St Mary's Centre

Haddenham Garden Centre is pleased to announce some new developments and a reminder of Santa's arrival in late November ...
Firstly, the Garden Centre has opened a new Farm Shop which features produce from local sources — including local bread, eggs, meat, pies, fruit & veg, biscuits, jams and chutneys.
Secondly, Santa's coming ... during the Festive Fun Weekend on 22nd & 23rd November, from 11.00am-4.00pm — with Santa's Arrival at 11.00am.
Attractions include a children's farm, face painting, fairground ride, and face painting for the whole of this weekend. The grotto will then be open every weekend up until Christmas.
Santa's Grotto is run by Haddenham & District Rotary Club, with all proceeds going to charity — including lots of local organisations.
The Garden Centre does not take any money from the grotto and, indeed, donates the presents to Rotary for the Grotto — so absolutely all the proceeds do go to charity.
The cost to visit Santa is just £4.99 per child.
