As we announced in July, Haddenham has won the Pushman Cup in the Bucks Best Kept Village competition for 2015, for large villages with a population over 3,000. (Joint runners-up were Chalfont St Giles & Gerrards Cross).

On Saturday 12th September an official award ceremony was carried out by key members of the judging panel. The trophy was presented by Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Sir Henry Aubrey Fletcher and the certificate was presented by Richard Pushman, competition chairman and donor of the Pushman trophy that marked Haddenham's success.

In receiving the award, HPC Chairman Margaret Aston was keen to acknowledge the efforts of local residents and those who give their time to help with litter picks and other informal and voluntary contributions that help to keep Haddenham looking tidy and attractive.

She also paid a particular tribute to village handyman Jim Ayres and parish councillor John Wheeler, who are directly involved in village maintenance on a daily basis — John Wheeler in a totally voluntary capacity.

Pictured receiving the trophy is Margaret Aston. The larger group includes HPC Vice Chairman David Truesdale, Parish Councillor John Wheeler, AVDC Councillor Judy Brandis, and village handyman Jim Ayes.
