Village of Haddenham

Celebrating the Royal Wedding

Marriotts 06
Sheerstock 13a

Lots of Haddenham residents of all ages took the opportunity to celebrate the Royal Wedding on Saturday by joining their neighbours in street parties made possible by the closure of some of the village roads.

Pure blues skies and glorious May sunshine added to the joy of the day.

Among those celebrating were residents at the upper end of Sheerstock, in Marriotts Close, and in Printers Piece & Spicers Yard.

A number of photographs capturing the fun of the afternoon in Printers Piece & Spicers Yard were directly uploaded to the Haddenham.net Facebook page courtesy of Douglas Hickmore.

Those from the other two venues have kindly been forwarded to this website, and can now be seen in our Galleries section. Our sincere thanks to Andy & Alison Wray and to Freya Cuthbert for sending the editor their images.

And as the photos clearly show ... "there's no such thing as too much bunting!"
