Latterday Xmas Gifts

During November children from Haddenham Community Junior School and Haddenham St Mary's CE School have visited the village museum as part of their work on the local community and 'Toys of Days Gone By' respectively.

The Chairman of the Museum Trustees, Alan Rose, and Education and Publicity Trustee Margaret Watkins talked to the children about the artefacts and toys on display. Helped by Trustees Ken Perry and Steve Sharp, four groups of children were hosted on two separate days and showed a lively interest in all they were shown.

The display of Christmas presents in days gone by will remain on view until Christmas. It is not only a display for children but will be sure to bring back happy memories to adults of all ages.

The Museum will also have a Christmas tree on display at the Village Christmas Tree Festival in St Mary's Church on 11 — 13 December.

The Museum will then close in January and February, opening again on 1st March 2016.
