TROLLEY GOOD NEWS

Alan and Lorna Clark’s Christmas was very special thanks to three pieces of good news.

The Haverhill couple first celebrated their ruby wedding anniversary before Alan then heard he would be able to have a heart transplant.

The couple, of Abbotts Road, then enjoyed even more good news when Lorna won the Echo’s Co-op trolley dash, walking away with more than £100 worth of groceries.

‘WORTHWHILE PROJECT’ IN ITS FINAL STAGES

Building work at the £6.5 million Granta School in Linton entered its final stages, and with the roof on, work was able to take place inside during the winter without the risk of it being ruined by the weather.

The new headteacher of the school, Lucie Calow, celebrated reaching the point with the building contractors by having a ‘topping up’ ceremony.

The school was due to open in September 2006 and would be able to take up to 160 pupils with special needs and was to be kitted out with state-of-the-art equipment, including hi-tech sensory rooms and a hydrotherapy pool.
