    Story

    Each year we will set up a Community Memory Christmas tree in honour of Cllr John Orrick. John spent all his life working to improve the lives of those in his community. His positve energy and infectious smile spread joy wherever he went!

    The Community will be able to make donations of £5 or more to the scheme. For their donations they will be able to dedicate a Bauble in the name of a lost loved one which will then be placed on the tree right up until Christmas eve.

    We aim to raise funds for the ‘Christmas at Home' scheme managed by the The Westway . This scheme will provide a full Christmas Dinner and gifts to those shielding or in isolation and families who have been affected by the economic impact of Covid 19.

    Type the message you would like in your bauble in the 'Leave a message of support' box.
