Saturday 29th February saw another very successful 'Community Fair' take place in the village hall.
Providing a platform for some fifty different organisations, showcasing their contributions to the local community and particularly aimed at helping those newly arrived residents of Haddenham to see what a wonderful range of resources, hobbies, support services and activities our village has to offer.
The event attracted a very large number of visitors, providing them with a wonderful opportunity to talk to the organisers of the charities, clubs, societies and organisations represented and to reflect on the many opportunities to 'get involved'.
The afternoon also offered practical displays and musical presentations from The Vibe Acoustic Café , Fitlife, 'The Treble Clefs' (Haddenham St. Mary's C of E School choir), Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and Thame Choral Society (who rehearse in Haddenham).
This year's Community Fair was the third in a series, all organised by the Village Society and this year under the particular leadership of Jim Robins, who chaired the working group that was responsible for coordinating and promoting the event.
The Village Society would like to extend its sincere appreciation to all participating organisations and to the CafePlus+ catering team from St Mary's Church for providing wonderful refreshments and cakes throughout the afternoon.
We are also indebted to retired GP, Dr Hugh Stradling. who kindly captured the spirit of the event through a number of photographic images — many of which are on display in our Galleries section.
