After The War Was Over 33
After The War Was Over 35

The Double Bill event, held in St Mary's Church on 10th November 2018 to commemorate the centenary of the First World War Armistice, raised £2,000. This has been divided equally between The Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes.

Many thanks to all who took part and especially to David Quinn who formed the choir and directed the choral Music for Remembrance in the first half of the event and to Margaret Watkins who wrote and directed the play "After The War Was Over" staged in the second half.

Many thanks also to the Haddenham Players who supported the event and provided the administrative framework necessary for its successful management.
