Parish Helpline Still Open

As cases of coronavirus are rising around the country once more, we would like to remind you the Parish Helpline is still open to those who need help with accessing groceries/ medication whilst self-isolating.

We are fortunate to have many wonderful volunteers in Haddenham, so please don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it!

For help, please contact us on help@haddenham-bucks-pc.gov.uk. Those without internet access can call 07760 458079. Please leave a message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. To help us deal with requests as efficiently as possible, please use the email address if you are able to do so, including ‘Help’ as the subject title.

Please bear in mind we are not an emergency service - contact 999 in the event of an emergency.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have volunteered to help and have provided assistance within the community so far. We are very lucky to have the help of so many community-minded people within the village! 

If you need to contact the Parish Council about other matters, please use clerk@haddenham-bucks-pc.gov.uk

Ian Chalk
Tribute to Ian Chalk

It was with great sadness that the Parish Council learned of the passing of Ian Chalk on 29th August 2020. A resident of Haddenham for 60 years, Ian served as a Haddenham Parish Councillor and was Chairman between 1965-74.

A small family service was held at the Chiltern Crematorium in Amersham on 18th September. Ian's family plan to hold a larger Service of Thanksgiving in Haddenham at a later date and have asked anyone  who wishes to honour Ian’s life to send donations c/o FJ Wilson Funeral Directors, Greenway, Haddenham, HP17 8BJ. The proceeds will be donated to the Haddenham Parish Charities and Parkinsons UK.

A Polite Reminder to Avoid Parking on Grass Verges
We would like to ask all readers to help keep our village looking its best and to please avoid parking on grass verges. Parking on grass verges, particularly during Winter, can leave the ground churned and muddy, which is unpleasant for near-by residents.  We receive numerous complaints about this topic, so please be considerate and park on the road where safe to do so.

Haddenham Hamper Continues to Grow!

Haddenham Hamper continues to expand and now includes 10 local retailers! We're pleased to welcome new additions: Tickety Brew, Mad Hatter's Pop Up Party Shop, Moore Champagne and Flossy's Logs to the site.

The Haddenham Hamper website has been set up by the Parish Council to help residents place orders with retailers in the local area by providing information about local shops and what they have on offer in a single place.

To see what is available and help support our local businesses, why not visit the Haddenham Hamper website now?

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the volunteers involved in setting up the website. A big thank you to David Bevan, Ian Bull, Jonathan Hook, John Rowlands, Iain Wilcox, David O’Hanlon and Jim Brown for all their hard work, and to Sam McMahon of Snapper Media who was commissioned to build and maintain the site. 

Any retailers who wish to be included on the website should contact the Parish Council on clerk@haddenham-bucks-pc.gov.uk

Haddenham Educational Charity Grant

On behalf of Haddenham Educational Charity, we are pleased to announce that it has been able to award a grant to all those who applied this year. Eighteen applications were received from residents, ranging from those still at school to mature students looking to return to education.

Well done to all those who received a grant and best of luck with your studies!

Village Hall Refurbishment Update

The work to remove asbestos from the Village Hall has now been completed and the next stage of work will focus on urgent repairs to the flat roof. The roof repairs should be complete by the end of October and, we hope, before the worst of the winter weather comes our way!  

Prior to work beginning, we were able to find a home for much of the no-longer-needed furniture from the former Day Care Centre. Many of the chairs found their way into the living rooms of local residents or were collected by the Sue Ryder Foundation.

NHS Covid-19 App

The new NHS COVID-19 app launched on 24th September. The app works on an anonymous basis – it tracks the virus, not the user, and has been designed to support the Test and Trace system. 

The app provides the following functions:

  • Alerts if you’ve been near another user who’s tested positive for coronavirus.
  • Ability to log symptoms
  • Ability to book a test if you need one
  • Advice on whether you need to isolate if you’ve got symptoms or have been in contact with someone who’s tested positive.

If you haven't already done so, please download the app to help control the spread of the virus by visiting www.covid19.nhs.uk.

Meetings and Minutes:
All upcoming meetings will be held remotely by zoom.
