Support from our local community:

In the last Newsletter, Jean Harrison included an appeal for help with keeping the website up to date. Nick Forsyth, Managing Partner at Braintree-based Accountants Lambert Chapman LLP and a corporate member of the Friends, read this and arranged for Katie Gardner, their Marketing Executive to work with Jean and bring the website up-to-date. The results are evident and we are very grateful to Nick and Katie for their ongoing help.
