Wednesday 26th August saw 32 senior day trippers arrive at 'Haddenham- on-Sea' (better known as the Village Hall) for a day out at the seaside!

The 'Holiday at Home' event was organised by Churches Together in Haddenham to provide a special day for those who may not otherwise get away on holiday.

Guests had lots to choose from including making their own Kiss Me Quick hats, flower arranging, making pebble paperweights, a games corner or just relaxing in a deck chair on the beach.

Seagulls a-plenty but no dive-bombing or pinching the lunch!

Of course, no day at the seaside is complete without freshly prepared fish and chips and a '99' ice cream. And at the end of every good party there's a goody bag — a stick of seaside rock and sandcastle flag as mementos of the day!

Happy times.
