THANK YOU ALL
To the people of Soham and surrounding areas:
WOW! Thank you to everyone who came to the event today, that’s all 1,000 plus of you. When the wreath laying was done and the parade came onto the recreation ground our ‘clickers’ went mad and we couldn’t count everyone in the mass so we gave up after 1,249! Thank you all, the feed back comments have been marvellous.
