New Cycle Stands at Fort End & Woodways

Haddenham Beer Festival has paid for 10 new cycle stands for the village. The Parish Council, assisted by the Safe Walking and Cycling Group, has placed them in pairs outside the Scout Hut and near the bus stops at Fort End and Woodways. The last stands will be put outside the doors of the chemist and Health Centre.

This means that bus users can leave their bikes locked and then cycle home from the bus stop on their return. There is no longer an excuse for driving to Little Italy and parking at Fort End, for cycling there will be so much more pleasant and better for your health. Dr Munir welcomes better cycling facilities for patients and intends to use them himself. At the Scout Hut younger members of the village will be able to get the cycling habit.

The Safe Cycling & Walking Group have been campaigning for years to make Haddenham fit for cyclists. This is the latest step towards turning Haddenham into a cyclists' village, where parents are not afraid to let their children cycle to school, where senior citizens can take up cycling again and we can all cycle for pleasure and for our health. Now we have these new facilities, why not get back on your bike?

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.
