Did you get along to the village hall on Saturday 4th November?

There was a really positive buzz about the place, as 'Homemade in Haddenham' shared space with 'Vale Harvest', and all set against a soundtrack of live music, to create a delightful shopping experience for local residents.

Despite all the concerns over rapid growth of the village, this event captured the very essence of what living in Haddenham is about: individuals, small local businesses and not-for-profit organisations offering the community the benefits of their time, talent and skills to help create an occasion with real community spirit.

A list of all the stall holders, artists, craftspeople and organisations helps to illustrate the sheer breadth of the event:
