Neighbourhood Watch in Biddenham – Volunteers needed

Neighbourhood Watch is one of the most effective crime reduction initiatives and its values are recognised by our partners, the Police, Fire & Rescue Service and the Borough and Parish Councils. It’s all about people getting together and actively having a positive impact on crime in their area.

More volunteer support is needed in Biddenham. For further information click the following link Neighbourhood Watch


Programme of Archaeology Talks At The Higgins

My name is Liz Pieksma and I am the Keeper of Archaeology at The Higgins, Bedford and I am very keen to share the Archaeological Collections of Bedfordshire in our care with other interested folk. To this end I have taken several themes and created informal slide presentations followed by an object handling and nattering time.

As you probably are all aware The Higgins Art Gallery and Museum, Bedford offers a range of tours/talks/ activities and exhibitions. We do have less-abled, secure parking in the courtyard and there is The Pantry on site for refreshments etc so please pop in to see us sometime.

New Biddenham Website

The Biddenham Parish Council Website will undergo a relaunch in the autumn of 2016. The new website will be modernised and have improved functionality. It will be simple to navigate and contain up to date information.

The Parish Council hope to make the new website more dynamic,interactive and relevant to the village life of Biddenham. Initially the launch will show Parish Council activities but over time we hope the site evolves and becomes much bigger and the first point of call for all Biddenham residents.

In order to achieve this goal we are actively looking for contributors and helpers. In particular we our looking for contributions in the following areas:-

Biddenham History
Schools – Biddenham Upper, St Gregory’s and St James
Clubs & Societies
Security and safety
The Church
News that directly affects the village
Photograph Archive

We do not wish to replace existing community websites as these are important to their own audiences. In fact we want to see all community website links within the new website so that it becomes the single place to find or be directed to information about Biddenham.

We are looking to publish articles that may be of interest for the whole village. For example major events, achievements or news that may impact the wider community outside the societies.

Please feel free to write feedback and comments on the new website at . Updates will be issued periodically regarding the launch date and progress.
