8:27amIvan Nellavanitch on Improving Local Engagement?
  • Cynthia's suggestion is a good one. Almost any way of engaging a broader group of residents with all the fine work that goes on in the background in this village of ours would be a good thing. I do get a little frustrated by those who are quick to moan about local issues, and utter that imortal phrase "why doesn't the Parish Council... (do this or that)?" The quickest and easiest solution would be to take responsibility oneself. Lots of community-centred activities are delivered by volunteers in Haddenham. Clubs and societies depend on such people. The recent litter-pick in the village was a perfect example of local residents getting up off their bottoms and contributing to the life of the village. Excellent stuff! We all prosper as a community through such actions.

  • The level of attendance at this year's Parish Council AGM was rather disappointing. What a wasted opportunity! Did our local residents even know it was being held? How about a new format for next year which would draw us all in? If every village organisation were asked to provide a poster about their activities over the past year, we would all have a reason to go and have a look. If no reports were read out, we would have time to ask more questions. If we were asked for our ideas, the Council would be able to use the imagination of the whole village in planning the future of Haddenham.

  • We are so fortunate in having such a beautiful village, but alas there are those who wish to disrupt this. This weekend some friends came to visit and were completely confused by the signs.
    This is not the first time they have been vandelised, perhaps they could they be put higher up or with a more permanent fixture.

9:25amColin Jeffrey on Scotgrove Toll House
  • I am looking for information on The Scotgrove Toll House, on the Aylesbury Road, where my Great Great Grandfather lived in 1861 with his wife, who was the toll collector. Can anyone tell me where it was located? Perhaps someone has some pictures? Does it still exist? If not, when was it demolished. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • As a couple looking to move to Haddenham, or the local area, we have found this resource really useful. It's just interesting to know what's going on and to find out about local groups and resources.
