Warmest congratulations to Tim Armitt and his large and enthusiastic team of organisers, helpers and contributors, who provided Haddenham with another wonderful village fete on Saturday 6th June. The afternoon was a delightful event: the kind of activity that defines Haddenham and its warm community spirit.

Here is Tim's report:

The sun shone on Haddenham on Saturday for the 2015 Village Fete — with many local clubs and organisations, individuals and performers turning out to provided a wonderful day out for everybody.

The variety of stalls, games and food offerings was greater than we have ever seen, with some notable additions to the day such as the Classic Car exhibition arranged by Jerome Flaxton, which as a notable and very successful initiative, receiving many accolades from enthusiastic visitors.

The committee excelled themselves to produce a smooth and efficient event in an idyllic setting.

The open gardens have become a particular favourite and thanks go to all who have been prepared to allow the public in to these havens of delight in order to raise money for good causes.

We anticipate a record year with regard to fund raising, and have been impressed with the amounts raised for charity over and above what the Fete Committee will be able to distribute.

The entertainment was local and brilliant! Thanks go to The Ian English Jazz Trio, Sing! Community Choir, The Haddenham Hoofers and the Drumming workshop lead by Andy Price and Juanita Hughes.

Teas were served in the St Mary's Centre by an army of willing volunteers. The tables were laden with spectacular cakes for very appreciative visitors.

Thanks go to all who came to support and all who worked so hard!

There are lots of photos from the fete in the GALLERIES section of this website. Are you or any or your family featured?!
