Glennfield Ninth Birthday Party

Glennfield Ninth Birthday Party

This afternoon I joined residents of Glennfield in Wisbech to celebrate the Care Home’s 9th Birthday.
 
Music was provided by the talented Tony G, and I enjoyed the company of Alina Whiteman (representing the RBL) and the lovely residents and their families who were there to celebrate with them.
 
It was great to get a chance to see my old friends Neville and Pauline Frusher and to chat with residents who I last saw at the karaoke afternoon I attended as Deputy Mayor.
 
Glennfield is such a nice place and I am always impressed by the dedication of its staff. As always, the event was most enjoyable and I look forward to seeing residents and staff again soon for Christmas!

TCA Remembrance

TCA Remembrance

This morning I was invited to join the students, teachers and cadets at Thomas Clarkson Academy for their remembrance service.

Students lined the balconies and stairwells, holding the names of family members who were lost in conflict.

I laid a wreath on behalf of the Town Council and paid my respects.

During the service and the silence, despite thousands of students in close proximity, you could have heard a pin drop.

What an honour it was to attend the school’s Remembrance event and to be a small part of it.  The students and staff of the school did the Town and themselves proud and their clear and profound respect for those who have fallen to keep us all safe was evident and obvious.

Thank you for inviting me to attend.
