Cllrs Chambers and Hounsell presented Bob Heap with a certificate of appreciation for his part in our first Christmas tree switch on. Bob – 95 years old – was born in Thornton and lived there for most of his life never having moved far from its boundaries. He possesses a wealth of knowledge about local history and has seen the small parish change over the last century. On receiving the certificate he said that he hoped that the first Christmas tree might bring our community closer together. The Parish Council would like to thank all residents who came to the switch on and is already planning for a larger event next year
