Please don't be misled by our headline: despite the historical references to "silly Haddenham", this is not a comment on the intellectual capacities of particular individuals living in our village!

We are referring to a visit, apparently back in 1980, when some of our favourite Muppet characters made an unscheduled visit to Haddenham.

We are grateful to Susie Smith and Michael Talbot for reminding us of this historic event, and hope that they don't become inundated with Facebook 'friend' requests as a result!
