The village hall provided the venue for another Haddenham Dollshouse and Miniatures Exhibition on Saturday 14th November, a well attended event that raised money for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and Thames Valley Air Ambulance. Felicity and Ron Holland organised the event this year, and Freda Dorrell looked after the refreshments.
The annual Haddenham exhibition is a relatively small event compared to some of the bigger dollshouse and miniature fairs, but it compensates by being a very friendly show with a really positive and welcoming atmosphere.
Exhibitors chatted happily about their hobby and were ready and willing to exchange ideas and share their knowledge about everything miniature.
The standholders, principally there to offer their wares for sale, were also happy to talk to their customers about what they were selling and making, and this contributed to the relaxed and friendly nature of the event.
A final total of £543.40 was raised, and will be split between the two charities:
Hearing dogs for Deaf People £271.70
Thames Valley Air Ambulance £271.70
Felicity and Ron would like to thank all those who attended, contributed and helped to keep George and Freda's initial event going for another year.
