I thank all our parents and children who donated items over the summer months to our local residential and care homes. I had the pleasure in taking gifts around to the Sherborne homes and personally thanking them for all they have done and continue to do over this challenging period. They were thrilled that we had thought of them, and I have had lovely cards and comments back. Being a part of our community in the lovely town of Sherborne is a significant element in what we are. We want to continue to be a strong part of our community. This is the advantage of being in the center of a small and beautiful town. The best of both worlds, countryside surrounds us and the history and strength of the Sherborne community is also on our doorstep.
