Saturday 18th June saw the return of the Haddenham Hoedown!

Organised by the Haddenham Community Infant School PTA, headed by Gemma Prescott-Borgnis, the event was a fun filled evening with a live band, line dancing, a hog roast and even a rodeo bull (the record of 84s on the bull was set by Gemma herself!).

The evening was topped off by a raffle with prizes donated from local companies including the Garage, FitLife, Haddenham Garden Centre, Bradmoor Farm and Howe Farm flowers and more.

Aided by sponsorship from Rectory Homes, Harpers, McCormick, PL schoolwear and Haddenham Dental, profits from the evening were over £1500 and will be put to fantastic use to support Haddenham Community Infant School.

The PTA are very grateful to all who've helped us in supporting this event.

We'll be back next year even bigger and better!!
