First recorded sighting of Fummies appeared in the Advertiser & Gazette newspaper back in February 2000 when George Taylor, a Haddenham resident, recalled coming across them when he was an eight year old boy in the 1940's.
The Fummies are shy creatures described as being as big as a thumb, wearing red jackets, playing trumpets and dancing to old fashioned music. They were reported as living in old treacle and syrup tins in an area just off Baghill Lane on the outskirts of the village.
Recent rumours of sightings of these little creatures have given rise to the belief that the Fummies have now moved to the Haddenham Nature Reserve near the railway station.
A display of these fantastic creatures can be seen at Haddenham Museum in the High Street which will be open over the Spring Bank Holiday on Sunday 30th and Monday 31st May, between noon and 4:30pm.
