Saturday 9th June, 1.00pm — 4.30pm sees the return of the popular Haddenham Village Fete around Church End and Flint Street — a lovely whole community event, with fun and games for all generations.

You can enjoy established favourites such as the Classic Cars Display at Manor Farm, Open Gardens around Church End and Flint Street, the Beer and Pimms Tent and the usual fabulous variety of stalls and games. Music will be provided by local groups The Shamrocks, The Ian English Trio and Sing in the Vale.

This year there will also be a few new highlights — a Gin Bar in a horsebox courtesy of the King's Head, a Spitfire Flypast, a vintage fashion display in St Mary's Church, speciality Polish food and a Bake-off Competition. As well as teas and homemade cakes being served in St Mary's Centre, this year you can also pick up coffee and cake from St Mary's Church.

An additional pit stop for this year's Wheelbarrow Race will see contestants in their fancy dress sprinting through the fete for the first time. Red Kite Radio, who will have celebrated their 1st birthday the night before, will be reporting on the action throughout the afternoon.

Don't forget to pick up a guide for Bucks Art Weeks and buy a Scarecrow Festival trail map on the day — two other wonderful local events starting that weekend.

Entry to the fete is free of charge but by buying a fete programme, you get a free ticket for the Lucky Programme Prize Draw which has some amazing prizes this year including: a 200 Portrait Experience Voucher from Paul Wilkinson, a Fortnum and Mason hamper, a M&S 100 voucher, Afternoon Tea for 2 at Brasserie Blanc, a beauty hamper and many more.

As always, we welcome your help and support and are looking for more volunteer helpers for the day of the fete. We are particularly looking for donations for our popular Bottle Tombola and homemade cakes for St Mary's Centre. Bottles can be donated any time in the week before the fete and cakes to be left on the evening before/morning of the fete with Kevin and Annie Cheeseman at Bluehills, Aston Road.

Please do contact haddenhamfete@gmail.com or call Julia on 07951 115697 for any fete-related questions or if you can volunteer to help on the day.
