St Mary's Church, Thame

Several Haddenham residents are feeling rather prickly about the number of road signs that have suddenly sprouted up around the village pointing to Tiggywinkles. A number have written to the Parish Council to complain.
While active steps are currently underway to reduce the number of unnecessary poles and other roadside clutter, it seems that pointing the way to the local animal hospital takes precedence.
One resident was particularly aggrieved: "I feel very annoyed that Highways (presumably) have allowed such a proliferation of signs for Tiggywinkles. I have counted 12 or 13 such signs. We are told that it is important to minimise the number of signs for road safety and over concern that they 'urbanise' the rural environment. If, say, the shops, churches, Snakemoor, the museum and other significant places in Haddenham all put up signs, what a visual mess that would be".
"I hope that other local residents will join the growing group that are in the process of writing to the Parish Council seeking to reverse this decision!"
Another villager commented that "a calm discourse would be good and this is probably best achieved by identifying exactly what signage has been erected, clearly marking those locations on a suitable map, and informing Bucks County Council about the signs which appear to be superfluous."
