The village fete has come and gone, and likewise the Summerfest Beer Festival. So what's next on the "not to be missed" list of summer events in Haddenham?
Top of your list has to be the 50th Anniversary Celebration Party of Haddenham Village Society, which is being held in the truly delightful gardens of Roderick and Cynthia Floud at 15 Flint Street ('Duck Bottom') on Sunday 19th July, from 12:30pm until 3.30pm.
This promises to be a very special family-orientated event with lots to entertain folk of all ages. Come and enjoy a family picnic and a wonderful chance to mark a major event: the 50th Birthday of the Village Society.
The youngsters will be well catered for with attractions like a bouncy castle, face painting, a magician and more.
This will allow parents, grandparents and carers, as well as those adults who've not been brought along by their children, to kick back and enjoy the live jazz and folk music, while supping a glass or two of Pimms, tucking into the hog roast and generally embracing the opportunity to relax in a beautiful location!
Garden fans will be able to peruse the nooks and crannies of the captivating Duck Bottom garden, while those with a natural leaning towards local history can enjoy looking at a display of many of the Village Society's activities and achievement over the last 50 years.
The weather is set fare — but there's more than adequate provision for all climatic possibilities to ensure that a fun time is guaranteed.
Tickets are available now, and you are encouraged to secure these as soon as possible, as there are obvious physical limits to the number available and the event is going to be very popular. Family tickets are just £5.00 in advance. Adults £3.00 each on the door.
