Could you keep the Bucks Village Journal going?

I am once again on the hunt for someone who would love to take over the Bucks Village Journal…could that be you?

I love the website & the content it holds but I just don’t have the time to keep it going & due to health, I can’t do the networking needed or attend the events that would help to keep some interesting posts about what is going on in our beautiful area.

There is so much that could be reported on locally, so much more history to share & so many events that could be covered.

If this idea would interest you, please email me at kaye.townsend@btinternet.com

I look forward to hearing from you, Kaye.

Now & Then ~ Amazing Drawings Of The Rose & Crown Over The Years, Thanks To Willis Godley

I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Willis Godley who lives near what was, the Rose & Crown public house for many years. Mr Godley who is now 96 years old, had been a furniture designer in High Wycombe many years ago & used his amazing drawing skills to document the Rose & Crown during the years 1946 & 1965. Once he realised what we were doing with the Now & Then photos, he offered to show us his drawings & allow me to photograph them to share with you.

Free Photo Shoot in Marlow ~ Need your Feedback Please

Yesterday I posted a photo by Jake Henderson Photography which was pretty amazing, but Jake is a talented photographer who attends weddings, anniversaries, parties, baby showers & more.

So, after talking with him about a free photo shoot in Higginson Park, Marlow we wondered how many people would be interested in popping down for a professional photo. This could be a family shot, children, new baby, grandparents, 3/4/5 generations with a new baby, you & your dog or a group of friends.

No appointment necessary, just turn up & have your picture taken.

The photos would appear on Jake’s website for you to view & purchase. This would probably take place in approx. 2 weeks, on a weekend.

I think this would be a great opportunity to get some beautiful photos…. so what do you think? Good Idea? We would really appreciate your thoughts on this.

Here’s a couple of examples of Jake’s work & his contact details are as follows: https://aqimage.com/ or
