Promising entertainers of all ages took part in ‘Haddenham’s Got Talent’ over the weekend.

Lauren Timberlake, who sang Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s ‘Power of Love’, was crowned the winner for the second year running after an audience vote.

More than £600 was raised at the event for the Epilepsy Society.

The contest was held in memory of Hannah Bourke, who organised the first Haddenham’s Got Talent to raise money for Path to Africa.

Other performers were:

> Hanna Clements, who told the tale of the frustrations of living in a noisy apartment block

> Paul Booth, who sang and played his own songs

> Oli Giles and Vicky Wyatt, who did a singing sketch

> Adrian Ripley, who did a ‘memory man’ demonstration

> Mary Pritchard, who recited her own poetry

> Emma Batting, who did a rendition of Adele’s ‘Set Fire to the Rain’

> Kim Biddulph, who sang an Abba medley

> ‘Wings of Icarus’, a two-piece band with Benedict Quinn and Brewster Mason singing their own compositions

The event, which was organised by Lynne Colley, was held in the village’s Youth and Community Centre on Saturday (September 7).
