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 firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you, Kaye.
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.

Thank you Mr. Godley, you have recorded a piece of history for us all to admire.
This is the Rose & Crown once it became a restaurant but still looking pretty much the as when I used to go in there in the 80’s/90’s
