Little Pick 07

Another village Litter Pick took place on 21st July, organised by the Parish Council. A significant group of very public spirited folk of all ages turned up, donned high-viz jackets and got on with the job of helping to keep our lovely village looking smart and tidy.
Haddenham Parish Council would like to extend a big vote of thanks to all those kind people, who so generously gave of their time for the benefit of the rest of us. Such actions are at the very heart of what it means to be community minded. Well done to all of you! More photos >
