Channel 4 is currently broadcasting a series of TV programmes, looking at quaint and interesting villages, with a view to awarding the accolade of 'Village of the Year".
The programmes are hosted by Penelope Keith and the judges are archaeologist Alex Langlands, garden designer Juliet Sargeant and craft expert Patrick Grant.
Back in early 2017 Haddenham.net and the Parish Council were made aware that these programmes were being produced — see here — and Haddenham was invited to be involved. Parish Councillor Steve Sharp kindly compiled a briefing paper and submitted this to the programme producers, REEF TV.
In that document Steve highlighted the many attractive features of our village, in a well written piece under the headings of:
- Appearance and geography
- History and heritage
- Village events
- Activities to do in this village
- Visitor experience
As a consequence, a film crew came along in June last year to capture a flavour of Haddenham and to talk to some of our local characters — see here.
We have no idea how Haddenham will have faired in terms of the overall competition, but the village will feature in the next broadcast, details here:
Channel 4: 3.00pm on Wednesday 24th January.
So if you're not into daytime TV — or too busy earning a living (!) — set your TV recorders now.
