Latest news

Welcome to the Nether Winchendon village website where you will find information about village life, our history, news, events and links to useful information.

 

The village lies within the Aylesbury Vale district of Buckinghamshire, England, near the border of Oxfordshire, about five miles west of Aylesbury and five miles north-east of Thame.

 

The village name 'Winchendon' originates from Anglo Saxon, meaning 'hill at a bend'. The Winchendon villages were recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Wincandone.

 

For such a small village of about 50 houses and a population of approximately 120, Nether Winchendon is a very active community. St Nicholas Church lies at its heart and is both a lively church and the village meeting place.

  • Clap for our carers, every Thursday - we'll show our appreciation for our incredible carers and join people across the country by clapping out of our gardens, doors or windows at 8pm

  • Please sign up to 'Nextdoor' and join the Nether Winchendon community - offer help, get advice, hear about local support 

  • The church building has had to close - please see the 'Church / Coronavirus' link above for new ways of praying together and supporting each other through this time of adversity​

  • There is still a food bank box to be filled each week - this will now be in the shed behind the church - so please try and donate anything on your permitted daily outing

  • We have started a book share stand for villagers to use and drop/collect on their daily outing - this will be outside the Skingles' house Friday to Sunday, 9am to 6pm 

  • We are hoping to launch a recipe section on our website - if you'd like to contribute recipes, please send to nwbucks@gmail.com

  • With great regret we have had to cancel the following events. Please see below for more details:

    • Summer Fete (13 June)

    • Cream Teas (9 & 10 May) 

  • Village meeting (27 April) - Cancelled, now to be covered online instead

2020 Diary dates

  • 28th March - 8.30pm - switch off your lights for Earth Hour

  • 29th March - next YouTube streaming of Sunday Service

  • 30th & 31st August - Cream teas (2.30pm-5pm)

It is with a great deal of regret that as a result of the Coronavirus we have decided to cancel this year's Fete, scheduled for 13 June. It seems the Fete would land at the peak of the predicted number of infections and that social distancing and rules around gatherings will still be in force and we do not want to put any villagers or visitors at risk.  Please follow us on Instagram and keep an eye out on our website for other online events which we'll be holding in the meantime.  Any ideas welcome!

Cream Teas August Bank Holiday

Regrettably we have had to cancel the teas on 9 & 10 May. However please still come and enjoy the August bank holiday weekend with a famous Nether Winchendon Cream Tea. You'll get a massive scone, a ginormous piece of cake and as much tea or coffee as you want, served at our picturesque church 2.30-5pm. This year they'll just be held on Sunday 30 & Monday 31 August 2020.  We look forward to seeing you then!
