For many years the parishioners of the Catholic Church of the Good Shepherd in Haddenham have been giving consideration to the construction of a church meeting room which could be used for meetings and social gatherings. A couple of years ago Fr Leszek set up a small working party to develop plans and to obtain planning permission, which was received towards the end of 2015. At the same time Mary Chettle who was a parishioner of many years standing died and left the parish a very generous legacy which was sufficient to fund the cost of constructing the new hall.

The work commenced in April 2016 and by the end of August the major work had been completed and there was a new building with a meeting room, an office for the priest, a well equipped kitchen and wash room facilities. As part of the work the car park has been resurfaced and the private courtyard at the back of the church is to be tastefully repaved.

The attached pictures show the progress of the building work from the foundations to the completed building.
