What Our Community Say

This morning I had my lovely Christmas Parcel delivered by one of your hard working volunteers, I am writing to say a BIG thank you to everyone for your generosity and hard work which has gone into this enormous project. It was very much appreciated and I will enjoy all of the lovely Christmas ‘goodies’ in my parcel during the Christmas break.

Ann - Christmas Parcel Recipient

To all at Haydon Wick Council. I was 71 on Monday 7th December, and on Wednesday 9th December I received my first Christmas Hamper from you. I would like to say a big ‘Thank You’ and also how much it was appreciated. It’s packed with lovely food items which will be very useful.

Jan - Christmas Parcel Recipient

Please thank all of the people who helped with my Christmas Food Gift. It was lovely, and I can’t think what else you can put in it to make it any better. So, thank you. When my Mum moved into Greenmeadow in the 70s, she had a Christmas Gift Parcel from Haydon Wick Parish Council. It was potatoes, onions and other vegetables to make a meal. She was so thrilled that someone had thought of her. So, thank you again.

Lilian Spencer - Christmas Parcel Recipient

Working with the Parish Council has been an absolute pleasure.

Picking the winner for the Children’s Christmas Card Competition was the hardest because they were all brilliant!! After much deliberation I did finally manage to choose one. My favourite project was the bulb planting volunteering event with some of the grounds team, who were an absolute joy to work with. Thank you so much for asking me to join you.
