Haddenham & District Age Concern held its Christmas Coffee Stop at the Village Hall on 21st December, which was very well attended by members, volunteers and guests enjoying hot drinks, mince pies and sausage rolls.
After over 4 years of leading the volunteer team, which provides the drinks and biscuits, Maureen Faires is retiring and she was thanked for her hard work during a presentation of flowers by Christine Headlong, the group's Vice Chair.
The Coffee Stop will recommence from 4th January, opening its doors between 10.00 and 12.00 every Friday morning in the Village Hall lounge. Haddenham & District Age Concern also runs Lunch Clubs for our elderly residents and also organises the Art Group every Friday at the Village Hall, as well as organising day trips, holidays and fundraising events.
More information can be obtained from Carol Monro, Secretary, by calling 01844 292329 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
