Hail & Farewell – Clerks at Hughenden Parish Council

On Wednesday 22nd July Shona Hadwen, Clerk to the Hughenden Parish Council will be leaving us to return to Scotland.

Shona has been a great support locally, and to the Hughenden Valley Residents Association in particular, regularly forwarding important relevant information.

She will be missed by many of us.

On Wednesday Shona will be handing over to the new Clerk, Melanie Woof, who has worked as Deputy Chair Officer for BALC, which Parish Councils refer to for directives.  She has also been a Chair of a Parish Council and will start here immediately.

We would like to wish Shona a happy future in the Isles of Scotland.  Our loss is their gain.

Melanie, despite her valuable experience will find it a challenge to arrive during our down time of Covid-19, as well as liaison with the new Buckinghamshire Council, the gradually fading District Council and changes to CAPS.

Welcome and good Luck.

HVRA Annual General Meeting 2020

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) for 2020 will be held as soon as is practicable under Covid-19 lockdown regulations.

The position of Chair has been held jointly by Angus & Janet Idle for the past six years and they have now decided to step down for a well-earned rest.
Consequently, we are looking for a new Chair or joint Chairs who can inspire us with good leadership qualities and can drive forward the aims and objects of the HVRA.

Nomination papers are available from the Secretary (, also on the HVRA web page ( ) & published in the Hughenden News.

Full details are here.

Potter Cup Quiz

Dear Potential Quizzers and Supporters of the Hughenden Valley Potter Cup Quiz,

Next year will be the second year in recent times anyway, that the Potter Cup Quiz has been run in the Spring.  In March of this year the event was incredibly successful because of your support and it would be great to get the same level of support for 2020.

The 2020 quiz is on SATURDAY 14th MARCH.

Once again I’m pleased to advise that we have maintained the price at only £10 per person and this includes the good quality buffet. Please remember that the proceeds from the Potter Quiz are ‘ring fenced’ by the HVRA for the Senior Citizens function which will be held later in the year.

More details of the 2020 Potter Quiz event are:

  • DATE: Saturday 14th March 2020
  • TIME: 7.00 for 7.30 prompt start
  • THEME: ‘2020 VISION’
  • COST:  £10 per head, which will include a good quality buffet
  • TEAM SIZE: Maximum number of 8 please
  • TEAM NAME: Your choice
  • FANCY DRESS (Linked to the Theme): Optional
  • DRINKS: Bring your own drinks & glasses

If you would like to put in a team even at this early stage, perhaps you would advise me together with the likely numbers so that we can organise food, etc.  If there is possibility of it being oversubscribed I will of course let you know.

In the meantime If you do have any related queries please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks again for your support
Kind Regards
