Haddenham Community Library has now recruited no less than 45 volunteers, who generously give of their time and skills to help run the library alongside the paid staff, Emma Barrett and David Morgan.

On Friday evening, 22nd March, some of those volunteers were joined by Rt Hon. John Bercow MP, Speaker of the House of Commons, to celebrate the achievements to date and to receive a charitable donation from the Haddenham Mummers.

Needless to say, given the captive audience, the Mummers didn't miss the opportunity to present their traditional play!

On the basis of their fundraising efforts over the Christmas period, the Mummers were able to present three cheques of £520 each — to Emma Barrett, manager of Haddenham Community Library; to Jenny and Andy Hardy on behalf of the Society for Mucopolysaccharide Diseases; and to Rachel and Ian Bamford on behalf of the Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia Support Group.
