Parish Council Meetings

Just a quick reminder to all ... at the last meeting of the Parish Council, Councillors agreed to move the monthly meeting to the second Monday of each month.  Tonight’s meeting has therefore been rescheduled to Monday 13th July at 7.30pm in Cuddington and Dinton School – infant site.

This meeting is a public meeting.  Please come along.

 

Fancy Dress Competition Announced

This year’s fete theme is ‘Around the World’ and so we are asking you to find a costume that embodies/represents a country.  Interpret this as you will: dress as a giant leek, don a New Zealand rugby kit, dig out your much loved flamenco dress and be on the lower green by 2pm on Fete Day for a seat on the tractor’s trailer as we parade to the Bernard Hall.

Matt Brown (Heart FM DJ and children's book writer) will then decide who has best fulfilled the brief!  The competition is open to young and old alike and much coveted fete passports (giving free access to many stalls) will be awarded to the winners in each age category.  Be in it to win it!

 

Floats for Fete Stalls

Hi Folks

Only 2 weeks to go now until we fly around the world for the Cuddington Fete. If you are a stall holder, it's getting near the time you need to start thinking about whether you would like us to prepare a cash float for you.

All you need to do is visit the shop, tell us your requirement in notes and coins and we will prepare the floats for collection on a day and time that suits you.

It is our busiest day of the year, so we are unable to prepare floats ON Fete Day, so please plan ahead and get your requirements in soon.

Thanks

John  

 

New Shop Window UPDATE

The new shop window is now being fitted a week earlier than planned and the work now starts TOMORROW,Tuesday 30 June.

Please be aware there may be some minor disruption to the shop and the footpath immediately outside the shop will be closed off to allow safe working for the carpenters and protect you, the public, from possible accidents or injury from their tools and glass.

Ruby Small Sunrise Walk

Despatch from the Observatory – 20 June 2015

Twelve intrepid souls set off from the Lower Green at 4 am this morning on the Ruby Small Sunrise Walk. Forty five minutes later, we arrived at the top of Winchendon Hill for a welcome cup and homemade biscuits provided by Sherry and her team at the Observatory.

The clouds parted; at sunrise a reddish sun shone clearly for us for a few minutes before once again being hidden. The quiet beauty of Aylesbury Vale spread out before us, with our village tucked up peacefully in the trees.

The walk back is downhill, helpful at that stage to this older fellow; home at 6am having walked 3.69 miles, 10668 steps.

Our thanks to Liz Davies and the Sunshine Club for arranging the Walk, and to the farmers for looking after the footpaths. 

Long may the tradition last.

Christian Aid 2015

Another successful year for Christian Aid in Cuddington with a total of £1,367 being donated by the village.  The bulk of this, £898, was from house-to-house collections and this represents some £4 per household.

In addition the traditional Bring and Buy and Plant Sale contributed £333 and this was a 5% increase on last year.  The evening, held at Angela and Charles Sanderson’s house, was a great success and we were blessed by the weather – recent years have frequently been cold and wet (or both) but this year it was a lovely summer’s evening.

In addition notable contributions came from the school and from the church collection.

Many thanks to all who contributed, to all the helpers and also to the Sandersons for organising the Bring and Buy and Plant Sale at their house.

This total did not include the donations at the May Day Madrigals at the top of the church tower, as this year this amount, £266, was paid direct to the Christian Aid Nepal appeal.
