HONESTY PAID OFF
Honesty paid off for two young Haverhill children who found £20 outside John Doree’s shop in Queen Street on Friday afternoon.
Carolyne and Barry Morgan, of Wentworth Terrace, gave the money to Mr Doree and asked him to take it to the police station as they had to go home.
“They were so honest that after taking the money to the station, we decided the children could come back the following day and choose anything at all from the shop as a gift,” said Marie Doree, who ran the shop.
ROVERS HANG ON FOR CUP VICTORY
Haverhill won this battle of the two rovers teams in Tuesday’s East Anglian Cup second round tie which brought some seasonal cheer to Hamlet Croft after the previous week’s Vase debacle.
All the scoring came in an eventful first half. Haverhill came out on top, but missed a lot of chances.
Haverhill looked hungry and, after 15 minutes, Alistair Suddery scored with a header.
Two more goals came for Haverhill. The second half was a non-scoring anti-climax.
