2016 Cuddington Fete needs your stuff!
Cuddington Village is once again preparing for their annual extravaganza which is the Village Fete. We are collecting almost anything you can think of (except electrical items), if you're having a clear out send your stuff our way – baskets, bottles, toys, soft toys, jigsaws, books, clothes, and all the usual bric-a-brac. Collection points this year include Denise’s, the village shop and 10 Bernard Close. You can also take toys direct to the Malthouse on the Lower Green and books can go to Wayside on Bridgeway.
If you haven’t helped on the day before but would like to give it a go I’d certainly like to hear from you. We still have a few orphan stalls without parents to look after them: the General Tombola, bric-a-brac and a few others....
Thanks everyone for all you help,

Donkey Meadow – Final Update
No more has been heard either by Nether Winchendon Parish Meeting or by those involved in Cuddington in this matter, and therefore it seems that Mr Spencer Bernard has not submitted a challenge to the ruling by the Inspector at the Public Inquiry.
The Claimed Route, which runs along the northern side of Donkey Meadow, close to the hedge, has now become a Public Footpath. This will be shown as such on a revised edition of a map of the footpaths and bridleways in our parish: this will be produced within the next few months, and will be posted on the Village Website and on the notice boards; copies will also be available in the Village Shop.
Gentle Exercise 60+ Class

Dog Stolen in Haddenham
A Haddenham vet reports that a dog has been stolen from a house in the village.
His advice is not to leave your dog alone at home if at all possible, to shut the curtains if the dog is to be indoors for a long period by itself, and to make extra sure that doors are locked.
Apparently, dog thieves follow you when out walking to see where you live, and then come back later. So if you happen to notice a car following you or acting strangely that you don't recognise, it might be worth making note of the number plate.
There are more details and advice for dog owners on the Haddenham.net website.
