If you're a parent or carer looking for things to engage, occupy and entertain children over the summer school holidays, there's lots on offer in and around the village.
Thame 'Lighthouse' and the Haddenham Playscheme are now over for this year, and great fun was had by all the hundreds of children who went along to both these very well organised events.
The tennis club in the village is offering coaching courses. For reasons best known to their coaches and organisers, Haddenham.net is never notified of the details, but if you wander along to the tennis courts at the recreation ground on Woodways one morning during August, and there's bound to be someone available there to ask.
Haddenham Cycle Training are hosting further training courses in the village during the fourth week of August (20th — 22nd) and you can find all the vital details here.
If you're prepared to travel a little further afield, there are lots of other options and opportunities — for some ideas, see here
The Aylesbury Town Centre Partnership is also offering events and activities for children, with a very wide range of options available throughout August, from the physically active to the more reflective and cerebral — and best of all, they are all free of charge!
There are too many events to list here — but you can view the poster with all the details by clicking on the 'Aug Events' PDF, featured below the images on this page.

Cables will go along BT ducts and poles where possible but some will be under pavements and verges. Each...
