Dr Ian Paine Announcement

We are saddened to learn of the death of Dr Ian Paine, a popular and highly respected vet with the local Hampden Veterinary Practice.

Many tributes have been paid on the Haddenham.net Facebook page and elsewhere.

Sally Corfe's comments were typical:

"Ian was the kindest, nicest, most thoughtful of vets. He looked after us with such kindness and understanding when he had to put our very loved cat down a couple of months ago. Such a sad time and terrible shock for all who knew him. A huge loss! !!"

Diane Pusey offered this:

"Such very sad news, so was so kind and gentle to our dogs, and very caring to everyone. Condolences to his family."

For those who would like to record a personal tribute, but would rather not do so through social media, we understand that there is a book of condolences available at the vet's practice in Haddenham as well as at the Hampden Veterinary Hospital, in Anchor Lane, Aylesbury.
