The annual Haddenham Feast brings to the village a visit from the travelling fun fair, and this year was no exception.
Sadly, the weather did manage to dampen the event a little, as modest drizzle finally gave way to rather heavier and persistent precipitation! Hey Ho!
But it was probably only the adults who registered this fact. As the photos show, our local youngsters still has lots of fun.
And talking of photo, lots more are featured in our GALLERIES section.
Image Policy on Haddenham.net
As many regular visitors to the community website will know, we seek to capture lots of village events in photographs, to reflect the fun and enjoyment that is on offer in our lovely rural Buckinghamshire village.
Whenever we take photographs of young children, we always seek the permission of their accompanying parents, relatives or guardians before any images appear on the website. It goes without saying that we fully respect the wishes of carers who indicate that they do not want their children featured. We also liaise very closely with the three schools to ensure that the schools' public events do not result in photographs of youngsters on Haddenham.net for whom parental permission has not been given.
When teenagers and young adults are involved in public events, we seek to ask them directly before we include their image on the community website. When such young folk are in large groups this is not always feasible, but we would encourage anyone who prefers not to see themselves featured on the community website to let us know, and we will respond immediately to such requests.
Thus far (after fours years of featuring a huge number of village events) we have never been to asked to remove an image. However, here are the contact details should anyone wish to object to an image among the latest set of photographs capturing the fun of the fair.

On a more positive note, we will be pleased to provide parents or guardians with copies of any images of their children featured on this website without charge, as long as such requests are channeled through the local schools to ensure their authenticity. As mentioned, we maintain close relationships with all three Haddenham schools.
