A 'Right Royal Do!' took place in the Village Hall on Wednesday 24th August with the Churches Together in Haddenham hosting a 'Holiday at Home' event for older residents who may not get away on holiday.

Over 32 guests and 11 helpers celebrated the Queen's 90th birthday.

After a welcoming coffee and biscuits the 'Do' opened with 'the Queen's Speech' given by Amanda Pink minister at Haddenham Baptist Church. The theme continued with a wide range of activities including making a crown followed by a royal photo shoot, pin the tail on the corgi, flower arranging, games and quiz tables and many more.

A special 'royal' visitor who loved a fuss dropped by — Pip a King Charles Cavalier spaniel masquerading as a corgi! Guests were also invited to bring royal memorabilia and there were some wonderful memories for us all to share.

Lunch was cooked and served by Haddenham Age Concern lunch café team and was of course coronation chicken and followed by a delicious and thoughtfully designed union jack tart. We were then entertained for the afternoon by a singing duo Light Touch. And as with all good parties everyone went home with a goody bag.A great day out for guests and helpers alike.
