Haddenham — what a community-spirited place!

Some regular users of Haddenham Village Hall joined forces on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (8th/9th/10th March) and transformed the standard of decoration throughout the hall, to the benefit of all users and visitors. Thanks to a team of volunteers, representing a wide range of organisations in the village, the Village Hall has been transformed.

Those familiar with the strong shade of yellow that formerly adorned the walls of the main hall will immediately notice the much more subtle and neutral shade that has now been applied. A similar facelift has been given to the cafe-reception area as well as in the Walter Rose Room. The overall result is extremely attractive and has given the public rooms another lease of life.

A few of the folk who put the final touches in place on Sunday are pictured here (click on image to enlarge). Haddenham.net and all residents of Haddenham extend a warm and sincere vote of thanks to every single volunteer who gave up their time and helped to transform the Village Hall. Thank you to one and all!

There are some things we can take for granted at Aperitif Recitals and they are that the wine, soft drinks and canap├ęs will be excellent but especially so will be the music. Peter Shepherd, the twenty three year old organist of the Collegiate Church of St Bride Glasgow, lived up to expectations during his recital at St Mary's Church on 18th October when he performed an attractive mixture...
