Haddenham's traditional Village Fete was graced with lovely summer sunshine and the event drew a large crowd of visitors, all eager to join in the fun. Attractions included lots of stalls, sideshows, food and drink (enough to please all the family), as well as a bouncy castle and a fire engine.
Many visitors enjoyed the teas, cakes and sandwiches inside St Mary's Centre or alfresco, while others made a beeline for the beer stall and Pimms tent provided by the Village Society. A pig roast and barbecue on the Village Green, run by Ricky and Emily Jeffrey, also drew lengthy queues. Lots of ice cream was also on offer, of course!
Several local gardens were open to visitors, including:
- The Granary, Manor Farm (Carolyn and David Hollick)
- 14 Church End (Zoe and Brian Bowman)
- 16 Church End (Angela and David Truesdale)
- 9 Church End (Margaret Walshe)
- 5 Flint Street (Ros Welch)
- 15 Flint Street (Cynthia and Roderick Floud), and
- Manor Farm, Church End (Lizzie and David Banister)
Monies raised from the Fete will go to various local good causes, while donations made at the open gardens will benefit Florence Nightingale Hospice. This year the open gardens donations achieved the grand total of £601 — a most impressive total. Sincere thanks to all the hosts listed above.
A wide selection of photographs of the Fete can be found in our GALLERY — why not take a look and and re-live a very pleasurable afternoon? And who knows, you might even find yourself featured!
