Vehicle Theft in Cuddington Today
Today, a courier driver had his van stolen whilst delivering to a house on Bridgeway. He had left the engine running while he removed the parcel from the side door of the van. As he was doing this, the robber jumped into the van and drove off.
It is probable that he was being followed in a car by the thieves just waiting for the opportunity. Unfortunately for the driver, his mobile phone was in the vehicle, as was a van full of parcels to be delivered.
The vehicle was unmarked, a plain white Transit-sized van. If you saw anything, please contact the police on the non-emergency number 101.
Children’s Playground Update
Works to the wind damaged fence in the children’s playground is complete and the playground is now fully enclosed with a new fence and posts. Time to enjoy the sunshine!

Floods on Winchendon Drive
Myles Saker has kindly sent us these photos of the drive down to Nether Winchendon. Possibly the worst flooding here in around half a century.
Following the introduction of the household recycling collection service in 2012, Aylesbury Vale District Council will be removing any remaining recycling banks they manage from across the district.
There are currently over 80 sites but the one's most likey to affect Cuddington include those located in Haddenham (Village Hall and Garden Centre) and Chearsley (The Bell PH).
Residents can disposal of excess recycling that doesn't fit in their household recycling bin at their local Household Waste and Recycling Centre.
Building Work at School
Some much-needed work is being done on the Infant site to upgrade the children’s toilets, which are proving inadequate for the numbers we now have on the site.
There will be occasions when our builders will need loading access to the premises and therefore have to park vehicles outside the school.
They will be as considerate as possible and we do hope this won’t cause too much inconvenience. We will do our best to keep you updated on progress and it could take us into the Easter Holidays.
Thank you for your understanding.
Sunday 2nd February: This afternoon we are ringing a quarter peal between 4.30 and 5.30 to join in the celebrations of Hal and Becky, bellringers who used to ring with us at Cuddington and were married at Knowle yesterday.
