The school managed to choose the hottest day of the year (last Friday) to have a day of Seaside Fun – or was that just good planning?!!
All classes took part in various activities with a seaside theme – ending up with a fish and chip lunch.

Witchert Chorale Concert
Nearly 100 people turned up for the Flora & Fauna concert in St. Nicholas’ Church on Saturday June 28th which celebrated the beauty of nature with a variety of music of madrigals, classical and romantic part-songs etc.
A very lively and enthusiastic performance by the choir was enhanced by readings from Ed Cairns and a clarinet solo by Benedict Quinn. Wine and nibbles provided a much enjoyable social interlude at half-time.
The handsome proceeds of £1376 have been donated to the Tongabezi Trust School in Zambia.
See opposite for photographs.
The Witchert Chorale every year celebrate May Day by singing madrigals from the top of the church tower.
It was a perfect afternoon for the Infants’ Sports Day today.
There was plenty to cheer about and there was a great turn out of Mums and Dads to offer totally impartial support!
The afternoon was organised by the school’s sports partners, Ignitesport, and included all of our favourite races.
Scannappeal Open Garden 11th June
The Open Garden at The Old Rectory for Scannappeal raised a tremendous £1,500. The proceeds will go towards the Cancer Fighting Fund project at Stoke Mandeville Hospital which is for specialist equipment to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer of the digestive tract.
A big thank you to everyone who supported this important cause.
Christian Aid 2014
Once again Cuddington has shown its tremendous support for the annual Christian Aid appeal, and has produced a grand total of £1,413.86. Details of the amounts received are:
In addition Gift Aid Vouchers to the value of £392.91 will enable this amount to be increased by tax rebates.
Very grateful thanks to you all for this level of commitment, not only in the generous giving but also in helping to organise the week’s activities.
Bee Orchids in Cuddington
A patch of bee orchids has suddenly appeared in the wild life strip around one of the rape fields close to Cuddington! This is completely unexpected as they haven’t been seen before (as far as I am aware) and normally grown in chalky soils: you’d expect them in open Chilterns grassland for instance.
If you walk on the footpaths around the village and keep your eyes peeled, you will see them right by the path.
Parish Council Election of Chairman and Vice Chairman
