Christmas visit to Ferendune Court

In December instead of our staff ‘Secret Santa’ Town Council staff decided to each donate some gifts to create a hamper to take to residents at Ferendune Court and also to give to the Police to go to vulnerable members of our community. The Councillors also donated gifts and we between us we collected 2 large hampers and other gifts that were wrapped and given to the PCSOs for distribution.

On the 23rd of December Town Council Staff and Councillors went along to have a cup of tea and mince pies with residents at Ferendune Court. A lovely time was had by all and it was fantastic to meet such lovely members of our community.
