Whether or not the Haddenham Beer Festival is high on your own social calendar, many thousands of people do choose to enjoy the event — particularly the Summerfest in July, but also the Winterfest in December (the next one is on Sat. 14th December). The opportunity to enjoy a vast range of real ales and ciders, as well as an impressive choice of non-alcoholic delights, attracts visitors from far and wide — and the entertainments provided for children help to create a fun day out for the whole family.
As most Haddenham resident know, the Beer Festival is a hugely important fundraiser, with many thousands of pounds being distributed to local good causes in recent years.
Most recently, the Haddenham Beer Festival Trust made a donation of £800 to Abbeyfield Care Home (Stonehill House) in Churchway. This was to top-up the fundraising efforts of Abbeyfield staff and the Ponderosa Line Dancers, and enabled the purchase of an automated defibrillator.
Pictured top right are Chris Young and Jim Robinson, two of the Festival Trustees, with Lindsey McGibbon, the manager at Stonehill House, proudly displaying the new life-saving piece of kit. (For more on the defibrillator, please click here).
Yet another major donation was made recently to Haddenham Community Junior School, adding to the school's own efforts to fund a brand new ICT (computer) room.
On Friday afternoon, 20th September, John Bercow MP and Speaker of the House of Commons, visited the Junior School to conduct the formal opening ceremony. For more details , see here.
