Issue 7 - Bouquet goes to Sarah Wright of Kilburn
Sarah Wright receives her bouquet

Show your appreciation for a friend, fellow member of the community or family member and surprise them with a fresh bouquet of flowers courtesy of All Things Local and The Flower Shop.

The recipient of this issue’s bouquet Sarah Wright of Kilburn (on right of picture). She was nominated by her neighbour Caz Mattocks (on left). Here’s Caz’s nomination:

I would like to nominate my neighbour Sarah for flowers because she is so warm-hearted and kind.

Our neighbour Derek, sadly, passed away recently. His wife died in 2001, they didn’t have children and his family live in Yorkshire.

Sarah made the last few years of his life as happy as she could. She went one big step further than being a good neighbour and made Derek part of her family involving him and welcoming him into her home. This is exceptional alone but when you also consider Sarah works at the local school, has two sons and during this time the eldest son suffered Hodgkin’s disease and under went chemotherapy you begin to get an idea of what an incredible woman she is.

If you met Sarah, even just for a few minutes, I am sure you would want to give her the flowers ten times over.

Thanking you
Caz Mattocks

What you've been saying about All Things Local...

“ Hi, I don't normally write to magazine editors, but I thought you deserved to know that your magazine (Ripley Edition) is really, really good. Any other free paper / mag goes straight into the bin (then taken out and put into the recycling by my wife). Your mag has something about it that makes me read it cover to cover and then keep it handy until the next edition. Keep up the great work - you deserve to succeed. Cheers“

Steve, Ripley
