St Georges Day

Haddenham Village Society marked St George's Day with the Society's Annual Dinner on Thursday evening.

Haddenham's newly revived local hostelry, now known as Bluebella Roo's at The Green Dragon, was packed for the event.

Well over fifty HVS members enjoyed a superb meal, selecting from a special menu, prepared by head chef Matt offering many choices for each course.

The table service, directed by Simon and Annabelle, was outstanding which contributed to a warm ambience for this yearly event.

Sir Roderick Floud proposed a toast to honour H.M. The Queen on her 90th birthday, followed by the Society's traditional toasts to St. George and William Shakespeare.

According to HVS membership secretary, Brian Cole: "Altogether, the best Annual Dinner ever!"
