'Big Picnic' 2013
Best Dressed Dads 02

Following on from the wonderful Jubilee celebrations last year, Haddenham in Transition organised a "Big Picnic" on Church End green on Sunday 16th June (Father's Day). Friends & neighbours gathered for a leisurely chat and the opportunity to dine alfresco.

Highlights of the afternoon included a "Best Dressed Teddy" competition and (in celebration of Father's Day) a "Best Dressed Dad" competition. Judging was entrusted to the Rev. Margot Hodson, who was above reproach and so resisted the inducement of cheap garden manure discreetly offered by the cowboy's horse.

A large crowd enjoyed a balmy 15 degrees Celsius — not bad by 2013 standards! A delicious lunch together with great company made for a memorable afternoon.
