Marquee Erecting

Question: what is the easiest way to erect the village marquee?
Answer: get lots of people together to do it over Breakfast!

A marquee will be erected for Homemade in Haddenham starting at 8.00am on Saturday 8th October — and organisers are looking for some help, please. Strong coffee will be provided ... and, hopefully, some "breakfasty nibbles".

They need plenty of willing volunteers to get stuck into hauling canvass, humping poles, belaying ropes (....well it sounds good!) etc., and then celebrating what a beautiful structure they have built!

Meet at Banks Park for 8am sharp (or miss the coffee!) and the task should be completed done by 9.30am ...then we can enjoy the delights of Homemade in Haddenham — twinned with Vale Harvest.

For those who like winding handles and drinking apple juice, we have several vacancies in the apple pressing gang, whose endeavours begin at 10.00am. Organisers expect to have large quantities of apples waiting to be pulped and pressed. If you haven't made juice/cider before — come and learn!
