POPPY COLLECTIONS STOLEN
Thieves showed little respect for those who died in conflicts when they stole a collection tin for the Poppy Appeal from Haverhill business, M&M Leisure, on Armistice Day.
And, on Remembrance Sunday, as parades were preparing to get under way, another Poppy Appeal box was stolen from Sainsbury’s in Haverhill.
The thefts came just weeks after thieves broke into a Haverhill funeral parlour and stole the jewellery of a dead woman from a safe at a funeral parlour.
FIRE BLAZE COUPLE TIE THE KNOT
Nick Totty and Jo Hambloch got married at Castle Camps parish church before holding a reception at the Cock pub in the village, which happened to be next door to their thatched cottage that had gone up in flames the previous month.
The couple’s big day was made even more special by the news that Jo, who had cancer of the bowel, was making a good recovery after having a tumour removed in August.
Rebuilding work on their cottage was due to start the following month.
