A BIG THANK YOU


Dear Friends and Neighbours of Haddenham and the surrounding villages

A year ago, who would have thought that a virus could have wreaked havoc
to our normal way of life and especially to our Christmas family celebrations

Something had to be done to brighten our days, and
Haddenham Rotary were determined to do that “something”

As an act of kindness we decided to place bunches of flowers
around the village from late November to Christmas

Our hope was to brighten an otherwise dull, dreary and even dark day
for those who found the flowers

Your response has been amazing
The kind words of appreciation that you have written on social media
make our efforts all worthwhile
 
On behalf of myself and all of my Haddenham Rotary colleagues
a big thank you, you are very kind
 
We look forward to next year when, hopefully
we can meet once again and work with the village
providing support when and where it is needed

Keep well and keep safe



Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year
