Witchert Chorale Concert on March 28th

On March 28th the Witchert Chorale, with Golgatha Kantorie an associated choir from Berlin, gave a concert in Cuddington church before a packed audience of over 100 people.  The English choir was conducted by David Quinn and the German choir by Martin Kruger.

The programme included works by Jon Tavenor, Brahms, Mendelssohn and Elgar, and also contained readings by Andy Hardy.

It was, as is usual with the Witchert Chorale in Cuddington, very well received and gave much pleasure to the audience.

The proceeds were in aid of the Utugi Street Children Kenya Project, and a handsome total of £1.207 was raised for this cause.

Are you registered to Vote?

Aylesbury Vale District Council is urging those who are not yet on the electoral register to apply to register by the deadline of 20 April to protect their right to vote on Election Day – 7 May 2015.

Chris Sheard, Electoral Services Manager, said: “Time is now running short to make sure you can take part in these elections, so I’d encourage everyone in Aylesbury Vale to take action now if they aren’t registered to vote. Those particularly at risk of missing the chance to vote are people who have moved house recently, and who mistakenly assume they are automatically registered at their new address because they pay council tax. The two processes are completely separate.

“Online registration makes registering to vote easier and more convenient than ever before. It only takes a few minutes to do at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote and people can access it through their computer, smartphone or tablet.”

AVDC is particularly keen to remind young people that they need to be registered by the closing date to be able to cast their vote in May.

Sixteen and 17-year-olds can register themselves now so that they will be able to vote as soon as they turn 18. Students who are living away at university can also register at both their term time address and home address.

Under the new Individual Electoral Registration system, which was introduced last summer, everyone is responsible for registering themselves. Those registering will need to prove their identity by providing their name, address, National Insurance number and date of birth when applying. 

Those who would prefer a postal vote, rather than going along to a polling station, need to be registered individually before they can apply for a postal vote. The closing date for postal vote applications is Tuesday 21 April, at 5pm. 

For further information about voting in the May elections, visit www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/elections or call the elections team on 01296 585807.

Remember the Fete when you start clearing out!

The Sun’s out, the flowers are on their way and I am sure we shall soon be donning our marigolds and getting stuck in to the traditional English Spring Clean.  Well don’t forget the Fete when you start bagging up your old bits and bobs.  We would welcome all donations of bags and beads (to go direct to Denise's) and any books, toys, bottles or bric-a-brac.  Phone Jo (292958) to arrange a collection time or drop off at 10 Bernard Close whenever you are able.

Many thanks, Jo Goodson
