Undeterred by the "iffy" weather forecast, ever-stoical Haddenham residents donned their water-proofs and warm clothing over the jubilee weekend, determined to mark the Queen's 70 years of service with clusters of local street parties.

Various roads were officially closed for the occasion, while other parties were simply arranged in larger gardens and other safe spaces, so that residents could enjoy the social interaction and the opportunity to get to know their neighbours much better.

Perhaps the most commonly uttered comment picked up by the website photographer was: "what a fantastic spread!" Indeed, this was not an occasion for counting the calories!

Lots more photographs to see in the Galleries section of this website.

If other Haddenham groups would like photos of their street party added to the archive, please feel free to email them to the editor at: haddenham.net@hotmail.com
