Thank you for introducing me to Haddenham.net!
My name is Mariangeles Ordaz Romay, I have just arrived from Spain and I would like to organise some groups with people interested on learning Spanish, practice Spanish or to know more about Spanish culture. If you are interested, please contact me.
Here's my email:
Would any of you be interested in Spanish classes?
I am considering creating a group for adults and another one for small children. I have experience teaching languages to professionals, university students, managers in corporations and adults who just want to learn. My group for small children would be to teach them songs and games in Spanish. Children learn a language easily when they are playing and enjoying themselves.

Hi there. Has anyone lost a baby Tortoise (I think).
We found one walking along the footpath behind Willis Road towards the Garden Centre. Alongside where the new houses are being built.
He/she is about 10cm long with a fetching metalic pink circle painted on it's shell.
Terence (temporary name) is safe and well and enjoying some fresh salad leaves.
Please call 07834916656 if you are missing the shelled one.
This is just a flag from a concerned resident.
Driving out of Haddenham towards Thame this morning (Sat 18th May) and suddenly BANG! BANG!
Two eggs would you believe it, thrown at us from the car going the other direction. They were incredibly loud and covered the bonnet and windscreen. Combined speeds meant that they've actually damaged the paintwork on the bonnet.
Silly little boys playing silly little games that one day might kill someone. As it is I don't know how much this is going to cost to repair the paintwork.
So, please beware, and if anyone knows anyone who thinks this is funny, please tell them it really isn't.
From Monday 29 April for about 3 days, as below
BUCKINGHAMSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL has made an Order, which will temporarily prohibit any vehicle from proceeding, EXCEPT FOR ACCESS, ("in that length of Gibson Lane, Haddenham, which continues for a distance of approximately 41 metres").
The alternative route for vehicles affected by the closure will be via Churchway, Station Road, The Croft, Crabtree Road.
The closure is required whilst Thames Water works take place at 15 GIBSON LANE and it is anticipated that the works will commence on 29 April 2019 and will take approximately3 days between 00:00 and 23:59 each day to complete.

Just to say that, as reported elsewhere, the bus stop for the 280 from Aylesbury to Oxford on the playing fields side in Woodways is suspended while the gas main is being renewed. SGN (gas mains work) and Transport for Bucks both confirm that this is what Arriva have agreed to do. They are also supposed to have told the drivers not to stop there, and put clear information at that bus stop that it is not to be used. But some buses are still stopping there. So, if you are going on the 280 towards Oxford you need to board the bus either at the Stanbridge Road stop, or at the Fort End stop.
Buses to Aylesbury (on the Junior School side) will still be stopping on that side in the lay-by as normal.
What a backward step this is. The closure of the recycling centre two days a week and permanent closure of Bledlow will undoubtedly lengthen the already, at times, not inconsiderable queue for entry. Furthermore if an operative has to assess a charge and payment subsequently made, that in itself will also lengthen the turnaround time.
They say there will be no or little affect on fly-tipping. I think this is wishful thinking. In any event they will have the money from charges to fund the clearing the countryside of dumped rubbish.
Yes, it is very sad that, on occasions, someone removes posters which are for a specific event. For some years I have taken down posters, but not until after an event that has been held. Fairly recently I was told that the Parish Council has said that they do not have an issue with posters that are on telegraph posts, or elsewhere. Nonetheless, while that applies to posters for charities, etcetera, which are based in the village, or have a village connection, including those for events outside the village, they may well take a contrary view if the event is commercial.
I gave two talks in February at the Village Hall on "Stories of a Tour Guide of the D-Day Landing Beaches" in support of the Haddenham Syrian Family Project. Of the 15 laminated posters used to advertise the event, only 1 survived by the time the talks were delivered. Such mindlessness is a desecration to those who strive to do good in the community. Michael Phillips.
I write as a member of a small group supporting Florence Nightingale Hospice. To advertise our events and attract customers one major method of advertising other than Web Radio and local outlets/publications is Posters on suitable visual structures such as phone poles.
As others we spend time and money designing printing laminating annd then displaying. Unfortunately there are those in the village who do not agree with our objectives and who remove/steal our posters, so reducing our ability to fund the Hospice. I despair, any comments on who they may be? or will they speak up? your comments please.
Had call yesterday from very plausible man claiming to be from AVDC and advising that I was due a refund from the council.He was so good that I was nearly taken in. When he eventually asked for my bank sort code and account number I said NO. He continued by saying that this was only for refunds and that my direct debit was for charges. He was good. When I continued to say NO he said the alternative was to go to the council offices and fill in lots of forms and that this would take three to four weeks. Goodness I nearly gave in. Glad I didn't. This was one of many such calls and I hope that no one has been caught.

Also anyone who has stopped getting NHW emails as they have changed their email address please let me know.

I went for a walk down green lane today the first time since it was supposed to be tarmaced. I thought it would be a nice clean walk but to my surprise the road consisted of mud gravel and pot holes. Where is the. Tarmac? I couldn't walk on the grass as there was a lot of dogs mess on the grass verge. I thought a lot of money was spent to make Green Lane into a nice walking and cycling road.
Editor's comment: The first 50 metres comprise the original farm access route. You didn't walk far enough! The newly widened and surfaced section begins a little further in from Stanbridge Rd
Please check your garage and shed. Lost from friends house in Roberts Road on 31st Jan. Thankyou
