As always the Haddenham Mummers were one of the highlights as they put on their traditional play about Richard the Lionheart and the Turkish Knight.

The unusual history of the Mummers dates back to medieval times where the actors would paint their faces black to disguise themselves. The organisers paid tribute to the Haddenham Masonic Lodge for running the barbecue and all the helpers, sponsors and stall holders that made the day possible.

The ever-popular Summerfest is on July 7 at the Youth and Social Club.

The trust, which is a registered charity, donates all profits to local good causes.

The Christmas-themed day featured 21 stalls for people to browse.
