

12:56pmChalky on Taxi Service to Heathrow
  • Sorry, I'm not on Facebook (though to like reading the Discussion page). Any recommendations on a reliable taxi service (for a family) to and from Heathrow? Whilst cost is a factor, reliability is just as important.

11:43amDicky Bird on Pegasus Way Nature Reserve
  • Despite all the developers assurances at the public meetings that the small nature reserve alongside Pegasus Way and the football pitches would be left untouched, all the trees and shrubs there have now been uprooted. They have not filled in the pond yet.
    It is clear that these planning public meetings are just a complete waste of time.

11:04ammarshy on Parking on Grass verges
  • I totally agree. Something needs to be done to stop this eyesore from getting any worse than it already is. Private home owners (maybe not all of them) do care about the mess and want this stopped.
    Anybody know who would be the best people to contact to raise a complaint.
    Do I start with the council or, if it is against the law, the police?

    Editor's comment: Apparently in is not against the law.
    I stand corrected — it is not illegal as such. Copy and paste the following into your web browser for more information:

9:58amRural Life on Parking on Grass verges
  • The grass verges in Roberts Road, Harts Road, Willis Road are utterly disgusting — the mud put onto the pavements from these cars means mud is tracked everywhere. If it is against the law why is the Housing Association saying they cannot tell their Tenants to stop turning path and grass into a mud bath & why are private home owners not caring what a mess it is and what it makes the road look like?

  • Why do people have to park and cut up the grass verges? Not only does this look unsightly after driving across the grass onto the paths there is mud everywhere. Have some people lost their respect for them selves other people and the community.

2:28pmJRB on Tythrop Honours
  • I read this morning that Chrissie Rucker (The White Company) and her husband Nicolas Wheeler (Charles Tyrwhitt Shirts) are to receive OBEs for their services to retail. Are these two individuals still the residents at Tythrop House?

    Editor's comment: The Kingsey Fete is held annually at Tythrop House "by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Wheeler".
