Haddenham Fete 14

As most residents of Haddenham and surrounding villages will know, the annual fete, organised by the parish council, is key event in Haddenham's calender. As well as providing a fun afternoon for locals and visitors, this wonderful rural village tradition also helps to raise the profile of many local not-for-profit organisations, and provides an important opportunity for fundraising.

We are grateful for the support and assistance of the many volunteers and helpers who create the event each year, through their time and commitment. We are also grateful to our residents and guests who are ready to dip into their pockets and contribute so generously to the fete's financial success.

At a meeting of the fete committee held on Thursday 10th October, the following grants were agreed for 2013:

  • Haddenham Community Library — £1,000
  • Abbeyfield Care Home — £1,000
  • Haddenham.net community website — £500
  • Haddenham Benefice Choir — £500
  • Donation towards paint costs for Age Concern to paint the Village Hall — £250
  • Haddenham Parochial Charities — £500
  • The Thursday Club — £250
