Forty glittering Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes greeted hundreds of visitors to St. Mary's Church, Haddenham when the highly successful Community Christmas tree Festival ran for its second year, from Thursday 11th until Sunday 14th December. Not only was the community spirit evident, so too was a wonderful display of creativity.
Tots, teenagers and adults alike helped to make a vibrant display of their organisations' trees reflecting the diversity of clubs, groups and organisations in the village.
The atmosphere was enhanced with Christmas music from Haddenham's Handbells, Recorder Group and Witchert Chorale.
Delicious home-made cakes were served and many people took the opportunity for a time of quiet contemplation away from the hustle and bustle of the commercial side of Christmas.
Generous donations were made towards the Aylesbury Homeless Action Group and Friends of St. Mary's.
Organisers Juanita Hughes, Lizzie Bannister and Jenny Hardy would like to thank all those who contributed their wonderful trees, and for the technical support which made the event possible.
If you weren't able to get along, more photos can be seen in the GALLERIES section of this website.
