A big thumbs up to the Haddenham Village Society and all the stall holders, stand presenters and demonstration providers, who helped to make the Community Fair such a wonderful event on Saturday afternoon, 21st January.

The initiative came from executive committee member Mike Mingos, with support from his fellow members of the Village Society committee. A particular mention should also go to Peter Quilleash who volunteered to take over and run the refreshment cafe at very short notice when a commercial provider unfortunately had to drop out unexpectedly.

The event attracted a very wide range of clubs, societies and organisations and very clearly demonstrated how easy it is to find activities to join in with and enjoy in the village of Haddenham.

It was also a striking demonstration of the degree to which so many individuals contribute their time and talents as volunteers to make the Haddenham community such an enriching place in which to live.

Over 50 organisations were represented, including some providing live demonstrations. Lots of effort had also gone into making the information stands attractive and informative. Here's a list of those represented:
