The first week of June is National Volunteers' Week.
Many of Haddenham's huge number of groups and organisations flourish through the willing involvement of their many volunteers. Nowhere is this more true than at the Community Library.
Since its establishment in 2012 as a partnership with the County Council, the library staff, Emma and Ali, have been supported by some 50 volunteers trained to use the computer system and give advice on recent publications and best sellers for all ages.
The volunteers also handle the box office for Haddenham Screen, with its fortnightly season of great films. A group of the volunteers arrange social events and recently a group of 27 volunteers visited the British Library — see here.
They also support the library's community activities such as Saturday's Fete and the Scarecrow Festival, not to mention the Christmas Tree Festival in the Church.
