Thank you to everyone who supported us via the Community Matters Donation Programme at Waitrose. Your support earned a total of £413 during the month of December and today we received our cheque from the Stratford store.
The donation will support the Memorial Bench Project which together with donations from 11 friends and supporters has allowed us to reach our target.
In March two new hard wood benches will be installed replacing the rather dilapidated existing benches.
The Town Trust are due to landscape the area and position the two picnic tables at either side. They have also agreed to install concrete slabs in front of the two benches to avoid future erosion.
We hope the new benches and tables benefit everyone who uses the location. We thank our donors, Waitrose and the Town Trust for making the project possible.
