This year's village fete was another wonderful event. Despite a dire weather forecast, the rain held off for the whole afternoon and local residents came out and supported in considerable numbers. Gusty winds were the only real challenge — and one or two gazebos gave up the battle rather dramatically! But Haddenham residents are a stoical lot, and in the sheltered sun-traps it even felt warm at times.
Holding the fete at Church End, once again, really does add to the village atmosphere, and it's a delight to see such a wide range of organisations and groups contributing to our local community. A very deserved well done and thank you to Tim Armitt and his team of organisers, as well as to all the stall holders, musicians, dancers, tea and cake caterers, and everyone else involved in helping to make the day such a success
One of the visitors to the fete was Sykes, the terrier dog who appears as a character in Midsomer Murders TV programme. He seemed to enjoy posing for photos and giving interviews! (See photographs in the Fete Gallery.)
