St Mary's Church

Members of the Haddenham Ponderosa line dance group & friends put on a demonstration for Abbeyfield Haddenham Care Home residents in the village hall on Saturday 13th April. Two other local care homes, Bartlett's and Stone House also joined in.
A cup of tea & homemade cake was enjoyed halfway through served by a brilliant team of volunteers. A raffle raised £78 towards a defibrillator for Abbeyfield which has already had a very generous donation of £800 from Haddenham Beer Festival.
Lindsey McGibbon, manager of Abbeyfield (who is a line dancer herself) would like to thank Sue Young and all the line dancers for giving up their Saturday afternoon. The afternoon was a great success and enjoyed by all.
