Last Chance to Feature in the Updated Haddenham Village Guide!

We're currently in the process of updating the village guide, last published in 2019.

The guide contains lots of useful information on Haddenham, including the contact details for local groups and businesses. It is produced and paid for by the Parish Council and is delivered to all properties within Haddenham.

If you're part of a village group or organisation that would like to be included in the village guide, then please contact assistantclerk@haddenham-bucks-pc.gov.uk with a brief summary of the group, meeting times and contact details. 

Please check with other group members prior to contacting us to prevent multiple requests for inclusion from the same group.

There is no charge for local groups to include information within the guide. Businesses looking to take advertisements will be contacted separately. 
New playground fort in Woodways
Woodways Playground Refurbishment

We're very pleased to say that work to refurbish the playground has been completed and the playground was re-opened in time for half term!

There is lots of new and exciting equipment for younger residents to enjoy, including a wooden fort complete with climbing wall, slide and bridges, an accessible junior play unit, and a rope snake swing. There is also a new goal wall, featuring a basketball hoop and cricket stumps, as well as a netball post.  

The zip-wire, wheelchair swing and see-saw have been kept from the previous playground. 

The decision to refurbish the playground was made as much of the ageing wooden play equipment was beginning to show signs of wear. Now we hope that children will be able to safely enjoy the playground for many years to come!

Streetlights
 
Have you spotted a streetlight out around the village? 

Please let us know as soon as possible by reporting the location and number to office@haddenham-bucks-pc.gov.uk.

Repairing or replacing streetlights is specialist work and our streetlight contractor usually attends Haddenham on a monthly basis, so it may take some time for light to be repaired once it has been reported. 

The sooner we know about a problem, the sooner we can get it fixed!
