Church End Phone Box

The Parish Council and 'Heartbeat Haddenham' are seeking sites to locate publicly accessible defibrillators in the village.

One possibility is for the Parish Council to "adopt" the Church End phone box, a listed building still in operational use by BT. There are examples elsewhere of BT phone boxes being used in this way.

It would mean the phone box being de-commissioned and the telephone equipment removed before transferring ownership to the Parish Council.

BT tell us that just nine calls were made in the past year from this box.

The Parish Council is keen to hear your views on whether to take this idea forward. Please contact the Parish Clerk with any comments:

Just make sure you have your mobile with you, so you can telephone for the emergency code to unlock the defibrillator!

There are some things we can take for granted at Aperitif Recitals and they are that the wine, soft drinks and canap├ęs will be excellent but especially so will be the music. Peter Shepherd, the twenty three year old organist of the Collegiate Church of St Bride Glasgow, lived up to expectations during his recital at St Mary's Church on 18th October when he performed an attractive mixture...
