Haddenham Village Fete is always a wonderful community occasion, and its success reflects lots of hard work by the Fete Committee, acting on behalf of the Parish Council, and representatives of local businesses and voluntary organisations.
Not only does it provide a fun day out each year, it also raises funds for the local community.
The lead parish councillor is Tim Armitt, who has just announced the following donations from this year's fete income:
- Money has been pledged for a future Defibrillator for Haddenham: £1,250.00
- Haddenham Community Library: £675
- The Sixty Plus Club (previously known as 'Derby & Joan'): £250
- Support for the forthcoming WW1 Presentation by Haddenham Museum Trust: £200
- Haddenham Youth and Community Centre for audio/visual equipment: £1000
- Puddleducks £500
We understand that further donations are in the pipeline, once the recipients have been informed.
