As most residents of village will know, the Haddenham Mummers bring a unique form of entertainment to local village events and pubs during the run-up to Christmas.
Their folktale performances can't help but bring a smile to the faces of everyone witnessing the distinctive and quirky form of theatre — if only in disbelief!
Most importantly the Haddenham Mummers achieve remarkable levels of fundraising for their chosen charities, and their performances preceding Christmas 2017 raised just under £3,000 — a truly noteworthy achievement.
On Saturday evening, 20th January, the Mummers got together at the Rising Sun pub to present cheques to this year's charities:
* Helen & Dougls House
* Chinnor & Princes Risbough Railway (The Icknield Line)
* Haddenham Community Library
* Society for Mucopolysaccharide Diseases
There was also a small donation made in support of this community website, for which your editor is sincerely grateful.
Well done to all the Haddenham Mummers — see you next Christmas!
