Rose Garden clean up — 16th August 2019

Rose garden

The Rose Garden in Church Street had really become a jungle and needed tender loving care. In other words, it needed a really good weeding and pruning. Five trusty people decided to tackle the task, pruning shears hack saws at the ready, after two hours the “jungle” had been torn down and a nice looking garden again had again appeared. Thanks to David & Margaret Palmer, Jen Robinson, Alan Hobbs and Peter Davies. Then it was off with a very full trailer of the cuttings, which with the help of D&M plus Peter were soon disposed of.

Margaret Harris – sponsor of “Here comes Harris”

MARGARET HARRIS FUNERAL 15TH JULY 2019 (2)

Margaret was one of our first sponsors at Whittlesey Street Pride, a very amicable person, who had a wonderful business acumen. Margaret did not suffer fools gladly and would soon point out to them, the error of their ways. She was there for us and did not hesitate at any time to sponsor the “Pride of Whittlesey” which is located at the truck stop in Kings Delph.

Nice to have known you Margaret you were a fantastic person and will be sadly missed, but remembered with great fondness.

Rest In Peace.

Sincere condolences to  the family.
