Jonny Fillis

Last weekend Haddenham Baptist Church launched its Hat and Boots Restoration Appeal to raise funds for vital repairs to this unique witchert building. One week on, the Appeal has raised an incredible £7500!

Baptist Minister Jonny Fillis said "I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who supported Ross and myself during our 90 mile Wychert Way walk, our Open Day and all our fundraising activities. It was a really great way to start what will be a long road, so thank you all."

Appeal Co-ordinator Francesca Flaxton said "The response from the local community has been amazing so far. The Open Day and Wychert Way walk raised almost £4,500 and the rest has come from generous donations, other local events plus Gift Aid. It's clear there is a lot of support in the village to preserve Haddenham's witchert heritage".

There is still a long way to go. Please look out for many forthcoming events.

The annual Festive Trail 3-31 December is in aid of the Hat and Boots Appeal — to enter contact haddenhamfestivetrail@gmail.com by Mon 28th.

There is a Wreath Making Workshop at 7pm on 9th December (bookwreathmakinghaddenham@gmail.com) and the Haddenham Mummers will be performing at Winterfest on 10th with a collection afterwards — please remember to bring some cash!

Everyone is invited to an evening of Carol Singing with seasonal extras at 6pm at The Whistler on 21st December.
