Results of our Over Haddon Village Hall survey 

Earlier this year, the village hall committee devised a survey and questionnaire for you to indicate what type of events you’d like to support. 121 surveys were taken to every household in the village and immediate farms – and 36 were returned. Results for the categories suggested on the form were: Games/quiz, 18; Music, 16; History, 16; Talks, 15; Dance, 11; Drama, 10; Crafts, 9.

Other ideas suggested by villagers: Treasure Hunt, pot luck supper/lunch, gardening club, community shop, wildlife/birds, bridge/whist/canasta, children’s crafts, children’s disco party, visits out by minibus, Workers Educational Association classes, cooking demos, karaoke – and even one request for pole dancing!

Thanks to those who replied – there is plenty for our social sub committee to be going on with…..watch this space!

Over Haddon Well-Dressing Committee makes donations to charity

Good news! Our well-dressing committee has donated £200 to each of these charities following last year’s event:

Target Ovarian Cancer is the UK’s leading ovarian cancer charity. It works to improve early diagnosis, fund life-saving research and provide much-needed support  to women with ovarian cancer.

Dukes Barn Outdoor Activity Centre provides adventurous activities for people of all ages and abilities. The centre is situated in Beeley, which is one of the villages on the Chatsworth Estate, in the heart of the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire. Its primary focus is children with special needs including autism, Asperger’s syndrome, Down’s syndrome, children with hearing or sight impairment and those with physical disabilities including wheelchair users. It also runs courses for primary and secondary school children and those from disadvantaged backgrounds or poor inner city areas.

Village Aid works with people in Africa to secure long-term positive change in their lives. It achieves this by developing strong working relationships with local community partners, supporting them to build their own capacity and supporting the delivery of projects including education and learning, securing livelihoods and advocacy and justice. From rural Peak District to rural Africa, Village Aid believes in people working together in partnership. 

The Farming Life Centre provides health/well-being and business-related information and support to the farming and rural community of the Derbyshire and Staffordshire Peak District. It runs projects to address the (often hidden) health, social and economic inequalities and deprivation within the upland farming community, which are delivered at outreach locations and from its base in the Agricultural Centre, in Bakewell.  The underlying ethos of all its initiatives is to improve the resilience of the rural community by supporting its residents of all ages to deal with their challenges in a timely way – before they reach a point of crisis.

Fancy trying one of our coffee mornings? 

Nothing beats a nice cup of coffee or tea in the morning – so why not have one surrounded by friends?

The Over Haddon Village Hall Open Coffee Morning happens most Fridays from 11am. There’s free tea, coffee and chat – what more could you want? And the best part is that everyone is welcome, so it’s great way to meet the wonderful people in our village.
