Mayday 29

Haddenham's May Day celebrations take place on Saturday. They begin with a procession of garlands which leaves Church End Green at 10.30am and returns there (via Gibson Lane, Crabtree Road and Churchway) 20 minutes or so later. This is followed at 11am by Maypole dancing by local school children on the green (or in the Tythe Barn at Manor Farm if wet), and afterwards there is dancing by adult groups.

As usual, there will be various stalls on the green including the Haddenham Scout and Guide Association's cake and plant stall, and the Haddenham Museum Trust stall, where Haddenham Chronicles no. 13 will be launched. The new issue of the Chronicles, along with previous years' issues, will be on sale subsequently at the museum (open Sunday afternoons and Tuesday mornings) and at Blooming Fruity.

Also, at 14 Church End, in the garden, you can enjoy coffee and cake on Saturday (9.30am-12.30pm). Proceeds will go to the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
