Haddenham Parish Council Launch Community Website

Haddenham Parish Council is pleased to announce the launch of the Haddenham Hamper website – ‘things you need from the people you know’.

The site has been designed to help local residents place orders (on-line or by phone) with retailers they know and trust in the local area by providing information about local shops and what they have on offer in a single place. The desire to shop locally became apparent during the lockdown and it is hoped that the website will encourage a sustainable long-term local shopping experience.

For retailers it provides an opportunity to add value for their existing customers and expand their customer base in the local area. The first retailers to join the site are: Bradmoor Farm, Blooming Fruity, The Cottage Bakery and Orchard View Farm. 
Any retailers who wish to be included on the website should contact the Parish Council via Sue Gilbert on clerk@haddenham-bucks-pc.gov.uk

Pond Maintenance

Work has been carried out at Banks Park pond and Rudds pond to improve the general condition of both.  As part of the clear up, overgrown vegetation and general debris has been removed. Some of the more unusual items to be taken out include a microwave and road signs!

Permissive Path alongside Station Road 
We are very pleased to confirm the permissive footpaths HAD/P22/1 & HAD/P22/2 (shown in blue) that run alongside Station Road can remain.

After discovering that the Natural England scheme, under which the paths were originally created, is no longer in existence, the landowner's daughter contacted the Parish Council with concerns that the status of the paths had changed. Both parties were very keen to make sure the well used route, forming an important link between rights of way on the Wychert Way circular walk around Haddenham, could remain. It has been particularly well used during the current lockdown restrictions and contributes to the health and well-being of the village.

After Cllr David Truesdale looked into the matter and contacted the Rights of Way team at Buckinghamshire Council, we were able to confirm that a simple agreement between the land owner and the Parish Council would be sufficient, which is now in place.

The paths are permissive which means they are not a right of way but are there by agreement with the land owner. To retain permissive status, new signs will be put up at the access points along the route by the Parish Council. We would like to thank Tom and his family, who own the land, for their generosity in allowing this access and ask those who use it to respect their property by sticking to the paths and keeping dogs on a lead to protect the growing crops and ground nesting birds.
