FOLLOWING the devastating fire at Marlborough House on Sunday, I, on behalf of my mother, would like to express our enormous gratitude to the courage, commitment and professionalism of all the staff involved - those dealing with the immediate siuation and those that came voluntarily to help.
Thanks too to the Christ Church community who worked so hard for hours to provide copious cups of tea, sandwiches and support for all the displaced residents. Also to the many local people who arrived with clothing and blankets. Not least our thanks to all the emergency services who worked so hard throughout the day and night.
Despite the horrific circumstances it was a wonderful example of community spirit.
