Anyone know if any of the establishments in the village screening the Lions matches over the next three Saturday mornings?
I know a certain amount about the Ricketts family, and the Quakers and the burial ground. This post is simply to tell you that, once I am able to tell you of other contacts who might be able to help you better than I can, I will be in touch with you again. In the meantime would you like to email me on email@example.com, so that I can communicate more easily with you — or for you to ring me on 01844 291406.
Research shows that as many as 75% of people pay for professional wedding photography but for various reasons (budget, time, procrastination...) never get around to printing their photos or having an album made.
The best way to show off your photos to family and friends (and thank those who helped to make the day special) is to display these precious memories in an album.

You may be well aware that last week an 8" water main burst on the A418 at Kings Cross, at the junction with Churchway. Damage to the road surface necessitated renewal down to a depth of some five inches and some traffic diversions. Mostly in the northern and western parts of the village Thames Water customers lost their water supply for up to a day. On reconnection the water was sometimes brownish for a very short time, but it was still safe to drink.
While the work was being carried out there were traffic lights on the A418, and Churchway was closed, except for access, from the Banks Road junction up to Kings Cross. Those arrangements and the temporary re-routing of Arriva's 280 route had all ceased by noon today.
Can anyone help?
I use to visit relatives in the early 1960s they lived in a farmhouse in the village their names were Herbert & Nancy Ricketts. Herbert was a well known character within the village. I can remember there was a Quaker burial ground at the rear of the farmhouse and the family were Quakers. Can anyone tell me if the farmhouse is still standing and is the burial ground marked with a plaque? Are any of the family, Norman, Duncan, Robert and Doris still in the village?
There appears to be a problem with the mains water supply to Haddenham. I hear that there is a leak on the main supply on the A418.
Editor's comment: Sorry this was late appearing, good Sir. The information was thoroughly 'broadcast'' on Facebook, and I didn't see this posting until early evening. Apologies
I agree with Jowan. Tim Armitt has does an excellent job leading a committed and hard working team and, as a consequence, has ensured that our annual Fete is one of the primary village events of the year, alongside the beer festivals. Well done Tim!
Thank you Tim for all your hard work with the Fete, getting it moved to Church End has made it a great event for the Village.
We wish you and Sheilagh all the best for the future, we shall miss you both.
How I do appreciate our editor's frequent turn of phrase — for example, in NEWS, Scotsman pays a visit; and all those in his article "Ballet Star in Haddenham", including "I'll Fly For You" by a Spitfire.
Editor's comment: Some readers cringe at my attempts to lighten things, and tell me so! However, I will keep trying!
Hi, I am looking for a cleaner to do 4hrs a week including a small amount of ironing. Does anyone have any recommendations for an immediate start? Thanks
Editor's comment: Maybe worth posting on the Haddenham.net Facebook page too, if you use social media.
Does anybody know where I can collect some dark coloured containers, preferably 10-25 litres, for storing water, locally? They're only for holding water for passive solar greenhouse heating, so needn't be anything special. Many thanks, Paul.
None — join the Literary Club in Aylesbury, they have very refined clientele.

I too have no issue with any race, creed, religion or colour but I will not accept rudeness from anyone which is why I too voted with my feet many months ago.
Has anyone else had one of their bins go missing? Today, I've found our brown bin is missing and fear it has bin (!) stolen. Whilst I'm not on Facebook, I see from the Haddenham.net public page (24 May) a couple of others have had a bin stolen.

I have recently moved to the village and was considering utilizing one of the pubs — which one has a more refined clientele?
