As regular visitors to the Haddenham.net Facebook page will be aware, the parish council recently invited local residents to suggest road names for the new Dandara (Glebe/Aston Road) development .
Suggestions came thick and fast, and included names based on such local links as:
- Former Vicars
- Church Seasons
- Peasant family names from 1820 map of village
- Original Residents of Willis Rd
- Local Wildlife & Tiggywinkles
- Local Flora
- WW1 Village Heroes
- Local Noteworthies — conservationists, doctors, scoutmasters, woodcarvers, etc
- Recognition of the Saxon Burial Site
- Various Tongue-in-cheek Suggestions
As we understand it, members of the parish council will each vote on their preferred names, and a shortlist will then be presented to the relevant District or County Council authorities for final approval.
A full list of the suggested names can be seen on the PDF located below the images on this page.
