Haddenham & District Rotary volunteers were quick to respond the call to spruce-up the telephone box at the southern end of Churchway, in support of Haddenham's 'Best Kept Village' entry.

While at it, they also took it upon themselves to carry out some maintenance and rejuvenation work on a couple of benches that Rotary donated at the edge of Church End pond a few years ago.

Doubtless, given the dreadful "Summer" weather we've been enduring this month, the working team will be ducking and diving between the showers and thunderstorms, but do keep an eye out for significant upgrades to the visual appearance of the 'phone box and bench seats in Church End in the coming days.

Our grateful thanks to Rotary and their band of local volunteers — pictured left to right with the phonebox are Rotarians Martin Andrew, Tim Mahoney, Peter Duckworth and Alan Dichler, with David Rankin looking after the bench renovations.
