Im sorry to say we found a tabby cat in the road last night on Churchway (northern end between number 96 and 98), He has sadly been run over and killed. I'll contact the council by the end of the day, but if you know someone missing a cat please pass on the message, thank you.

Does anybody know if the museum has or will, produce a 2019 calendar?
When and where will they be available to purchase?
Editor's comment: Reply from Alan Rose on behalf of the Museum Trust:
Yes, we do have a calendar available now. The photos were taken by Haddenham & Witchert WI and Haddenham Museum. Price is £4 for members, £5 for non-members. Envelopes sold separately at the museum but the calendars fit into an A4 envelope for posting at the ordinary large letter rate. Presently selling at the museum but hope to stock elsewhere soon. They will also be available at the Horticultural Show in the VH on Saturday 1st September.
Found black bag corner of the Clays on Rosemary Lane, please phone 292920 if this is yours
Stanbridge Road resurfacing. It is understood that this should be finished today, Friday 17th August, as originally scheduled.
Thame Road: surface dressing works, as part of the Capital Maintenance Programme, between the Haddenham Station and Scotsgrove on the A418. This requires a road closure: permission has been granted for this to be in place between Monday 20th and Tuesday 28th August. The actual start date cannot be confirmed, but when the road is closed access for residents and businesses will be allowed. It seems likely that there will not be any overnight working.
The Green Dragon is in one of its regular 'shut awaiting new tenant' phases. Would it be possible to buy this pub from Enterprise who seem incapable of providing a working agreement to anybody? The Seven Stars at Dinton is run as a community project and is very successful. Haddenham has a much larger potential market and yet we have no success in keeping this pub open.
Regarding the area around Clay Corner, the website roadworks.org indicates that during July and August there will be (1) Work on zig-zag line markings near the school in Woodways. Traffic lights will be in operation. (2) New water mains installed in the area. Traffic lights will be in operation in the area — Stanbridge Road, Woodways and Lower Road. (3) Some "CMP — carriageway reconstruction" will be done. It is unclear exactly where this will necessitate a road closure, although it certainly seems that this will be in place for part of the time between 30th July and 17th August near Clay Corner.

Posted on behalf of a local parent:
I am a working mum of one toddler (Noah 2.5 years old) and expecting another early August and run a business from home.
So would love some help with cleaning, washing, ironing and maybe cooking the odd meal but this isn't essential.
We live in Haddenham village and days/hours can be flexible depending on the person.
My number is 07812 192 723 to call to discuss.
Found in the road on Churchway — perhaps fell out of someone's pocket when cycling?
Has two names on a plastic yellow keyring, if you can tell me what they are you can have it!
Text me on 07810 384469
I've just spoken to some blokes who are digging up the surface laid by Thames Water after they dug up Church End and Station Road.
Some wonk from AVDC apparently thought the surface laid by Thames Water wasn't good enough (when it was a darn sight better than the surface surrounding it) so these other guys laid something substantially worse.
What's really galling is that the new re-surfacers are instructed to studiously avoid filling in the craters pock-marking the surface laid presumably by AVDC.
Is our local council incompetent or just corrupt? Answers on a postcard please.
