Artisans & Makers 02

For the second year the Haddenham Makers and Artisans' Fair came to the village hall to help the forward-thinking residents of Haddenham get started on their Christmas shopping.

The organisers Clare Abbott of Baby Face Art, Lucy Brooke of Made by Mums, Liz Dee of The Silver Workshop and Naomi Foreman-Peck of Sew Naomi, were joined by 20 local artists offering a wide range of beautiful items to suit every taste. On offer were things to eat, artwork to hang on your walls, items to wear and sit on, and plenty of gifts for every member of the family.

The day was a huge success, with over 300 people through the door, enjoying delights from Lucy's pop-up cafe and partaking in some retail therapy. I'm sure you all agree the hall looked very impressive.

Over £150 was raised through the raffle and colouring competition for the Haddenham Community Vehicle. Congratulations to our three lucky raffle winners, and Lily Corbett and Charlie Morgan for their winning entries in the over and under fives colouring competition. The committee would like to thank Kim Biddulph, Kate Shobbrock, Ruth Talbot, Anne van der Westhuyzen, Andy Dee and the Brooke family for all their help on the day.

We are hoping to run the event again in November 2017. If you are interested in taking part, please email hmafair@gmail.com to be included in our mailing list.
