We are indebted to Haddenham resident, John Morris, for drawing our attention to the article published in the Daily Telegraph on Saturday 16th August, which discussed "Britain's Friendliest Places to Live".
Among the list of the Top 20 Places, Haddenham was listed at No. 9.
The Telegraph had this to say:
"It may be in the heart of Midsomer Murders country, but this likeable Buckinghamshire village must be the last place in the country you would expect to get a knife in the back. Everybody here is nice. There are so many communal activities — church fetes, concerts, fun runs, am-dram productions, bridge clubs, pub quizzes — that there genuinely is something for everyone. Even the massed cohorts of golden retrievers seem to be smiling. You might not find much on the market and, if you do, it's sure to be snapped up quickly. "
