Thanks to everyone who help prepare hanging baskets and planters around Chatteris town centre

On behalf of the people of Chatteris, I would like to express my sincere appreciation of the hard work carried out by volunteers in the town over the past few weeks.

Last week a small but dedicated group of volunteers, including members of Chatteris in Bloom and the Christmas Lights Committee, put up the hanging baskets and planters you very clearly see around the town centre.

This was done despite the usual pressures of only a small number of people being available to carry out this work for the greater benefit of everyone, whether they are residents or visitors to the town.

This year once again Chatteris will be judged by Anglia in Bloom so naturally I’m sure we all hope that volunteers will be justly rewarded for their efforts.

But, as with so many community groups, there is always something that needs to be done and it usually falls on the shoulders of just a small number of folks to carry out the work.

So if you feel that you would like to help be a part of the team that helps make Chatteris look so much more attractive – give them a call!

As the old saying goes: ‘many hands make light work’.
