Haddenham — what a community-spirited place!

Some regular users of Haddenham Village Hall joined forces on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (8th/9th/10th March) and transformed the standard of decoration throughout the hall, to the benefit of all users and visitors. Thanks to a team of volunteers, representing a wide range of organisations in the village, the Village Hall has been transformed.

Those familiar with the strong shade of yellow that formerly adorned the walls of the main hall will immediately notice the much more subtle and neutral shade that has now been applied. A similar facelift has been given to the cafe-reception area as well as in the Walter Rose Room. The overall result is extremely attractive and has given the public rooms another lease of life.

A few of the folk who put the final touches in place on Sunday are pictured here (click on image to enlarge). Haddenham.net and all residents of Haddenham extend a warm and sincere vote of thanks to every single volunteer who gave up their time and helped to transform the Village Hall. Thank you to one and all!

The Turn End Trust is presenting a unique film for its first public showing on Thursday evening 31st August, at the Youth & Community Centre. Filmed through all four seasons, Turn End captures how architect Peter Aldington masterly designed the houses and garden as one, making the garden a natural extension to the house.
