I would like to say a huge thank you for the wonderful gesture that you as a village presented to me on Sunday.
I feel thoroughly touched by your generosity and I was amazed that I am held in such high regard by so many of you.
It was so nice to see all of the familiar faces in the reading room and to be able to chat and catch up. I will do my upmost to keep in touch with you all. If I didn't get the chance to speak to you I can only apologize and that we can catch up again soon.
I also want to thank Pauline and the team for their hard work during the teas and for the delicious cake that was supplied ( and more sent home with me, of which I may have had more than my daily ration).
So again a huge thank you for your generosity and friendship
