The Museum Trust's Treasure Hunt proved very popular with families and groups of friends on Sunday afternoon 11th August, with some 55 participants hunting for clues around the village, many with an historical link.
Top honours went to Janet Robinson who was the only individual to achieve the perfect score. Our warmest congratulations to her, the clever clogs!
One of our photographs shows Janet receiving the prize from Margaret Watkins — namely, a full set of Haddenham Chronicles and a box of chocolates.
The Treasure Hunt got a very clear 'thumbs up' from all the participants, and the proceeds added to the Museum Trust funds amounted to about £100.
Trustees would like to thanks everyone who helped, and participated.
