Many hundreds of residents and visitors enjoyed Haddenham's traditional village fete on Saturday 6th June.
Tim Armitt, lead co-ordinator on behalf of the parish council, has been doing some number crunching with his team, and has announced that the approximate total funds raised for local good causes this year is likely to be about £4,200. This figure may yet grow a little more once all the money is in.
The fete funds this year have been earmarked (subject to confirmation) to support:
- Holiday at Home
- Hunca Munca
- Haddenham Community Library
- Screen Haddenham
- Maypole Dancing equipment
This represents a list of organisations that have already been in touch, but any others will be considered and added to the list for either this year or next, depending on the level of funding that they are seeking.
