NEW BID TO TRANSFORM GURTEENS
It was hoped that one of the oldest problems in the jigsaw of Haverhill town centre could be solved if a new partnership was successful.
The bosses of Gurteen’s and of the development company which had masterminded Haverhill Business Park agreed a deal to try and break the current deadlock over the firm’s historic Chauntry Mills site.
Christopher Gurteen and Nic Rumsey reckoned two or three years might see a scheme developed allowing the company to relocate within the town and the site to be re-fashioned for the future.
ANGER AT LETTER SENT TO DEAD DAD
Haverhill man Ray Thake was left angered after St Edmundsbury Council sent a letter to his dad asking him to arrange for repairs to be made to the headstone of his sister Lil’s grave in Haverhill cemetery.
The problem was that Ray’s dad, Clifford, had been dead for four years and not even lived at the address the letter was sent to for nine years.
The council had apologised to Mr Thake for any upset caused.
