There's a wonderful array of produce at Homemade in Haddenham this Saturday 4th November, 9am-2pm, in and around the Village Hall.
There will be more than 30 stalls — yes, 30! — selling all kinds of exquisitely made crafts and food. As well as all the usual favourites from Vale Harvest — cheese, cakes, plants, salads, beef, ice cream, honey — a whole lot of craftspeople have emerged from behind closed doors with their beautiful handmade products — Witchert soap, silver jewellery, recycled jewellery, wooden toys, lots of bags and cushions, pottery for the home and garden, painting, clothes, and much, much more. Do not miss it!
There will be community stalls with info about some of the services and campaigns going on locally, from Haddenham Safe Walking and Cycling to Tyrefighters, so while you muse over your delicious coffee and cakes, or your soup lunch, you can consider healthy ways into the future!
Outside there will be a cycle repair stall, which will give your beloved bike the once over and offer advice on how it can be made to go better. And, of course, Homemade in Haddenham wouldn't be complete without apple-pressing.
Last but not least, there will be a SWISH stall. 'Swishing' is swapping your lovely, but no longer needed, quality clothes for someone else's! New outfits all round, sustainable, free and fun. What's not to love? Please bring a small number of swappable clothes on hangers to our Swish stall — but even more important is to take some different ones away with you! And while you're at it — saving the planet by making good use of things that were lying around unused, you can take a look at our ethical clothing display. All very interesting.
So, fill your purses with cash, come and support all these redoubtable local makers and polish off your Christmas present list in one quick shake. Brilliant!
Village Hall, Saturday 9am — 2pm. See you there!
