Jim Hayward Memorial Bench
The bench to commemorate Jim Hayward’s long, dedicated service to the village has now been installed on the Upper Green. The inscription on the bench reads “In memory of Jim Hayward who spent his lifetime dedicated to Cuddington. 1931 - 2015”.
At the Parish Council meeting last October, it was unanimously agreed that a memorial bench would be a fitting tribute. The siting of the bench, on the Upper Green near the Best Kept Village sign, is in recognition of Jim’s key involvement with the Best Kept Village competition over many years.
A ceremony to mark the installation of the bench will be held shortly.
Public Footpath Route to Donkey Meadow
The path alongside the hedge in Donkey Meadow has now become a Public Footpath, but to access it from Cuddington, walkers should not use the open gateway just this side of Nether Winchendon Mill (Photo 1). The correct route is to use the stile in Photo 2, walk past the Mill, follow the path through the farm buildings to the rear of the house (Photo 3) and then turn right. There is a stile by the gate into Donkey Meadow (Photo 4).
Nether Winchendon Parish Meeting/Bucks County Council will be putting up signs to this effect in the near future.
Waste Bin Collection Day Changes
From the week beginning 6th June onwards, Cuddington’s recycling and waste collection day will change from Friday to Wednesday.
There is no change to the collection day for garden waste – this remains as every other Monday.
The new collection days are now listed online, at www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/find-your-bin-day

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,
