Roadside Litter Pick – Saturday 25th March
A Blitz on Roadside Litter – Saturday 25th March, 10am
Cuddington is going to have a blitz on roadside litter on Saturday 25th March at 10am before the grass grows too much and masks the rubbish along the roadsides (since Bucks County Council has cut the verges on many roads over the recent months, it is noticeable how much litter and junk is present along the roadsides).
We need a gang of volunteers, who are prepared to give a few hours of their time on this day.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you the week before to make arrangements and provide bags and equipment for the job.
If you would like to help but are not available that day, we could allocate an area to be covered at a more convenient time.
Residents take a pride in the fact that Cuddington village is virtually litter-free.
Anyone for Tennis?
The 2017 season is just about to start and Cuddington Tennis Club would love to hear from you!
We have two all-weather, all year round flood-lit courts up on the Playing Fields and plenty of times and opportunities to play – Wednesday morning play starts at 10am and Club Evening will always be on Thursdays.
Hope to see you!
Attempted Theft from Vehicle in Bridgeway
A Bridgeway resident accidentally left her car unlocked last night. This morning, the contents of the glove compartment were strewn across the front seat.
Happily, nothing was taken, but villagers are warned to take extra care that their cars are locked when not in use. If you see anyone suspicious, try to get a description of them along with details of any vehicle they might be using. Call it through on 101 or, if a crime is happening at that time, dial 999.
Challenging Power – Destroying the Myth of the Mighty Leader and offering hope for the future
Speaker: Canon Phil Groves
Five sessions to be held in St Nicholas’ Church, Cuddington on Tuesday evenings starting on 7th March, 7.30 for 8pm
This Lent we will be examining events, such as terrorism, racism and migration; and politicians (such as Donald Trump and Rodrigo Duterte) who portray themselves as Mighty Leaders, in the context of Bible stories and characters.
We will consider why such leaders are dangerous and look at alternatives; and also at what creates peaceful communities, and how we can make a difference here and around the world.

Spectacles Left in the Bernard Hall
A pair of spectacles was found in the Bernard Hall after the broadcast of Amadeus last night. They have bronze-coloured frames and squared-off oval lenses.
If they are yours, they are now at Cuddington Stores where you may collect them.
High Sheriff Visits School
The school was delighted to welcome Mrs Milly Soames DL, High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, (and resident of Cuddington!) on a special visit today.
She visited both Infant and Junior sites and was able to see the children in all of the classrooms and ask questions about their learning.
They also had the chance to ask her about her role and there will be a full report of the visit in next month's Village Voice.
The photograph shows Milly receiving a bouquet of flowers from two childen on the Infant site.
