The Haddenham Playscheme is a community scheme run for local school children by volunteers for one week during the summer holidays. It has now been running for over 30 years!

This year the Playscheme will take place from Monday 3rd to Friday 7th August 2015 at Haddenham Community Junior School, from 9.00am-12.00 noon each day

We offer a wide programme of activities for children aged 5-11 years (as at 31st August 2015) who are resident in Haddenham or attend any Haddenham school full time.
Activities include:

  • ARTS & CRAFTS
  • COOKERY
  • WOODWORK
  • CLAY MODELLING
  • CANDLE MAKING
  • ENAMELLING
  • DANCE WORKSHOPS
  • SPECIALIST SPORTS COACHING
  • SEWING
  • JEWELLERY MAKING
  • BADGE MAKING
  • INFLATABLES
  • and so much more!

This year we are hoping to secure funding once again for LASER QUEST and ZORB BALLS!
The fee this year is £20.00 per child for the whole week — and that includes all materials, workshops, sports etc.
