Looking for a means of keeping fit in a social group and in the company of good friends? Then Haddenham Runners may be the ideal choice.

Haddenham Runners is a local running club that came into being in 1990. Members run in Haddenham and the surrounding villages on a Thursday evening during the summer months.

The club's traditional season was from the first Thursday in May through to mid-September, when the lighter evenings allow safe running on the local roads. However, this has been extended recently, so that members now run all year round with the routes adapted for safer night time running.

During the summer the club meets in Cuddington, at the Cricket club car park for 7pm. From there members run down to a local village and go through one of their scheduled routines. This is done for four weeks, on the fifth week they meet in Haddenham for the club handicap that is run around Haddenham.

In September the final club handicap is run and the club shield competed for, with the first across the line taking the shield.

Haddenham Runners is a friendly club. Members are encouraged to run at their own pace against themselves — there is no direct competing (unless you want to), and runs are varied each week.

Haddenham Runners always welcome old and new faces. So if you fancy a run, come down to the Cricket club car park in Cuddington, for 7pm Thursdays.

There are some things we can take for granted at Aperitif Recitals and they are that the wine, soft drinks and canap├ęs will be excellent but especially so will be the music. Peter Shepherd, the twenty three year old organist of the Collegiate Church of St Bride Glasgow, lived up to expectations during his recital at St Mary's Church on 18th October when he performed an attractive mixture...
