St Mary's Centre

Haddenham village hall was packed for the ever-popular village carol service on Friday evening, 13th December.
Organised by Churches Together in Haddenham, the service included contributions from many village organisations, including Hunca Munca, the Community Library, the Scouts, the Thursday Club, and U3A.
The choir from Haddenham Community Junior School delighted the congregation with two songs, and contributed significantly to the visual aids in support of Helen Barnes' talk.
After the blessing, the tranquility of the evening was somewhat disturbed by a rowdy group of itinerant thespians, who arrived on the scene in somewhat curious attire and the last word in sartorial footware!
Amanda turned pink but left without a 'smudge' on her reputation!
