The Whistler Bar

It's been a busy few months since we opened The Whistler 6 months ago today.

We would like to thank everyone for visiting us and hope that you have enjoyed yourselves.

We would also like to thank Haddenham Fete who contributed funds to purchase 2 of the new benches outside on our brand new patio which is being well used by customers of The Whistler as well as residents of the village to watch the football or just enjoy a sit down in the lovely surroundings. Also, thanks to Haddenham Beer Festival who contributed funds towards our new ice machine and glass washer.

We would also like to thank the Beer Festival for allowing us to host the England v France World Cup match on the large outdoor screen that they had hired — sadly we didn't win but a great evening was had by everyone.

A lot of hard work by many people went into the initial refurbishment and we are continuing the improvements through 2023 as and when funds permit. New carpets are being laid early 2023 and later on in the year we are planning to buy new indoor furniture.

We have been working closely with the Parish Council and as you will have seen, the outside of the building has now been completely redecorated — not just The Whistler. Other projects are currently being looked at by the Parish Council: decorating of the hall, replacement of the toilet facilities and decorating throughout.

Thank you from The Whistler Committee to everyone, we wouldn't be where we are without your ongoing support.

Please follow our Facebook and Instagram pages so that you are kept informed of forthcoming events.
