The pages of Haddenham.net are filled with news and photographs of our young children enjoying their pre-Christmas events and activities and, along with other parents and grandparents, your website editor gains much pleasure from seeing their smiling faces and their proud looks as they perform in their school shows.
But let us not forget our senior residents, who also know how to have fun and embrace the spirit of Christmas when the yuletide season is upon us.
On Wednesday 14th December, members and guests of the Haddenham Sixty-Plus Cub gathered in the Youth & Community Centre to enjoy a Christmas luncheon, the odd glass of sherry or two and a chance to indulge in a bit of a sing-song!
Musical entertainment was kindly provided by the Black Dog Band, who served up an eclectic repertoire of tunes, ranging from foot-tapping Country Music and some well-known folk ballads right through to familiar Christmas Carols.
Each guest also received a Christmas gift, donated by the Committee members and Friends of the Sixty-Plus Club.
These include Mary Wellby, Joan Dharamshi, Monica Fearnley, Mary Price, Joanna Wilkinson, Jeanne Marshall, Joan Pratt, Gill Dudley, Pat Withey and Chris Butterworth, not forgetting 'Margaret the Sherry Lady'!
Val Young made and iced the Christmas cake, and a splendid job she made of it as the photograph shows. (Please click on any of the photos to see a full version of each image).
The Club is run on a voluntary basis by these hard working folk, and has benefitted from financial support from Haddenham Parish Council, The Beer Festivals Trust, the Haddenham Fete and the kindness and generosity of the Haddenham Masonic Lodge.
A wide group of individual donors also keep the Sixty-Plus Club meetings well supplied with cakes throughout the year!
If you know of any local folk who might like to participate in the activities of the Sixty-Plus Club, you can find out more from Mary Wellby — Telephone: 01844 290036 or Email: email@example.com
Or keep an eye on the Events diary on this website: the Club meets at 2.00pm in the Youth & Community Centre (next to the Junior School, on Woodways) on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
