From Banks Park
From the Catholic Church

The Witchert Chorale's friends from Berlin — the Golgatha Kantorei, a choir from the centre of Berlin in the old East — are coming to visit Haddenham for the second time at the end of March.
In advance of their visit they have sent the most amazing gift for the people of Haddenham — an oak tree. It has already been planted alongside the Scout and Guide Centre at Banks Park, with kind permission of the Parish Council, where it will stand as a symbol of our international friendship.
We hope it will flourish and do its bit to negate carbon emissions over the next many hundred years!
The German choir will be performing a seasonal concert alongside the Witchert Chorale in St Nicholas' Church Cuddington on Saturday 28th March at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £10 (children free) and available from Blooming Fruity. Everyone welcome! In aid of Utugi Street Children Project.
