The Haddenham Darby & Joan Club finished a busy year with their Christmas Party at the Youth & Community Centre on Wednesday 18th December.
An enthusiastic group of local residents were entertained by Penny Heydon and a large gathering of musician friends from Haddenham and local villages, playing together under the name of "The Black Dog Band", who delivered a cheery repertoire of toe-tapping, sing-along music with a traditional folk and country flavour.
The afternoon concluded with a delightful tea party and an opportunity to exchange gifts and Christmas cards.
Next year will see the traditional 'Darby and Joan' name changed to The Sixty Plus Club and the first meeting of the New Year will start in the same vein as 2013 closed — with a party to celebrate the new moniker!
